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.

It's just a dumb quote. Don't bother defending it. Every politician has some once in a while. 57 states etc. ad infinitum.

I guess I don't see the problem here. Does Iran not go through Syria to get to the Mediterranean?

Sure, although he didn't say Mediterranean.

Just like Florida goes through Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California to get to the ocean. Otherwise Florida is basically land-locked.

How should I know? I do know that Iran doesn't need any country to access "the sea."

Maybe he refers to Cyprus as "the C". Iran needs Syria to get to the C.

Or it's possible that he means an influence in the Mediterranean. The Persians have been wanting that for about 2,000 years.
