The national hero of France, Joan of Arc (1412 - 1431), is unforgotten. Joan said she had divine visions that instructed her to recover her homeland from Anglo-Saxon domination.
Marine Le Pen, France's leader of Front National, who is currently running as candidate for the presidential elections in April and May 2012, does not say where her visions come from, but they seem to tell her as well that France must be saved from Anglo-Saxon domination in the shape and form of NATO and the USA dominating and steering French politics to the detriment of her homeland.
Joan of Arc gained prominence when she overcame the dismissive attitude of French commanders and gained several swift victories over the Anglo-Saxon invaders from that misty island across the channel which had dared to occupy French territory repeatedly in the Hundred Years' War and which some French people still call "treacherous Albion" today.
Similarly, Marine Le Pen is storming against the dismissive attitude of the French ruling party UMP and the current president Nicolas Sarkozy towards the USA. He is making his daily kowtow in the direction where the sun sets, across the Atlantic, to that far away continent which is trying to impose its dominance not only on France but world-wide and which some French people name "l'empire du mal," the empire of evil.
Marine Le Pen is invoking Joan of Arc's memory by her firm opposition against the Anglo-Saxons' idea of a unipolar world. The USA does not only squat Europe, which is treated like a sort of US overseas colony or satrapy, but has gone global, demanding that all NATO countries, including France, must take part in a new Hundred Years' War against Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, and Iran as next victim.
Marine Le Pen firmly opposes these belligerent aspirations of the USA, saying that under her presidency France will not participate in any of those wars.
Regarding the war against Libya, she regretted the haste of French diplomacy under France's president Sarkozy who prematurely recognized some rag tag mercenaries and foreign secret service men posing as "transitional council" speaking in the name of all Libyans.
She denounced US supremacy in the military intervention against Libya and refused "the idea that France slavishly followed the USA to this new stalemate".
All UMP and socialist delegates in France's National Assembly voted for the continuation of the war against Libya. Marine Le Pen trusts neither UMP nor PS, the Socialist Party, calling them UMPS, a mish-mash formed by the left and the right, dutifully serving the masters from overseas.
Front National, by the way, has no seat in the French National Assembly, although the party has many supporters, a fact which has caused Marine Le Pen to say that France is not a democracy but an oligarchy, where a few elites from the left and the right share the power and the spoils. The people of France are not truly represented in the French government.
In an interview for the leftist magazine, Marianne, which appeared in January 2011 with the headline "Afghanistan: Marine Le Pen wants to leave the US American orbit," she said, "With our systematic alignment to US interests we have lost the specific diplomatic line of France which could bring more peace to the world. We know very well that US economic interests are hidden behind the Afghanistan conflict, it was the same case in Iraq. Front National was against the war in Iraq and is against the war in Afghanistan.
Marine Le Pen promises that under her presidency France will regain its independence from the USA and immediately withdraw its troops from Afghanistan.
In the 15th century, France was under Anglo-Saxon control, and so it is again today, with the Anglo-Saxons always returning to the scene of their crimes. Just as Joan of Arc became a political symbol for patriotism in the 15th century, so is Marine Le Pen today.
