REMEMBER SMEDLEY - MORE SHOULD

With war yet again on the doorstep, few Americans, and certainly fewer other nationalities, may recognize the name Smedley Butler. Some may associate it with the bulldog mascot of the San Diego Marines. They would not realize that on his military retirement in 1931, Butler was said to be the most decorated marine in US history.

He was born in Pennsylvania, on July 30 1881, with the chart of a committed warrior. In his teenage years Butler was quarterback for his Philadelphian school football side and captain of their baseball team. He left school before his 17th birthday, joining the Marines Corps, to fight in the Spanish/American War.

Butler’s early heroics and patriotic fervour led to a tattoo of an "Eagle, Globe, and Anchor" covering his entire chest. His birth horoscope shows the war planet Mars positioned at the degree of the most feared fixed star in the sky - Algol.

The blinking binary, Algol, represents the severed head of Medusa held up in the constellation Perseus. In Oriental astrology Algol is called the star of piled up corpses. Mars was also with Algol when the US military detonated their first nuclear bomb in the desert of Alamogordo, New Mexico, which says it all.

Butler certainly would have made a fearsome enemy. His military Mars was also closely positioned between the planet of success, Jupiter, and Pluto the planet of focused intensity. His distinguished 34-year military career took him to the Philippines, the Chinese Boxer Wars, and involved numerous US interventions into Central American countries, like Nicaragua, the Honduras and Mexico.

Yet all of these incursions, in the trenches or in command, eventually led him to one moral conclusion. A philosophy summed up in his 1935 provocative book, ‘War Is A Racket’. He eventually saw international war as an industrial exercise funded with both public dollars and lives. Butler said, ‘It may seem odd for me, a military man to adopt such a comparison. Truthfulness compels me to.’ The next paragraph is taken directly from his work.

THE BUTLER TOLD ME

"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."

That compelling confession probably sums up why Smedley Butler is not quite so famous today, as when he resigned as a Major-General. It’s not the kind of message that government wants you to hear – especially from a highly decorated military hero. Butler’s answers to preventing war were threefold. Change the line of responsibility and adopt a user pay system.

The user pays idea required the first conscripts to be those directly benefiting by the war – the bankers, the energy investors and associated speculators. Secondly – allow crucial war declarations to be decided by a referendum voted on by the people required to fight them. Thirdly – restrict national navy’s to within 200 klm of other countries coastlines, and remove all interventionist and mercenary armies.

Butler’s 1935 book also had an uncanny and prophetic message, six years before Japan’s air force decimated Pearl Harbour, "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."

AUSTRALIA FOLLOWS THE USA

On Friday afternoon September 12 2014, Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott raised the national terrorist threat rating to ‘high’. He declared that an attack was likely but then claimed there was “no specific intelligence of particular plots”. Abbott added the new rating would be accompanied by a “modest information campaign.” Of course, it was anything but.

Around 1.30 pm on Sunday September 14 2014 Abbott committed 600 troops to the United Arab Emirates, to join a US-led international coalition combatting what he descibed as a death cult’. By Monday the military were on their way and the media were awash with the terrorist threats. Then came an intercepted phone call allegedly attached to a nefarious beheading plot.

At 4 am on Thursday September 18, 870 police conducted Australia’s largest anti-terror raids on 25 local homes in Sydney and Brisbane. Two men are being held on suspicion of intent to carry out terrorist attacks. The raids come a week before Abbott presents new anti-terrorism laws for Australia to accompany the upcoming New Moon on Wednesday September 24. He announced these new laws back on August 5.

WRITTEN IN THE STARS?

You could say that Australia’s involvement in yet another Middle East war was written in the stars, using the repetitive 12-year Jupiter in Leo cycle that I have written about on these pages before. Again Australia’s involvement will be defended as eliminating terrorist threats and for a just and humanitarian cause. But the historical evidence shows that it has created an greater humanitarian crisis, with every successive Jupiter return.

With Jupiter in the first decan of Leo, at 9 degrees, on January 21 1991 Prime Minister Bob Hawke ordered Australian troops to Iraq on US 'advice'. He told his parliament about it later. This war led directly to formation of Al-Queda. On March 18 2003, with Jupiter at 8 degrees of Leo Prime Minister John Howard informed his government that he’d taken a call from US President George W Bush just before 6 am that morning – Australia were again at war. This war led to the creation of ISIL.

As Jupiter again tranverses this same area of the zodiac there’s little surprise with Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott committing Australians to a third Middle East war. Or the public again wearing ‘heightened security threats’.

The connecting thread to all these wars is that Jupiter was moving across the same degrees of Leo when the first oil gusher was tapped in the Middle East in 1908, and passed over it again precisely when the Middle East was greedily partitioned among western powers following WWI. There's a lesson in all of that.

In the Orient they call Jupiter, Guru – the Great Teacher. It carries the definitive message here. As Smedley Butler might muse to today’s politicians – save me the soliloquies. When you talk of terror, own up to the real source of the problem, both abroad and at home. Butler rightly reasoned, “You can't eliminate it (war) 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.”

Leo or Leo Rising: There’s not a lot you can’t figure out providing you keep a cool head and stick to cold logic. The right information will lead you to the correct conclusions. Conversation and negotiation are important. The good listener keeps his/her ears close to the ground. There are deals to be made, agreements in the works.

Virgo or Virgo Rising: When you’re about to travel through the desert it’s a good idea to check out your water supply.

Libra or Libra Rising: If your birthday falls around the 24th of September you probably don’t need to read this. You may have already felt the strong winds of change blowing.

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising: Nobody has to see you doing this. You can be like an undercover sleuth. In fact it’s better if you are. Confidentiality is vital at times – this is one of them. Don’t be like the bad poker player who blushes when they get a full house. What’s the use of a secret if everybody knows? This is just between you and you know who.

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising: Are you doing it for the money, the glory, or because you love to do it? Unless you have a considerable ego, the glory will soon pale. There has to be some reward factor for your labor. That’s why the money is a useful incentive. Even when you don’t like something people will always remind you, ‘yes but think of the money’. Best of all of course is when it’s a labor of love. That way you put your heart and soul into it – and that’s ultra important this week. Click here for more in the monthlies.

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising: When the Hollywood star system was at its peak, it was all about image. You could be as short as cowboy hero Alan Ladd but still ride tall in the saddle. That is providing you were shot – bad pun intended - from the right angle. Selling yourself to the public, or at least to somebody who genuinely counts, seems to be extra important now. Get ready to be noticed, but make it for the right reasons. It's a time to take charge of your publicity – or hire a good manager.

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising: Robert Browning wrote, "Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp, or what's a heaven for?" This week’s New Moon, in your house of the higher mind, human potential and big picture thinking, invites an expansive approach. It’s about seeing the potential in something new, or a light at the end of the tunnel. The fact that educative Jupiter also ties in nicely with innovative Uranus could mean you meet Buddha on the road. Be open – this one could be special.

Pisces or Pisces Rising: Some fear is for a valid reason. It’s based on logical self-preservation. You don’t dance with rattlesnakes. Other fears are irrational. They’re based on insecurities, or past events that you had little to no control over. Somehow you’re dealing with some of that now. The answer lies in being able to separate the two, having the courage to face facts and some wisdom of hindsight. Sharing involves certain vulnerabilities therefore the benefits should considerably outweigh the risks. For more click here for the monthlies.
