Strategy Of Tension Continues In Iraq
Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones | September 27 2005
Last week's attempted staged car bombing in Basra and more bloodshed in Iraq over the past few days again brings to light an underlying strategy which serves to keep the country mired in turmoil to justify the continued presence of occupational forces.
This isn't a speculative conspiracy, it's demonstrable by the very words and deeds of the megalomaniacs now running the show blood-soaked show in Iraq.
In November 2002 the Asian Times reported on the creation of P2OG, a Pentagon operation aimed at, "stimulating reactions" among terrorists and states possessing weapons of mass destruction, meaning it would prod terrorist cells into action, thus exposing them to "quick-response" attacks by US forces."
Rather than the traditional intelligence model of infiltration and sting operations, the Pentagon is now willing to allow terrorist atrocities to take place and indeed provoke them into being unleashed.
However, is this really a justification for catching terrorists? Especially in light of numerous reports confirming that whenever bin Laden was cornered frustrated generals and commanders were ordered to let him go free?
Exactly how the occupation would 'stimulate reactions' was made all too clear last week, when British SAS agents were caught killing Iraqi police and attempting to stage a car bombing while wearing fake wigs and Arab garb.
The agenda to maintain division and ethnic tension in Iraq is a long term plan.
In 1982, Oded Yinon, an official from the Israeli Foreign Affairs office, wrote: "To dissolve Iraq is even more important for us than dissolving Syria. In the short term, it's Iraqi power that constitutes the greatest threat to Israel. The Iran-Iraq war tore Iraq apart and provoked its downfall. All manner of inter-Arab conflict help us and accelerate our goal of breaking up Iraq into small, diverse pieces."
So if the plan is to keep the different sects at each others' throats then who benefits from the chaos created by the endless bombings?
Furthermore, what is the true face of terrorism? In December 2002 the Palestinian Authority arrested a group of Palestinians (pictured below) who confessed to collaborating with the Israeli government in posing as a fake Al-Qaeda group. Their actions were intended to falsify an Al-Qaeda presence in Gaza and Lebanon. This meant Israel could then claim justification for a harsher crackdown.
Operation Gladio was another black-ops staged terror program that ran through the 60ís, 70ís and 80ís and was coordinated by the CIA and European intelligence agencies in various different European countries.
Three separate parliamentary investigations in Italy, Switzerland and Belgium concluded that Gladio was a program geared towards carrying out terrorist attacks which were blamed on the governmentís political enemies at the time in order to discredit them and rally the population around the state.
It was actually called the strategy of tension in de-classified documents.
Former Gladio agent Vincenzo Vinciguerra outlined the dark philosophy of the operation in sworn testimony,
"You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple: to force ... the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security."
The fact that the British were caught engaging in similar activities in Iraq should come as no surprise. Every major IRA bombing in England and Northern Ireland has had the fingerprints of the British intelligence establishment all over it.
The August 1998 Omagh bombing (pictured), which killed 29 people, was known ahead of time by the security services and yet the bomb team wasn't intercepted. The reason? One of the members of the bomb squad was working for army intelligence and MI5. The bombing was allowed to go ahead.
Another former British secret agent, Kevin Fulton, went public to blow the whistle on how he had received orders from the very top, at that time Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, to carry out terrorist crimes which targeted innocent civilians.
The British government has also been caught directly funding Al-Qaeda. Former MI5 agent David Shayler was arrested for breaking the Official Secrets Act when he reported that in 1996 MI6 had wired £100,000 to an Al-Qaeda group to carry out the assassination of Colonel Gadafy. Shayler also charged that the intelligence agencies had prior knowledge of several terrorist attacks on London in the 1990's, including the 1993 bombing of the Israeli embassy which Shayler concludes was carried out by the Israelis themselves.
The strategy of tension has proven a successful one throughout recent decades. Until the wider world truly understands where the real control of terrorism lies we will continue to see lives and liberties shredded on the altar of order out of chaos.
