French President Cautions Against Attack on Iran
"For me, Iran having a nuclear weapon is unacceptable," Sarkozy said in his first major address on foreign policy, but he stressed that he opposed an attack on the Islamic regime and urged that the West rely on diplomacy."
It is encouraging that George Bush's right wing friends see the insanity of a military attack on Iran. Whether the Americans themselves or the Israeli's conduct a preemptive military strike on Iran, the potential for a massive escalation of war in the Middle East becomes inevitable.
Nicolas Sarkozy's statement today should cause the White House to pause and examine the viability of any military attack on Iran, no matter how limited the plan may be.
