Military Review

The French general spoke about the threat to France and the world order from Russia

63

The French press published an interview with the Chief of the General Staff of the French Army, General François Lecointre. It was dedicated to "the growing number of challenges for the French state." General Lecointre predicted that "by 2030, the likelihood of armed conflict will increase significantly." In this case, we are talking about military conflicts in which France itself can participate.


Attention is drawn to the fact that the general sees the main danger for France not so much in the growing number of illegal immigrants, pandemic, and terrorism, but in Russia and China. According to Lecointre, it is these states of the world that "challenge the world order." Apparently, we are talking about the "world order" that was established all these years by the United States of America and which, judging by the general's rhetoric, was quite satisfactory for the French elite.

The general notes that the international terrorism of France, of course, threatens, but "by 2030 there will be other challenges."

The journalists directly asked the Chief of the General Staff of the French Armed Forces about what specific threat Russia poses to the country. According to General Lecointre, "This threat to France from Russia can be seen in the example of Ukraine."

Lecointre:

Russia is carrying out a large-scale rearmament. She, like China, is becoming a very aggressive rival. And this rivalry is imposed everywhere: from submarine forces to outer space. While we are in the stage of rejection of the current situation.

According to the general, France is worried that Russia is "trying to weaken the democratic model." At the same time, Lecointre said that the presence of the Russian Federation in Africa, as well as the presence of China and Turkey there, "is destabilizing."

Apparently, according to the general's logic, only the French presence can have a "stabilizing" character in Africa. At the same time, the general does not say where, in this case, the stabilization of the situation in the state of Mali, in which the French contingent has been present for many years ... Lecointre on this occasion states that "the presence there is likely to be long."

French general:

The future of Europe is based on defense and security. While we are at a crossroads. If you make a mistake, you can turn to the direction in which Europe will simply disappear from the international arena.

And what is the presence of Europe in this arena now expressed? In the endless exaggeration of the sanctions theme, the implementation of Washington's directives and the promotion of their "values" where such values ​​are frankly alien?

              Henry Ford is credited with the phrase, "Isolate the 50 richest Jews and the wars will end."

              Here, only, Ford himself not only had sympathy for the Nazis, but to a large extent thanks to American investments, Hitler came to power, unleashing World War II, in which the United States received colossal profits and enslaved the whole world.
              Now there is the United States, the leaders and masters of world capitalism, and their big "six" henpecked countries, which includes France.

              It is strange that no one accuses the United States of a new invasion of "barbarians" in Europe, of unleashing many wars, the actual creation and sponsoring of global terrorism, like the COVID-19 pandemic, of which all traces go to the Americans.

              When and how the Anglo-Saxons will answer for their crimes, who would know, but sooner or later they will have to answer for their sins.

    This is a rather primitive technology of switching attention from the main problems of France to the problems of secondary or completely invented, and this creature uses typical terms of common people: "challenge the world order." Such an opus is already causing laughter.
    It seems that this general did not come out by chance after the well-known letter from the French military. It seems that the careerist general received the CU and ran to talk about the "evil Russians" and "evil Chinese" amid the general hooting of the French military.
    Incidentally, it seems that common people simply need an "evil Russia" in order to divert the attention of their citizens, who are increasingly dissatisfied with the social and migration policy. So I think that even if we had not taken Crimea, had not helped Donbass, we would still have been "evil", "bad" and also imposed by sanctions. So Russia needs to act only on the basis of its own interests, not being afraid to move or offend someone. Since the sanctions and charges will be regardless of our actions.

    Why are our generals silent? One Defense Secretary Says? He is a politician, and politicians tend to generalize many facts. And then we will discuss for a long time and painfully that the people were not warned about the aggression of the West, they considered all partners, the French in particular. The Frenchman forgot, in particular, to note that Russia is not going to attack anyone, including Africa and France. In contrast to the NATO countries and the United States, which openly declare Russia an enemy and outline plans to dismember it into parts and zones of occupation since the 1990s.

    If it were not for the USSR, it is Russia, then you would now be the French not in the camp of the victors, but in the camp of the occupied, like Germany and Japan. You have to pray for Stalin and the USSR every day, and do not forget that in 1945 the US had an occupation administration for France, as well as the colonial dollar.

    This toad from the General Staff called for the resignation of honest French soldiers whose letter was published by Valeurs Actuelles magazine, in which they warned of a civil war provoked by religious extremism among refugees from the Maghreb and the Middle East, countries in whose destruction France also took part.

    Europe will always be at odds with Russia as long as the Americans and the Britons have weight in the world. Amers need it, otherwise they will be blown away. Therefore, they will do everything to ensure that there is a conflict between Europe and Russia. But within the EU, there is also some kind of rivalry, almost all countries "look back" at Germany. Its potential as a powerful power is still great. That is why the Americans do not remove their bases from its territory. If America's dictatorship weakens, Europe will boil.
