    China-iran missile sales

    China is continuing to provide advanced missiles and other conventional arms to Iran and may be doing so in violation of U.N. sanctions against the Tehran regime, according to a draft report by the congressional U.S.-China Commission.
    “China continues to provide Iran with what could be considered advanced conventional weapons,” the report of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission says.
    According to the report, which will be made public Nov. 16, China sold $312 million worth of arms to Iran, second only to Russia, after Congress passed the Iran Freedom Support Act in 2006 that allows the U.S. government to sanction foreign companies that provide advanced arms to Iran.

    Why so serious?

    Nations routinely trade in arms. The US armed both Iraq and Israel to the teeth. While it was convenient, 'Uncle Saddam' enjoyed popular support.

    Looks like a cold war type move, to maintain a second front in the ME while preparing for the main one off its own coast (think Taiwan).

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
