    A report on how the greed of a privileged few, subsidized by public funding, creates substantial profits for themselves from mass human suffering.This was a speech given by General Butler during a nationwide tour in the early 1930's, but it applies even more today! Listen as he frankly discusses, from his experience as a career military officer, how business interests commercially benefit from warfare. He then suggests several practical solutions for reducing the pillage.

    D. K. Parshall says: "He Got It Right"
    "Sadly some things don't change."
    Overall

    Short but enlightening book. Don't judge all Marines by Oliver North! Please note that the reality of war is not like a John Wayne movie, TV show or video game.

  • Area 51: An Uncensored History of America's Top Secret Military Base

    Myths and hypotheses about Area 51 have long abounded, thanks to the intense secrecy enveloping it. Some claim it is home to aliens, underground tunnel systems, and nuclear facilities. Others believe that the lunar landing was filmed there. The prevalence of these rumors stems from the fact that no credible insider has ever divulged the truth about his time inside the base. Until now.

    Overall

    The author skipped using a proof reader! As a pilot I couldn't help but wonder at her constant errors pertaining to the world of flying, piloting and common aircraft. If she doesn't have a grasp of the basics I can only wonder about the rest...
