Agreed. And/or using our military as muscle for
corporations that offshore jobs and evade taxes
in the US.
"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. In short, I was a
racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make
Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American
oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba
a decent place for the National City Bank boys to
collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a
dozen Central American republics for the benefit of
Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the
International Banking House of Brown Brothers in
1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic
for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped
make Honduras right for the American fruit
companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see
to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested.
Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone
a few hints. The best he could do was to operate
his racket in three districts. I operated on three
continents." -U.S. Marine Corps Major General
