I am betting $30,000 that Bush will attack Iran between March 2007
and Sept. 2008.  Most Americans will support this action, and it
may boost Republican chances of winning the 2008 election.  If
Iran retaliates, chances are very strong the country will vote for a
Republican even if they blame Bush.   If Iran doesn't retaliate, 
Bush will be a hero. History will look favorably on Bush if he attacks
Iran.  Attacking Iran is much easier gamble than Bush's gamble to
attack Afgahnistan or Iraq.   Bush has no downside risk attacking
Iran.  With Iraq, there was fear Saddam could have nuked one of
our cities.  We didn't know what Saddam had.  He might have had
a dirty bomb, or he might have had bacterial agents.  Russia lost
their war with Afgahnistan. 
 
Getting a regime change in Iran will eliminate two out of three of
our arch enemies.  We are really at war with Iran all ready because
they support terrorist groups who attack us now.  It will be
considered an act of genius, once we succeed.
 
N. Korea will have no country to sell its nuclear technology, even
if it wanted to do so. Even N. Korea is not stupid enough to sell
nuclear technology directly to terrorists.   If we attack Iran, there
is really little they can do.  If I am correct, I will make $300,000.
If I am wrong, all I will lose is $30,000.   If I had bigger balls
I'd bet $200,000, because I am sure this will happen.  I
predicted the fall of the Berlin Wall before anyone else.
I predicted something very similar to 9/11.  I predicted
the first war in Iraq.  I bet $30,000 that we would attack
Iraq in 1992.  I think that was the year.  I bought $30,000
in oil futures, but I didn't make anything due to a minor 
miscalculation.  I didn't lose either.  This time I have a
much better strategy.

If I could get odds on that, I'd have done so already. Can I get a second bet that the UK will go in and do the best to extraperlate the US armyt from a murky creek?

So if Bush attacks before March, you lose the bet? If so, that takes some of the luster out of the bet.

Do you really think so? I wouldn't make that bet!

Oh puleese... maybe the masses didn't know, but Bush sure did.

So... oil for euros has absolutely nothing to do with it, 'eh?

You mean that it may be considered an act of genius by some... if Bush "succeeds."

Yeah... nothing except further incite a more unified Arab coalition. And spawn a new wave of fanatical terrorists.

Well, I'll admit that 10 to 1 is a good bet... one that I would probably take myself. Though I don't agree with most of your other reasoning.

And would that make you happy?

I hope he does. If Ahmidinejab develops a nuclear bomb he WILL use it. He has made that very clear. The difference between N Korea and Iran, Kim Jong Il while a brutal dictator still has some sanity left(not to mention big boy china holding his leash) Ahmidinejab is completely insane. He will use the nuclear bomb, he needs to be elimintated. The Ayatollah(curse his name) needs to be eliminated. 

Will Iran be an easy war? no. However it is unavoidable, if we dont attack him, he'll attack us. Frankly I'd rather we fight before he feels ready to.
