Well I'll admit that when I heard the recent movements I drew that same line and labeled it "Curious connection there".
But Cap and Trade I think will likely be shown as a way to ration fuel and energy in general during a wartime economy. Iran is not a pushover
militarily and won't be easy to invade (there is a reason why Iraq even with US support could only manage to draw a stalemate).
I did some more thinking and remembered I did a paper for a class last semester on how an oil shortage would impact our culture. One of the things I
said would have to be done is a sort of cap and trade system to ration fuel since global oil supply would be drastically reduced. I'll have to find
the figures I made up for it. I think though what I figured was that the Strategic Petroleum Reserve would only last about 80-100 days if there were
no problems and no reduction to demand.
Its odd though how sometimes when you do this kind of research how suddenly it becomes relevant and almost predictive of what may be happening.
