5.0 out of 5 stars A racket indeed!, 10 April 2012
This review is from: War is a Racket: The Antiwar Classic by America's Most Decorated General (Paperback)
As is it was in the past, so it is today. I read this while in the military and it has made a lasting impression with the ultimate decision after not being able to stomach all the lies about the Iraq war (as well as reading about the lies and distortion that led the US into almost all other wars) and the government complicity and cover-up of 9/11 to leave the military. You see advertisements and people claiming that serving is a noble cause and that making the `ultimate sacrifice' by being killed in the line of duty should be respected. Military members serve the lie and serve not to preserve and to spread democracy, but to enrich the few and allow them to a level of control that should sicken any person with a conscience. I wish I had read this before going into the military, because then I would not have put my energy toward the criminal and inhumane enterprise that needs to be dismantled. The Military-Defense-Industrial complex that Eisenhower named and that fully took over with the murder of JFK at their hands has become a driving force toward war. Remember this as they get ready to attack Iran.

Why not give every member of government a pair of boots and a rifle, and let's see how far we prosper?
