There will be no war with Iran in the near future of about 10 years. Iran is fairly easy to predict. They saber rattle to drive up oil prices. Mideast conflict is directly proportional to prices. Anyway, if the US wants an end to Iran, then it will destroy every pipeline and truck leaving Iran. Also, it will confiscate every oil tanker. Oil prices will rise $5 to $6 dollars a gallon for a year. Iran govt. will collapse and new govt will form. Oil will return to below $2 dollars a gallon
