The article discusses the long-term international political implications of the Yom Kippur War. The author argues that the 1973 war between Egypt and Syria, backed by the Soviet Union, against Israel, allied with the United States, caused a diplomatic furor resulting in an oil embargo against the United States and its allies. This eventually led to the Camp David peace talks between Egypt and Israel under the encouragement of U.S. President Jimmy Carter.
