When the French people were "gaslit" into voting for Emmanuel Macron as French President, we all feared the worst. Here was a globalist shill who would do the bidding of the "new world order," etc., etc. Well, the jury is still out on that, and let's face it, France's problems are only ever going to be solved by strong, positive nationalism. 

But there are at least promising signs that Macron is his own man, rather than some mere puppet, after his latest statement on Syria, given in an interview to several newspapers on Wednesday (21st June). Macron's position reverses the pointless opposition to President Basher al-Assad on the basis that there is legitimate or suitable alternative, and essentially lines up France's policy with Russia's and against America, which resolutely demands the ousting of Assad.

In the interview Macron said:
"The new perspective that I have had on this subject is that I have not stated that Bashar al-Assad's departure is a pre-condition for everything because nobody has shown me a legitimate successor...My lines are clear: Firstly, a complete fight against all the terrorist groups. They are our enemies. We need everybody's cooperation, especially Russia, to eradicate them."
He hedged this slightly by saying that Assad was "an enemy of the Syrian people," but added that he was "not an enemy of France."

On Tuesday (June 20th) France's Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian was in Moscow, pushing for closer co-operation with Russia and a renewed "spirit of trust." Regarding his new "bestie," Vladimir Putin, Macron said:
"I don't think he has an unshakeable friendship with Assad. He has two obsessions, fighting terrorism and avoiding a failed state, and so that's why convergent views on Syria appear." 
Like a consummate politician, the French President also threw America a bone, but an extremely small one, saying he would take a hard line on Syrian use of chemical weapons, perhaps knowing full well that there is no conclusive proof of Syria ever having used such weapons.

"The use of chemical weapons will see a response, including by France alone," he said. "France will therefore be completely aligned with the United States on this."
The actual bone Macron threw America.

  1. Why is the survival of a tin-pot dictator from the Levant such important for people from Europe or the US who adhere to ethnic nationalism which benefits white ethnic groups?
