You are forgetting, Iran's coast is on the Indian Ocean. What the Neo-Cons are talking about in regards to Syria is access to the Mediterranean Sea, and with it access to Europe and N. Africa, as well as a short-cut to the Atlantic.

>sailing through the Persian Gulf to the US would entail sailing around Africa
>additional 11,000 or so miles to travel compared to sailing from Syria
>5,500 gpm * 11,000 miles = 60,500,000 gallons of gas

Does he know that Britons are useless when it comes to logistics?

Wrong, the world is a GLOBE. It's not flat. They don't need to go via Africa at all, they can go across the Indian Ocean, and across the Pacific.

Sailing across the Pacific Ocean would consume less fuel than from one of our bases in Turkey? Did you completely miss my point?

Your point is the same irrelevant point raised by the author, which ignores the logistics of sending even one ship to the Persian gulf.

Do you think war strategy and geopolitics are planned solely with a globe?

But nevertheless, all too true of many USA politicians and the failure of the education systems in the USA. Ridiculously high rate of illiteracy among high school students, etc... all quite well known.

You're missing a key point here.
Your arrow is pointing to the Persian GULF
Syria is next to the Mediterranean SEA

Romney is too stupid to know you can sail from the Persian Gulf and reach the rest of the world...

Saying that Americans have poor geography skills isn't really helping your cause. I mean, don't communists want to unite the world? Insulting a country's population doesn't really get them on your side.

I'm not upset about the artwork itself. I think Romney's an idiot. But you can't say that "Americans are useless at geography." It's stereotypical.

zeraful Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2012  Hobbyist
Well, the US is the birthplace of the term "stereotypical", so you can't really blame other for that. And for my opinion, in this economy, it doesn't a big deal to forget some of the stuff you learned at school when you're having 2 or 3 jobs or trying to feed you family.

Beside that, I think you're missing the point. The author's joke here isn't aimed at the American people in general, it aimed in Romney. It is obvious that when he said something like that, most people would thought about the Persian Gulf and said "oh great this guy is an idiot", and based on what Romney said lately about matter regarding the Russian and the Chinese, it's obvious that the man's digging his own grave.

The artist's comment is rude and judgmental. It's wrong and discriminatory to apply one trait to a large group of people; saying "Americans are useless at geography" is insulting.

It's true though, just like saying the germans can't cook or the chinese are hard workers. Stereotypes that don't die are usually backed up by reality.

Not really entirely sure what you mean by that, the grammar is incorrect but it's comprehensible. Are you taking a dig at my political standpoint because I've insulted your nation's geographic ability?

To be fair, I don't think anyone has ever made commusnism work on a large scale the way it's supposed to. Probably because the idea's unworkable

Because it goes against human nature. Otherwise, it would have worked someplace at a large scale by now.
