It was stated that 16 retired generals in France sent a file to the political groups in the National Assembly demanding the development of a “global strategy against Islamism and the disintegration of France” and warning of “civil war”.
In a special report of Le Journal du Dimanche magazine, it was stated that, according to one of the signatory retired generals, this document was not linked to the e-declaration published on the website of the far-right Valeurs Actuelles magazine, in which retired generals warned President Emmanuel Macron of the danger of civil war.
However, it was stated that two of the generals who signed this file were among the signatories of the declaration in the Valeurs Actuelles.
In the 21-page file sent by the 16 retired generals to the political groups in the Parliament on 14 April, it was argued that a “global strategy against Islamism and the disintegration of France” should be developed.
“THE BEST POSSIBLE CIVIL WAR, THE WORST IMMEDIATE DEFEAT WITHOUT THE WORST POSSIBLE FUTURE”
The following statements were included in the file:
“Hybrid war against us has been declared. This war is multifaceted. It will end in a civil war at best, or at worst in a brutal defeat with no future. A hybrid war has been started against Europe and France. To win this war, psychological, sociological, spiritual, educational, legal and criminal weapons should be created. “
It was shared that 16 retired generals who signed the file are members of the Inter-Army Thought Society (CRI), which works on defense issues.
OPEN LETTER PUBLISHED ON APRIL 21
Soldiers, including 20 retired generals and retired and active officers, published an open letter on the Valeurs Actuelles website on April 21, claiming that there is growing chaos in the country, warning President Macron that if this chaos is not prevented, there will be civil war.
In the letter, which claimed that “Islamism” and the inhabitants of the suburbs caused social division in France, the soldiers argued that the rulers should eliminate these dangers.
