As Iraqi Army, police, and security forces along the east bank of the Tigris River prepare for the next phase in the Battle for Mosul, Stratfor intelligence analysts discuss what’s next in the offensive to retake the city from Islamic State fighters.  Stratfor’s guest panel includes Senior Military Analyst Omar Lamrani, Senior Analyst Sim Tack, and Middle East and North Africa Analyst Emily Hawthorne.  The panel examines the ongoing struggle to defeat ISIS/ISIL and the geopolitical ramifications of that defeat for the Middle East.

In part two of this podcast,  Stratfor’s Faisel Pervaiz discusses how geopolitical analysis and forecasting can help businesses succeed.  Faisel’s special guest is Stratfor’s Vice President of Strategic Analysis Roger Baker.


If you want to know the whole story of the Battle for Mosul and what may happen after the city is retaken,  then this podcast by Stratfor will provide you with the tools needed for your geopolitical analysis of this explosive situation. I found this podcast illuminating, informative, and cautionary.
