Franco-German alternative with assistance of Russia, China and several European countries
A German Government spokesman has told that Germany and France are preparing a new initiative to prevent war.
He was not allowed to give more details, but the comments followed an article in 'Der Spiegel' news magazine which reported a new bilateral plan.
It said the plan envisaged:
* Deploying thousands of UN regulars to Iraq
to support beefed-up weapons searches
* Declaring the whole of Iraq a no-fly zone
* Monitoring of the no-fly zone by french Mirage IV
supervisory-aircrafts, german scouting-drones
Luna X-2000 and United States U2
* Tightening sanctions on exports to Iraq
As a result of this plan without killing any peolpe the Iraq would be de facto a protectorate of the United Nations Organization with the factual control of Iraq by blue helmets for several years to ensure the disarming of Iraq by an robust UN disarmament regime. An central continuous coordination surveillance in Iraq maybe by order of Hans Blix would supervise the inspections.
In the meantime Bush and Blair are working on an alibi-resolution to get free hands by Security Council to invade the Iraq.
Definite details will be publicized at french and german governmental-harangue on Thursday 2.13.03
