French President Francois Hollande says France will “intensify its military operations in Syria,” and that the nation is in a war against “cowards.” He said those who carried out the Paris attacks need to know they have reinforced its desire to “destroy them.”

In a Monday address to both houses of parliament, Hollande said France will step up strikes in Syria, calling it “the biggest factory of terrorists the world has known.”

“Our democracy has triumphed before over adversaries that were much more formidable than these cowards,” Hollande said.

The French president demanded a rapid implementation of “co-ordinated and systematic controls” of the EU’s internal and external borders, stressing that it will patrol its national borders if Europe does not comply. This would mean dismantling the European Union.

He stated that he was extending the current state of emergency by an additional three months, adding that the French constitution must be amended for crisis situations, allowing dual citizens to be stripped of their French citizenship and barred from the country if they are a terrorism risk.
