On the Eve of a Great War It is time to revolt and wage revolution

In 'War is a Racket' (1933)* Major General Smedley D. Butler
USMC (Ret) spoke of the significant results of World War I
in the United States. As he put it 'At least 21,000 new
millionaires and billionaires were made in the United States
during the World War.' 21,000 new millionaires and billionaire;
that's astounding!

What his research demonstrated was durings wars 'a few people
make huge fortunes.' War is an extremely profitable business.
That is the organized mass murder that occurs every so often is
to some 'a business.' Who are the millionaires and billionaires
that General Butler talked of?

'Take our friends the du Ponts, the powder people – didn't one of
them testify before a Senate committee recently that their powder
won the war? Or saved the world for democracy? Or something? How
did they do in the war? They were a patriotic corporation.' On average,
the du Ponts made $6,000,000 yearly in profits between '1910 to 1914.'
Smedley Butler, in that sharp sarcasm of his said 'It wasn't much, but
the du Ponts managed to get along on it.'

The good general then noted that during the course of the war (1914-1918)
the du Ponts made an 'average yearly profit' of 'Fifty-eight million dollars.'
Not bad. It was an increase of 'ten times that of normal times...An increase
in profits of more than 950%!!

War IS a Racket. War is good business for some.

Bethlehem Steel also had a yearly profit of $6,000,000 before the war.
General Butler notes that the company 'promptly turned to munitions
making'and made an average yearly profit of $49,000,000 between 1914-1918.

Then, there's Nickel, 'you can't have a war without nickel.' Between 1914-
1918 International Nickel Company went from an average yearly profit of
$4,000,000 'to $73,000,000' over the four years of war.

And then there are 'the bankers who financed the great war. If anyone had
the cream of the profits it was the bankers. Being partnerships rather than
incorporated organizations, they do not have to report to stockholders.
And their profits were as secret as they were immense. How the bankers
made their millions and their billions I do not know, because those little
secrets never become public – even before a Senate investigatory body.

War IS a Racket. War is good business for some. War is a business funded by
the Banksters, or more properly Gangsters!

Vladimir Lenin stated that the reason why America entered the World War I
was to give 'The American excuse, behind a smoke-screen
of lofty ideals championing the rights of small nations, for building up a
strong standing army.' His reasoning was that since the end of the Civil War
multimillionaires have mushroomed. They have the whole of America in their
financial grip.

Lenin said that the American capitalists were headed for a future 'war
with Japan over a carve-up of the Pacific'(he said this in 1917), and
that their 'real aim in entering the war '(World War I)is to prepare for
this future war with Japan.'**

Today, the American Capitalists are preparing for another Great
that they think will give them complete control over the entire planet.
The missile shields being put up in Europe aren't to protect Europe, but
to give the US an early shot at shooting down Russian missiles after the
US launches the war. If some of these missiles fall on Europe it's of no
consequence to the Banksters and capitalists (read Gangsters).

And they also plan to attack China. One aim of the war in Libya is to
drive the Chinese from Libya and also Africa. The uprisings going on
in Syria are also partly formented by the CIA, and Israel too. The aim of
the US is to drive the Russian navy out of the Mediterranean Sea. At
present Russia has a naval base in Syria.

The US military sees control of the Mediterranean and Suez as vital.
But in this war for all the money and fleets that the US has it's naval
forces will be toast in the opening round of this great war-a Holocaust
on humanity.

Lenin speaks of Imperialst wars as wars between two sets of robbers. The
governments of the warring nations scheme to show that it was the other
party who forced war upon them so that war is presented as it was on 9/11,
and before that after the attack on Pearl Harbor, but all the main powers
are preparing fror the war.

As for who shot first among the thieves Lenin said this 'Obviously, the
question of which of these two robbers was the first to draw the knife
is of small account to us.' And, that is how we the people must see it.

But, there is a lesson to be learned from World War I, and that is this:
the robbing class causes great harm to its own and other peoples in the
course of the robbery that they plan to perpetuate. War is for the expansion
of their criminal empires. What we must do is to wage a revolutionary
struggle against their attempts to drag us into war.

If it is blocking naval bases with masses of people, and calling to the
sailors to 'join us', to disabling planes or any, any weapons of war.we
must, we have the duty, the right and the obligation to make it difficult
for our own capatalists to have secure areas. and we must try to capture
the principal ones, the military chiefs and their political whores.

We must render them to our own hidden detention centres to await trial,
and when we do, we must treat them with full respect for their human
dignity and person. It is time to revolt and wage revolution.
