PRECISION

Now Tubularsock is going to give you a lesson in angles taken directly from Tubularsock’s almost best selling book Spooky Geometry  on sale at the Tubularsock Emporium of Science and Black Holes, Ltd.

It is pretty simple and it goes like this: What is the meaning of precision?

Answer: “the quality, condition, or fact of being exact and accurate”.

Can’t get any simpler than giving you the answer, right?

Now let us consider Precision Strikes, Precision Bombing, and Pin-Point-Precision as in military exploits.

What comes to the PUBLIC’S mind? Yep, “the quality, condition, or fact of being exact and accurate”.

One kind of feels at least a little bit smart for getting the correct answer. Right?

BUT NOW, consider the ANGLE!

According to the United States Joint Chiefs of Staff PRECISION has NOTHING to do with hitting the target directly and minimizing “collateral damage” (the sanitized term for innocent dead people). And this is where the ANGLE comes in …… while YOU are thinking …….. “the quality, condition, or fact of being exact and accurate”……. the Joint Chiefs are thinking:

“the ability of joint forces to locate, survey, discern, and track objectives or targets; select, organize, and use the correct systems; generate desired effects; assess results; and re-engage with decisive speed and overwhelming operational tempo as required, throughout the full range of military operations.”

In short, to them a PRECISION STRIKE does not imply accuracy but rather a discriminate targeting process.

You think accurate ……….. they think the planning process. Get the angle?

Congress, the President, the Maimed Stream Media infer accuracy and the public assumes accuracy. BUT THE ANGLE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ACCURACY AT ALL!

The precision to the military has only to do with PLANNING THE ATTACK. It is the process of getting all their resources on the same page but once the target is selected by the PRECISION PROCESS they may even miss the fucking target completely and hit the wedding party but it is still considered a “PRECISION STRIKE” because they planned it.

That’s the ANGLE.

But here is the best part ……..

The Hellfire Missile is one of those lethal missiles that the U.S. uses on its drones.

Are they accurate as defined by the dictionary rather than the military? Well lets see.

“Weapons accuracy is generally measured using the term ‘Circular Error Probability’ or CEP. In tests, a number of weapons are launched at a target and then an imaginary circle is drawn around the 50% of strikes closest to the aim point. The radius of that circle becomes the CEP (or accuracy) of that weapon. Rather unbelievably, the 50% of the strikes that fall outside this circle are simply ignored (I have yet to find an explanation for this). Importantly then, official statements about the accuracy of particular weapons are not based on any empirical surveys of actual use in warfare, but instead based on manufacturers’ claims about performance under test conditions.”   ……. Chris Cole (Drone Wars UK)

Tube precision angles

Now if you take the ANGLE of the Joint Chiefs and the ANGLE of the Manufacturer’s accuracy in testing subtracting 50% of the total due to missing the assigned test target all together and you add in the cost of a Hellfire Missile at $110,000.00 per unit but only 50% of them even get near the target meaning that the cost of hitting the target becomes more than $220,000.00 per unit. The number of what percentage of the remaining 50% get close to hitting their target is unknown . So what does all this equal to in the grand formula?

Does Tubularsock really have to answer that question for you?

    Precision is only precise for handgrenades, horseshoes, and/or US military bombing campaigns.

    campaign (kamˈpān)
    noun
    a series of military operations intended to achieve a particular objective, confined to a particular area, or involving a specified type of fighting

    particular [pə(r)ˈtikyələr]
    adjective
    1 [ attrib. ] used to single out an individual member of a specified group or class

    Particularly precise?

      Thanks Don for clearing this all up for Tubularsock and especially “Particularly precise”. Tubularsock thinks that individual must be really excited to be singled out. Gosh, all that attention from the sky and all.

    In my soon to be released book, Masks Hide Politicians, I state that, masks are a must for precision bombs that aren’t precise, or pretend to not be precise, either way it’s in my book, …here is the picture on the hardcover of my soon to be released book:

      Well Tubularsock is impressed. A picture is worth a thousand words and using that metric that makes Tubularsock a speed reader! And thank you Genie for the heads up on your almost new book. As you may know, a hard covered book can be used as a weapon.

    The Military’s definition of precision: “it’s close enough for horse shoes and hand grenades, and besides, it’s fun to blow shit up and kill innocent and helpless people!”

    If you ask me, the military and the elite assholes who own and operate it need to be “terminated” with PRECISION and “EXTREME PREJUDICE!”

    Or, in other words, “Fuck ’em all, fuck em all, the long, the short and the tall…!”

      sojourner, “Fuck ’em all, fuck em all, the long, the short and the tall…!” does that go with the pledge of allegiance?

      Fuck ’em all, fuck em all,
      the long, the short and the tall…
      and to the republic for which it stands

      One “Fuck ’em all, under fuck em all,
      with the long, the short and the tall…!”

      Shit, now where did Tubularsock put that fucking flag?

      And thanks for the reblog. You could be a saint but Tubularsock
      knows you too well!

        Yes, very much so!

        Who cares? Fuck the flag!

        And yes, a saint I ain’t!

        As Billy Joel sang, “I’d rather live with the sinners than die with the saints, the sinners are much more fun! But only the good die young!”

        Well with an attitude like that young man you won’t be able to be Grand Marshal in the 4th of July Parade!

        Tubularsock stands with Billy Joel on being a sinner! For Tubularsock it’s too late anyway.

        Thanks, it’s been ages since the word young was attached to anything pertaining to me!

  5. Don’t worry about it, Tube. It’s probably the Rendon Group trying to re-adjust your mind. You’ll feel better tomorrow.

      DrB. Tubularsock thinks you may be correct. The Rendon Group must have settled my mind overnight. Tubularsock even assisted sojourner in a new pledge of allegiance and Tubularsock sees red, white, and blue in his breakfast cereal.

      As you know the Rendon Group helped the DOD to move them from “. . . a “positive”, “neutral”, “negative” scale to one of accuracy”. Which has proven so helpful for we Americans.

      Thanks for your comment.

    Hey Tubularsoack, it’s all about the spin on the angle, me thinks.

  7. I can barely comment thanks to all this spinning and spiraling. You guys have made me dizzy as hell with this one! LOL! Also, my ‘angle’ is off! I’m probably off my rocker too!
