    Romney won because Obama didn't.
    Meaning - it was O's last chance to turn the worm against recent gains by Romney, it didn't happen.

    Let's take a look at the map.

    The Mediterranean is accessed through the Suez Canal. It's in Egypt, at the north end of the Red Sea.

    It appears that the Caspian Sea borders Iran on the north - straight into Russia. Russia would love to have Iranian oil coming through, wouldn't it?

    If the Strait of Hormuz is blocked Iran can simply go to its southern border and ship out into the Indian Ocean.


    On the subject of the US having our own oil - what is it going to take to make you understand - US OIL GOES ON THE OPEN MARKET WITH EVERYONE ELSE'S. We don't keep but a tiny bit in emergency reserve.

    If the Strait of Hormuz is backfilled with the bodies of a billion infidels it doesn't affect Syria. Syria's only connection to the ocean has ALWAYS been the Mediterranean Sea - which they can sail through to the Suez Canal if they really want to go into the Arabian Gulf instead of the Atlantic.

    Duh.

    Didn't you just love Obama's "we also have fewer horses and bayonets" remark after Romney said we had fewer ships in our military than we did in 1916?

    Defense of Iran?

    Jeesus.....you trulky have no idea of what the world is all about.

    Iran does not care about defending itself. It cares about offense.

    People like you know what you want but you are clueless about the ramificatioins of what you want.

    That in itself is scary.

    It is why you are so easily bought in these elections.

    It didnt bother you that Obama, our CiC is obviously not aware that a CV is not self sustaining or self defending and requires a minimum of 6 escorts...often many more more? You know...2 destroyers (to protect from Subs), 2 AA warships (to protect from Aircraft), a couple of Cruisers to carry the GM's......not to mention smaller scouts and decoy ships.....

    Well...it certainly concerned me a little.

    The same kind of bullshit went around when the Soviets first came up with satellites and nukes and so far we're the only ones who have ever used one. Do you really believe Iran would use a low grade nuke on another country when they know they would be automatically inviting others to use a standard NATO weapon wiping their whole country off the face of the earth? You gotta be shittin' me.
