OPTICAL DELUSION

 

Well. Are you paying attention yet?

Buydone’s First Attack as our protector and chief was to bomb Syria.

And you thought Russia and China were sitting at our borders ready to pounce.

NOPE. It’s Syria.

It was self defense. You are safe now. Feel better?

You see, Iran-backed militias are believed responsible for a Feb. 15 rocket attack in Iraq that killed a U.S. military contractor and wounded a U.S. service member.

Now you could say, “Wow, we’re still in Iraq? Haven’t we devastated Iraq completely yet?”

Well no we haven’t!

You see after Saudi Arabia attacked us on 9/11 we immediately invaded Afghanistan only to discover according to Donald Rumsfeld that, “. . . there aren’t any good targets in Afghanistan. And there are lots of good targets in Iraq”.
So we started a war in Iraq in order that we could lose two wars together. Afghanistan and Iraq. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED?

Now we keep trying to start a war with IRAN but to date Iran just keeps out smarting us.
That and they have nuclear arms.

AND WE’VE DONE IT NOW!

In this last election all Tubularsock heard from so many is that we had to get rid of the Orange Dump and elect Slow Buydone so we all could GET BACK TO NORMAL!

And we’ve done it. No health care, no jobs, no fair minimum wage, AND NEVER ENDING WARS.

Congratulations America, WE’RE BACK!

So we have taken two F-15 fighter jets which cost $43.1 million each to build and they shot off seven precision guided missiles at a cost of $115,000.00 each and each F-15 cost $41,921.00 per hour in fuel not to even mention the cost of all the support necessary to conduct the mission which easily falls into the millions.

And we killed 17 people.

$86,200,000 plane cost
$805,000 missile cost
$125,763 fuel cost 1.5 hr flight time x 2

$87,130,763.00 divided by 17 = $5,125,339.00

And you know the funniest part?
NOT ONE MEMBER OF CONGRESS SAID, “Where will the money come from?”
A dead Syrian is worth more than an American citizen ……. very strange priorities, wouldn’t you say?

    Strange priorities but increasingly so, very American, wouldn’t you say? The ultimate goal is to “make money” come what may and the “making of money” is that great illusion forever perpetrated upon the sleeping sheeple since the only possible way to “make money” is too steal the livelihood from the rank and file beginning always with its poorest members. It must be kept in mind, of course, that the poorest members make the best gamblers and are the ones most likely to support the illusion. Knowing that aspect of human history makes it easy to launch a war, any war, anywhere, and the game goes on even if it is also known that it comes of necessity with a violent termination… eventually or eventually! That final lesson of history no one understands so the game can be played ever and anon.

  3. In my experience, military aggression is always inversely correlated with the health of the economy. What I worry about is who gets custody of the nukes if the states split apart.

  4. Once again, the US shoots itself in the foot and blames someone else (rather, blames all of its many enemies).

    Is the structure collapsing yet?

    Here’s the solution since we have been in Iraq & Afghanistan for so long we ought to attack our remaining forces there. Then we won’t have critics shout we withdrew in cowardice because there will be nothing left to withdraw. If this doesn’t make much sense then neither does military intervention in other countries.
