|Description||Proposed continuation of Operation Gladio.|
Gladio 3.0 is a conjectured continuation of Operation Gladio.
The original Gladio was NATO's secret stay-behind army during the Cold War. The word itself means a double-edged sword, and just like the sword, the network had a dual-purpose. Firstly it was to form the resistance in case of a Soviet invasion. Secondly, it was to secure the Western European states against any left-wing parties getting into position of power, democratically elected or otherwise. Recruited mostly from fascists people with a hard right ideology, it secured the second objective in different countries with a mix of propaganda, assassinations, and terror operations, most often under false flag blaming the leftists.
Gladio 2.0 was a significant reboot of this operation. With an approximate start after the end of the Cold War in 1990, it used Muslim jihadists, with a core of mercenaries from the War in Afghanistan, and again for a dual purpose. The ensuing "war on terror" made a further militarization of Western societies possible, while at the same time creating the pretext for the takeover of the Greater Middle East.
The Coming Ukrainian Insurgency
Gladio 3.0, like its predecessors, will have a dual purpose. Using the bogeyman of white supremacists groups and individuals who are at the same time condemned and secretly given support, the militarization of Western societies increases yet again in a “War on Domestic Terror” based on incident such as the 2021 Washington D.C. Riots and the Gretchen Whitmer kidnapping plot, while white supremacists recruits, being recruited for an Ukrainian insurgency can be used in a hybrid war against Russia.
In February 2022, Douglas London, a Senior Operations Officer in the CIA Clandestine Service, wrote an article in the CFR's Foreign Affairs magazine, where he drew a direct line to the U.S. support for the Afghan mujahideen in the 1980s: "Putin will face a long, bloody insurgency that could spread across multiple borders, perhaps even reaching into Belarus. Widening unrest could destabilize other countries in Russia’s orbit, such as Kazakhstan, and even spill into Russia itself. When conflicts begin, unpredictable and unimaginable outcomes can become all too real. Putin may not be prepared for the insurgency—or insurgencies—to come."
