'Obama Tempting Iran to Negotiate by Selling Planes'?

( U.S. President Barack Obama is tempting Iran with a $2.5 billion airplane purchase deal if it is willing to negotiate on its nuclear ambitions, Iran’s FARS news agency reported Saturday. “Obama's messages for delivering these airplanes to Iran were sent after the election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as Iran's president,” a source stated. He said that the deal includes the sale of 20 brand-new Boeing passenger airplanes and plane parts.

He furthermore said that a number of these planes and aircraft parts are presently being sent to Iran via Venezuela.

  • Did you not know how unsafe are the passenger planes what Iran uses? What is so bad about making sure people are safe when they fly?
    Do you know how many fatal accidents Iran just had last Summer ?

  • Those are still going to be some pretty crappy planes in Iran if they are only paying 2.5 billion for them. I say let them buy our rejects.
