Syria: Iran's Path To The Sea
 
Can somebody explain this to me, please?

Quote:

MR. ROMNEY: Well, let's step back and talk about what's happening in Syria and how important it is. First of all, 30,000 people being killed by their government is a humanitarian disaster.

Secondly, Syria's an opportunity for us because Syria plays an important role in the Middle East, particularly right now. Syria is Iran's only ally in the Arab world. It's their route to the sea. It's the route for them to arm Hezbollah in Lebanon, which threatens, of course, our ally Israel. And so seeing Syria remove Assad is a very high priority for us. Number two, seeing a -- a replacement government being responsible people is critical for us. And finally, we don't want to have military involvement there. We don't want to get drawn into a military conflict.

Well that's a fumble.

I'm thinking that big body of water on the west side of Syria called "The Mediterranean Sea" would constitute a sea. Call me crazy.

Well, well...at least he doesn't think the US has 57 states.

Yes! One must be a right-wing nut to know there are not 57 states.

Sure, just like Florida's route to the sea is California.

Just like gas prices are high because the economy is kicking ass

You perhaps noticed that Iran already has a path to the sea, if not EVERY sea, and that Iraq is between Iran and Syria, so unless Iran turns into Persia of old, it's out of luck in terms of getting to the Med.

The quote doesn't say they're connected.
