Wasn’t it Kruschev that said that Americans will sell us the rope to hang them?

The Tyrant supports Iran more than America.

The useless, hated, EXEMPT Congress remains
in its brothels and banks and ambien-laced offices
abdicating to treason.

And this is why I say sanctions are pointless.

This is just one case that makes the news but thousands of waivers are given.

This makes the Saudi’s recent signals of dissatisfaction a little more understandable.

Great sanctions by the Obama Administration. Maybe one of the planes can be used to attack Israel. Or the U.S.

From wiki.

Trade between Iran and the United States reached $623 million in 2008. According to the United States Census Bureau, American exports to Iran reached $93 million in 2007 and $537 million in 2008. American imports from Iran decreased from $148 million in 2007 to $86 million in 2008. This data does not include trade conducted through third countries to circumvent the trade embargo. It has been reported that the United States Treasury Department has granted nearly 10,000 special licenses to American companies over the past decade to conduct business with Iran.

Try removing the passengers before you deliver the spare parts.
