Anti-war speech by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at the Whitehouse in 1964This is just as applicable today as it was in 1967. All you need to do is swap out the word Iraq with Vietnam, and Iraqi with Vietnamese. It’s frequently said that those who forget the past, are doomed to repeat it. This is something I think is absolutely on target. We forgot…
