Fucked up beyond all repair
As in a failed military operation which got pwned

Fucked Up beyond All Recognition. Generally used in the context of a situation/operation/mission that is messed up so bad it is beyond salvaging. FUBAR comes after ATFU. Also generally used when describing something that is akin to a Monkey Shit Fight.
When I started working for this company, I just figured their M.O. was SNAFU, however, after a few months, I realized they were just ATFU, now given their current state, they are FUBAR.

Mititary + now general usage for fucking up big time!
Fucked up beyond all recognition! - F.U.B.A.R (FUBAR)
Thought of this cos done a couple in the last 24hrs :-( I'm on 5.41, but a classic example of defining the word starts around 6.20. The pilot describes one major fuck-up........FUBAR!!
Was the first time i'd heard it, but understand it comes from the German word 'Furchtbar'

I know it a little different:
Like when you try to save some money on a tune up and, in the process of doing it yourself, break your distributor body and, in the process of putting in a new distributor got the timing all out of place so the car won't run and breaks down twenty miles from home in the middle of the night. In that instance you would tell the towtruck driver "Well, I guess I fubar'd that damn thing (At least that's what I told my tow truck driver when I did it).
