IS SYRIA REALLY IRAN'S ROUTE TO THE SEA?

Mitt said it again. 

During the Republican primaries in February Mitt Romney said that Syria is Iran's "key ally." OK, no problem here. Then he claimed that Syria is also Iran's route to the sea (start at 1:30:15). Huh? Has Mitt ever seen a map of Iran and where it lies in relation to the Syria and the Mediterranean?

Hey, I have an idea. Let's take a look ...




Well, at the beginning of tonight's debate on foreign policy he made the same assertion. If you look closely (well, you don't really have to look that closely) the real story here is that Syria does not even have a border with Iran ...



Sigh ...

As I pointed out in July, there's not much to say here except to remind everyone what happened the last time we elected a guy who didn't know much about the outside world.
