General Smedley Butler’s frank book shows how American war efforts were animated by big-business interests. This extraordinary argument against war by an unexpected proponent is relevant now more than ever.

Famous booklet by the ex high ranking Marine.

WAR is a racket. It always has been.

It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. 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.

A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small "inside" group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.


A couple of months ago, I commented about this and messaged you. You did not reply but stopped doing it. Now you have started again. I'm sure I'm not the only one who just wants the title without roflcopter2110 [WWRG] added to everything. It's a pain to remove it. First, I remove it from the folder title and remove the files you keep adding that I do not want. Then, when I've downloaded it, I remove roflcopter2110 [WWRG] from each individual file onside the folder. Because the file name is now different, it means I am not now seeding. I always keep my files seeding forever, but you stop that when you add roflcopter2110 [WWRG].

Why can't you copy Ryba777? He has a good single title for each upload, not the two you have, and he does not have superfluous junk, so it's simple to download, and I can seed that forever.

I am grateful for you uploading, but why do you add roflcopter2110 [WWRG] to every folder and file? Because you want people to say: "There's another one, but it's roflcopter2110, what a pain. I think I'll pass"?

... and he did. Now that he's started again I'll just force him to comply via software. Sad that it's come to this.

I was wondering just a bit if I was being unreasonable. So it's good knowing I'm not alone.
