Gladio by another name?
Estonian Defense League a quasi-military organization as currently being trained and ready for action. As reported by the New York Times.
My instantaneous thought was Gladio!
"Spooked by Russia, Tiny Estonia Trains a Nation of Insurgents"
"The Estonian Defense League . . . requires its 25,400 volunteers to turn out occasionally for weekend training sessions that have taken on a serious hue since Russia’s incursions in Ukraine two years ago"
"Estonia, a NATO member with a population of 1.3 million people and a standing army of about 6,000, would not stand a chance in a conventional war with Russia. But two armies fighting on an open field is not Estonia’s plan"
"Estonia has stepped up training for members of the Estonian Defense League, teaching them how to become insurgents, right down to the making of improvised explosive devices, or I.E.D.s"
TO WHAT EXTENT IF ANY IS THIS BEING DONE UNDER NATO COMMAND? TO WHAT EXTENT DOES A GLADIO TYPE ORGANIZATION STILL EXIST WITHIN NATO?
The Estonian realizing their own conventional military as is constituted no match for the Russian. BUT an insurgent and guerrilla warfare organization already in place and trained a much more serious matter. Dissuade the Russian from any action to begin with!
