EMMANUEL MACRON has threatened to punish active soldiers that backed calls by 25 retired generals for a military takeover to halt France’s “disintegration” at the hands of Islamists.
The Generals suggested that if nothing is done to respond to their concerns, there would be a sudden “explosion” and need for a military coup to topple the government. Around 1,000 servicemen, including some 20 retired generals, put their names to the letter.
Macron’s already despised. If he tries to take on the Army I think it really will be civil war.
