November 2007, my son was born in the universal war with oil that surrounds my destiny. One month earlier in October 2007, tensions in Turkey caused oil to rise to $92 per barrel. By the new year starting with January 2008, oil surpassed $100 per barrel. Oil prices peaked to $145 under President Bush by July 2008. Experts I corresponded with in Asia, Turkey, Israel and Manhattan were getting different reports from those released to Wall Street. I had just left New York City where I had been working at a law office off Maiden Lane in Lower Manhattan. Each Friday, I visited the New York Stock Exchange.
