Attack on Iraq Betting Pool
Friday, August 30, 2002 | Momaw Nadon

Posted on 08/30/2002 8:14:01 AM PDT by Momaw Nadon

It seems like an attack on Iraq is coming soon.

Place your bet as to when the attack will begin.

Whoever gets closest to the date and time wins.

Attack time must be specified in Month, Day, Year, Hour, and Minute

For the hour, don't forget to specify what time zone you are referring to.

There is no decision on a prize to be awarded yet except for bragging rights.

By 'local time' do you mean Baghdad Time?

My bet: after getting Baghdad to issue 15 "attack imminent" messages to their commanders, so that the 16th gets ignored and we gain tactical surprise.

December 2nd, 2002, 7:00pm EST.

And that is definitely a wild stab in the dark. LOL! If my brother-in-law was still stationed at Camp Lejeune, I'd be better able to make a guess based on what he says is going on down there, but he's now a Recruiter in another state.

Oh, we're all stabbing wildly at this point.

Saddam talks tough, but I bet he ain't sleeping too well anymore!

I'll stand pat with that. We'll have to consult the judges if there's an air vs. land ruling required.

Still have to go through the phony sanctions/weapons inspector rigamarole so the French don't try to bring us up on war crimes. Plus, too hot still in September, truck tires explode on the sands.

"Attack" needs to be defined, as it may begin with fits and starts.

Perhaps, in addition, a pool on the day, hour, minute when Saddam is declared dead or is in custody of U.S. Forces.

September 10th, 2:30 pm Central. If my calculation is correct, that would put it 12:30 am, September 11th, Baghdad time.

Good point Plutarch.

I define "attack" to mean when the first massive and overwhelming air attack on Iraq begins.

This will probably be announced by President Bush when he addresses the nation to say that the attack on Iraq has begun.
