My Mideast Punchlines: what a Carry On……

Dropping a bombshell on the Iranian nuclear agreement negotiated by U.S. along with other world powers and Iran, the AP has disclosedthat Iran will be allowed to use its own inspectors in sites suspected of military development of nuclear weapons.

The revelation comes from a document seen by the AP regarding two parts of the agreement that were kept secret. As per the agreement, two key passages were negotiated separately between the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), a UN agency, and Iran, were to remain secret.

The secret parts of the deal concern inspections of the Parchin military installation, which has been under suspicion for years for conducting research on nuclear weapons and long-range ballistic missiles. A second secret deal centers on separate negotiations to resolve the issue of possible military dimensions (PMD) of Iran’s nuclear program.

Neither the Congress, the secretary of state or the U.S. president can view the secret “annexes” of the deal according to the negotiated agreement.

Small FistClose to every Brit’s heart is the series of movies known as the Carry On comedies. Well, if they ever decide to dig up the bodies of dear old Sid James, Kenneth Williams et al, we could revel in a new version called Carry on Inspector. And what a splendid comedy it would be. Gravelly-voiced Sid could play Ayatollah Khomenei, and Kenneth Williams would make a great Ahmeddinnerjacket (‘stop muckin’ about!’). Roly-poly Hattie Jacques would look great in a chador. Indeed, the whole ensemble would have us all in tears as they cavort around Parchin pretending to be blind to their own nefarious deeds. Yet, somehow, I feel they’ll never be able to match Dumb and Dumber. Obama and Kerry are so funny, I could die — literally. “What a Carry On!”
