Why London, Why Now?

An excellent review which confirms much of what I have written earlier but adds substantially more analtyical data can be found at Why London, Why Now? written by Patrick Doherty.

One such reasoning proposed is:

To show just how dire our global energy situation is, Saudi Arabia announced today that OPEC will not be able to meet Western demand for oil by 2015, only 10 years out. Given the timing, this is Saudi Arabia effectively saying that the time has come to turn toward more efficient use of oil, which is also one of the main ways of dealing with climate change. Saudi Arabia just undercut the Bush administration's position in Gleneagles. That should have been a major blow to the United States, but it will now be swept away by the bombings.

I am still betting that this is a Rove / Negroponte organised event.
