(CNSNews.com) As Iran ratcheted up its rhetoric Thursday about closing the Strait of Hormuz, Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul revisited his earlier criticisms of Western policy towards Tehran, adding that Iran would be justified in cutting off the strategic waterway in response to sanctions.
At a campaign event in Iowa Thursday, Paul called Western sanctions imposed against Iran over its nuclear activities horrendous and acts of war,

Words fail me.
Ron Paul is an idiot and why anyone in Iowa or anywhere else would consider him a viable candidate is beyond me.
Can you believe this guy delivers babies??
The Straights are international waters. Closing them amounts to piracy on the high seas.
More than enough reason to bomb them back to the Bronze Age.
OMG!!!!! Iowa, WTF up!!!
He goes to show that just being able to pass a test doesn’t mean you learned anything.
Most of the voters for RuPaul just want to smoke taxpayer-funded dope.
The rest are Democrats bussed in from other places.
Sort of make talk about stopping Irans progress seem meaningless.
Someone posted a pro-Paul vanity just this morning.
Lol....Ron Paul just keeps on going.
Ole Ron needs to go to Iran to campaign.
So Iran would be justified here..
Japan was justified in bombing Pearl Harbor......
islam was justified in 9/11.......
Does Ron Paul ever take the side of the USA and it’s alias?
And in response to a clear act of war on the high seas, we’d clearly be justified in reopening the Strait. And taking the war to our enemy, should we choose. Or any other nation choose, for that matter.
Not that I support that quack Paul, but the muzzies and terrorists already are nuclear power, Irans just trying to catch up to Pakistan and their master the Taliban.
Ron-Paul Ahmanutjob should withdraw and run for President of Iran.
Yeah, just keep talking, Paul. Your mouth is sinking your own ship, so blather on.
Please Paul-bots, tell us all how this mans’ foreign policy is NOT insane.

My question then is this: Is Ron Paul more like Jane Fonda or Lord Haw Haw?
