Martin Luther King, Jr.: "I Have a Dream...to Go to War?!"

 

The Pentagon sank to a new low this week in their attempt to sell the Afghanistan War to the American people. At their Martin Luther King, Jr., Day observance, a Pentagon official actually claimed that if King were alive today, he might support the war.

This is simply not true. As shown in our new video, Dr. King could not have been more clear in his 1967 speech denouncing the Vietnam War:

From George Kenney's Electric Politics

Inflection Points

Chauvet cave painting of bearsWhat's the attraction of trying to remake the world so that everybody becomes like us? My answer is it's the logical extension of a terrifying, still very much alive American system of slavery but whatever your favorite explanation, the project itself is doomed. When will we ever learn? To talk about the bigger picture I turned once again to a friend, Dr. David B. Kanin, who until recently was a senior CIA analyst. Thanks very much, David, for your insights.

Deadly Legacy: Cluster Bombs

Deadly legacy of US cluster bombs in Loas

 

January 11, 2011 - ELIZABETH JACKSON: It was called America's Secret War.

From 1964 and 1973, the US dropped 260 million cluster submunitions on Laos in a covert mission to destroy North Vietnamese supply lines.

Not only did the mission fail ... it left a deadly legacy; 80 million unexploded bombs scattered across the Laos countryside.

The bombs have killed or maimed more than 20,000 people since the war ended and they're a major obstacle to economic development in one of Asia's poorest nations.

This year, Australia signed a new international treaty banning the use of cluster bombs.

A Senate committee is currently considering a bill to ratify the treaty but critics say the bill doesn't go far enough to help end the scourge of cluster munitions.
