It’s not like a country that’s building a fortified border is going to renew an arms embargo with a country it nearly declared war with. Also I just want to casually mention I was dropped on my head multiple times as a child.”
- every single OP on every single one of these damn threads.
If you're going to go with a sarcastic rant, maybe make sure your rant doesn't miss the mark so widely lol. This thread is not about United States sanctions on Iran, it is about the United Nations arms embargo on Iran, which currently precludes anyone worldwide from trading in arms with Iran. The U.S. can (has, and will) place all the sanctions in the world, but the United Nations embargo will almost certainly not be renewed given the abysmal state of U.S. relations with Russia and China. So once it expires, anyone willing to get on the U.S.'s bad side can sell weapons to Iran without running afoul of United Nations enforcement regimes. These sellers will still encounter obstacles from the U.S. sanctions, which are not going away anytime soon.

So Iran might buy some MiG's or Sukhois. Or Rafales.
It's probably because the world's international framework was built upon the victory of Liberty and Democracy after World War 2, the US leading the charge in that regard. Some people have been quick to forget that.
