I kept hearing rumors of some War Department claim about Dr. Martin Luther King, and the link to the press release just drifted into my email box. The quoted official says:
“I believe that if Dr. King were alive today, he would recognize that we live in a complicated world, and that our nation's military should not and cannot lay down its arms and leave the American people vulnerable to terrorist attack...”
The claim is the United States is like the "Good Samaritan" who helps others in need - like the people of Iraq and Afghanistan!! The brown people of Iraq and Afghanistan who the United States has been killing at will for almost 10 years, that is. The people the United States government thinks are sitting on "our oil" while they "threaten our ally" Israel.
You know that little nation with hundreds of (unadmitted) nuclear weapons with which it (not very subtly) threatens the world - and inevitably the U.S. It will use them if anything or anyone threatens its stranglehold on too much of that stolen land. Like Iran's nuclear power program which Israel has noisily been sabotaging, threatening an "Iranian Chernobyl." See my Samson Option article. Hmmm, I doubt King would approve of Israel today!
RussiaToday has two Youtube segments on Martin Luther King against war today. (You see, Russia is still scared U.S. warmonger crazies will pre-emptively nuke it!)
