They based their political doctrine of The Fascism of WWII Leader Benito Mussolini, but soon became Pro-Communist and Anarchist in philosophy. Their ultimate goal was to out NATO influence from Italy and establish a Communist type State. They planed to achieve these goals through mirder, kidnap and other Terrorist methods. Operating in clandestine ''Cells'', their true numbers will never been known. The Red Brigade was responsible for many massacres and related activities, causing them to be extremely feared by Authorities. The Organization was supported (money and weapons) by other well known Terrorist Organizations, such as The Palestine Liberation Army.
