Macron: France To Keep Its Forces In Syria This Year

French President Emmanuel Macron delivers a speech during his inauguration at the handover ceremony at the Elysee Palace in Paris, May 14, 2017.

France’s President Emmanuel Macron has vowed to keep his country’s troops in northeastern Syria this year in order to counter the threat of ISIS.

“The announced withdrawal of our American ally should not deflect us from our strategic objective to eradicate Daesh [ISIS],” Macron said in a speech in Toulouse to the armed forces on January 17, according to the Reuters news agency.

The French President also said that the recent attack on American troops in the northern Syrian city of Manbij shows that the battle against ISIS is still ongoing and claimed that next few months will be “decisive.”

“We will remain militarily engaged in the Levant in the international coalition … over the coming year,” he added

Last December, Macron slammed U.S. President Donald Trump decision to withdraw American forces from Syria and said that “an ally should be dependable,” in a sign to the alliance between the US-led coalition and the local Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

France is currently leading the efforts to maintain a Western military presence in northeastern Syria. While the European country claims that this presence is aimed at confronting ISIS, local observers believe that Paris is only trying to use the SDF as a tool to pressure Damascus.

Macron is likely willing to keep his troops in Syria even if the U.S. withdraws, which is a very complicated task that will likely fail.

    I say give the faggot Macron all the rope he wants.

  • Sinbad2

    The little dweeb Macron is so out of his depth.
    What was Rothschild thinking, sending a boy to do a mans job.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      and a queer midget to top it all.

    • Jens Holm

      Rotchild and others would be proud. France need those many very unpopular changes. Old men falling in their beards only has one vote and their women speak and has 1 vote too.

  • Tudor Miron

    Macron boy may say whatever he wants but facts is that him and his country is irrelevant in Syria.

    • Tommy Jensen

      For some reason “the Kurdish question” have been occupied all France Presidents and Governments ahead of all other State Affairs in the last 10 years. Only Rothschild knows why.

  • RichardD

    The backers and creators of the regime change terrorists, including Isis, are the very actors like France playing a double game fighting their own creation.

    When was the last time that any of these two faced hypocrits sanctioned the people funding and managing the terrorists? They haven’t sanctioned any terror funders and managers. Because they’d have to sanction themselves and their partners in crime.

    So the sanction and vilify the people destroying their terrorist proxies based on fabricated nonsense. And use false flags to attack the people destroying their terrorists.

  • Jens Holm

    Thank You Makron. I hope some more from the Coalisition will add some more support to that part of Syria.

    So far 4 of the ussual kind having no solutions for Syria at all writing nonsence again. For those all problems ogf theirs are nor local at all.

    • ruca

      What would you say if it were your country, your property that was occupied by uninvited, heavily armed ‘guests’?

      • Jens Holm

        Well,

        NR 1 is that Syria is no private proporty but Assads has regained new feudalism and made it into it.

        NR2 is, that if Assads was my Goverment, I would ask in any others in to help me kill the ant if it would not resign or emmigrate right away. That of course indlude, Its my country and I therefore would like to have military training as well as weapons.

        NR3, I would have a program for improving things. Here the first move would be, that we have many public elected from day one and will replace those not kill them.

        President only can be in 2 periods or 8 years as well as people like Assad and Erdogan only have half of the power and the incomming tax, because my country from then are Governed by TRUST – not fear and bajonets.

        So I do not feel the Coalition are occupiers but helpers for at least MY PART of the country keeping the bad guys from Syria and Turkey away as well as the little ones in Idlib.

        • ruca

          You’re such a delusional ziofag

          • Jens Holm

            “The Fag” was asked.

    • hhabana

      Get the hash our of your hookah. You are not thinking straight.

      • Jens Holm

        Do You have any solutions apart from killing and punishing many more 1000s.

        I DONT SEE THAT AT ALL.

      • Tudor Miron

        He’s thinking straight in one direction – “How do I get another 30 shekels”.

  • Pave Way IV

    The U.S. (((MSM))) is going out of its way to ignore or furiously censoring everything regarding French riot police and the Yellow Vest protester beat-downs. They don’t want the peons here in the States getting any ideas.

    It will be far worse this weekend in France, and Macron arming his Stazi with H&K G36s to kill French citizens isn’t going to help matters any. For whatever reason, Twitter has not yet censored Sotiri Dimpinoudis’ great coverage of the French victims. Check his tweets for what the police thug state coming to your neighborhood (soon) will look like.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      France is a total police state and infested with Jew parasites who put this faggot midget Macron in power.

  • Rob

    This is 5th generation war to weaken and then destroy countries. Israel, ISIS, Mujahideen, Al-Qaeda and Bokoharam are their nice tools and nice products for which France, Washington and GB should be blamed.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    The little Jew faggot pervert with cosmetic marriage to his grandmother has spoken. So there!

  • Tommy Jensen

    We didnt expect else from the globo-homo, women quoted, frog eating, State of Emergency France.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      He was exposed for having a homosexual relationship with his civilian beating bodyguard lover. Macron is faggot with a sham marriage to his ugly grandmother.

  • northerntruthseeker .

    Macron’s Jewish masters ordering him to stay..

  • hhabana

    What a stupid motherfucker! His countrymen are pissed off with his policies, migration invasion and a host of other problems and this stupid cunt wants to endanger his soldiers and waste precious tax dollars on Syria. What a filthy whore.

    I hope that fucking EU disintegrates. I hope the leaders in Austria, Italy and Hungary stand up to those bastards in Brussels.

    • Tudor Miron

      Filthy whore – that about sums it up.

    • Jens Holm

      He was elected to do so or close to, apart from Syria and the Coalition, which already was decided.

  • Drogba

    Bring back the Guillotine for these rothschild zionist scumbag banksters,who are making slaves out of the French and people everywhere under their Talmud ic control. And BDS their satanic rogue regime,israhell.

    • Jens Holm

  • You can call me Al

    “France is currently leading the efforts to maintain a Western military presence in northeastern Syria.”…….are you “scaredy cat” at being alone France ?.

    • Jens Holm

      France already has been in the Coalision for Years and are in Mali, Niger, Tchad as well as other places too.

      France is not alone, even I see no sense in being in Syria or ME.

  • Vitex

    Let them eat cake, Eugene

    • Jens Holm

      Thi sis not Venezuela. Its about making the cake better and bigger. They too often cant grow now only reproduce and get aldered.

      And no more icecreme unless You pay it for Your own money.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    I keep saying it, ERDOGAN HAS TO GO, the Germans will help bankroll the French to play their part and even the Brits may chip in too, the US will aid with equipment, logistics and intelligence, and then the’ll lure Erdogan into a trap that will end not just his insane ambition to expand in the region, but also end his continual meddling in EU affairs which they hate even more.
    In the end the French and Kurds will be trying to outdo each other to see just how many Turks they can kill.
    Erdogan’s did a deal to sacrifice HTS for his greater ambitions, but he still doesn’t realize he’s going to be the pig on the spit in the end no matter what he does.
    If what I just said makes absolutely no sense whatsoever, start paying attention to what Erdogan’s been doing to the Germans and French over the last decade, how he’s treated them, how they’ve reacted, and how he blatantly refuses diplomatic overtures, demands lopsided deals, concessions he doesn’t deserve and the EU can’t afford, blackmailed them, meddled in their domestic elections using the Muslim voting block to sway results, but the last straw was broken back in June/July last year. The EU doesn’t want any more refugees, even though they and Erdogan through their actions were the main cause of the refugee crisis in the first place, they wanted to stop the flow back in June/July.
    Erdogan just has to go, no one wants him to stay, 40% of Turks want to kill him at home, how could he ever be a stable presence in the future for anyone, Politics doesn’t work that way.
