"We have corrupted their women and children and killed their men - children, homeless, without clothes, running in packs on the streets like animals... children degraded by our soldiers as they beg for food, children selling their sisters to our soldiers, soliciting for their mothers. We have destroyed their land and their crops. we poison their water as we kill a million acres of their crops. as the bulldozers roar through their areas preparing to destroy the precious trees... they languish under our bombs and consider us, not their fellow Vietnamese, the real enemy. They move sadly and apathetically, primarily women and children and the aged, as we herd them off the land of their fathers into concentration camps where minimal social needs are rarely met. They know they must move on or be destroyed by our bombs."

They wander into the hospitals they languish under our bombs and consider us, not their fellow Vietnamese, the real enemy. They move sadly and apathetically as we herd them off the land of their fathers into concentration camps where minimal social needs are rarely met. So they go, primarily women and children and the aged. They know they must move on or be destroyed by our bombs..."we may have killed a million of them, mostly children."

MLK Honored As An Icon, But 48 Years Ago The Media Attacked Him By Prachi Gupta | January 19, 2015

http://animalnewyork.com/2015/mlk-honored-icon-48-years-ago-media-attacked/

The attack of the New York Times editors on King begins by lecturing King that his condemnation of US militarism is far too simplistic: "the moral issues in Vietnam are less clear cut than he suggests." It accuses him of "slandering" the US by comparing it to evil regimes. And it warns him that anti-war activism could destroy the civil rights movement, because he is guilty of overstating American culpability and downplaying those of its enemies:
