Read of the Algerian Civil War. A conflict I was only in the most vaguest terms familiar with.
A very bloody dirty war the ruling junta [military men] apparently waging a counter-insurgency using the most devious means possible. One of the main insurgent groups [two of them waged war against the central government] apparently a false flag creation of the counter-insurgency.
"junta - - noun 1. a small group ruling a country, especially immediately after a coup d'état and before a legally constituted government has been instituted."
1. "The Ugly Truth about Algeria".
"State terrorism. Human-rights abuses. Mass repression. How much do we really understand about what happened when Algeria plunged into civil war?"
2. "The Furrows of Algeria".
"From the terrible Algerian slaughter, and its terrible silence, comes this small tale, told by an officer of the special forces who broke with 'Le Pouvoir' of his own country and sought asylum in France."
3. "Algeria’s ‘Years of Blood’: Not Quite What They Seem".
"In December 1991, the Algerian government—the military regime in power since the French were expelled—gave in to public pressure, which had already turned sanguinary, and allowed an election. It was quite clear that the Islamic Salvation Front (FIS), a fundamentalist party, would emerge victorious . . . in January 1992, the military launched a coup and shut down the final rounds of the election."
Let me repeat as is alleged GIA that insurgent group apparently created by and controlled by the ruling junta. The insurgents part and parcel of the counter-insurgency!!
The false flag in this particular instance not just an incidental action of the war but rather a predominant element?
"La sale guerre." Called that for good reason. "The dirty war".
