From London daily The Morning Star:
Silence the war drums
(Tuesday 18 September 2007)
THANK heavens that the entire political Establishment is not as potty as French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner, who insanely suggested on Sunday that the world should prepare for war if Iran obtains nuclear weapons.
While the French have been desperately backtracking ever since, Mr Kouchner’s statement was, nevertheless, clearly designed to pile the pressure onto Iran and was evidently made to please the right-wing French government‘s new best friend the US.
Chief UN nuclear inspector Mohamed El Baradei, thankfully, brought a note of common sense to the proceedings yesterday when, in a none-too-subtle way, he indirectly reprimanded the French and other governments who appear only too ready to repeat the disastrous mistakes of the Iraq experience and drag the region into yet another war.
Mr El Baradei is, of course, a United Nations functionary, rather than an elected right-wing politician trying to curry favour with the world’s biggest rogue state and its ballot-rigging leader, so perhaps we should not be surprised that he spoke more sense than Mr Kouchner.
