merge / move suggested to aftermath of world war II[edit]

I'm proposing merge this good but brief article to new section of Aftermath of World War II article, for incorporation into proposed new, expanded section immediately below existing "Post-war tensions" section, and with proposed title Clandestine Operations.

This is a perfectly fine stand alone article and you provide no reasoning as to why it should be merged. Several articles link to it, while these same links would often make little or no sense if redirected to Aftermath of World War II. Occupation of the Baltic States, Baltic states under Soviet rule (1944–1991) or even Cold War would be better merge targets. Edward321 (talk) 23:44, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
  • Article has good possibilities for expansion, merging with Aftermath of World War II makes very little sense to me. This is good as a standalone article. What would be a reason for such a merger? --Sander Säde 09:11, 2 November 2010 (UTC)
I also see no reason to merge it into that article. It stands on it's own. It's fine to summarize information from this article there, but no reason to include this level of detail there, so if it merged, all the details would be lost. --Habap (talk) 19:49, 3 November 2010 (UTC)

US involvement?[edit]

I just noticed something interesting in the U.S. Army Special Forces Unconventional Warfare Training Manual. Page 1-8 lists "The Baltic States (Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia–1950s)" as an example of United States use of limited-involvement operations to pressure an adversary. This article now only mentions the British Secret Intelligence Service. What was the US role?

One of the sources used also mentions the US. Quote: "from 1953 on, following a co-operation agreement between the British and the American Secret Services, American CIA agents (supported by the famous US-backed Gehlen organisation) were also inserted along the coasts of the Baltic States by Klose’s boats."

I think Operation Jungle was British run, this mention in the US Special Forces training manual may be referring to Operation Rollback. Apparently while the British used boats for insertion, the Americans preferred air operations and parachute drops. --Nug (talk) 02:22, 19 November 2011 (UTC)
