MLK Jr—"Kill 'em all!"
You know, if there's one thing Martin Luther King Jr. would have appreciated, it's America's stockpile of high tech weaponry.
This is how the U.S. Air Force Global Strike Command seems to have interpreted the work of Dr. King, anyway.
While President Drone-Strike was busy wiping his bloodstained hands on King's bible during his inauguration, the AFGSC saw fit to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day with a statement on its website.
"Dr. King would be proud," it read, "to see our Global Strike team—comprised of Airmen, civilians and contractors from every race, creed, background and religion—standing side-by-side ensuring the most powerful weapons in the U.S. arsenal remain the credible bedrock of our national defense."
In the last year of his life, King famously described his country as "the greatest purveyor of violence in the world."
You can see how the Air Force might be a little confused by the sentiment.
