Urban combat in France

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — In 2017, a French author accustomed to the BFMTV sets said: “We are no longer in the world of Clausewitz”, according to which “war is an act of violence whose objective is to compel the adversary to execute our will.”

The war of today and that of our near future is urban war in these cities which are economic, political, technological, informational, ethnico-religious.

Pierre Santoni, who commissioned CENZUB between 2012 and 2014, an Urban Action Training Center with the mission of training French Army units in urban combat, “painted a portrait” of this field of action. battle where the fighting is bitter, where the wills collide to the end, forcing us to rethink tactics and strategy to make the action effective while minimizing the maximum civilian casualties that are not stakeholders.

Indeed, the words of Mr. Santoni have nothing innovative: the war in urban areas is again strategic, we saw with the hard fighting in Syrian cities as was the case in Aleppo and Damascus between 2011 and 2019.

And even closer, in 2012, Israeli army officials studied the methods of Gruppenführer Jürgen Stroop, who had crushed the Warsaw ghetto in four weeks in 1943, for their deadly operation in Gaza called Pillar of Defense (even when Israel is the aggressor).

In France, some want it, for reasons of ordering the country. This would be proof of the Israelization of French security policy, initiated under Sarkozy

The launch of such an operation – to recover the lost territories of the Republic, to use one of the favorite expressions of the Zionist Utra Alain Finkielkraut – would also consecrate the victory of the social engineers at the origin of the triangulated conflict which seeks to oppose the French between them, between communities, whether of color or confession, for the benefit of the tip of the triangle, namely the deep power.
