Second round of fire.
The new military forum, active this time, which has been on everyone's lips since Le Parisien revealed the preparation, was unveiled this Sunday evening by the site of Current values.
This letter is intended to support the one previously published on the site of the same weekly
and this time it is signed by soldiers in service, but who have kept their anonymity for fear of reprisals from their hierarchy.
A while posted on the blog Place d'Armes, it has since been deleted from this page.
But Current Values published it in full this Sunday evening, inviting “the citizens” to sign it as well.
The rostrum is addressed to "Mr. President of the Republic, Ladies and Gentlemen, Ministers, Members of Parliament, General Officers, in your ranks and qualities".
By way of introduction, the signatories claim the 7th verse of the Marseillaise of the children's verse.
Active soldiers wish to follow their glorious elders.

5 minutes to understand the forum of ex-soldiers
“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.
Under these conditions, it is up to us, who have recently entered the quarry, to enter the arena just to have the honor of telling the truth there ”, declare these soldiers, whose exact number is unknown.
Those who claim to be from the “generation of fire”, from operations outside the Sahel, among others, recall their status.
“If we cannot, by law, express ourselves with our face uncovered, it is just as impossible for us to be silent,” they say.
“Almost all of us have known Operation Sentinel.
We saw with our own eyes the abandoned suburbs, the accommodation with delinquency.
We have undergone the attempts to instrumentalize several religious communities, for whom France means nothing - nothing but an object of sarcasm, contempt or even hatred ”, underlines the very vindictive text.
"Civil war is brewing in France and you know it perfectly"
Once again supporting the first forum of retired senior officers, the signatories further accentuate the ideological trait. “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 ”, supports the new forum.
The disintegration of France is again the leitmotif. “We have seen this decline in many countries in crisis. It precedes the collapse. It announces chaos and violence, and contrary to what you are asserting here or there, this chaos and this violence will not come from a
but from a civil insurrection ”, they defend themselves before the accusations of appeal. to the putsch. "Yes, again, civil war is brewing in France and you know it perfectly", hammers this text with patriotic accents.
Will this new forum make as much noise as the first? Initialed by soldiers for the most part retired, it had caused political turmoil and registered the support of Marine Le Pen. The government ended up reacting publicly, the army too. The chief of staff of the armies, General Lecointre, had promised in our columns heavy sanctions. Since then, the military hierarchy has reminded the troops of their duty of reserve. A call to order which obviously did not dissuade the signatories of this new text.
