No one saw this coming right?
Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan categorically rejected as a “lie” a Guardian report alleging that Tehran has granted access to its military facilities under the recent framework agreement with the world powers.
“No such agreement has been made; principally speaking, visit to military centers is among our redlines and no such visit will be accepted,” Gen. Dehqan stressed on Wednesday, rejecting “the report by foreign media outlets, such as the Guardian” as “untruthful allegations”…
In relevant remarks on Monday, Commander of Iran’s Basij (volunteer) Force Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi said the untruthfulness of Washington officials in their remarks about the Lausanne Statement issued jointly by Iran and the six world powers displayed that the US was an untrustworthy partner to any deal.
Sometimes you just want to bang you head against a wall when you think about the idiocy of this Administration. They wanted to trot out to the world that they made a deal with Iran so bad that they would ignore common sense.
But this Administration has never been a great example of common sense.
I wonder what the excuse of Obama and pals will be?
That they never considered that Iran’s military sites will be inspected? If so this will be the worst foreign policy deal ever conceived. How in the world could you ensure Iran doesn’t have any nukes or that they aren’t attempting to build a nuke if you don’t inspect their military sites?
Allah has an idea of what their excuse will be:
My guess is that they’ll claim he’s blowing smoke, blustering about “red lines” at military sites to appease Iran’s hardliners even though he fully intends to allow secret IAEA inspections there. That’ll be how it goes for the next three months, until a final deal is reached (or not) — “don’t listen to what Iran says, watch what they do.” Presumably the same logic applies to John Kerry’s pal Javad Zarif promising Iran’s parliament that they’ll test a highly advanced uranium centrifuge on the day the final deal is reached, which is sort of like celebrating a disarmament treaty by test-firing an ICBM. One of the key planks of the deal for the west is to restrict Iran’s research and development of high-end centrifuges, knowing that the more sophisticated models are capable of producing bomb-grade uranium much, muchmore quickly than the primitive models Iran uses now. Obama’s goal with this deal was to slow Iran down to the point that it’ll take them at least a year to enrich their current uranium supply to make it bomb-caliber; Zarif, meanwhile, is now promising his own side that he’ll roll out technology that would make a mockery of that one-year “breakout” timeline. We’re already at odds over the most basic terms of the agreement even though the deal is less than a week old.
In the end Obama doesn’t care if Iran gets the bomb or not. He’s Neville Chamberlain reincarnate. Avoid war at all costs.
We all know how well that worked out.
