KIDS BRAINWASHED TO HATE WHITE PEOPLE

DEW weapons used in Camp Fire 2018

DEW Weapons Woolsey and Camp firestorms

How many more of these pics do I have to post before you understand this is a military kill op

No fire anywhere near the line of cars, but they spontaneously combust anyways, killing their occupants instantly.

A couple of fast food places, 50 miles from the fire, spontaneously combust near a freeway...to keep up the fear for the drivers.
30 miles from the fire, hundreds of cars trying to leave spontaneously combust...no survivors. Death toll: unknown
Update: This is even worse! A Survivor of the Paradise Fire Explains how the FIRES were set all around the perimeter of this small town, so no one could get out!

Fast Forward to 13 minutes into the following video to hear Paradise Fire Victim (Note: Helicopters were hovering above the town the days before that attack):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZsFPjsNmKxUYouTube
Notes:
A month or two before the fire, something was dropped from the sky, (in summer time) that looked like snow and tiny worms. Some stuck to her sliding glass door, and it was so peculiar she took photos of it. (Was it a fire accelerant???)
A week or two before fire: Helicopters hovering over Paradise Town, doing circles like they were surveying the land.
3 Days before the Fire, PG&E Called and Emailed residents of Paradise warning them of a fire potential on Thursday and telling people to have their fire plans ready. Each day of the 3 days before the fire, PG&E called the residents, repeatedly with these warnings, as well as multiple emails of warnings of a fire on Thursday.
Thursday the day of the fire, she noticed smoke at 7am going on what appeared to be a ridge a couple of mountains ridges away. She thought she was safe, but as a precaution, she drove to town to fill her gas tank. The town was not on fire, and it did not appear threatened at all. When she got home, about 8am, she also filled her bathtubs and sinks with water and sprayed down her house and surrounding area with a garden hose as a precaution. At this time she started to see things falling from the sky that looked like black tar paper or something.
About 11am she received a phone call of a mandatory evacuation for everyone in Paradise.
Paradise is a canyon surrounded by mountains on all sides, with few exits. As she was exiting the town she said she noticed that at the top of the telephone poles, all the transformer boxes were on fire. Flames coming out of the transformer boxes on the top of the telephone poles. She thinks these must have been triggered remotely, because there weren’t any fires near the poles at this time. Just the top of each pole was on fire. She said it looked like DEWs were used to set fire all around the perimeter of Paradise, to prevent people from escaping the canyon. She saw isolated houses on fire, with nothing on fire near the house, no fires leading up to the burning house.
Here is a drone fly over one area. Note that the homes, brick fire places, etc are GONE to ashes, while the surrounding trees and landscaping are UNtouched. This is no ordinary FOREST Fire, when none of the trees burn:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fa023r7Tq0wYouTube
Also, the CA Gov't NAMED this fire "the camp fire", but there is zero evidence it was started by a camp fire......that is just the NAME given to the fire in the hopes of misleading the public which regard to how these fires were really started. Don't fall for it.
She said that Paradise is basically a retirement community with a lot of disabled and/or elderly people who live there. So it would have been difficult for many of them to move as quickly as she did.
She thinks THE DEATH TOLL WILL BE IN THE THOUSANDS, but this will not go public, because it would arouse suspicions, that this was no ordinary fire.
She concludes by saying that We The People are under direct attack! War has been declared on us, and our own gov't is the enemy.
(My sideline: remember that plane that crashed after BOTH wings fell off this fire fighting plane....that is evidence of sabotage to hinder efforts to stop these fires.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybYeJVh1cewYouTube
The fires last year, and earlier this year, fire fighters kept complaining that some dressed as fire fighters actually were going around and sabotaging fire equipment. So yes this is a coordinated series of attacks, on mostly Conservative Trump Supporting counties, by the gov't of CA.)
She goes on to say, that we are under attack and there is no one to help us. We are ordinary Patriotic Americans under senseless attacks by our own gov't.
=============================================
The Death Toll in Paradise CA is probably much higher, like 1000+ people.
You have to see this video. Look at all the cars that did not make it out of the fire, and NOTICE nothing on fire around the cars. Trees are fine. But cars are melted down, presumably with people in them trying to escape:
=========================================
Directed energy weapons starting fires in Cali? A video someone took makes it appear plausible.
It is hard to say how this evolved, but it really does look like the fires in California were started by directed energy weapons that used the metal in cars to interact with and get them burning, which then started forest fires. This is because there are simply too many cars that are totally melted and burned to a crisp in the same place where there are trees that are not that badly hurt. It looks like the cars themselves started the fires after being torched by something and whatever happened to the trees is whatever happened.
I have seen lots of fires on roads like this, with everything torched to a crisp on the sides of the roads, with ZERO burned cars. even though they had to drive through the fire zone. As long as you don't stop anywhere, it is not likely there will be a problem. It appears obvious that these cars were burned to a crisp while they were moving down the highway which is highly unlikely to happen naturally. On a road of the type in this video below, even if you do drive through a wild fire, there's little chance your car, which is substantially away from anything that is burning, will simply torch off before it can even roll away from it. There are no trees downed across the road (which would be doom, if you stop you'll obviously take a chance of getting burned) However, the road is instead perfectly clean, with relatively good condition trees on both sides in several areas where cars are torched to a crisp. NOT PLAUSIBLE.
Here is the video.

Warning, it is on Facebook but you can get it to play without an account. (just click "not right now").
Facebook has lost 65 percent of it's users to date for good reason. I explained what happened above quite well for those who don't want to hit Facebook.
I agree with the DEW crowd: The aftermath of the fires is not plausible. If it was a real scenario, trees would have burned through and fallen across the road. They did not. The road is very clean for "after an enormous fire", the burned out cars make it look like it was an alien attack on the cars that sparked a forest fire, not a forest fire burning cars.
You can thank the deep state/dems/communists/soros for the fires in California for sure, the way they just sprang up right as massive election fraud was being exposed during an election that will spell life or death for America is suspicious to say the least, ESPECIALLY since the main target was Paradise, which (was) one of California's strongest conservative areas. They wanted it killed without question. Very suspicious it happened, and it is SO BAD that I doubt the city will rebound, every last thing is destroyed and now it looks like a substantial portion of the population is dead also. Too many people who would bring the city back are dead.
My take on this is that even if it was not DEW's doing this (doubtful, it really looks like it was) but if it was not, it was done on purpose anyway by operatives on the ground. The election is the key to all of this, the suspicious timing is undeniable.
Paradise California: Over 600 likely dead I thought the death toll was awful low. The fire ripped through that town so fast people could not even get to their cars and start driving. Over 600 people are now confirmed missing and odds are they are dead. The entire town was burned. I would not be surprised at all if the death toll went over 1, 000. Paradise is probably not going to be rebuilt.

camp fire death toll

CAMP   FIRE


Confirmed dead:   84

Missing, presumed dead: 812

Newly Homeless: 43,000



A very lucky doggie
The ENTIRE CITY OF PARADISE GONE AT THE SAME INSTANT. Wiped out. Hiroshima style. Only one road out, and it was cut off in the first hour.
Woolsey fire from the water, just like last year.

Yeah...we get it...you want to kill us all. Burning us out of our homes is so WW2 bombing style...it's already been done.
Woolsey fire hills about Ventura and LA counties. We really like the part where you burn down our forests too. It's that extra touch of evil we've learned to expect from Satanic thinking minded souls.

So many have nothing...nothing and nowhere to go.
From the beach in Ventura

Many never had a chance...
Like last year, hitting both ends of the state at the same time. To Farg up resources.
Ever see your future? All these tents appeared in one day from the fire.
Here...There...Everywhere...the parking lots fill. It sucks to be homeless, I know. It's harder when its just yourself, many have others and the group help to get through the first two weeks, which are ALWAYS the hardest. It takes a bit of time to realize you are living out of your car. Might be a year. Could be forever.

All the country homes, gone...just like the Thomas fire. It's taken all away and then where do you go?
TK Channel 3 News: I'm standing with Chief Officer Stadenko. Officer? What do expect to happen here today?

O Stadenko: Having a dream home is the last vestige of the American Middle Class. For equality, we must make everyone equal, especially our new sanctuary residents.

 TK Channel 3 News: Do you expect any violence in this?

O Stadenko: I certainly hope so.

Huge areas of the Pacific NW are tinder/kindling boxes due to the lawsuits Satanic LIBTARDs intent on achieving mega city, agenda 21 herding--environmentalist have been filing to, stop, block or at minimum delay most if not any type of forestry management since the 90's. They file suit to stop the projects, then demand environmental impact studies to be performed, at a minimum. Then during this time huge areas of forest turn into kindling for any thunder storm to pass over, lightning strike hits, boom, massive fires just burn without many ways to stop it. Insert cause of fire method to light, in this case they are saying a power line was the possible issue.

But that's not true. As people are reporting, they see FIREMEN starting fires and there is now much video evidence of blue beam weapons - actual beams from above hitting structures for a few seconds and poof!

In the Redding area fire, reports of a car with brakes that caught fire along side freeway. Fire creates its own wind ones it gets hot enough, all but impossible to stop. So the huge areas of dead timber that has fallen or still standing are just huge fire hazards. What the LIBTARD Enviro freaks have caused here is just criminal imo but they will send out the Alinsky trolls to blame it on global warming. Its total BS for those with back ground forestry, at all. Libtards know exactly what they have doing and have done, they laugh about it behind the scenes.

Just look up the fake spotted owl hoax on the Oregon coast in the 90's for proof. Completely shut down huge areas of private and federal timber lands and it was 100% fake. Tree huggers actually were caught hooting at night in canyons impersonating owls so those areas would be closed due to owl habitat. Forestry portions of NAFTA was another tactic to crush the timber industry and again all by design by the Satanic LIBTARDs intent on achieving mega city, agenda 21 herding.

no more house in the country for you...now, go get in your cramped mega apartment and live like a troll for the rest of your days...or we'll take that away, too. CHIEF OFFICER STADENKO, Angry Federal Mgmt Agent

No. Cal. Witness Account of Suspicious Firestorm Activity by Former Volunteer Firefighter

SOTN Editor’s Note:
The following firsthand account is perfectly consistent with the observations and analyses of SOTN.  Every reader is encouraged to study and understand the implications of this testimony.  We the People are not very far from acting against the weather warfare and environmental terrorism that’s being inflicted our nation.
State of the Nation
November 11, 2018

Here’s a heads up from northern California. Having lived here for 40 years, I have first hand knowledge and experience of these waves of massive fires over the last 3 or 4 years having experienced 2 here in my own neighborhood (Nevada county) last year in October 2017. I also have firsthand experience fighting a wild-fire in southern California in the late 1960’s as a volunteer in north Orange county and east LA county. Cured me of wanting to be a firefighter!
It appears that over the last 3 or 4 years these massive fires may have been started by “directed energy weapons” either from a drone flown out of a base north of Las Vegas or Beale AFB where they also have drones stationed? Or from a rogue satellite? I have observed these drones flying around here in Grass Valley, completely “dark” no running lights for extended periods of time mostly at night. They have a very distinct sound when the are over head at low altitudes doing night-time recon?
PG&E has recently implemented a program here in the north state (which just so happens to be the most conservative area of California) where in “wind events” like is forecasted again tonight, they shut down the grid as a “precaution” to allegedly mitigate wind damage and fire from falling trees, limbs etc on power lines? You wanna buy a bridge…in Brooklyn?
My theory is this: the drones or satellites with these weapon systems can target electronic digital signatures on the ground in the form of . . . wait for it . . . “SMART METERS” which give off a radio / WIFI field signature even in the dark! So when the grid goes down these embedded transceivers go dark and cannot be targeted? You have to ask the question: Is PG&E on to this silent warfare scenario and just trying to cover their corporate asses?
How else do these brick and stone structures with tile or metal roofs burn to the ground in the middle of parking lots with no flammable forest around? Hmmmmm??? We are being targeted for destruction by whoever is controlling these weapon platforms and they’re targeting the most conservative parts of California and the good hardworking people who live here! Entire towns have been completely destroyed, ie. Santa Rosa, Middletown, parts of Redding and now Paradise?
You may be thinking, OK, what is this old guy smoking here? So to prove my point I submit to you a link to a 32-second video posted by the Sacramento Bee that shows a NASA GOES satellite view of northern California on the morning of the start of the “Camp Fire”!  Has a quaint ring to it, a camp fire? Makes me feel all warm and cozy, how about you? Take a look:
Pay attention to first 4 to 6 seconds and pause it, and then watch near the end again at 17 seconds! They aren’t even trying to hide it? Then look up “blue lasers” and see what a hand-held one can do. I wonder where the drones are based?
“The Camp Fire started Thursday, November 8 at 6:33 a.m. in Paradise, near Chico. “In these NASA images,” watch it as it starts and erupts into a huge plume of smoke by Friday morning.” (Sac Bee)
You just can’t make this stuff up, there it is right in a Satellite image! The question is why were they looking at and recording at the exact time of ignition in of all places “Paradise, California? How did they know where and when to look?
How does a huge logging truck burn to the ground on I-5 near Lake Head, actually melt down and yet the logs did not burn up? Logs = wood = sources of fire and heat in a “campfire” or wood stove? Not even charred? A little common sense and observation tell me there is something very wrong with that picture?
Entire houses turned into fine ash with not even metal appliances left and yet the trees next to the homes are intact? Really??

JFK Assassination -- Black Op Radio with John Armstrong and Len Osanic

The JFK Assassination "Cast of Characters"

OPERATION TORCH CALIFORNIA

Globalists Use Geoengineers to Conduct
False Flag Environmental Terrorism
to Distract from Election Theft



“Operation Torch California is a very real ongoing black operation being conducted by the U.S. Intelligence Community in collusion with Operation Gladio.  These false flag terrorist attacks are first and foremost a highly sophisticated psyop.  They have many goals.  And they will continue until California has been completely subjugated by the globalists.”

— Intelligence Analyst & Former U.S. Military Officer


State of the Nation
The apocalyptic firestorms that have afflicted the state of California over the past 4 to 5 years are the direct result of deliberate acts of state-sponsored environmental terrorism.  Specific regions around the state have been purposefully geoengineered to explode into massive conflagrations resembling various types of natural wildfires—forest fires, brush fires and grass fires. See: (CALIFORNIA FIRESTORMS GEOENGINEERED: Here’s why and who’s doing it)
The very same New World Order globalist cabal responsible for turning the Northern Levant (i.e. Syria and Iraq) into a dystopian, post-apocalyptic wasteland is also behind so many manmade calamities that are disguised as natural events across America.  Hurricane Michael is another example of a geoengineered catastrophe that was aimed at the Florida Panhandle. HURRICANE MICHAEL: A Geoengineered Superstorm Targeting Tallahassee and Florida Panhandle—Why!
Whereas the globalists utilized ISIS, Al-Qaeda and Al-Nusra terrorists to wage war against Syria and Iraq, they harness the forces of Mother Nature to stealthily wage weather warfare against the American people.  And they get away with these highly destructive and deadly disasters by blaming ‘the weather’.  They also use mass illegal immigration to flood the border states in order to carry out their Purple Revolution.

California firestorms are false flags and engineered

No one is saying that these biannual wildfire seasons haven’t threatened California every year for many decades.  However, what the geoengineers are doing now is significantly intensifying each successive period of these out-of-control and massive infernos.  The recent firestorm calamities have never taken place with such speed and ferocity, even during the worst wildfire seasons.
It’s what they are doing between the fire seasons that is particularly offensive to the people of California.  The geoegineers have been overseeing a regimen of chemical geoengineering that rains downs a tremendous amount of aluminum oxide onto the land below.  This chemical compound (‎‎Al2O3) comes from coal fly ash and is eventually incorporated into the plant structure of all vegetation. See: U.S. Government Spraying Tons Of Toxic Coal Fly Ash Into Atmosphere Via Chemtrails
In the aftermath of the unrelenting spraying of the skies across America with chemtrail aerosols, forests are slowly dying as the grasslands and brush are drying out at an unprecedented rate.  Chemically mobile aluminum has never been so prevalent throughout the atmosphere and it’s contaminating everything on the earth and in the seas.  Vegetation of every kind is particularly susceptible to dehydration and therefore vulnerable to blight.
Then, after months or even years of droughts that are purposefully geoengineered, it doesn’t take much to trigger these telltale firestorms.  Especially when the perpetrators are employing arson drones and satellite-based laser weapons is it quite easy to start a spate of fires like the “Camp Fire” that just destroyed Paradise, California. California’s Camp Fire: “Most destructive fire in state history”

KEY POINT: To name the most devastating fire in California history “Camp Fire” represents the profound cynicism associated with this well-planned pyro-psyop.  How easy it is to now blame that geoengineered wildfire on a simple ‘camp fire’.

Not only was that horrific fire a fastidiously fabricated false flag operation, it was set by arsonists who were sponsored by and materially supported by the U.S. Federal Government.  How else could the geoengineers get away with the deployment of fire-starting drones and laser-firing satellites except with government approval and the use of state assets. Massive Blue Laser Weapon Being Used in Unidentified City (Video)

KEY POINTS: The laser weapons involved with these acts of terrorism could only be permitted to be placed in the perfect positions to trigger these massive fires with the consent of the state and federal government.  Airspace is, in fact, so tightly controlled and monitored that any intrusion via sky-based weaponry would be known in advance and warily tracked by the appropriate government agencies.  Why, then, is this naked criminal activity always permitted in the skies of California?  Why has Governor Brown allow unfettered spraying of the skies with chemtrails?

Now that the “false flag” component of these manmade fires is understood, the “engineered” aspect ought to be obvious.  These manufactured fires neither start nor spread in the normal vectors associated with a natural wildfire.  Hence, there’s only one explanation: arsonists have been enlisted in various capacities to do the dirty work.  Some of those arsonists are flying drones that function as flame-throwers; others push the button from weaponized aircraft flying overhead.  Then there are the satellite controllers directing laser beams on their targets below. See: Video Evidence of Tech Arson Being Used to Start the ‘Camp Fire’ that Destroyed Paradise CA
Malibu Fire Jumps to 35,000 Acres as Dozens of Homes Destroyed
Arsonists on the ground are frequently used by the perps to make sure these wildfires happen in certain locations.  These arsonists vary widely depending on their assigned mission.  Some are expertly CIA-trained arsonists who are also extremely competent at covering up their crime and not getting caught.  Others are set up as fall guys who may have to be apprehended should the scheme start to unravel.  Then there are those patsies who are purposely sent into the fire zone so that they can be accused (and convicted) of arson, although they are innocent. See: Arson Arrest Made In Fast-Moving Southern California Fire

Hard evidence

The great thing about unaltered satellite footage is that they always possess the classic signatures of unnatural events.  While they can be misinterpreted, they don’t lie.  Hence, in the case of these unnatural firestorms, there is plenty of incriminating hard evidence now available to the trained eye.
The following firsthand and quite revealing witness account is provided by a former volunteer firefighter.  It sums of what many of us armchair investigators have known for years.  However, this particular explanation goes far deeper into these black operations than any other we have seen. No. Cal. Witness Account of Suspicious Firestorm Activity by Former Volunteer Firefighter
Then there is satellite footage like that provided in this video.  There are anomalies which appear in this video which can only be explained as the hand of man, not Mother Nature. VIDEO: CALIFORNIA BURNING BECAUSE OF DEW ATTACK (DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPON)?  The screen-capture below, which was taken from this video footage, is especially telling.
Take note of the 3 symmetrical blue dots (located in the center of this screenshot) that appeared on the satellite image exactly where the “Camp Fire” exploded out of nowhere in No. California.  These laser signatures occurred just prior to the starting of the “Camp Fire” that completely destroyed Paradise, California.
Truly, there are so many manmade pieces to this Firegeddon scenario that they cannot all be covered in this one report.  For instance, look at the melted metal hub caps from this moving video that shows the charred bodies of several individuals trapped in their incinerated vehicles. California Camp Fire Graphic Aftermath (Video)
The photos in the following link show a road in Malibu that buckled even though there was nothing of note that would burn to the high temperatures necessary to melt asphalt and twist the steel guard rails.  Really, how did that happen unless it was somehow torched from above by a very powerful pyro-weapon. How does steel twist and asphalt buckle when there’s nothing to burn under bridge in Malibu fire?
There are many photos at the following link which tell a story that is substantially different from the official narrative.  It’s impossible for houses to burn down to the ground and all sorts of trees and other structures nearby remain completely untouched by the flames.  It’s also impossible for vehicles to get so burned out that the metal tire rims melt into streams of molten fluid, especially when trees a few feet away are unscathed by the fire.

How did these vehicles burn up in the Cali. fires when trees nearby remain untouched?


There’s also evidence emerging of weather modification being used to create favorable conditions for these firestorms to start and then “spread like wildfire”.   Various geoengineering investigators are posting their reports about weather anomalies which can only be explained by the various atmospheric manipulation techniques. See: Satellite Transmitter-Generated Blockade Prevents Weather From Moving Into California (Video)
How did all these vehicles burn so badly on a wide highway surrounded by sparse vegetation?

Who’s behind this and why are they burning down California?

The best way to understand how these disastrous acts of firestorm terrorism are being carried out is to identify who’s doing it and why.  Only then will the true scope of Operation Torch California be properly comprehended.  As follows:

Here’s the short story.

The New World Order globalist cabal ants people out of the hinterlands and into the mega cities. In ventura calif, huge 5000 unit apartment blocks are going up where farms used to be a few years ago. For people to live...live in crime, live in surveillance, live like caged animals with NO parking ANYWHERE.

End of story.

CHAPTER ONE 

War Is A Racket 

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. 

A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of 
the people. Only a small "inside" group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit 
of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge 
fortunes. 



In the World War [I] a mere handful garnered the profits of the conflict. At least 21,000 new 
millionaires and billionaires were made in the United States during the World War. That 
many admitted their huge blood gains in their income tax returns. How many other war 
millionaires falsified their tax returns no one knows. 

How many of these war millionaires shouldered a rifle? How many of them dug a trench? 
How many of them knew what it meant to go hungry in a rat-infested dug-out? How many of 
them spent sleepless, frightened nights, ducking shells and shrapnel and machine gun 
bullets? How many of them parried a bayonet thrust of an enemy? How many of them were 
wounded or killed in battle? 

Out of war nations acquire additional territory, if they are victorious. They just take it. This 
newly acquired territory promptly is exploited by the few - the selfsame few who wrung 
dollars out of blood in the war. The general public shoulders the bill. 

And what is this bill? 

This bill renders a horrible accounting. Newly placed gravestones. Mangled bodies. 
Shattered minds. Broken hearts and homes. Economic instability. Depression and all its 
attendant miseries. Back-breaking taxation for generations and generations. 

For a great many years, as a soldier, I had a suspicion that war was a racket; not until I 
retired to civil life did I fully realize it. Now that I see the international war clouds gathering, 
as they are today, I must face it and speak out. 

Again they are choosing sides. France and Russia met and agreed to stand side by side. Italy 
and Austria hurried to make a similar agreement. Poland and Germany cast sheep's eyes at 
each other, forgetting for the nonce [one unique occasion], their dispute over the Pohsh 
Corridor. 

The assassination of King Alexander of Jugoslavia [Yugoslavia] complicated matters. 
Jugoslavia and Hungary, long bitter enemies, were almost at each other's throats. Italy was 
ready to jump in. But France was waiting. So was Czechoslovakia. All of them are looking 
ahead to war. Not the people - not those who fight and pay and die - only those who foment 
wars and remain safely at home to profit. 

There are 40,000,000 men under arms in the world today, and our statesmen and diplomats 
have the temerity to say that war is not in the making. 

Hell's bells! Are these 40,000,000 men being trained to be dancers? 

Not in Italy, to be sure. Premier Mussolini knows what they are being trained for. He, at 
least, is frank enough to speak out. Only the other day, II Duce in "International 
Conciliation," the publication of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, said: 

"And above all. Fascism, the more it considers and observes the future and the development of 
humanity quite apart from political considerations of the moment, believes neither in the 
possibility nor the utility of perpetual peace. . . . War alone brings up to its highest tension all 



human energy and puts the stamp of nobiUty upon the people who have the courage to meet it." 

Undoubtedly Mussolini means exactly what he says. His well-trained army, his great fleet of 
planes, and even his navy are ready for war -- anxious for it, apparently. His recent stand at 
the side of Hungary in the latter' s dispute with Jugoslavia showed that. And the hurried 
mobilization of his troops on the Austrian border after the assassination of DoUfuss showed 
it too. There are others in Europe too whose sabre rattling presages war, sooner or later. 

Herr Hitler, with his rearming Germany and his constant demands for more and more arms, 
is an equal if not greater menace to peace. France only recently increased the term of 
military service for its youth from a year to eighteen months. 

Yes, all over, nations are camping in their arms. The mad dogs of Europe are on the loose. In 
the Orient the maneuvering is more adroit. Back in 1904, when Russia and Japan fought, we 
kicked out our old friends the Russians and backed Japan. Then our very generous 
international bankers were financing Japan. Now the trend is to poison us against the 
Japanese. What does the "open door" policy to China mean to us? Our trade with China is 
about $90,000,000 a year. Or the Philippine Islands? We have spent about $600,000,000 in 
the Philippines in thirty-five years and we (our bankers and industrialists and speculators) 
have private investments there of less than $200,000,000. 

Then, to save that China trade of about $90,000,000, or to protect these private investments 
of less than $200,000,000 in the Philippines, we would be all stirred up to hate Japan and go 
to war - a war that might well cost us tens of billions of dollars, hundreds of thousands of 
lives of Americans, and many more hundreds of thousands of physically maimed and 
mentally unbalanced men. 

Of course, for this loss, there would be a compensating profit - fortunes would be made. 
Millions and billions of dollars would be piled up. By a few. Munitions makers. Bankers. 
Ship builders. Manufacturers. Meat packers. Speculators. They would fare well. 

Yes, they are getting ready for another war. Why shouldn't they? It pays high dividends. 

But what does it profit the men who are killed? What does it profit their mothers and sisters, 
their wives and their sweethearts? What does it profit their children? 

What does it profit anyone except the very few to whom war means huge profits? 

Yes, and what does it profit the nation? 

Take our own case. Until 1898 we didn't own a bit of territory outside the mainland of North 
America. At that time our national debt was a little more than $1,000,000,000. Then we 
became "internationally minded." We forgot, or shunted aside, the advice of the Father of 
our country. We forgot George Washington's warning about "entangling alliances." We went 
to war. We acquired outside territory. At the end of the World War period, as a direct result 
of our fiddling in international affairs, our national debt had jumped to over 
$25,000,000,000. Our total favorable trade balance during the twenty-five-year period was 
about $24,000,000,000. Therefore, on a purely bookkeeping basis, we ran a little behind year 



for year, and that foreign trade might well have been ours without the wars. 

It would have been far cheaper (not to say safer) for the average American who pays the bills 
to stay out of foreign entanglements. For a very few this racket, like bootlegging and other 
underworld rackets, brings fancy profits, but the cost of operations is always transferred to 
the people -- who do not profit. 



CHAPTER TWO 

Who Makes The Profits? 

The World War, rather our brief participation in it, has cost the United States some 
$52,000,000,000. Figure it out. That means $400 to every American man, woman, and child. 
And we haven't paid the debt yet. We are paying it, our children will pay it, and our 
children's children probably still will be paying the cost of that war. 

The normal profits of a business concern in the United States are six, eight, ten, and 
sometimes twelve percent. But war-time profits -- ah! that is another matter -- twenty, sixty, 
one hundred, three hundred, and even eighteen hundred per cent -- the sky is the limit. All 
that traffic will bear. Uncle Sam has the money. Let's get it. 

Of course, it isn't put that crudely in war time. It is dressed into speeches about patriotism, 
love of country, and "we must all put our shoulders to the wheel," but the profits jump and 
leap and skyrocket -- and are safely pocketed. Let's just take a few examples: 

Take our friends the du Fonts, the powder people -- didn't one of them testify before a 
Senate committee recently that their powder won the war? Or saved the world for 
democracy? Or something? How did they do in the war? They were a patriotic corporation. 
Well, the average earnings of the du Fonts for the period 1910 to 1914 were $6,000,000 a 
year. It wasn't much, but the du Fonts managed to get along on it. Now let's look at their 
average yearly profit during the war years, 1914 to 1918. Fifty-eight million dollars a year 
profit we find! Nearly ten times that of normal times, and the profits of normal times were 
pretty good. An increase in profits of more than 950 per cent. 

Take one of our little steel companies that patriotically shunted aside the making of rails and 
girders and bridges to manufacture war materials. Well, their 1910-1914 yearly earnings 
averaged $6,000,000. Then came the war. And, like loyal citizens, Bethlehem Steel promptly 
turned to munitions making. Did their profits jump -- or did they let Uncle Sam in for a 
bargain? Well, their 1914-1918 average was $49,000,000 a year! 

Or, let's take United States Steel. The normal earnings during the five-year period prior to 
the war were $105,000,000 a year. Not bad. Then along came the war and up went the 
profits. The average yearly profit for the period 1914-1918 was $240,000,000. Not bad. 

There you have some of the steel and powder earnings. Let's look at something else. A little 
copper, perhaps. That always does well in war times. 



Anaconda, for instance. Average yearly earnings during the pre-war years 1910-1914 of 
$10,000,000. During the war years 1914-1918 profits leaped to $34,000,000 per year. 

Or Utah Copper. Average of $5,000,000 per year during the 1910-1914 period. Jumped to an 
average of $21,000,000 yearly profits for the war period. 

Let's group these five, with three smaller companies. The total yearly average profits of the 
pre-war period 1910-1914 were $137,480,000. Then along came the war. The average yearly 
profits for this group skyrocketed to $408,300,000. 

A little increase in profits of approximately 200 per cent. 

Does war pay? It paid them. But they aren't the only ones. There are still others. Let's take 
leather. 

For the three-year period before the war the total profits of Central Leather Company were 
$3,500,000. That was approximately $1,167,000 a year. Well, in 1916 Central Leather 
returned a profit of $15,000,000, a small increase of 1,100 per cent. That's all. The General 
Chemical Company averaged a profit for the three years before the war of a little over 
$800,000 a year. Came the war, and the profits jumped to $12,000,000. a leap of 1,400 per 
cent. 

International Nickel Company - and you can't have a war without nickel - showed an 
increase in profits from a mere average of $4,000,000 a year to $73,000,000 yearly. Not bad? 
An increase of more than 1,700 per cent. 

American Sugar Refining Company averaged $2,000,000 a year for the three years before 
the war. In 1916 a profit of $6,000,000 was recorded. 

Listen to Senate Document No. 259. The Sixty-Fifth Congress, reporting on corporate 
earnings and government revenues. Considering the profits of 122 meat packers, 153 cotton 
manufacturers, 299 garment makers, 49 steel plants, and 340 coal producers during the war. 
Profits under 25 per cent were exceptional. For instance the coal companies made between 
100 per cent and 7,856 per cent on their capital stock during the war. The Chicago packers 
doubled and tripled their earnings. 

And let us not forget the bankers who financed the great war. If anyone had the cream of the 
profits it was the bankers. Being partnerships rather than incorporated organizations, they do 
not have to report to stockholders. And their profits were as secret as they were immense. 
How the bankers made their millions and their billions I do not know, because those little 
secrets never become public - even before a Senate investigatory body. 

But here's how some of the other patriotic industrialists and speculators chiseled their way 
into war profits. 

Take the shoe people. They like war. It brings business with abnormal profits. They made 
huge profits on sales abroad to our allies. Perhaps, like the munitions manufacturers and 
armament makers, they also sold to the enemy. For a dollar is a dollar whether it comes from 



Germany or from France. But they did well by Uncle Sam too. For instance, they sold Uncle 
Sam 35,000,000 pairs of hobnailed service shoes. There were 4,000,000 soldiers. Eight pairs, 
and more, to a soldier. My regiment during the war had only one pair to a soldier. Some of 
these shoes probably are still in existence. They were good shoes. But when the war was 
over Uncle Sam has a matter of 25,000,000 pairs left over. Bought -- and paid for. Profits 
recorded and pocketed. 

There was still lots of leather left. So the leather people sold your Uncle Sam hundreds of 
thousands of McClellan saddles for the cavalry. But there wasn't any American cavalry 
overseas! Somebody had to get rid of this leather, however. Somebody had to make a profit 
in it -- so we had a lot of McClellan saddles. And we probably have those yet. 

Also somebody had a lot of mosquito netting. They sold your Uncle Sam 20,000,000 
mosquito nets for the use of the soldiers overseas. I suppose the boys were expected to put it 
over them as they tried to sleep in muddy trenches -- one hand scratching cooties on their 
backs and the other making passes at scurrying rats. Well, not one of these mosquito nets 
ever got to France! 

Anyhow, these thoughtful manufacturers wanted to make sure that no soldier would be 
without his mosquito net, so 40,000,000 additional yards of mosquito netting were sold to 
Uncle Sam. 

There were pretty good profits in mosquito netting in those days, even if there were no 
mosquitoes in France. I suppose, if the war had lasted just a httle longer, the enterprising 
mosquito netting manufacturers would have sold your Uncle Sam a couple of consignments 
of mosquitoes to plant in France so that more mosquito netting would be in order. 

Airplane and engine manufacturers felt they, too, should get their just profits out of this war. 
Why not? Everybody else was getting theirs. So $1,000,000,000 -- count them if you live 
long enough -- was spent by Uncle Sam in building airplane engines that never left the 
ground! Not one plane, or motor, out of the billion dollars worth ordered, ever got into a 
battle in France. Just the same the manufacturers made their little profit of 30, 100, or 
perhaps 300 per cent. 

Undershirts for soldiers cost 140 [cents] to make and uncle Sam paid 300 to 400 each for 
them -- a nice little profit for the undershirt manufacturer. And the stocking manufacturer 
and the uniform manufacturers and the cap manufacturers and the steel helmet manufacturers 
-- all got theirs. 

Why, when the war was over some 4,000,000 sets of equipment -- knapsacks and the things 
that go to fill them -- crammed warehouses on this side. Now they are being scrapped 
because the regulations have changed the contents. But the manufacturers collected their 
wartime profits on them -- and they will do it all over again the next time. 

There were lots of brilliant ideas for profit making during the war. 

One very versatile patriot sold Uncle Sam twelve dozen 48-inch wrenches. Oh, they were 
very nice wrenches. The only trouble was that there was only one nut ever made that was 



large enough for these wrenches. That is the one that holds the turbines at Niagara Falls. 
Well, after Uncle Sam had bought them and the manufacturer had pocketed the profit, the 
wrenches were put on freight cars and shunted all around the United States in an effort to 
find a use for them. When the Armistice was signed it was indeed a sad blow to the wrench 
manufacturer. He was just about to make some nuts to fit the wrenches. Then he planned to 
sell these, too, to your Uncle Sam. 

Still another had the brilliant idea that colonels shouldn't ride in automobiles, nor should 
they even ride on horseback. One has probably seen a picture of Andy Jackson riding in a 
buckboard. Well, some 6,000 buckboards were sold to Uncle Sam for the use of colonels! 
Not one of them was used. But the buckboard manufacturer got his war profit. 

The shipbuilders felt they should come in on some of it, too. They built a lot of ships that 
made a lot of profit. More than $3,000,000,000 worth. Some of the ships were all right. But 
$635,000,000 worth of them were made of wood and wouldn't float! The seams opened up 
-- and they sank. We paid for them, though. And somebody pocketed the profits. 

It has been estimated by statisticians and economists and researchers that the war cost your 
Uncle Sam $52,000,000,000. Of this sum, $39,000,000,000 was expended in the actual war 
itself. This expenditure yielded $16,000,000,000 in profits. That is how the 21,000 
billionaires and millionaires got that way. This $16,000,000,000 profits is not to be sneezed 
at. It is quite a tidy sum. And it went to a very few. 

The Senate (Nye) committee probe of the munitions industry and its wartime profits, despite 
its sensational disclosures, hardly has scratched the surface. 

Even so, it has had some effect. The State Department has been studying "for some time" 
methods of keeping out of war. The War Department suddenly decides it has a wonderful 
plan to spring. The Administration names a committee -- with the War and Navy 
Departments ably represented under the chairmanship of a Wall Street speculator -- to hmit 
profits in war time. To what extent isn't suggested. Hmmm. Possibly the profits of 300 and 
600 and 1,600 per cent of those who turned blood into gold in the World War would be 
limited to some smaller figure. 

Apparently, however, the plan does not call for any limitation of losses -- that is, the losses 
of those who fight the war. As far as I have been able to ascertain there is nothing in the 
scheme to limit a soldier to the loss of but one eye, or one arm, or to limit his wounds to one 
or two or three. Or to limit the loss of life. 

There is nothing in this scheme, apparently, that says not more than 12 per cent of a regiment 
shall be wounded in battle, or that not more than 7 per cent in a division shall be killed. 

Of course, the committee cannot be bothered with such trifling matters. 



CHAPTER THREE 
Who Pays The Bills? 

Who provides the profits -- these nice little profits of 20, 100, 300, 1,500 and 1,800 per cent? 
We all pay them -- in taxation. We paid the bankers their profits when we bought Liberty 
Bonds at $100.00 and sold them back at $84 or $86 to the bankers. These bankers collected 
$100 plus. It was a simple manipulation. The bankers control the security marts. It was easy 
for them to depress the price of these bonds. Then all of us -- the people -- got frightened and 
sold the bonds at $84 or $86. The bankers bought them. Then these same bankers stimulated 
a boom and government bonds went to par -- and above. Then the bankers collected their 
profits. 

But the soldier pays the biggest part of the bill. 

If you don't believe this, visit the American cemeteries on the battlefields abroad. Or visit 
any of the veteran's hospitals in the United States. On a tour of the country, in the midst of 
which I am at the time of this writing, I have visited eighteen government hospitals for 
veterans. In them are a total of about 50,000 destroyed men -- men who were the pick of the 
nation eighteen years ago. The very able chief surgeon at the government hospital; at 
Milwaukee, where there are 3,800 of the living dead, told me that mortality among veterans 
is three times as great as among those who stayed at home. 

Boys with a normal viewpoint were taken out of the fields and offices and factories and 
classrooms and put into the ranks. There they were remolded; they were made over; they 
were made to "about face"; to regard murder as the order of the day. They were put shoulder 
to shoulder and, through mass psychology, they were entirely changed. We used them for a 
couple of years and trained them to think nothing at all of killing or of being killed. 

Then, suddenly, we discharged them and told them to make another "about face" ! This time 
they had to do their own readjustment, sans [without] mass psychology, sans officers' aid 
and advice and sans nation-wide propaganda. We didn't need them any more. So we 
scattered them about without any "three-minute" or "Liberty Loan" speeches or parades. 
Many, too many, of these fine young boys are eventually destroyed, mentally, because they 
could not make that final "about face" alone. 

In the government hospital in Marion, Indiana, 1,800 of these boys are in pens! Five hundred 
of them in a barracks with steel bars and wires all around outside the buildings and on the 
porches. These already have been mentally destroyed. These boys don't even look like 
human beings. Oh, the looks on their faces! Physically, they are in good shape; mentally, 
they are gone. 

There are thousands and thousands of these cases, and more and more are coming in all the 
time. The tremendous excitement of the war, the sudden cutting off of that excitement -- the 
young boys couldn't stand it. 

That's a part of the bill. So much for the dead -- they have paid their part of the war profits. 
So much for the mentally and physically wounded -- they are paying now their share of the 



war profits. But the others paid, too -- they paid with heartbreaks when they tore themselves 
away from their firesides and their families to don the uniform of Uncle Sam -- on which a 
profit had been made. They paid another part in the training camps where they were 
regimented and drilled while others took their jobs and their places in the lives of their 
communities. The paid for it in the trenches where they shot and were shot; where they were 
hungry for days at a time; where they slept in the mud and the cold and in the rain -- with the 
moans and shrieks of the dying for a horrible lullaby. 

But don't forget -- the soldier paid part of the dollars and cents bill too. 

Up to and including the Spanish-American War, we had a prize system, and soldiers and 
sailors fought for money. During the Civil War they were paid bonuses, in many instances, 
before they went into service. The government, or states, paid as high as $1,200 for an 
enlistment. In the Spanish-American War they gave prize money. When we captured any 
vessels, the soldiers all got their share - at least, they were supposed to. Then it was found 
that we could reduce the cost of wars by taking all the prize money and keeping it, but 
conscripting [drafting] the soldier anyway. Then soldiers couldn't bargain for their labor. 
Everyone else could bargain, but the soldier couldn't. 

Napoleon once said, 

"All men are enamored of decorations . . . they positively hunger for them." 

So by developing the Napoleonic system - the medal business - the government learned it 
could get soldiers for less money, because the boys liked to be decorated. Until the Civil War 
there were no medals. Then the Congressional Medal of Honor was handed out. It made 
enlistments easier. After the Civil War no new medals were issued until the 
Spanish- American War. 

In the World War, we used propaganda to make the boys accept conscription. They were 
made to feel ashamed if they didn't join the army. 

So vicious was this war propaganda that even God was brought into it. With few exceptions 
our clergymen joined in the clamor to kill, kill, kill. To kill the Germans. God is on our side . 
. . it is His will that the Germans be killed. 

And in Germany, the good pastors called upon the Germans to kill the aUies ... to please the 
same God. That was a part of the general propaganda, built up to make people war conscious 
and murder conscious. 

Beautiful ideals were painted for our boys who were sent out to die. This was the "war to end 
all wars." This was the "war to make the world safe for democracy." No one mentioned to 
them, as they marched away, that their going and their dying would mean huge war profits. 
No one told these American soldiers that they might be shot down by bullets made by their 
own brothers here. No one told them that the ships on which they were going to cross might 
be torpedoed by submarines built with United States patents. They were just told it was to be 
a "glorious adventure." 



Thus, having stuffed patriotism down their throats, it was decided to make them help pay for 
the war, too. So, we gave them the large salary of $30 a month. 

All they had to do for this munificent sum was to leave their dear ones behind, give up their 
jobs, lie in swampy trenches, eat canned willy (when they could get it) and kill and kill and 
kill . . . and be killed. 

But wait! 

Half of that wage (just a little more than a riveter in a shipyard or a laborer in a munitions 
factory safe at home made in a day) was promptly taken from him to support his dependents, 
so that they would not become a charge upon his community. Then we made him pay what 
amounted to accident insurance -- something the employer pays for in an enlightened state -- 
and that cost him $6 a month. He had less than $9 a month left. 

Then, the most crowning insolence of all -- he was virtually blackjacked into paying for his 
own ammunition, clothing, and food by being made to buy Liberty Bonds. Most soldiers got 
no money at all on pay days. 

We made them buy Liberty Bonds at $100 and then we bought them back -- when they came 
back from the war and couldn't find work -- at $84 and $86. And the soldiers bought about 
$2,000,000,000 worth of these bonds! 

Yes, the soldier pays the greater part of the bill. His family pays too. They pay it in the same 
heart-break that he does. As he suffers, they suffer. At nights, as he lay in the trenches and 
watched shrapnel burst about him, they lay home in their beds and tossed sleeplessly -- his 
father, his mother, his wife, his sisters, his brothers, his sons, and his daughters. 

When he returned home minus an eye, or minus a leg or with his mind broken, they suffered 
too -- as much as and even sometimes more than he. Yes, and they, too, contributed their 
dollars to the profits of the munitions makers and bankers and shipbuilders and the 
manufacturers and the speculators made. They, too, bought Liberty Bonds and contributed to 
the profit of the bankers after the Armistice in the hocus-pocus of manipulated Liberty Bond 
prices. 

And even now the families of the wounded men and of the mentally broken and those who 
never were able to readjust themselves are still suffering and still paying. 



CHAPTER FOUR 

How To Smash This Racket! 

WELL, it's a racket, all right. 

A few profit -- and the many pay. But there is a way to stop it. You can't end it by 
disarmament conferences. You can't eliminate it by peace parleys at Geneva. Well-meaning 



but impractical groups can't wipe it out by resolutions. It can be smashed effectively only by 
taking the profit out of war. 

The only way to smash this racket is to conscript capital and industry and labor before the 
nations manhood can be conscripted. One month before the Government can conscript the 
young men of the nation -- it must conscript capital and industry and labor. Let the officers 
and the directors and the high-powered executives of our armament factories and our 
munitions makers and our shipbuilders and our airplane builders and the manufacturers of all 
the other things that provide profit in war time as well as the bankers and the speculators, be 
conscripted -- to get $30 a month, the same wage as the lads in the trenches get. 

Let the workers in these plants get the same wages -- all the workers, all presidents, all 
executives, all directors, all managers, all bankers -- yes, and all generals and all admirals 
and all officers and all politicians and all government office holders -- everyone in the nation 
be restricted to a total monthly income not to exceed that paid to the soldier in the trenches! 

Let all these kings and tycoons and masters of business and all those workers in industry and 
all our senators and governors and majors pay half of their monthly $30 wage to their 
families and pay war risk insurance and buy Liberty Bonds. 

Why shouldn't they? 

They aren't running any risk of being killed or of having their bodies mangled or their minds 
shattered. They aren't sleeping in muddy trenches. They aren't hungry. The soldiers are! 

Give capital and industry and labor thirty days to think it over and you will find, by that time, 
there will be no war. That will smash the war racket -- that and nothing else. 

Maybe I am a little too optimistic. Capital still has some say. So capital won't permit the 
taking of the profit out of war until the people -- those who do the suffering and still pay the 
price -- make up their minds that those they elect to office shall do their bidding, and not that 
of the profiteers. 

Another step necessary in this fight to smash the war racket is the limited plebiscite to 
determine whether a war should be declared. A plebiscite not of all the voters but merely of 
those who would be called upon to do the fighting and dying. There wouldn't be very much 
sense in having a 76-year-old president of a munitions factory or the flat-footed head of an 
international banking firm or the cross-eyed manager of a uniform manufacturing plant - all 
of whom see visions of tremendous profits in the event of war - voting on whether the 
nation should go to war or not. They never would be called upon to shoulder arms - to sleep 
in a trench and to be shot. Only those who would be called upon to risk their lives for their 
country should have the privilege of voting to determine whether the nation should go to 
war. 

There is ample precedent for restricting the voting to those affected. Many of our states have 
restrictions on those permitted to vote. In most, it is necessary to be able to read and write 
before you may vote. In some, you must own property. It would be a simple matter each year 
for the men coming of military age to register in their communities as they did in the draft 



during the World War and be examined physically. Those who could pass and who would 
therefore be called upon to bear arms in the event of war would be ehgible to vote in a 
limited plebiscite. They should be the ones to have the power to decide -- and not a Congress 
few of whose members are within the age limit and fewer still of whom are in physical 
condition to bear arms. Only those who must suffer should have the right to vote. 

A third step in this business of smashing the war racket is to make certain that our military 
forces are truly forces for defense only. 

At each session of Congress the question of further naval appropriations comes up. The 
swivel-chair admirals of Washington (and there are always a lot of them) are very adroit 
lobbyists. And they are smart. They don't shout that "We need a lot of battleships to war on 
this nation or that nation." Oh no. First of all, they let it be known that America is menaced 
by a great naval power. Almost any day, these admirals will tell you, the great fleet of this 
supposed enemy will strike suddenly and annihilate 125,000,000 people. Just like that. Then 
they begin to cry for a larger navy. For what? To fight the enemy? Oh my, no. Oh, no. For 
defense purposes only. 

Then, incidentally, they announce maneuvers in the Pacific. For defense. Uh, huh. 

The Pacific is a great big ocean. We have a tremendous coastline on the Pacific. Will the 
maneuvers be off the coast, two or three hundred miles? Oh, no. The maneuvers will be two 
thousand, yes, perhaps even thirty-five hundred miles, off the coast. 

The Japanese, a proud people, of course will be pleased beyond expression to see the united 
States fleet so close to Nippon's shores. Even as pleased as would be the residents of 
California were they to dimly discern through the morning mist, the Japanese fleet playing at 
war games off Los Angeles. 

The ships of our navy, it can be seen, should be specifically hmited, by law, to within 200 
miles of our coastline. Had that been the law in 1898 the Maine would never have gone to 
Havana Harbor. She never would have been blown up. There would have been no war with 
Spain with its attendant loss of life. Two hundred miles is ample, in the opinion of experts, 
for defense purposes. Our nation cannot start an offensive war if its ships can't go further 
than 200 miles from the coastline. Planes might be permitted to go as far as 500 miles from 
the coast for purposes of reconnaissance. And the army should never leave the territorial 
limits of our nation. 

To summarize: Three steps must be taken to smash the war racket. 

1. We must take the profit out of war. 

2. We must permit the youth of the land who would bear arms to decide whether or not 
there should be war. 

3. We must limit our military forces to home defense purposes. 



CHAPTER FIVE 
To Hell With War! 

I am not a fool as to believe that war is a thing of the past. I know the people do not want 
war, but there is no use in saying we cannot be pushed into another war. 

Looking back, Woodrow Wilson was re-elected president in 1916 on a platform that he had 
"kept us out of war" and on the implied promise that he would "keep us out of war." Yet, 
five months later he asked Congress to declare war on Germany. 

In that five-month interval the people had not been asked whether they had changed their 
minds. The 4,000,000 young men who put on uniforms and marched or sailed away were not 
asked whether they wanted to go forth to suffer and die. 

Then what caused our government to change its mind so suddenly? 

Money. 

An allied commission, it may be recalled, came over shortly before the war declaration and 
called on the President. The President summoned a group of advisers. The head of the 
commission spoke. Stripped of its diplomatic language, this is what he told the President and 
his group: 

"There is no use kidding ourselves any longer. The cause of the allies is lost. We now owe you 
(American bankers, American munitions makers, American manufacturers, American 
speculators, American exporters) five or six billion dollars. 

If we lose (and without the help of the United States we must lose) we, England, France and 
Italy, cannot pay back this money . . . and Germany won't. 

So ... " 

Had secrecy been outlawed as far as war negotiations were concerned, and had the press 
been invited to be present at that conference, or had radio been available to broadcast the 
proceedings, America never would have entered the World War. But this conference, like all 
war discussions, was shrouded in utmost secrecy. When our boys were sent off to war they 
were told it was a "war to make the world safe for democracy" and a "war to end all wars." 

Well, eighteen years after, the world has less of democracy than it had then. Besides, what 
business is it of ours whether Russia or Germany or England or France or Italy or Austria 
live under democracies or monarchies? Whether they are Fascists or Communists? Our 
problem is to preserve our own democracy. 

And very little, if anything, has been accomplished to assure us that the World War was 
really the war to end all wars. 

Yes, we have had disarmament conferences and limitations of arms conferences. They don't 
mean a thing. One has just failed; the results of another have been nullified. We send our 



professional soldiers and our sailors and our politicians and our diplomats to these 
conferences. And what happens? 

The professional soldiers and sailors don't want to disarm. No admiral wants to be without a 
ship. No general wants to be without a command. Both mean men without jobs. They are not 
for disarmament. They cannot be for limitations of arms. And at all these conferences, 
lurking in the background but all-powerful, just the same, are the sinister agents of those who 
profit by war. They see to it that these conferences do not disarm or seriously limit 
armaments. 

The chief aim of any power at any of these conferences has not been to achieve disarmament 
to prevent war but rather to get more armament for itself and less for any potential foe. 

There is only one way to disarm with any semblance of practicability. That is for all nations 
to get together and scrap every ship, every gun, every rifle, every tank, every war plane. 
Even this, if it were possible, would not be enough. 

The next war, according to experts, will be fought not with battleships, not by artillery, not 
with rifles and not with machine guns. It will be fought with deadly chemicals and gases. 

Secretly each nation is studying and perfecting newer and ghastlier means of annihilating its 
foes wholesale. Yes, ships will continue to be built, for the shipbuilders must make their 
profits. And guns still will be manufactured and powder and rifles will be made, for the 
munitions makers must make their huge profits. And the soldiers, of course, must wear 
uniforms, for the manufacturer must make their war profits too. 

But victory or defeat will be determined by the skill and ingenuity of our scientists. 

If we put them to work making poison gas and more and more fiendish mechanical and 
explosive instruments of destruction, they will have no time for the constructive job of 
building greater prosperity for all peoples. By putting them to this useful job, we can all 
make more money out of peace than we can out of war -- even the munitions makers. 

So. ..I say, 

TO HELL WITH WAR!
