    If IAEA monitors cannot inspect facilities where they believe enrichment may be occurring, then it makes no sense whatsoever to conclude a nuclear-deal with Iran.

    They don't ask for access to any facility on a whim. Documents/data will sometimes lead them to a facility. So can chain-of-custody records and the tracking of nuclear-related components from industry. IAEA inspectors also have a wide range of high-tech tools at their disposal. Things like multi-channel-analyzers which can detect "nuclear fingerprints" in soil and swab samples.
    
    You really don't know much about this field do you?

    Hmmm. Why isn't there the same pressure to inspect the Israeli enrichment facility at Dimona I wonder ? Theres a glaring double standard here thats at the root of US problems in the region

    Because Israel and Pakistan and India are not parties to the NPT.

    Iran signed the NPT in 1968. North Korea is the only nation that signed the NPT and then withdrew (2003).

    Dont get me wrong. I'm not advocating Iran should have such weapons, but while this regional strategic imbalance remains she will keep trying to get them

    If Iran obtains nuclear weapons, then every Sunni nation in the ME will strive to obtain them also. This perhaps our last opportunity to prevent a thoroughly nuclearized Middle East.

    Take away their excuse for trying to aquire them in the first place. If the US is that desperately worried about Israeli security (why ?) then guarantee it with its own nuclear umbrella. It worked for Germany for 40 years

    Aside from tweaking the USA, what's in this for the Russkies?
    Missile sales.

    Do you think the US would dismember its nuclear triad if Cuba complained?

    Whilst Israel has nukes her neighbours will want to acquire them. Only the US has the influence on Israel to remedy this imbalance. This issue is not going to go away otherwise
