    Here's €10 that before June '17 we have war in the middle east.

    Who's a taker? I'll PayPal if I'm wrong and I expect the same
    from those losing.

    Go on then. Here's my crisp £10 (yeah I know it'll be worth less than 10 euros by then, but I don't have any euros)...

    We already have war in the middle east.
    Syria and Yemen are in flames.

    I'm in.

    So you are talking about a brand new war by May 31st?

    I think it pretty certain that Trump will want a war to call his own.

    If you want to be a pukka war profiteer Doug you should up the stakes. Say £12?

    Done. Dive, you in? 12 per head, pool goes to winner. We've got 36.

    A flaw in your plan, señor. If no war, you'll owe all 26,000 takers £12 each...
    And I'll hunt you down like a dog until you cough up

    It's not a flaw, it's leveraging the stakes 🙂

    Just a thought. You can be a bit inflammatory at times, which is great fun.
    But starting a war, single-handed, is probably beyond you. Don't think about it.
    But if you do.....all bets are off.

    There is already war in the Middle East. Has been for 5,000 years.

    How do we decide the winner on this basis?

    Larkie and you are betting against me. If no new armed conflict sparks
    within the time frame, I wire each of you 12 quid. If it does, each one of
    you wires me 12. Are we dancing?

    P.S. My count of 36 included my own 12 which, of course, are not in the
    pool. Or they are, but... I'm confused. Hope we all understand each other.
