MLKApril31968“Bitterness is often greater toward that person who built up hope, who could say, ‘I have a dream,’ but couldn’t produce the dream because of the failure and sickness of the nation to respond to the dream.” Martin Luther King Jr. 1968 in America (Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 1988)

On the 50th Anniversary of King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, one wonders how Martin Luther King would counsel the world to deal with the sickness of American foreign policy — that has only increased during Obama’s time in the White House, producing misery and death for millions of people from Libya to Egypt and Syria , and corroding the souls of Americans.

That U.S. government officials would be considering military intervention — allied with the vermin seeking to overthrow the leadership of the sovereign state of Syria, is just one more sign that the ‘democracy’ experiment in the United States has failed.

Rather than being a responsible actor on the world stage, the U.S. has become a predator — many times worse than Hitler’s Wehrmacht in 1939.
