War is a racket

HIS HOLINESS, THE DALAI LAMA

dalai lama war monstrous

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.
-Gen. Smedley Butler, War is a Racket, 1935
