I-RAN: Some Bets That Would Clear Things Up in the Middle East
When I found out that President Trump had committed an honor killing and blown up Iranian General Qasem Soleimani my first reaction was this:
Hey @PredictIt can we get a market on the nationality of the next high profile foreigner that @realDonaldTrump blows up? https://t.co/0b2VbTjDJb

But the more I think about it, the more I realize that PredictIt is chronically under-served with foreign policy bets. So here are some more that I think would be A+ and would provide valuable insights into the direction of the USA’s beef with Iran.
— Will Secretary of State Mike Pompeo get fatter or skinnier as the Iran-USA crisis thickens?
— If a bigger conflict breaks out, will Donald Trump distribute this map to show the war’s progress?
— Will the cafeteria in the GOP Senate re-label the monthly kabob special as “Freedom Tacos?”
— Will Rep. Adam Schiff call Supreme Leader Ali Khameini to testify by 6/31?
— How many candidates will say the words, “Death to America” at the January Democratic Debate?
Lastly, here is my favorite one:
— Will there be any adults in government by 1/31?
