At least 50,000 troops deployed to take part in a war. There must be US tanks, artillery and infantry involved in combat.

Borderline cases resolve to "No".

so "Land" means "involves land forces" even if they're airlifted into an island?

What about a civil war?

predicts YES

@Riggin I will N/A this market and go fight the libs

@lukres spoken like a true patriot

predicts YES

I am quite surprised by the low odds so far

@lukres This is concerning. 🫢

Will fighting under the UN flag (like in the Korean war) count?

bought Ṁ10 of YES

@mariopasquato Yes, for sure, I don't see why not

predicts YES

@mariopasquato I will just add that it needs to be an actual war. If, say, the Russian Federation collapses and US troops barge in as a purely "peacekeeping force" and there is little or no opposition, it will not count.

How will this resolve if it is a major war but thought in the air and on the sea, like a conflict with China over Taiwan would probably turn out?

@Symmetry I need to see US tanks, artillery & infantry involved in fighting since this question is about a land war. But I suppose I can count some ship/air force crews towards the 50,000.
