Response to the call of a thousand military personnel
On April 20 and 25, 2021 we published on the site “When the soldiers speak, the hour is serious” as well as “For a return of the honor of our rulers”: 20 generals call on Macron to defend patriotism “.
In response to these publications, Rear Admiral Claude Gaucherand and various officers made the following communiqué which they jointly signed:
RESPONSE TO THE APPEAL OF THE THOUSAND MILITARY PERSONNEL.
Judging that there is danger in the house of France, twenty generals of the second section and more than a thousand soldiers drawn from the reserve cadre have launched an appeal to government authorities. Here without a spirit of controversy is the personal opinion of a group of citizens who have in common to have served for an active period of their lives as officers in one of the three Armed Forces. It is in this capacity that they share an anxiety concerning the present and future of France that more or less in the near term they will bequeath to their descendants.
In doing this however no one is claiming to represent the opinion of active military personnel nor to suggest any involvement on the part of the latter, those who are dedicated to serve their nation as a whole, actively and often at peril of their lives.
“The hour is serious, France is in peril, several mortal dangers threaten her.
It is therefore imperative that those who run our country find the courage to eradicate these dangers. To do this, it is often enough to apply existing laws without weakness. Remember that, like us, a large majority of our fellow citizens are overwhelmed by your dawdling and culpable silences.”
These military personnel make an observation that we can only share in its generality but it appears more debatable when one came to the more precise choice of the said dangers.
As for the solution to eradicate the great peril, it appears to be nothing more than a pious wish.
In effect, when one wishes to heal a wrong, it is appropriate to distinguish between the symptoms and the root of the wrong properly identified, and therefore to distinguish palliative care as physicians call it from curative treatment. They are complementary. The first without the second does not work and, more often, the second is not humanely supportable without the contribution of the first.
It is in this approach that our disagreement resides, for if we agree on the definition of these dangers they seem to us to be the simple symptoms of a more profound illness, the roots of which it is necessary to attack if one wants France to survive. Is it not illusory to demand of those who are administering the poison, in a manner that is probably consciously and doubtless in all sincerity, to really want to change the syringe for us to inject the antidote?
In its great majority our political class, that is served by a parliamentary system which is more than secular, has for decades been led astray by high finance which holds the purse strings and controls the mass media and which therefore decides who will or will not be elected, is served in that by all sorts of relays which are among others Bilderberg, Davos, the CRIF, and the brotherhoods.
This political class which Jean Pierre Chevènement had so lucidly described as equal-to-itself, served by a solid and deferential administration, is only there to execute the dictates of those who hold power, that is, high finance, dictates relayed by the organisation of the European Community composed of more than 25,000 bureaucrats who had been elected by no one but who are invested with the authority which treaties confer on them.
So whether it is immigration, the disintegration of the nation and the multiplication of lawless zones, the violence and the growth of hatred between communities, the political class at the controls only follows the roadmap dictated to it before leading to the destruction of the very old nation which we are, symbolic obstacle to rising globalism which it is necessary to make disappear.
This, which places France mortally in peril, is quite simply the unbridled liberalism which is inscribed in the marble of the treaties called European being translated by the de-industrialisation of the country just as much as by the lowering of our language, the use of ‘globish’ by the media, the intrusive publicity and … the Head of State himself; it is also the destruction of the tool of nuclear energy and the policy of self-flagellation at the highest level and on every occasion; it is still more the disintegration of national education and of the policy of public health; finally it is the placing in residence under surveillance of 66 million French people with the obligatory wearing of a muzzle [mask].
It is all of this which underlines our servile alignment to the Anglo-Saxon political and military doctrine which our membership of NATO and our lost sovereignty materialise.
Dear military comrades, here is that which we think it is our duty to respond to you.
Your appeal deservedly talks of the yellow vests. And if this were the way which finally permits one to attack the evil at the root while applying the measures which you advocate for your palliative treatment of which our nation feels a very urgent need? Let us recall this brief citation from the then President Charles de Gaulle: “France has need of a project”. In no case does it have need of a civil war.

Translation of Second Military Appeal to the French Government.
There is now the possibility for the general public to sign it on and from 11 May 2021. There were almost 250,000 signatures on May 11th at 18.00h.
Editorial Introduction: [Exclusive] Sign the new military forum
For a few days, the rumor had been running that a new military platform was going to be unveiled. Coming from active soldiers, it supports the one previously published on the site of Current Values. This text, which is already circulating a lot and which the media echo, we have decided to publish it this evening. And to open it, at the bottom of this platform, for the signature of French citizens who would find it up to the challenges that are ours. While continuing, with a demanding methodology, to make ourselves available to military professionals who wish to take part. Like the previous one, the purpose of this forum is not to undermine our institutions but to alert people to the gravity of the situation.
To the President of the Republic,
Ministers, Members of Parliament,
General Officers, in your ranks and qualities,
We no longer sing the seventh verse of the Marseillaise, known as the “children’s verse”. Yet it is rich in lessons. Let us leave it to that verse to lavish them on us:
“We will enter the quarry when our elders are gone. We will find their dust there, and the traces of their virtues. Much less jealous of surviving them than of sharing their coffin, we will have the sublime pride of avenging them or of following them.”
Our elders are fighters who deserve to be respected. These are for example the old soldiers whose honor you have trampled on in recent weeks. It is these thousands of servants of France, signatories of a platform of common sense, soldiers who gave their best years to defend our freedom, obeying your orders, to wage your wars or to implement your budgetary restrictions, which you soiled while the people of France supported them.
These people who fought against all the enemies of France, you have treated them as factious when their only fault is to love their country and to mourn its visible downfall.
So it’s up to us, who recently entered the career, to step into the arena just to have the honor of telling the truth.
We are what the newspapers have called “the generation fire”. Men and women, active soldiers, of all armies and of all ranks, of all sensibilities, we love our country. These are our only claims to fame. And if we cannot, by law, express ourselves with our face uncovered, it is just as impossible for us to be silent.
Afghanistan, Mali, the Central African Republic or elsewhere, a number of us have experienced enemy fire. Some have left comrades there. They offered their skins to destroy the Islamism you are making concessions to on our soil.
Almost all of us have known Operation Sentinel. We saw with our own eyes the abandoned suburbs, the accommodation with delinquency. We have endured the attempts to instrumentalize several religious communities, for whom France means nothing – nothing but an object of sarcasm, contempt and even hatred.
We marched on July 14th. And this benevolent and diverse crowd, which acclaimed us because we are the emanation of it, we were asked to beware of it for months, by forbidding us to circulate in uniform, by making us potential victims, on a soil that we are nevertheless capable of defending.
Yes, our elders are right on the substance of their text, in its entirety. We see violence in our towns and villages. We see communitarianism taking hold in public space, in public debate. We see hatred for France and its history becoming the norm.
It may not be for the military to say that, you will argue. On the contrary: because we are apolitical in our assessments of the situation, it is a professional observation that we deliver. Because this decline, we have seen it in many countries in crisis. It precedes the collapse. It announces chaos and violence, and contrary to what you are asserting here and there, this chaos and this violence will not come from a “military pronunciamento” but from a civil insurrection.
To quibble about the shape of our elders’ platform instead of acknowledging the obviousness of their findings, you have to be cowardly. To invoke a duty of reserve badly interpreted in order to silence French citizens, one must be very deceitful. In order to encourage senior military officials to take a stand and expose themselves, before fiercely sanctioning them whenever they write anything other than battle stories, you have to be very perverse.
Cowardice, deceit, perversion: this is not our view of the hierarchy. On the contrary, the army is, par excellence, the place where we speak truthfully to each other because we commit our lives. It is this confidence in the military institution that we call for.
Yes, if a civil war breaks out, the military will maintain order on its own soil, because it will be asked to. This is even the definition of civil war. No one can want such a terrible situation, our elders no more than us, but yes, again, civil war is brewing in France and you know it perfectly well.
The cry of alarm of our Ancients finally sends back to more distant echoes. Our elders are the resistance fighters of 1940, whom people like you very often treated as factious, and who continued the fight while the legalists, transfixed with fear, were already betting on concessions with evil to limit the damage. ; these are the hairy 14, who died for a few meters of land, while you abandon, without reacting, entire districts of our country to the law of the strongest; they are all the dead, famous or anonymous, fallen at the front or after a lifetime of service.
All our elders, those who made our country what it is, who designed its territory, defended its culture, gave or received orders in its language, did they fight for you to let France become a failed state , which replaces its increasingly obvious sovereign powerlessness with a brutal tyranny against those of its servants who still want to warn it?
Take action, ladies and gentlemen. This time it is not about emotion on command, ready-made formulas or media coverage. It’s not about extending your (electoral) mandates or winning new ones. It is about the survival of our country, of your country.
Looking at French history, this sounds like the harbinging of the end of the Fifth Republic and the seeds of the Sixth. Based on the duration of her previous republics, the current one is getting a little long in the tooth.
As an American it is interesting to see that not only is there a similar wave of cultural destruction occurring in France as here, but that there are people in France and here, that recognize it for the evil that it is.
Your observation is correct. However, I need to add that we are not only talking about the cultural destruction of France, but that of Western Europe. What we currently have is the third Muslim invasion of Europe. The first invasion began in the 8th century, in the year 711 with the Arab invasion of Spain (only stopped in what is current day France by Charles Martel at the Battle of Poitiers in 732). After that came the Turkish invasions which began in the 14th century. The third invasion started after World War Two, when an invading army of false migrants and refugees invaded Europe armed with passports – real or fake – instead of weapons. This third invasion is compliments of globalists, who are using immigrants to destroy sovereign European states. The chief globalist tool is the banker created EU.
The letters written by French generals and lower ranks are a bad omen for Europe, primarily for Western Europe. The continent is slowly returning to the Dark Ages of barbarism, compliments of both globalists and Muslim immigrants, who regard European soil on which they now live as conquered soil, being transferred from Christian to Muslim rule. It is laughable nonsense to expect Muslim immigrants to assimilate to Christian European ways, when Islam in fact means ‘submission’.
The ethnic problems of Europe will only deteriorate until a day comes when we shall have open conflicts, which are going to be none too pleasant.
1st of christian control of planet earth is over with. 2ndly, if european countries did want immigrants then they should have stayed at home and not created colonies all over the world. 3rdly, if europe had not partaken of every war whether proxy or not in middle east this century and before than refugee issue would be much less. we do not see Algeria telling france what to do like macron tried to do in syria (and many others). europe created the mess not intentionally but through bad choices and hubris. the lies of the last one-hundred years are coming out and coming out. 4thly, though I know muslims from all over the world never have they tried to make me muslim- like many christians whom try to make me christian, so to say europe is risking falling to muslim rule is neither true nor reality.
to count on the french military- whom have had carte blanche this century- to think they could solve problem is absolutely absurd. french military is all over france and has been for years…and have solved nothing but make situation worst. the west is not failing because of any reason other that in itself it has become the failure, now is the time to see, accept and look through the failure for new changes and better conscious reality! but, when most french do not know nor have read a foucault or a merleau-ponty well um ok next generation. but they all know the idiocy of descartes!
Though I understand the feelings of these Frenchmen, or any other group in any other country for that matter who feel similarly, we must remember one thing, Jesus’s words: “Do unto others what you’d like them to do unto you… He who kills by the sword will die by the sword.”
When you, military guys, go into an Islamic country to kill Muslims, you went there because those very same politicians, whom you are now denouncing having a perfidious agenda, sent you into those countries to do their dirty, zionist-inspired work. And once there you gladly did what they sent you there to do. Maybe you reluctantly kill, but kill you probably did.
So now that the words of the Almighty are biting you in the ass in your own country because of what you did as per the orders of those so-called ignoble politicians or unelected bureaucrats, you are now complaining to these very same people who sent you to kill Muslims about certain Muslim conditions in your country.
I’m sorry, but what’s wrong with this picture?
Read my comment again. Although you are probably not a Muslim, but what you wrote is a typical Muslim response, playing the blind man who sees “nothing”. The Muslims who come to Europe have a very vulgar expression when it comes to defeating Christians. I will not repeat this expression, but I will paraphrase it. What they are saying is that Muslims will defeat the Christians with their high birth rates. Look at the Muslim birth rates in Europe.
maybe if the french military did what they should have done in spanish civil war- attack threat of fascism – then well maybe a different story today. the french have spend centuries exploiting muslim people all over the globe.
they installed a vichy far-right govt -which remnants clearly exist today while they let the russians defeat hitler. then along with their fascist patriots in the usa and england declared victory. the french then did false flags in asia, to force americans there and into the vietnam war. the french military long ago lost their nobility and honor.
france is today and has been a fervent nationalist entity. many french truly believe they are entitled to all and everything, while of course having the best country anywhere. all lies.
france does not work because the french sold themselves out to the socialist/nationalist rhetoric that other fascists tried to earlier install. so, the people get their handouts, but most work less than 7% of their life. then a bloated govt makes endless stupid rules that make production a mere after thought. the gilet jaunes were not wrong, except by the fact that many have never really provided labor for the handouts they do expect. and as crazy as it seems, the french system shows how the trickle down economy theory helps! which is of course absurd, yet if you take away the 20% whom work their tails off, then system would fall apart.
france is a failure because of the above issues. muslims have little to do with problems faced by a ruined nation. maybe if france was not so secular than things would be better! perhaps a bit more tolerance would be beneficial. but, do christians really accept other beliefs? hardly. in fact, the opposite is true. france is between a rock and a hard place and there is nothing to do. They could make changes, but that is not possible or so it appears. their handling of the virus game clears says: we want more power and we will continue until we are stopped. but it is the people whom must stop this, not the military.
Excellent, excellent comment!
(Removed insult,MOD) Want to know more about what goes on in France better listen to people who truly know because they have studied the matter thoroughly, like for instance the lawyer François Boulo.
It looks like the attempt at ethnic replacement of native French people is not going as smoothly as planned
I read in an encyclopedia of 20th century literature that anti-Jewish prejudice has always been strong in France. The following snippets might be so interpreted:
“In its great majority our political class, served by a parliamentary system which is more than secular, has for decades been led astray by high finance which holds the purse strings and controls the mass media and which therefore decides who will or will not be elected…. by all sorts of relays which are among others Bilderberg, Davos, the CRIF [Representative Council of French Jewish Institutions], and the [Masonic?] brotherhoods.
This political class … is only there to execute the dictates of those who hold power, that is, high finance,…” …. leading to the [planned] destruction of the very old nation which we are, symbolic obstacle to rising globalism …”
well at the very least they are telling it as it is … other conclusions may be drawn from this, as you say. This all spells trouble for France and Europe. That the ‘better educated’ sections of European society are now going public with their detestation of the neoliberal disaster capitalism culture war order, that gets worse every year, it would be not only arrogant but dangerous to ignore this. However as we can see in the MSM it is exactly what the west is doing. France has been seriously divided and on the rocks for several years now, all it is going to take is one spark to ignite the tinder box and then it will be the army that has to deal with it, from what I can see one of the first things they will be doing is heading to the Elysee palace to change the order of things. Macron (and banker friends) can’t say they haven’t been warned.
One can hope this will spark a global pushback against the lawlessness of the global financial elite. The US military has not spoken out yet in any similar way, though some were anticipating such with the events of January 6 amounting to a coup d’etat by people who felt too threatened by democracy to let it have a chance in Washington. Rumored witch hunts in the military and the treatment of the national guardsmen who were called in to defend the putsch speak of an undertow of silent resistance. I am heartened that the French military is still able to speak out. I fear that the US military has been commandeered.
A small immigration population in a host country is hardly a cause for concern but when it becomes so large that it actually starts to change the makeup of an entire country and not for the good its time to speak up. As for actions the only recourse is what is found in the books of Nehemiah and Ezra:
“I rebuked them and called curses down on them. I beat some of the men and pulled out their hair. I made them take an oath in God’s name and said: “You are not to give your daughters in marriage to their sons, nor are you to take their daughters in marriage for your sons or for yourselves. Was it not because of marriages like these that Solomon king of Israel sinned? Among the many nations there was no king like him. He was loved by his God, and God made him king over all Israel, but even he was led into sin by foreign women. Must we hear now that you too are doing all this terrible wickedness and are being unfaithful to our God by marrying foreign women?” (Nehemiah 13:25–27)
“Within the three days, all the men of Judah and Benjamin had gathered in Jerusalem. And on the twentieth day of the ninth month, all the people were sitting in the square before the house of God, greatly distressed by the occasion and because of the rain. Then Ezra the priest stood up and said to them, “You have been unfaithful; you have married foreign women, adding to Israel’s guilt. Now honor the Lord, the God of your ancestors, and do his will. Separate yourselves from the peoples around you and from your foreign wives.” (Ezra 10:9–11)
