    IF Iran had no sea ports ...
    and IF Iran had a border with Syria ...
    their alliance with war-torn Syria would give them exactly what benefit? Do these idiots understand how much oil there is in one super tanker?

    A large tanker transports two million barrels of oil.

    A tanker truck carries 9000 gallons, which translates into 285 barrels.

    So one tanker represents 7000 trucks.

    Do you suppose that a convoy of 7000 trucks rolling across the Syrian / Iranian border, if such a thing existed, might be detectable by those interested in detecting smuggling?

    Do you suppose that Syria suddenly becoming a major oil exporter might be noticed?

    This is deep-seated, profound, deliberate stupidity. This is the intellectual equivalent of hitting one's head repeatedly with a four pound sledge in order to cause brain damage, just so you can vote for Romney.

    Romney economics: Feed our seed corn to the fattest pigs and trust them to poop out jobs.
