    If you genuinely want to stop wars you need to understand what starts them. When other countries start wars we attribute it to “madmen” or “dictators”. When we start wars and overthrow governments we are defending ourselves and “our interests”. Our leaders are not madmen, but quite rational – which they are. War is a calculated undertaking, “diplomacy by other means.” It is always fought with interests and objectives in mind. 
    U.S. Marine Corps Major General Smedley Butler, winner of two congressional medals of honor, speaks about war. He was not a leftist or an anti-American propagandist.
