The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. We must all do more to help stop this western corporate arrogance that puts the future generations lives in despair. @BruceKGagnon

MLK: 'Approaching spiritual death'



Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., took a public and unpopular stand against the Vietnam War, declaring it an enemy of the poor in the United States. 

In his 1967 speech, Beyond Vietnam, King argued that young African-American men were sent “to guarantee liberties in Southeast Asia which they had not found in southwest Georgia or East Harlem”.

This other side of MLK is not often acknowledged during the annual national holiday remembrances.  

But MLK's assassination by the CIA-FBI was most likely carried out because of his anti-war position - just one year to the day after making his controversial Vietnam War speech at Riverside Church in New York City.
