With an 80 year old Martin Luther King Jr. listening, could Obama have possibly have had the audacity to argue that Rev. Dr. King was wrong about US wars in his acceptance speech of the ludicrous Nobel Peace prize for his work toward peace in continuing a war of occupation of the entire innocent nation of Afghanistan and initiating heavy drone bombing of Pakistan?

Today, an 83 years honest King would have long been pitying an Obama weighted down with the deaths of so many thousands of Muslim children upon his conscience, as the president piled up deadly naval forces off the coast of Syria, claiming that its government, in spite of worrisomely defeating the US armed and backed terrorists, had, incredibly, decided to give the US an excuse for a repeat of the destruction of Libya, by letting loose a gas attack on its own citizens on the very day inspectors from the UN were due to arrive.

After King was assassinated, the genocidal undeclared war in Vietnam continued for another eight years and unconstitutional and illegal invasions and bombings that are crimes against humanity, as clearly defined in the universally accepted Nuremberg Principles, continued against dozens of poor nations vulnerable to US firepower up through the present. Now a WW III is being heavily invested in, bases being built encircling China and Russia.[7]

If Martin Luther King Jr. were alive today, one imagines he would be successfully leading the call for the prosecution of US crimes against humanity just as he had successfully led prosecution of racist crime in the court of public opinion.  Earlier in the year in which he received a bullet to his head, King had read the horrific evidence presented at the Bertrand Russell International War Crimes Tribunal concerned with the Vietnam War and with repression in Latin America.  Had King lived a year longer, he would have followed the trial of his close friend and expected running mate, (should King have chosen to make a run for the US Presidency), renown baby doctor Benjamin Spock for conspiracy to interfere with the draft and calling for the refusal of illegal or criminal military orders. At his trial Spock referred to the "higher law" brought out at the time of the Nuremberg postwar trials of Nazi leaders. That law, he said, made it morally necessary to disobey when "your government is up to crimes against humanity."

For this reason, the Howard Zinn and Ramsey Clark co-founded and celebrity endorsed Martin Luther King Jr. Condemned US Wars International Awareness Campaign website carries a link to the Prosecute US Crimes Against Humanity Campaign, a purely educational information website that lists the pertinent laws, exhortations of Albert Einstein, former US Attorney General Ramsey Clark, Noam Chomsky and others and features a country-by-country history of US crimes.

During his civil rights fight King had became aware that when businessmen are made to find it necessary, when calculating what to invest in, to include a factor of possible imprisonment, seizure of assets to compensate wrongful death, injury, destruction of property, criminal investments are reconsidered and peace comes non-violently with the enforcement of indisputable laws.

 Unveiling The Monument But NOT King's Condemnation Of U.S. Wars for Wall St."OpEdNews, October 17, 2011 How do the vibrant with emotion eulogies of King's daughter, sister, son, and two men who held the dying King in their arms (and went on to successful political careers), sound to the demonstrators of Occupy Wall St., when all mention of King's condemnation of U.S. wars and the "unjust predatory investments they meant to maintain" is calculatedly omitted. "Silence is betrayal!" cried out King at Riverside Church in 1967. click here

There Was No Libyan Peaceful Protest - Information Clearing House  http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article28376.htm"
There Was No Libyan Peaceful Protest, Just Murderous Gangs and Nic Robertson
Robertson and Anderson Cooper are surely aware of their achievement in promoting human carnage and the destruction of  a beautifully well-kept and prosperous nation. Their war mongering within purposely distorted reporting, misreporting, disinformation, and blacking out of information that would have made this massive loss of life impossible. They'll not be able to wash this off their conscience.
      There were no peaceful protests!
     CNN, covering the Danish Cartoons anniversary demonstration that was coopted with an announcement from London to make it into a "day of rage against Libyan leader Gaddafi,' showed us camera panning of a modest size crowd (mostly men) jumping up and down shouting against Gaddafi (not against Libya's high standard of living).
    There were armed attacks on police stations (even traffic police) and vicious attacks on Chinese and Korea construction workers already two days before, and during the anniversary of the Danish Cartoons or "day of rage,' executions of 50 captured Libyan soldiers, one beheaded, some hung along with police officers. And who knows how many ordinary Libyan civilians harmed by tough guys brought in to Benghazi and other Cyrenaican towns. This was reported by Reuters and BBC, but not CNN.
    CNN showed a video of a small amount of people scattering, running at twilight, cell phone camera jerking around in confusion with the sound of shooting from completely unidentified sources. There was Anderson Cooper and Nic Robertson crying out that "Gaddafi', was "targeting, shooting, bombing his own people who only want democracy. At the same time a flood of anti Gaddafi reports were coming in from well funded Libyan exile backers in various countries.
   . Imagine! On Feb. 21 a bare four days after the overseas calls for "day of rage' U.S. media's UK counterpart, the Telegraph reported that " the International Federation for Human Rights said Libya's second city along with Sirte, Tobruk, Misrata, Khoms, Tarhounah, Zenten, Al-Zawiya and Zouara had all been taken by protesters. "Protesters?" We were given to see these tough hombre heavily armed "freedom fighters' in their fleets of pickup trucks looking nothing at all like protesters.
     While, very quickly, heavily armed insurgent gangs, always described as "ordinary citizens who had dropped their office jobs a few days before to fight for freedom,' were efficiently overrunning towns and airports, Cooper and Robertson kept excitedly exclaiming cities were being bombed from the air - civilians targeted - showing viewers the same single bomb crater in a field outside of a town for five days running as proof, though oddly admitting no one had been injured.
     CNN and NY Times have never reported that Libya, as opposed to desperately poor Egypt and Yemen enjoys a higher standard of living than nine European nations including Russia. Rather, they continue emphasizing Western media condemnation of Gaddafi over his entire four decades of leadership of Libya and the movement for African Union.
     In less than 2 weeks came Obama's executive orders freezing Libyan accounts or confiscating Libyan accounts of billions of dollars for eventual use by insurgents. Even earlier began the threats from international institutions beholden to U.S. and NATO, and open speculation by the same coalition of former colonial powers that had once conquered and ruled the entire non-white world for centuries, of military action against "Gaddafi' (that would add a sixth Muslim nation to its bombing list of Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Yemen and Pakistan.

The Green Book (Arabic: الكتاب الأخضر" al-Kitāb al-Aḫḍar) is a short book setting out the political philosophy of the former Libyan leader, Muammar Gaddafi. First published in 1975, it was "intended to be required reading for all Libyans."It is said to have been inspired in part by The Little Red Book (Quotations from Chairman Mao).[2] Both were widely distributed both inside and outside their country of origin, and "written in a simple, understandable style with many memorable slogans." An English translation was issued by the Libyan People's Committee, and a bilingual English/Arabic edition was issued in London by Martin, Brian & O'Keeffe in 1976.
The book caused a scandal in 1987, when West German ice hockey club ECD Iserlohn, led by Heinz Weifenbach, signed a US$900,000 advertising deal for the book.
Libyan children spent two hours a week studying the book as part of their curriculum; extracts were broadcast every day on television and radio; its slogans were found on billboards and painted on buildings in Libya; and by 1993 lectures and seminars on it at universities and colleges had been held in France, Eastern Europe, Colombia, and Venezuela.
The Green Book consists of three parts and has 110 pages with 200 words or more on each page.
The Solution of the Problem of Democracy: The Authority of the People (published in late 1975)
The Solution of the Economic Problem: Socialism (published in early 1977)
The Social Basis of the Third International Theory (published in September 1981)
The Green Book rejects modern liberal democracy based on electing representatives as well as capitalism. Instead, it proposes a type of direct democracy overseen by the General People's Committee which allow direct political participation for all adult citizens.
The book states that "Freedom of expression is the right of every natural person, even if a person chooses to behave irrationally, to express his or her insanity." However, freedom of speech is based on public ownership of book publishers, newspapers, television, and radio stations, on the grounds that private ownership would be undemocratic.
