French Menace To World Peace

Politics / Nuclear Weapons Nov 12, 2013 - 07:32 AM GMT

By: Andrew_McKillop



Unsurprisingly, France's government friendly media, and of course its government-owned media of 5 TV channels and several radio stations including local radios, gave a well-programmed and coordinated whoop of joy for the exploits of Foreign Minister Fabius in Geneva.

According to French media, he more or less single-handedly blocked the negotiations with Iran. Thanks to Fabius, the negotiation of an agreement to end sanctions against Iran will take several weeks longer, giving more time to “Bombs R Us” Benyamin Natanyahu to threaten – or carry out - nuclear attacks against Iran. Using Israeli nuclear weapons entirely produced outside the NPT.

Netanyahu and Fabius are what French call “co-religionists”. They both like nuclear war, that is.

Much more surprisingly, because the Iran nuclear negotiations were basically a US initiative, some American media was quick to whoop-along with the “Froggies”, or at least croak like a toad, French style. The 'Wall Street Journal', November 11, wrote this:

“We never thought we'd say this, but thank heavens for French foreign-policy exceptionalism. At least for the time being, François Hollande's Socialist government has saved the West from a deal that would all but guarantee that Iran becomes a nuclear power”.

November 11 was also the day of remembrance  in Europe for World War I.  French ceremonies were especially intense and pompous, but marred by Champs Elysees demonstrators chanting “Hollande Get Out - Resign”, and by the Britanny Red Berets campaign to push back the Hollande Republic and all its works and taxes. The Red Berets (or red caps) movement, in Britanny, is growing every day, attacking and destroying the symbols of the French Republic. Bretons reject Hollande's 2013-style France.


Yes indeed, it was so-peaceful France, in 1915. The same folks who want a nuclear war against Iran. Simply because the French were leaders in the development – and use – of chemical weapons, so long ago, we have to chide Iran for not choosing chemical weapons and biological weapons development, instead of nuclear weapons development, to earn itself a place in the pantheon of the highest levels of Humanity. With CW and BW, and its highly developed ballistic missile arsenal, Iran can take out the big-mouth small-nation called Israel whenever it wants. Why waste time with atomic weapons which give the Hebrew state, and the Wahabite kingdom, as well as the nation of onion sellers (on a bicycle like Lance Armstrong), the excuse to root for nuclear war?

Somewhat fantastically, the 'Wall Street Journal', 11 November, also claimed that Mr Laurent Fabius and his friends or relatives in Jerusalem had saved “us” from total humiliation. WSJ wrote:the French made clear Saturday that they objected to a nuclear agreement that British Prime Minister Cameron and President Obama were all too eager to sign. These two leaders remind no one........of Tony Blair, Margaret Thatcher, Ronald Reagan or George W. Bush. That left the French to protect (us) against a historic security blunder”. All alone with their Gallic flair, their French arrogance and their onion selling music!


The 11th November first world war ceremonies in France had vintage speechifying from Hollande and his gang to talk around the facts of the Second World War – when at least a half of all French, under Marshal Petain formally and officially collaborated with the Nazis. The Vichy regime is a fact of history. Apart from liking Nazi politics, the French ruling class thought the Nazis would win the war! Stay on the winning side, you know it makes sense, French style.

Britanny's Red Caps marred the display of national hypocrisy. To date, the Bretons have destroyed an estimated 5 million euros-worth of “ecological tax” highway gantries to monitor and tax trucks, and dozens of fine-levying speed radars on highways in Britanny. For them, enough of the Hollande Republic is more than enough. They say “Ras le bol”.

This however was not enough to stop “Little Laurent” Fabius and his quest to give Netanyahu and his Wahabite allies, “objective” or other, another and maybe last chance to Bomb Tehran.

Wall Street Journal described the Iran negotiations as a "first-step agreement" good for six months under which Tehran would be allowed to continue enriching uranium, continue manufacturing centrifuges, and continue building a “plutonium reactor” near the city of Arak, but accept strengthened NPT-enforcing inspections from the IAEA.

Fabius has waxed eloquent on tame French media about the Arak reactor. Not a “plutonium reactor” but a heavy water reactor of the exact same type supplied by Canada to Pakistan, in 1964, and highly useful to Pakistan for its own atom bomb program. Pakistan has already supplied and pre-positioned nuclear weapons in Saudi Arabia, or will supply them instantly when the Wahabite Kingdom demands, as the BBC reported last week. Naturally, Pakistan has never signed the NPT.

Much more basically the American and British goals of the Geneva talks with Iran focused immediate sanctions relief and the unfreezing of as much as $50 billion of Iranian oil revenues—no small deliverance for Iran, whose annual oil revenues were a total of about $95 billion in 2011.

The French goal of Laurent Fabius and Francois Hollande is therefore to keep oil prices high, keeping international attention riveted on Iranian “threats to global security” - we mean threats of Iran being able to retaliate to first-strike nuclear attack by Riyadh or Jerusalem. Also of course, due to sanctions reducing Iranian oil sector investment, Saudi Arabia is maintained as the most important producer in OPEC, able to dictate prices. Oil prices can be maintained high. An excellent excuse for economic non-recovery, and excellent profitmaking opportunities for Goldman Sachs and all the oil bulls.


Iran nuclear talks will resume on November 20, and France will be under enormous pressure to go along with a deal. Laurent Fabius will have to try even harder, to please the Wahabites and Netanyahu. Almost incredibly, the 'Wall St Journal', 11 November, said it hoped Hollande and Fabius “hold firm”, and that the U.S. Congress will strengthen sanctions and pass a resolution insisting that any agreement with Iran must include no uranium enrichment, the dismantling of the Arak “plutonium reactor” and all its centrifuges.

According to the Fabius interviews on France's government-owned media outlets, anything less means that a deal with Iran is “a sucker's deal”, obviously excluding French petrodollar sucking from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the UAE, Kuwait, Oman and other Sunni-minority ruled autocracies of the Gulf region.

Fabius said that Iran is “merely looking to con the West” into easing sanctions so that it can restart its bomb program whenever it likes. In French, Fabius is simply a “con”.

Back at home, Fabius can ask why Britanny's Red Cap brigades does not have any more time for his government's mix and mingle of neolib slogan spouting and gargling war-hungry speeches, peddled by Fabius alongside fellow Parti Socialiste easy rider, Francois Hollande. Inside France, the people's struggle against the two-bit Parti Socialiste regime has now begun. The “great project” of France inciting and enabling a nuclear war in the Middle East is off the real menu, back home.

To be sure, in the recent Syrian bombing project of Mr Barack Obama which bit the dust, the French soon shut their fundamental orifice. This time, the French will again show their legendary courage and back off instantly when the real International Community ends the somber farce of Iran sanctions and Iran bombing rumors, feints and plots.
