WARJÀ VU

Do you ever get that “feeling” that you have seen this before?

Well Tubularsock calls it WARJÀ VU.

It is that “Here we go again moment”.

 George W. Bush promised a humble foreign policy with no nation building:

“If we don’t stop extending our troops all around the world in nation-building missions, then we’re going to have a serious problem coming down the road. And I’m going to prevent that.” (Candidate Bush)

He criticized the Clinton-Gore Administration for being too interventionist.

 

                                      Barack Obama spoke out against the impending war in Iraq in the fall of 2002 and in 2004 questioned the Bush administration’s management of the Iraq War, and highlighted America’s obligations to its soldiers.

 

As Ivo Daalder, a former National Security Council official under President Clinton who later headed up a team advising Obama on nonproliferation issues, put it, “There’s a feeling that this is a guy who’s going to help us transform the way America deals with the world.”

AND YET, Obama pursued similarly imperialistic policies to those of his predecessor, George W. Bush.
In fact, if you are counting Obama out did Bush in bombing and killing!

Bush: Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and Somalia.

Obama: Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, Libya and Syria.

 

“I will never send our finest into battle unless necessary, and I mean absolutely necessary, and will only do so if we have a plan for victory with a capital V,” he thundered. “The world must know that we do not go abroad in search of enemies.” (candidate Trump)

Trump’s view  of the Iraq War BEFORE he was President:

*** March 2007 interview on CNN (“Declare victory and leave”)

*** 2008 interview with British GQ (“First, I’d get out of Iraq right now”)

*** 2011 interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan where Trump said he’d get US troops in Iraq “out real fast.”

Donald Trump promised an America First foreign policy that would shrink the US role on the world stage and spend more money at home than abroad.

 

1. Sending more American troops to Afghanistan.
no timetable for when those troops would come home.

2. Syria, where Trump has deployed sizable numbers of American combat forces and directly attacked the military of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.

3. Iraq, Trump has not only dispatched hundreds of new US troops to the country but has also put them closer to the front lines and given them more freedom to bombard targets from the air.

4. In Yemen, elite US special operations forces are conducting ground assaults while the US wages an increasingly brutal air campaign against

Trump even mused about sending the US military into Venezuela, though he didn’t offer any explanation of why or what their mission would be.

This is the exact opposite of what many of Trump’s core supporters had expected. And same went for Obama and Bush!

And here is the key:

We have never left the neoconservative foreign policy paradigm that the U.S. must dominate the world. And that is where regime change comes into play.

So these continuous wars that we find ourselves in, REGARDLESS OF THE FEELINGS OF THE AMERICAN PUBLIC, are due to a pre-fixed program of American domination.

And no matter which Party or what the President says about being AGAINST WAR, they are not.

Yet the public falls for it time after time.

As Zbigniew Brzezinski expressed, “Most Americans are close to total ignorance about the world. They are ignorant. That is an unhealthy condition in a country in which foreign policy has to be endorsed by the people if it is to be pursued. And it makes it much more difficult for any president to pursue an intelligent policy that does justice to the complexity of the world.”

So the way the ignorant citizen is directed into this false and dangerous foreign policy is by “false-flag” actions such as the Gulf of Tonkin and the 9/11.

Because an external enemy threat has been the tool to keep the citizens in line even when they are opposed to continuous wars.

 

And now ENTER JOHN BOLTON and GINA HASPEL!

John Bolton is so conservative that he, years ago, had fallen off the “right” end of the conservative spectrum into the lunatic fringe.

He believes that a first strike against North Korea and Iran would be acceptable.

He falls in with the Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz crowd that brought us the Iraq War.

BUT BOLTON STILL BELIEVES IT WAS A GOOD IDEA.

Yes, not only delusional but just plain stupid in the dangerous way.

And Trump has appointed him his National Security Advisor.

AND THEN THERE’S GINA!

Trump has appointed her the new Director of the CIA.

She not only condones torture but oversaw a black-site in Thailand for the purpose of torturing prisoners.

And on top of BEING A WAR CRIMINAL for that she also prepared the cable granting permission to destroy tapes with an industrial shredder of the interrogation sessions of terror detainees.

This was done after the CIA had been instructed NOT TO destroy the tapes.

The direction to prepare the cable granting destruction of evidence was given by Jose Rodriguez, director of the CIA’s Counterterrorism Center.

And is the classic case of “just following orders” from Gina.

SO HERE WE COME AROUND AGAIN ……… WAR HAS TO HAPPEN!

And it will.

Which leads us to THE NEXT FALSE FLAG EVENT.

It is necessary to galvanize the American Public into supporting a war or wars they really don’t want.

Wouldn’t it be fun if Tubularsock was WRONG?

Sadly, he’s not. You’ll see.

Just what is it about this constant “forever war” syndrome that we find ourselves in as a country?

Are YOU really that afraid of OTHER?

And just what is it that we don’t understand about people in another country risking their lives to protect their country from aggression?

Wouldn’t YOU protect our country from aggression from a foreign country if they were attacking us?

So just who is this fabled AGGRESSOR?

Well, that’s simple ………… THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. None other!

Now recently we have gone through two Presidential election cycles where the WAR ISSUE was a major factor. And in both cases the winners were Obummer and Orange Tweet both of whom indicated that they wanted to alter the country’s direction away from “foreign wars”.

Oh sure, the American public bought it …….. they always do.

Historically you’ll find that the American public has ALWAYS been against going to war. In fact, in most cases you’ll find that it is true of most populations world wide.

So why is there so much war?


In the first three months of 2017 U.S.-led bombing reached 10,918 bombs and missiles dropped on Syria alone. A country that never, ever posed a threat to the United States.

After 16 years we are still fighting in Afghanistan. A country that never, ever posed a threat to the United States.

We have totally destroyed Iraq but are still fighting there. Another country that never, ever posed a threat to the United States.

Have you noticed a trend here?

Let’s, for the fun of it, jump back to Vietnam for a second. The number of people we killed in Vietnam and the numbers of American that were stupid enough to go to “protect American interests” and die in a complete an utter failure is just shameful.
The arch enemy that was Vietnam “won” that war and remained “communist” and THEN in 2016:  “HANOI — The Obama administration announced Monday that the United States would fully lift a longstanding U.S. embargo on lethal arms sales to Vietnam . . .” (Washington Post 5/23/16)

So all it took was an arms deal to be friends? Think on this. All those people dead and now we are selling arms to Vietnam that will kill more people?

OMG ——The Russians! We have to protect ourselves from those aggressive Russians so we threaten them with economic sanctions, nuclear first strike, we place missiles in Europe pointed at them, we build up American military forces at their boarders AND WE CALL THEM AGGRESSIVE?

Yet, the U.S. makes exceptions to sanctions against Russia by lifting bans on Russia’s sales to us of Russia’s RD-180 rocket engines. “It is worth mentioning that Russia’s RD-180 rocket engines, possessing unparalleled performance US firms have yet to match, will be used to launch payloads into Earth orbit for the US Department of Defense.” (Activist Post 1/7/16)

And, “The U.S. Treasury Department on Thursday eased economic sanctions on Russia, allowing some cyber-security transactions with the Russian Federal Security Service . . .” (USATODAY Feb. 2, 2017)

So the U.S. can agree to trade contracts and cooperation with Russia, BUT WE CAN’T AGREE ON PEACE WITH EACH OTHER?

And what do we agree with the Russians on?

Rockets??? So, where is all this “fear” we are supposed to believe in that Russia is so dangerous?

Cyber-security transactions??? After all that fear of Russians hacking the last election?

 

 

And just check out American oil interests in partnership with Russian firms!

But hell, that’s not all!

Look into JUST the Trump Family contractual agreements with CHINA alone. It will make even your eyes become slanted!

Finally, Tubularsock will save your reading time and just bottom line this for you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

QUAGMIREocracy

You may not have a job, or a house, or health care, or pre-school care, or enough to eat, or any care if you are old because those things are NOT ENTITLEMENTS!

Those things are all examples of YOU sucking off the system!

But there is one thing that is always maintained in this great democratic nation of ours and that is a total-complete-ironclad-guaranteed-over-the-top Foreign Policy of,

Seriously, don’t think for a moment that the United States Military Industrial Complex can not maintain a continued state of QUAGMIRE!

THAT is what they do best. And they have proved it!

Korea

Vietnam

Afghanistan

Iraq

Libra

Syria

And we can all hope with Trump that we can get deeper involved in Syria and Korea which for all practical purposes will have us facing off Russia and China to boot!

Ahh, that American Military just can’t seem to win ANYTHING except body-bags coming home!

Now just why is that?

Well, Tubularsock figured out as a young boy with his friends while playing “WAR” that the enemy was WE!

You see, the boys in the neighborhood would divide up in teams and we would figure out who was going to be the “GOOD GUYS, AMERICA” and the “BAD GUYS, GERMANY AND/OR JAPAN.

Now all this was formulated by the movies of the day and you all know how WAR PROPAGANDA works being as true today as it was in the 1950’s.

But for Tubularsock playing “WAR” was enlightenment because Tubularsock discovered that the “driving force” of the activity was to WIN! There was no good or bad! And most importantly as a “soldier” you were of no importance on either side except to win or die.

It was at that point Tubularsock made up his mind that war was dumb and that he would NEVER join a military.

But to seal that deal Tubularsock did join the Cub Scouts because you got to hang out with your friends and do “neat” things but it didn’t last long and as they started to “recruit” our “den” to join the Boy Scouts Tubularsock had seen enough movies to know about the HJ in Germany and the Great Japan Sincerity Association in Japan. (Remember those news of the world shorts that movie theaters ran before the main features? Tubularsock paid attention!)

Both, in Tubularsock’s mind, were just different renditions of the Boy Scouts. And thus pro-nationalist organizations which prepared youth for war!

So at the ripe old age of 10 Tubularsock decided never to join a group, a military or a war! THE DIE WAS CAST!

PIVOT

Ok, ok ……….

We’re not friends. Step-and-Fetch-It-Obama the out going puppet of the FWRM (fat, white, rich, men) and Tubularsock belong to different clubs.

So when Barack contacted Tubularsock to “take a meeting” with him, well ………

It only meant one thing …… Barack needed a fall guy and Biden couldn’t do it because he may be headed for a post in Killary’s Administration.

tube-obama-not-right

You may not recall but Tubularsock early in Barack’s Administration held the cabinet post of Secretary of the Inferior and was extremely popular.

Don’t recall: News Before It Happens …. Secretary of the Inferior, Missing!

Anyway, the bottom line is that Barack has asked Tubularsock not to bring up the fact that:

Guantanamo is still open for business.

The war in Afghanistan still continues.

The war in Iraq still continues.

The war in Libya still continues.

And Barack has added to that

The war in Syria AND

The war in Yemen AND

Starting in 2014 Barack carried out 674 military missions across Africa. And by
2016, you do the math!

And then add the special ops raids, the drone strikes, the “training missions” and the African Continent is well covered with American killers.

And all this has been accomplished by a Nobel Peace Prize Winner!

WHAT DOES THAT SAY ABOUT THE SWEDES?***

*** Political tactical note: this is called a pivot. A pivot is when one shifts the focus from the point of the discussion to a false narrative. (This was a Tubularsock teaching moment)

COP COLLATERAL DAMAGE

Why is Tubularsock not surprised? It was just a matter of time. And Tubularsock only can see a silver lining in this COPS DEAD DALLAS AFFAIR.

It is part of the Bring The War Home Program and once again it is working.

Somehow my heart doesn’t really go out to the dead cops and their families. Somehow it seems like justice served. And in Dallas, Texas! Could it get more perfect than that?

Now Tubularsock knows others response to Tubularsock’s line of reasoning but look at it.

Really, let’s just call it collateral damage. Isn’t that how we Americans write off all those dead people in other countries that Obama and the boys kill everyday?

Why even get worked up over a few dead cops?

The cops have been slaughtering black people without ANY responsibility for their actions. They have just been murdering them in plain site in front of video cameras and witnesses and the JUSTICE system looks at the videos and takes down the “facts” from the witnesses and proclaims that THE KILLING OF BLACK PEOPLE WAS DONE IN THE LINE OF DUTY. And then that cop is put back on the street to “protect and serve”.

This is done over and over and over throughout the nation to the point that it is clear that if one is not held accountable for their actions then there is no justice.

A large number of cops are ex-military, who when they come home from killing Iraqis and Afghans have a pretty limited range of job skills and so they go into police work.

The problem here is that military and police training are really different but similar. And the intention of the job is totally different. But the infusion of military style equipment has blurred the lines even more. It is clear that that reality hasn’t translated well into domestic policing. So you get cops thinking that they are on patrol in Baghdad rather than Detroit and there lies just one of the problems.

Now we have a Black Man with military training taking “justice” into his own hands and doing what any red blooded American would do by just copying the same outline of “justice” that the police have been handing out.

Sure. It looks different but both are just different sides of the same coin.

JOHNSON

If Micah Johnson had done what he had done in Kabul, Afghanistan rather than in Dallas, Texas he would have gotten a medal! Which may be worth considering when we train and send soldiers off to “selectively” kill people. The “blowback” can be the unintended consequence.

So the same money spent training ex-military cops and ex-military civilians come from the same source. The United States Government!

WE HAVE CREATED A MONSTER OF OUR OWN MAKING.

But the head of the monster comes from a different place.

A major mind-set of OUR MONSTER was created with, of course 9/11. The entire defense department, the entire security apparatus, the entire intelligence bureaucracy did not protect the country from attack yet NO ONE was removed from duty for a complete failure of and dereliction of that duty. Rather many were promoted and some even given medals for a job well done!

Thereby setting the tone from a “leadership” role that people are not responsible for their actions.

tube

 

And then Obama enters and took the position with his “Look Forward and not Back” that SOME PEOPLE were NOT RESPONSIBLE for their illegal actions as in torture, pre-emptive strikes on countries that never attacked us, rendition, and mass murder.

Thereby setting the tone from a “leadership” role that people are not responsible for their actions.

Then as the Banksters stole billions of dollars from the system, Bush and Obama held NO ONE responsible for their actions. In fact, they gave the thieves more money thereby establishing from the “leadership” role that it is alright to swindle, rob and steal.

We have the MIND-SET of the Monster created from the point of view that NO ONE is responsible for their actions and then the Monster was set loose.

The result is simple:

NO ONE is responsible for their actions has become the principle and the reality of the society we call America!

LEADERSHIP IS SETTING BY EXAMPLE …………

However Bush and Obama set by example the WRONG lessons!

And the new crop of “leaders” are simply pathetic! (which may be a step up)

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?
