Quotes of the day... 7/14/16

“WAR is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.”  ~ Smedley D. Butler, War is a Racket: The Antiwar Classic by America's Most Decorated Soldier

“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.”  ~ Smedley D. Butler, War is a Racket: The Antiwar Classic by America's Most Decorated Soldier
