Thumbs up Pentagon to set up "terrorist and assassination" futures market! (no troll/link)

Ra!

WASHINGTON - The Pentagon (news - web sites) is setting up a stock-market style system in which investors would bet on terror attacks, assassinations and other events in the Middle East. Defense officials hope to gain intelligence and useful predictions while investors who guessed right would win profits.

If they included who'll be jailed within let's say a year, I'll go long on Rainer Hofmann!

Like an Israeli friend of mine said, it's comforting to know that when we're blown up (or our children), at least someone can buy a new car.

Imagine the commercials on TV: "with the deaths of Uday and Qusay last week, one winner managed to win the BIG JACKPOT of ....million dollars! Subscribe now and bet on Saddam or the Palestine conflict (predict the correct number of victims and win an extra bonus!) Call 0800 BOMBET"

I can just see them announce the results in between the lotto and keno results.

Everything you do continues long after you've gone

the Pentagon have pulled the plug no doubt coz of those whinney lefty Demofucktardcrats

the Pentagon even had a website up and running with trading to commence Oct 1

http://www.policyanalysismarket.org/pam_concept.htm

Summary of PAM Futures Contracts

Three types of futures contracts will be offered on PAM:

Quarterly contracts based on data indices that track economic health, civil stability, military disposition, and U.S. economic & military involvement in Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, and Turkey
Quarterly contracts that track global economic and conflict indicators
Specific possible events (e.g., U.S. recognition of Palestine in the first quarter of 2005)
When trading starts on October 1, 2003, there will be contracts of the first two types that mature at the end of the 4th quarter 2003, 1st 2004, 2nd 2004, and 3rd 2004. On January 1, 2004, contracts that mature at the end of the 4th quarter 2004 will be issued. In this way, the forward view of PAM will be maintained at one year.

Contracts of the third type will be issued into PAM as specific potential events of interest are identified.
