Martin and the War

I meant to post a link to MLK's Viet Nam speech on Monday, and compare the situation he describes to that currently in Iraq, but didn't get to it. This expresses it so much better than I could (click on the picture to make it bigger):

Also, you might be interested in this 1995 article about the last year of MLK's life, which is pretty much ignored by the media. Martin continued to work, not just for civil rights, but against the war and for social justice. This part of his life is mostly ignored––wouldn't want to bring up issues that would make the ruling class unhappy.
