The Canadians in Europe - Chapter France - March 12, 2003 - Press Club: "The Iraqi question: what consequences for the security in Canada, in France and in the world? by M. Charles-Philippe David (UQAM) and Dominique David (IFRI) Contribution of Karin Leonhardt: You reminded it, it is well France that was the main actor in the self-timing of the war against Iraq, and probably he/it still remain a hope so that this war won't take place"...

However, the second, and main actor in this maneuver of self-timing was the world public opinion, the public opinion in all countries of the world, that means "the civil society", and among others in Great Britain, where Tony Blair is currently in difficulty, because in opposition with his/her/its "civil society". The United States have just announced in fact that they would go alone to Iraq, if Great Britain have to more follow them...

In addition of France, it is therefore to the "civil society" that comes back the merit because the war against Iraq didn't yet begin - and, let's hope for it, won't take place. We attend thus, for the past few years already, to the emergence of a new power, "the fourth power", the one of the "civil society" that Montesquieu could not have imagined there is more than two centuries...

This "civil society" appeared for the first time to the "summit of the women" in Mexico City in 1975, then to the "Summit of the Land" of Rio in 1992, where the "civil society" and the NGO imposed the "sustainable development" next to "the environment" on the agenda of the United Nations...

In fact, and according to Bernard Myet, former Secretary General ever attaches French of the Nations United, in charge of the disarmament, without the action and the pressures of the "civil society", the international penal Court, the Convention on the anti-staff mines or "the sustainable development" would not have seen the day...

"Of a summit him other", the movement and the contributions founded of the "civil society" reinforced themselves, and since about ten years a "Forum of the civil society" must be held already, at the same time as every summit or general assembly of the United Nations, and where whether in the world.

If it was well, and if it must be now the "civil society" to "bring back to the reason" and to "show the path" to the two other powers, "the ministerial", and the "legislative", to remind them that "the law of the strongest is not not always the best", would not it be time to give to this "civil society" a more official role and to transform this "Forum of the civil society" in a "Second Room of the United Nations", a "Second Room of the Peoples" that the world Federalists call their wishes since decades, him present general Assembly an emanation of the official representatives of the governments, parliaments or political parties being?

With regard to the attitude and the maneuvers of the United States that you brought up, he/it is a fact that, of a "bipolar" world, we happened to from it to a "unipolar world", of the "multilatéralisme" to the unilateralism" and to the "monolithilisme", the most complete, in a real "world dictatorship"...

President Chirac has just reminded it, that for a "new world order", we must go circa a "multipolar world!

And is what the moment he/it of the most favorable is not to organize this "best world" and this "new world order" precisely?

After this terrifying last world war, one spoke to us a "world government" that didn't appear us desirable, but in any case to be an utopia. Since, and on present hour, this "world government" in gestation has not been gone beyond not only, or even shaped, but one tries to impose to humankind a "unipolar" world...

And those whose behavior is the most reprehensible and most contrary to this "new world order", these are the United States themselves, that are constituted himself a "colonial empire" as some never existed in humankind's history, and by wars and conflicts through the centuries and the different continents of the world are created themselves a "monopoly of the political, military and economic power, or even cultural", on humankind all whole.

It is by the "civil society" of Geneva, where, to the seat of the United Nations, there is also a "Forum of the civil society", that I received these days two couriels, one containing the information of a Brazilian history professor and us learning that in addition we already know what, that is that the Saudi Arabia wishes the departure of the Americans, and that the American "falcons" are shareholders of the industries of oil and arming, that

since some time already, Saddam Hussein and the other countries of the OPEC/OPEP consider transforming their "petrodollars" in "petroeuros"!... and while "breaking Saddam Hussein", as you said it all at the hour, Mr., they intend to put a term to these temptations and attempts...

The second received couriel of Geneva recalls that those same who wish to give "lessons of good conduct" to the whole world respect the less the provisions and texts of the United Nations, while operating militarily, and without being there missionnés by the United Nations, in a lot of countries of the world, whereas the Charter doesn't plan by no means a "right of interference", but on the contrary, the "pacific regulation of the conflicts", and, between other, that these are still the United States that possess the more grand stock of ABC weapons, and other, and therefore of massive destruction" weapons...

The situation was never before, as critical, and the international political stage never before crystallized to the point to allow every citizen in the world to attend the progress and the evolution of a world crisis, and to the irruption of a conflict or a "war" possible, always possible, but who can be avoided still.

A strong majority of the peoples and populations was against this war, and at present, it is not "President Bush", but "President Chirac" who is the héro of the day and who has "the civil society" from all over the world behind it, and therefore wind in stern"...

But ever non more, the situation was not more favorable than now, to organize this "new world order". It is thus world", of a "coexistence" and a cooperation enter the peoples, to succeed to this "world government" in an UNITED WORLD, and especially a world in peace and in security.
