UKRAINE PAIN!

Tubularsock is kind of like an elephant in the respect that he doesn’t forget. As the maimed-stream-news cycle continues …….. now it’s the refugee crisis which they are all animated about but never can figure out WHY this is happening. You know the destabilization of the Middle East by the U.S. and NATO.

It is like the refugee crisis happened in some kind of a vacuum. Only because one would have to put 2 and 2 together which has always been the maimed-stream-new’s problem. You know, that would take journalism to pull off. 

Anyway, Tubularsock has been reading what is happening in the Ukraine and it is truly fascinating.

You see, change is in the air and the discussion is like this (the nutshell version):

If you recall when we left off the U.S. overthrew the Ukraine and put  prime minister Arseni “Jaz” Yatsenyuk into power designated by Victoria Nuland as the man the Americans supported. And Nuland stated in a documented tape, “Fuck the EU” to the resistance to this choice by the EU.

But now the U.S. neocons (which Nuland and her husband are part) want to dump Premier Yatsenyuk (because of corruption) and replace him with the former Georgian Prime Minister Mikhail Saakashvili for new Premier of the Ukraine.

The fun part is that Saakashvili is wanted by an international arrest warrant for abuse of office during his term in Georgia. Saakashvili misappropriated Georgian taxpayers’ money. (New York Times)

Mikhail Saakashvili had emigrated to the US in 2013 and worked closely with the US Neocons. He is one of the key interlocutors of Republican John McCain, who is fighting for a hard line of the United States against Russia. (German Economic News)

Viktoria Siumar (Popular Front Party Deputy, Yatsenyuk’s party) who had previously worked for the US broadcaster Voice of America was named alongside the

US born Minister of Finance Natalia Jaresko and Saakashvili as Yatsenyuk’s possible successors.

Interesting side note: “Natalia Jaresko had previously worked in the US State Department and as an investment banker. In divorce proceedings her husband raised serious allegations against Jaresko, accusing them of corruption and misappropriation of taxpayers ‘money. Jaresko is the EU and the IMF main contact person in the distribution of European and American taxpayers’ money in Ukraine. Official annual reports on the whereabouts of these instructed by the EU and the federal government billions are not known.” (German Economic News)

So bottom line …… does anyone really think that CORRUPTION is any kind of reason for dumping Yatsenyuk? Corruption looks more like a qualification rather than a deterrent.

So what gives?

Well here is what Tubularsock sees that is happening and it is up to you to keep your eye on the ball with Tubularsock because Tubularsock only has four eyes plus his “third” eye and it’s the “third” eye which has focused on THIS BASIC FACT:

Yatsenyuk is against privatization of state property!

Or at least that is what he has said but Saakashvili (the new neocons darling) has also accused him of delaying reforms and being in the hands of the oligarchs especially Igor Kolomoysksi giving him favors in the privatization of the Ukrainian aviation industry.

Of course Yatsenjuk says that’s bull shit! (Це ЛАЙНО БИКА! in Ukrainian.)

According to Yatsenyuk it will be impossible to fight corruption without changing the country’s system of government in the Ukraine.

“The system of government in Ukraine has in fact remained the same as it was under the Soviet Union”, according to Yatsenyuk.

Currently, at least according to polls, 72% of Ukrainians think the government is going “in the wrong direction”. Two-thirds of Ukrainians have an “unfavorable” view of President Petro Poroshenko while 85% disapproved of Yatsenyuk.(Christian Science Monitor)

But really, what do the Ukrainian People know?

If you want the next down-field-play in the Ukrainian Drama ask the neocons they seem to run the inside track.

President Petro Poroshenko (L) and Mikhail Saakashvili

President Petro Poroshenko (L) and Mikhail Saakashvili

Oh, did Tubularsock forget to mention that Saakashvili is a devotee of Reagan and Thatcher?

And that during the Bush Administration Georgia under Saakashvili’s leadership “. . . did all it could to become a staunch U.S. ally: It is the largest non-NATO member of the international security force in Afghanistan and, according to a report by the Open Society Foundation, participated in the CIA’s “extraordinary renditions” program detaining alleged enemy combatants in the war on terror.”(BuzzFeedNews 10/28/13)

Hey, could it get better than that for a neocon?

GAGA AND BEYOND!

Tubularsock has found that most everything has a basic simple explanation. And then layers are placed upon the simple to attempt either to confuse one from understanding what is going on or to attempt to explain the simple in a complex way so as to create the illusion that those who are attempting to carry out the simple idea look like they know what they are doing.

Either way Tubularsock calls it BULLSHIT STACKING. And it is a major policy practice of the American political establishment.

Tube&Gaga

Don’t think so ……. then you are just stupid! Now how simple is that?

Well if you have been following the Regimented-Free-Press (RFP) you’ll know that Lady Gaga just got engaged on Valentines Day. And yes she got a custom designed heart shaped diamond engagement ring. Is there any other kind? How simple.

AND to top that off YOU TOO can dress like Lady Gaga as shown by this ad following the article about her engagement.

How simple.

Screen Shot 2015-02-22 at 6.36.05 PM

Tubularsock believes that there is a difference between general WHITE garments for less and Lady Gaga’s custom made gown. What do think? Tubularsock is not going to rush out and buy one. How simple.

The RFP also made room for a little coverage of the old boring news as well. Not as exciting as heart shaped diamonds and endearing love but just some other stuff the RFP feels they can fill their new cycles with because after all one thing they constantly do well is report without questioning.

Well this in one of those news reports.

If you compared the pressing questions directed to Lady Gaga from the press to the half asleep nodding heads of the Washington Press Corp when Step’n-fetch-it Obomber’s lackey’s and running dogs announced :

Obama drone headline

you would have seen their lack of concern and knowledge that the RFP regularly displays.

Well there is a story here and Tubularsock is going to point out ONLY one simple fact for you to consider. But Tubularsock does have to remind you on how the game works.

Now you may remember when the United States under the Carter and Reagan Administrations decided to arm the mujahideen so they could fight the Soviets in Afghanistan. And of course we sent in American “trainers” to assist in teaching the mujahideen. But that was not all. The U.S.  in addition to overt and covert funding operations by various U.S. governmental agencies there were a large variety of private “aid” agencies and think tanks that formed policies and not only profited from those policies but were also up to their chinny-chin-chins in the drugs­-for-­guns Iran-­Contra networks of that then­ Vice President George-the-prick-Bush and his loyal sidekick Oliver-dumb-fuck-North had undertaken.

This falls under what is known as PROXY WARS. A war where a country has “others” stand in and fight an enemy rather than doing the fighting directly. Like in this case where the U.S. and the Soviet Union can’t fight a war directly because it could escalate into World War III.

So both powers create and fund “others” to alter the area where each wish to control and exploit.

Now the United States is by far the greatest Proxy War creator than any other nation in the world. We have more military bases in the world, we sell more war equipment than any other nation in the world and we overthrow more established governments than any other country in the world.

AND WE ACT LIKE WE WANT PEACE?

That’s what we do. And we do this to control natural resources such as oil but there is far more at stake than just oil.  Natural gas, Tungsten, and the list continues. WE WANT them for us so to keep the Chinese from sucking them up before we do.

Screen Shot 2015-02-22 at 6.09.45 PM

                                             

The Chinese are active in Africa  so the United States destabilizes the area so as to make it unstable for nations to control the extraction of these resources. THAT is what Boko Haram in Nigeria is all about and the CIA helped to create this situation to divide and conquer Africa.

That is what al Qaeda is all about. The CIA under Carter and Reagan created al Qaeda and supported Osama bin Laden.

Bin-CIA

The U.S. also funded and supported Saddam Hussein. We provided him with the WMD’s that we later used as the excuse to overthrow him.

When it comes to RIGHT WING brutal dictators in Latin America the U.S. helped to create, fund and trained ALL OF THEM!

The amount of MASS MURDER that the U.S. has created in the world and supported through these “PROXIES” is overwhelming.

And we have continued this type of Foreign Policy to the point that today the BLOW-BACK is hitting the fan.

Now, explain to Tubularsock why Obomer believes that “our” allies today are going to be our allies tomorrow or for that matter next week!

“U.S. officials suggested the drone sales could become a new tool for expanding American influence overseas.” (LA Times)

So now rather than just killing people by drone-murder we are going to sell drones to who? It is the same pattern again?

Oh yeah, “strong and capable international partners”! Oh, Right.

So we just have to sell them to Jordan. We just have to do it. They NEED THEM to “defeat” ISIS! Sure they do. The U.S. has been droning ISIS for almost two years now …… are they defeated? Will Jordan be better at it?

And what happen if ISIS captures the drones? Then what?

And where did ISIS come from ………..? Who helped to train many of them? Arm them?

We are going to now help Jordan drone them? We must, we must!

Even Congress sees the need, “Given our mutual interests, and our strong relationship, it’s absolutely critical that we provide Jordan the support needed to defeat the Islamic State,” Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., wrote to President Obama in a Feb. 5 letter.

Did Tubularsock mention that much of drone manufacturing is centered in Southern California.

So Northrop Grumman Corp., Lockheed Martin Corp., and General Atomics Aeronautical Systems Inc. just happen to build drones which when  Rep. Duncan Hunter, says “Given our mutual interests . . .” we at least know who he’s talking about!

Israel, Russia and China, manufacture military drones and have fewer compunctions about selling them. But by the U.S, getting into the market we can have more influence over how countries actually use their drones. Like murdering people from the sky is any different with an Israeli drone or an American one.

Now don’t be scared,  U.S. made drone technology will ONLY be sold to “allies” that agree to “end-use monitoring and potential additional security conditions.” Feel better?

The restrictions would limit potential misuse of drones, such as attacks against a country’s own civilian population.

Hey, remember how well that worked with Saddam Hussein when Reagan sold him the gas that was used on the Kurds? Sure, “limit potential misuse”!

AND THIS IS THE POINT!

Screen Shot 2015-02-22 at 6.16.01 PM

                         

We have created these enemies over the years to promote “American Interests” meaning “PROFITS FOR THE FEW” and now we will provide military ready drones to “allies” (like Saddam Hussein) and then wonder WHAT WENT WRONG?

Now for years Tubularsock has watched this happen and couldn’t figure out why our questionable leaders continued to race down the same path and get the same result. And they appeared not to notice.

THEN CAME ENLIGHTENMENT!

Tubularsock was coming from thinking “WE” wanted world peace and democracy and dignity of man/woman.

Yeah, Tubularsock knows ……… how foolish.

NO, THE PLAN is exactly what they are doing. The proof’s in the pudding!

Continued war IS the goal. Create an enemy, train them, support them, and turn them onto those we want to control. And then destroy our creations when they become no longer useful.

That’s the game.

And the beautiful thing about it is that all those mothers and fathers out there that don’t have their sons and daughters because they died in the game, hold onto the fantasy that their dead offspring gave their lives to protect America. They are just poor DUMB FUCKS! Their don’t get the game.

single coffin

                     

                             

And then they give them a folded American flag and some metal trinkets and tell them what heroes their dead children were and they FUCKING BUY IT out of grief! Shame on them and their poor sad souls. You have been had. 

It’s a game …….. wake up!

And for you military brain-died who march off thinking you are going to do something noble, you too have been had.

And that is why you fucks are killing yourselves like flies on your return because you finally figured it out. The U.S. doesn’t give a fuck about you.

And how does Tubularsock know? Fucking take a look. THEY ALWAYS can make a profit on military equipment and Congress dumps money into military procurement.

But wake up dumb fucks ……. Congress just can’t seem to find the money to cover you veterans.

WHY? You are not profitable. You are spent. You are used equipment. You have been spent and had. You would have been left like old military equipment on the battlefield if the American government could figure out how to get away with it.

You now are a cost ……… fuck you!

  no way out

                                   

                                       

So the bottom line is that the United States creates its enemies and then spends trillions of dollars to destroy the enemy that has been created thereby creating more enemies  and the cycle continues.

The U.S. doesn’t want it to stop! THERE IS NO PROFIT IN PEACE.

Tube bust through heading

 

Now here is something that you won’t believe. Tubularsock has discovered an operative TIME MACHINE. Hey really, it is up and running and YOU haven’t even noticed!

It’s amazing at several levels. First, it’s right in front of you. Second, you don’t have to climb into it. Third, it is operating as Tubularsock writes this information to you.

Fasten your seat belt, expect tubebulence!

It appears to Tubularsock that this new 21st century TIME MACHINE was plugged in a long time ago maybe all the way back to Babbling-Alzheimer-Ridden Reagan but no matter, it is manifesting NOW so that is where we are in TIME MACHINE present moment time!

The United States has become a combination of (perhaps due to cross wiring within the TIME MACHINE)  the end of the Roman Empire combined with the ultimate Fascist State. ( jump back, fucking Hitler!)

The government and the corporation are one and the same, hence: Fascism!

Now, Tubularsock knew there’d be doubters.

Fucking look at the facts …………. everything the United States Government does is TO PROTECT NATIONAL INTERESTS.

Now the American public THINKS that THAT is them but it is not! PROTECT NATIONAL INTERESTS is capitalistic profit and control speak for their profit and their control! That is the reality, period!

The United States Empire Direction is crumbling and this was foretold by putting a BLACK Man in the WHITE House. See the color contrasting problem?

The White Power Structure needed a scapegoat so what better scapegoat than a Black Man. Especially a Black Man who only looks FORWARD! (He’d fucking freak out if that fucker looked back!)

And just like the Roman Empire we have troops and mercenaries throughout the world destabilizing areas so to conquer them as servant-states. (in the old days they were called colonies but we’re past that, we’re modern!)

ALSO our economy and monetary policies are crumbling because we have sunk to a belief that denial is the operative solution.

It is all falling apart as it did for the Romans. Wow, time flies …………

At the same time as the Roman Empire is crumbling (476 C.E.) and the Fascist State is solidifying (1930’s AD) we have a Caliphate forming before our very eyes. We are talking about the 600 BC here!

Wow! This TIME MACHINE is awesome!

No really, tell Tubularsock ……… how often have you seen the fall of the Roman Empire, the rise of the Fascist State and the formation of a Caliphate ALL AT THE SAME TIME?

Which only goes to prove that TIME IS AN ILLUSION.

But this is the 21st Century for Christ sake! Top this:

Add to all of this THE COLD WAR!

Yes, Ladies and Gentlemen, THE COLD WAR too!

You get the fall of the Roman Empire …..

You get the rise of the Fascist State …..

You get the formation of a Caliphate …..

AND THE COLD WAR TOO!

ALL FOR ONE LOW PRICE!

A box set just in time for the holiday season!

And if you act now Tubularsock will toss in ***** AT NO EXTRA CHARGE*****

Joe Biden’s new hit single: “FOLLOW YOU TO THE GATES OF HELL”

gates of hell tube biden

SO ACT NOW  ******* ONLY $19.95

CALL NOW 1 800 BUY-TUBE

********************************************

Ok, Tubularsock got a little carried away here. Shows you what happens when the dream of short term profit overcomes long term thinking.

In such a short time period the U.S. came from “saving the world” from the clutches of evil Fascism and destroying Communism to being the ultimate Fascist-Police-State and attempting to bomb-drone-and-torture the world into lockstep-order TO PROTECT OUR NATIONAL INTERESTS.

Well it’s not working. Self interest will win the day and it may be a surprise but other countries in the world have their own self interests too.

It will be fun to see Germany, Russia, and China form an economic bloc. The old day fascists and commies finding their home grown roots against the present day U.S. fascist-police state.

What will the TIME MACHINE  show us next? Just maybe Tubularsock will have figured out the dials and buttons in the TIME MACHINE  by then. Ahh, what adventures await.

From a series of informed sources who are not authorized to speak on this issue but have nothing else to do today in the bloated government bureaucracy has presented an outline of the influence of the new Secretary Of The Inferior on the Obama Administration.*

The Tubularsock News Team has also sent our stealth photographer into the mix and has documented photographic evidence of all the rumor and innuendo.

As we like to say at the Tubularsock News Team break-room, “If a picture is worth a thousand words then this story is worth ten thousand words!”

Rather than be accused of conflict of interest we have turned our investigative journalism over to the tabloid, The New York Toast.

NY Toast Cover

From the very beginning fear in the Administration was palpable. Could a “commoner” be able to bond with the elite?

Well, our inside sources all concurred that the new Secretary Of The Inferior fit like a hand in a glove.

Lunch

The new Secretary Of The Inferior was asked by the press how he felt to be at the left hand of The President of the United States and he clearly stated, “no, the steak tartare please”.

The more comfortable the Secretary Of The Inferior became the more cautious distrust  appeared within the West Wing. In fact, down right suspiciousness of his intentions were felt and cloaked in plutocratic innuendo.

This type of approach to an obvious “outsider” was lost on the Secretary who felt that they liked him. But he started to isolate himself in the President’s office.

Tube pres office money

That suspicious attitude became more prevalent within the President himself.

Tube Obama family issues

However the Secretary Of The Inferior and Michelle became more ……..

Say ………… ahh, shall we say “friendly”?

Not being sure of the Secretary Of The Inferior’s intentions Obama started to take him with him whenever he traveled.

Tube obama plane door

Plane Wave

And then one day the President and the Secretary Of The Inferior were scheduled to fly to the Asian Conference in Kuala Lumpur.

Tube wave plane

Tube in cockpit

Stolen

Obama left

Now in any Presidential Administration lots of stuff gets stolen. Paper clips, ball point pens, computers, ground-keeper tools, ballistic missiles, large sums of cash, larger sums of cash, cash of larger sums than that and one’s integrity.

The biggest surprise is that anyone noticed.

Immediately Congress formed two committees, one in the House and one in the Senate. Each committee member and staff took it upon themselves to fly to Kuala Lumpur to see where Air Force One should have landed if it hadn’t been stolen.

It was verified that there was NO, they repeated NO, Air Force One on any golf course in Kuala Lumpur.

Senator John McCain was unable to say, “The terrorist have been part of this Obama Administration for some time and the Ukrainian people need all ….. no, I mean Palestine has to be considered ….. no, I mean  …”

The CIA, NSA, DIA, NGA, NRO, AFISRA, MI, MCIA, ONI, OICI, I&A, CGI, FB/NSB, DEA/ONSI, INR, and the TFI were all called into service but many of them were out of the office so a message was left with their respective receptionists. **

All of these agencies work separately and together to conduct intelligence activities and are under the I.C. which is headed by the DNI, who reports to the President.**

The FBI, DOS, DSS, IRS-CID, TIGTA, USMP, DOD, DCIS, CID, OSI, NCIS, DOJ, ATF, USDI, USDA, DOC, HHS, DHS, USCG, FPS, CGPD, CBP, ICE, USSS, SPS,USCP, USPIS were also all put on the case. **

It appears that the USPIS (United States Postal Inspection Service) may have not been necessary however Senator Diane Feinstein insisted that it was not because her husband was well invested in post offices that the agency must play a role. It was because of “. . . her keen concern to protect every woman and child of this great land”.

As Senator Feinstein did not say, “That plane could have been easily packed up in a pre-postage-paid-priority-mail-express-package and shipped to the Russians for all we know!”

As a result over seventeen million dollars will be allocated to throughly inspect ALL the P.O.Boxes in every post office within the United States.

Representative Robert Fuckoff (R) Ohio demanded that for national security concerns he would pursue drafting a bill to create an inspection team to investigate all “general delivery” windows of every post office in the United States.

During an impromptu stop over at the employee’s break room at Postal Inspection, Inc. Rep. Fuckoff stated, “This twenty-seven million dollar allocation bill will ensure that inspections would be conducted on all “general delivery” locations. What better way is there to protect our citizens from terrorists who want to harm our home-land?” 

When the maimed-stream media asked about the rumor that his family was involved in Postal Inspection, Inc. Representative Fuckoff stated, “Those accusations have been made before!” 

……………………………………………

A Special Blue Ribbon Committee was appointed immediately if not sooner by the President to “investigate the disappearance of Air Force One and The Secretary Of The Inferior” and to report back to him. The President insisted that the Committee’s work would be totally transparent and would be held in secret for national security reasons.

The maimed-stream media didn’t pursue the definition of transparent assuming the President is a Constitutional Scholar and knew the definition better than they.

Congress announced that it will immediately take up the issue of funding the Special Blue Ribbon Committee as soon as they return from their inter-session break and before their fall break. This leaves “. . . a corridor of six full hours” stated Senator DipStick (D) from Louisiana. 

Conspiracy

First there were the sightings.

DairyQueed gang

(UPI) “They were ALL there”, said Jimmy Insano from DelRio, Texas. “Right out in front of the Dairy Queen! Elvis, bin Laden, Kennedy and the Secretary Of The Inferior!

“I didn’t see no plane or anything like that …… but I didn’t go in the Dairy Queen. Sure, it could have been in there.”

 The heat in DelRio at times reaches 135 degrees in the shade.

(The Sun, UK) “The chances of Air Force One being snatched from the sky by an alien space craft isn’t as far fetched as it may appear” says Jay Jay Johnson. “There have been sightings recently as far away as Denver”, he continued. “Space IS the final frontier, you know, and if and I’m saying IF, The Secretary Of The Inferior had been sent with a message to give to extraterrestrials, then why not?” Jay Jay Johnson concluded.

(New York Times) It was reported today that the Malaysian Government was asked by President Obama to assist in the tracking of the missing Air Force One. Critics say this new development has created perhaps a “hint” that the President isn’t sincere about finding the Secretary Of The Inferior.

President Obama’s new Press Secretary Josh Earnest, stated at todays news briefing that “. . . he was earnest that the President was earnest about the search for Air Force One as well as The Secretary Of The Inferior”.

This confused the White House Press Corp because they thought the President was not Earnest because Josh Earnest was Earnest. And Josh Earnest stated that he was earnest and the President was earnest as well. The White House Press Corp reiterated that Earnest was Earnest and Earnest was not Obama.

After forty-five minutes the Earnest – earnest conundrum was tabled until a later date.

(FOX News) Donald Rumsfeld was asked to comment on the incident and stated: “we know, there are known knowns; there are things that we know that we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns, the ones we don’t know we don’t know.”

And he continued, “The missing Secretary Of The Inferior is the ultimate in unknown unknowns, if you ask me.”

And of course, Dick Cheney was asked for comments on this new international mystery but was unable to make it to the interview because he had “left his heart in San Francisco” and hadn’t noticed until his flight was over Wisconsin. Which at that point had to turn his flight back to the West Coast.

Tube lite Tom Heading

Tomahawk Cash

YOU might not have noticed but while Tubularsock was overseeing his vast stock portfolio he noticed a very interesting development.

tube invest copy

Obomber speaks of attacking Syria and RAYTHEON’s stock goes up reaching a 52-week high at $81.26 per share. 

Now for you hoi polloi ,your ability to grasp this development, more than likely, passed over your heads but for Tubularsock and the capitalist class this was great news.

Tubularsock cashed in buying low and selling high. Using this new found wealth to invest in body-bag sales. There is going to be a killing to be made in this market, yes pun intended.

LET ME EXPLAIN IN SIMPLE TERMS:

Obomber announces attacking Syria.

RAYTHEON’s stock jumps up.

Tomahawk Missiles are made by RAYTHEON.

 

A Tomahawk Missile cost $1,000,000.00 each.

 

Once they blow up you need another one.

 

More than 2,000 have be fired in combat over the years.

 

Once they blow up you need another one.

 

Most American warships are equipped with 90 of them.

 

Once they blow up you need another one.

 

There are four U.S. warships set to fire these missiles at Syria.

 

Once they blow up you need another one.

 

There is BIG profit to me made by RAYTHEON here.

 

WHY?

 

ONCE THEY BLOW UP YOU NEED ANOTHER ONE!

But there’s more.

The Pentagon buys 196 Tomahawk missiles a year. That is what is considered the “minimum sustaining rate” but after firing hundreds of them on Libya in 2011, well gosh we have had to ramp up production.

Now accounting for the extra orders, RAYTHEON delivered 252 missiles this fiscal year and 361 last fiscal year. But one can’t have enough because Tubularsock has read some place that “once you blow them up you need another one”.

“In its budget submission for fiscal 2013, the White House requested 196 Tomahawks, for a total program cost of $320 million. It’s requesting the same amount next fiscal year, for a cost of $325 million. The increase in price, defense watchers say, is the result of several factors: inflation, rising fuel costs and a shrinking supply chain.”  (Austin Wright, Politico)

But when you factor in the “total program cost” a Tomahawk Missile costs $1,658,163.26. Think about that …..

every time the Navy presses a button ……..

 

BOOM $1,658,163.26 goes up …… and we need another one.

A Tomahawk Missile has “advanced contour mapping” so they can fly low and avoid ground radar. They have a range of up to 1,300 nautical miles. They travel at more than 500 miles an hour. And they can hover over their targets for hours providing a real-time view of the battlefield.

They deliver a 1,000 pound warhead that can devastate half an urban block and can hit a target the size of a home’s window.

 

THEY HAVE AN 85% DIRECT HIT RATE.

Are you impressed yet?

Well Tubularsock has come up with a couple of thoughts here.

Ahhh ……… 15% of the time they don’t have a direct hit so how many urban blocks are wiped out by hitting the WRONG home’s window?

tubeblowcamera 

I guess it’s not much. You know how ALL urban blocks look pretty much the same.

But to be fair Raytheon was not the only defense contractor who saw their stock price go up during the buildup for a potential strike. Boeing, General Dynamics and Lockheed Martin — all missile system manufacturers — all saw sharp gains.

And can you believe that those homeless people Tubularsock has to set over ever time I walk down a city block have the nerve to ask for money to eat! The nerve of some people!
