General Butlers long quote. - General Smedley Butler

This quote was added by seanearlyaug
I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class thug for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914... I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints.
