Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library, Washington, DC by Jay Janson

Martin Luther King Jr.:
""The greatest purveyor of violence in the world today is my own government. US Wars and violence overseas are all meant to maintain unjust predatory investments."

President Barack Obama:
"We intervened in Libya alongside a broad coalition, and with the mandate of the U.N. Security Council, because we had the ability to stop the slaughter of innocents; and because we believed that the aspirations of the people were more powerful than a tyrant."

["Intervened" = striking with missiles and bombing the not unpopular Arab Socialist Government of oil wealthy Libya of a higher UN Human Development Index than nine European nations, already under attack by CIA, M16, French, Israeli, Turkish, Saudi secret services financed armed gangs, including al Qaeda, trying to bring re-division of Libya to the previous seven thousand year separation of Cyrenaica (Benghazi) and Tripolitania.] [3] [4]

["UN Security Council" = usually controlled by the US and its European Allies, denounced by various Presidents of the UN General Assembly and labeled 'A Council of Terror' by the Chairman of the African Union for being from the beginning, with its calling for the invasion of Korea, consistently representing the US foreign policy of war and violence.]

[ "stop the slaughter of innocents" = a pretext based on successful deceit by the war promoting anchors of the widely watched CNN with not one single photo or video of substantiation.] [5]


["tyrant" = a leader of the Colonial Powers oppressed third world who opposes Western imperialism, who nationalized his nation's oil profits in order to provide housing, free health care and education for his people and led the forming of an African Union to oppose Europe and American plundering exploitation of Africa and its people - a leader, who, in the investors managed media of the West, was constantly slandered as as evil since nationalizing investor oil profits]
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Martin Luther King Jr.:
"Look across the seas and see individual capitalists of the West investing huge sums of money in Asia, Africa, and South America, only to take the profits out with no concern for the social betterment of the country. This is a role our nation has taken, " refusing to give up the privileges and the pleasures that comes from the immense profits of overseas investments. This is not just."

President Barack Obama:
"Arab Spring.*  Since then, the world has been captivated by the transformation that has taken place, and the United States has supported the forces of change.
We were inspired by the Tunisian protests that toppled a dictator, because we recognized our own beliefs in the aspirations of men and women who took to the streets.
We insisted on change in Egypt, because our support for democracy put us on the side of the people.
We supported a transition of leadership in Yemen, because the interests of the people were not being served by a corrupt status quo. " **

* [ 'Arab Spring' = a corporatist-owned mass media intentionally misleading euphemism for massively supported (in the tens of thousands) peaceful revolutions against US maintained cruel dictators in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, and elsewhere and meant to include Libya where no American support dictatorship existed].
** [A "corrupt status quo" and set of dictators in all three countries supported by the US and European financial element they served,  heavily armed by investor beholden US Presidents and European Prime Ministers]
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Martin Luther King Jr.:
  "Deadly Western arrogance has poisoned the international atmosphere for so long. They must see Americans as strange liberators
We encouraged them with our huge financial and military supplies to continue the war
Soon we would be paying almost the full costs of this tragic attempt at recolonization
They are surely right to wonder what kind of new government we plan to help form without them 
... this lack of confidence in Western words, and especially their distrust of American intentions now".

President Barack Obama:
"as we meet here, we again declare that the regime of Bashar al-Assad must come to an end so that the suffering of the Syrian people can stop, and a new dawn can begin." *
* [Not only in the foreign press and Internet, but in mainstream press CIA and Mossad involvement in heavily arming and assisting attacks on the government is openly reported.][1][2]
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Martin Luther King Jr.:
"Here is the true meaning and value of compassion and nonviolence, when it helps us to see the enemy's point of view, to hear his questions, to know his assessment of ourselves. For from his view we may indeed see the basic weaknesses of our own condition, and if we are mature, we may learn and grow and profit from the wisdom of the brothers who are called the opposition."
Their questions are frighteningly relevant. Is our nation planning to build on political myth again, and then shore it up upon the power of new violence?
Now there is little left to build on, save bitterness. Soon, the only solid -- solid physical foundations remaining will be found at our military bases. "

President Barack Obama:
"I know there are some who ask why we don't just ban such a video. The answer is enshrined in our laws: our Constitution protects the right to practice free speech. "  
* [Laws in the US as elsewhere prosecute as a crime the cry of "fire" in a crowd, or any other action or words intended to provoke panic and harm or cause a riot - this video has has murder by beheading, stabbing and men putting their faces in between a woman's opened legs in the name of the Prophet among other slanderous statements against Allah. Compare this with when author was a child. Kissing on the mouth and four letter sex terms were not permitted in movies - under the same principle of freedom of speech.]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Martin Luther King Jr.:
"What we are submitting them to is not simply the brutalizing process that goes on in any war where armies face each other and seek to destroy. We are adding cynicism to the process of death, for they must know after a short period there that none of the things we claim to be fighting for are really involved."

President Barack Obama:
"The attacks on our civilians in Benghazi were attacks on America."
 [In his remarks on the day of Ambassador Stevens death, Obama emotionally praised the three of fallen ("civilian") staff for their combat roles in Iraq, though Obama had once described Iraq as a "dumb war" (More that a million Iraqis died for no reason ever given in that 'dumb war' never apologized for as was not the 'mistaken' war on Vietnam).]
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Martin Luther King Jr.:
"So they go, primarily women and children and the aged. They watch as we poison their water, as we kill a million acres of their crops. They must weep as the bulldozers roar through their areas preparing to destroy the precious trees. They wander into the hospitals with at least twenty casualties from American firepower for one inflicted injury. So far we may have killed a million of them, mostly children. They wander into the towns and see thousands of the children, homeless, without clothes, running in packs on the streets like animals. They see the children degraded by our soldiers as they beg for food. They see the children selling their sisters to our soldiers, soliciting for their mothers."

President Barack Obama:
"The war in Iraq is over, and our troops have come home. [All hailed as heroes, as all who fought in US Wars, in this case, heroes of the war Obama called "dumb."]
-- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

President Barack Obama:
"We have begun a transition in Afghanistan, and America and our allies will end our war on schedule in 2014." [Two years later? Is this meant to sound like something commendable? How many more are condemned to die for US investors for mineral deposits found and an oil pipeline?]
