Anybody care to make a wager?
    #928655 - 10/03/02 03:39 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

In my opinion the invasion of Iraq by the U.S. is going to happen, regardless of what Saddam says or does at this point. Anybody care to bet that Bush will take Saudi Arabia as well? The massive buildup for the invasion of Iraq has continued unabated. These troops cannot remain so heavily forward-deployed for long without being used. Recent convenient deployments to Yemen and Djibouti only further my suspicions that Saudi Arabia will be next... Watch it all unfold while I say "I told you so"...
Pinky? Luvdem?...care to comment?

You're on. What stakes, which neutral third party will hold them, what time frame for collection?

Well since I'm not a rich man, the amount I can bet is small....but I've got Canadian red back ($50) that says the U.S. targets Saudi Arabia when it's done with Iraq. You can choose the person who holds it... I'm not sure what you mean by "time frame for collection" please elaborate.

Name a date when I may collect your redback. If your prediction is still unfulfilled by December 31, 2004, for example?

Actually December 31, 2004 sounds like a good date to me...since I believe it will happen much sooner.  Sound good?

I look forward to spending your money... :grin:

I would happily accept an earlier date, if you feel it appropriate. It's your challenge, you have the right to choose whichever date you feel most comfortable with.

So there are no misunderstandings, shall we agree on the terms now? Is the following wording acceptable to you?

If the military of the United States of America, under the leadership of George W. Bush, initiates an invasion of Saudi Arabia with the intention of overthrowing the Saudi government on or before (insert your date) I, "pinksharkmark", will pay you, "Rono", the sum of CDN $50.00 within 48 hours of the start of the invasion.

If the US military, under the leadership of George W. Bush, has not made an attempt to invade Saudi Arabia with the intention of overthrowing the Saudi government by (insert your date) you, "Rono", will pay me, "pinksharkmark", the sum of CDN $50.00 no later than (insert same date + 48 hours).


Please fill in the date of your choice.

I used Jan 3rd because most places are closed on New Years Day...sound fair?

May I suggest Thor as the 3rd party if you don't already have someone in mind?

Wow... I know a lot of the hijackers were from Saudi Arabia, but I cannot fathom that the US will go after them when Iraq is 'cleaned' up. I think South-East Asia will be the next stop for the US troops.

If we dont go to war before the end of the month it will have to wait till next year.. Its BAD politics to start bringing peoples kids home in body bags durring the holiday season and we all know that this will be a real bloody war..

As for Saudi? I think No, we wont take Suadi, we have some pretty good diplomatic relations with them already and once in controll of Iraq we will need the Saudis to pump gas for us out of the fields..

i highy, highly doubt that the Bush administration could convice the American public to support another war in Saudi Arabia so soon, especially since the war in Iraq will probably cost several hundred American lives

Who knows, maybe they'll find weapons grade uranium at the border of saudi arabia next  :grin:

I think establishing the military presence in Iraq would mean the Saudi's would be cowed without an invasion. The corrupt, vicious american installed ruling elite in Saudi arn't exactly the kind of people to give up the lap of luxury for their people.
