Is It True Vegas Is Betting More Troops Will Die In Afghanistan Than Iraq?

The answer to your question is „No.”
This question has been floating around from before Vietnam, when it suddenly became unpopular to serve your country. Bookies would often state that Vegas was betting on the troops, the same way they were betting on that season’s football teams.
The truth is that this is a disturbing lie, and has never been true. You mostly hear about it from people who are against the military and the current war time situation.
I would also venture to say that if you went to Vegas and tried to locate an actual place to put down some money on this, that you would be soon picked up by the local authorities and asked to leave.
