Iranian Revolutionary Guard: 'No foreigners allowed in our military sites'
Waiting for President Hussein Obama to cave
in 5... 4... 3... 2... 1....
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."
A fact sheet on the framework accord issued by the State Department
said Iran would be required to grant the U.N. nuclear agency access to
any "suspicious sites." Iran has questioned that and other language in
the fact sheet, notably that sanctions would only be lifted after the
International Atomic Energy Agency has verified Tehran's compliance.
Iran's leaders have said the sanctions should be lifted on the first day
of the implementation of the accord.
The fact sheet said Iran has
agreed to implement the Additional Protocol to the Non-Proliferation
Treaty, which would grant the IAEA expanded access to both declared and
undeclared nuclear facilities.
But Salami said allowing foreign
inspectors to visit a military base would amount to "occupation," and
expose "military and defense secrets."
"It means humiliating a
nation," Salami said on state TV. "They will not even be permitted to
inspect the most normal military site in their dreams."
So there won't be inspections. We can trust Iran, right? What difference does it make?
