French Defense Ministry has decided to reduce the number of army on 34 thousands of people

The French Ministry of Defense has prepared a draft law, which six years later 246 thousand military men will remain as part of the republic’s armed forces instead of the current 280 thousand people.


A reduction in the number of French troops on the 10 of thousands of people was planned by the administration of the previous president, Nicolas Sarkozy. The current leadership of the military department intends to liquidate 2019 by thousands of posts by 24, according to ITAR-TASS.

It is reported that 8 will be reduced by thousands of troops in the combatant units, 16 thousands of hardware posts will be eliminated. The number of French troops abroad will be reduced from 30 thousand to 15-20 thousand. Nuclear deterrence forces will not suffer reductions.

According to the bill, state-owned blocks of shares in a number of defense enterprises will be privatized, and some military frequencies will be sold to mobile operators and digital television. The sale of land and buildings released as a result of reductions will bring about 300 million euros in 2014 year. About 3 billion euros will be saved by refusing unpaid military orders. As a result of the cuts, the French treasury should receive about 6 billion euros.

          Somehow it happened that such people gathered in the most elite unit of the US special forces. They tried to use them during the capture of Iranian students by employees of the Amer embassy. And Even before this point, the British specialists were saying that the presence of muscles does not replace the lack of a brain. What happened in the future. Those Spenaz residents failed miserably. They failed in the future. They do not have a single successful operation. It seems that the French are trying to follow this path. Oland, raging!

    Yeah, the Blue Companies. laughing But seriously, the information slipped through that the USA is developing new types of “non-lethal weapons”, as one of the directions is gas that causes vomiting and diarrhea, but the most terrible one that causes uncontrollable attacks of “intercourse”, and do not care for anyone ..! This is not a humane weapon at all! Let them experience the NATO forces am

    In the film “We Were Soldiers,” at the very beginning, two American generals, when discussing cases in Vietnam after a drape from there of the French army, say that “the Vietnamese have already defeated the French army,” and the other asks with irony: “The French army, but what is this ? ". This" valiant "army had the last victory when? Under Napoleon? Well, okay, during the First World War. If they cut something there and nobody will notice anything. They really have two more armies: migrants and gays, What is this? Secret weapon?

    In total, the French treasury should receive about 6 billion euros as a result of reductions.

    From fagots, homosexuals and lesbians coming to France it will not save. I think so!

    the French army can be divided into two wings - the French army and the foreign legion. all the black work in the shoulders of the legion. I do not think that they will be reduced.

    In my opinion, we have already passed this, complete garbage happened. But nothing is sorry for the French partners, I suggest sending on a business trip to convey the experience of General Tabouretkin. I’m ready not to be stingy and pay the courier to travel in a reserved seat car to Paris itself. Well? you need to be closer to the people, there, his mistress has also recently fiercely supported the Russian auto industry, driving around VAZ brands to court hearings.
