SO YOU WANT A WAR
Have you ever been in a situation where you turn on the kitchen lights in the middle of the night to retrieve a glass of water and the floor is alive with a flurry of rapidly moving cockroaches?
Have you ever wondered where those cockroaches “hang out” during the day?
THINK TANKS, that is where they hang out.
Yep, that’s where.
And how does Tubularsock know?
Elementary, Dr Watson ……….. observation and deduction, observation and deduction.
The first sign that we are in trouble is that the hopefully dead come alive.
America turns on the TV and the living dead himself, Dick Cheney and his mummified wife, Lynn are sitting side by side pontificating on how the Bush Administration had handed Iraq over to Obama at the peak of success after that surge and all.
And just how Obama had dropped the ball and BECAUSE of that turned Iraq’s “freedom” into a Civil War not a war of liberation and democracy.
Fun side note: Tubularsock contacted Monsanto to see if they had any kind of a deadly poisonous, venomous, toxic, noxious, fatal, lethal, mortal-death-dealing spray that would kill an un-dead-Cheney and his mummified wife, Lynn.
Sorry to say, EVEN Monsanto hasn’t developed something that powerful but their GMO soybeans are very close.
The interesting thing about un-dead Dick and his mummified wife, Lynn is that they live in an alternate reality and Dick is so convinced that his alternate reality is “real” that he conveys that reality onto people who are easily deceived.
Now this all works because most people will follow an un-dead Cheney rather than look at the facts.
AND THE SAME FACTS EXIST TODAY AS THEY DID WHEN BUSH AND THE BOYS AND THAT TROLLOP CONDOLEEZZA RICE all disregarded the reality that was Iraq for some mis-calculated obsessive Dungeon and Dragon game.
Now, Tubularsock will make it simple for you …………
Remember when we “shocked and awed” Iraq and in the middle of all that mess George-the-Dumber finally figured out that Iraq was comprised of Sunnis and Shiites and Kurds.
George-the-Dumber was not all that swift on foreign policy remember and was the type of American that thinks Africa is a country!
That being said everyone knew AT THE TIME that there were plans in the works to attack Iraq even before the 9/11 “attack”. That information was available and discussed on the edges of political circles. Even Tubularsock knew and discussed it in the newsletter he was writing at the time and let me assure you that despite the photographic evidence to the contrary ……… Tubularsock is no “insider”!
Now remember, Saddam Who’s-sane(?) was a brutal dictator that the U.S. created and supported. It was the U.S. (The Reagan Administration) that provided the chemical weapons to him that he used on the Kurds.
Saddam held Iraq together by being so fucking brutal that the TRADITIONAL HATRED between the Sunnis and Shiites was overshadowed by that strong-arm brutality. That is what kept Iraq as a country. Saddam was in truth a secularist actually. He believed that the State was more important than Islam per se. However, he was considered to be a Sunni Muslim since he came from a Sunni family. You just can’t get away from your family no matter how brutal you are! Think of that next time you visit your mother!
And then Bush and the boys and that trollop Condoleezza Rice decided to attack Iraq and as we all know …….. when you break Humpty-Dumpty, “all the kings horses and all the kings men” can’t put him back together again.
So trillions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of lost lives later and we are back once again with the same cockroaches that lied us into this mess blabbing away on how to fix Humpty-Dumpty and blaming everyone else for their gigantic failure.
What we have discovered is that we were not greeted as “liberators” as Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz and Vice President Cheney said we would be.
It took longer than six months as Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld had projected.
And there were no WMD’s and no connection between Saddam and the 9/11 “attack”.
But all of that was KNOWN in March 2003 …….. how?
Elementary, Dr. Watson ……….. observation and deduction, observation and deduction.
But you know all of this yourself and if you didn’t ……. now you do but Tubularsock has led you here for a reason and that reason is for some information that you may not know.
Or at least not remember.
Who is backing all this terrorism? Oh sure, the CIA is playing two sides against the middle as usual but there are other players in the Middle Eastern sand box and a great deal of funding to support this conglomerate of terrorists groups come from none-other than our so called Middle Eastern allies, and the “ financial contributions” are funneled through the banking system in Kuwait.
According to Andrew Tabler, senior fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (a think tank): “Kuwait’s banking system and its money changers have long been a huge problem because they are a major conduit for money to extremist groups in Syria and now Iraq.” (Not like the U.S. CIA hasn’t.)
And from The Brookings Institute (another think tank) study of December, 2013: “Over the last two and a half years, Kuwait has emerged as a financing and organizational hub for charities and individuals supporting Syria’s myriad rebel groups.” (Not like the U.S. CIA hasn’t.)
By using Kuwait’s weak financial rules hundreds of millions of dollars have moved through that country from Arab Gulf countries’ donors traveling through Turkey or Jordan to reach a variety of terrorist groups in Syria. (Not like the U.S. CIA hasn’t.)
Now Tubularsock is talking here about Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. For years wealthy donors from those countries have funded The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
But Tubularsock will focus on Saudi Arabia because it is there that the bucks were “invested” that helped to create this entire 9/11 episode. And a major focal point is the Saudi Royal Family. But remember the Saudi’s were not alone!
Do you remember this documented evidence? The Saudi Ambassador to the United States Prince Bandar bin Sultan and his wife “donated” $130,000.00 which found its way to help fund Mohamed Atta. Atta was the lead 9/11 terrorist, who crashed the hijacked plane he piloted into the North Tower.
The Bush family was so close to Bandar that Bush-the-Dumber nicked-named him “Bandar Bush”.
Prince Bandar and President Bush reportedly smoked cigars on the White House balcony while the two men talked about the attacks that occurred just two days before.
AND two days after that was when the Saudis were flown out of the U.S..
You may recall that four days after the planes hit the World Trade Towers in New York and the Pentagon in Washington D.C. the FAA closed down all air space within the United States yet the Bush Administration allowed private jetliners to fly about and pick up Saudis and fly them out of the country. WITHOUT the FBI or anyone else asking any questions.
And one of the jetliners was leased by none-other than our Arch-Enemy Osama bin Laden himself! But NO QUESTIONS WERE ASKED!
You, as an American citizen could not fly to see your ailing grandmother but the bin Laden family and the Saudi Royal Family and their minions were free to fly away.
And don’t forget that 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudis and three of them entered the United States on “expedited-visas” which required no photograph. A system that had been created by the Bush Administration to allow Saudis to enter and exit the U.S. with minimum inconvenience.
Now, add this: “U.S. military sources have given the FBI information that suggests five of the alleged hijackers of the planes that were used in Tuesday’s terror attacks received training at secure U.S. military installations in the 1990s.” (Newsweek)
Three at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Fla., another trained in strategy and tactics at the Air War College in Montgomery, Ala.,and the fifth man received language instruction at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Tex.. (Newsweek)
Oh gosh …… Tubularsock would be remiss if he didn’t remind you that in 2002, Congress investigated the September 11 attacks on the US and released an 800-page report detailing their findings. Remember?
President Bush, for reasons of NATIONAL SECURITY single-handedly censored 28 entire pages of the 800-page Congressional report.
THOSE 28 PAGES DELT WITH THE ROLE OF SAUDI ARABIA IN THE 9/11 ATTACK.
In 2013, two members of the House of Representative, Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) and Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-MA) both read the Bush-censored sections and their public response was that they were “absolutely shocked” by the amount of evidence implicating one of America’s strongest allies in the attack. And guess what country that happens to be in a document dealing with Saudi Arabia?
There is a leaked CIA memo floating around showing that the US government has known all along that it was Saudi Arabia and not the Taliban, al Qaida, Afghanistan or Iraq that attacked America on September 11, 2001.
Of course. Why else would Bush have covered over this 28 pages?
But the real question NOW is why is Obama still not releasing it to the public?
As this bi-partisan team of Representatives concedes, they can’t even tell the American people what country it is “that betrayed us” and was actually behind the attacks on 9/11 without committing treason and going to prison.
But shouldn’t that be what Bush and Obama should be worried about? TREASON?
But far be it for Tubularsock to leave you with all this without letting you know that the Saudi’s are not alone in this world shattering event. There are other culprits as well.
And who you ask, are they?
