POPPY MADNESS?

Since 2002 the United States has spent $8.6 billion just for the “war” against Poppies in Afghanistan and this year (2017) poppy production is UP, UP, UP! Another great job accomplished by good ol’ America!

 

 

And the stated reason is that the Taliban, which banned poppy cultivation when it ruled Afghanistan, (you know BEFORE we attacked them and started this ENDLESS war) is now involved in running its own factories, refining the lucrative crop into morphine and heroin for exporting abroad. Mostly to Europe and Canada.

Most American heroin comes from those bad-hombres’ in Mexico!

And much like in Vietnam, the CIA is up to their chinny-chin-chins in running drugs as usual. Tubularsock might as well mention the big banks that launder the money too, so as not to leave anyone out.

Ok, just to be complete the picture, many members within the entire “democratic” Afghan government find a way to get a cut as well. Isn’t that what democracy is all about?

You see it is a Narco-state after all!

 

Afghan farmers are paid about $163 for a kilo (a little over 2 pounds) of the black sap from raw opium. Once refined the price is about $3500. But by the time it is shipped to Europe it wholesales for $45,000!

According to the United Nations in 2016, Afghanistan, which produces 80 percent of the world’s opium, made around 4,800 tonnes of the drug bringing in revenues of three billion dollars.

 

NOW DO NOT WORRY!

The U.S. has worked diligently to coerce local poppy farmers to shift their crop from poppy cultivation to “legal” alternatives such as wheat, barley, mustard and melons.

The result was that those “legal” crops are more difficult and expensive to successfully cultivate and yield much less at market than did their previous illicit poppy plants.

As one farmer put it, “If we plant two bags of wheat, then we’ll have just enough money to buy the seeds to plant another two bags of wheat. […] We’re going backwards. Of course we’re angry at the government.” (Common Sense For Drug Policy 9/6/17)

Of course, as would be predicted, those areas that were driven from poppy production in turn are the same areas where terrorism activity increased.

Surprised? Push people to the wall and you get a response.

All in all, the U.S., lost the Vietnam War, and has LOST the war in Afghanistan. And yet Orange Tweet Trump just like Step-en-fetch-it Obummer before him has entered deeper into the quagmire.

And all that leads to this future conversation: “Mommy why did daddy die in the war? Oh honey, like I’ve told you before, to protect the Opium Trade.”

So now you understand why the poppy is used as a symbol on “Memorial Day”!

AND THE JOKE’S ON US!

When Orange Tweet directed that missile attack on the Syrian air base in response to the Syrian government’s use of chemical weaponry, without absolutely any proof, Secretary of State Rex went all bat shit with the bull shit.

Tubularsock often wonders if ANY of these political hacks, Democraps or Republican’ts ever really listen to themselves.

In this case, Rex explains exactly why the U.S. got what it deserved on 9/11.

 

THE MORAL HYPOCRISY OF THIS COUNTRY NEVER SURPRISES TUBULARSOCK BECAUSE IT STARTED WAY BACK IN 1776. AND THE LIE CONTINUES.

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

KOREAN BARBECUE?

 

What a wonderful world. No really! Tubularsock wakes up every morning and with strong coffee in his cup walks out onto his underground deck adjacent to Tubularsock’s top floor corner office in his underground bunker overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland CA. and settles down to the insane news cycle once again. (see Bunker Tour)

What a grand view!

Have you noticed that recently the cops aren’t executing vast numbers of Black citizens on the streets of our grand nation? Tubularsock figures that the fucking cops have seen the light and now with Small Handed Orange Boy as President we all have “overcome” and given “peace a chance”.

And damn, our Muslim citizens are having a reprieve and EVEN THE JEWS are having a respite from having their cemeteries desecrated. Like dead Jews really give a shit!
But none the less it is all clear!

And “for fucking sake” even ISIS, you know, our boys are doing just fine. The U.S. is pumping them with armaments and chemical weapons “hidden” through Saudi and Turkish connections. All’s good!

Oh sure Assad is bad and we need to send 59 missiles at him with only half hitting their target. You only come to realize we missed when you heard from Orange Boy’s mouth that ALL OF OUR MISSILES HIT THE TARGET! A dead give away!

EXCEPT FOR THE ONES THAT KEPT THE AIRBASE FROM OPERATING THE NEXT DAY!

But forget all that!

What is important is not even the RUSSIANS! We are almost past that.

Now what you are being told is to be fearful of is NORTH KOREA!

Are you scared yet?

The country that HAS NO LIGHTS as viewed from satellite vision.

The country that sends off rockets that fail and fall into the sea.

The country that is run by a REAL “yellow” skinned Asian boy child similar to the United States “orange” skinned boy child!

THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE TOLD TO FEAR!

North Korea ……………………. give Tubularsock a break. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!

All Tubularsock can figure is that it must be a very fucking slow news day!

But here’s a hint ………….

If you deliberately poke a hornet’s nest ……………

What is the OBVIOUS response?

SAVING YOU SYRIAN TIME

Tubularsock has spent HIS TIME reading EVERYTHING about Syria and following EVERY STEP Rex Tillerson, our new Secretary of State, has taken with the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

And Tubularsock has done this as a favor to YOU!

As an American citizen YOU don’t really have the time to actually dig around in the GREATER-UNDRAINED-SWAMP, so Tubularsock has done it for you.

So …….. if you can get off your insane cell phone and tuck your tweets aside fold up your Reddit, bend and stuff your snapchat and file your Facebook profile for just a second Tubularsock will BOTTOM-LINE it all for you!

The U.S. and Russia have met to discuss Syria. And all YOU have to do is LOOK at Rex’s and Serg’s connection, their sincere eye contact, their heartfelt camaraderie. IT TELLS IT ALL.

ANY QUESTIONS?

SAVE THE SYRIAN CHILDREN!

For Fuck Sake, Tubularsock left the front door open in his top floor corner office in his underground bunker overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA (see Bunker Tour) and all the sarin gas news drifted in.

So really, without Tubularsock having to go searching for WHAT HAPPENED in Syria the information fell right on Tubularsock’s top floor corner office underground bunker desk!

Which only goes to show you that the ancient sage’s comment, “if you stand in the same place long enough the truth will come to YOU!” is so true.

So lets begin:

First the Russians have reported that there is a chance that an arms warehouse may have been bombed by the Syrian Air Force and exposed chemicals that the “rebel” forces use to make bombs.

Now before your doubting mind takes off remember that it was the Russians that got the Assad Government to destroy their chemical weapons back in 2013 and Syria has been monitored by the U.N. ever since.

So the Assad Government doesn’t possess chemical weapons.

BUT the rebel terrorists (our guys) do have stock piles of chemicals to make chemical weapons that WE (GOOD OL’ AMERICA) sold to them. AND the CIA also trained these mercenaries on how to handle and use them.

The chemicals came by way of Turkey (our ally) and according to Seymour Hersh, it was Killary that approved sending Libya’s sarin gas to the Syrian Rebels! And that is in part what the entire Benghazi mess was all about. Stevens, the ambassador that got himself killed, was a gun runner for the U.S. and the American Embassy was a CIA front.

And when you get down into all this, Killery approved a plan to use the sarin gas and blame Assad as a pretext for the West going in and bombing the fuck out of Syria to SAVE THE CHILDREN!

Truly, Tubularsock couldn’t make this shit up if he wanted to!

So with that information, just why did Trump bomb Syria?

And more than you’d like to think, hand size has a lot to do with it!

And also before we bombed Syria the U.S. warned the Russians that we were bombing the airfield so as not to create an “incident” with the Russians. Of course, the Russians warned the Syrian forces and all is good!

Interesting that a reconnaissance photo that Tubularsock was viewing from the Tubularsock Spy O’Camera shows the bombed out base BUT TWO THING are clear.

ONE: There are no airplanes on the field.

And TWO: The buildings were bombed BUT the air field is fully operational.

So, roll in a couple portable trailers and the air base is functional again.

And THAT, cost the American taxpayer 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles ……. $1.59 million (2014 price) each, for a total of $93,810,000.00 for the missiles ONLY. Care to add up the rest like the ships at sea and the support teams and the cost of the dinner at Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s private gulf club, which between bites of New York steak Trump called for the bombing escapade.

Pretty cheap if you ask Tubularsock! And you can see that the cost to the American taxpayer of $60 million on Mar-a-Lago trips for Trump in just his first year in office is really a savings in comparison.

But we can’t, as a nation, spare a dime for preschool education from the free loading public!

Hey, it all has to go to SAVE THE SYRIAN CHILDREN!

TRUMP’S VagCHINA DIALOGUE

Now here is something scary for you. Donald El Orange is having a meet-up with China’s President Xi Jinping at Mar a Lago.

Funny how everything sounds “foreign” in that sentence to Tubularsock’s American ears.

They will be talking about trade policy.

Well, not El Orange. He doesn’t even know how to hold a chop stick let alone how many container cargo shipping containers it takes to ship Chinese chop sticks to our shores.

So he’s not much good except with positive or negative platitudes.

And THERE ARE NO others in this current administration that knows ANYTHING about China.

“But without a competent and proven Asia specialist team in place, the fog of uncertainty will only thicken over the Trump administration’s commitment to and understanding of the region.” Heydarian & Crispin, Asian Times 4/6/17

Now there are some guys that have been mentioned to take on the Asian “portfolio” like Jonathan Galaviz, a business consultant and frequent commentator on the gaming and casino industries in Asia may be picked to a top Asia-oriented State Department post.

And who doesn’t need a specialist in “gaming and casino” skills when dealing with China!

“Trump’s inability to assemble a team of senior expert officials to direct the Pentagon, State Department and National Security Council (NSC) policies toward Asia is one of several vacuums . . . to emerge in his two-and-a-half-month old administration. Critics say the vacuum has resulted in wild lurches in policy and pronouncements, and sewn confusion with allies and adversaries alike.” Heydarian & Crispin, Asian Times 4/6/17

So far Donald’s Asia Policy seems to have been threats of potential trade actions against various Asian nations, including China, Japan, Thailand, Vietnam and others.

So the old fashion Dale Carnegie, How To Win Friends And Influence People is not a strong suit in Donald El Orange’s bailiwick.

But NEVER FEAR! Whenever Tubularsock is confronted with major “Oriental” dilemmas, Tubularsock puts down his double neat shot of Single Barrel Kentucky Wild Turkey and reaches for his favorite IMPORTED Japanese Sake dispensing with those small little cups and drinking it Wild-Western-Style from the bottle!

THAT’S TUBULARSOCK’S ASIAN TRADE POLICY!
