The support of Islamic terrorists groups is a cornerstone of US and European foreign covert military operations, where weapons, money, and logistical support are given to Islamic terrorist groups who then use them to wage proxy wars on behalf of the US against her various enemies. The Russians do the same, but with far less successful effects many of the times, although there are notable exceptions (see the Biafra War in West Africa).
During the 1980s, Operation Cyclone funneled billions of dollars in weapons and aid to Islamic terrorists in Afghanistan, known at the Taliban. During the 1990s, the US backed Chechen and Bosnian Mujahideen against the Russians and Russian interests in the Balkans. During the 2000s, the US created another terrorist group, ISIS, in order to fight her proxy wars in Iraq, Syria, and North Africa in order to destabilize the region to bring about the refugee crisis of 2015.
Likewise, there are the records of the support of Islamic movements in the USSR going back to the early 1950s being backed by the CIA, as they have been proven to be so to this day.
All of these operations took place under the umbrella of Gladio, a CIA program that was first exposed in Italy by many former operatives, first from former Gladio participant Vincenzo Vinciguerra and the head of Gladio in Italy from 1971 to 1974 General Gerardo Serravalle all the way up to Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti himself. In Denmark they called it “Absalon,” in France they called it “Plan Bleu,” in Turkey they called it “Kontrgerilla”, and the CIA called it “stay behind operations,” but it was the same network with the same goals, which were to contain the USSR, create proxy armies for use in domestic operations as well as in the potential event of a Soviet invasion, and to prepare for a reinvigoration of Western political force in a global way in the future.
Now according to Bulgarian reporter Dilyana Gaytanzhieva, another Special Operations directive from the US has been uncovered. This one is called “Task Force Smoking Gun,” which according to her research has been working out of Croatia since 2017 and involved major contracts with the Serbian government whereby weapons were produced at the order of the Pentagon and then directed from Europe through Turkey and into Syria.
The Pentagon deployed Task Force Smoking Gun to Croatia in 2017 in support of the US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) Train and Equip program in Syria. According to leaked e-mails, Task Force Smoking Gun has been operating an arms depot in the Croatian city of Podhum near Rijeka Airport from where Pentagon-commissioned American carriers (Atlas Air and Kalitta Air) have transported the military cargo to the US air base Al Udeid in Qatar.
The weapons originate from Serbia. The buyers are four American companies which have been contracted by the US Government to supply non US standard weapons (weapons not in use by the US Army) – Sierra Four Industries, Orbital ATK, Global Ordnance, and UDC.
Leaked passports reveal which US Government officials and private contractors have ordered, inspected and accepted the weapons. The same names have been listed by the Pentagon as recipients of a US Central Command award in recognition of their support to the Syrian Train and Equip program – the US program for arming militants in Syria (see the document libraries below).
“We have received the attached list of items for the US Government. The request is for USG Special Operations Command, end user Iraqi Ministry of Defence (via Kuwait)”, writes a British arms dealer, Lynn Timckle, director of the UK-based Imber Enterprises Limited in a leaked e-mail to the Serbian arms manufacturer Krusik. The e-mail dated 21 January 2016 includes the US Government list of weapons that need to be purchased from arms factories across Eastern Europe.
Lynn Timckle asks Krusik to make an offer of its ability to deliver mortar shells as soon as possible. Krusik offers 2,450 pcs. of mortar shells 60 mm M73 HE, 23,000 pcs. of mortar shells 82 mm M74 HE, and 27,000 pcs. of mortar shells 120 mm M62P8 HE.
Imber Enterprises was established on March 2011 by Lynn Timcke predominantly to supply defence products and provide support services to Governments and Ministries worldwide, including Eastern European weapons, according to information provided by ADS (the British defense industry organisation which member is Imber Enterprises).

The entire report is in three parts, and is worth a long read as it goes into explicit detail about how all of said weapons were sent to ISIS and her offshoots in Syria for the purpose of continuing their war against Syria and her supporting partner in Russia.
There has been much debate as to whether or not Gladio ever ended due to a lack of direct information. However, whatever programs may have ended with the fall of the USSR in the years from 1989 to 1991 did not end, but continued under different names. The “Great Game” played by the UK against Russia during the 19th century up through the early 20th century was the direct predecessor to Gladio, and after the fall of the USSR, if Gladio was ended, it only did so in name because the principles by which Gladio operated are being used today with no change to the basic strategy, and that is to give weapons and training to dangerous criminals, form them into terrorist groups, use these groups to attack and break down society, then use the chaos created to justify particular geopolitical ends. It is a highly darwinistic, evil approach because it views men as pawns in a game of chess whose lives are as only as valuable as they are to achieving specific goals, and if they are not considered valuable or “expendable”, then their murder is regarded as justifiable to the complaints of feigned outrage.
If one considers the purpose of Gladio to be creating the conditions for a Third World War, something that was heavily discussed, being planned, and anticipated for in CIA documents from the 1950s, then its objectives are going very well. It has been noted that during the Cuban Missile Crisis, the US wanted to continue to provoke Russia in order to start a war, and it was the Russians who turned down the provocations and retreated because they did not want the bloodshed.
This is no credit to the Americans. For all of the evil that the Soviets have done, it was the Soviets who refused to respond to American provocations that would have given them the excuse for mass murder that they wanted.
Terrorism is a part of Islam. However, the terrorism today has been encouraged, incited, and directly assisted by Western nations in order to use it for global projects to create, in the words of President Bush I, a “New World Order”.
