From a comment to the blog:
This reminds me of Gladio in Italy. I wonder whether Allied forces knew about it at some level, and tacitly supported it by doing nothing."
Referring to the German secret army as clandestinely organized by German war veterans in the aftermath of the Second World War.
Indeed, that German secret army bearing a similarity to Gladio.
Gladio that clandestine and in "cold storage" organization of anti-communist European elements that would have become the nucleus of a partisan/guerrilla insurgency if the worst case scenario of NATO military planners became a reality, BIG RED the Soviet army moving west.
"Operation Gladio . . . is the codename for a clandestine NATO 'stay-behind' operation in Europe during the Cold War. Its purpose was to continue anti-communist actions in the event of a Soviet invasion and conquest. . . ."Operation Gladio" is used as an informal name for all stay-behind organizations.
"Operating in many NATO and even some neutral countries"
"Stay-behind" operations, military equipment pre-positioned and hidden, those personnel organic to the Gladio trained and again in "cold-storage", units activated ONLY IN CASE OF SOVIET INVASION AND OCCUPATION!
