Jacques Cheminade, Leader of the French "Solidarity and Progress" Left-Gaullist Party Salutes the XIXth Congress of the CPC

Today Jacques Cheminade expressed his full support of the engagements&promises delivered by Xi Jinping. He stresses the importance of Sino-French cooperation over the new Euroasiatic silk road project he says to have supported since 1996. He also touched on mutual cooperation in Africa, reaffirming his belief that China and France both stand by the Gaullist ideal of peaceful cooperation and dialogue between nations. He ends his message by re-affirming his rock-solid belief in the continuation of Chinese growth and potential in opposition to defaitist western media.

I honestly wish he'd publish a book detailing the general theory of left-gaullism it sounds pretty fascinating

upset me as well. Whenever I find good articles with shitty titles, I try to find alternatives but just about every publication had them branded as US-Backed/US-Led. ypg, ypj, sdf, etc all deserve recognition for this battle. The US just occasionally flew by and bombed some civilians.

Also you guys should see the titles of the things that don't make the cut, like today alone…

This is a great day. Sadly its shadowed by Iraq attacking Kurds.

Not your fault user.

That's hilarious

sounds like a gay as hell ideology

How the hell is this sneaky goblin still in power?

What are you an anti-semite or something?

good praxis?

Would it be worth it for some Holla Forumsers to make some kind of noise about the MURRICAwashing of the liberation of Raqqa?

Man, the two of these being combined into something ok is giving me some complicated feelings.

All it does is exacerbate the problem. The fund should be used to fund activism instead.

Someone should write it up and submit it to the Editor user

Another Trump promise flops.

No. The SDF goes uncredited for a reason, which is that once Kurdistan becomes independent the CIA will oversee regime change and install a dictator who the US can manipulate. They would not publish shit about them, especially readers taking a publication to task over not crediting those guys properly.

go masturbate someplace else

Is there any chance this could lead to a unilateral elimination of NAFTA? Will we see bootlicker apologism in its favor by libs too indoctrinated to remember the giant protests by Democrats against NAFTA when Clinton instituted it?

I doubt it, NAFTA's still way too good for Porky, they wouldn't let Trump do it. Hell, Trump himself may be profiting from it directly.

So, we should let them go uncredited for the things they've done?

This. NAFTA isn't going away, at the least Trump will throw his base a bone with some reforms for it but for the most part it's here to stay.
