Simulcast: Those Who Can't Bring Themselves To Demand That Political Sovereignty Be Respected Will One Day Understand The Costs Of Their Complicity At The Time When Their Own Sovereignty Is Violated And Other People From Afar Are Silent Then As They Presently Are

This is the first ever simulcast across my key blog properties.
Since each of my blogs are compartmentalized to focus on various subjects that are related by essentially distinct - the news that the Obama Administration proving approval for expanded use of Drones in the sovereign nation of Yemen provides a great opportunity to view this latest act by the "American Military Imperialist Machine" - NOT from the perspective of the Obama Administration, but instead to look into the audience who is "living vicariously through Obama" to make note of their reaction.

To the drone they are merely GPS coordinates


Dr Martin Luther King Jr never could have imagined the complexities and the compromise that would come in the future as some people's "Martin Luther King / Jackie Robinson" figure which they live vicariously through is also the "Commander In Chief Of The US Allied Imperialist Military Machine.   When this venerated figure reaches a point in which his actions are mutual exclusive to these two roles defined above - we should note that it is the US Military that is not the one that is likely to compromise its integrity for want of allowing the "King / Jackie Robinson" model to stand untarnished.

Dr King leveraged the power of the moral strength of his argument as a means of compelling a larger group of Americans that the nation must change its ways via the laws and policies that it enforces that respects race.  Consistency was his demand. 

In the end he was not able to remain silent and accept the potential benefit of favorable domestic policies from the federal government when this same government was doing things internationally that didn't sit right with his spirit.

Today  it seems that things have been flipped upon its head. 
Those who claim to follow in Dr King's footsteps are not about to allow their need to repudiate the American machine's international efforts that are in violation of due process and national sovereignty to compromise their quest for domestic "social justice" policies that the "Commander In Chief" has promised them when he puts on his other hat.
