I'm bringing this to your attention for the same reason MLK did, to point out these documented horrors that war itself can cause, and be an advocate for peace.
"As I moved to break the betrayal of my own silences and to speak from the burnings of my own heart-as I called for radical departures from the destruction of Vietnam-many persons questioned me about the wisdom of my path. At the heart of their concerns, this query has often loomed large and loud: 'Why are you speaking about the war, Dr. King? Why are you joining the voices of dissent?' 'Peace and civil rights don't mix,' they say. And when I hear them, though I often understand the source of their concern, I nevertheless am greatly saddened that such questions mean that the inquirers have not really known me, my commitments, or my calling. They seem to forget that before I was a civil rights leader, I answered a call, and when GOD speaks, who can but prophesy. I answered a call which left the spirit of the Lord upon me and anointed me to preach the gospel. And during the early days of my ministry, I read the Apostle Paul saying, 'Be ye not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of minds.' I decided then that I was going to tell the truth as GOD revealed it to me. No matter how many people disagreed with me, I decided that I was going to tell the truth."
