Would he impose sanctions to make the Iranian people, not their leaders, suffer?
Would he impose sanctions which are tantamount to a declaration of war?
Would he authorize the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientists and the bombing of Iranian nuclear facilities?
Would he launch an attack on the nation of Iran which would kill hundreds of thousands of people, unleash deadly radiation, and provoke retaliation which will cause millions of deaths worldwide?
Or would he never give up efforts at peaceful diplomacy with Iran?
A year before his assassination, Dr. King warned us:
“A true revolution of values will lay hands on the world order and say of war: ‘This way of settling differences is not just.’ This business of burning human beings with napalm, of filling our nation’s homes with orphans and widows, of injecting poisonous drugs of hate into veins of people normally humane, of sending men home from dark and bloody battlefields physically handicapped and psychologically deranged, cannot be reconciled with wisdom, justice and love.”
The United States must honor Dr. King by acting as he would have.
