Paris was in lockdown early on Saturday with 'thousands' of French security forces braced to meet renewed rioting by "yellow vest" protesters in the capital and other cities in a fourth weekend of confrontation.....

After three centuries of focus on external enemies, today’s relative peace has given us an opportunity to scrutinize our neighbors. It turns out we don’t like each other very much.

Macron will have to raise taxes to pay for all the police deployment.

These are the same people that voted for the guy Macron.

What did they expect? He is doing what he said he’d do.

France still has a fair number of citizens with firearms, It is not the UK or Germany. Though not Switzerland or the Czech Republic either.

They brought this on themselves.

The lot of them. Childless European leaders who claim allegiance to their pocketbooks and private islands.

That includes Roberts running off to that cave in Malta after 0bamacare.
