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.”

PIVOT

Ok, ok ……….

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

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

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

tube-obama-not-right

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

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

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

Guantanamo is still open for business.

The war in Afghanistan still continues.

The war in Iraq still continues.

The war in Libya still continues.

And Barack has added to that

The war in Syria AND

The war in Yemen AND

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

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

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

WHAT DOES THAT SAY ABOUT THE SWEDES?***

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

HUMANITARIANESQUE BUT NOT!

This week the USAID’s “Large shipment of life-saving assistance arrives in Yemen”.

According to its website:

WASHINGTON, D.C. -The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) announced the arrival of enough wheat to feed more than one million people for two months in Yemen this morning. The wheat shipment from USAID totals 35,800tons and is valued at approximately $21million. It will support the emergency food assistance efforts of the UN World Food Program (WFP).

Wow, $21 million ……. sounds like a lot doesn’t it.

And this week from the U.S. State Department:

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. State Department has approved the possible sale to Saudi Arabia of 5.4 billion in additional PAC-3 missiles built by Lockheed Martin Corp., the Pentagon said . . . and $500 million worth of ammunition. (Reuters)

Well it seems to Tubularsock that that $21 million doesn’t seem like very much anymore.

And if you add that in October, 2010 the U.S. provided Saudi Arabia with $60 BILLION worth of arms, the largest arms deal in American history well that $21 million just looks more like chump change now doesn’t it.

Now just a reminder for those who haven’t been awake. Saudi Arabia is blowing the shit out of Yemen and has been for months. And the U.S. is providing all the shit to blow up the shit.

Well it comes down to this, the American backed dictator of Yemen was overthrown by a rebel group called the Houthi and the Houthi are not the guys the U.S. wants to control Yemen and nor do our good friends the Saudis.

So the ONLY solution is to blow the shit out of all the men, women, and children of Yemen.

Are the people of Yemen pro-Houthi or pro-former dictator? Well, who has time to ask.

WE (America) don’t like the Houthi and that’s enough.

Now Tubularsock has given up a long time ago trying to figure out the good-guys from the bad-guys but whether it’s a dictatorship of the Houthi or an American appointed dictator what’s it to those under either dictator.

The most honest thing about all this is the U.S. is not talking up all that bringing democracy to Yemen crap. Tubularsock see that as growth.

But here is where it gets Orwellian.head in hole

The U.N. started on April 17, 2015 an appeal for $274 million (the cost of one helicopter)  to respond to the most pressing humanitarian needs over the following three months in Yemen.

Saudi Arabia IMMEDIATELY volunteered to write a check out for that exact amount. BUT THE AID WOULD COME WITH STRINGS ATTACHED!

And those strings would control who got the aid. Now, in the once upon a time world, humanitarian aid was directed toward civilians who were caught in the middle of a conflict regardless of who they were ……. they were civilians.

But by Saudi Arabia controlling the humanitarian purse they have turned the humanitarian aid into genocide.

As Sheikh al­Matari, the head of Yemen’s Rasoul Akram Foundation, an aid organization stated,

“After unilaterally and, let’s be frank, after illegally declaring war on Yemen, (do we dare say preemptive?) the Saudi government wants also to dictate how humanitarian relief is distributed in the very country it is attacking”.

And  Sheikh al­Matari continued, “. . . aid funding in relation to Yemen, the U.N. de facto institutionalized aid segregation by allowing humanitarian relief to be conditional to certain criteria: political affiliation and religious orientation.”

As outrageous as this is the United States and the United Nations stands by and allows this genocidal behavior to take place.

Makes Tubularsock wonder whether either of these entities are  worth anything any longer.

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.
