“War is a Racket”

This is a repost of an article I published at the same time last year.

Read and watch the following, and then see if you still want to go celebrate the mass murdering of millions for profit!

21st Century Wire says…

It’s Memorial Day weekend in the U.S.A. and there’s another important part of history, dare we say Forbidden, that will not be televised. Lest we forget…

Retired Major General Smedley Butler was onto something in 1933, when he was recruited to be a “gangster for capitalism” by a group of wealthy Americans calling themselves the “American Liberty League”. Damn interesting, indeed.

If you know your history, you know that in 1934 there was an attempted coup in the United States that was thwarted largely due to the efforts of U.S. Marine Corps Major General Smedley Butler(ret.)

Look it up.

Among other things, Butler was only one of 19 people ever awarded the Medal of Honor twice and the only person to be awarded a Marine Corps Brevet Medal and a Medal of Honor for two different actions.

After it dawned on him how his heroism and the heroism of the troops under his command had been misused, he wrote a book called “War is a Racket” which I can virtually guarantee you never heard about in school.

Butler concluded there are only two reasons to ever take up arms:

1. To defend the country against real – not manufactured – attacks
2. To defend the Bill of Rights

Sounds good to us. (emphasis added)

To hell with Memorial Day! Let’s stop glorifying war and warriors, and start speaking out against the elite creatures who create wars for their own evil ends!

“All wars are bankers’ wars!”

  1. Thanks! This man was amazing. There is no one, in my generation or older, who can argue with what this man has stated. Not one!

    He was the ultimate whistle blower and speaker of the truth! I just wish we had men like him, today, who would speak up as well!

  2. I was reading an article today that said Obama has been purging the military recently, removing over 200 high-ranking officers. I guess he doesn’t want any soldiers with consciences getting in the way of the next coup attempt

  3. Maybe Neo-Nero has gotten wind of some dissension in the high ranks? There must be some of these high ranking officers who, like this man, see what is happening and are willing to make their voices heard? Or at least I hope so!

  4. The good not only die young here, they and what they know and believe are also covered up before they die, or are assassinated.

    The treachery never ends here.
