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.

Me either, but in the context he used it makes perfect sense. He called them their only ally and then in the next sentence "Route to sea" which means last hope.

He also uses "Route" in the next sentence and isn't referencing a literal path either.

Wrong, Dong. A gulf is usually a sea. A sea is a body of saltwater, usually connected with an ocean, and the terms 'ocean' and 'sea' are often used interchangeably. I'm sure Mitt went throught this analysis before he spoke.

Sorry, but you're wrong. A gulf is a large bay connected to a sea or ocean.

Do you refer to the Gulf of Mexico as the Sea of Mexico? Didn't think (hope) so.

No because that is not its name. You see, there are formal names and there are generic descriptions. The body of water south of Louisiana is formally called the Gulf of Mexico. As a large body of saltwater, it also fits the definition of a sea.

I hope you are sitting, because this will blow your mind--The Gulf of Mexico is not only also sea, it is also ocean, because it is part of the Atlantic Ocean.
The Caribbean Sea is ALSO ocean, as part of the Atlantic Ocean. Really makes you think.

Sure, that's how I know what these things are. This conversation is stupid. I'm 100% correct and you are flat-out wrong. There's really no grey area.

I presume that you are being intentionally silly at this point.
