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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DRAPE IT IN RED, WHITE, AND BLUE!

Well it is crystal clear that Orange Tweet has sold out to the neocon war machine. And because of that we sure can’t work with the Russians!

Nope! It’s the old fucking Clinton-Bush-Obomber-Zionist-Wahhabi Conspiracy all over again.

This could all be settled if we BOMB ISRAEL FIRST and then SAUDI ARABIA! But can’t do that because that would clear things up and where would we sell our fucking bombs?

No, business is just too good.

Oh, by the way Mr. and Mrs. Merica, send your children to their death to protect OUR NATIONAL INTEREST. Fucking morons ……. drape it in red white and blue!

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!

 

 

 

PRAISING THE SHITTER THAT SHAT

The height of hypocrisy never seems to amaze Tubularsock. There was a time it did but those days are far gone and will never return because we live in never-never-land where all things are upside down and backwards.

Let Tubularsock present two examples for you to consider and just see what YOU think when Tubularsock clears the dust for you. No, it isn’t a problem. Tubularsock uses a high powered Makita 18-volt compact lithium-ion cordless vacuum …… “fast cleaning without the cord”.

Now PLEASE hold your laughter until Tubularsock’s presentation is complete so it doesn’t drown out the facts.

Former U.S. President Step-en-fetch-it Obummer was named the 2017 recipient of The John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award!

The John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award is toted as “. . . the most prestigious award for public servants.”

And one has to do a lot of SHIT to people to be awarded this recognition!

Former U.S. President Step-en-fetch-it Obummer’s surveillance of the American people and his prosecution of whistle-blowers has to be honored, right!

And his indiscriminate drone bombings of Middle Eastern and African people has got to be honored, right!

And who could not honor his legacy of war, military adventurism, and keeping the torture prison at Guantanamo open, right!

And we can’t forget the handout to the Banksters and fucking over Main-street now can we.

Oh and what an honor it is to have the most expensive health care in the world but living shorter lives than other countries to enjoy it.

Yeah, Obummer was being recognized for “his enduring commitment to democratic ideals and elevating the standard of political courage in a new century.” SURE, IN SOME ALTERNATE UNIVERSE! But not in the one real people are living in.

But really, it all fits. Kellyanne Conway would have to walk her “alternate-facts” a long way to out due the FACT that the President who kept the United States in the PERPETUAL-STATE-OF-WAR his entire eight years in office walked off with the Nobel PEACE prize! Go figure.

But really, it all make sense in never-never-land where all things are upside down and backwards.

WHICH LEADS US TO EXAMPLE NUMBER 2

The former President and son of the “The-Silver-Haired-Douchebag Barbara Bush” (George Carlin) has taking up a new painting project.

It is called Portraits of Courage: A Commander in Chief’s Tribute to America’s Warriors!

Not to be confused with the Profile in Courage which John F. Kennedy wrote. Shrub isn’t very title creative.

LET THE HORSE SHIT FLOW ………………………

Shrub painted a mural of 66 single images of physically and/or mentally wounded veterans from all the Armed Forces.

These are the very same physically and/or mentally wounded veterans from all the Armed Forces that he alone shattered by his senseless, immoral, insane and inept wars he lied the nation into in Afghanistan and Iraq!

Besides the group mural he produced a book that also shows the individual portraits along with “upbeat stories” from Shrub about how much he admired their recoveries.

He credits himself with their “recovery” because of the “helpful” time he spent riding bikes and playing golf with them! You know, photo-ops!

Now you can get two editions of this travesty-of-horse-shit!

A $35 hardcover or a $250 “deluxe” cloth-bound edition SIGNED by the little prick himself!

It has been reported that PORTRAITS reached #1 on Amazon’s book list which goes to show that if you own your own Foundation you can make anything happen.

SIDE NOTE: Tubularsock would recommend that if you personally know ANYONE that has this book on their coffee table, politely stand up and punch them in the face. Just sayen’!

Now for you investor types you may be able to get into this WAR CRIMINAL ART early and profit later like Hitler’s Phone selling for $243,000.00 recently. Remember you don’t have to hang these maimed veterans and mental retards Shrub created in real and in painting. No, just box them up like tiny coffins and wait for the market to rise.

The Mural itself is on show at the George W. Bush Center’s Military Service Initiative in Dallas and all the proceeds go to that center to “help veterans”. It would be fun to see how much the Center pays Shrub to speak there.

In an interview Shrub stated that the “greatest honor of the presidency was looking (veterans) in the eye and saluting them as their commander in chief.”

Oh yeah, do you think he ever really just stands in front of a mirror and looks himself in the eye and asks himself just how many hundreds of thousands men, women, and children he is single-handedly responsible for killing and maiming?

You can’t paint yourself to redemption you worthless fuck!

But really, it all make sense in never-never-land where all things are upside down and backwards.

 

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!

PLAIN LUNACY: THE WASTED LIFE OF RYAN OWENS.

Plain lunacy is distinguished from complex lunacy by the fact that one does not need a protractor to figure it out. Remember protractors? Tubularsock has three. One plastic, one metal, and one wood. The wooden one is by far the best to keep Tubularsock “grounded” while working with complex lunacy. But fear not. We aren’t going there today.

Plain lunacy is recognized by a commodity known as “common sense” which in today’s world is in very short supply. And due to that let Tubularsock give you an example.

It is “common sense” that if you stand in quick sand you sink. And yet mankind has conducted wars between one another from the beginning of time sinking deeper and deeper and yet finding the only solution is to conduct another one and another one and another one, ad nauseam.

The thing about “common sense” is it is organic by nature and that may be why it is in such short supply while living within the GMO corporate-industrial-military-security-psyop-complex. Matrix for short!

Now none of this is even new to any of you. Nor to Tubularsock. But it all came crashing back like a nightmarish dream during Orange-Tweet’s “presidential?” speech to Congress.

Much of the PRESS praised Orange-Tweet for SOUNDING so Presidential. Which only means that Orange-Tweet read his speech from a teleprompter and that the speech was written by somebody else with the knowledge of the key and appropriate PLATITUDINAL-BULL-SHIT that is uttered by every other President that has given speeches to the nation.

And a complete and utter moron could give you a synopsis of all that was ludicrous about that speech but Tubularsock will just provide only ONE point that is ALWAYS one of the best tricks out of a BS-magic show.

Parading out the grieving widow! THE HEIGHT OF BULL SHIT MAGNIFICO!

At this point let Tubularsock just say that this entire “show” was really at the expense of Carryn Owens, the bereaving widow who had just lost her husband. For her, the intensity of pain was palpable and very sad.

owenstrump

However it appears in this photo that the VERY BRAVE GENERALS were more “shocked” by her behavior of showing emotion than having any emotion of loss themselves. They’ll go home to their wives and instruct their drivers what time to pick them up in the morning to return to the Pentagon to plan more death and destruction based on existential fear! Ass holes all!

 

generals

The use by Orange Tweet and the Generals of an intense display of the TRUTH OF WAR they, as always, attempt to give us all that total crap about just how BRAVE, COURAGEOUS, SELFLESS, HEROIC WARRIOR dead Owens was and added to that the embarrassing shit about “. . . battling against terrorism and securing our nation.”

WELL NO! Thirty-six year-old Chief Petty Officer William “Ryan” Owens, was mislead. Unfortunately Owens believed that he was serving and protecting his country. As delusional unfortunately that happens to be in this case. In most in truth!

ryan-owens

Tubularsock wonders if Owens EVER even thought what the fuck was he protecting us from while shooting up  Yemen?

No! Owens, according to The Chicago Times, dreamed of becoming a SEAL since he was in high school and enlisted right after high school. The perfect age for stupidity! No thinking there!

Chief Petty Officer William “Ryan” Owens was a dupe, just cannon fodder, and now dead Owens has to be pumped up with empty meaningless adulation so as the next stupid high school student will want to throw his life away as well!

THERE IS NO GLORY IN KILLING OTHER PEOPLE ……….. PERIOD. There is absolutely nothing courageous or brave or selfless or heroic. It is just extrajudicial murder and one who carries it out is just a murderer plain and simple.

As so well stated in The Americanization of Emily, a 1964 movie about WW2, Lt. Cmdr. Charles E. Madison (James Garner) says: “We shall never end wars, Mrs. Barham, by blaming it on the ministers and generals, or warmongering imperialists, or all the other banal bogeys. It’s the rest of us who build statues to those generals and name boulevards after those ministers. The rest of us who make heroes of our dead and shrines of our battlefields. We wear our widow’s weeds like nuns, Mrs. Barham, and perpetuate war by exalting its sacrifices.”

Now there is no question that “Ryan” Owens “bought into” the “serving your country crap”. Tubularsock has no argument with the protection of one’s country. The argument comes when it IS OUR COUNTRY that is the aggressor to other countries.

Afghanistan NEVER attacked the United States!

Iraq NEVER attacked the United States!

Libya NEVER attacked the United States!

Vietnam NEVER attacked the United States!

And by far not the last example, Yemen NEVER attacked the United States!

So just exactly WHO was Owens and the pack of Chicken-Shit-Navy-SEALS murderers protecting? Definitely not you or Tubularsock! Or for that matter any American citizen.

Yemen? American military killing people in Yemen? What the fuck?

DO YOU FEEL SAFER? FUCK NO, WE’RE NOT SAFER!

Wonder why?

Well, it is simple really. Let Tubularsock return to the “common sense” of Plain Lunacy.

Never arm lunatics with guns!

You should remember that there was no such thing as al-Qaeda until the U.S. created them to fight the Russians in Afghanistan back under the Reagan and Carter Administrations.

And even to this day the U.S. government keeps pushing that IT’S THE TERRORISTS, IT’S THE TERRORISTS, IT’S THE TERRORISTS but the U.S. government keeps arming them.

Whether it’s Shrub, Step-En-Fetch-It, or Small-Hands-Orange-Tweet each have continued to provide arms and support to the terrorists.

They all keep repeating that battling against terrorism and securing our nation is our goal sooooooooo,

EXACTLY WHERE IS THE COMMON SENSE LOGIC IN CONTINUING ARMING THEM?

Oh, unless there is another agenda that is not being stated to the American public, an agenda that Chief Petty Officer William “Ryan” Owens and so many others have literally “fallen for”. But rest assured SOMEBODY PROFITS!

And speaking about Americans there was another American citizen killed in this raid in Yemen. And that was 8-year-old Nawar (Nora) who was visiting her mother when the raid took place. She was one of the 24 civilians killed by the American “brave” SEAL murderers.

nawar-nora-awlaki

Of course there is always an answer. US Air Force colonel John Thomas said: “Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula has a horrifying history of hiding women and children within militant operating areas and terrorist camps, and continuously shows a callous disregard for innocent lives. That’s what makes cases like these so especially tragic.”

But here is the problem with all that ……… THEY LIVE THERE!

US Air Force colonel John Thomas doesn’t!

It is like all those 100’s of thousands of civilians that guys like US Air Force colonel John Thomas napalmed in Vietnam. Burning them alive! They were all in there with the Vietcong ….. Remember?

THEY LIVED THERE! THAT WAS THEIR HOME!

It is the fucking brain dead like US Air Force colonel John Thomas that attacked them in THEIR COUNTRY!

That is like saying that all the people that died in the Twin Towers on 9/11 were in those buildings because of the horrifying history of capitalists showing callous disregard for innocent lives.

GIVE TUBULARSOCK A BREAK!

But that isn’t the entire story.
Nawar (Nora), was the 8-year-old daughter of Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical Yemeni-American cleric killed in a targeted U.S. drone strike in Yemen in 2011. A strike ordered by Obummer. Anwar al-Awlaki too was an American citizen born in New Mexico.

anwar-al-awlaki

And Obummer has never commented publicly on the targeted drone strike that accidentally killed Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, a 16-year-old American boy and the son of al Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki in 2011. The teenager, Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, a U.S. citizen who was born in Denver in 1995.

abdulrahman-al-awlaki

So so much for “protecting Americans”!

All this death and destruction was approved over dinner five days after the presidential inauguration by Orange-Tweet and his closest advisers.

Oh don’t worry, Tweet-boy didn’t lose any sleep over it and by using Carryn Owens as a propaganda prop it just showed better on TV! You see the Orange-Tweet could not help but brag that his words “. . . had inspired the hugest, greatest standing ovation ever, so long and loud, it’ll make your head spin. Believe me.”

Tube paint sig

Tube book headingSAVED AGAIN!

It is perfect. Our American “leaders” are out to “protect” us again!

And where do they rush to ban travel from but Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Yemen and Sudan?

All countries, with the exception of Iran, that THE U.S. HAVE BOMBED! And Iran has been advertised for years TO BE BOMBED!

So once again the U.S. Governmental “leaders” send the cavalry in the WRONG DIRECTION. And pump up and puff out their chests like something meaningful has been accomplished!

On 9/11, 15 Saudi Arabian Terrorists, 2 United Arab Emirates Terrorists, 1 Egyptian Terrorist and 1 Lebanese Terrorist attacked New York and killed close to 3000 people.

So did we RETALIATE by bombing the United Arab Emirates or Saudi Arabia?

OR Egypt? Lebanon?

NO!

The United States RETALIATED by attacking AFGHANISTAN and we are still attacking Afghanistan.

And then we took our mighty JUSTICE and started a war with IRAQ!

NOW THAT IS WHAT TUBULARSOCK CALLS LEADERSHIP!

Yep. Our country just HAS TO get the Academy Award THIS YEAR for BEST AT BEING WORSE!

Sure there are a lot of supporting actors that have helped this on its way and Tubularsock would be amiss if he didn’t thank Pathetic George and his sidekick Tortured Cheney. Hey, you live with fucking Lynn for five minutes and you’d be tortured too. But he likes it! Beat me, beat me.

And sure there was known-unknown Donnie, and brain dead Condo, old blue douchebag Barbara who does have to be given some credit for spawning Pathetic George. It is a little known alternate fact that Tubularsock is mean-spiritedly making up on the spot, that Pathetic George was really aborted and was left on the Capitol steps only to found by a wandering-cheney and brought to life.

Oh my how Tubularsock has digressed.

There also was Step-En-Fetch-It-Hope-And-Change-Obummer who lulled the lost back to the possibility of changing the direction of our country only to take a HUGE SHIT on their heads that was so convincing that they all rallied around the Wicked-Bitch-From-The-West-Hillary who promised “MORE OF THE SAME SHIT”.

And just as luck would have it THE RUSSIANS SAVED US!
Well the maimed stream press seems to be promoting a different slant to their alternate-fact news but Tubularsock is going with his own alternate facts.

Which leads us to OUR very own ……….. President Orange Tweeter Feed!

My my my ……….. the child in the oval office.

Oh look, oh look ……… gosh, POTF can sign his name.

trube-trump-crayon

Oh another signing, another crayon.

Oh, oh, hold up your work. It’s so pretty. Good job!

tube-trump-see

The GREAT thing about having America Great Again is that now the DEPLORABLES have someone to believe in.

Now the brain-dead “liberals” had step-en-fetch-it and now the brain-dead deplorables have Orangie-Tweet-Boy. See how GREAT America has become! Just like Leave It To Beaver.

So with supporting actors like those and a 15 BILLION DOLLAR WALL Americans deserve the Academy Award!

Hell, Thelma and Louise isn’t the only movie that can GO OVER THE EDGE!

See you at the bottom.
