Macron promised "unprecedented investments" to rearmament the French army

19
The French government plans to increase the military budget to 2025% of GDP from 2, directing “unprecedented investments” to re-equip the army and modernize means of containment, said French leader Emmanuelle Macron.



In the coming five years, we expect to spend annually 1,6 billion euros more than at present. (...) This is an unprecedented investment for our military,
quotes the words of the Macron newspaper Look.

We must have strong deterrent forces
added president.

The publication reminds that the day before, the US Permanent Representative to NATO, Kay Bailey Hutchison, called for increasing the defense budgets of the member countries of the alliance to 2% of GDP. In 2017, the defense budget of NATO countries will total $ 945,9 billion.

Meanwhile, according to the Stockholm Institute for Peace Studies, in 2016, Russia’s defense expenditures amounted to $ 69,2 billion. As Russian President Vladimir Putin noted, last year Russia's defense expenditures reached over 3's, but the next three years the figure will drop to 2,7-2,8% of GDP.

          I wonder who dies faster: donkey or padish? Macron would have reached the end of this term. And there Le Pen is already waiting in ambush ... A self-confident cockerel. smile

      This husband is a grandmother, but not grandfather, burns like an unconventional man. In his country, the Islamic Expeditionary Force almost every day makes sorties, in Marseilles and other cities, the police are afraid to go into some quarters, and Mikron is going to defend or fight against whom?
      De Gaulle in his place would begin to separate flies from cutlets: some to integrate, others to send or isolate, or even just overboard. angry

      Unprecedented investment in the army in France was made only by Napaleon, then the French were quietly slipping into a dull city ... Now they are below a sexual hole in a village closet!

      Money, as usual - no ..... But there is "AMBITION" .... Actually, "paddlers", starting in 1812 3.14 everyone, who is not lazy !!!
      First, the Russians, then the British (Waterloo), then the Prussians (Franco-Prussian War), then the Germans (World War I), then the Germans AGAIN (World War 1), then the Vietnamese, then the Tuaregs (Algerians) .......
      Now this Makritsa looks like Bonaparte "remembered" ........
      And here I remembered the "bearded" joke:
      Bonaparte (standing on the Kremlin wall) - "Something I do not see these Russians with" keys to the city "???
      - Murat (nearby): looked into the pipe (spyglass): "They are coming, Emperor, they are coming !!!!"
      - Bonaparte: "With the keys?"
      - Murat: "With the keys, the Emperor! And with the keys, and with the chains, and with the mounts !!!!!"

    yeah, the notion of “containment” is especially curious, itched out at the coquette somewhere. already “invested” 450 million Eureka to the Iraqi authorities “for the lives of their instructors at the Barmalei.
