‘EU responsible for chaos in Syria’ – France’s Marine Le Pen

Marine Le Pen, leader of France’s National Front party, has accused the European Union of being responsible for the ongoing chaos in Syria. She added the EU has been too busy trying to overthrow Assad while Russia was actually fighting terrorists.

“You’ve done everything to bring down the government of Syria, throwing the country into a terrible civil war, while accusing Russia which is actually fighting Islamic State [IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL],” the right wing party leader and France’s presidential candidate said, speaking at the European Parliament plenary session in Strasbourg on Wednesday.

“You cannot hide your responsibility […] for plunging this part of the world into an absolutely monstrous chaos,”

    In saying that, she also criticizes Obama’s idiotic, infantile policy. He’s always in favor of protesters/rebels/counter-culturalists. It’s a remnant from his student days as a parasite and idiot.

    Syria …..back to Hill
    “Clinton refused to sign a peace deal with Libyan president Muammar
    Gaddafi because of her own personal spite. She was mad at the Libyan
    president for not supporting her during her failed 2008 campaign against
    President Barack Obama.”
    ….and throw in Tony Blair

      NATO wanted the war so all mainstream ideologies are to blame!

      Harper went there!

      It is collective blame to go around to Sarkozy, Cameron, Harper, Obama, Merkel.

      Do not forget that Merkel was once referred to as “Iron Lady” Merkel because she represents the conservative and centre-right CDU.

  • Syria – What a cesspool.

    The “West” should have no dog in the fight.

    Get out of the way and let the Muslims kill Muslims.

    And get out of the way and let the Russians kill Muslims.

    And the brain dead Muslim Obama want’s to pick a fight with the Russians. What a fool.

    The lady is spot on.

    No doubt Le Pen was supporting Chirac when Iraq was being invaded.

    Why trust career politicians?!

    They all support mainstreams in the end and that makes them hypocrites.

    Europe is screwed because everyone bought into the idea of the EU as early as the 1980’s.

    There are also many on the neocon right just like the interventionist right that want a war with Russia.

    Where is the distinction?!

    Even the demonizing by the Conservative party, Republicans and even in the debates proves that it is institutionalized and ingrained in the mainstream lexicon.

    The problem with this kind of talk is that it sounds too much like the usual leftist ‘blame Europeans/white people/western civilization/etc’ for all the world’s problems. The Middle East would be a homicidal cesspool even if Europe and the European Union did not exist.
    Also: why this constant harping on the EU immigration policy? A joint immigration policy would be a good idea no matter what; instead even people like Le Pen and Farage are prepared to dump infinite numbers of migrants on their neighbours, just as long as they don’t come to their own country. Why are they surprised that their neighbours have exactly the same attitude?
