I did a search and didn't see this-forgive me if a thread already exists on it.
"Archived documents have revealed that Mussolini, who ruled his country with fear and forged a disastrous alliance with Nazi Germany, got his start
in politics in 1917 with the help of a £100 weekly wage from MI5.
Mussolini, then a 34-year-old journalist, worked to ensure that Italy continued to fight alongside the allies in the First World War by publishing
propaganda in his paper, the Guardian reports. He was also willing to send Italian army veterans to beat up peace protesters in Milan. "
I think this puts a whole new spin on things. Another fine example of The West propping someone up only to have to face off with them later....
