‘No sovereign state allows inspection of their military facilities by another state - especially a hostile one like the USA - period. This is just one more example of how what the US called “diplomacy” is actually just a series of threats and ultimatums…’
Yes indeed! Mohamed ElBaradei (Amano’s predecessor as head of IAEA) used to say that there are legitimate non-military reasons for Iran’s unwillingness to allow unlimited inspections. Industrial nations accumulate trade secrets that give them competitive edges. There’s liitle doubt in my mind that the US has zero intentions of finalizing an agreement with Iran. The obsequious mainstream media (MSM) will dutifully report the the US gave it their best shot, but that diplomacy wouldn’t work with Iran.
And contrary to the MSM’s “reporting”, aka passing along Pentagon scripts, the most important effect of any agreement would NOT be preventing Iran from having a nuclear weapon. If Iran want’s an atomic bomb she can buy one from India or Pakistan. Rather, the most important effect would be the immediate termination of the draconian sanctions that the US seems to be so fond of imposing.
If by some stretch of the imagination, John Kerry does indeed sign an agreement, rest assured that he’ll claim that his fingers were crossed when he signed it.
