War is a racket. It always has been. It is perhaps the oldest, simply the most profitable, absolutely the most vicious. It is the only a person global in scope. It is the only a single in which the profits are reckoned in bucks and the losses in life. A racket is best described, I believe that, as a thing that is not what it looks to the the vast majority of the people. Only a small ‘inside’ group appreciates what it is about. It is conducted for the reward of the incredibly handful of, at the cost of the quite quite a few. Out of war a couple persons make big fortunes.”

Butler confesses that during his a long time of support in the United States Maritime Corps:

I aided in the raping of 50 percent a dozen Central American republics for the rewards of Wall Road. The document of racketeering is prolonged. I aided purify Nicaragua for the intercontinental banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912 (in which have I heard that name right before?). I introduced light-weight to the Dominican Republic for American sugar passions in 1916. In China I helped see to it that Typical Oil went its way unmolested.”
