I thought that turning the Earth upside down would be one way to grasp the view of Israel & the Middle East from Syria & Iran's point of view. Fascinating as it was, I can somewhat see why if Iran managed to control Iraq and create a terrorist state there that Israel would not have a chance.  BTW, Russia & China are NE or all of this (at the bottom & left of the map).

P.S. the top of the picture is South

Thursday i tilted the map up from the point of view of an airplane and flew from Haifa to Beirut.  I import a product from Tiberias which is in Northern Israel on the Golan Heights side of the country.  I would think that they must use the port of Haifa.  War is hell, it disrupts and distroys life as we know it.

Here is another view of Israel from Tehran ... note how tiney it appears ...




Seth says
And not to belabor a well known point ... but here is the choke point that Iran has on middle east oil ... up close and personal ...

Just in case there was any doubt why the Texas oil men are gunning for a fight with Iran.

Perhaps it is ... please take it as a prime example leftrightism.  Yet there is some truth here if you delete the reference to Texans.  To ignoring the role of oil in US Middle East strategy is to ignore the giant elephant sitting in the room with its trunk stuck in the Strait of Hormuz.
