Police deployed tear gas and water cannon in Paris on Saturday, as Yellow Vests protesters hit the streets for the 18th straight week.

The demonstration comes on the final day of the three-month nationwide events organised by French President Emmanuel Macron named the ‘Grand Debate.’

The ‘Yellow Vest’ movement, one of the largest French demonstrations in recent history, has marched every Saturday since November 2018.

It started as a protest against a proposed fuel tax, but has since evolved into a wider anti-government movement.

Wait for the grand debate in Iran, after which the mullahs will be hanged to the 1st street light 😉

These are not ‘Yellow-Vest” protesters : baclavas, gas-masks, helmets, shields, they’re organised, trained and obviously apart from the protest. The obvious chief, the one with the bun, isn’t even barking in French!

I could notice some other barks in what sounds like East/Central Europe language with the ‘black block’ around the “Arc de Triomphe”

These are foreign provocateurs, this is obvious.

I think we could sent the politeness back, since we’re retiring our 400,000 FAMAS and tens of thousands Milan ATGM

What d’you think if we offered these to Iranian Kurds and MeK?
And as we are, send 2 Rafale squadrons?

Remember how these demolished Gaddafi’s air defenses and air forces in one night?

Then we’ll equip ’em with 6 TERs… 4 w. 2x Telson 22 and 1x LAU-10, 2 w. 3x LAU-10.

40x 127mm Zuni-LG and 176x 70mm ILGR guided rockets ;-).
2 squadrons = 1440 Zuni-LG & 6336 ILGR per turnaround.

We managed to push Rafale up to 10-11 missions per 24 hours for a full week… After 3 days, the were barely only doing reece by lack of targets.

Since IRGC was the main provider of false-flags to charge Gaddafi of crimes he didn’t do, won’t you share Libya’s experience?

Wait until Maryam Radjavi becomes prez of Iran : MeK Marxists and PKK will take good care of your mullahs 😉

Once we’ll have wiped out all your aircraft and vehicles… And since we have a veto at UNSC, we don’t need to be as nice as Israelis 😉

Oh, BTW, the average death toll per vehicle blown is 3-4… Time to resume the job Saddam didn’t finished…

Don’t worry, the population is more armed than many believe. 12 millions .300winch-mag or .308 riffles are around. I don’t need assault riffle : 1 shot, 1 kill.
