.. The strategy of tension (Italian: strategia della tensione).... to help roll out the "war on terror" promoting US/NATO-sponsored

digest comment:
US DESPERATION TO DEFEAT CHINA FOR GLOBAL AI DOMINATION WITH OUTRIGHT FASCIST TERROR LIKE ITS FAILED INFORMATION WAR AND WARS IN LITERALLY COUNTLESS NATIONS. BORN AGAIN CHINESE IMPERIALISM'S ABILITY TO EXPAND IN ITS EARLY STAGE WITHOUT THREATS AND LIES. AND THE MORE BEHIND AND DRIVEN FOR SURVIVAL TO EVER MORE DEADLY AGGRESSION. WHY? BECAUSE WHEN WORLD-ENEMY #1 LOSES ITS POST WW2 GLOBAL DICTATORSHIP, ITS STATE'S RULING CLASS IS DONE, POWERLESS, 'MANIFEST DESTINY' TO TURN HISTORY BACK TO A SELF-PROCLAIMED SELF-CONTAINED NATION-STATE. WE KNOW THE DEPTHS THIS MONSTROUS BEAST HAS GONE TO, AND THAT OBAMA INITIATED A $30 TRILLION NUCLEAR UPDATE PLAN. HAVE WE BECOME SO DANGEROUSLY DEGRADED AND STUPID TO VOTE THE US-TRUMP CARD ? ACTIVELY VOTING FOR ANY/ALL-AMERICAN ARROGANT GANGSTERISM? LIKE 2000 THE SUPREMES SELECTED GWB IN TIME FOR THE 911 GREENLIGHT TO THE US WORLD TERROR WAR.

Brookings: “order out of chaos”
....There may come a time when U.S. primacy has vanished or diminished to the point of strategic insignificance, but that day is still a long way off. And so rather than abandoning a grand strategy that has worked well over the past twenty-five years, America should instead work to sustain and reinvigorate that grand strategy for a period in which its primacy remains impressive, even if more con- tested than before....

Reflections on the Marshall Plan

Henry Kissinger recalls the content of World War II US Army Chief of Staff Gen. George C. Marshall’s Commencement address which marked a historic departure in American foreign policy... in the guise of a practical economic program. extended America’s hand... to create a stable postwar glpbal order..World War II dislocations posed this challenge on a massive scale.... a political and strategic challenge to democratic capitalist societies had come into being...Communist dictatorships in every territory its forces occupied at the close of the war up to the River Elbe in the center of historic Europe. Beyond the satellite states...European democracies needed, above all, to restore hope in their economic prospects...Not the least significant aspect was facilitating Germany’s reentrance into the community of nations as an equal partner... viewed their challenge not in technical terms, but as the fulfilment of a political vision based on a common cultural heritage...Adenauer, De Gasperi, and Schuman helped America inspire the formation of the North Atlantic Alliance. NATO...In fact Marshall’s... was a clarion call to a permanent American role in the construction of an international order...(for) the United States to take long-term responsibility for both restoring Western Europe and recreating a global order....

US Special Forces Secret Ops in over half the world’s countries

“We need to continue to synchronize the deployment of SOF throughout the globe. We all need to be synched up, coordinated and prepared throughout the command.” Left out of the synch are the American people consistently kept in the dark about what US elite forces are doing, where they’re doing it, not to mention the checkered results of, and blowback from what they’ve done. If history is any guide the ‘black ops blackout’ will help ensure this continues to be a “golden age” for US Special Operations Command.

G0OGLES CREEPING MILITARIZATION

Scott Cleland, Chairman, NetCompetition
Google CEO Larry Page has rapidly positioned Google to become an indispensable U.S. military contractor. Google recently purchased Boston Dynamics, a robotics pioneer that produces amazing humanoid robots for the U.S. Defense Department. This development invites attention to Google’s broader military contracting ambitions — especially since Boston Dynamics is the eighth robotics company that Google has bought in the last six months. Just as drones are the future of air warfare, humanoid robots and self-driving vehicles will be the future of ground warfare according to U.S. defense plans. There are many other reasons why the U.S. military is on path to become Google’s single largest customer. Likewise these reasons indicate Google has a closer working relationship with the NSA than it acknowledges publicly.

Terrorism in Western Europe.... NATO’s Secret Stay-Behind Armies
http://blueshift.nu/doc/DanieleGanser_Terrorism_in_Western_Europe.pdf
Dr. Daniele Ganser Senior Research Center for Security Studies ETH Zurich, Switzerland.Whitehead Journal of Diplomacy and International Relations

After World War Two, the creation of secret armies was based on the fear of a communist invasion and occupation, or Communist take over of power in Western Europe...
As of 1948, the so-called Clandestine Committee of the Western Union (CCWU) united senior officers of European military secret services to coordinate secret anti- communist warfare. After the creation of NATO in 1949, CCWU was secretly integrated into NATO, and as of 1951, operated under the label Clandestine Planning Committee (CPC). Next to the CPC, a second secret army command center, labeled Allied Clandestine Committee (ACC), was set up in 1957 on the orders of NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander in Europe (SACEUR). This military structure provided significant US leverage over the secret stay-behind networks in Western Europe as the SACEUR, throughout NATO’s history, is traditionally a US General who reports to the Pentagon in Washington and is based in NATO’s Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) in Mons, Belgium. The ACC’s duties included elaborating on the directives for the network, developing its clandestine capability, and organizing bases in Britain and the United States. In wartime, it was to plan stay-behind operations in conjunction with SHAPE.6 According to former CIA director William Colby, it was “a major program.”7
