Real leaders these days are hard to find. Fortunately for France, Marine Le Pen is surfacing to be a leader the caliber of Charles de Gaulle.
Le Pen sees through the EU lies, she see through the senseless wars promoted by EU bureaucrats, and she s deeply concerned with preserving the France’s independence and sovereignty.
Speaking at the European Parliament plenary session in Strasbourg on Wednesday, Marine Le Pen accused the EU of being responsible for the chaos in Syria.
Le Pen leveled devastating truth during her speech, noting that the European Union has been 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. Your responsibility could not be concealed.”
“You cannot hide your responsibility […] for plunging this part of the world into an absolutely monstrous chaos.”

Le Pen said, alleging that policies advocated by both the United States and the European Union had contributed to the state Syria is currently in, as well as neighboring Iraq.
She also mentioned that conservative policies advocated by both the United States and the European Union contributed to plunging Iraq into chaos. As a reminder, following the presidential veto override of the Sept 11 bill last week, a group of Iraqis are planning to sue US seeking monetary damages for the US invasion of 2003
The eurosceptic politician then moved from the war in Syria to its logical, and intended according to some, outcome – Europe’s refugee crisis – and slammed the bloc’s approach toward immigration as “irresponsible,” stating that the current migrant policies only increase the number of economic migrants.
“No real measures are taken to curb the crisis. Your irresponsible policy, on the contrary, brings us more and more economic migrants,” Le Pen said, adding that only 30 percent of the migrants that had arrived in the EU were from Syria.
Le Pen, who intends to ride the wave of anti-immigrant anger sweeping French society in next year’s presidential election, has repeatedly spoken out on the migrant crisis and security issues in Europe and France. France has been hit by a number of deadly terror attacks within the past two years, with a state of emergency declared after the November 2015 attacks in Paris and prolonged following an attack this July in Nice.
European Commission head Jean-Claude Juncker said in September that the EU should play a part in Syria peace negotiations and proposed developing a common European strategy for the war-torn Middle East country. However, as RT reports, no developments have so far been made in this regard, despite EU’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini making a number of calls on the US and Russia to renew their “diplomatic consultations” regarding the war-torn state.
