Breakpoint in Iraq: What went Wrong
Investors Insight Publishing
Today I am sending out a Special Edition of Outside the Box. My good
friend George Friedman at Stratfor.com has posted a very powerful essay
on the new situation in Iraq. I must warn you, it is disturbing for
those who, like myself, want a positive and peaceful outcome in Iraq.
But since our thinking and investing should reflect reality and not
wishful thinking, I suggest you take the time to read this piece.
As I have said in the past, Stratfor is my main and favorite source for
geo-political news and analysis. They have often been referred to in the
mainstream press as a 'private CIA,' but I would say in Stratfor's
defense that they seem to be more right than their government counterpart.
Again, if you are in the business of managing money where an eye to what
is happening in the world is critical, or you are a student of
geo-politics, or both, I strongly suggest you get your own subscription
to Stratfor. George tells me that the renewal rates are close to 90%,
which demonstrates how valuable their readers regard the information
that they receive on a daily basis. While this essay is on Iraq, they
also cover the rest of the world, and you can get information on
whatever part of the world you are interested in on their website.( Collapse )
