AMAZING SPEECH BY a US WAR VETERAN

"Our real enemy is not the ones living in a distant land whose names or policies we don't understand; The real enemy is a system that wages war when it's profitable, the CEOs who lay us off our jobs when it's profitable, the Insurance Companies who deny us Health care when it's profitable, the Banks who take away our homes when it's profitable. Our enemies are not several hundred thousands away. They are right here in front of us"
- Mike Prysner

"The chain reaction of evil... wars producing more wars... must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation" - Martin Luther King, Jr.

"If tyranny and oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy... The loss of Liberty at home is to be charged to the provisions against danger, real or imagined, from abroad..."
- James Madison

Major General Smedley Butler - 1935 :" WAR is a racket. It always has been.
It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. .. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.
A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small "inside" group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many."
