Iran Nuclear Watch: France Preparing for Iran War?

French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner walks to a car after news conference in Cairo September 13, 2007. Kouchner said on Sunday his country had to prepare for the possibility of war against Iran over its nuclear program, but he did not believe any such action was imminent.

World should brace for possible war over Iran: France

The world should brace for a possible war over the Iranian nuclear crisis but seeking a solution through talks should take priority, French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner said on Sunday.
“We have to prepare for the worst, and the worst is war,” he said in an interview broadcast on French television and radio.

“We must negotiate right to the end,” with Iran, he said, but underlined that if Tehran possessed an atomic weapon, it would represent “a real danger for the whole world.”

“We are trying to put in place plans which are the privilege of chiefs of staff and that is not for tomorrow,” he said, referring to military plans but stressed that although any attack on Iran was far from taking place, “It is normal for us to plan” for any eventuality.

Kouchner said France wanted the European Union to prepare sanctions against Iran, outside the ambit of the UN Security Council, to force Tehran to forsake its nuclear ambitions.
“We have decided that while negotiations are continuing … to prepare eventual sanctions outside the ambit of UN sanctions. Our good friends, the Germans, suggested that,” he said.

The next step for the United States and the EU will be sanctions outside the United Nations.

But, Iran is on a short leash .

If these sanctions do not deter the Iranians from their nuclear program (which they won’t) next will be a financial blockade of Iran followed quickly by a physical interdiction of ships carrying gasoline to Iran.

Iran will respond militarily and the war will begin.

Interesting with the election of Nicholas Sarkozy that France is NOW giving the United States cover like a good ally would.

    “Interesting with the election of Nicholas Sarkozy that France is NOW giving the United States cover like a good ally would.”

    I believe they act in the framework of the UN, as they did when US invaded Iraq on fabricated facts. They said “be aware of the difficulties”. They where right.

    And as the United States and EU have been screwing aroynd in the United Nations for years, Iran has been increasing its uranium enrichment capability.

    The United Nations will do nothing more to sanction Iran for its nuclear program.

    First, more harsh sanctions by the West or would you prefer we go to war straight away?
