Iraq is whispering something

  1. The poll is unscientific for many reasons.

    A poll is scientific when you can randomly select the group you poll from, or track the people you poll from, example: white males over the age of 20, etc.

    Neither is possible on internet polls.

    You could never verify randomness, nor be able to verify that one person wasn't voting multiple times, or having their friend vote on the poll, etc.

    Invalid, simply invalid.

  3. By expiration in March the Dow will be below 5800. The Dow will top in May-June. The Dow will continue to tank to 2000-3000 levels. The highly doubt that this is going to be a quick operation like last time.

    Remember, last time the Gulf War had to end early so that Israel would not retaliate with a nuke against Iraq for firing scuds at Israel. This time, it could be all out no holds barred war.

    Regardless of how it works out, the markets are tankin', the best reason being that nobody thinks it will tank, so it almost has to

    But it does say something, doesn't it ? Why hasn't the people who think Iraq or Korea are the real threat done the same ? The main problem here, as every single person I've known on this planet says, is that Americans are living isolated in their own land, and when 9/11 struck, they decided to remain further isolated. Too bad !

  5. The poll says and proves nothing until you know who responded to the poll.

  6. This is definitely:

    A voice whispers, "If you build it, they will come"

  7. Depends on the method of annihilation, and how many others get whacked in the process. A bullet in the head, market goes up, a protracted battle in Baghdad, market goes down.

    There are 3 carrier groups in the Gulf region now. Supposing Al-Queda or some other agency takes a suicide run on one of them via a small 2 person submarine. Is is possible that such a device can get through the defense perimeter?

    Hey, maybe Vinny the Chin can go over there and rub him out. Waddayu say Vinny?

    Anything is "possible".....but so unlikely as to be virtually impossible.

    More likely to get struck by lightning, win the lottery and hear a funny anti Islam joke from Traderfut2000 all simultaneously while attending a speech given by Thunderbolt on how he is really the biological father of Rosemary's Baby.

  10. Virtually impossible? You better hope that is the case because the US military is completely nonconversant in unconventional warfare.

    What I'm really interested in is what you think about Vinny taking him out.
