French government has been so lax those last years. Any civil war could happen even in France, like in Lebanon because non cultural "French of paper" only are taking over, with in addition millions of illegal immigrants (yes millions).

Kanaks are violent, clanic and uncivilized by definition

"Republican order will be re-established whatever the cost," Le Franc, the central government's high commissioner, warned radicals behind the violence.

He (The High Commissioner) is “appointed by decree of the president of France deliberated in the Council of Ministers. He publishes the laws of the country with the countersignature of the president of the government of New Caledonia.

Paris is definitely launching a colonial crackdown to violently suppress an indigenous rebellion against the overlords. The chief colonialist there announced the intention to "reconquer". A nasty piece of work indeed.
