- As the French Military Attack Macron with SECOND ‘Civil War’ Warning, How Really Likely is an Islamist-Fuelled Internal Conflict?
by Damian Wilson, https://www.rt.com/
Serving officers have again raised deep concerns over the French president’s inaction on radical Islamists in the country. He won’t solve the problem by seeking to silence dissenters rather than engage on the issues they raise. A president receiving one letter from military men warning of an impending civil war over radical Islam is a rare enough event… so to get two in just over two weeks is some feat.
Having brushed aside the first, from 20 retired generals warning of an internal conflict over continuing concessions to Islamists, as the work of a bunch of irrelevant pensioners, President Emmanuel Macron needs a more considered approach to the latest salvo from a disgruntled armed forces.
Because the letter published in ‘Valeurs Actuelles’ at the weekend on behalf of an indeterminate number of young, serving soldiers, attracted support from nearly 250,000 members of the public in just over 24 hours. Like those before them, the message of this new missive is clear: “Civil war is brewing in France and you know it perfectly well.”
The difference this time around is that those behind the complaints published by the magazine are not a bunch of semi-retired generals, but serving soldiers from France’s so-called ‘Generation of Fire’.
