Wanna bet we'll win the war? No, seriously: you can. Check it out yourself: Go here and click on "World Events" to see the odds for "The US Embassy in Pakistan Being Blown Up By A Nuclear Weapon" or "Date Line In Which Osama Bin Laden Will Be Consigned (Dead or Alive) To US Authorities." Ah, America.

Ah, America

I think you'll find that the company that takes these bets is not in America...

If possible, always link the thing itself: Politics--all you have to do is right click on the pop-up, scroll down to Properties and click on that and then cut-and-paste the URL there to put in the link window. Always test the link--I clicked on the BETonSports banner, first time through.

11:50 PM 19089 Will N Korea host the UN General Assembly before 12-31-03? Yes +15000

11:50 PM 19091 Will G Bush go on vacation in N Korea before 12-31-03? Yes +15000

H'mm, wonder how many bets they've taken on these?

11:50 PM 19093 Will N Korea dictator Kim Jong II and Michael Jackson hold a concert in Pyonyang to promote world peace before 12-31-03? Yes +15000

Now there's an axis of evil for you.
