Iranian Hostage Crisis

My thoughts as the USA:

If Terrorism has been played:  There is no reason why you should space this card.  Play the OPS first and if you can secure Gulf States - if you had at least 1INF in Iran and had not already secured Gulf States.  Otherwise, it seems like 3 free OPS.

If Terrorist has NOT been played:  The potential for losing 2 cards in Late War is not worth the gamble to keep 3 OPS.  Space this badboy.

You really like gulf states.


Spacing this card is low on my priorities as the us unless I control Iran. Usually I need the 3 ops.

Would you space this card if you were the USA player and Terrorism had not been played?

It would just depend how badly I need the ops or what other cards I have in my hand. I hate spacing cards with a few exceptions obviously. Lose tempo and don't put any pressure. So spacing a card just because it increases a card that your opponent may or may not draw is low on my space priority list.

I don't think I have ever spaced this card.  Maybe once or twice when I had control of Iran and needed to keep it.  But I have never let the Terrorism card influence the decision.
