War is just a racket... I believe in adequate defense at the coastline and nothing else.
There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights.
War like any other racket, pays high dividends to the very few. The cost of operations is always transferred to the people who do not profit.
My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of the higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military.
War is a racket. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.
