"We have no honorable intentions in Vietnam. Our minimal expectation is to 
occupy it as an American colony and maintain social stability for our 
investments. This tells why American helicopters are being used against 
guerrillas in Colombia and Peru. Increasingly the role our nation has taken 
is the role of those who refuse to give up the privileges and pleasures that 
come from the immense profits of overseas investment."

— Martin Luther King, Jr.
"A Time to Break the Silence"
speech given at Riverside Church
New York City
April 4, 1967
