I've just been trying to look up gambling odds on America attacking Iran.

I found this from this

so if I bet a tenner on September how much do I win? And what would the odds on the opportunity to enjoy my winnings be?

Rightwingnuthouse is getting right into it of course...

While most experts believe that the Iranians will eventually have 50,000 centrifuges housed in the FEP at Natanz, the best estimate is that they currently only have 1000 – 1500 on hand, hence the long lead time between getting the enrichment plant up and running and converting enough U-235 to build a workable bomb. At full capacity, the plant should be able to enrich enough uranium to make 25-30 bombs a year.

Reza Aslan, who knows a little bit about Iran (he wrote 'No god but God': The War Within Islam) said, when asked last week by Jon Stewart, that Iran was a decade away from having nuclear weapons.

He's not the only person of insight to state this recently.

This rush to crush Iran is just more war-mongering to further hidden agendas. The world is being sacrificed to the lords of lies.

You won't catch me betting against the Hopi elders.

You buy and sell "shares" like you do stocks (though I've never tried it), without waiting for the event to occur. So you can buy at the current price, sell when the shares are higher, and enjoy your winnings before Armageddon.

But Armageddon might be closer than Iran's bomb.

Karmic dissonance generated by nefarious pursuits in conflict with the potential of collective destiny is the prime mover of Armaggedon.

I won't touch that bet, either.
