Besides monitoring the Yes Men, Amnesty International, and a swath of international media and activist organizations, Stratfor fancied itself as a superior intelligence agency, better than the FBI anyway. Here’s their Glossary entry for FBI:
Federal Bureau of Investigation, aka the Downtown Gang. Very good a breaking up used car rings. Kind of confused on anything more complicated. Fun to jerk with. Not fun when they jerk back.
Here are some clipped thoughts on the upcoming War in Iran (that is already underway to some extent):

If we think the Izzies [Israelis] have set back waiting on Iran to create a bomb we are like the CIA with their inability to predict just about anything.
Check INSIGHT I posted last week that everyone discounted. How come if its not in OS we nash our teeth? Intelligence agencies exist to have sources. That is what we are.

blast in Iran
I think the info that Fred sent in previously needs to be looked quite seriously here.
The insight seems like quite a stretch however it has been put out there for some reason or another and is now playing in to what we are seeing.
Source below was asked to clarify his remarks that the nuclear infrastructure had been destroyed. Source response:
Israeli commandos in collaboration with Kurd forces destroyed few underground facilities mainly used for the Iranian defense and nuclear research projects.
Despite the reports in the media and against any public knowledge, the promoter of a massive Israeli attack on Syria is the axis India-Russia-Turkey-Saudi Arabia. The axis US-Germany-France-China is against such an attack from obvious reasons. Not many people know that Russia is one of Israel’s largest military partners and India is Israel’s largest client.
If a direct conflict between Iran and Israel erupts, Russia and Saudi Arabia will gain the advantages on oil increasing prices. On the other hand, China and Europe are expected to loose [sic] from an oil crisis as a result of a conflict. Based on Israeli plans, the attack on Iran will last only 48 hours but will be so destructive that Iran will be unable to retaliate or recover and
the government will fall. It is hard to believe that Hamas or Hezbollah will try to get involved in this conflict.
In the open media many are pushing and expecting Israel to launch a massive attack on Iran. Even if the Israelis have the capabilities and are ready to attack by air, sea and land, there
is no need to attack the nuclear program at this point after the commandos destroyed a significant part of it.
If a massive attack on Iran happens soon, then the attack will have political and oil reasons and not nuclear. It is also very hard to believe that the Israelis will initiate an attack unless they act as a contractor for other nations or if Iran or its proxies attack first. With the revealed of the new UN report the Israelis have green light to take care of the Iranian proxies in
Gaza and Lebanon now with the entire world watching Iran. I think that we should expect escalations on these fronts rather than an Israeli attack on Iran.

Ah, what? Israel has already destroyed the Iranian prog/infra and this is all being engineered by Europeans so people forget about the economy crisis?!
These people spell lose as loose, and Israelis as “Izzies”. Can we believe anything they say?
