STOP GIVING THE U.N. A PASS- DO YOUR JOB, STOP THE WAR GROWING IN SYRIA NOW


Time to boot Turkey out of the NATO alliance…
Visalia, CA 93277, 10-15-2019 Tuesday:  Well, all hell is breaking loose in the Middle East and once again, Donald J. Trump is the scumbag behind it.  Now, it’s not me saying it, it’s his critics, right and left, who leap atop anything they can and begin ripping and slashing and tearing away at the guy for being little more than an evil POS.  Well, the man who is causing trouble in the region at the moment is the dictator of Turkey, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan[i].  If you want to blame anyone, blame this slimy piece of crap because he envisions himself the new caliph of all Islam as once the Ottoman Empire was, back before they became the inbred camel-thieving scum they now are.   
President Trump promised to end the cycle of endless wars,[ii] the ones that maim and kill some of the country’s best and brightest while a large segment of the American population has little to no skin in the game.  I think if we are going to commit U.S. forces abroad, we should bring back the draft as everyone should spend either two years in one of the nation’s military branches including the U.S. Merchant Marines or should serve in some sort of peace corps-style organization either here at home or abroad as once many did.
Now, we understand there is a big segment of our ruling class that grows fat off the endless wars that rage around the world.  They also self-enrich through investment in all the various American and foreign industries that manufacture and distribute the weapons of war.  Warfare is extremely profitable if one can overlook the loss of life and that is the reason as to why I believe so many politicians and businessmen-and-women screech and rail about President Trump ‘abandoning the Kurds.’[iii] 
I am not clear as to HOW one to two hundred American troops has been able to keep the Turks on their side of the border.  Not sure but would love it if someone would explain it to me so I understand along with the readership. 
If anything, Turkey should NOT be a member of NATO (see how they are now crying that Article 5[iv] is required so all of NATO will help them in a war with the Kurds and Syria and thus Russia they have now started) because since the thug Recep Tayyip Erdoğan took office, he has turned the country into an anti-Western, anti-NATO entity that feels closer to the Russians more than it does to the Europeans, the Americans and Canadians. 
The fact that the Kurds rushed over to Damascus to beg the help of Bashar al-Assad[v] and his depleted military to fight against the Turks threatens to throw the entire region in a maelstrom of flying lead, exploding bombs, bloodshed, violence, death, and suffering. 
The Russians support Assad as do the Iranians while the Russians are a de facto ally of Turkey, too, so which way will the Russians flip?  I cannot see the Russians stepping over the sidelines and watching this conflict as spectators, I think they will support Assad, Tehran, and the Kurds because what better way to throw friction into NATO and devastate the southern flank of the alliance. 
We all know that Turkey and Russia have never been close to one another and when the Turks were the Ottomans, there were wars back and forth between the two.  Some historians say that in World War II, that prior to the U.S. airstrikes on the Ploesti[vi] oilfields in Axis ally Romania, the Turks were preparing to enter the war against the Soviet Union on behalf of the Nazis and their Axis allies as they sought to reclaim a wide swath of the southern USSR where Turkic peoples were dominant. 
Once the U.S. attacked the Ploesti oilfields, the Turks understood that nowhere in their region would they be immune from Allied air attacks and so remained a silent and helpful partner to Nazi Germany until the war turned against Hitler and then they slowly extricated themselves from their mutually beneficial ‘association.’
I think Russia will help Assad as they always have and will work with the Iranians to quell whatever gains the Turks seek to make and will help propel them back across their borders.  I do not see why this should be our fight, I only see we need to keep forces near to Israel, in Egypt, in Saudi Arabia, in Jordan, and in the Gulf States to prevent and prohibit Iranian hegemony in the area. 
I also think that once again, EVERYONE overlooks the United Nations.  How does the organization built atop the ashes of the Second World War to SOLVE global conflict, how do these Third World tadpoles get away with NOT doing what they were created to do?  I mean, come on, this is precisely what the leaders of the globe back in the 1940s created the United Nations to do and I say that unless they step up and do it, then we should do what people in the United States have long sought them to do and that is to get the flipping hell out of the U.S.[vii] and go somewhere else…like Moscow.   
In my eyes, the U.N. is a worthless organization.  In my eyes, it is not up to us to police the border between Syria and Turkey when the Democrats don’t want us to police our own.  In my eyes, the Iranians and the Russians and the Syrians can do what must be done with the ISIS ‘POWS’ and that is to line them up and shoot them down like the miserable dogs that they are[viii].
As for Mr. Erdoğan, you, sir, are a piece of bubble gum stuck to the bottom of one’s shoe.  I hope your people string you up to the nearest lamppost and that Turkey returns to the fold of civilized nations instead of seeking to be a junior member of the Axis of Evil[ix].  Yes, that organization is alive, well, and in need of being castrated.
See you tomorrow.

The above cartoonish caricature of me by Bakersfield, California, by up-and-coming street artist, Simone, resembles me back in the 1980's when I was an Executive Sous Chef at a hotel in Monterey, California, 10-20 years later.  I originally came from Salinas, California, spent time in Fresno and Bakersfield, and currently am working at a fine-dining restaurant in Visalia, California.  I began cooking in 1967 when I apprenticed under a top chef working in the Napa Valley.

[i] Since this man became the dictator of Turkey, Turkey has moved out of the NATO camp and into bed with the Russians and the Islamists.  He pictures himself as the REAL leader of the Islamic (‘religion of peace’) caliphate and he will put his government and his nation in jeopardy in allowing his country’s military to bite off far more than it can true.  People of Turkey, throw this scumbag out NOW.
[ii] President Trump promised to stop the Endless Wars which seem to rage all over the place.  How long must we maintain troops around the world?  We are not the policemen of the world so let’s extricate ourselves from all the places in which, we currently find ourselves and let’s demand that the United Nations do the job it was created to do; otherwise, throw them out of the country ASAP.
[iii] Since when did the Syrian Kurds become a lifelong ally?  We fought with them to destroy ISIS and yes, ISIS could come back; however, it is up to the people who live in the region as well as the Europeans to do something instead of relying on us to solve all their problems.  Enough is enough.
[iv] Article 5 says if one member of NATO is attacked, all are attacked.  Well, Turkey was not nonchalant in this situation, they are the ones who started the war in Syria so if the Syrians, the Kurds, the Russians, and the Iranians throw them out and topple the Turkish dictator, so be it. 
[v] Bashar al-Assad and his military might be weakened but when it comes to slaying Turks and throwing them out of Syria, they are more than up to it.  Watch out Turkey!
[vi] The U.S. Army Air Force strike on the Ploesti oilfields was one of the boldest moves during World War II when planes flying out of North Africa flew into the Balkans and attacked the Axis-held massive oil field complex in Rumania.  Operation Tidal Wave occurred on August 01, 1943
[vii] I remember seeing billboards as a kid that said, “Get the U.S. out of the U.N. or get the U.N. out of the U.S.”  Back in the early 1960s, everyone understood that the UN was a bullshit organization where Third World scum sat in judgment of the West and demanded we do everything to solve their problems.  Screw ‘em.
[viii] The uniform rules on warfare have always denied irregular forces- i.e., guerillas, terrorists, spies, and other out-of-uniform combatants the rights afforded to POWs.  The thing to do with the ISIS POWs is to shoot all of them and decide if the families require the same treatment.  If the nations of their birth won’t take them back, kill all of them.
[ix] Originally, the Axis of Evil (to George W. Bush) consisted of Iran, Iraq, and North Korea with Syria a junior member.  Now, I would add Turkey to the mix and all the terrorist groups, ISIS, Hamas, Hezbollah, and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Posted @ the Tuesday, January 22, 2013 Blog Post:







Today’s Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention album is their second album, “Absolutely Free,” which the band released on May 26, 1967.  Like their first album, “Freak Out,” the band proved that they were indeed unique among the stable of artists at Warner Brothers Records and had absolutely nothing that AM radio deejays could play.  FM Radio, however, was perfect for them and this album blazed up its charts.  The lineup featured Frank Zappa (guitars/vocals, arranger), Jimmy Carl Black (drums/vocals/percussion), Ray Collins (percussion/vocals), Roy Estrada (bass/vocals), and Don Preston (keyboards) along with some other phenomenal musicians to provide a unique sound. Great music and a definite must for all serious collectors of the band and of the musical times, you can buy this CD now simply picking it up at your favorite site for the best in rock music.


Posted @ the Tuesday, September 09, 2014 Blog Post B:






Mott the Hoople released their next archival live album entitled, “A Tale of Two Cities Live” on June 12, 2001. This album features the original band live at the point they began breaking out and approaching international success.  This is a great album that captures the band at its best, which is why we encourage the fans of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day to seek this one out by visiting whatever site you do for nothing but the best in rock-and-roll music.   We think you will enjoy it.
