there's no doubt that in the offices of the neoconservative Project for the New American Century, Kouchner's elevation will be celebrated. But for those who believe the best hope for peace and human rights is respect for international law, the news from Paris is bleak indeed.
Today, Bernard Kouchner, like the good warmonger he is, sought to heighten the tension on Iran, saying we must 'prepare for the worst'.As I've said many times before, we will NEVER have peace, so long as warmongers like Kouchner are anywhere near the corridors of power. What a perversion of democracy that Kouchner, alone in members of the French Socialist Party in supporting the illegal Iraq war, should be rewarded by becoming the country's Foreign Minister.
The choice open to us is a clear one. Work together to remove the warmongers from all positions of power or authority- or prepare for Armageddon.
There really is no 'third' way.
