    My Pick ...

    Date: March 6, 2008

    Reason: A month after the major presidential primaries and the beginning of the new moon - which is good for bombing campaigns.

    A better question might be, "When will Israel wipe Ahmadinejad off the map?"

    :D

    Unbeknownst to most of you, earlier today (in conjunction with the start of Ramadan) Ahmadinejad drew a map of the region on a white board, slate, or an overhead projector. Soon hereafter (say within a week) he will then take a cloth, eraser, or wet paper towel and "wipe off" Israel from the map.

    I'm going with the 19th on this one.

    The good news for me is that Ahmadinejad will do this in private, and let me know individually by email, so you'll have to take my word on it.

    Nothing, until Ahmid... is gone. Otherwise we will never know if you went over.

    This thread Rostam, and the other on Iran by Knave, seem to be immoral in more than face value. Betting on death seems to be something even a Discussion Board could rise above...perhaps not...

    No, not so much.

    Come on, if you can't get a laugh out of the possible annihilation of another country then, I ask, what can you laugh at?

    Sorta like betting that an invasion will take 2 or 3 months, kill a few Iraqis and be paid for by the oil, right?

    How can you wipe a country off the map when you don't even believe it exists - it's not found on your maps or textbooks - I mean, what country are we talking about here?

    Probably about a week after the US bombs Iran.

    Whenever someone offends an Iranian these days, the response is a knee-jerk attack on Israel.


    This is not an Iranian invention.

    That would be too late; most likely within minutes.

    What if we bombed Israel, would they then nuke Iran? That way we could wipe Iran off the face of the earth then patch things up with Israel.

    Israel will be long gone from the face of the earth before your "ifs" can come true. But you can speculate all you want.

    Iran doesn't have the ability to wipe Israel off the map. Cause damage? Yes, even severe. But they could not wipe them off the map. And anything they do would be revisited back upon them a hundred fold.
