Do you think France needs to prepare its army for a high-intensity conflict?
Yes. In 2019, before becoming chief of staff of the armed forces, Thierry Burkhard warned of this need. However, for 20 years, France remained in a pattern of asymmetric conflicts, where the danger mainly came from improvised explosive devices. Also accustomed to counter-insurgency, the Russian army quickly adapted its model in two years of war. In addition, it would be a way to regain our military sovereignty.
