Power and Control: Will Syria blink?

M. Simon, of Power and Control and I have a little gentleman’s wager going on inside the comments section of this Donald Sensing post over at Winds of Change (Mr. Simon having begged off my “let’s bet beer” proposal).

As I said in the comments, I think Sensing totally blew this one, but I have a lot of respect for the guy and his writing, which can be found here.  It’s “worth the trip.”

The crux of the matter is that he believes that Syria will NOT blink, and I think they will.  We’ve each agreed to publicly abase ourselves to whoever turns out to be right.

Here are a couple of his posts:  well worth reading.

Tactics, Strategy, Grand Tactics

Bekaa Valley Prognostications

Also, Mr. Simon is not merely engaged in wishful thinking.  There are, as he posts, legitimate grounds to think that Assad could be pushed into pulling the trigger.

Ain’t gonna happen, though.  ;)

  1. I abased myself.


    BTW it is really sad that Olmert didn’t have the nerve to pull the trigger. The Israelis were rooting for it and the Americans were dropping hints publically.

    Olmert lost his nerve.


    BTW First!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Why, thank you, sir.

    Although, in the case of my little blog, “First” unfortunately doesn’t carry the bragging rights… I’m just glad to have you swing by…

    more inflammatory geopolitical analysis as events warrant…
