The meeting in August between French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his American counterpart George W. Bush at the Bush family residence in Kennebunkport illustrated the opening of a new era in relations between Paris and Washington.

OMEDIA – Bush’s Shelved Plan for a Nuclear Attack on Iran
The leak of a classified document has disclosed a directive from 2002 to draw up plans for a nuclear attack on the rogue states – Iran, Iraq and North Korea – included in President Bush’s “Axis of Evil” speech.

The classified document was leaked after reaching the hands of the director of the Federation of American Scientists’ Nuclear Information Project, Hans Kristensen. The briefing on the US’ strategic command in 2002, describing plans for a nuclear attack, were to become operative in March 2003. The plans were never implemented, but they are apparently being constantly updated.
The White House’s consent to the attack is recorded in signed authorizations for the response plans for various scenarios. On June 20, 2002 President Bush signed National Security Policy Document 14, which Kristensen describes as the first directive by the White House to the Army to prepare a “nuclear response.”

On the heels of similar announcements in the past starting in April of this year, Iran’s President Ahmadinejad has issued another declaration, this time claiming Iran has 3,000 centrifuges for uranium enrichment.
American experts estimated in the past that such a quantity of centrifuges, operating in sequence and in a stable fashion, could enrich uranium to a level high enough to produce the amount of fissionable material to arm a nuclear warhead. In an interview on Iranian television Ahmadinejad declared, “We have arrived at the stage of industrial manufacture of nuclear fuel. The train of Iranian progress cannot be halted. The process is irreversible. “
