French President Emmanuel Macron on Wednesday claimed that the tone of comments adopted by the United States, Israel and Saudi Arabia towards Iran was virtually a path to war, Reuters reports.
The official line pursued by the United States, Israel and Saudi Arabia, who are our allies in many ways, is almost one that would lead us to war, Macron was quoted as having told reporters.
The line being taken was a deliberate strategy for some, he said, while adding that France wanted to maintain some balance.
Otherwise, we end up surreptitiously rebuilding an axis of evil, he said, referring to a comment by former U.S. President George W. Bush, who once used that term to describe countries including Iran, Iraq and North Korea.
Macron also said he would only visit Iran if there was a return to calm and respect for freedoms.

I guess this means Nikki is wasting her time looking for help from the U N
Wonder how much business France is doing with Iran.
After all, they did collaborate with Saddam.
Frances ruling elite have sold out the entire nation to the islamonazi invasion. Nothing he says matters anymore - he just wants to drag the rest of us down the same sewer
Well, this guy hasn’t been all that bright over his life span.
Why should we expect more now.
For all practical purposes, if America, Saudi Arabia and Israel agree on an issue, France’s opinion on the matter is irrelevant.
Go back to bed with Grandma, Macron. We’ll let the French grab the Left flank like we did in a Gulf War I. Turns out to be more than symbolic. Meanwhile, figure out if you’re losing excise taxes on bottles of Chateau Lafite:
Dear Prez Marcon,
Your gutless approach has lead to decades of failure.
We’re not particularly concerned with your inability to recognize the need for credible force to make negotiations effective.
There won’t be a war against Iran. Its economy and government are not sustainable. Despite its huge oil reserves, the majority of the population remains impoverished and the mullah regime will collapse. Of course the mullahs will squander even more resources buying weapon systems for its military and paying the thugs and goons in the revolutionary Guard. No need to invade or engage in war. Nor does Iran have the strength to go on a serious offensive.
A wolf and a sheep argue about what's for dinner, and a coyote in a beret shows up to arbitrate. How Euro-frick-o-pean of them.
Does he mean France will go to war to protect the Mullahs of Iran? War with whom? Once France knew what it was like to live under the jackboot—maybe they have forgotten.
Because the Germans like to march in the shade.
Who listens to a macaroon?
But “death to Israel” and “death to the United States”, these should be taken as invitations to brunch.
Well, that sucks. You frogs stink at that sort of thing.
The same people who are afraid to sketch Mohammad or crack down on muslim terror because muslims said they would be offended and would kill them.
Whaddya wanna bet they don’t, snail-eater?
The cheese-eating surrender monkeys are at it again. In Iraq, the Oil-for-Food scandal revealed French oil companies were skirting sanctions to support Saddam’s regime. What are they hiding in Iran?
Well we know France will be neutral or neutered in what ever conflict there will be with Iran.
