Could we blast music to flush out the dictator?

The US military has used that tactic in the past, with positive results. What music would he hate the most?

In deference to diplomatic protocol, U.S. forces did not enter the embassy. But they did concoct a plan to smoke out Noriega, who died Monday at the age of 83. The plan involved music, mostly heavy metal and rock, with a few ballads thrown in. It was blasted on loud speakers, at deafening volumes, around the clock.

1. Fat Nixon probably hates most music, but the music from "Hamilton"

might be especially annoying for him. Music can be an effective weapon; country music will drive me out of any room very quickly. It's like auditory tear gas.

3. No need.

Just close the entrances and don't send the staff in to cook and clean for him. That and cutting the cable and his cell phone service ought to do it in 24 hours.

5. Austin Lounge Lizards

They did an album years ago called "Simple Minds" and it was about the GOP embeciles surround Newt Gingrich. It fits perfectly with what is going on today.

8. Waco: dentists' drills, locomotives, helicopters hov- ering, loud obnoxious music,"Christmas songs

That evening, a loudspeaker barrage began. Among the items blasted on the loudspeakers were the sounds of dentists' drills, locomotives, helicopters hovering, loud obnoxious music,"Christmas songs, Tibetan Buddhist chants, previously recorded negotiations,'" squawking birds, cows mooing, clocks ticking, telephone busy signals, and the cries of rabbits being killed."

It's Donald Fucking Trump.

If you want to get under his skin, make the music as "black" as it gets.
