What Monroe Doctrine?

By Phil Giraldi, April 4, 2019

Remind every Marine you know — especially those who may now be headed south: Gen. Smedley Butler was awarded TWO Medals of Honor, when he — like Mad-Dog Mattis — apparently found it fun “to shoot people.”  Then he (Butler, not Mattis) came to his senses and realized he was being used.  Here’s Butler:

I suspected I was just part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all members of the military profession I never had an original thought until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of the higher- ups. This is typical with everyone in the military service.”
