French President Warns Of Immediate Military Intervention Hours After Reporting Soaring Unemployment

Tyler Durden's picture





 

While we are sure it is just a coincidence that hours after his nation reports record and soaring unemployment rates, French President Hollande announces a doubling of troops in Central African Republic (CAR) deciding to "intervene immediately" after the UN authorization, adding "this intervention will be quick. It has no vocation to last and I'm sure it will be a success,"

  • *FRANCE HAS DUTY TO INTERVENE, HOLLANDE SAYS
  • *HOLLANDE SAYS CENTRAL AFRICA MASSACRES CONTINUING
  • *HOLLANDE SAYS SITUATION CENTRAL AFRICA `ALARMING, FRIGHTENING'

The US State Department "welcomes France's decision to reinforce its military presence," adding that, the US is "appalled by today's reports of the murder of innocent women and children outside of Bangui."

Of course, it wouldn't be the modern-day war without drones, and as IB Times reports, a fleet of five unarmed drones will help U.N. troops monitor the vast Central African country of 66 million people, which has been plagued by violent militias for decades.

 

Hollande... (via DPA),

French President Francois Hollande said Thursday he had decide to intervene "immediately" in the Central African Republic, after the United Nations authorized an intervention by African and French forces.

 

France would double its current troop deployment of 600 "within a few days, if not a few hours," Hollande said in an address from the Elysee Palace.

 

"This intervention will be quick. It has no vocation to last and I'm sure it will be a success," he said, pledging to regularly brief the nation on its progress.

 

Hollande emphasized that France would be acting "together with Africans and the support of European partners" and assured that the country has "no other objective than to save human lives."

From the US State Dept.

The United States remains committed to supporting the international community's efforts to find a solution that protect civilians, restores security, ensures greater humanitarian access, and puts CAR on a path back to democratic governance.

Drone use raises questions...(Via IB Times),

"Such high-technology systems allow a better knowledge of what is happening on the ground, which allows a force to better do its job," said Hervé Ladsous, U.N. Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations.

 

...

 

But there are some concerns about the U.N. drone program's transparency and regulatory framework. “Congo is in many ways a laboratory for U.N. peacekeepers with a range of equipment and a range of experiments being used,” said Phil Clark, a political professor at the University of London's School of Oriental and African Studies, to Deutsche Welle. “But I think there are big questions here. Such as, what is it like for a non-state actor to use drones and this type of equipment, what kind of information will it be gathering, who exactly will have access to that information and what will they do with it and so I think we need a lot more clarity from the U.N. as to exactly how these drones will be used.

As the Keynesian train rolls on, when all else fails, declare war... all that non-deflatinary ammunition production and waste...

The issue with unemployment is that the status quo doesn't want the smart and willing to advance society. Plenty of work to do, but very little jobs because elites want to maintain control. Anything that can compete against the status quo is not an authorized (financed) work.

Unfortunately Boko Harem in Nigeria is now getting so large, sophisticated and AQ aligned they will over time de-stabilze the whole region. Nigeria simply not up to the task of running a modern counter insurgency.

Look at every conflict in this region and the common denominator is Islamists coming down from the North into Christian areas in the South.

It is kinda ugly.

Politicians hold back humanity as a species. All they know about is war. They do the same thing and hope for different result. That's called insanity. Politics attract the worst of our kin and they try hard to govern us lol. There will be a day in the future when people will be enlightened. You can feel it in the air. Some kind of uneasiness. There will be blood and I hope my life will make tree of liberty fluorish again.

Kuhscheisse! Every year hundreds of thousands of whites are robbed, raped, and murdered by blacks/Muslims in our own countries, and our government and media "elites" actively encourage it. Yet European peoples are supposed to give a shit about some foreigners dying thousands of miles away and give our children, lives, and money for the cause of global kum-ba-ya? Fucking surreal. This shit is gonna blow up big time, real soon.

Conscript 'em. Every last gangbanger and violent felon in every last state & federal prison. Kick 'em out of a C-130 somewhere over the Congo basin. Ammo airdropped separately to prevent in-flight incidences. "If you win, it's yours!" Good riddance. They were never cut out for civilization, so enjoy life without it.

They are only intervening because wealth is at risk. Either loss of security to French operations or a deployment to run off the Chinese. BX will be empty this weekend at Lemonier.

Hollande plus Cameron how comes that in both countries the most miserable are at the top.

Both have no vision at all except defending the status quo.  The most miserable are defending the miserable status quo. Both are useless idiots hindering their countries to move forward.

Think for a moment about the rich possibilities and the natural and human resources of France at home which are lieing waste. France is not overpopulated nore poor. It has the best agricultural land and water in abundance. It has a comparable very learned population. France lives in peace and nobody hinders them to make the best out of their very rich country. There is work in abundance in France for all Frenchmen and more. Who would not like to live in a good managed France ?

And what is Hollande doing, this miserable son of a bitch. Bringing war and death into areas far away from France. And for what reason ? Only for the reason that he and the ruling class in France do not intend to intend to introduce substantial changes trying to make something out of France for the benefit of the whole French population.  The powerful people just want that everything  stays as it is.

And Cameron is exactly the same kind of idiotic sociopath.

If Mali doesn't work out France could head back to Vietnam.
