Venezuela: The White House Broadens the Target Set for Sanctions
The United States, with national security adviser John Bolton, the principal architect of the White House’s strategy to force the Venezuelan president to step down, leading the charge, is doubling down on an economic coercion campaign with the intent of either compelling Nicolas Maduro to accept an exit deal to pave the way for an election or improve the conditions for a coup. The biggest question moving forward is how far the U.S. Treasury Department can and will go in enforcing a more expansive sanctions strategy against Venezuela. The countries foremost on the U.S. radar for their economic involvement with Venezuela include Russia, China, Cuba, Iran, Turkey and India.

Halford Mackinder's 1919 work Democratic Ideals and Reality laid the groundwork for the kind of geopolitical analysis that Stratfor produces today.
How Halford Mackinder Saw the World
In 1919, Halford Mackinder's Democratic Ideals and Reality was published, laying the geopolitical framework without which Stratfor might not exist today. It's a book that resonates with Stratfor Vice President of Strategic Analysis Rodger Baker as well as with his guest, historian and author Dr. Jeremi Suri, who discuss the book and the lessons it still offers on the relationship between geography, politics and society.

Season's Greetings from Stratfor
I'd like to first take this opportunity to thank you and our readers around the world. As we approach the end of the year, it is usually a time for all of us to reflect on the past and look forward to the future. Over the last few years, geopolitics (and the associated concept of geopolitical risk) has become quite the common buzzword in many circles, especially as people try to comprehend the shift in the international system we are all now witnessing. For us this is not new -- it has been our mission for over two decades. As we discuss in our 2019 Annual Forecast, the path forward will not be a straight line, but if you know how to focus on the horizon and not just the next few steps ahead, you will never be lost. This is the core of all of our work -- our assessment of

On Geopolitics: Looking Back at 2018
Over the past 12 months, Stratfor's analysts have run the rule on the topics and trends that are shaping the world around us, providing considered insight on a whole host of issues, ranging from the technological battle between the West and China to questions about the development of artificial intelligence, the militarization of space and U.S. President Donald Trump's intentions on the global scene. Here's a look back at some of the highlights from our weekly On Geopolitics column published over the past year.

A sign of the World Trade Organization (WTO) is seen at the body's headquarters in Geneva on Sept. 21.
Trump and the WTO's Uncertain Future
U.S. President Donald Trump has his guns trained on China today, but a bigger war is brewing at the World Trade Organization -- where the future of the global trade system is at stake. For the past two years, the United States has blocked new appointments to the WTO's Appellate Body, the organization's de facto supreme court over trade disputes. And unless new appointments are made by Dec. 10, 2019, the body's membership will fall below the number needed to rule on cases. In effect, the United States is threatening to sideline the WTO's crowning achievement -- a strong dispute-resolution mechanism -- giving the rest of the world just one year to offer concessions on reform to the United States, to seek other options or to face a world where the mechanism disintegrates. With the ascendance of a new global power -- China -- the Trump administration may have already decided

This photo shows the van that Alek Minassian, 25, reputedly drove down a street in Toronto, Canada, on April 23, 2018.
Why It Does -- yet Doesn't -- Matter That the Toronto Attacker Is a Terrorist
On April 23 in Toronto, Canada, 25-year-old Alek Minassian stomped on the gas pedal of a rented Ryder van, jumped a curb and steered the vehicle down a wide sidewalk running along Yonge Street. He charged down the sidewalk for over a mile, swerving to hit as many pedestrians as he could. He struck 24 of them, 10 fatally, before he turned the van down Poyntz Avenue, parked and exited it. When he was confronted by an armed police officer, Minassian repeatedly mimicked that he had a gun, eventually screaming for the officer to shoot him. Instead, the officer took him to the ground and handcuffed him, bringing an end to his bloody rampage.
