Ongoing protests seem to be taxing police forces across France. Macron sends military units to assist with keeping the peace. Additionally they received authorization to open fire in case of threat to civilians or to themselves.
You know what they say, when you can’t convince them with your words, when you can’t gain their admiration via your actions - just crack down with brutal military suppression, if you can’t have their love, have their fear. The EU way.
Is this why the 2nd Ammendment exists?
o look brown shirts
Remember the end to "V for Vendetta", I don't think that will happen here.
welp macron officially morphed into a regime. I'm sure this will end peacefully now /sarc
Huh... Yet America doesn't declare someone else the president...
load the cannons and fire upon the "royalists"!
This. Is. Insane. Deploying the military against civilians. Maybe they should have thought about it before years of selling out government to the highest bidder. The wave is coming, and that's why the Western media isn't reporting on the Yellow Vest movement, they know they will only be fueling their own removal.
no state should ever use their military against their people. If it's getting to that point leaders need to step down and new elections need to take place
Let them eat cake eh Macron...
"French Military". Theee's your oxymoron for the day.
A military who would literally cry over spilled milk.
How long before he attempts to call Trump for reinforcements?
A democratic government should never use its military in its civilian population. This denotes a loss of control by the government. As someone else mentioned this perhaps could be the start of the EU army. When France brings in foreign troops or God forbid their legion. You can then mark the days of legitimized fascism.
The military should do the right thing by the people and wipe out the government so the people can start again.
so the US is going to sanction France and declare someone else president, right?
you think the left/media would go nuts over this, martial law is basicly fassisim. oh wait that's right, it's fine when they are the ones in power
idk this doesn't sound too much like government suppression guys, unless we're being lied to about the looting and vandalism. and they've been lighting cars and shit on fire if I remember right, you can't really call it the new brown shirts if they aren't just peacefully protesting right? or am I missing somthing?
history has shown that it is always a good idea to use your military against your citizens! what could go wrong??
Macron is bitchmade
This can’t end badly.Not like the French people are known for...uh...violent revolutions.
this is the start of the new French revolution
