More proof that the sanctions are utterly stupid. The U.S. wants Iranian airline passengers to die. There is no other explanation for denying parts for jet aircraft.

Iran getting the bomb would be da bomb. Go for it, I say.

Really, giving Tel Aviv a ten thousand year half-life would earn the praises of a thousand generations to come.

Bad idea for Boeing and GE. Yes, as the EU says if an Iranian airline needs a specific part, and it is in stock, send it and charge for it. Otherwise, stay out of Iran.

Foreign lobbies (i.e. AIAPAC) only want to milk American tax payers to send billions to Israel. but when opportunities comes along (like selling over 400 jets) that helps US economy they strongly oppose. go Figure! those who do not put American interest as top priority should leave for places that feel their real home.

Iran cares for no one but itself. Why should anyone care about their needs. They created their own problems with their politics and folly, so let them live with them. GE, Boeing, and everyone else are just being duped like fools.
