For? Iran today announced continuing their pursuit of ballistic missles. You think they stopped development of platforms to carry a nuclear weapon without also continuing enrichment for said nuclear weapon? Come on, they basically got to cherry pick where and which facilities inspectors were allowed to go to. If you don’t think Iran is playing the West, well I’ve got some beachfront property in Tehran to sell you.
On topic, of course Boeing sells no airplanes. How may sanctions affect the ability to buy second or third hand? Can they be that far reaching?
source. reputable source please, not paraphrasing or your perceived interpretation of what was reported.
Iran says they will ‘continue’ spending for ballistic missles. You think they are developing ballistic missiles and no nuclear warhead to go with it. They’ve been provocative prior to and post nuclear accord. The Iranian regime doesn’t want peace.
Let's face it, no country wants to develop its nuclear arsenal to attack. It is simply a deterrent weapon.
The moment Iran, and as a matter of fact, ANY country in the world would use a nuke in an offensive war, that country would be immediately wiped out of the map by a rain of nukes. No, Iran will not start shooting nukes to NY or LA. It would be the end of Iran.
What the US clearly doesn't want is a country as powerful as Iran having a say in a region of the world that the US considers its geopolitics playground. Oil, oil, and more oil is the issue. The moment they have nuclear capability, they have a say in regional matters.
It is basically inevitable that Iran develops its nuclear program. Nuclear capabilities development by more and more countries is an expected chain reaction started with the US in the 40's
If US has it, USSR had to have it too.
If USSR has it, France and UK had to get them also.
If US and USSR have it, China needs it too.
If China has it, India needs it, which in turn forces Pakistan to have it too.
If Israel has them, of course, Iran has to have them also. No brainer.
If Iran has it, Saudi Arabia will develop them also.
And so on...
About Boeing and Airbus orders, I don't understand how selling civil aircraft to Iran to fly around safely their common people (who are completely clueless and voiceless of any ballistic missile program), would in any form or shape help them develop nuclear weapons specially considering that all those involved in the development of those weapons for sure fly in military planes, not civilian.
Also, if it's such a concern for any nation that those billions of $$ that Iran got back are invested in weapons, why not make sure they're invested in Boeings and Buses?
