Situation in the Middle East

Coûteaux (EDD). (FR) Madam President, the most surprising thing about our debate is our surprise, for Israel's expansionist policy is the inevitable and predictable result of the growing imbalance in the region, the stability for which we bear much of the responsibility. Firstly that is because since 1967 most of our states, with the notable exception of France, have continued to give the State of Israel a state that is growing increasingly self-assured and domineering the impression that it can violate international law and UN resolutions with impunity.

In reality, here as elsewhere we have followed Washington and persist in closing our eyes to the theocratic excesses of this religious state whose governments are under the thumb of fanatical parties and minorities that are just as bad as the other groups of religious fanatics in the region. That is why we should envisage imposing sanctions on Israel.

There is, however, another serious imbalance for which we are in part responsible, namely the imbalance of forces. I have no hesitation in saying that we must consider giving the Arab side a large enough force, including a large enough nuclear force, to persuade Israel that it cannot simply do whatever it wants. That is the policy my country (DF: i.e. France) pursued in the 1970s when it gave Iraq a nuclear force. We have now destroyed it. So we will carry on with our policy of imbalance and what is happening today is merely the annoying but inevitable result of our collective blindness and cowardice.

No matter the "we", I'll set aside the fact that this degenerate EUrocrat is openly deploring that Saddam Hussein's regime was destroyed. He can only cry a river and wet his diapers out of frustration here, thank to the Coalition.

Yet the worse is of course that he is advocating "balancing" the force by handing in nuclear weapons (again) to the remaining tyrants in the Middle East.

France of course.

the "expansionist" policy of Israel? Does that include the unilateral withdrawal from Gaza?

Impose a sanction on Israel and risk imposing a US sanction of your worthless ass country.

Sure, I think Iran and Syria need some nuclear weapons... delivered with precision guidance right on top of their terrorist harboring heads.

..maybe that's a little harsh. But seriously, they cannot be allowed to develop WMDs. If that means a pre-emptive strike by Israel on Iranian weapons labratories, so be it.

As a liberal, I believe that it should be within every countries rights to have weapons of mass destruction. I also believe that as a liberal, they should be allowed to murder thousands of their own people even if it's simply to show their disdain for western civilization.

While we're at it , France could probably use one or two more nukes delivered with precision upon their terrorist loving government's buildings.
