BPR Quote of the Day: “War Is a Racket”

“I wouldn’t go to war again as I have done to protect some lousy investment of the bankers. There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket.”

Major General Smedley Butler

 

Butler, 1861-1940, a highly decorated Marine, wrote War is a Racket.
