Why do you think king chooses to use "crippled" rather than "held back" or "hurt"? How does the use of the word intensify the point he is making in this sentence

Speech on the vietnam war, 1967 lines 34-37

I think that crippled highlights the lasting damage that the war inflicts on soldiers and civilians involved.

Reread line 87-88 and explain the effect of King mentioning his Nobel Prize.
