MATING RITUALS & NORTH KOREA

Tubularsock has been studying mating dance rituals to develop Tubularsock’s NEW THEORY ON AMERICAN FOREIGN POLICY.

For one reason it is just a “click-bate” technique to trick people into reading about American “relations” with North Korea. Yes, there is a lot of fucking around!

Have you ever wonder why North Korea ALWAYS seems to want to provoke it’s neighbors by sending off missiles into the, ahhh ocean?

Now at first it may seem odd Tubularsock admits. But it really isn’t when you look at the REGULAR SCHEDULED EVENT. It’s springtime again.

Every spring North Korea’s neighbors (South Korea and Japan) along with our very own antagonist, the United States join together to play WAR GAMES off the coast of North Korea ……… Every fucking spring!

And when your neighbors tend to run their bombers and their battleships and their missile launchers up and down your coast with a “play-like” attack scenario, well it just may APPEAR aggressive. Don’t you think?

But somehow ALL the news outlets lead with stories like NORTH KOREA THREATEN NEIGHBORS WITH RENEWED MISSILE LAUNCH. Well, no shit Dick Tracy!

Or better yet, NBC banners, “North Korea Threatens U.S. With Nuclear Strike Over War Games!”

And of course Arms Sales To The Region increase and so does the rhetoric of just how “CRAZY” Kim Jong Un happens to be to “threaten” his neighbors. And it is left that HE’S the “crazy-one”!

YAWN ……………..

A different side of the same coin is all that American military buildup along the boarder between Poland and Russia and then promoting the idea that Russia is so aggressive!

SAY WHAT?

And IRAN

And SYRIA

AND THE BEAT GOES ON.

The United States has 735 (2005) known military bases around the globe but this number fluctuates a great deal. The number changes by the U.S. military changing the definition of what constitutes a “military base”. And the presence of “military personal” has different definitions at different times such as using “Special Operations” and other forces.

Those special categories are almost certainly operating from undisclosed locations which the size is unknown.

And the “drone operations” have a variety of “bases” some unknown.

So it is a numbers game but there is no question that the U.S. has far more military bases outside its boarders than any other country in the world by a factor of 33 and a third!

One just might interpret that as a bit “aggressive” and the end result is a lot of animosity toward the U.S. even from it’s “allies”.

It is an infrastructure for war but our propaganda is such that we are a “peace loving nation” with the caveat that you “believe it or we’ll kill you”!

It really should be obvious by even the brain dead that all this shit is made up! It only exists if the United States goes out and “kicks the dog” so to speak.

And in order to insure Arm Sales we’ll poke anybody!

Oh, and you thought we were doing it to protect ourselves and bring democracy to the peoples of the world.

SURE YOU DID!

There is nothing like a well thought out plan when you are dealing with people of the world that don’t tend to have an appreciation of the nuance of the United States’ process of bombing the fuck out of their respective countries and removing their leaders and establishing LAW & ORDER American Style.

Most likely these people just don’t speak English!

And the conclusion from the American political front and the American freeless press hence therefore the American brain-dead public —- IT’S THE RUSSIANS!

Now there is a kind-of-a-rule for people with sense that if you climb over an 8′ chain-link fence and go over and kick the pitbull that there will be ensuring problems.

No really, it doesn’t take a Philadelphia-lawyer to figure this out!

And yet, somehow escalation is “blowing in the wind”!

It’s All For A Gas Line, Stupid!

News from TTOS (The Tubularsock Observation Satellite) which Tubularsock purchased from Radio Shack has just reported back from “somewhere over Syria” that the Russians have increased their presence in that area.

Now of course this move is for humanitarian purposes to attack ISIS just like the U.S., Turkey, and the Saudis. Wow, that ISIS must be some formidable force!

Side note: Russia is the only country out of the four that hasn’t financially assisted and provided guns, bombs, supplies and training to ISIS ………. Stop and think about this …. no really, think about this! Does that seem a little counter productive? So why is that?

The Assad Government is reaching a tipping point due to fighting a three front war against forces that want to overthrow the Syrian government. And Russia has substantially attempted to support Assad but from a distance.

The facts on the ground have shifted forcing Russia to enter the conflict directly. And directly meaning sending in Russian jets, attack helicopters and pilots and the Russian military.

The U.S. response to the Russian move being voiced by Josh Earnest (Obummer’s PR man) stated, “Any {Russian} military support to the Assad regime for any purpose, whether it’s in the form of military personnel, aircraft supplies, weapons, or funding, is both destabilising and counterproductive.”

Of course no one in the White House Press Pool ask the obvious question,“destabilising and counterproductive.” for whom?

You see, the bottom line is really simple. As long as the U.S. can keep this area of the world destabilized then the land rights to the most important gas pipeline in decades can be blocked from Russia.

The Wall Street Journal in July 2011 reported that a new Middle East pipeline, changing the geopolitical complexion of the region had been agreed upon between Iran, Iraq, and Syria. It was a $10 Billion Gas-Pipeline Deal!

And with Russia acting as shipper and liaison with its established European energy market via its energy giants, Gazprom and Rosneft, Russia’s role as the EU’s leading natural gas and oil supplier would be enhanced by the Syrian pipeline.

So what you have to eliminate from your mind is that the United States, the prime supplier of weapons and support to the “moderate-terrorists” as well as ISIS, is NOT doing all this to HELP THE SYRIAN PEOPLE OBTAIN DEMOCRACY by replacing Assad.

Déjà vu

Do you recall, the importance of Déjà vu in the Matrix?

Well let Tubularsock remind you.

In the Matrix Déjà vu meant that there was a shift in the Matrix and one needed to heed that change because it meant DANGER!

Well some things just don’t die ……. they can’t even fuck themselves to death though retired Army general and former CIA Director David Petraeus certainly attempted that with his biographer and lover Paula Broadwell!

And that “retired” preface doesn’t explain his role in giving classified documents to Paula. But rather than being court martialed and sent to prison, you know, like Chelsea Manning. No, David got his full retirement and now is still giving the Obummer Administration advice on defeating ISIS!

Petraeus is pushing for the Administration to consider using so-called moderate members of al Qaeda’s Nusra Front to fight ISIS in Syria.

Now Tubularsock has mentioned this before but hey …… it all repeats itself.

What the fuck is a MODERATE TERRORIST? They only cut off one leg and one arm?

Gee, Tubularsock really hates to bring this up David but back in 2007 when the surge failed al Qaeda in Iraq, which the U.S. trained and provided weapons, became ISIS!

THE QUESTION BECOMES … IS PETRAEUS COMPLETELY NUTS?

Or was he so settled into Paula’s “bush” during the Bush Years that he missed the surge failing?

Tube & Petraeus dejs vu

Now lets get this straight. The al Qaeda that the Government blamed for 9/11 is now going to be on “our side”? Well Tubularsock guesses that the logic is as sound as Saudi Arabia who helped fund 9/11 still is our “trusted ally”. You know, anything can work if you keep your eyes closed!

But Tubularsock has a far better plan and one that would work.

How about the U.S. start to back the Assad Government in Syria because they have shown the ability to stay the course. That way we become friends with Iran and Russia and bomb the fuck out of the Saudis and take their oil which is “our” anyway.

Oh foreign policy, so easy if you are “Tubularsock-clear”.

THE CHICKEN OR THE EGG: a bin Laden story.

Now everyone knows when it comes to fowl stories Tubularsock is on top of his game. Some even go as far as to say that Tubularsock is for the birds. Whatever!

Tubularsock just loves a good story and as luck would have it it is, THE SAME OLD STORY.

tube-bin

So let’s start at the beginning.

Mohammed bin Laden and his tenth wife Hamida al-Attas fucked and had little Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden.(an interesting fun fact is that Bin Laden’s name was as long as his 6’ 4” body when he became an adult. Could that have been some kind of sign?)

Osama’s dad had 58 children from 22 wives but as Sharia Law requires he only had four wives at a time. Damn rules!

Now like any good Moslem dad Mohammed divorced Hamida soon after Osama was born. ( Which may or may not tell us something about what Bin Laden was like as a baby.)

And Bin Laden’s mother then married a man named Muhammad al-Attas, who worked at the bin Laden company. (Sure, Tubularsock wonders just how many of the 22 wives ended up with bin Laden company employees. Just one big happy family. Just imagine the Christmas party, oops.)

Ok. Let’s fast forward ……… is this fun or what?

There is enough agreement that Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden was born. In fact Tubularsock has not seen any documentation to date to question that this did not occur.

The problem? How did, when did, and who did die and was it bin Laden at all. There’s the rub!

So what is clear is bin Laden was born from there on, a story but “facts” ….. NOT SO MUCH!

It has been reported that Osama was 6’4” or maybe 6’6” tall. Or maybe less. It occurred to Tubularsock that math and measurement was an early achievement of the Arab World but no one even thought about getting out a measuring rod?

Remember The Navy Seals AFTER THE SUPPOSED KILLING of Bin in his bedroom laid down beside his crumpled bloody body to judge how tall he was ….. wow, those Navy Seals are kinky fuckers and none-too bright.

With all the equipment that they carry no one thought a measuring tape could be handy? Very poor planning if you ask Tubularsock. (you may have noticed no one has asked Tubularsock)

And after the unarmed old man in his bathrobe is blown apart by massive gun fire THEN they start to wonder if it was Bin or not? (side note to self: don’t hang out with Navy Seal bat-shit-nut cases)

In terms of personality, bin Laden was described as a soft-spoken, mild mannered, left handed man who used a cane.

Because Bin never exhibited any Fred Astaire moves it was assumed the cane was for health reasons. His bodyguard CONTENDED Soviet chemical weapons were to blame for his malady but reporters SPECULATED that kidney disease was the cause.

The CIA BELIEVED that bin Laden had Marfan syndrome or kidney disease.(Wright, Lawrence. The Looming Towern. New York: Vintage, 2006.)

The CIA THOUGHT that the possibility of kidney disease was credible. They concluded that bin Laden did not need dialysis, but does suffer from kidney stones.(Robert Windrem. “CIA is looking for a few good doctors.” NBC News, Dec. 29, 2004.)

On July 1, 2002, Time Magazine reported “. . . that physicians who analyzed photos of bin Laden determined that he PROBABLY suffers from secondary osteoporosis, which is often related to diabetes and kidney trouble”. (“Bin Laden Alive as of Late December”, Reuters; Sun Jun 30, 2002.)

Are you getting the picture? CONTENDED, SPECULATED, BELIEVED, THOUGHT, PROBABLY these are descriptive words for we don’t know shit about bin Laden’s true health condition.

Tube science rockets

Now David Ray Griffin, who Tubularsock has very high regard for concluded that Osama bin Laden died in late 2001 or 2002. But when you look closely at Griffin’s claims his evidence is based on rather weak information, if you ask Tubularsock. (you may have noticed no one has asked Tubularsock)

David Ray Griffin states the following five things from his article “Osama Bin Laden: Dead or Alive?” to show that Bin Laden is dead:

“1. The CIA up until mid-December 13, 2001, had regularly been intercepting messages between bin Laden and his people. At that time, however, the messages suddenly stopped, and the CIA has never again intercepted a message. (maybe he figured out he was being listened to?)

 2. On December 26, 2001, a leading Pakistani newspaper published a story reporting that bin Laden had died in mid-December. ( oh! a leading Pakistani newspaper, then it must be true)

 3. Osama bin Laden had kidney disease. He had been treated for it in the American  Hospital in Dubai in July 2001, at which time he REPORTEDLY ordered two dialysis machines to take home. (see below)

 4. In July of 2002, CNN reported that bin Laden’s bodyguards had been captured in February of that year, adding: “Sources believe that if the bodyguards were captured away from bin Laden, it is likely the most-wanted man in the world is dead.” (maybe they were on break)

 5. The United States has since 2001 offered a $25 million reward for any information leading to the capture or killing of bin Laden. But this reward offer has produced no such information.” (until now)

But when you look at all five of these examples and follow them out they are all based on conjecture NOT HARD FACTS. Even Number 3, the Dubai hospital information can be called into question if you look at it.

The one reported “fact” that bin Laden was in the American Hospital in Dubai in July 2001 and according to CBS News “. . . was being given kidney dialysis treatment in a hospital in Pakistan . . . the night before the 9/11 attacks” was first reported by the French newspaper Le Figaro.

The story was drawn from a leak from French intelligence (according to The Guardian) and not only provided bin Laden’s hospital visit but also the story that the CIA Bureau Chief “. . . was seen in the lift, on his way to see Bin Laden, and later, it is alleged, boasted to friends about his contact. He was recalled to Washington soon afterwards”.

The hospital “emphatically” denied that bin Laden was admitted to the hospital and the CIA denied that their bureau chief visited. Oh gosh, just who can one believe?

And then there is the kidney dialysis treatment itself.

CNN reporting on Pakistan’s president, Gen. Pervez Musharraf, speculation that bin Laden had likely died of kidney failure was then supported by CNN’s medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta who proceeded to evaluate A VIDEO with some earlier photos of bin Laden and concluded “. . . that he appeared to be in the last stages of kidney failure”.

From this Tubularsock would not go on record that bin Laden died in 2001 or in 2014 either. But what is clear is that whatever story the United States Government comes up with will be and is A LIE. That is the only FACT Tubularsock can draw from all of this bullshit.

Oh, but there’s more ……. wouldn’t you know.

According to Salon, in the article, The Many Deaths of Osama bin Laden on May 1, 2011 Justin Elliott writes:

“The false reports of Osama bin Laden’s death began almost immediately after Sept. 11, 2001, and persisted at a rate of at least once or twice a year, every year. The reports — generated by (usually anonymous) statements by American officials and a dizzying array of foreign sources — often generated international headlines.

Here’s a sampling:

July, 2002 FBI counterterrorism chief Dale Watson tells a law enforcement conference of bin Laden: “I personally think he is probably not with us anymore, but I have no evidence to support that.”

August,2002 Popular conspiracy-mongering radio host Alex Jones announces, citing high-level Bush administration sources, “that bin Laden died of natural causes and that his family has given the body to the CIA.” Jones added, “they’re gonna roll him out right before the election, he’s on ice right now.”

May, 2003 French military analyst announces that bin Laden was killed in an American air raid in Tora Bora shortly after the invasion of Afghanistan in 2001.

February, 2004 Iranian Radio reports that bin Laden was captured in the Afghan-Pakistan border area “a long time ago” — but the official announcement was delayed because “Bush is intending to use it for propaganda maneuvering in the presidential election.”

April, 2002 The Israeli press picks up an account from a radical Muslim London newspaper: “We now report that the al-Qaeda organization has announced the death of Osama Bin Laden.”

September, 2006 French intel document says that Saudis believe bin Laden had died of typhoid in Pakistan.

June, 2008 Citing two unnamed officials, Time magazine reports that a recent CIA study has concluded bin Laden has long-term kidney disease and “may only have months to live.”

April, 2009 Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari tells the media that his country’s intel services “obviously feel that [bin Laden] does not exist anymore”’

But even here Justin Elliott shows bias by starting off his report with “The false reports of Osama bin Laden’s death . . .”

An interesting link that Tubularsock found in these travels to find bin Laden is:

http://www.newsmine.org/content.php?ol=9-11/binladen/death/fbi-%20says-bin-laden-probably-dead.txt

You will discover here that Osama bin Laden has spent more time dead than living. Which in itself is an amazing feat for this amazing man.

So all the attack toward Seymour Hersh and his article on the re-death of bin Laden on May 11, 2011 is just another bin Laden death. The only thing it lacks is the Dairy Queen sightings with Elvis.

But it could be the true death of bin Laden or it could just as easily NOT be his final death.

So it might be helpful for a quick “fill in the blanks” historically for you and this little video made by Tubularsock in 2007 may help you recall what all this Afghanistan business was all about.

Paul/McCain: Our Mac Daddies

Now it has been one of those days for Tubularsock so spending some time on the under ground bunker’s deck to bag some rays was in order. Surf’s up sort of speak. (That’s California talk.) And as Tubularsock was pursuing the perfect tan his mind wandered to the Republican’s letter to Iran. Wouldn’t you know.

Rand Paul says he signed the Republican Iran Letter to strengthen Obama’s hand in negotiating with Iran. John McCain says he signed the letter because he signs lots of letters. Now some have called this “back peddling” but for Tubularsock it seems Republicans don’t have much ability to peddle forward so it may be a little generous to believe they could peddle backwards. Just sayen’.

But rather than condemn both Senators as simple-minded-dumb-shits Tubularsock would like to explain why these two men did sign this letter.

For Rand it is pretty simple, like his father he has always been a confused person and that is because he has had to live with having two first names as his name. Rand and Paul as a name has just confused his identity with himself. And thus his entire life has been in search of his last name. Rather sad, if you ask Tubularsock.

And then there is old-forget-me-not ahhh ………. McCain.

Albino McCain … the white man’s burden.

But really, it’s all in the name. Cain …… need Tubularsock say more?

Oh, Tubularsock is already on a roll anyway so sure ……

The “Mc” part of McCain is an attempt to camouflage the Cain part of McCain.

Cain, if you recall your Bible or your Quran, had a brother Abel and they were Adam and Eve’s first sons. From there like all the other shit in the Bible and the Quran the story gets as fucked up as it could be with brothers and sisters fucking each other and God getting all pushed out of shape and Cain ending up killing Abel.

No really, it’s all a forerunner to “brotherly love”.

Tube Cain

And then there is the Cain and the Devil connection by some interpretations and that is where Tubularsock is going with this entire matter.

There is the MARK of Cain and that is where John comes in when McCain said he signed the Republican Iran Letter because he signs “lots of letters”.

Or another way to look at this is Cain camouflage as McCain places “HIS MARK”.

Now that Tubularsock has taken your mind and circled the block you may be asking yourself isn’t the fact that all 47 Senators that signed the Republican Iran Letter really are only simple-minded-dumb-shits?

YES!

Tubularsock compliments you for your insight.
