“I spent 33 years and 4 months in active military service and during that time, I spent most days as a high-class muscle man for America’s Big Business, for Wall Street and it’s bankers. In short, I was a racketeer and an enforcer for capitalism. 

I helped make Mexico safe for American oil interests. I helped make Haiti and Cuba safe for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of the banana companies. I helped purify Nicaragua for the Brown Brothers. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests. I helped make Honduras right for United Fruit Company. In China, I helped to see that Standard Oil went about its business, unmolested. 

Looking back, I might have been able to give Al Capone a few tips. The best he was able to do was to operate his rackets in three Chicago districts. I operated in three continents” – Maj. Genl Smedley Butler, United States Marine Corps (1881-1940)
