Almost 500 years ago, the French prophet Michel de Nostradamus suggested that WWIII might start in Ukraine. Though his focus was on the decline and negligence of Western Europe and an invasion of Muslims into that region, he also clearly describes Russian actions, and part of his Quatrain 3:95 says:
“The Moorish law shall be on decline,
After it, another one more seducing,
Boristhenes (Dnieper) shall be the first to fall”
One argument is that Nostradamus’ predictions are meaningless nonsense. Though they are often vague and confusing (especially if one lacks knowledge of history, mythology, astronomy, and foreign languages) I think there is substance to dozens of his prophecies. And assuming he really could see some limited version of future events, I suspect that his reference to “Moorish law” is not a reference to North African Moors and Islam in this case, but is a reference to Sir Thomas Moore’s “Utopia” and to communism, which Nostradamus refers to elsewhere as “the loving of everything in common” on one side and those of “opposite ideas” on the other side. Perhaps those Westerners with the ideals of democracy and capitalism being referred to in line 2’s “another one more seducing.” With communism declining in Ukraine it shifted away from Russian influence to reliance on America… but has America pushed too far? It’s not 1992 anymore, when America completely dominated the world after the fall of the Soviet Union and before China became so strong. In bringing the former Soviet Republic of Ukraine into NATO and overthrowing it’s elected, Russia-friendly government, maybe the CIA and the war-mongering American leadership have poked the bear a little too much?
As I’ve been saying for years: “Ukraine is surrounded by the Russian Army (Dave’s prediction: Russia will eventually invade at least eastern Ukraine and America and Europe will do NOTHING)”
Today, (4/19/21) Bob Moriarty said this in an article at 321gold.com: “Russia is closing the Kerch Strait to all foreign military and state vessels as of the 24th of April. Reports say Russia has given the US and Nato until the 21st of April to remove all American and Nato forces from Ukraine. Putin has a major speech to the Russian parliament on April 21st. That would be a good time for a declaration of war.
In August of 1914 we had a similar situation where the great powers of the world simply slid into conflict without anyone in particular causing the war. This time clearly the US, Nato, the CIA and Ukraine are the aggressors. The US has 500,000 personnel in over 800 foreign bases surrounding both China and Russia. Russia has 14 foreign bases surrounding no one.
There is an excellent chance there will be war. There is also a high probability of it going nuclear. No one will win. Hundreds of millions or perhaps billions of people in the world will die.”
The quote above is just Moriarty’s opinion. It may or may not play out this way. But it did remind me of Nostradamus’ prophetic warnings about WWIII.
