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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?
