MLK, 1967:

"Let me say finally that I oppose the war in Vietnam because I love America. I speak out against this war, not in anger, but with anxiety and sorrow in my heart, and, above all, with a passionate desire to see our beloved country stand as the moral example of the world. I speak out against this war because I am disappointed with America. And there can be no great disappointment where there is not great love."

At 6:00 this morning I talked a little about the journey I'm going through of recognizing the difference between the military and war (another way to put it, national defense and national offense).

I'm starting to apply the same economic principles we talk about every day to foreign policy. We are supposed to judge economic policy not by the intent, but by the result. I think we need to do the same for our foreign policy as well.

Then at 7:00, we talked about economic sanctions, and how they usually lead to war:

There is obviously a lot going on here. If you're interested in learning more, this is the finest source I've found on the original foreign policy principles of the modern conservative movement.
