A situation during which a pre-planned event goes horribly wrong and demonstrates a total lack of communication, coordination, and forethought. Generally, this requires either of two parties, one being in a management or planning role that performs inadequate preparation and the other a participant that is utterly incompetent. The result is absolute chaos and failure. In a military context, this is any activity involving A) Iraqis, B) Afghanis, or C) the US Department of State. The involvement of two or more of these participants can result in an increase in fuckery several magnitudes greater than one alone.
I was assigned to lead a coalition mission to reestablish educational facilities in Durkastan. I knew it was going to be a "goat rodeo" when a douchebag in a suit walked into our tent and said "I'm with State, I'll be in charge from now on".
