To make it easier readable, here are the words of Smedley Butler:

war-is-a-racket

butler-on-war

Smedley_Butler was a highly decorated US Marine Corps General whom US Capitalists tried to misuse for the attempted „Business_Plot“ which Butler revealed to the public:

This might have added to his will to confess what he had been used for throughout his military career and give a sound warning to mankind in his speeches which were transformed into the famous book „War_Is_a_Racket“ in 1934.

It´s important to read these great and enlightening lines, but for people with eye problems Butler´s words are performed by Graham Frye:

And here are the written words of Butler: https://archive.org/stream/WarIsARacket/WarIsARacket_djvu.txt

Unfortunately the writing in this link isn´t so well readable, therefore I transfered the text into this PDF file, since the text is obviously too long for WordPress, which is just crippling the text. But at present WordPress is always misplacing the pdf file. I hope it will work properly soon!

We should take the words of this man very serious! And especially US-Americans should! Not only on this day!

Remark:

It might not be absurd to speculate that this book representing Butler´s mutation from a „Man of War“ to a „Man of Peace“ might have inspired Charlie_Chaplin for his great speech as the Barber and double of Fascist Dictator Hynkel in his film „The_Great_Dictator“:

Anyway, the clearness of Butlers words should make it clear to us that wars are a CONSPIRACY in favor of the rich and powerful, the Power Elite!

The nowadays Neocon dominated Democratic Party is still successful in making African Americans believe they´d be on their side, binding Black polititians to them. „Black Agenda Report“ puts things in line!

seasons-greetings-2016

Don´t let us forget the victims of war, exploitation, Racism, deseases and Terror (staged and authentic), altogether of Imperialism! – Lasst uns nicht die Opfer von Krieg, Ausbeutung, Rassismus, Krankheit und Terror (inszeniertem wie „authentischem“), also insgesamt des Imperialismus´, vergessen!

shock

In Western countries this is the time of holidays and good wishes. It is the time of middle class luxuries and excessive spending for presents many times more than one can afford. Not to be misunderstood, also in the West more and more people don´t know how to make “ends meet”, but true hell is in the Southern Hemisphere! OK, in the richest country on Earth, the US, and with its “small brother”, the UK, there are extended “pockets” of poverty and hopelessness. But if you want to see hell, turn the view on Congo (1), on West Papua – the western part of New Guinea, occupied by Indonesia (2), on many other Sub Saharan African countries additionally to Congo (3), on the Occupied territories of the Palestinians (4), turn an eye on Libya (5) and on Syria (6)! But don´t forget, the “South” is creeping upwards, as you can see in Greece (7) and more and more in Spain (8).

“Green Zones” and “Red Zones”

Instead of harvesting the “peace dividend” announced after the end of the “Cold War” and promised in UN´s aims for the “Millenium” you see wars, poverty and hopelessness spreading, whereas profits are exploding. The profits again are nourishing “bubbles” which every now and then exploding don´t kill the rich but the poor and the middle class! High times for arms traders and companies busy in the “Security Sector”. Disasters are not getting societies closer together but are playing grounds for more profits, just as so well described in Naomi Klein´s brilliant book “The Shock Doctrine” (http://www.naomiklein.org/shock-doctrine). Globally there is more and more division between the places where “you can live” and where you can only survive (if you´re lucky). And in many countries this principle is continued.

Masters of Disasters

But who is responsible for most of the mass tragedies to be found in this “Modern World”? Who bombs “for Democracy”, who´s sponsoring and creating “Terrorists” to be used as alibi for more bombings, who understands “National Security” as the sole right to be almighty over all other nations? They are to be found in the sole “Empire” left, in the US! It´s not even the president of that country, it´s the country´s Power Elite, deciding behind the curtain, at times even at war among themselves (9), but doing all without the slightest democratic legitimation. To be clear, there are also dictators independent from the West, who are anything else but respectable, but the decision who´s publicly ousted to be a “second Hitler” is always directed by those in the US who are playing with luck, health, fate and life of many, many millions of people. And they have one principle:

killing-hope

They have with their Western (and at times Southern) henchmen turned Decolonization into deprivation, they have turned Democratization into dictatorship of Capital, they have turned emancipation into more sexual exploitation. Whatever they touch with their hands doesn´t become gold but pure shit which they get paid for as if it would be gold! And whenever there is the slightest attempt to let a bit more freedom grow they will trample it under ground, just killing hope (http://killinghope.org/)!

But to the Westerners it must be said: true hell being on the Southern Hemisphere now should not befuddle you! It shows the picture of what is in preparation for the majority of you Westerners as well! Politicians are to the Power Elite their monkeys, experts are their cattle, highly skilled people are their rabbits, the majority of mankind is their vegetable and the “surplus people” whom they cannot utilize are their weeds. You better understand in time!

So to all individuals I wish a Healthy and Happy New Year, but in general my wish is:

new-year

To honor Motherhood means to fight war and exploitation. No Mother has born her child

to be killed or exploited!

 

Mutterschaft zu ehren bedeutet, gegen Krieg und Ausbeutung zu kämpfen,

keine Mutter hat ihr Kind geboren, damit es getötet oder ausgebeutet wird!
