We have to transition can jog on the sexiest man alive -- somehow Iran.
And -- next year's kind of the year of Iran the year we it's somebody must deal with an international community the problems in Iran.
Joining us now is -- across senior geopolitical strategist at Barclays for a Lehman wisest gonna get forced the -- in the windy think it'll happen.

-- he drew the marker on the bomb that when he spoke at the -- general assembly.
That's his bread lines this is coming to ahead.
Let's talk about it -- moment what we do about that in the United States but what you look at all the time is the the oil.
Market that is geopolitical events and threats.
Affect that so what -- the market look like if that's the scenario that's kind of slowly unfolding early next year I think.
I think we saw over the summer when negotiations resumed with the -- anticipate a scenario in January February but the markets has we -- -- off ramp but if an offer doesn't materialize or rent for a nasty shock.
Come you know may June when Netanyahu is saying once again I'm ready to -- what about Netanyahu in the elections though coming up in January 40 going to be reelected.
And -- the question is if he gets a huge majority is that embolden his position because he's run on the issue of protecting Israel from -- and because threat.

Are they going to be -- -- -- power and you look at the recent military gains by the rebels in Syria the group the most successful as the kind of extremist group the group that the al-Qaeda offshoot.
That's a real problem in terms of who's going to be in charge of this country with chemical weapons.
