    I was really really shocked at that comment. Saying Iran needs Syria for a route to the sea was way more frightening than a candidate simply not knowing which countries border each other.

    The Strait of Hormuz is a potential global flashpoint. There have been rising tensions around it several times in the last year, with Iran's threats to block it if sanctions were ratcheted up. The U.S. is in the midst of Naval exercises near it now. How can you possibly even pretend to formulate a policy on Iran if you don't know that it's on the Strait of Hormuz?
