Tube Heading Fuck You

THE BLIND LEADING THE DUMB!

Tubularsock was just sitting around his top floor corner office of the underground bunker overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA (see BUNKER TOUR) having his typical breakfast of scrambled eggs and magical shrooms with a single shot of Wild Turkey Single Barrel, neat.

And right off the teletype came an AP story all the way from Washington, D.C. You know the Associated Press (AP), correct? The Press that knows who has won the Presidential primary BEFORE the vote is taken! They are really smart over at AP to know shit before it happens so Tubularsock dropped everything except the shrooms and Turkey and proceeded to find out the latest.

Now you may not have known this but the White House has been debating “for months” if they should EXPAND THE U.S. MILITARY’S AUTHORITY TO CONDUCT AIRSTRIKES AGAINST THE TALIBAN in Afghanistan. (A tiny note: This has nothing to do with Obomber’s drone murder activities in the region.)

Well guess what, “There is a broad desire across the Obama administration to give the military greater ability to help the Afghans fight and win the war.”(AP)

This does not mean that the 9,800 U.S. troops in Afghanistan will be involved in direct combat. ( A tiny note: CIA mercenary contractors have never stopped fighting!)

What this means is that U.S. airstrikes against the Taliban when necessary have been approved by Obomber.

Tube Afghan

Now all this is as it is and the most important question seems to never be ask by the maimed-street-press, the military, or the political establishment, so hell, Tubularsock will ask the question!

The United States has spent HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS to train the Afghan Military. BabyBush trained and equipped them. Obomber trained and equipped them.

Yet, the Afghan Taliban win the battles and are just much more resilient than the Afghan Military.

WHY IS THAT?

Now remember the U.S. started the war with Afghanistan in 2001 and now we are half way into 2016 and the U.S. is still at war with Afghanistan.

“The Taliban have tried to take advantage of the inexperience of the Afghan security forces, who until recently were incapable of going on the offensive, according to U.S. military officials.” (AP)

FIFTEEN YEARS OF TRAINING AND SUPPORTING and this is the outcome. And the White House has given permission to escalate this total failure?

Stop and think about this. The Taliban are Afghans, The Afghan Military are Afghans, so it appears to Tubularsock that one group of Afghans have a will to win and the other group of Afghans DON’T!

WHY IS THAT?

THAT IS THE FUNDAMENTAL QUESTION!

And sending in more bombs or drones or the U.S. military will not change ANYTHING except create more resolve with the Afghan’s who want to win, The Taliban. THAT IS THE REALITY.

The United States Military were losers in Vietnam and now in Afghanistan!

Let us all go to our dictionaries and read the definition of

    I’ve been following some of the war machines stocks and both LMT (Lockheed Martin) has risen some $4.00 in the past week and NOC (Northrup Grumman) has risen $5.00. That tells me a lot. According to DW radio the US is planning to beef up its presence in Poland through NATO.

    “WHY IS THAT?”

    Well maybe it is as you suggest: because they are “all” Afghans except for the tiny group of compradors who delusively think that “all” the Afghans pretending to be in league with them are actually in league with them. Maybe not. I don’t know.

    One thing I do know, however, in case any of you thought that Afghans were ungrateful recipients of American good will, “all” Afghans sincerely thank America for all the fancy dancy weaponry America is sending over to them.

    Now it is true, “all” Afghans do find America’s way of delivering their particular brand of democratizing foreign aid as being a tad odd of late ( “of late,” meaning post-socialist Afghan era deliveries), what with all the American postal workers dressed in military fatigues, charged with the task of delivering the glitzy democratic hardware and munitions, insisting on both gratuitously killing and being gratuitously killed before finally handing over the aid.

    But they just put that oddity down to what must be an obvious if backward cultural difference between themselves and overly rambunctious poppy-opiate loving and addled Americans.

    No, you can’t accuse Afghans of being ingrates, not rightly, and not that you did, Tubes.

    (Shrooms and Turkey . . .? Plucked or unplucked Turkey? I still can’t quite wrap my head around that one. Maybe after a shroom or two . . .)

      You are correct Norm, as usual. Those Afghans are a happy lot. And the poppies just love all the care and protection from America.

      Just a word of advice from Tubularsock. After about three shots of Wild Turkey Single Barrel, neat you’ll be pretty “plucked” if that clears any of this up for you.

      Oh sure, add a shroom or two and you’ll even fly like a Turkey. Say “high” to Castaneda for me, Oh Lay!

        No apology necessary. I’m always frothing at the mouth. So much so that I was once subjected to a course of rabies immune globulin, I now forget how many shots over the course of how many weeks. The first session was a real pain in the ass, quite literally. It had to have involved a half dozen to a dozen shots. Every time the nurse pulled out a needle, I’d go to get up, and she would ‘tut tut’ me back into position for more. Finally the last shot of the treatment was injected some weeks later, but it had all been for naught. For the frothing continues pretty much unabated. Every day, I have at least one attack, and sometimes the froth dribbles from dawn to dusk. So please! In my presence, there is no shame in wearing even the most rabid of cynicisms on your sleeve . . .

        “cynically”, sojourner? Tubularsock took it for regular everyday awareness. So frothing at the mouth isn’t “normal” after reading the news? Damn! Tubularsock learns something new everyday. Oh, just wipe the screen off with a non-abrasive cloth. Another tidy cleaning tip from Tubularsock Home Services.

        Oh shit! sojourner has it on his sleeve too!

        Norm, just another reminder ……… one shot of Wild Turkey Single Barrel in the morning and one hit of Afghani Gold and ……….. dudeeee what rabies.

        Oh, Dr. Tube says: stay away from needles, you just don’t know where they’ve been!

        Yes indeed, what would a day be without me being “normal”.

        I love the smell of “normal” in the morning… it smells like victory!
