Boeing Counterattacks

The fur will soon be flying over in Belgium once American defenders of Boeing arrive with their arsenal of arguments against the French government's recent move to help Airbus. (See my recent post).

Get the American viewpoint here at The Seattle Times in July of 2004. I guess this is a repeat.

The French vision admits that Airbus has profited from several billion of aide, whether directly or indirectly; but they accuse Boeing of having received $30 billion since 1992 when the US and Europe signed an agreement about such things.

Boeing claims that this is not true, that the billions Boeing has received from the US government were payments for military aircraft. You'd have to admit that is hardly a gift, assuming they paid market price.
