"I believe that if we had and would keep our dirty bloody, dollar-soaked fingers out of the business of these nations so full of depressed exploited people, they will arrive at a solution of their own. And if, unfortunately, their revolution must be of the violent type, because the haves refuse to share with the have-nots by any peaceful method, at least what they get will be their own and not the American style, which they don't want, and above all don't want crammed down their throats by Americans."
- General David M. Shoup, Commandant of the Marine Corps 1966-63 ... as quoted by Scott Camil.
