Jim welcomes back JKC de Courcy, Chief Executive at Courcy’s Intelligence Service in London, and publisher of Courcy’s Intelligence Brief. Mr. de Courcy sees three big threats in 2013: the continued fragmentation of the Middle East, a growing arms race between China and Japan, and an Israeli/Iranian confrontation. He sees continued bloodletting in the Middle East among religious factions, and notes that Jordan may be the next area of instability. Mr. de Courcy also sees growing tension between China and Japan, as the new government in Japan decides to re-arm. He also believes that Israel is planning for the worst, and may strike against Iran’s nuclear capability.
