No inspections of Iran military sites: Revolutionary Guard leader

It’s getting harder and harder for anyone to keep a straight face when contemplating the so-called framework for a deal that was announced by President Obama and his Secretary of State.  There’s almost nothing left constraining the Iranians, if recent statements of the Supreme Leader and a Revolutionary Guard leader mean anything. AP reports:

A senior commander in Iran's Revolutionary Guard said Sunday that inspectors would be barred from military sites under any nuclear agreement with world powers.

Gen. Hossein Salami, the Guard's deputy leader, said on state TV that allowing the foreign inspection of military sites is tantamount to "selling out."

"We will respond with hot lead (bullets) to those who speak of it," Salami said. "Iran will not become a paradise for spies. We will not roll out the red carpet for the enemy."

I’d say we have reached the stage where we can talk about the deal as “collapsed.”
