Honest humanity: U.S. Major General Smedley Darlington Butler 11 Months, 3 Weeks ago  
True Veteran, U.S. Major General Smedley Butler, from his 1935 anti establishment brave autobiography, "War Is A Racket".

"I coulda given Al Capone a few hints. He only operated in 3-districts, I operated on three continents.

I spent 33 years and 4 months in active military service . . . And during that period I spent most of my time as a high-class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers.

In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. Thus, I helped make Mexico and 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 benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1902–1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927, I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Our boys were sent off to die with beautiful ideals
painted in front of them. No one told them that dollars and cents were the real reason they were marching off to kill and die.

Ultimately we must educate our young out of the 'Sucker Class'.”
