Critical thought of the day: Ask yourself: If you were the establishment, and you had pie all over your face from the backfiring of the Libya invasion; How would you get out of the mess AND look like you were the “good guys” the whole time?
Will NATO Resurrect Operation Gladio To Frame Gaddafi?
Libyan leader’s threat to attack Europe could provide NATO with the perfect pretext to launch a full ground invasion

Given the fact that NATO itself was one of the pioneers of false flag terror to frame political enemies under Operation Gladio, a CIA-supported terror campaign that was responsible for a series of bloody attacks in Europe throughout the cold war years, we shouldn’t be surprised if NATO ressurects the legacy of Gladio in its desperation to justify a final decapitation strike to topple Colonel Muammar Gaddafi.
Gaddafi’s threat to attack Europe in retaliation for the NATO bombing campaign in Libya prompted the establishment media to react with contrived outrage, eliciting sharp intakes of breath at the mere thought that Gaddafi, whose country has been under constant bombardment for over three months, would dare to even speak about fighting back.
This is all based on the failure of the media to properly challenge the Obama administration’s ludicrous and Orwellian contention that more than 800 attack missions flown by U.S. warplanes over the last 13 weeks which have targeted Gaddafi’s command centers, not to mention universities, hospitals and apartment blocks, can be justifiably termed “kinetic military action” and does not amount to an act of war.
Of course, the only reason Obama is loathe to admit the fact that the attack on Libya is a war is because it would stymy the billions of dollars the Pentagon has creatively shifted around to fund the bombardment, as well as opening up Obama to impeachment charges for his flagrant violation of the constitution in not seeking Cogressional approval for the campaign, against the advice of his own constitutional lawyers.
But even as the press shrugged its shoulders at the deaths of toddlers slaughtered by NATO “smart bombs” and gave a collective sigh as maimed babies were displayed on television, the establishment reacted to Gaddafi’s threat to take the battle “to Europe, to target your homes, offices, families, which would become legitimate military targets, like you have targeted our homes,” with a hyperbolic and hypocritical rush to seize the moral high ground.
But aside from the fatuously feigned pious righteousness in response to the mere hint that Gaddafi would dare fight back in a war, the Libyan leader’s threat highlights the potential for false flag attacks to be staged in Europe and then blamed on Gaddafi as a justification for a ground invasion that is already in the works.
With NATO powers eager to bring the war to a close within the next two months, there’s a signficant risk that we could see the legacy of Operation Gladio rear its ugly head once again. Gladio was a clandestine NATO cold war “stay behind” operation that sought to create a “strategy of tension” by having its agents carry out terror attacks in Europe which were blamed on leftist political groups.
Gladio was designed to demonize political opposition and “force the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security,” according to the testimony of former Gladio agent Vincenzo Vinciguerra. In 2000, an Italian parliamentary investigation found that the 1980 Bologna train bombing, which killed 85 people, was carried out by “men inside Italian state institutions and … men linked to the structures of United States intelligence.”
“You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game,” Vinciguerra explained in sworn testimony.
