But if you want to disect your ball-licking of Romney, "sea" is a generic term that can be used to refer to any large body of water.
Iran doesn't need Syria to access a large body of water.
If you want to insist he meant an actual "Sea," he could I guess have been referencing the Arabian Sea (Syria not needed), Red Sea (Syria not needed) or the Caspian Sea (Syria not needed).
If you are saying that he was referring to the Mediterranean Sea as "The Sea," that really wouldn't make sense considering there is no waterway linking Iran to the Med Sea, particularly one that first goes through Syria.
So, what you are saying is that what he was referencing was a land-based path through Iraq or Turkey, then through Syria to reach the Med Sea. Ok, sure.
The guy was trying to show off and he said something stupid. Defending it is even stupider.
