IRAN–RATHER WALK!

 

Wow! Here’s some shit you need to know.

Rudy Giuliani addressed a rally in Paris Saturday June 30, 2018.

Get this …….. he spoke to a group called the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI). These guys are mostly controlled by the Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MeK).

Remember the MeK? Come on, you remember.

The MeK was once listed by the U.S. as a terrorist organization. But you know how that wind changes right? Now those same TERRORISTS are our friends.

Tubularsock has a “feeling” that we have been here before. Try Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, even Vietnam for starters. And WE LOST or are still loosing.

But winning is not the point …….. destabilization is the point.

Can you imagine loosing a child because they joined the military to destabilize the world? What a waste. Sure shows how your dead child was just cannon fodder for the machine.

And the regular people of those countries lost big time. Hundreds of thousands of them, DEAD! And the United States of America killed them or had them killed!

FOR WHAT? Rest assured Mr. and Mrs. America is wasn’t for your safety.

Now Rudy Giuliani is their friend!

(An aside about Rudy. Every time I listen to or see Rudy Giuliani, Tubularsock has to wash his hands. The slim that runs off that son-of-a-bitch is intense!)

And MeK is a Marxist-Islamist cult built around the personality of its leader, Maryam Rajavi.

Rudy under direction from Trump are backing a Marxist-Islamist cult? Damn!

“We are now realistically being able to see an end to the regime in Iran. . .” Rudy tells the 4000 member crowd.

And much of the crowd was bought and payed for by the organizers. A large portion of the crowd were refugees and young eastern Europeans who had been bused in to attend the rally in return for a weekend trip to Paris.(The Guardian 6/30/18)

Damn the price some people will endure to get to Paris. Tubularsock would have done that! “Yeah MeK!, NOW, can I go and see The Louvre?”

Giuliani continued with, “The mullahs must go, the ayatollah must go, and they must be replaced by a democratic government which Madam Rajavi represents!

“Freedom is right around the corner … Next year I want to have this convention in Tehran!”

And then Rudy let the cat out of the bag, the current wave of protests in Iran are being orchestrated from outside the country! Wonder if anyone bothered to ask the Iranians?

“Those protests are not happening spontaneously,” Giuliani said. “They are happening because of many of our people in Albania [which hosts an MeK compound] and many of our people here and throughout the world.”

So is Rudy saying “our people” because Rudy is a Marxist-Islamist cult member?

And that is how the U.S. worked the overthrow in the Ukraine by joining with the fascists
to bring the country down. The majority of the people wanted to side with Russia NOT the U.S.

In fact, the U.S. put up 5 BILLION dollars to overthrow Ukraine.

Now what do you think the U.S. (that is YOU, taxpayer) is putting up to attempt the overthrow Iran?

AND FOR WHAT?

JUST HOW WILL IT BENEFIT YOU?

Well, figure in the cost of Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen and then go out and look at your pot holed streets and broken bridges and the 21 TRILLION DOLLARS that the Pentagon has lost track of ……. hey, it’s got to be someplace!

No, don’t bother to check your own bank account to find it. For sure it’s not there!

Trust Tubularsock on that!

Now before anyone gets all upset about just how “dangerous” Iran is to the U.S. Tubularsock is willing to concede this idea.

Lets put Giuliani, John Bolton, Mike Pompeo, Newt Gingrich in a jeep with each with a M-16 and let them charge the boarder.

 

 

Seriously, Tubularsock will back them from his top floor corner office overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA!

VICTORY IS OURS!

WARJÀ VU

Do you ever get that “feeling” that you have seen this before?

Well Tubularsock calls it WARJÀ VU.

It is that “Here we go again moment”.

 George W. Bush promised a humble foreign policy with no nation building:

“If we don’t stop extending our troops all around the world in nation-building missions, then we’re going to have a serious problem coming down the road. And I’m going to prevent that.” (Candidate Bush)

He criticized the Clinton-Gore Administration for being too interventionist.

 

                                      Barack Obama spoke out against the impending war in Iraq in the fall of 2002 and in 2004 questioned the Bush administration’s management of the Iraq War, and highlighted America’s obligations to its soldiers.

 

As Ivo Daalder, a former National Security Council official under President Clinton who later headed up a team advising Obama on nonproliferation issues, put it, “There’s a feeling that this is a guy who’s going to help us transform the way America deals with the world.”

AND YET, Obama pursued similarly imperialistic policies to those of his predecessor, George W. Bush.
In fact, if you are counting Obama out did Bush in bombing and killing!

Bush: Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and Somalia.

Obama: Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, Libya and Syria.

 

“I will never send our finest into battle unless necessary, and I mean absolutely necessary, and will only do so if we have a plan for victory with a capital V,” he thundered. “The world must know that we do not go abroad in search of enemies.” (candidate Trump)

Trump’s view  of the Iraq War BEFORE he was President:

*** March 2007 interview on CNN (“Declare victory and leave”)

*** 2008 interview with British GQ (“First, I’d get out of Iraq right now”)

*** 2011 interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan where Trump said he’d get US troops in Iraq “out real fast.”

Donald Trump promised an America First foreign policy that would shrink the US role on the world stage and spend more money at home than abroad.

 

1. Sending more American troops to Afghanistan.
no timetable for when those troops would come home.

2. Syria, where Trump has deployed sizable numbers of American combat forces and directly attacked the military of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.

3. Iraq, Trump has not only dispatched hundreds of new US troops to the country but has also put them closer to the front lines and given them more freedom to bombard targets from the air.

4. In Yemen, elite US special operations forces are conducting ground assaults while the US wages an increasingly brutal air campaign against

Trump even mused about sending the US military into Venezuela, though he didn’t offer any explanation of why or what their mission would be.

This is the exact opposite of what many of Trump’s core supporters had expected. And same went for Obama and Bush!

And here is the key:

We have never left the neoconservative foreign policy paradigm that the U.S. must dominate the world. And that is where regime change comes into play.

So these continuous wars that we find ourselves in, REGARDLESS OF THE FEELINGS OF THE AMERICAN PUBLIC, are due to a pre-fixed program of American domination.

And no matter which Party or what the President says about being AGAINST WAR, they are not.

Yet the public falls for it time after time.

As Zbigniew Brzezinski expressed, “Most Americans are close to total ignorance about the world. They are ignorant. That is an unhealthy condition in a country in which foreign policy has to be endorsed by the people if it is to be pursued. And it makes it much more difficult for any president to pursue an intelligent policy that does justice to the complexity of the world.”

So the way the ignorant citizen is directed into this false and dangerous foreign policy is by “false-flag” actions such as the Gulf of Tonkin and the 9/11.

Because an external enemy threat has been the tool to keep the citizens in line even when they are opposed to continuous wars.

 

And now ENTER JOHN BOLTON and GINA HASPEL!

John Bolton is so conservative that he, years ago, had fallen off the “right” end of the conservative spectrum into the lunatic fringe.

He believes that a first strike against North Korea and Iran would be acceptable.

He falls in with the Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz crowd that brought us the Iraq War.

BUT BOLTON STILL BELIEVES IT WAS A GOOD IDEA.

Yes, not only delusional but just plain stupid in the dangerous way.

And Trump has appointed him his National Security Advisor.

AND THEN THERE’S GINA!

Trump has appointed her the new Director of the CIA.

She not only condones torture but oversaw a black-site in Thailand for the purpose of torturing prisoners.

And on top of BEING A WAR CRIMINAL for that she also prepared the cable granting permission to destroy tapes with an industrial shredder of the interrogation sessions of terror detainees.

This was done after the CIA had been instructed NOT TO destroy the tapes.

The direction to prepare the cable granting destruction of evidence was given by Jose Rodriguez, director of the CIA’s Counterterrorism Center.

And is the classic case of “just following orders” from Gina.

SO HERE WE COME AROUND AGAIN ……… WAR HAS TO HAPPEN!

And it will.

Which leads us to THE NEXT FALSE FLAG EVENT.

It is necessary to galvanize the American Public into supporting a war or wars they really don’t want.

Wouldn’t it be fun if Tubularsock was WRONG?

Sadly, he’s not. You’ll see.

 

DEATH CULT AMERICA

 

Well “Mad dog Mattis”, our beloved Secretary of Defense, has admitted that the 80 plus living people who are dead now after President Dump bomb the Syrian Airbase with Tomahawk missiles in 2017 didn’t have to die.

Mattis, admits that THERE IS NO EVIDENCE ASSAD USED SARIN GAS ON HIS OWN PEOPLE IN 2013 OR IN 2017!

Remember that entire thing about Obomber’s “red line in the sand” and the criticism he received because HE DIDN’T bomb Syria for the gas attack in 2013. He didn’t have clear evidence that Assad really used sarin gas. And then later it was shown that “our” terrorists were the ones that used it.

So Obomber not retaliating was due to lack of clear evidence. And rather than blunder with death and destruction he stepped back.

However LittleLimpDickTrump RUSHED to bomb the Syrian Airbase and kill 80 plus people with no clear evidence that the Assad Government had done it. His action was ONLY because he wanted to ACT LIKE he had a large dick. Ask Stormy, he doesn’t!

No surprise there.

But “Mad dog” didn’t bother to explain how the United States was going to bring those 80 plus people back from the dead. Well, in truth he never really thought about the people.

He only admitted that the U.S. had no proof that Assad was involved.

Tubularsock is surprised that we didn’t rush off and bomb Afghanistan like Bush did after 9/11.

You see, The U.S. has to bomb somebody! It’s the MANLY thing to do.

That is what the presstitutes and the establish power structure calls “Presidential”!

And as “Mad dog Mattis has said, “Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.”

He is definitely a creepy little old limp prick!

 

But it is a systematic problem for the United States. We are a killing culture and it is condoned by the President and Congress.

AND the citizens of the U.S as well.

But the citizens of the U.S. don’t really care much if we kill random men, women, and children in those foreign countries because they somehow find themselves on the battlefield called THEIR COUNTRY and get themselves killed.

And it is agreed that America is in THEIR COUNTRY to save them from THEIR COUNTRY!

And the fact that they get dead by the United States because we are there to save them ……….

WELL …… that is their fault

But then WE have ANOTHER school shooting and the American citizen gets, well you know, all emotional and they feel something should be done.

But the President and Congress NEVER wants to face the gun issue because EVERYONE is just too emotional to clearly decide ANYTHING about guns at this point in the latest crisis.

 

Let step back and support and send our prayers and face this crisis when the emotions calm down.

WELL THE PROBLEM WITH THIS is when will our emotional free period show up.

There have been 17 school shootings this year alone and we are only in mid-February!

………………………………………

But rest assured that the gun issue CAN’T BE DEALT WITH BY CONGRESS AND THE PRESIDENT!

WHY?

Oh my, you still don’t know? Shame on you.

The gun issue can not be changed until we change THE SHOW!

And what’s the show that runs Congress and the President into INACTION?

 

 

KOREAN CRIP ALLOWED INTO TRUMP COUNTRY?

 

If you hadn’t noticed a crippled Korean was allowed into the State of the Union address even though he was a former NORTH KOREAN.

Tubularsock thought we had a WALL to protect us from the “evils” of North Korea!

Come to find out the entire Congress are in favor of North Korean cripples. Or at least it appeared that way with all of them standing up and applauding. Damn!

Now don’t you worry ……. it wasn’t real, it was a sympathetic ploy for war and we ALL can stand united for that! Right?

It is just part of the old “North Korea is so brutal to THEIR OWN CITIZENS” that WE (AMERICA) must “protect” Koreans by bombing them back to the stone age in order to save them from their own evil government.

In a lot of ways it is Trump’s new campaign:

“MAKE MORE KOREANS CRIPPLED AGAIN”.

(Oh sure, Tubularsock has made hats!)

But this isn’t even that creative. It’s the old Iraq weapons of mass distraction ploy. Will Americans be fooled again ….. SO SOON?

Because the words have already been used pushing exactly the same bull shit. It is just OrangeFuck mouthing them.

Flash back to DumbFuckShrub, remember how Shrub explained that the Saddam Hussein regime “. . . ha(d) already used poison gas to murder thousands of its own citizens . . .”? (Of course after the Reagan Administration sold them the chemicals, you know for “farm” use.)

You see, this kind of imagery is the stepping stones to preparing the American citizens for another WAR to save humanity.

After all, we have to attack them there rather than have them right here in OUR HOMELAND!

 

Remember how this works?

But really, it’s too late!

“OUR”(?) President has already LET IN a North Korean Crip! They are already here!

But as President Dump put it, “North Korea’s reckless pursuit of nuclear missiles could very soon threaten our homeland . . .” He left out the classic line “in the shape of a mushroom cloud” that the Shrub Team used so effectively. Too bad.

And those North Koreans have AT LEAST one or two nukes compared to the U.S. nuclear arsenal which if placed end to end would reach to Mars and back BUT IT IS those North Koreans that are dangerous!

Hell somebody might REALLY USE THEM on civilians!

Oh, yeah ……. we already have …….. twice!

So why is Tubularsock supposed to be scared again?

Well, there IS A REASON TO BE SCARED …………………

President OrangeTweet picked Dr. Victor Cha for nomination as the U.S. Ambassador to South Korea.

Cha was vetted and has been approved by South Korea as well. Cha is a very capable and knowledgeable choice to be Ambassador and as American Ambassadors go maybe overqualified if there is such a thing.

So for OrangeTweet to pick him was a surprise to Tubularsock.

BUT as the world turns …….. a few days ago Cha was pulled from the list by the Trump Administration.

WHY? Sure you asked!

Because in private Dr. Victor Cha expressed concerns about a military strike approach to North Korea!

Well good bye, Victor!

It appears that the Trump Administration believes that a “bloody nose” strategy on North Korea is all that it will take to keep North Korea in line.

And the “bloody nose” strategy goes like this:

If in the future North Korea does a missile test or other provocative act the American response would be a carefully targeted attack on a North Korean military facility. But this is exactly why North Korea wants nuclear weapons! North Korea doesn’t want to be Syria or Iraq where the U.S. can bomb anytime it gets upset!. No, with nuclear weapons …….. the warmongering Americans have to think twice.

HAVING nuclear weapons keeps from being attacked at the whim of the U.S.! What is so difficult to understand here?

Now if one reverses this Trump-esque insanity:

If the U.S. happened to do something that North Korea took as a provocative act and North Korea responded by “carefully targeting” a U.S. ship to show their disapproval, just what do you think the U.S.response would be?

Yep!

So, how can it be assumed that an irrational Kim Jong-un, as he is portrayed, would take it all in stride and not assume that this “selected rational limited attack” wasn’t a full out attack and in response start a war that kills hundreds of thousands of North and South Korean civilians and large numbers of US troops in a matter of hours?

AND THE ENVELOPE PLEASE ……………….

BOOOOOOOOM!

 

Tubularsock doesn’t want any of you to “drop the ball” but no matter what the NFL does doesn’t really matter very much.

However North Korea is under the belief that our current Orange-Small-Penis-Professional-Tweeter-President has declared WAR on them.

Now where would Kim get that idea?

 

Shit for brains Donald just can’t shut the fuck up. As a world embarrassment Trump takes the chocolate cake. And somebody is going to get killed.

Now if Kim and his boys could hit Mar-a-Lago while Trump and his entire family was visiting Tubularsock would even help North Korea with the coordinates and put a big ol’ X on the spot. But Google Maps would work just as well. And then Tubularsock wouldn’t be hauled into the hoosegow as a accessory. Now just forget Tubularsock even brought this up and take this blog you have in front of you and slip it into Jared’s private emails he has been using to correspond to White House staff a-la-Hillary!

Tubularsock feels so much better. GO KOREA! RAH!

But it’s not even the real problem. The real problem is that Michael Flynn, Jared Kushner, Stephen Bannon met with Saudi King Abdullah in secret, according to recently released documents, to discuss high-stake contracts to sell nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia. This discussion had to do with their personal business interest. Not government business.

As one nuclear expert put it, selling nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia is like selling “a nuclear weapons starter kit”.

“Any proposal to introduce dozens of nuclear reactors to the Middle East, particularly Saudi Arabia, raises many proliferation red flags . . . The Saudis do not need nuclear power and them gaining access could lead to dangerous consequences down the road.”
(Daryl Kimball, Arms Control Association ….. BuzzFeed)

But that didn’t seem to bother Flynn, Kushner, and Bannon! You know they worked for Trump, The Art of the Deal!

Now Tubularsock wants to be fair here. It isn’t just Trump business, remember who helped to introduce nuclear technology to Iraq ……. Dick Cheney and Halliburton.

And funny fact ……. Cheney did it EVEN THOUGH it was against the law OF THE UNITED STATES to sell nuclear technology to Iraq! Another The Art of the Deal!

You see, there is making money and there is protecting the country. When it is making money THEY are all over it!

When it comes to protecting the country (their business interests) YOUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS ARE SENT TO DO THAT JOB!

AND WHAT IS STILL AMAZING TO TUBULARSOCK: YOU CONTINUE TO WAVE THE FUCKING FLAG AS THEY HELP KILL YOUR CHILDREN FOR THEIR PROFIT!

JUST HOW FUCKING STUPID ARE YOU AMERICA ……….

 

 

LET’S WAR SOME MORE!

Well thank the Gods that THAT’S OVER!

Another 9/11 has hit the history dust bin again and we are still in the dark over just which Saudi and Carlyle Group investment scheme helped to do it.

 

But hell that is water under the bridge so really who cares anyway. Everybody is dead and buried and what in the fuck do they want, they all got a gillion dollar memorial and tourist book store!

We’ve got bigger fish to fry!

And by golly we’ll poke somebody with a stick hard enough to have them attack say like a rowboat floating next to the USS BULLSHIT and we’ll have that UNIFYING WAR each president starts to rally the citizen behind the president. NO MATTER HOW FUCKING STUPID HE HAPPENS TO BE!

And before you anal retentive Trumpites get all pushed out of shape over the above sentence, well it refers to Baby Shrub and the gaggle of assholes that occupied his administration.

Not that Orange Tweet isn’t attempting to corner the market on “STUPID” but Shrub beat him to it on this subject.

And it is true that once the “General” took over as “Chief of Staff” Orange Tweet is learning to bend over for the neocons so ALL IS GOOD in dip-shit-land.

So will it be North Korea? Russia? China? Nope, everyone is tried of hearing about them already. Boring!

 

 

No we have to have another Grenada! You remember 1983 and the proposed THREAT TO THE UNITED STATES by the Caribbean Island of Grenada, right?

Parkinson-riddled-brain-dead-Ronald-Reagan sent in 10,000 American troops to protect the U.S. against several hundred lightly armed policemen and Cuban construction workers.

The U.S. military lost 19 and incurred 116 injuries during the eight day “war” but peace came at last and Paul Scoon was reinstated as the Governor-General of Grenada who represented the monarch, Queen Elizabeth II.

And of course the American public supported the invasion even though it was a flagrant violation of international law. Because the United States is a government of laws not of men. Or so the story is told. Go figure that out.

BUT WE WON! And this was our “brave?” military’s first operation conducted after our Grand War with Vietnam which we LOST at pretty much ever criteria one could list.
So you can see how important the War With Grenada (WWG) was then. We really are winners, no really we are, and our military will kill unarmed men, women and children in any number to prove it!

So presently we have an entire 5 sided building filled with dedicated workers finding just the “right” place to attack next in the name of freedom.

Hell we need a win!

 

 

 

OUTSOURCED ARMY

THEY HAVE TO BE KIDDING!

Orange Tweet is really an inspiration for the advancement of stupidity. No not because of his tweet attention-span, nor his small limp hands and bigly butt. No those are just side line embarrassing.

When President Orange Tweet says he wants to make America Great Again he doesn’t mean 1940’s or 1950’s GREAT! No he means British Empire Great like 17 and 18 hundreds GREAT! Viceroy Great. And who says you can’t go backward!

And you all know how the “free market system” works right? You know competition brings the price down, right? And because of that, government needs to “privatize” many of its agencies because the private sector can do it cheaper than the government can do it.

Take for example, WAR. If the United States privatizes its military then what money we can all save ……… such a deal.

Now this isn’t a Trump idea. He doesn’t have the ability to think let alone creatively. No this goes way back as far as war itself. Some people fight and some people supply the fighters. And just for fun, stop and guess who gets rich and who gets dead.

And the capitalistic system has improved upon this basic idea a thousand fold by adding the investing class to the mix. Now there are those who fight the war, those who supply the fighters, AND those who INVEST in the suppliers who supply the fighter who fight the war. See, that is called capitalism because the investing class are even further away from being dead from war but profit the most from it. Clever yes?

Now check this out. The military-industrial-complex has come up with this really fun idea and that is to privatize armies so the U.S. Government can save money.

We have already been doing this over there is that hostile Middle East and in Africa as well. But this savings is really a deal!

Funny that. Presently a “private soldier” (once called a mercenary) makes in salary about three times more than an American soldier. So the salary cost of the mercenary army would be THREE TIME HIGHER than it is now.

Would you care to venture a guess how this cost alone is cheaper?

And then you have the “standard” corporate operational costs for maintaining a mercenary army with the small problem of loyalty to MONEY rather than any insane patriotic reasoning so as to have the added burden of losing your “army” to the highest bidder.

Damn tricky, eh?

Now the U.S. has already had this continuous problem in the mercenary terrorists we have hired, trained and supplied just to have them jump sides and end up fighting us rather than doing as we paid them to do. Some of this has been based on deceit and some of this is due to a better deal going down.

When money is the bases of the commitment the playing field changes and your terrorists buddy today is your terrorist enemy tomorrow based on a couple of bucks.

 

And just who is pushing this insane idea?

Well the Bowery Boys, Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner, formally known as the Dead End Kids for you movie buffs.

Erik Prince the founder of the murdering thugs Blackwater Worldwide and Stephen Feinberg, a billionaire financier who owns the giant military contractor DynCorp International and Tubularsock believes sucks out babies brains for lunch (warning: this latter thought may be an alterNUT fact, be advised!) have offered up their proposals at Bannon’s and Kushner’s request.

Wow, Tubularsock just wonders with these four minds coming together, “What Could Possibly Go Wrong?”

Now Tubularsock, in case you haven’t noticed, wants to remind you that after 16 years WE ARE STILL MAKING WAR ON AFGHANISTAN.

You remember Afghanistan, right? The country right after 9/11 we started a war with.
And just to remind you how we did that it went down like this:

Bush and the boys and the bitch told the Taliban that they would have to hand over Osama bin Laden to the U.S. for the 9/11 crime or we would BOMB THEM!

The Taliban agreed to hand over Osama bin Laden to the U.S. for the 9/11 crime if and when the United States provided PROOF that Osama bin Laden was guilty of this crime. You remember that silly notion, a man is innocent until PROVEN guilty don’t you?

That is a fundamental legal principle of the United States not Afghanistan!

Well, the United States didn’t have any proof that he was directly involved.  He said he wasn’t involved in 9/11 directly. And to this day there has been no real proof that he was directly involved EXCEPT for the forged CIA tape prominently promoted on YouTube! But it was well known that bin Laden was a CIA asset so Tubularsock figures that it depends on which side of the fence he was working at any given time.

So we bomb them! And then we bomb them. And then we bomb them ……………  And even the old cliche that we were going to bomb them back into the Stone Age was used by some but they hadn’t left the Stone Age so they didn’t seem to noticed except all their wedding parties we annihilated. Oh, and their women and children were slaughtered but hey, THAT’S WAR don’t ya know!

Just reminds one of the callousness of war. Those who were murdered on 9/11 are precious souls but those we blow apart in Afghanistan are just collateral damage and how dare they run under our bombs! They act like they live there!

So now, 16 years of quagmire and Trump is thinking to “fix” Afghanistan by spending billions and billions of more dollars for a cheap fix: MERCENARY ARMIES provided by private enterprise corporations.

And they are even thinking of picking an American Viceroy who would directly report to Trump and run the Afghanistan mission with an outsourced army and a mission of “do whatever it takes to pacify Afghanistan”!

From Tubularsock’s point of view it is refreshing to have the lunatic fringe right out there in the open for a change unlike Killary’s style or Obomba’s style of putting up the false-bull-shit-front but still fucking you up the ass! But which of these elite assholes are more dangerous is a toss up!
