Ralph Peters is a patriot and has much to offer in commentary and he’s definitely one of the straight shooters during his guest appearances on TV. And I really admire the guy and his Civil War Novels. But he hates Putin with an undying passion and it blinds him about certain issues. One is French President Macron. Here is what is said, in part, prior to the last round of voting
Even in today’s embittered, conflict-ridden world, the news is sometimes plain good. That was the case after Sunday’s first-round vote for president in France. Of the top four contenders, only one, Emmanuel Macron, has been pro-NATO, pro-European Union, pro-US and anti-Putin. He also had the audacity to tell the French they actually have to work, if they want a stronger economy.
But the fact is that Macron is an insane baby. He believes that a better world will result if the political process is balanced exactly between groups, So the candidates for the National Assembly his new party En Marche will field will be one half men, one half women, one half Conservative and one half Socialist/Communist. I don’t know if they’re going to be one half tall and one half short, one half brunette and one half blond but I wouldn’t put it past him. The man in legitimately nuts.
And while Colonel Peters is focused like a Moray eel on the threat Putin’s Russia offers Europe the western part of that landmass is surrendering to Moslem colonization while Russia remains unabashedly Christian. So I dunno Ralph, maybe you should get a grip because the fact was that there was no candidate with any hope of winning who was any good, French politics and political thought being as it is, just f__ked up beyond imagining.
