War is a Racket

Smedly Butler knew it then and I know it now. War is nothing but a racket. The soldiers might as well have sponsor logos sewn into there uniforms. Exxon patch on one shoulder, G.E, patch on the other shoulder, Shell oil, Haliburton, NBC, CBS, ABC down the front.

You should read Smedly's book, it can be had for a little bit of nothing at your local book store or on amazon. I have it if anyone wants to borrow it.

To Hell with War, JOEY

in case you never knew, Butler is quoted on many of the walls on Paris Island, SC. I can remember being told of his heroics all through boot camp back in 1993. Fuckin badass!! And well, if he saw the light, why can't we.

Keep it up Joey, I like the all in one review I can get from reading your blog one a month. I think you are on the right track.
