PARIS (Reuters) - France and Germany will increase their efforts to reduce tensions over Iran, but time was running out and the risk of war could not be ruled out, their foreign ministers said on Wednesday.

“We want to unify our efforts so that there is a de-escalation process that starts,” French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian told reporters after a cabinet meeting in Paris.

“There is still time and we hope all the actors show more calm. There is still time, but only a little time,” he said.

Britain, France and Germany, known as the E3, plan a new push to keep Iran in the 2015 nuclear deal despite Tehran’s threat to violate one of its central limits, but they may be nearing the end of the diplomatic road they embarked on more than 15 years ago, diplomats told Reuters on Tuesday.

1. John Kerry worked so hard on the Iran Deal-along with some European nations, only to have

a stupid man with a big ego blow it up.

3. And his minions are unable to see anything but the blowhard's bluster and

self aggrandizement. I have never nor will I ever understand the appeal of a tRump. Phony boloney is so unpalatable in my opinion.

4. ENOUGH!

We can't pay for a highly beneficial social state, but we have enough money to pay for a war that only benefits corporations and the 1%?!? A war that only poor people will fight, a war that only the general populace will have to sacrifice for. ENOUGH! We are being duped!

5. A Flashy Military Parade in Paris

A flashy military parade in Paris should do the trick for Trump. Macron should invite him to a grande event and keep him busy.

6. Trump cannot go at it alone

so this is good news

If no one joins the coalition, it will be difficult to start a war.
