Iran starts production of dual-purpose carbon fiber

Iran has launched its first production line of carbon fiber, a strategic material used in defense systems as well as civilian projects, the IRNA new agency reported on Saturday.
Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi said Iran had joined the 10 countries possessing the technology.
Carbon fiber is used in advanced defense systems including nozzle heat shields, lightweight composite bodies of motors in solid-fuel missiles, wings and body of various types of fighter jets and civilian planes, as well as light weapons, he said.

Turkey will take its 2nd carbon-fibre plant into service in 2012 and aims with it a market-share of 10%.

Dow and Aksa plan carbon fibre joint venture

“By partnering together, Aksa and Dow will create the carbon fibre composites industry’s only large scale, full-service, fully integrated solution provider serving the growing needs of the world’s leading industries,” claims Heinz Haller, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer of Dow.

If it's used in "defense systems as well as civilian projects" why would there be sanctions?
The thread is a proof that you can not contain a country like Iran with sanctions.
They've a sufficient population base (young) and secured income. With the right political decisions they can produce almost anything within a time-frame.

Maybe they decided in year 2000 to gain local carbon-fibre production capabilities, and maybe the plant was intended to come online already in 2005? Who knows.
With right political decisions anything's possible - even with some years of delay.

Apparently the ship is intended to have Big Foot as its Captain, and got ahold of the phones I threw away 30 years ago.
Your telephones you threw away 30 years ago, didn't have the need for secure voice and data transmission like telephones in Intervention boats need.

Clearly, Iran is unable to "produce" democracy, freedom and basic human rights.
Nor, has any other Muslim cesspool, for that matter.

Islam, the religion of fascism.

So you think, that Intervention boats used against organize crime like Drug-trafficking and Human-trafficking doesn't rely on secure voice and data transmission?

You asked an arrogant question whether there are streetlights in Turkey.
I asked you in return whether Americans have high-speed trains.
You get the answers your posts deserve, simple as that.

Turkey's per capita income is half that of Israel. Time to play catch-up with the Jews. Chop chop!

Oh, the same democracy and specially HUMAN RIGHTS which has caused US to enter at leeast 50 wars in recent history, kill millions of innocent people, be the first country to nuke civilian cities, set up prisons like Abu ghurayb and Guantanamo.

Good achievements.

Just imagine for a moment, what would happen if we had 50 of these democracies and human rights on the planet instead of just 1. :eek::eek::eek:
