Operation Gladio: 'The future of US terror?'

Operation Gladio

With the coming threats of a nuclear attack within the United States and a history of domestic terror within the nation, one must ask; Could we have done this ourselves?'. I believe the answer to that is a very merky and clansdestine truth. We know there exhists the possibility of foreign and domestic intelligence and clandestine service agencys operating through terror. But to what extent and can we put to face the shadowy names of this cabal?

I believe that there exhists a new hybrid campartmentalized group out there that stemmed from Operation Gladio.

Operation Gladio is undisputed historical fact. Gladio was part of a post-World War II program set up by the CIA and NATO supposedly to thwart future Soviet/communist invasions or influence in Italy and Western Europe. In fact, it became a state-sponsored right-wing terrorist network, involved in false flag operations and the subversion of democracy.

After the end of the cold war there had been a string of attacks such as the April 5th, 1986 bombing of the disco club in Berlin. Also the August 2, 1980 bombing of the Bologna train station which killed 85 people. Having nearly 15,000 troops under the command of Operation Gladio, they could be mobilized through the CIA-MI6 should the Italian government 'stray too far' from NATO and UN ideals. All under the guise of soviet and post-fascists rebels.

Many members of Operation Gladio were also in a shadowy organization known as P-2; it too was financed by the CIA. P-2 had connections with the Vatican and the Mafia, and eventually with an international fascist umbrella organization called the World Anti-Communist League.
One of P-2's specialties was the art of provocation. Leftist organizations like the Red Brigades were infiltrated, financed and / or created, and the resulting acts of terrorism, like the assassination of Italy's premier in 1978 and the bombing of the railway station in Bologna in 1980, were blamed on the left. The goal of this "strategy of tension" was to convince Italian voters that the left was violent and dangerous-by helping make it so.

- London 7/7 bombings 'another Gladio style operation?'

Most of these attacks were blamed on dissident groups with Europe such as the 'Red Brigades' which were an italian fascist revolutionary group. Calling for the end of italian invlovement with NATO, it makes for an easy scapegoat.

After the end of the cold war the CIA, MI6 and other intelligence agencys were involved in 'stay behind' units that would deal with social unrest. Due in fact to the soviet aggression and the 'spread of communism' to european states. These units under Gladio would provoke fear and panic forcing the populace to ask for protection from their government. This government in turn would answer to the UN and NATO umbrella governments. All of this was done through the means of false flag terror.

I believe that after the inception of Gladio and the coming decades, this idea of 'stay behind' units that would deal with formerly cummunism and now terrorism still exhists. Under what name and function they have is yet to be determined.

When we hear about the new nuclear threat to the United States through domestic terrorism it is easy to see how an operation such as Gladio could persist and continue to exhist in the post 9/11 world. But when we have been subject ot numerous attacks within the united states such as the Oklahoma city bombing, it is not so far fetched to look further and ask deeper questions, especially when the legacy of 'Gladio' still lingers.

But nukes are so yesterday don't you think !

They were invented when we were running around on steam trains and yet here we are 75 years later still thinking they are the worse weapons ever invented and yet natral virius have killed 1000's time more than bombs and nukes togeather.

Thorw in a little bio-tech and you have your real threat also known as the poor mans nuke.

I don't claim to know but i suspect pakistand is quite able to release an agent into the air that would take out half the worlds population in no time and to me this is why the worlds races are being mixed togeather as they are so any attack would involve killing your own people too not that this small fact stoped the zionists during WWII.

Technoliogy is always 20 years ahead of where you think it is and when you mix bio-tech with nano tech your are left with something that makes nukes about as good as bows and arrows.

WWIII won't be fought in front lines but will be fought in hospitals that can hardly cope with an outbreak of flu as it is.

All just a theory of course

I agree that the third war will be a very subversive one. Using groups that fall under the umbrella of entities like Gladio makes it all the more plausable. My only concern is that we will be unable to identify these 'shadow warriors' and bring an end to the type of subversion and destruction that they bring to our way of life.

Look at the after effects of 9/11, it completely shaped the early 21st century in the most negative way. And it was done entirely without our input. That is what defined previous generations, the average man had a say in the outcome, or at least had an small ripple of influence on his surroundings. Today the influence we make on the world as a shadow; falsehood illusion that we pretend is reality. When in actuality it is black ops units that push and pull the giant wheel of life in one direction or the other.

Shame on them, shame on us.
