Things get hairy for a high prestige US player when the Islamists have a WMD.

If you are lacking in 3 ops cards or specific anti-plot events, it seems like it is often better to deploy out of the country when multiple plots are played and deploy back in after they go off (possibly on a later turn when you have a better hand).

Do other people here find themselves running and then redeploying, rather than facing the possible prestige drop from a WMD, in a country where they have troops and plots?

Things definitely do get tense for the US when the Jihadists has WMDs. I've seen the deploy out to avoid a plot used once. Mainly I see (and do) an early use of a card for reserves in the round, especially if the US doesn't have a lot of 3's. Those reserve points can save your bacon when you need to alert a plot later.

Yes, I've done that too, several times.

Rather than calling it "cutting and running", however, I prefer to use the term the Reagan Administration used to describe the Marines' withdrawal from Beirut in 1984: "redeployment offshore."

Me too
It's a very good strategy but...

maybe not a good simulation action if you go out and in next round return!!
