Gladio Islamic State style??
Additionally as extracted from the Patrick Cockburn article seen at the Ron Unz Internet web site.
"Mosul Set to be Completely 'Destroyed' in Battle to Free It from Isis"
MOSUL IF AND WHEN CAPTURED BY THE MILITARY OF THE IRAQI NATIONAL ARMY PACIFICATION OF THE CITY WILL REMAIN A PROBLEM FOR ANY TIME INTO THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE?
The villains of ISIL with a lot of forethought having evidently organized "stay-behind" units. This is the ISIL version of NATO Gladio?
"In a stay-behind operation, a country places secret operatives or organizations in its own territory, for use in the event that an enemy occupy that territory. If this occurs, the operatives would then form the basis of a resistance movement or act as spies from behind enemy lines."
"Mr Zebari [Hoshyar Zebari], who originally comes from Mosul, describes the present situation in the city as 'horrible' and 'a shambles', even in those parts of it that Iraqi government forces have captured, though not fully occupied and secured. 'There are Isis ‘sleeper cells’ with maybe 16 to 24 men in each district which come out of hiding and kill people who are cooperating with the government,' he [Hoshyar Zebari] says. 'They target restaurants which have reopened and serve soldiers.'”
For an organization originally described by President Obama as the junior varsity [JV] ISIL has a remarkable degree of sophistication. Gives regrettably so a lot of thought not only to the NOW but to the FUTURE!
