Emmanuel Macron news: Retired Generals warn President in letter about ‘civil war’ | World | News

The officers then criticised the President for allowing brutal police action against yellow vest protesters in the country.

In a grim comment, the letter then warned the country would “explode” into civil war if ‘nothing was done”.

Finishing the open letter, the signatories alleged they had broad support in the military and, in thinly veiled support of Ms Le Pen, were “ready to support” politicians who focused on the “safety of a nation”.

Ms Le Pen, leader of the far-right National Rally party, seized on the letter published on the Valeurs Actuelles website, and said: “I invite you to join our action to take part in the battle which is opening, which is certainly a political and peaceful battle, but which is above all the battle of France.”
