31. Excellent context.

Another one worth mentioning is Operation Gladio, the NATO/CIA campaign to deliberately promote a wave of terrorism across Western Europe (but primarily in Italy) in order to discredit the European left through guilt by association.

Gladio peaked in 1978 - Italy's 'Year of the Gun' - and culminated with the Bologna Train Station bombing in 1980, at which point it was largely curtailed. By then, up to 1,000 civilians had been killed, including numerous children in school buses.

Gladio's existence was first revealed by testimony in 1984 from a fascist terrorist in its employ. Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti, another participant (in a political capacity), confirmed it in 1990. None of the 622 people listed as Gladio participants by declassified Italian files has ever been brought to trial.

This "opportunity" sounds like something along those same lines - especially after what just happened in Istanbul (our "stalwart ally".

Thank you for going the extra mile in your research. It's all there, if we just look for it.
