It would be illegal for Intel to send the hardware to someone it knows is
going to send it somewhere that it would be illegal for Intel to send it
directly.  Otherwise the controls would be even more pointless.

We don't even know that the subject hardware would be subject to export
controls.  There's really no reason for us to concern ourselves about it.

BTW the US is not the only country with such laws.
