How is this not disqualifying? Why won't our press even mention this? This is not the first time he has made this mistake.
As the Guardian points out, this is the 5th time at least that he has made this error.
In March, Romney made the exact gaffe at AIPAC conference.
"Maybe one of the few bright spots in the Middle East developments in the last year has been the rising of the people in Syria against Assad. Obviously, as you know, Syria is Iran's only Arab ally in the region. Syria is the route that allows Iran to supply Hezbollah with weapons in Lebanon. Syria is Iran's route to the sea," he said, according to the Washington Post, which fact-checked his remarks back then.
The US presidential candidate has also previously repeated the reference including in a CNN presidential primary debate in Arizona in February. "Syria is their key ally. It's their only ally in the Arab world. It is also their route to the sea," he said at the time.
Here is the listing of Iranian Ports. Please visit this link and zoom in. This is a major, major gaffe that Romney has made repeatedly. This is a disqualifier for someone who has been running for President for the last 5 years!!
This is a scary lack of knowledge from a potential Commander in Chief, especially considering he is rattling the sabre to go after a country he doesn't understand the most basic facts about. If FDR knew this little about Europe in 1944, if JFK was this naive about the Russians in 1962 . . . one shudders at the thought.
