The capitalization upon the Psychology of Fear to implement the 'War on Terrorism' du jour was best demonstrated in Operation Gladio of yesteryear when self-inflicted terror by NATO's Stay Behind Armies was used to keep the fear of Communism alive among the skeptical public in Western Europe. Watch the BBC Ch 02 Time Watch 3-part series on Operation Gladio below. Despite being a much sanitized version of manufactured terror to push a global political agenda in Western Europe, namely the fear of communism taking over, the BBC documentary is still very revealing as an ex post facto narrative. There is much that can be learnt from it to comprehend the often confusing current affairs of today before this epoch too passes on into future history as fait accompli. History evidently repeats itself in spades. Part-3 of the Gladio documentary has the following statement quoted from the US Army's Top Secret Field Manual:
“Top Secret: There may be times when host country governments show passivity or indecision in the face of Communist subversion ... US Army Intelligence must have the means of launching special operations which will convince host country governments and public opinion of the reality of the insurgent danger ... US Army Intelligence should seek to penetrate the insurgency by means of agents of special assignments, with the task of forming special action groups among the most radical elements of the insurgency.”
Replacing “Communist subversion” with “Islamofascist terror” can be a revealing exercise. Daniele Ganser's 2005 book: NATO's Secret Armies: Operation GLADIO and Terrorism in Western Europe, further extends that revelation of the diabolical modus operandi of self-inflicted and manufactured terror. A careful study of the Operation Gladio video and Daniele Ganser's book can shed considerable motivational light upon the wanton terrorism madness of today. Especially upon the senseless terrorism spreading in the name of “insurgency” and blamed on the patsies wielding “Islamofascist terror” all along the “arc of crisis” and throughout the “Global zone of percolating violence”. That map of “percolating violence” was most Machiavellianly drawn by Zbigniew Brzezinski in his 1996 book: The Grand Chessboard – American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives. Students and scholars of security and terrorism studies who populate NGOs and thinktanks throughout the world, let alone the journalists and commentators who occupy the public mind, evidently remain unaware of this diabolical modus operandi of self-inflicted terror and its deft perception management by the Mighty Wurlitzer. The political and intellectual leaders of the victim nations worldwide bearing the full brunt of lethal terrorism, insurgency, and revolutions, evidently also remain clueless.
Without this knowledge and understanding of recent history of “imperial mobilization” and quest for “full spectrum dominance” when it is “uncongenial to democratic instincts” and must be carried out diabolically under the facade of “a truly massive and widely perceived direct external threat”, the motivation for the perpetual War Agenda of today simply cannot be unlayered. And without perceptively comprehending and unlayering that motivation which comes fully wrapped in layers of deception, no effective self-defence against these angels of death can be instituted. Whether the national leaders, academic scholars, and security analysts et. al., are incompetent and poor students of modern history despite their high-falutin credentials, or are in on the grand design, each according to their narrow station and utility as useful idiot, is for the reader to adjudicate.
Virtually all larger than life terrorist acts worldwide, from the “terror central” which is Pakistan to the United States' 9/11, London's 7/7 to India's 26/11, and Afghanistan to the Middle East, the so called asymmetric warfare between non-state actors creating “insurgency” and the state-machinery's heavy-handed response called “counter-insurgency”, both designed to augment the perpetually drummed-up international threat of “rogue-states” destroying the civilized world with their ill-gotten WMDs, are part and parcel of that same calculus of “imperial mobilization”. The Machiavellian import of Zbigniew Brzezinski's statement in The Grand Chessboard: “But the pursuit of power is not a goal that commands popular passion, except in conditions of a sudden threat or challenge to the public's sense of domestic well-being.”, suddenly takes on real empirical dimensions from mere words in an imperial paperback, and in about the same ominous measure as Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf blueprinting the machinations to orchestrate and engineer German consent for The Third Reich. Such modus operandi from the Machiavellian pages of modern statecraft cannot be a surprise to competent observers, intellectuals, bureaucrats, and military policy-planners in these nations.
To combat this diabolical asymmetric warfare, also known as fifth-generation warfare, that is designed to demoralize and debilitate civilian population and their government, their infrastructure, and their institutions from within, requires paying close attention to one's supposed friends. Perhaps even more than to one's enemies. In each of these targeted nations, the foreign funded NGOs to foreign Embassies and private military and civilian contractors, right alongside national intelligence agencies aided and abetted by those in local power, are engaged in orchestrating events and pointing fingers along standard party lines.
Every nation in the “global zone of percolating violence” is under this common siege, each according to the local conditions suitable to her own national genius. So Syria is being subjected to the so called lethal “rebels” fighting the military dictatorial government that has been in power for fifty years. These “rebels” are destroying the country from within in the name of “democracy” no differently than as if Syria was being brought “democracy” from the skies as witnessed in Iraq by the military might of United States and its Allies combined. While Pakistan, particular to its own genius of having a surplus of indoctrinated “jihadis” left over from the Afghan war, along with the infrastructure on the ground in both Afghanistan and Pakistan to continually manufacture and replenish them, is being subjected to the same lethal terrorists but by different names. Apart from seeding destabilization, controlled chaos, and ungovernability, they are principally designed to create worldwide fear of “Islamofascists” trying to take-over the “loose-nukes” of a failed but nuclear armed state.
As is empirically visible to all and sundry, Pakistan and Syria today have been made as ungovernable as Iraq and Afghanistan. The same results have been achieved much more cost-effectively, just like in its counterpart modus operandi, the cause célébré of Westerndom, the “color revolution”, in selected countries to foment “democracy” according to the recipe of self-liberation crafted by Dr. Gene Sharp. It is succinctly illustrated in his bold recipe book for manufacturing revolutions on demand virtually anywhere, titled: From Dictatorship to Democracy. The methods employed for manufacturing terror and blaming it on patsies, or using patsies directly as in suicide bombings, are not any different than in Operation Gladio.
Where is the hard evidence that insurgency is indeed fabricated ab initio, and can organically propagate itself much like weed in a fertile lawn? The matter is examined in Insurgency vs. Counter-Insurgency. The recent complaint from the Afghan government, as reported in the Washington Post of January 27, 2014, also underscores this grotesque reality:
“President Hamid Karzai has frequently lashed out at the U.S. military for causing civilian casualties in its raids. But behind the scenes, he has been building a far broader case against the Americans, suggesting that they may have aided or conducted shadowy insurgent-style attacks to undermine his government, according to senior Afghan officials. Karzai has formalized his suspicions with a list of dozens of attacks that he believes the U.S. government may have been involved in, according to one palace official. The list even includes the recent bomb and gun assault on a Lebanese restaurant in Kabul, one of the bloodiest acts targeting the international community in Afghanistan, the official said. The attack, which left 21 people dead, including three Americans, was almost universally attributed to the Taliban.”
All these nations will remain under siege. And all will eventually be reduced to utter chaos, with break-up of their infrastructures, institutions, and cultures, often followed by looting and theft of national treasures and resources no differently than has been orchestrated in Iraq and Afghanistan – the two Muslim nations which have borne the full brunt of fourth-generation warfare of direct military invasion and are now seething under global governance of supranational dictatorship wearing the guise of “democracy”.
Unless all the targeted nations in the “global zone of percolating violence” get smart and become nationally courageous, a quality which is evidently sorely lacking among their respective peoples as they continue to harp the axioms and mantras handed to them, it is already fait accompli. Their principal undoing is the tiny minority of uncle toms, house niggers, and mercenaries who have come to occupy not only all positions of political and military power in these countries, but also all positions of perception management. These sell-outs, traitors to their own peoples, often educated in the best Western universities and war colleges, deliberately pretend to not see the trumpeting elephant in the bridal suite as they continue to churn the cauldron of “militant Islam”, “Taliban”, “Al-Qaeda”, etceteras.
Get rid of the fifth columnists before Ali Baba will ever be effectively terminated. Do this before Ali Baba plusplus takes its place and cements world government! Surely, some courageous peoples with at least two neurons firing in their brain must exist in all these nations. Their cowardly silence is what is directly culpable for their own destruction – for they can be a formidable counter-force to the traitors in their nation.
