Last thread was locked mod told me to post it in CA but I can't find it so it's going in history I doubt there'll be any problems with that.
In the mid 70s British intelligence tried to convince the UVF to shoot up a primary school it was to be carried out by the Gleneanne gang a gang made up entirely of informers/agents the victims were to be both "teachers and students" in the end the UVF refused.
A couple of people said this in the last couple of decades but about a year ago former RUC officer and member of the Gleneanne Gang (otherwise known as MI5s own terror squad) stated that the claims were true.
For people reading this (most of you) who don't know much about the troubles would probably find this sort of claim hard to believe and you would see no reason why they would do that.
The idea was to cause a civil war and turn the IRA into a purely sectarian conflict.
“From their vision such a war would be quite short; they thought they could have a quick, short and sharp process of cleansing out the IRA,” said Mr Murray.
Some IRA members would have acted on their own and carried out sectarian attacks, the IRA over a very short time would lose most of their support and sympathy and members of the IRA would be ten times more likely to become informants due to disgust at IRA actions
Another thing is that this was told to UVF that it was to be in retaliation for the kingsmill attack where the "IRA" killed ten protestant workmen.
There's also a lot of questions about that attack when an enquiry team were asked to investigate it 40 years later but couldn't because the files had "mysteriously disappeared in a fire".
One of the 11 people who was shot over ten times survived and claimed that the guy in charge spoke with an English accent, he wouldn't have had any reason to hide his accent seeing as though it was set up as UDA checkpoint and the soldiers would have been expected to have Irish accents anyway
