When a country suffers from an act of terrorism, its leader becomes more popular?
Jens Stoltenberg had a 94% approval rating from Norwegians after the Norway Attacks of July 2011.
"Outside Norway some thought Mr Stoltenberg deserved the Nobel Peace Prize."
From hero to knave
The police in Northern Ireland (RUC) have been accused of helping to carry out acts of terrorism
Stoltenberg's popularity has now nosedived.
A government appointed inquiry in Norway has reported:
1. Government buildings in central Oslo were bombed.
A tip-off identified the car licence-plates of 'the bomber'.
'The bomber' was able to drive past two police vehicles on his way to Utoya island without being stopped.
2. The police got into an overloaded boat that broke down.
The police headed for the wrong island.
It took 35 minutes for the police to cross the 500-metre (1,640 feet) channel separating Utoya from the mainland.
10 people were murdered by weapons imported by the British government.
3. The Oslo bombing could have been prevented if previously approved security measures been put in place.
Terrorism carried out by government agents.
In Norway, the spy chief, the police chief and the justice minister have now all resigned.
Now, it seems to us that elements of the police may have been involved in helping to carry out the attacks in Norway.
The Norway Attacks look like an inside-job, involving, among others, fascist elements within the Norwegian police, military andsecurity services.
On 1 August 2011, James Petras writes about Norway (Organized Political Terrorism.):
According to James Petras:
1. The car bomb was a highly complex weapon.
It required expertise and coordination - the kind available to security services, such as Mossad, which specialize in car bombs.
Amateurs, like Breivik, usually blow themselves up or lack the skill required to connect the electronic timing devices or remote detonators.
2. A lone zealot could not do all of the following:
(a) Transport the bomb
(b) Obtain (steal) a vehicle
(c) Place the bomb at the strategic site
(d) Successfully detonate it
(e) Dress up in a special police uniform
With an arsenal of hundreds of rounds of ammunition and drive off in another vehicle to Utoeya Island
(f) Wait patiently, while armed to the teeth, for a ferry boat
(g) Cross with other passengers in his police uniform
(h) Round up the Labour youth activists and begin the massacre of scores of youths
(i) Finish off the wounded and hunt for those trying to hide or swim away.
3. According to witness testimony on Utoeya Island, shots from two distinct weapons were heard from different directions during the massacre.
4. Note 'the complicity' of top police officials.
The police took 90 minutes to arrive at Utoeya Island, located less than 20 kilometers from Oslo, 12 minutes by helicopter and 25 to 30 minutes by car and boat.
The police chief, Sveinung Sponheim, made the feeblest excuse, claiming problems with transport.
A helicopter was available.
It managed to fly to Utoeya and film the slaughter.
Over half of Norwegians own or have access to a boat.
In 2008, the Norwegian Queen (above) honoured the writer Knut Hamsun, a famous Norwegian fascist.
5. The obvious question arises as to the degree to which 'neo-fascism' has penetrated the police and security forces.
It looks a though the neo-fascists 'influence' the government.
6. The police did not save a single life.
When they finally arrived, Breivik turned himself over to the police. The police did not have to hunt or capture the assassin. An almost choreographed scenario.
7. The Norwegian military has no problem sending troops to Afghanistan, half way around the world and providing Norwegian Air Force jets and pilots to bomb and terrorize Libya.
And yet they can’t find a helicopter or a row boat to transport their police to stop a domestic attack.
8. The neo-fascist right want to 'send a message' to the Labour Party:
Either it must accept a full neo-fascist pro-Israeli agenda or expect more massacres, more elected fascists, more followers of Anders Behring Breivik.
Norway joined NATO in suppressing reports of civilian Afghan deaths
General Harald Sunde was appointed as Norway's Defence Chief in 2009.
Prior to this, Sunde was the commander of the NATO’s Joint Warfare Center in Norway, and was assigned to Brussels to represent Norway in the NATO’s Military Committee.
He was also the commander of army Special Forces, namely “Hærens Jegerkommando” and “Forsvarets Spesialkommando”, from 1992 to 1996.
General Sunde graduated from the US Army War College in 1999.
