Rubio Wants Trump to Cancel Boeing Sales to Iran

Only in Obamaworld would we sell aircraft to a regime that might use them against us and that is killing our service members. As I understood it, Obamaworld is supposed to be over.

President Trump should cancel airplane sales to Iranian airlines that facilitate terrorism, a pair of Republican lawmakers urged Monday, the Washington Examiner reported.

“Iran’s commercial airlines have American blood on their hands,” Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Rep. Peter Roskam, R-Ill., wrote in a letter to Trump.

A government decision to block the aircraft sales would provoke an uproar at home and abroad. It would cost Boeing, which has inked a pair of deals to sell 110 to Iran-based airlines, about $20 billion. It could deter American and European businesses from investing in Iran, which the regime’s leaders have argued amounts to violation of the nuclear agreement that former President Barack Obama’s team negotiated.

  1. For the first time in a long time I agree with Rubio, who is my Senator.

    Surely those planes can be sold elsewhere. And there is nothing contractual with Iran that cannot be undone.

  2. I am reminded when, in the 1930’s, we sold steel and other materials to Japan and Germany–materials which would be eventually be made into tanks, airplanes and war making weapons. Will we never learn?
