Congressmen ask Obama to explain why he did not respond to Iran’s purchase of Russian C-300

56
The US administration is not in a hurry to respond to the request of congressmen, in which they are asked to explain why the president did not use the law and did not impose sanctions on Iran’s purchase of the C-300 air defense system, reports Look with reference to Free Beacon.




"President Obama has the authority, in accordance with US law, to recognize as illegal the recent Russian sale of Iran to the C-300 system, which, according to lawmakers, will contribute to the growth of Iran’s military potential," explains the resource.

The article notes that while "the Obama administration refuses to use its powers under this law."

As Congressman Steve Shabo noted, “The White House continues to jeopardize Western countries' efforts to block sales. weapons". He expressed dissatisfaction with the administration’s interim response from June 8, which states that no decision has been made yet to impose sanctions.

“Honestly, I am disappointed with the administration’s response to my letter, asking me to acknowledge that the transfer of the C-300 missile system to Russia is developing their efforts to acquire advanced weapons systems. Such behavior is discouraging, especially since the administration claims that it is trying to convince Russia not to proceed with the transfer of arms, ”said Shabo.

The White House was assured that they are still "concerned about selling C-300, but are not yet ready to make a decision." The reasons for such indecision are not specified.

Meanwhile, the State Department stated that they are still studying the “possible effect of the sale of Russian anti-aircraft missile systems” to Iran.

“I do not know whether the final decision was made. We have previously expressed our concern about this possible sale and we are still finding out what the consequences could be, ”explained the agency’s representative, John Kirby.

“We are checking what this will mean for us in terms of the sanctions regime,” he added.

      Because the overseas understand that Russia may well sell the S-300 and even the S-400 not only to Iran, but to anyone. And where these complexes will be, the US planes do not fly or bomb in the name of "democracy"

          For Americans, such a ban has several purposes.

          - Another article accusing Russia of violations of all_ democratic_ values

          - the lifting of bans on the sale of weapons to where there are still bans

          The US Congress (however, like any other parliament in the world) is a gathering of lobbyists, overt and covert, legitimate and simply bribe-takers living by solving the problems of their sponsors

          The fact is that if the Russian Federation begins to sell S-300 systems, and God forbid CLUB-K to all countries that are not democratic enough from the point of view of mattresses, then it’s impossible to just fit an aircraft carrier and bombard an unpleasant state from the heart.
          Congress’s concern is understandable. Another question is where they can curtail this concern and prohibitions and put them in ...

              On the contrary, imagine that the countries of the second or third world massively purchase and put on duty the S-300, Bastion, Club-K, S-400, etc. complexes ... then the question arises - how in this case, with the "spread" of democracy will be used by the AUG for which the United States pays every day quite a lot of money (I really do not consider the cost of the aircraft carrier itself).
              And apparently, the story of the closure of Syria by our S-400s showed the governments of weak states how to complicate the life of the world hegemon so that he would not so eagerly spread the light of democracy around the world.

      President Obama has the power, in accordance with US law, to invalidate the recent sale by Russia to Iran of the S-300 system, while the Obama administration refuses to use its authority under this law.

      Of course, at first I was most intrigued by the method of exercising (or updating according to the current fashion) powers. But looking at the root, I came to the conclusion that our deputies still need to study and learn from the congressmen as they need to be foolish with global reach, this is not a fight against smoking or the invention of new taxes for Russian citizens.

    they think of themselves as gods half-fools. The laws of the United States are for the United States, the sale of weapons by Russia can be initiated either by appealing to a treaty (at least two-sided) or the UN, all the rest are in the woods.

      There is a sense there. The USA may press for violation of the conditions for lifting sanctions and return thereof. Iran is forbidden to build the offensive potential of 5 years with the possibility of extending this period.

      However, the C-300 is a SAM, and therefore defensive weapons.

      But who did it stop? I mean, call red - white and back under sanctions.

      On the other hand, the EU is unlikely to support, but as recent events have shown, the EU will do what the United States orders.

    But what if the striped president declares the deal between Russia and Iran invalid, will it cancel it? Will they impose sanctions? So Russia and Iran are used to sanctions. But the staff arrogance even ceases to amaze. Just fucked up with conceit. How painful it will be for them to fall — they are not eternal. Yes, and they have already begun to fall, just do not understand yet.
