France: the “war on terror” media plan continues

| Paris (France)
+

As we had indicated in our article “France: The ’war on terror’ makes its entrance into the presidential campaign””, the Atlantist personalities of the Union for a Popular Movement, France’s major right wing party, are using the “war on terror” for their personal promotion. After denouncing the alleged laxness of Parisian authorities in view of the risks of attacks and stressing his contacts with the United States as an evidence of his commitment in this matter, Paris representative Pierre Lellouche stood out again by addressing this matter in a report broadcast in the news at 8:00 p.m. by French TV channel France 2.

On Sunday, October 9, 2005, the news program with the second largest audience in France broadcasted a report about the trip of Pierre Lellouche, Ted Turner and Sam Nunn to Kazakhstan under the auspice of the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI). It was announced in an official ceremony that the nuclear plant of Ulbinsk in eastern Kazakhstan would be restructured. The military uranium that is still there will be subject to multiple changes in order to be used exclusively in the civilian field. The war ceremony orchestrated by Kazakh president Nursultan Nazarbayev, in the midst of the electoral campaign for his re-election, was scheduled for December 4, 2005. Ted Turner is the president and director general of CNN, and Sam Nunn was a democrat senator. Both of them co-chair the NTI, an organization specialized in the propaganda regarding the non-state nuclear threat. Pierre Lellouche is the administrator of the NTI, which in fact, is an external program of the CSIS (Centre for Strategic Studies).

The report alternated indulgently between the theory of the organization about the imminent terrorist nuclear danger and the Iranian nuclear danger. It is yet another stage in the Atlantist media plan, whose objective is to raise fear among the French public opinion about the terrorist danger.
