France's Sarkozy: Military Strike On Iran Would Trigger Middle East War

By DPA

French President Nicolas Sarkozy warned against any military intervention against Iran over its nuclear program, saying a strike on Iran would "trigger war and chaos in the Middle East."

At his annual New Year's address to diplomats in Paris, Sarkozy warned "a military intervention would not solve the problem (of Iran's nuclear program) but would trigger war and chaos in the Middle East and maybe the world."

France would "do everything to avoid a military intervention," he said, calling instead for "much stronger sanctions" against Iran.

Sarkozy's remarks come amid fresh tensions between Iran and the West since a report by the United Nations nuclear watchdog late last year, which said Iran had tested designs normally used to make a nuclear weapon.

4. No country is going to attack Iran. It would be suicide.

Even under Clinton who wanted to bomb Iran, the Pentagon said there is no way the US could win short of dropping non-existent nuclear bombs.

5. I think we can file this under "doy comma no"

Not a dig at you as the OP. I just can't believe there are still people pushing for it.

10. Then the world can call for "much stronger sanctions" against France...

 

Which actually does have nuclear weapons.

Here's more imperial arrogance from the West.
