I have now been told several times that an Israeli attack on Iran is very likely to inevitable either before or immediately after the American election. Assuming Iran's retaliation includes US targets, this would suck in America and, if before the election, probably get McCain elected. If after, then President Obama would find himself with a $2-300 oil price. This not really being my subject, I have no idea how to assess these matters. But, if true, then the post-oil world will begin in the next few months.
