Smedley Butler: War Is Just A Racket

Interesting 1933 speech about war by Major General Smedley Butler, USMC.  Excerpt:

“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.”

Thanks, Christine.
