Urgent Stock Market Message

Is Operation GLADIO on the rebound in Europe?

Politics / Conspiracy Theory Dec 17, 2011 - 07:59 AM GMT

By: Patrick_Henningsen


Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThirty years ago, Europeans were caught in a seemingly endless story of domestic terror which claimed thousands of lives over a generation – a disturbing epoche which was instrumental in bringing forth the modern domestic police state we have today. We now know that the wave of terror which swept across Europe then was run by a state-sponsored terror program called Operation G.L.A.D.I.O., organised by NATO and funded in part by the CIA.

Enter 2011, and the conditions are similar to that of post WWII Europe and also to the fall of the Iron Curtain in 1990 – where the continent is going through a tremendous social and economic transition period.

As the West presently emerges from its decade-long “war on terror” – a conflict where muslims were the protagonists, they begin to to enter into a harsh new social and economic phase featuring austerity and inequality, and a phase where frightening new ‘domestic enemies’ will be introduced onto the stage.

Already this week we have seen a series of high-profile domestic terror events:

Right-wing Italian gunman killed 2 street vendors from Senegal, wounded three others in racially-motivated attack

Belgium gun and grenade attack kills five and injures 122

Letter bombs sent by Federazione Anarchica Informale (Informal Anarchist Group) to head of Italian tax agency and the CEO of Deutche Bank in Frankfurt

One could say there is certainly a pattern emerging.

Let’s not forget that few short months ago in July 2011 saw the most talked about domestic terror event in a decade, where a 34 year-old Aryan pin-up exteremist named Anders Breivik allegedly went on a car bomb and shooting rampage that claimed the lives of 100 Young Labour activists in Norway. By its nature, the Norway shooting was no random attack. The students victims on the island were chosen for political affiliation- even the wounded were snuffed out in cold blood by the gunman(s), which clearly makes this a cold and targeted mass political assassination.

Webster G. Tarpley reported in his article “Norway Terror Attacks a False Flag,” that Norway was getting ready to call off its support for missions in Libya, and stop its involvement in that ongoing illegal war there as early as this August. Regarding GLADIO, it is highly likely that both NATO and CIA terror cells have been operational in Europe since the end of WWII, and the recent tryst over Libya and other projects could very well be influencing recent events.
GLADIO 2.0 ?
GLADIO was designed as a clandestine NATO ”stay-behind” operation in Italy after World War II, but soon spread all over Europe. Originally, it was formed in order to continue anti-communist actions in the event of a shift to a Communist party led governments in Europe. GLADIO’s domestic terror accomplishments culminated with the spectacular and bloody Bologna Bombing in 1980, killing 85 people and injuring hundreds more. Such terrorist acts were part of NATO’s “strategy of tension” in Italy and throughout Europe.
On November 22, 1990, European Parliament passed a resolution condemning Gladio, requesting full investigations – which have yet to be done – and total dismantlement of these paramilitary structures – which has also yet to be done. Three FOIA requests were filed with GLADIO’s financial sponsor the CIA, who rejected all of them with the standard, ”The CIA can neither confirm nor deny the existence or non-existence of records responsive to your request.” Case closed.
Will all the innocent deaths, no member of NATO or the government has ever been charged over GLADIO, and the network was never officially dismantled. Because of these two important factors, it is not a major leap of logic to suspect that GLADIO 2.0 has been put in play already this year.
Right-wing politics and their movements have been key in forming the current European scene. With Europeans facing a severe economic depression and possibly more wars, Europe may also be experiencing a realignment of its traditional individual right-wing affiliations and positions.
False flag terror events have been used in the past by GLADIO to redefine the left-wing vs right-wing story in Europe. There exist many different definitions of “terrorism”, most have these contain premeditated, politically motivated violence or the threat of violence, targeting civilians, being perceived as a non-state actor, all in the hopes of ”sending a message” – either over the radar, or under the radar – to the general public, influencing the national conversation. A state-sponsored false-flag event can be planned in advance, and maximum public influence can then be extracted by the tragedy. A GLADIO official had once commented about their operation stating that, “Depending on the cases, we would block or encourage far-left or far-right terrorism”.

So is Europe returning to the days when its cities and towns were being ravaged by state-sponsored terror groups like NATO’s Operation GLADIO, and the many groups it had infiltrated: The Red Brigades, IRA, Red Army Faction, Action Directe, Black September, and the PLFP? As the saying goes, ‘Out of that chaos came order’. Are we looking at a new reordering of the social and political landscape in a New Order? In the Eurozone, as in the wider world, it certainly looks that way.
Gladio has been accused of trying to influence policies through the means of “false flag” operations. In Italy during the GLADIO years,  a strategy of tension used to prevent the PCI (Italian Communist Party), and the PSI (Italian Socialist Party) from ever reaching executive power. In 2011, European Union-assigned technocrats have already usurped the sovereignty of both Greece and Italy, installing technocrats (who are also former central bankers) to implement severe austerity measures on an ever-increasingly aware and rebellious public. The social upheaval to this latest technocrat coup could be significant, and one could think of not a better time to reactivate GLADIO in Europe.

This same technique was used to full effect in the global war on terror, and now that the public has lost its ability to remain focused of the global war on terror, social engineers and military psy-warfare experts may be retraining public eyes to focus on the domestic terror threat in order to move forward quickly and efficiently with any plans for a 21st century full-blown Police State.


The Belgium attack this week was originally reported in the local press as the work of THREE, not one attacker, which was confirmed at the scene by Belgium journalist Gaspard Grosien from La Meuse Liege via Bela News Agency.

Later, the reports were streamlined across every media outlet showing only one attacker, a North African man named Nordine Amrani, apparently known to the police for previous drugs and weapons charges.

As the back story to this attack emerges, news consumers will still need to pay attention in order to read between the lines and identify discrepancies and outlandish assumptions present in the consensus reality version of events.

Similarly, Breivik’s black-op in Norway could very well have been executed by not one, but a minimum team of two to three persons. There exist eye-witness reports by survivors of multiple gunmen at the scene, later streamlined by the MSM into a lone gunman story. Readers with military experience might point out how complicated it would be to execute both a car-bomb and a mass murder such as this single-handedly.
Regardless, both these high-profile domestic terror events revolve around the classic ‘Lone Gunman’ narrative. Yet, the public are told to be ever vigilant and to report any suspicious behavior or individuals to the police. In effect, ‘Goldstein is still at large’, and may be in your area, so keep all doors and windows locked.

Readers should note that GLADIO was officially active only 20 years ago, not a long time in terms of politics and the military.
The Italian shooting of two African immigrants and the Norway shooting talking points are a few things in common, and these ideas are already being circulated through society as we speak. Besides the obvious: We need more security + Gun ownership is dangerous, there is the baiting of traditional right-wing fear mongering at play where the experts are asking the following: Could Right-wing thinkers could be dangerous? + Has multiculturalism in Europe finally back-fired?
As sectarian conflicts breakout in regions like Kosovo- and also in Africa and the Middle East, we may see domestic disturbances also break out in ex-pat ethnic pockets around Europe, further fueling the illusion of a Europe strangled by the fumes of domestic terror.

Ecomnonic collapse and severe austerity will most certainly bring on social upheaval and change in Europe. And the social engineers will most certainly- as they have done in the past – use state-sponsored domestic terror to guide the public through their latest social rat maze.
An educated guess: GLADIO 2.0 is in motion.
