Believe it or not, a Syria strike could send oil prices tumbling -- yes tumbling.
That may seem counter-intuitive, but that's exactly what Cramer is hearing from Carley Garner, the co-founder of DeCarley Trading and author of A Trader's First Book on Commodities.
She tells Cramer that historical patterns would suggest a strike should generate some watershed selling.
Looking back two years, when the US went into Libya, the price of oil domestically dropped by 10% almost immediately. And after America invaded Iraq a decade ago, oil futures tumbled 15%.
That's largely because oil prices tend to rally in anticipation of an attack, but after it happens it becomes a 'sell the news' event.
Garner says technical patterns in the charts of crude oil suggest that history is about to repeat itself, as the US threatens to strike Syria.
