    Sorry can't all our maple syrup was stolen. I'm not kidding either there was a great maple syrup heist here recently that stole 30 million$ in maple syrup. Don't worry though it was all insured.

    The entire world knows the importance of the Strait of Hormuz and Washington and its allies are very well aware that the Iranians can militarily close it for a significant period of time. This is why the U.S. has been working with the GCC countries – Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, and the U.A.E. – to re-route their oil through pipelines bypassing the Strait of Hormuz and channelling GCC oil directly to the Indian Ocean, Red Sea, or Mediterranean Sea. Washington has also been pushing Iraq to seek alternative routes in talks with Turkey, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia.

    Both Israel and Turkey have also been very interested in this strategic project. Ankara has had discussions with Qatar about setting up an oil terminal that would reach Turkey via Iraq.

    The Turkish government has attempted to get Iraq to link its southern oil fields, like Iraq’s northern oil fields, to the transit routes running through Turkey. This is all tied to Turkey’s visions of being an energy corridor and important lynchpin of transit.....snip~

    Although Turkey would become an Energy Corridor and the Lynchpin of the Plan!

    The aims of re-routing oil away from the Persian Gulf would remove an important element of strategic leverage Iran has against Washington and its allies. It would effectively reduce the importance of the Strait of Hormuz. It could very well be a prerequisite to war preparations and a war led by the United States against Tehran and its allies.....snip~

    I agree, I say go to an Alcohol based fuel.....and I am totally against the sharing of any Military Technologies whatsoever. With Anyone! ANYONE!

    Re: Canada cuts ties with Iran, closes embassy, orders Iranian diplomats home

    I wanted to get a little history, some perspective as to the relations between these countries. The degeneration of any positive coexistance had started to become eroded back in 2003 when a Canadian citizen died in an Iranian prison. "The frosty relations between the two capitals became even more restrained in 2003 when an Iranian-Canadian photographer, Zahra Kazemi, died while in jail in Iran. Iran said she died of a stroke but Canada insisted she died under torture because of a skull fracture. A number of Iranian-Canadians are currently held behind bars in Iran, including Hamid Ghassemi-Shall who is facing execution after being convicted of espionage, a charge his family say is trumped-up."

    Further, "Payam Akhavan, a professor of international law at McGill University in Montreal, said the recent row was the worst crisis in bilateral relations between Tehran and Ottawa for many years. "I think the closure of Iranian embassy in Ottawa should be seen in the context of concerns by the Canadian government about the Islamic republic's recent activities in its Ottawa mission, including using it to establish wider presence in Canada through a series of ostensibly cultural activities, at universities and other institutes and infiltrating the Iranian diaspora and neutralising opposition to the regime," he said."

    I had no idea, Connery... I knew that during the reign of the Shah he often had several thousand "political prisoners"....

    If this is true, Canada should have cut ties much earlier.

    I don't think Sharon began threatening Iran until 2003.

    To take a step back with such a highly charged issue is necessary. Canada has a large Iranian population with a vested interest in good relations, but, that relationship must go both ways and benefit all parties. Indeed, "Canadians who have Iranian nationality are warned in particular that the Iranian regime does not recognise the principle of dual nationality," it said. "By doing so, Iran makes it virtually impossible for government of Canada officials to provide consular assistance to Iranian-Canadians in difficulty."

    Good for Canada! Iran made it pretty clear with the attack on the British embassy on where they stand with the west and respect for diplomacy
    ‘This is not peace, it is an armistice for 20 years.’ (Ferdinand Foch. After the Treaty of Versailles, 1919).
