War is a Racket

Excerpts from the book by Maj. General Smedley Butler USMC, quite possibly one of the most honourable men to have walked the planet! If we had more people like him in positions of power I think the world would be a much nicer place. War is as much (if not more) of a racket as it was when this was penned almost 90 years ago. The world is still being shagged up the arse by the same rich greedy inhuman monsters as it was then. If it had not been for Maj. Gen. Butler this world would look a lot different. He foiled an attempt by capitalist (fascist) scum-fucks to install a simillar government in the USA as was in operation in Germany. In fact if you look carefully at history it was the same damn bunch of capitalist (fascist) scum-fucks. Those bastards want control of this world and everyone in it, make no mistake about it. If people like Rupert Murdoch could get away with sticking a chip in your arm and having a computer or security guard monitor you 24x7x365 then they would do it!

War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.

I believe in adequate defense at the coastline and nothing else. If a nation comes over here to fight, then we'll fight. The trouble with America is that when the dollar only earns 6 percent over here, then it gets restless and goes overseas to get 100 percent. Then the flag follows the dollar and the soldiers follow the flag.

I wouldn't go to war again as I have done to protect some lousy investment of the bankers. There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket.

There isn't a trick in the racketeering bag that the military gang is blind to. It has its "finger men" to point out enemies, its "muscle men" to destroy enemies, its "brain men" to plan war preparations, and a "Big Boss" Super-Nationalistic-Capitalism.

It may seem odd for me, a military man to adopt such a comparison. Truthfulness compels me to. I spent thirty- three years and four months in active military service as a member of this country's most agile military force, the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General. And during that period, I spent most of my time being a high class muscle- man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.

I suspected I was just part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all the members of the military profession, I never had a thought of my own until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military service.

I helped make Mexico, especially Tampico, safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefits of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested.

During those years, I had, as the boys in the back room would say, a swell racket. Looking back on it, I feel that I could have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents

Dear Sir: I believe that the same people who were involved in the attempted murder of FDR was America's elite, the wealthy, who where back by the big money of JP Morgan and the Europeans bankers: Bank Of England coup' de ta' of FDR, are the same people who murdered JFK, Robert Kennedy, and MLK! Our intelligence agencies like NSA, CIA, Military Intelligence organization have been recruited by the wealthy who were in control of our National Security apparatus. NSA, CIA, and the military have grandfather son and grandson on the National Security organization which is a felony. Prescott Bush was US Army intelligence, OSS, and a recruiter for the CIA for Yale and the Yale's Skull an Bones. President GHW Bush SR. was a military Second LT recon officer while being an OSS officers. While at Yale he became a CIA officers. President Bush GW Bush is an officer plus a covert CIA officer which no one ask him! It is treason for a covert CIA officer to be an elected to federal officer or sit on federal bench without full disclosure! Jeb Bush is a CIA officer like his father who is still covert while he ran for the governorships which has a large CIA community.
