CHAPTER TWO War Is A Racket, by U.S. Major General, Smedley Darlington Butler (July 30, 1881 – June 21, 1940) The World War, rather our brief participation in it, has cost the United States some $52,000,000,000.

But there is a way to stop it. You can’t end it by disarmament conferences. You can’t eliminate it by peace parleys at Geneva. Well-meaning but impractical...

To Hell With War! CHAPTER FIVE War Is A Racket, by U.S. Major General, Smedley Darlington Butler (July 30, 1881 – June 21, 1940) I am not a fool as to believe that war is a thing of the past. I know the people do not want war, but there is no use in saying we cannot be pushed into another...
