Smedley Butler, Major General, Ret. USMC: In 1933 after his retirement, he gave this speech describing his experience in the U.S. Marine Corps following government orders on three continents. "I suspected I was just part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all the members of the military profession, I never had a thought of my own until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military service." Only when we put humanity and the whole world before individuals and nations will wars come to an end.
