Hollande admits arming Syrian rebels in breach of embargo – book:

The French president has admitted delivering weapons to the Syrian rebels during a period of EU embargo, a new book about to be published in France reveals.

The deliveries took place in 2012, before the embargo was canceled in May 2013, according to François Hollande’s last year interview with journalist and writer Xavier Panon. “We began when we were certain they would end up in the right hands. For the lethal weapons it was our services who delivered them,” Hollande told the writer, AFP reports.

Panon used the interview in his book “In the Corridors of French Diplomacy” which comes out in France this month.

The Fire Rises: Can France’s Hollande Ban Protests That Involve Millions?

The Fire Rises: Can France’s Hollande Ban Protests That Involve Millions?:

“[Hollande] may actually do it, but people will just start breaking the law. [Hollande] should start negotiating and stop making idle threats,” Hedley tells Loud & Clear host Brian Becker, referring to the French president’s threat to ban mass protests is real.

Asked why Hollande would make such threats if he can’t effectively stop the protests, Hedley notes that this move is hard for him to understand, but assumes the president is acting out of panic. The last demonstration in Paris involved, by some estimates, one million people, in addition to protests in other French provinces.

“He can’t honestly believe he can legislate this out of existence,” Hedley says.

The President Of France Wants Eurozone Members To Transfer Their Sovereignty To A United States Of Europe

The President Of France Wants Eurozone Members To Transfer Their Sovereignty To A United States Of Europe (Economic Collapse,. July 19, 2015):

The President of France has come up with a very creative way of solving the European debt crisis.  On Sunday, a piece authored by French President Francois Hollande suggested that the ultimate solution to the problems currently plaguing Europe would be for every member of the eurozone to transfer all of their sovereignty to a newly created federal government.  In other words, it would essentially be a “United States of Europe”.  This federal government would have a prime minister, a parliament, a federal budget and a federal treasury.  Presumably, the current national governments in Europe would continue to function much like state governments in the U.S. do.  In the end, there may be some benefits to such a union – particularly for the weaker members of the eurozone.  But at what cost would those benefits come?
