why the deal with Iran

Postby paperburn1 » Thu Jul 16, 2015 11:41 pm

And now we know...
Iran's president has pointed to another possible windfall from the nuclear deal with world powers - his country may soon be able to buy badly needed new planes for its aging fleet, the official IRNA news agency reported.

Iran's Transportation Minister Abbas Akhoundi has said there have been talks with Boeing and Airbus and that initial agreements will likely come in a few months' time.

"We will provide new aircraft for Iran," Akhoundi said.

Last month at the Paris Air Show, Akhoundi said Iran was prepared to spend about $20 billion to purchase about 400 new planes over the next decade.

Iran President Hassan Rouhani said Iranian negotiators came away from the talks in Vienna with "achievements beyond the nuclear" agreement and succeeded in having "aviation sanctions removed." His remarks were carried by the official IRNA news agency late Wednesday.

The landmark deal, struck Tuesday between Iran and six world powers after marathon negotiations in the Austrian capital, is meant to prevent Tehran from acquiring nuclear weapons capability, in exchange for sanctions relief. According to the deal, key economic sanctions - such as those on Iranian energy and financial sectors - would be lifted once Iran implements the restrictions on its nuclear program.

Get a pilot with the right messed up mentality and a jumbo jet can deliver payloads we very much would rather not be delivered. Though once sanctions are lifted Iran would have cheaper ways than buying to obtain them for a one-off operation.

On Sept 11, 2001 the aircraft themselves were the weapons. With the broad loopholes of this nuke deal Iran may have another payload.

The point I was trying to make that was Boeing funds both sides of congress but in this election I believe you will find the majority of its fund will be swayed toward the Democratic party for this boon it has received.

My presumption is the mullahs routinely purge the upper ranks of their military of officers who show "weak faith".

Earlier today I read a terrifying suggestion, that Barrycade struck the deal to provoke a world war in order to stimulate the economy, similar to how the US recovered from the Great Depression during WWII. Terrifying because I see no evidence he isn't that stupid when it comes to economics.

Anyone who thinks a religious leader is actually religious doesn't know geopolitics. They use religion to control the mass's and maintain their own power, they don't actually drink the koolaid. This is also why they always someone else to do their dirty work, you'll never see one of them go and blow themselves up.

Remember, all political leaders are actors first and foremost.

A report I saw once said Iran already had nuclear weapons purchased from Pakistan, they didn't have the guidance systems to deliver on target yet. Plus they wanted to acquire the ability to roll their own.
