Oh the irony of it all. Who will remain President of their country in the foreseeable future?
Hint: It won’t be France’s Hollande.
French President François Hollande said on Thursday he would not seek re-election next year, bowing to historically low approval ratings after a troubled term in power.
“I have decided that I will not be a candidate,” a defeated and embarrassed Hollande said in a televised statement from the Élysée Palace in Paris.
Hollande was one of the major forces in the western power’s push for Assad’s removal, reinforcing the mantra “Assad must go.”
With a 4% approval rating, Hollande was a complete and utter disaster at home.
Internationally, Hollande supported neo-nazi’s in Ukraine and EU sanctions against Russia. He flooded his nation with poorly vetted refugees, and propped up ISIS in Syria…in a bid to overthrow Syrian President Assad.
Assad, and the recognized government in Syria, is all but assured to to destroy ISIS/Al Qaeda in Aleppo, sealing a decisive victory, in a step towards ending the US-Wahhabi regime chain operation unleashed on the people of Syria approximately six years ago.
Who must go Monsieur François?
