With a new administration in Washington it will be a challenge to get the 'liberals' to hold Biden-Harris to the few 'progressive promises' they made during their campaign. Biden is bringing back many of Bush & Obama's neo-cons to head his foreign policy. I'll be on this case without hesitation.

Marine Maj. Gen. Smedley Butler's book against war



LibriVox recording of War Is a Racket by Smedley Butler.

Read in English by John Greenman (Orland, Maine)

Marine Maj. Gen. Smedley Butler's expose of American Corporate Imperialism.

Butler said, “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 for capitalism. I suspected I was just part of the racket all the time. Now I am sure of it.”
