Britain and France will create an expeditionary corps by 2020

36
Britain and France will create a joint expeditionary force numbering 10 thousand soldiers, reports TASS statement by the British premiere Theresa May.




We agreed that British-French cooperation is still crucial for the defense of Europe and that together we will continue to play a full-scale role in strengthening security in this part of the world. And today we can confirm that the British-French joint expeditionary forces will be ready to quickly and efficiently deploy up to 10 thousand troops to cope with any threat, by the year 2020,
May said following a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron.

The meeting was held at the Royal Military Academy in Sandhurst near London.

According to the prime minister, the joint interests of London and Paris "go far beyond Europe, including the security and prosperity of African countries."

Today I can announce that we are intensifying our efforts in the Sahel zone in order to prevent Islamic extremism from sowing instability and danger and contributing to the escalation of the migration crisis. The UK will deploy three Chinook helicopters with their crews in the Sahel area and will continue to provide the support we have already offered by using heavy-duty transport aircraft. This will increase the ability of the French troops to effectively maneuver against extremists,
she said.

The leaders of the states also noted that France and the United Kingdom intend to combine their efforts in order "to prevent the use of the Internet by terrorists and other criminals."

We urge the private sector to provide a mechanism for identifying and quickly removing material from the global network, the content of which is against the law,
said in a joint statement.

It is also reported that prior to the negotiations of Macron and May, the leaders of the British Secret Intelligence Service, the Security Service and the Government Communication Center met with French colleagues from the main departments of foreign and domestic security.

      By 2020, they will be ready only for the deployment of 10 thousand corus, which, of course, "will decide everything" ... scared the hedgehog ...

        The expeditionary force is by definition the aggressor. It is created for specific conditions of battles in a foreign territory (in a particular case, in the Sahel zone).
        As in the 17-18 centuries, Anliya openly created gangsters (called privateers) for plundering foreign ships, so now they openly create gangsters, calling them an "expeditionary corps."

          Rob the whole world and, if possible, to fight with someone else's hands, has always been the "calling card" of England. The French would once again remember how their allies under Dunkirk were thrown, or to think about why Britain, being in the EU, did not refuse its pound. The "Expeditionary Corps", well, well, I guess, they soaped again in the interventionists ...

        Maybe it will "decide" if the main task is to intercept and destroy migrants from Africa before the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. They will pick up some Sudanese.
        To solve some serious problems in Europe, 10 Anglo-French slugs are not suitable.

      If Great Britain and France create a joint expeditionary force of 10 thousand troops, this will mean the funeral of the unborn European army, As a counterweight and alternative to NATO

        with what fright? ))) the colonial powers apparently decided to recall past centuries because that formation has only one goal — work in other countries. I'm afraid it smacks of a new invasion

      This is a little different. This is for conquering and maintaining power in the colonies. Think further. Although cool, they have grandmas for it. By the way, our grandmother)))).

          Read. I think this is a market statement that everyone was waiting for. But since Russia is not going to fight with European countries (well, perhaps they’ll really beg for it). That is the real purpose of this "tender friendship", the weakening of German leadership

            Well, the situation is conjuncture, but the fact of building up a shock fist on our western borders is obvious. everything is covered with all sorts of stories about Africa and Asia. But what about Germany? weakening Germany, France will not pull leadership. here, in general, we can talk about the agreement on the default collapse of the EU. everyone guesses what to do next. and the European army_ is dead in the bud.

              All reasonable people understand that the war between Russia and NATO is impossible by definition (NF). And how many Anglo-French there will be on our border 10 people or 10 million people unprincipled

              I agree I won’t pull it, but Boche in France, no matter what they say, they don’t like to spoil their “neighbor” in the European tradition

                reasonable people understand. where are you at the top of these nato villas? the presence of nuclear weapons does not prevent the organization of provocations with the subsequent activation of those forces that are now at the border. Yes, and not 10 or even 20, you see how the group increases under the guise of rotation. I agree. the paddlers hate how ready the Saxons are, who is the bigger question.

                  I am sure that all these games on the border with Russia are for "domestic use." Political games that do not have great military value. Of course, the RF Ministry of Defense is responding to a change in the combat situation. They don’t care why an enemy tank is worth it, they need to know how to destroy it.

    the joint interests of London and Paris "go far beyond Europe, including those related to ensuring the security and prosperity of African countries."

    1. "Russia is a military-political dwarf. I will bring it to its knees", - Karl of the 12th, XNUMXth century ... Result: Sweden has forever lost the status of a Great Power.
    2. "I will conquer backward Russia!" - Friedrich, Chancellor of Germany, mid-eighteenth century. Result: in 1759, the Russian army entered Berlin.
    3. "Russia is a colossus with feet of clay," - Napoleon, XIX century. Result: in 1814, the Russian army took Paris, the capital of France.
    4. "I will conquer the USSR before the end of this year," - Hitler, XX century. Result: In 1945, he committed suicide when the Soviet army was already in Berlin.
    The moral of the story? Never mess with Russians !! "

    "The security and prosperity of African countries," these words from the lips of "Madame" Emmanuel sound very blasphemous. The prosperity brought by the paddlers to Libya is still being dismantled by all Libyans.

    Anglo-Americans are beginning to distrust Germany and, taking advantage of the protracted government crisis there, they decided to shift its leadership in Europe towards Anglo-Franco-Poland.

    All they had to kill and rob, these British and French. Again, the Crusades begin to let off steam in Europe, to allow the people living there to do their favorite thing - war, theft, deceit, looting and murder. It's time to stop it!
