Obama, Luther King e a guerra

      "This is a war that we have to win," Obama said in remarks prepared for delivery at the International Trade Center in Washington.

[Referindo-se à guerra no Afeganistão]

In Obama: We Have To Win Afghanistan War                                                            

«Sometimes we have to send our young men and women into war and other dangerous situations to protect our country-but when we do, I want to make sure that it is only for a very good reason, that we try our best to settle our differences with others peacefully, and that we do everything possible to keep our servicemen and women safe. And I want every child to understand that the blessings these brave Americans fight for are not free-that with the great privilege of being a citizen of this nation comes great responsibility.»

In Barack Obama's letter to his daughters                                                                 

«In the course of our history, only a handful of generations have been asked to confront challenges as serious as the ones we face right now. Our nation is at war. Our economy is in crisis. Millions of Americans are losing their jobs and their homes; they're worried about how they'll afford college for their kids or pay the stack of bills on their kitchen table. And most of all, they are anxious and uncertain about the future - about whether this generation of Americans will be able to pass on what's best about this country to our children and their children

In Barack Obama's Lincoln Memorial speech

    [Martin Luther King referindo-se à guerra no Vietnam]  

Even when pressed by the demands of inner truth, men do not easily assume the task of opposing their government's policy, especially in time of war.

(…) and I knew that I could never again raise my voice against the violence of the oppressed in the ghettos without having first spoken clearly to the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today -- my own government.

...

What do they think as we test out our latest weapons on them, just as the Germans tested out new medicine and new tortures in the concentration camps of Europe?

… 

(...) we are met by a deep but understandable mistrust. To speak for them is to explain this lack of confidence in Western words, and especially their distrust of American intentions now.

"This way of settling differences is not just."

A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.

Somehow this madness must cease. We must stop now.

...

I speak as one who loves America, to the leaders of our own nation: The great initiative in this war is ours; the initiative to stop it must be ours.
...
