Jets Possible Enticement For Iran To Give Up Nukes

Boeings For Peace?

You might call this next item "Boeings for Peace"... or, perhaps, "Dreamliners for Detente."

After months of posturing over its reluctance to suspend uranium enrichment efforts, Iran is now hinting it would be willing to talk about a deal with the US, Russia and China... a deal aimed at easing tensions in the Middle East. But Iran wants something in return.

Diplomats are now going over Iran's counteroffer to a Western nuclear incentives package ahead of next week's showdown before the UN Security Council. While Iran hasn't said it's willing to suspend its nuclear program... many analysts say the Islamic Republic has cracked open a door to further discussions.

That's where those Boeings come in. One possible incentive for Iran to cool its jets would be... cool jets, a lifting of the current ban on sales of Boeing passenger aircraft to Iran.

That would allow Iran to thoroughly modernize its dilapidated civil aviation fleet. But will that be enough to entice Iran to give up the bomb?
