Iran invasion pool.
    #3879766 - 03/06/05 10:42 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

So, It seems obvious that the U.S.A. will Invade Iran sometime in the reign of George W. Bush. So I figure somebody may as well make some $$$ off this, other than haliburton.

So It's $10 to enter, guess the date of the invasion, closest person wins it all. I'll add this to my favorite threads and bump it when the invasion occurs. Money is to be collected by the winner through PM's, so it's basically the honor system.

Invasion must occur during the bush/Cheney administration. Invasion will be considered to be the beginning of major hostile action. So If we start covert operations in coordination with bombings, that will be considered an invasion. Otherwise, It'll be the day when all the newspapers carry the headline of "war" or invasion". Should it be a slowly escalating military action with no clear "invasion date" the winner will be the closest date of the 50th American combat casualty(hopefully this won't occur).

If you enter and don't pay up, expect bad trade ratings from everyone that entered, that should keep it honest.

My date will be January 18th 2006.

edit: spell check.


--------------------
And I said, I don't care if they lay me off either, because I told, I told Bill that if they move my desk one more time, then, then I'm, I'm quitting, I'm going to quit. And, and I told Don too, because they've moved my desk ...four times already this year and I used to be over by the window and I could see the squirrels, and they were merry, but then, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn't bind up as much and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and its not okay because if they take my stapler then I'll set the building on fire.

If the end dosen't occur, all bets are off. I think this would be the best possible scenario, as nobody dies in this circumstance. But I give it about a 5% chance that there is no invasion.

Yeah, I fully agree with you on that one. Just wanted to toss the "what if" into the equation.

If weinvade Iran, we're fucked......and there's going to be a huge social revolution in the US. There is definately one coming, and our Admin. is really stupid/macho, so I don't doubt that we'll invade another country soon...Syria seems to be a more likely target though.  :shrug: Anyway, I'm not putting any money on it.

It's seeming alot like the 60's again.

Bush is as stupid as Johnson or Nixon.
People are talking about the draft again.
War in foreign country, no good reason(no better one at least)
Lsd Is starting to emerge again.

On that last point, I think It deserves some more looking into. There has been no LSD in this country for about 4 years, so It's a brand new thing again. It could have a huge impact, and may be what swings the youth culture from the "support the troops" mentality to the "save the troops, bring them home" mentality. Or maybe I'm just pissed cause Florida is still bone dry.

We've invaded 2 countries so far, both wars being just as illigitamate (albeit, Afghanistan war had higher grounds for war). What makes you think invading another country (and setting up a happy puppet government) is going to change the "American Mindset"?

you can be that stupid- to suggest that Iran will be invaded by the US during the next 4 years... outlandish, if not absurd. just think about the shear logistics of it. another occupation, which would make 3. we wouldn't do it. the american people will not buy another invasion.

Bush is deficient. but he's not completely retarded. he knows its not feasible. besides, people behind him- his advisors know we are already slightly over-extended millitarily. its not gonna happen while bush remains in office.

Iran, the N. Korea, then what? the list of foes goes on. it won't happen, it'll be dealt with through diplomacy.

what is the definition of invasion? What if it's just a few special forces or troops with limited objectives or an arial bombardment?
