The War Racket

  • "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 muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers," said the most decorated American marine up to that point in 1935, quoted here by Charles Glass — War: Still a Racket.

  • "The military-industrial complex is nothing new; here is the famed antiwar documentary from 1935," says Daniel Nichols, with the film — Masters of War —and also posting the trailer of a new movie by "director Terry Malick [whose] film The Thin Red Line is one of the best antiwar movies ever" — The Tree of Life.
