War Is A Racket

quote-war-is-a-racket-it-always-has-been-it-is-possibly-the-oldest-easily-the-most-profitable-surely-smedley-butler-215696“War is a racket” – What kind of lefty-pinko radical would say such a thing?

Well actually this person said it…

Smedley Butler was “at the time of his death the most decorated Marine in U.S. history”.

This link is an audio version of something he wrote in 1935. The text version is here.

It is fairly dry for the first part as he explains who made money and how much they made in the first world war. I’d advise you to stick with it however, as when he gets off the statistics and opens up it really becomes something of great import.
