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:

The Afghan Opium Trade

And who controls the drug trade, not those street corner sellers nor the ones they work for, it's controlled by wealthy suits around this planet and more lucrative then running corporations or playing craps on wall street!

31-Year CIA Vet on US Attempts to Remake the World in Its Image

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. Total runtime fifty five minutes. Enjoy!

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.

Video: Song for Bradley Manning By David Rovics

Private Manning was an analyst if what they say is true
He was paid to read reports and find the patterns sifting through
As he read the data the patterns did emerge
Patterns that were clear both before and since the Surge
Patterns of abuse of the most horrific kind
Gunning down civilians out of view and out of mind
Gunning down the opposition in the middle of the night
Sending off the scholars to be tortured out of sight
Sometimes you need desperate measures when you live in desperate times
And Private Manning saw he was looking at war crimes
He wondered what to do to allow the dead to speak
He finally decided to contact Wikileaks
Now it's all out on the table and everybody knows
The emperor is naked, he's not wearing any clothes

Now Adrian Lamo has to live within his skin
He stabbed Bradley in the back, called the cops and turned him in
But not before the soldier took half a million files
If you printed all the pages they'd stretch on for miles
