So, is anybody else's impression of the Stratfor e-mail leaks that they just confirm that Stratfor is a waste of money? I mean, one could ascertain this from reading any of George Friedman's books - The Coming War With Japan!* - but it's nice of Anonymous to make things so clear.
*Fantastic last line in its 1991 Foreign Affairs review: "One of the authors has published several works of fiction and the other is a national security expert at the Heritage Foundation." Friedman actually doubles down on the threat of a future Japanese empire in The Next 100 Years.
