Major General Smedley Butler The Greatest Marine of them all:



Quote:
By the end of his career, Butler had received 16*medals, five for heroism. He is one of 19 men to receive the Medal of Honor twice, one of three to be awarded both the Marine Corps Brevet Medal and the Medal of Honor, and the only Marine to be awarded the Brevet Medal and two Medals of Honor, all for separate actions.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smedley_Butler

Quote:
In 1933, he became involved in a controversy known as the Business Plot, when he told a congressional committee that a group of wealthy industrialists were planning a military coup to overthrow Franklin D. Roosevelt, with Butler selected to lead a march of veterans to become dictator, similar to other Fascist regimes at that time. The individuals involved all denied the existence of a plot and the media ridiculed the allegations. A final report by a special House of Representatives Committee confirmed some of Butler's testimony
Quote:
In 1935, Butler wrote a book titled War Is a Racket, where he described and criticized the workings of the United States in its foreign actions and wars, such as those he was a part of, including the American corporations and other imperialist motivations behind them. After retiring from service, he became a popular activist, speaking at meetings organized by veterans, pacifists, and church groups in the 1930s.

You can search utoob for his actual vids, I found this narrator pretension and stuffy but at least it's only 8 minutes.

cliffs:
Most honoured/decorated Marine says war is a racket "conducted for the few at the expense of the very many."

But today's MIC is different.
MIC benefit you.
War is good cause brownskins be as irrational as you!

Once cukd, twice cukd, thrice cukd, ... 18th time cukd - you be a cuk.
America - a nation of the cuk.

What do you call a group of cuks?

Dan Daly, Chesty Puller, and Smedly Butler. The trifecta of Martine Corps badassery.
Chesty is the most decorated but Daly had 2 MOHs and a Navy Cross.
Not sure how you weight those

Shacks of the Bonus Army who wanted to get paid bonuses for fighting in WWI. Congress didn't want to pay said didn't have to pay for another (up to) 15 years (lmao)


Smedley mediates, but Federale sends US Army in to clean the Vets out, burn em out send them home without a goddam nickle.


Not that the US Vets of WWI did fuk all, what with only fighting the last 5 months of the entire war.
Still it would of been nice to pay them a few bucks.

Could you imagine the Federales physically removing protesting Vet's in today's environment?
