"For a great many years, as a soldier, I had a
suspicion that war was a racket; not until I retired to civil life did I
fully realize it...."
"There isn't a trick in the racketeering bag
that the military gang is blind to. It has its "finger men" to point out
enemies, its "muscle men" to destroy enemies, its "brain men" to plan war
preparations, and a "Big Boss" Super-Nationalistic-Capitalism."
"It may seem odd for me, a military man to
adopt such a comparison. Truthfulness compels me to. I spent thirty three
years and four months in active military service as a member of this
country's most agile military force, the Marine Corps. I served in all
commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General. And during that
period, I spent most of my time being a high class muscle-man for Big
Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers."
