He was talking about the Mediteranian Sea, not the Arabian Sea. **** , I don't even like Romney, but this content is just retarded.

It's implied to those who actually watch/listen to the news instead of those just hearing all of this information for the first time during debates.

The more words they use, the more seconds they take up, and that's one thing they don't have a lot of in debates.

While Syria is a geographically beneficial to Iran as it provides access to Lebanon and Palestine, it in no way is an economic partner through the sea. Why would the Iranians ship their oil overland through dangerous Iraq when there is a perfectly good Strait of Hormuz to go through? Romney was... a quarter right? Either way, it was stupid of him to say.
TL;DR Romney still made an oopsie

Because Iran sends all of their oil for export in trucks all the way out to Syria, right?
Oh wait, they don't. They use the Persian/Arab Gulf to send oil (their only export anyone gives a **** about) out through the Straight of Hormuz.

Acess to The Mediterran sea is better than acess to The Caspian, Red and Arabian seas.

Okay, now i have to reword this. I was never good at geography. Romney used the term sea lightly. The mediterranean is the only port viable enough to reach the oceans that connects the world. This post is fraudulent and creates proclivity.
#127 - LtMcG (10/24/2012) [-]
He was talking about the Mediterranean. I don't even like the guy, but this is just pure cancer. Misinformed voters, misinterpreted information, and they continue to publicize this as the criticism of the candidates.

Hey, Nice to know you forgot the Mediterranean Sea, which gets more commerce and trade than the secluded Caspian and Culturally locked Arabian.

The thing that worries me is not that op is an absolute moron, but that there are 1800+ people agreeing with the op.

It's too bad they don't only have access to the Arabian sea, cause that's just a drop in the bucket.

Caspian Sea is a salt-water lake, largest lake in the world in fact. Trust me, I am from Kazakhstan.

OP is an idiot. He was talking about trade routes. The bodies of water that touch Iran are not trade routes. Jesus Christ, my only prayer is that people like OP are either too young or too dumb to register to vote.
#320 to #310 - John Cena (10/24/2012) [-]
What about the straight of Hormuz, which 35% of the worlds petroleum supply passes through? I'd say that's a vital trade route.
When Romney said "the sea" I just assumed he meant the Mediterranean sea because Syria has a Mediterranean coast and Iran doesn't. Also having that as a trade route would give Iran access to Europe.
User avatar #325 to #320 - vivapinatapro (10/24/2012) [-]
Iran uses the strait as a diplomatic weapon, not for actual trade with other countries. Iran always threatens to close it off with their navy and mines whenever someone disagrees with what they want.
User avatar #326 to #325 - vivapinatapro (10/24/2012) [-]
Mostly** as a diplomatic weapon vs actual trade.
#327 to #320 - John Cena (10/24/2012) [-]
So iran would have to pay all that money just to get their products to Europe, just so they can pay more money to have to send it from Europe to America?

stop giving him **** , face it, more than half of you didnt even know where Syria was
User avatar #122 to #84 - latinotornado (10/24/2012) [-]
actually, you can eat a dick, because What Romney said was a path to the Mediterainian
Sea (yes I spelled that wrong) not the Arabian sea you **** head. Before you pull your head out of your ass at least make sure you're not sticking it into another pile of **** .
User avatar #315 to #122 - IamEllis (10/24/2012) [-]

that had absolutely nothing to do with what I said so why dont you get YOUR head out of YOUR ass along with any dicks that may be stuck up there as well and shut the **** up you piece of **** ?

Syria is the only country that would allow Iran access to the Mediterranean Sea. They could easily smuggle across northern Iraq, or just have Syria do their work by proxy without actually traveling.
#33 - AnonymousDonor (10/24/2012) [-]
yes but when i wanted to go to the mediterranean sea, iran to syria
#9 - deathoftheparty (10/23/2012) [-]
Just when I think funny junk can't get any dumber you go and pull this **** . Syria is Iran's path to the Sea retards. The Caspian is a lake and it would take much longer to go through the Persian Gulf. It's like you people try to be this retarded.

Yes, Iran would love to ship all their oil overland through Iraq. Wait.. no they don't, they go through the Strait of Hormuz, which is why Hormuz is so important to us and we station navy ships there.

the caspian sea is land locked and iran has one main port at bandar e abbas...if they want to send something to india, maylasia, austrailia, etc then there isn't a problem...if the iranians want to send something to the west (italy perhaps?) then it would be a good idea to go to syria and ship from there instead of sailing around the tip of africa...

what romney said isn't that much of a **** up, but it could have been phrased better...

Saudia Arabia should make a canal and they could charge money for it like the Panama.
It would help everyone.
User avatar #176 to #123 - yameteoniichan (10/24/2012) [-]
the suez canal is between egypt and saudi arabia...

i neglected to mention it in my post...the thought did cross my mind though...

probably should have...

though i'm not sure if massive cargo ships can get through the suez canal...i don't know much about it...
#59 to #31 - lostwoodskid (10/24/2012) [-]
There is a canal between Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
User avatar #74 to #59 - workitout (10/24/2012) [-]
That's still a longer route than Iran to Syria.
#81 to #74 - lostwoodskid (10/24/2012) [-]
It's a lot more expensive to ship it over land.
User avatar #86 to #81 - workitout (10/24/2012) [-]
Iran to the coast of Syria is about 2,200 km. To travel your route, it's about 7,000 km. Which one do you think Iran would choose? 7,000 km, or 2,200 km?
#95 to #86 - lostwoodskid (10/24/2012) [-]
Distance doesn't matter you dumb ******* faggot.
They are going to choose the cheaper route which is by sea.

I trade to explain it to you like a normal human and you were just too stupid to understand.
To ship the oil 2,000 kilometers over land would cost more than 7,000 kilometers by sea.
Do you understand this?
#323 to #99 - John Cena (10/24/2012) [-]
the sea route is only a few kilometers longer, because there is a channel to the Mediterranean
