Boeing : "That (political) relationship is quite critical for how Singapore works with the U.S. government," Parasida said at Malaysia's Langkawi air show. "In reality most of these sales are not really Boeing's, but government-to-government sales."

Honestly, the RIAA deal against online music sharing first came to mind while reading that. Is it quite possible that Boeing wants a share of the sales made in between former customers? Boeing sold the product, they are not leasing it, I don't think they have a say on whom they are sold to after that. Almost sound like a royality issue...since I don't know much about the political environment, my initial guess is that this is all very fishy.
The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.
