When FDR became President, much like today...a vocal group of businessmen decided that FDR had to go...So they planed a coup d'tat and Smedley Butler was going to be installed as a Dictator... Smedley ratted them out, and that was the end of that..

The American Legion Department of Conneticut Commander was one of the conspirators, and that left a stain on the Legion.....
Thanks from Hollywood

I never said you did. I'm a great admirer of Gen. Butler and can see that you are to.
Just because I usually disagree with you on politics not not necessarily mean I always disagree with you about everything.

Military guys will tell it like it is when no one else will.

Hired guns indeed.

My understanding of World War I was that there weren't any bad guys, or everyone was a bad guy. There was no Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini and other despots, just a bunch of European nations who have pushed and shoved each other for a century, and an assassination in Sarajevo set the whole war in motion.

Why was America involved? Stay home, stay out of Europe, let them fight each other and America can deal with who came on top. Horrible that millions of Europeans were killing and dying, but to me, there was not a good or bad side, and were all bad.
