Nostradamus, Quatrain 2.97 ~
Pontiff beware of approaching, the city that two rivers arrouse,
will come from the spitting, you and yours when the Rose will flourish.
NEW PREDICTION: 11/26/14 -- FULL DESCRIPTION: 3/31/15: There is an entire page on this website dealing with the dangers facing Pope Francis and other future popes, based on a number of quatrains by Nostradamus and the revealed 2000 version of the Third Secret of Fatima (the deadly and fatal attack on "the Bishop in White" ... the Pope and his clergy ... by soldiers as they climb a Holy mountain after visiting a large city half-destroyed). Whether these prophecies will be applicable to Pope Francis or another is anything but certain, but we must apply this knowledge to each Pope that comes to power.
Base 7 dating: May 2016. This is the most troubling base 7 vector for such an event. Pope John Paul II was wounded by gun-toting Turkish assailant Mehmet Ali Agca in Rome on May 13, 1981. Thirty-five (5 x 7) years will have passed by May 2016. In addition, there was a second attempt on the life of Pope John Paul II on May 12, 1982 when he was stabbed by a Catholic priest with a bayonet. Thus, we have a somewhat weaker base 7 dating for an assassination (or attempt) in May 2017. The other vector, September 2013, is now 18 months in the past (it is believed, but not proven, that John Paul I was poisoned in September 1978). This vector will not return again until September 2020.
Continue or return to previous position.
"Chyren selin" or the "Great Monarch" Comes to Power
NEW PREDICTION: 11/26/14 -- DESCRIPTION: 1/25/16: Base 7 dating: May 2016.
Ignore that fellow on the right ... although he is the current legitimate claimant to the throne of France, Louis Alphonse of Bourbon simply has the wrong name. The next and last king of France, according to Nostradamus, will have the first name of Henric or Henrik.
Pay close attention to the man on the left ... he is already a king of a former Gallic nation (Belgium) and bears a name of an important figure prophesied by Nostradamus ... a figure as important as the elusive, yet to appear, Henric Selin.
The next French presidential elections will not be held until April or May 2017 ... a year later than projected here. Thus, if by a far stretch it is a politician rather than a new royal figure Nostradamus was anticipating, it may well be that this prediction will be a year late. That depends on whether or not global war breaks out this year. Obviously, the current president François Hollande is not the long-prophesied "great Monarch" or the "Chyren selin" promised in Nostradamus quatrains. Yet, if World War III does break out in June or July 2016, leading to a Russian invasion of Europe in August 2016, there will be no opportunity for this leader to arise, at least through the normal process of presidential elections. France is one of the nations that will come under attack and be partitioned, the southern portion taken over by Islamic armies from the Middle East invading from the south, other parts decimated by a new and bloody French Revolution and also by Russian air strikes.
Yet there are some who believe this "great monarch" will arise in northwestern France during the chaos of war, occupation, and revolution mentioned above. If so, then it may well be in May 2017 or a year later in May 2018 that "Chyren selin," also in various quatrains spelled "Chiren selin" or "Chyren"/"Chiren" without the "selin" appearing afterwards, comes to power.
I would point out that Chiren is an actual family name, although there are no politicians in France or anywhere else, nor anyone in royalty, bearing this name. Just as there is a real man named Mabus (Secretary of the US Navy, Raymond Mabus), and a real female pop singer named Alus, and a real general in eastern Libya fighting ISIS named Hifter, there are real people with the last name of Chiren. There are also real people with the last name of Selin.
Furthermore, there is also a young American educator and university professor with ties to Europe who has the uncanny name of Henrik Selin. Since many scholars over the centuries have believed that Chyren or Chiren is actually a scrambling of Henryc or Henric (note I say a scrambling of an actual first name rather than an anagram with missing or added letters), in this individual you have the actual full name of Henric Selin, only the "c" in Henric is Germanized to a "k" ... giving instead the name of Henrik. CLOSE ENOUGH!
Now I am not going to say anything more on this matter. In this case, Mr. Henric Selin is an educator and has no interest in being a world leader whatsoever. But somewhere in the world, perhaps in France itself, there may indeed be a man by this very same name!
Thus, what at one time would have been considered a radical idea may be the only correct one: that the names Nostradamus gave to future figures in his apocalyptic visions were not anagrams, or anagrams with a letter or two changed, added, or taken away, but actual names. Nor are they necessarily symbols either. Thus, Selin may not be a symbolic device that represents the moon goddess, Selene, and thus a crescent moon. In the case of the educator discussed above, Selin is an actual family name.
But Nostradamus does more than name a future French leader ... he says the man will be crowned as "King of France" while what can only be considered a world war is in progress and then proceed to become an Emperor over many European nations and even parts of the Middle East. This would tend to rule out his being a current or future French president!
Furthermore, in Nostradamus' various quatrains of global war in our near future, he names two different liberators who go on to become kings and emperors. One, Henric, is not yet a king. The other, according to his prophecies, will already be a king when war breaks out. His name is Philippe (Philip).
The two wars are quite different in nature, and each has its own unique heroic leader who is victorious and becomes an emperor. Again, one is not yet a king but made a king during the war; the other is already a king when the war begins.
Two world wars in other words ... not the last two, but the next two: World War III and World War IV. Most European prophecies go no further than the first of these, what we would call World War III, and in some cases its immediate aftermath. The victor of World War III is often referred to as "the great Monarch" or "the grand Monarch." He is never given a name ... except in one prophecy where we are given the first initial of his first name. That initial is "P."
Johannes Lichtenberger ~
In 1488, Johannes Lichtenberger, the court astrologer of Frederick III, published his popular encyclopedia Prognostico in Latino, which contains predictions of World War III, the Grand Monarch, and the Holy Pope:
"It says in The Book of the Frankish Kings that it will be from the Carolingian, that is from the race of King Charles of France, that an emperor named P will arise in the last days. He will be a prince and a monarch and will reform the churches of all Europe ..."
Furthermore, Nostradamus mentions a "king of Gaul" and "Gallic king" who will fight against the barbarians during a future war and become a Roman emperor. Gaul was not only France; it was also Belgium.
And there in the Gallic country of Belgium sits a king, a monarch since July 21, 2013, whose initial is "P" and name is "Philippe": King Philippe. As a global war looms near, this king of Gaul is yet only 55 years old and is Europe's third youngest reigning monarch.
The question ultimately evolves into who comes to power first: Philippe or Henric?
It would appear that it will be Philippe. Perhaps the May 2016 dating is when he will take his first actions against ISIS or whoever the enemy is by that time.
If this is true, then Henric Selin may actually be the great French king who comes to power during World War IV ... not World War III!
Once again there is an old European prophecy that provides a complex system of holy days that function much like the planets do in astronomical/astrological predictions. It gives the date a French king will ascend the throne during a time of a terrrible war in the year 2038.
Werdin dOrante (13th Century) ~
The Great Monarch and the Great Pope will precede the Antichrist. The nations will be in wars for four years and a great part of the world will be destroyed. All the sects will vanish. The capital of the world will fall. The Pope will go over the sea carrying the sign of redemption on his forehead, and after the victory of the Pope and the Great Monarch peace will reign on earth. The Pope will cross the sea in a year when the Feast of St. George (April 23rd) falls on Good Friday, and St. Marks feast (April 25th) comes on Easter Sunday, and the Feast of St. Anthony falls on Pentecost, and the Feast of St. John the Baptist falls on Corpus Christi. The Great Monarch will come to restore peace and the Pope will share in his victory.
The configuration of Feast days mentioned in this prophecy next occurs in the year 2038.
This prophecy practically supports one by Jeane Dixon that gives the year 2037 as the start of World War IV (she gives 2020 as the start of World War III). Time enough for two world wars? Certainly. World War III will last anywhere from a few nightmarish weeks to 25 months. The latter figure of 25 months may be due to the Muslim attacks and invasions against southern Europe that follow the blitzkrieg of central and western Europe by Russia and the resulting quick defeat of the Russian army by biological and chemical agents, as well as a very horrific three-day nuclear war between Russia and the U.S.
17 years later, a fourth world war begins, but as much as 21 years later if she was off on the 2020 dating and it happens in 2016.
Regarding the "great Pontiff" or "great Pope" his name will begin with the letter "R":
Abbot Joachim (born 1480) ~
"This glorious pontiff's name shall begin with "R."
This sort of lets Pope Francis off the hook as being the so-called last pope of Malachy, Peter of Rome. His initial is "F" not "R." Malachy's prophecies were either wrong, a fraudulent invention by the Vatican, or else entirely misinterpreted. I have already said countless times that there is no earthly good reason why ten antipopes were considered by prophecy scholars in The Vatican to be predicted in his list of future popes. Note his list was of future popes to come and not future antipopes! That means if Malachy was correct in his intentions, those ten antipopes must be deleted from the list, and that means there are still ten more popes to go, and the predicted mottos that have been applied to popes past and present must be rolled back by ten mottos.

NEW PREDICTION: 11/26/14 -- DESCRIPTION: 11/25/15: Base 7 dating: May 2016.
I don't know if this event has already happened to a somewhat lesser degree or if that event in question was a warning of what is to come next year in May. Here are my notes and an accompanying news report from September 17, 2015:
Notes (9.17.15): Occasionally stuff starts happening before you get a chance to properly present it. It appears the Chile earthquake predicted in the title above may have occurred before I was to properly present it in a section below: Chile earthquake: 8.3-magnitude temblor strikes off coast, killing 5 - September 17, 2015.
(CNN) A powerful 8.3-magnitude earthquake struck Chile, generating a nearly 16-foot wave, prompting the evacuation of about 1 million people and triggering tsunami advisories as far away as California. Authorities reported at least five deaths ... Chile's national emergency agency issued a tsunami alert, ordering evacuations in coastal areas from Arica to Puerto Aysen ... Tsunami advisories were issued thousands of miles away, including in Hawaii and California. A tsunami advisory was issued for the coastal areas of Southern California, which means strong currents are likely and residents should stay away from the shore.
Then again, this may be foreshock and, as such, a warning of a 9th magnitude quake yet to come by May 2016. After all this was not a magnitude 9 earthquake, but an 8.3, and any seismologist would tell you there is a world of difference between an 8.3 and a 9.0. If the quake that struck Japan in March 2011 had been an 8.3 rather than a 9.0, it would have been an event similar to this one, rather than the truly apocalyptic catastrophe it turned out to be. Not that this earthquake and tsunami in Chile is a small event or should be ignored, but if it had been a magnitude 9, we would be talking about it for the next three months.
Added comment on news video: Man, that FOX News guy in the video is an idiot! The Chile 8.3 quake is WORSE than the one in Fukushima? In addition, it was actually located at Sendai, Miyagi prefecture. Fukushima was the location of the nuclear power plant that was hit by the resulting tsunami. That was the 9.0 one from March 2011! The great 1904 California Earthquake? It was in 1906, pal ... in San Francisco. FOX get your act and your history together, chuckleheads!
This event was rare enough that if I had not specified a 9.0 magnitude but simply predicted a very major earthquake (8.3 is very major indeed) the Chile earthquake of 2015 would have been fulfilled eight months early. But since I did specify a 9.0, this can only be regarded as partially successful ... thus far anyway. So, it's status is currently that of a PREDICTION PARTIALLY FULFILLED.
We will see if something bigger and worse materializes in 2016 for this region.

Russia Shoots Down
U.S. Fighter Jet Over Ukraine
NEW PREDICTION: 11/26/14 -- DESCRIPTION: 1/2/16: Base 7 dating: May 2016.
This one is a no-brainer to figure out; it will either happen or not happen. Originally, the prediction was for the downing of a U.S. jet or plane over Ukraine ... but it should be obvious, now that Russian forces have been in Syria since late September bombing targets by air and sea, that it could also happen over Syria (or Iraq or Turkey too, I suppose). If this happens, it will certainly escalate the conflict significantly and lead to a global war.

NEW PREDICTION: 11/26/14 -- DESCRIPTION: 3/31/15: Base 7 dating: May-June 2016. On May 20, 2009, actress Lucy Gordon was found hanged by the neck in her Paris flat. Her death was later ruled as a suicide. Exactly two weeks later, on June 3, 2009, the body of actor David Carradine, was found hanged in a Bangkok hotel room. His death was ruled as being either an accidental death or a suicide in the commission of autoerotic asphyxiation by hanging. I would also add that these two related deaths helped fulfill the dreaded "celebrity deaths always happening in threes" (they don't always) because pop singer Michael Jackson died from "accidental" acute propofol and benzodiazepine intoxication three weeks after Carradine's death on June 25, 2009. This may have been a deciding factor in why Gordon and Carradine died in 2009 rather 2010, but one can never be sure of this.
I predicted both of these events (that ended up being Gordon's and Carradine's hanging deaths) would occur in May 2010 (for a male celebrity to be found hanged) and July 2010 (for a female celebrity to be found hanged), but instead each happened a year early. The base 7 trend actually favors May-July 2017 over May-June 2016; however, it is possible that the deaths of Gordon and Carradine altered the timeline to occur a year earlier from now on.
Such changes do happen in base 7 timelines, and often we see events from late in the year occur a few months earlier the next time around, and a few months earlier the next time around, until, in some cases, they either revert back to mid-year or late year again ... or start happening a year early. (Sometimes the same thing happens in the opposite direction, with the vector being altered later and later.) Since this "year premature" scenario has only happened once regarding this kind of Hollywood suicide trend (for both Gordon and Carradine), it is impossible to know if the pattern has changed to being a year sooner or will resume in what would otherwise be the target dates of May 2017 and July 2017. Thus, I may have to make a duplicate post for this prediction on the 2017 pages if the events fail to occur in 2016.
What ended up being the autoerotic hanging death of David Carradine was largely set in precedent by the very strange autoerotic suicide death of actor Albert Dekker in May 1968. To learn more about Dekker's death watch the following video:
After watching this I think you will agree that David Carradine's death was quite similar to Dekker's.
Female cases of death by autoerotic asphyxiation are still largely covered up, usually by family members, when they do occur; indeed, even "suicide by hanging" deaths, without the erotic ingredient being present, still often get initially reported as "found dead," "cause of death has not been released," and "no foul play suspected" ... at least in the West. In some cases, years later there may be a phony medical cause attached such as a heart attack. In the East, India and South Korea in particular, suicides by hanging are quickly reported in the initial news reports, with no effort to cover up the facts.
It is believed that the numbers of females engaging in the practice of autoerotic asphyxiation by various methods, as well as consensual asphyxiation with a partner, is quite high. Accidental deaths of females occurring by this practice is severely under-reported even for purposes of medical studies, although the number of men who die in this manner still remains in the majority. Even so, it is possible that 1 in 10 hanging deaths of females is due to accidental autoerotic asphyxiation, with the number of male and female hanging suicides on the increase annually since 2005: Hanging, strangulation and suffocation was the most common method of suicide in 2013, accounting for 56.1% of male suicides and 40.2% of female suicides.
I always found the closeness of dates (two weeks apart) in the Lucy Gordon and David Carradine deaths, given that both hanged themselves, as being very strange. This is not to suggest that Gordon hanged herself for the same reason as Carradine did; hers was simply suicide, his was either a suicide or accidental death with the element of the autoerotic. Even so, as the title of the prediction suggests, it is possible that this pairing up of hanging deaths is setting up another scenario for 2016 or 2017: a double suicide by hanging. These do happen and have been reported in recent years. Whether in such a scenario this might be simple suicide or erotic suicide, I can not say. In all probability, if this double from 2009 occurs again, they will probably be separate, individual cases. But mutual suicide by hanging is also a distinct possibility.
ACTRESS HANGS HERSELF WITH SKIRT
actress hangs herself in hotel room during modelling trip
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Ugly Betty star Lisa Lynn Masters, who was battling depression, was found dead inside her hotel room closet
By Marc Walker 15:26, 18 NOV 2016 Updated 15:45, 18 NOV 2016
An actress who appeared in top US TV shows and films took her own life during a modelling trip to Peru. Lisa Lynn Masters, 52, who was battling depression, was found dead inside her hotel room closet after hanging herself, an official said.
The star, from Brooklyn, New York, had roles in Gossip Girl , Ugly Betty , Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, The Stepford Wives and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
Her husband William Brooks was in shock after her death, according to a friend writing on a GoFundMe page set up to pay for her body's repatriation to America.
Authorities in the South American country's capital Lima, said they found two letters which revealed her mental health issues at the Nuevo Mundo Hotel.
The fundraising page, which hit its £24,000 goal in one day, will pay for funeral expenses and help her widower, who works as a healing arts practitioner in Brooklyn. Ani Mason wrote on the page: "Our dear friend Lisa Masters passed away tragically and unexpectedly. Lisas genuine warmth, generosity and tenacious strength will be deeply missed."
She adds: "Lisas beloved husband William is shocked and grieving her sudden loss. In the midst of this mourning, William faces daunting financial challenges, including the substantial funeral and transport expenses for Lisa in and between Peru and the United States."
Tragic Lisa played a relationship therapist in hit Netflix show Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Her agent Christopher D Silveri confirmed her death and said: "As to her husband and family's wishes, we hope that the industry can mourn her death without details.
"In these darkening days, we hope those who have had the pleasure of knowing her will see how brightly she shined and will find that light within themselves and continue to share it with others - just as she would have."
By Denise Nequinto Posted on November 23, 2016
It comes as a great shock to everyone that actress and model Lisa Masters has passed away. It was even more surprising when it was revealed that Lisa Masters did not just die, she supposedly committed suicide.
It was during a modeling gig in Lima, Peru that Masters was found dead in her hotel room. She was 52 years old. At 11:50 p.m, hotel employees found the model/actress in the closet, having hung herself with her skirt.
Lisa Masters ventured into acting after starting out as a model and television reporter. Masters was known for having roles in Gossip Girl, Law & Order: SVU, The Stepford Wives, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Ugly Betty.
Struggling with Depression
According to officials, the cause of Lisas supposed suicide was her was struggle with depression. Officials found anti-depressants among her belongings when her body was found.
Lisas husband William and her family are requesting for privacy at this very difficult time.
Lisas friends put up a GoFundMe page to ask for help in covering the expenses for her transport from Peru back to the U.S as well as funeral expenses. It has currently raised an amount $48, 980 on a $50,000 goal. The goal amount will not only shoulder the transport and funeral expenses, it will also cover the rent for the apartment William and Lisa shared in Brooklyn, as well as moving expenses for when William ultimately moves out.
The funeral service for Lisa will be at her childhood home of Asheville, North Carolina.
The cause of her death brings awareness to the importance of mental health once again. Depression is a hard battle being fought by many, and the time it takes to get better from it varies from person to person. Many celebrities have been known to struggle with depression, the same reason being the cause for quite a number of celebrity deaths.
COMMENTS (12/15/16): I'd say Lisa Masters was probably more famous than Lucy Gordon ... at least to Americans. Or perhaps they were equal in fame. Not famous enough though to link her death with the time-linked scenarios that claimed the lives of Natalie Wood and Brittany Murphy. It is a remarkable event from the perspective of this prediction because the male celebrity part of it may now be in the process of being revealed. It involves the mysterious death of a famed TV yoga mogul. However, the details have not yet been published. If the details are what I suspect they may be, then this prediction is completely finished. It is also possible the other half will be early next year, unless I missed something that happened earlier this year. Currently, this is a PREDICTION 50% FULFILLED.
If this had been an accident or a murder it could have been prevented. Suicides, on the other hand, are more difficult to prevent since the would-be victim does not want his/her intentions known, would deny such intentions exist anyway, and may only be dimly aware of them themselves in some cases. Often the act is close to spontaneous, not premeditated, but more often than not impulsive.
To stop it you literally have to be there before it happens.
In any event, the deaths in April 2002 of Layne Staley and Linda Lovelace provided a "name blending" clue that someone named "Lisa" might be next. In less than 24 hours after discussing this on our forum and rattling our brains, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes died in a car crash.
No name blending occurred this year, but the name Lisa Lopes, and the "Lynn" from the name Linda (Lovelace) being on the base 7 timeline (... 1967-1974-1981-1988-1995-2002-2009-2016 ...), by themselves were apparently clues that another Lisa, indeed a Lisa Lynn or Lisa Linda, was in danger this year.
THE OTHER SHOE THAT DROPPED?
Tice, CorePower Yoga Founder, Dead Under Suspicious
By Jen Krausz | Thursday, 15 Dec 2016 06:42 AM
Trevor Tice, 48, who founded CorePower Yoga, was found dead in his home Monday under what police are calling suspicious circumstances.
Police discovered the body at about 12:15 p.m. Monday in Tices San Diego home after a friend tried to check on him because he wasnt answering his phone, the Denver Post reported.
Spokeswoman for the Denver-based CorePower Yoga Christine Turner confirmed Tice had passed away in a statement.
"We are deeply saddened to confirm that our CorePower Yoga founder, Trevor Tice, passed away on Monday," she said, the Post reported. "No further details are available about the cause of death. ... Our community is grieving this tragic loss and honoring Trevors tremendous legacy."
Tice founded CorePower in Denver in 2002, which quickly spread to more than 150 studios across the U.S.
The unique approach combines yoga with vigorous workouts, with the company being dubbed the Starbucks of Yoga, according to The Washington Post. The approach also has been called a westernizing of yoga.
Tice formerly owned an IT company but turned to yoga after he shattered his ankle in a climbing accident.
Tice sold the IT business in 2001 before founding CorePower.
His death is being investigated and an autopsy will be completed soon.
Lt. Mike Holden of the San Diego police homicide unit said they didn't know what happened. This could be a straight death. Or, potentially, he could have been murdered and this is a homicide investigation. We dont know, he told the Denver Post.
There are some potential circumstances here that make this a suspicious death. Holden added.
He did not elaborate on those details.
COMMENTS (12/22/16): I haven't made a check in the news in the last few days regarding updates to this report. I don't think the autopsy has been conducted or, if so, findings yet published. It looks like "suspicious circumstances" translates either into homicide or suicide. So, this case is pending ... unless an actor suddenly hangs himself out of the blue like David Carradine.
WARNINGS OR A WEAK REPEAT AND A CLOSE CALL?
COMMENTS (2/18/16): The hanging death of theater actor Raphael Schumacher certainly raised my eyebrows. But he was hardly famous in the way David Carradine was. But his death is troubling and a tragedy for those who did know him. The fact that in the same month on live television UFC champ Ronda Rousey said she had been considering suicide in November 2015 is also troubling, although how that would have been carried out is anyone's guess. I regard these two, one an actual hanging, but by accident, the other the consideration of suicide as a course of action, as an indication that the trend from 2009 that claimed the lives of actors David Carradine and Lucy Gordon is once again active.

NEW PREDICTION: 2/11/16 -- Base 7 dating: June 2016. Alois Irlmaier and the Seer of Waldviertel warn of great and horrible naval battles in the Mediterranean Sea and the Adriatic Sea as 1) new troubles begin in Greece, Italy, the Balkans, and Turkey, and 2) the great Middle East War expands and grows steadily worse. The list of nations capable of causing such catastrophe in this region are: Russia, China, the United States, Israel, Iran, Great Britain, and France. It is possible a terrorist protostate like Islamic State could get their hands on a nuclear device as well.
The Seer of Waldviertel appears to believe Russia will be behind the nuclear naval strikes since, from a central European perspective, Russia is the only northern nation with such weapons.

Israel Bombs and Destroys Nuclear Facility in Iran, Likely the Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant
NEW PREDICTION: 10/23/14 -- Base 7 dating: June 2016.
I understand that the problem at this time is the Islamic State fighting, conquering, and slaughtering innocents in Syria and Iraq. Meantime, the nation of Iran has done nothing to be attacked for by the West as of yet. Nevertheless, I have to present my base 7 projections based on historical precedent. ISRAEL does have a considerable fear of Iran weaponizing their nuclear materials and creating nuclear warheads to load on missiles capable of striking Tel Aviv and other cities.
In June 1981, due to a similar concern, Israel launched an air strike against the Osirak nuclear reactor in Iraq. I am projecting that they will do the same thing 35 (5 x 7) years later: this time against a nuclear facility in IRAN. The likeliest target will be the Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant, although it could be another power plant elsewhere in Iran or on one of its islands.

Israel Launches Attacks Against Both Syria's Assad and the Islamic State
NEW PREDICTION: 11/26/14 -- DESCRIPTION: 12/19/15: Prior to Arab Spring in 2011, and the start of the Syrian Civil War, conventional wisdom since 1973 has always been that World War III in the Middle East would begin as a major Arab-Israeli War, likely triggered by a conflict between Israel and Syria. I projected this might begin in October 2015. What began instead, in late September 2015, was RUSSIA sending its military into Syria and launching an air campaign against ISIS ... and supporting the regime of Bashar al-Assad by attacking his enemies as well. This, along with the friction between Russia and Turkey, has taken the place of an Arab-Israeli war for the time being as a trigger for WW3 in the Middle East.
It appears Israel will be quite busy in June 2016 or thereabouts. Friction between Russia and Turkey was the one shoe of World War III to drop; Israel's decision to enter the war in Syria will be the other shoe dropping. What may be begin as Israeli strikes against ISIS positions would be initially welcomed by the Russian and Western coalition currently arrayed against the terrorist caliphate. But it seems inevitable that Assad will provoke Israel in some manner as he has periodically since the start of the Syrian Civil War. His government forces have fired rockets into Israel and breached Gaza at least a half dozen times, and Israel has responded by striking military targets in Syrian towns and near Syrian cities. These have been treated by news media as isolated incidents thus far, but for such an event to occur now might well escalate tensions to highly dangerous levels. With Russia on his side, Assad might be emboldened to attack Israel with more powerful weapons, possibly missiles with warheads carrying the deadly chemical sarin. This could be in the form of a retaliatory strike against northern Israeli cities following an incident not unlike those that have already happened since 2011. Regardless of Israel's justification in lashing out at Syria itself in a very major way, Russia and some members allied with it against ISIS, such as Iran, would see it differently and then World War III in not only the Middle East, but the Eastern Mediterranean, the Adriatic Sea, the Balkans, and then all of Europe will likely follow.

Josup Terelya (taken from Ancient Prophecies, narrated by David McCallum, 1995) ~
The Soviet Union will cease to be. Russia will be free of communism. But the day will come when it will fall under a dictatorship. The people will rally around one man. 'Vladimir' will be his name. There will be a great flame, a fire, in southern Russia, and Vladimir will stir up the people of Russia to go to war against Israel. Fires will break out everywhere, the whole of Russia will burn, even China will be in flames.
NEW PREDICTION: 11/26/14 -- DESCRIPTION: 12/9/14: One of the two Vladimirs, President Vladimir Putin or Liberal Democratic Party leader Vladimir Zhrinovsky, will demand an immediate vote in the United Nations Security Council in June 2016 on a resolution condemning Israel's air attacks against Iran and Syria. In addition to a demand for the withdrawal of all Israeli forces from Lebanon, Syria, Gaza, northern Iraq, and the Sinai, their waters and air space, his call to assemble a multi-national force to launch an air and naval attack on Israel and destroy known missile and weapons sites inside the Jewish state is quickly rejected. The Russian leader warns that Moscow is quite capable of acting unilaterally if the United Nations hesitates to condemn Israel for its use of WMD in retaliatory attacks against Syria. Putin/Zhirinovsky is told the resolution will be reviewed and that Russia can request a new vote, this time in the UN assembly, within 4 to 8 weeks if hostilities have not ended.
Back home, millions of Russians are protesting Israel's nuclear attack on Syrian cities and expressing rage at NATO and EU members of the United Nations that are siding with the Jewish state. Vladimir is hailed as a hero and calls for direct Russian military action are made daily by the angry populace.

WAR OF GOG: Turkey, Iran, Azerbaijan, and Russia Commence Their Invasion of Israel
Ezekiel 38:2-9 (abridged) ~
Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meschech and Tubal [Turkey] ... I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: Persia [Iran], Ethiopia [all east Africa south of Egypt], and Libya with them, all of them with shield and helmet. After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have always been waste ... thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.
NEW PREDICTION: 11/26/14 -- DESCRIPTION: 9/10/15: Base 7 dating: July 2016.
Iran and Russia are already on the same side ... both supporting Bashar al-Assad of Syria while sharing a mutual desire to extinguish the menace known as ISIS (or Islamic State). In regards to ISIS, Russia and Turkey are likewise of the same mind and purpose. Azerbaijan is providing military assistance to Russia in its effort prop up the Assad regime. Although the United States shares Russia's determination to bring an end to ISIS' reign of terror, it is staunchly opposed to allowing Assad to remain in power. There is also concern by the US that Moscow might attack moderate anti-Assad groups and also, through miscalculation or accident, trigger a military exchange between Russian and US air forces. Such an incident could easily escalate into a major conflict between the two powerful nations.
Israel's view of a possible Russian military buildup in Syria is one of alarm: Israel wary of Russian military build-up in Syria. On the other hand, Israel takes the side of the nations mentioned above, including Russia, in designating ISIS as a threat to the region that must be eliminated. Israel also remains a deadly foe of Iran, regardless of Iran's hatred for ISIS.
The problem for America and for Israel will be Russian and Iranian support for Bashar al-Assad (who still may be the figure Nostradamus names as "Alus sanguinaire," translated as "the bloody Alus"). Thus, Assad, who has already fired missiles and rockets into the Israeli-occupied Golan and into northern Israel itself at least a half dozen times since the start of the Syrian Civil War in 2011 (followed by retaliatory strikes by Israel), could yet provoke a deadly conflict between his country and Israel. In so doing, the resulting war between the two would quickly draw in any other major players in the region, namely Russia, the United States, Turkey, and Iran.
A few days from now, France intends to be added to the list of nations launching airstrikes against ISIS in Syria. In October, the UK will be debating the issue of joining the US, Turkey, and France in launching airstrikes against ISIS in Syria and also in Iraq. Thus, what is slowly shaping up is a NATO conflict in Syria and Iraq. If Russia turns adversary, Turkey will be forced to decide whether to continue on as a NATO ally or to leave the organization and support Russia. It remains a possibility that Turkish President Recep Erdogan may be overthrown in a coup staged by Moscow and that Turkey then will be taken over by the Russian military, effectively making Turkey a "principality" of Russia and Putin (or a successor to Putin) its "chief prince." What both Turkey and Iran do in the coming weeks and months is key as to whether Ezekiel's Old Testament prophecy concerning a league of nations led by Gog launching an attack on Israel actually happens or not.
The prospects for a Gog-style war happening seven years ago were not as strong as they are today. Still, although conditions for such an outcome are more favorable in 2016 than they were in 2009, events up to the end of 2008 and the first few months of 2009 were horrendous enough that a Third World War could have erupted and the Gog scenario play out. One of the deciding factors that prevented this from happening in 2009 was Hezbollah's decision NOT to expand the Israel-Gaza Conflict of December 2008-January 2009 into Lebanon and Syria, which would have happened had they launched rocket attacks into Israel as they did in 2006. As a result the war in Gaza burned itself out after over a month of fighting. Another deciding factor was Russia's decision to back off any further military adventures after the one they pursued in Georgia in August 2008. Much like the fears today that another Ukraine conflict might spill over into the rest of Eastern Europe and the Balkans, the worries then were of a second Russian invasion of Georgia. Likewise, although I find it extremely unlikely, it is not impossible for the current drift towards global war to cease by next year.
It must be remembered that the war described by the prophet Jeremiah and the war prophesied by Ezekiel are vastly different. In the prophecy of Jeremiah, northern Israel (Hazor) is attacked by air and laid waste by a latter days "king of Babylon." On the other hand, in Ezekiel, the attempted invasion of Israel by Gog and his allies is repelled and 5/6 of the invading army destroyed. I still insist that ISIS (Islamic State) and its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi are well-placed to become the "king of Babylon." Even his name, Baghdadi, would suggest that he is to become this king. Still, anything is possible and both scenarios could occur, if not at the same time, then in tandem ... and not far apart.
PREDICTION-WITHIN-PREDICTION FULFILLED: FAILED COUP IN TURKEY HAD RUSSIAN CONNECTION
QUOTED FROM ABOVE: It remains a possibility that Turkish President Recep Erdogan may be overthrown in a coup staged by Moscow and that Turkey then will be taken over by the Russian military, effectively making Turkey a "principality" of Russia and Putin (or a successor to Putin) its "chief prince."
Sinister Role in the Failed Turkish Coup
Analysis: Pulling Erdogan from Western Orbit is a Russian Objective
The Washington Free Beacon
One group that stands to gain significantly from Erdogans purges are the local proponents of Eurasianist thinking. In the days leading up to the attempted coup, Alexandr Duginthe Russian ideologue who is the father of the modern Eurasian Movement and a favorite Kremlin harbinger of conflict and annexationwas sitting in Ankara, alternatively visiting with leading Turkish Eurasianists and close allies of President Erdogan.
Dugin, as Georgia and Ukraine have learned, is rarely near a conflict by chance, often providing both the ideological foundations for modern Russian expansionism and a kind of advance team for local mobilization.
As early as 2004, U.S. officials warned that Putin aimed to detach Turkey from the West. Could the rapid realignment underway after the coup indicate that Russias hybrid war to capture Turkey into its geopolitical orbit is yielding results?
A TV coup?
In the aftermath of the failed coup in Turkey, more than 6,000 members of the military have been arrested; more than 50,000 education personnel, police, judges, and civil servants have been fired; and millions of academics have been banned from leaving the country until potential connections to the coup plot are evaluated. The speed with which the enemies lists were produced, and with which the arrests were conducted, has led to questions from European officials about the governments preparations in advance of the coup.
But the conspiracy theories spinning out of recent events both mask and expose a deep geopolitical shift underway in Turkey that could have profound consequences for NATO and American allies in the region.
Stories are now circulating that Russian officials warned their Turkish counterparts of the pending coup, and that Iranian officials were in contact with their Turkish counterparts throughout the night. Both stories add to the sense that some elements inside Turkey aimed to capitalize upon the coup to widen the distance between Turkey and its Western allies and commitments.
The rapid purge of opponents has amplified questions about the baffling coup attempt. Turkeys military has staged four successful coupsand this iteration deviated from that playbook in ways that defy easy explanation.
Istanbuls bridges over the Bosporus were blockaded. Black ops forces appeared at the hotel in Marmaris where President Erdogan was supposedly staying, dropping down the side of the building on rope-lines. Fighter jets broke the sound barrier over Istanbul and Ankara, and tanks drove through the streets, projecting the appearance of broad military involvement. Cadets from military academies were enlisted as manpower. An international TV station was seized but continued to broadcast the dramatic conflict. Communications were broadly uninterrupted throughout the country. Several broadcast text messages were even sent from Erdogan and his allies to Turkish cellphone users, calling them to the streets to defend their nation.
These actions required pre-planning but made little tactical sensea series of powerful visuals projecting that a coup was underway, and providing rally points for media and demonstrators, but which held little value in securing strategic assets, institutions, and national political leaders.
Under scrutiny, its not hard to see why some observers believe the coup was staged. In a poll conducted after the coup, one third of Turks said they believed Erdogan was behind the coup.
The rise, fall, and return of Turkeys Eurasianists
President Putin has been using Dugin as an emissary to the Turkish elite since Dugin accompanied Putin on an official visit in 2004. His mission was to build Russias network of influence to pull Turkey away from the West. This was based on his core idea that a new Eurasian empire will be constructed on the fundamental principle of the common enemy: the rejection of Atlanticism, strategic control [over] the USA, and the refusal to allow liberal values to dominate us.
Dugins concept of a Turkic-Slavic alliance found supporters in Turkish nationalist circles, especially those identifying as Kemalists, who saw Eurasianism as an alternative to both the European Union and Islamism.
This was especially true for some senior Turkish military officers. Many of this groupwhich advocated for closer ties with Russia and called for Turkey to leave NATOwere imprisoned and convicted after being accused of participating in the Ergenekon terrorist organization, another supposed group of coup plotters opposed to Erdogan. In April, Turkeys Supreme Court of Appeals overturned the convictions, saying the organization had never existed.
Adding to the layers of complexity, Gulenists in the judiciary had supposedly been instrumental in convicting the Ergenekon group, acting out another scene in Turkeys long securlarists/military vs. Islamists drama. The Ergenekon trials became part of the break-up between Erdogan and Gulen. Gulen went into exile, and the Ergenekon groupand its Eurasianist beliefshave been enjoying a period of rehabilitation with Erdogan and the AKP ruling party.
Their revival may reflect a deeper shift in geopolitics that has largely been overlooked, running parallel to Erdogans own shift away from European structures following the Taksim protests in 2013.
Dugins presence in Ankara throughout the coup and his longterm activities are a reminder of the multi-year, up-and-down Russian effort to bring Turkey into the Eurasian orbitmore down than up in recent years.
The war in Syria and the rise of ISIS have changed the dynamics of the region. As Putin backed and armed Assad, Erdogan stood by Obama in calling for Assad to leave power. Turkey and Russia ended generally warm relations and began to trade barbs; at one point Putin even called for regime change in Turkey. These tensions came to a head after Turkey shot down a Russian fighter jet that violated its airspace in November 2015.
In the months that followed, Russia ramped up various forms of pressure on Turkey and its president. Russia stalled a $15 billion pipeline deal, banned Russian tourists from traveling to Turkey, and levied other economic measures. In arming Kurdish militants in Syria and building ties with Iraqi Kurdistan, Russia played up Turkish fears of Kurdish separatism. The Russian and Turkish militaries severed ties.
Russian warships sail almost daily through the Bosporus, sometimes brandishing arms, carrying men and materiel from Sevastopol to Tartus. FSB agents are suspected of conducting a series of assassinations of enemies of the Russian state in Turkey. Both measures serve to remind of the increasing Russian reach beyond the Black Sea. Russia has also deployed so-called anti-access/area denial capabilities in the eastern Mediterranean that could effectively shut down Turkish airspace.
Russian state media has frequently cited the rehabilitated Turkish Eurasianists to build the story of a deep rift between Erdogan and the military elite on Syria policy and ties to Russia. Russia, especially through agents like Dugin, actively supports groups calling for a strategic realignment of Turkish interests, building political pressure against Erdogan internally.
In May, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu resigned, signaling, in retrospect, an end to the period of deal making with the EU on refugees and Turkish accession. By the time Erdogan offered an apology to Russia at the end of June for the downing of the jet, Russian pressure had clearly yielded results. The bombing of the Istanbul airport by Russian-speaking members of ISIS the next day reinforced the belief that Turkey needed a new approach to its Syria policy.
Dugin had long referred to Davutoglu as part of a pro-American conspiracy (backed, of course, by Gulen) to keep Turkey from moving toward Russia. His friends, the former military leaders of the Ergenekon group, are now part of Dogu Perinceks Homeland Party, which last week claimed they had been sent by businessmen close to Erdogan to improve relations with Russia and re-establish ties with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
The events of the last week have likely limited Erdogans options with his Western partners. While Putin has said little following the coup attempt, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was quick to warn that Turkeys membership in NATO might be at stake if they weaken their democracy.
Russian shadow over the coup
Kerry spent the night of the coup locked away with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, hammering out the details of a secret new agreement to cooperate on Syria. During these discussions, Kerry called Obama; the White House then released a statement saying they supported the democratically elected government of Turkey. Few others did until after the coup had failed.
Dugin, meanwhile, met less than two hours before the coup with close Erdogan ally and Mayor of Ankara Melih Gokcek, who explained to Dugin that Turkey was divided between two groups: patriots and Gulenists/American agents. He said the CIA had used the Gulen movement to put Turkey at loggerheads with Russia. The pilots who had shot down the Russian plane, Gokcek said, were also Gulenist agents following American orders.
As parting words, Gokcek offered: We underestimated the power of the parallel state, which Gulens followers and Americans created inside Turkey. It was our mistake. But we are going to make it right now. The first step will be a new rapprochement with Moscow. After the coup, Gokcek announced that the pilots had been detained.
Dugin now says the U.S.-backed coup was a Hail Mary pass to keep Turkey from realigning with Russia.
But Russian state media has also released a story saying Erdogan was prepared for the coup because Russia interceptedvia listening stations in northern Syria that apparently monitor Turkish military transmissionsintelligence on the coup and notified Turkey in advance. The Turkish military had earlier said they received intel on the potential coup, which may have forced the plotters to initiate their plan earlier than intended.
A Realignment to Russia
The nationalistic outpouring in support of Erdogan (which became profoundly anti-American in nature when accusations of Gulenist involvement were made) and Erdogans subsequent decision to enact deep purges throughout national structures (which will have consequences with Western partners) both serve to create distance between Turkey and the West.
The presence of certain Russian actors around the margins of the Turkish coup does little to answer any questions about what really happened on July 15. But it is clear that the active measures taken against Turkey by Russia in the military, political, and economic realms are yielding results. As another Kremlin ideologue, Sergey Karaganov, said in an interview just days before the coup attempt: In the face of our problems with Turkey, we have pursued a clear, hard political linewith success.
Coercing Turkey away from the West has been a goal pursued by Dugin since 1997. And, as Lenin once said: In politics it is not so important who directly advocates particular views. What is important is who stands to gain from these views, proposals, measures.
In this sense, Russia had a good week with Turkey. Erdogans military purgewhich has cleared more than a quarter of generals from the ranksmay mean Eurasianists fill empty slots. Putin and Erdogan have announced they will meet in early August.
Dugins media onslaught has continued. He is calling for a Russian-Turkish alliance to expel the United States and NATO from the Black Sea, and to ensure a Turkish departure from NATO. He says Kerry suggested kicking Turkey out of NATO to pre-empt Turkeys announcement that it will withdraw. While there is no clear way to remove a member from the alliance for bad behavior, quitting only takes a letter.
If Russia had wanted to design a campaign of reflexive controlusing disinformation to coerce an adversary into voluntarily selecting actions that will be advantageous to Russiaagainst Turkey, it couldnt have done it any better. This may sound like the stuff of conspiracies, but the idea that Russia knows how to use fiction for political gain is hardly far-fetched. Estonias Foreign Minister recently described how Russia is simulating a war over the Baltic sea in order to show a war on state TV. If a made-for-TV warwhy not a made-for-TV coup?
There are profound consequences to ignoring Russias many-fronted hybrid war against the West, and from failing to acknowledge that Turkey is, and has been, as much a target of this war as Ukraine or the Baltic states. As long as these explanations, which are amply documented with circumstantial and frequently direct evidence, are dismissed as conspiracy theories, leaders can duck responsibility for addressing the crisis.

Istanbul (CNN) Turks found their country locked in a state of emergency Thursday as their President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, vowed to root out perceived enemies of the state following a failed coup over the weekend. The three-month emergency status gives the President and his Cabinet sweeping new powers that Erdogan says are aimed at tackling a looming "threat to democracy."
But rights groups and Western leaders have raised concerns that they will be used to achieve the exact opposite -- a rollback on democratic freedoms.
But what will state-of-emergency Turkey actually look like?
Here are the measures the government can legally impose in a state of emergency, according to a CNN examination of the law:
Restrictions on the public
Governments can impose curfews and declare certain public and private areas off limits, and it can ban or restrict meetings, gatherings and rallies. A rally organized by the opposition secular Republican People's Party, (CHP), is planned for the weekend -- because the opposition actually supported Erdogan against the coup, the government's response to the rally is widely seen as a test of its commitment to democratic freedoms. Government-backed security forces in a state of emergency do not need the usual authorization from a judge to search people.
Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus said Thursday that the government planned to suspend the European Convention on Human Rights, the state-run Anadolu news agency reported.
The convention safeguards everything from the right to life, freedom from torture, the right to a fair trial and freedom of expression.
Political power shift
The state of emergency status will see a huge shift of power to Erdogan, who can take over all of the Prime Minister's responsibilities, should he wish to do so. Instead of passing laws through the usually long parliamentary process, the Cabinet can create a draft decree, and with the President's approval, it will go to Parliament for a simple yes or no vote, to be made within 30 days.
The Constitutional Court in this period will be essentially stripped of its main function in overseeing the passage of laws. It will have no oversight of decrees in this period.
The power of Turkey's 81 provincial governors will also be increased in decision-making at the local level.
Press and NGO restrictions
The government or governors can ban the print and distribution of journals, magazines, newspapers, brochures, books and fliers in this period. It can also restrict or ban any kind of audio-visual broadcast, whether it be television or radio news, or TV shows or movies.
A spokesman for Erdogan told CNN the state of emergency would not mean a crackdown on the media. But before the state of emergency was declared, the government banned a magazine from printing its edition on the coup and it revoked the licenses of 24 broadcasters it said were linked to cleric Fethullah Gulen.
Erdogan and his government accuse Gulen of masterminding the coup and have requested his extradition from the United States, where he lives in self-imposed exile. Amnesty International reported that at least 34 journalists had their press cards canceled.
'Threat to democracy'
One tool that could be used is the scrapping of appeals of court decisions, presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin told CNN in an interview, referring especially to civil servants. "That is really the primary goal ... that these people, who have been involved in this coup attempt, and who killed people, murdered people basically on the street, will be put on trial without any chance of coming back to the state bureaucracy again."
Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag noted that the emergency move doesn't amount to "martial law" since the government is not "handing over the power to rule to the military."
"It is still in civilian hands," he said.
The move, Bozdag said on Thursday, was made "to get rid of the Fethullah Terror organization and its tentacles."
"In fact if our administration had the opportunity to take these steps without declaring a state of emergency then we would not have had to make this decision," he said.

(CNN) Forces loyal to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan quashed a coup attempt by some members of the military that began Friday evening and devolved into turmoil and violence. The chaos and confusion was reflected in the question of how many people had been killed in just a few hours. Government counts ranged near 200, with scores more injured. More than 2,800 military officers have been detained.
Here's what happened, and when (all times Turkish local time):
Suddenly, chaos, confusion
Turkey, Friday night: Tanks roll onto the streets of the capital, Ankara, and Istanbul. Who ordered them there is unclear. Uniformed soldiers block the famous Bosphorus Bridge connecting the European and Asian sides of Istanbul. Cars flow from the European side to the Asian side, but soldiers and military vehicles block the path to the European side. Some 300 people gather in Istanbul's Taksim Square, some waving Turkish flags. Army tanks and a military vehicle sit at the square. Video and photos on social media show large crowds marching through the streets, some taunting soldiers as Turkish military fire guns in the air. Gunfire rings out as a confused nation watches.
Social media falls silent
Friday, 10:50 p.m.: Facebook, Twitter and YouTube experience interruptions or outages in Turkey. Turkey Blocks, a group that tracks censorship in Turkey, tweets that all three services are blocked in the country. Dyn, another service that tracks Internet performance globally, reports that Facebook and Twitter are blocked for "about an hour."
Military moves in
Friday, 11:25 p.m.: A faction of the military issues a declaration, saying the "political administration that has lost all legitimacy has been forced to withdraw." Turkish state broadcaster TRT says it has been taken over by members of the military who were part of the coup attempt. CNN Turk reports that soldiers have entered its building as well, and have forced the network off the air.

COMMENTS (8/1/16): OK. So the "prediction-within-the-prediction" ... a coup in Turkey ... did happen, but it failed. It appears that it was engineered to fail on purpose. News reports are suggesting Erdogan himself may have arranged the coup in order to consolidate power. Yet, in the process, he has blamed the United States ... not something that would be necessary to become a bigger dictator in Turkey. The West has been dealing with this leader for years, fully aware of his tyrannical nature. No, it is Russia that is guiding the Turkish leader towards blaming the US for harboring an obscure Islamic rival from Turkey ... one who was somehow responsible for the coup, plus some idiotic talk about the coup being a CIA plot. You're going to see those kind of conspiracy reports on videos, but not much professional work about the actual reality behind the attempted coup: It was either a botched coup by the military, plain and simple, or it was planned by insiders loyal to Moscow.
I suspect Putin may have been behind the coup, but with every intention to see it fail. Why would he do that?
According to the Sorcha Faal, Putin did it to drive Erdogan away from the US and NATO and into Russia's waiting arms.
The other possibility being explored is that the coup was indeed an inside job, but Putin's intelligence knew about it and tipped Erdogan off. Out of gratitude, Erdogan is turning away from the West and towards Russia.
Either way, Turkey is turning into a Russian vassal.
In the end, it doesn't matter if Erdogan is "Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal" or if Putin is. Turkey will have the full military support of The Russian Federation in all future wars.
GOG ALERT: RUSSIAN FIGHTER JET SHOT DOWN BY TURKEY; PUTIN WARNS OF DIRE CONSEQUENCES
Ezekiel 38:3: Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.
See my comment in text above: It remains a possibility that Turkish President Recep Erdogan may be overthrown in a coup staged by Moscow and that Turkey then will be taken over by the Russian military, effectively making Turkey a "principality" of Russia and Putin (or a successor to Putin) its "chief prince."
jet's downing 'stab in the back'; Turkey says warning
ignored -- Russian President Vladimir Putin said the
downing of the Russian plane would have "serious
consequences for Russia's relationship with Turkey"
By Don Melvin, Michael Martinez and Zeynep Bilginsoy, CNN
Updated 2345 GMT (0745 HKT) November 24, 2015
Istanbul (CNN)One of the world's most volatile regions was roiled further Tuesday when Turkey shot down a Russian warplane near the Turkish-Syrian border. Turkey said it hit the plane after it violated Turkey's airspace and ignored 10 warnings. One of the two pilots was killed in the air by fire from the ground, according to Russia's state-run news agency RIA Novosti. The fate of the second pilot wasn't disclosed. Meanwhile, a Russian marine was killed on Tuesday during an operation to rescue the two pilots, who were flying an Su-24 warplane in a combat sortie, according to RIA Novosti.
Turkey and Russia exchanged bellicose language after the downing of the plane, raising fears in the international community that the Syrian conflict could spiral into something wider. The Russian plane was dealt with because it "did not answer our warning," Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday.
ISIS isn't present at that border area, but Turkmen were there, Erdogan said. Anyone who bombs that area attacks "our brothers and sisters -- Turkmen," Erdogan said in Ankara. Turkmen are a Turkic-speaking, traditionally nomadic people who live primarily in Central Asia, but a small minority of them can be found in the Middle East, primarily in northern Iraq, Iran and Turkey.
Erdogan said the plane incident was not something Turkey wanted to see happen, and "this does not indicate any animosity" toward any country. He added the downed jet was "one of two" planes but didn't elaborate beyond that. It's been Turkey's cool approach that has prevented similar incidents up to now, he added. Turkey's ambassador to the United States, Serdar Kilic, tweeted: "Understand this: Turkey is a country whose warnings should be taken seriously and listened to. Don't test Turkey's patience. Try to win its friendship."
A U.S. official told CNN that a calculation shows the Russian jet was in Turkish airspace for 30 seconds or less. The Turkish government has said that it issued 10 warnings over five minutes but did not say all of those warnings occurred while the jet was in their airspace.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said the downing of the plane would have "serious consequences for Russia's relationship with Turkey." The shooting of the plane, Putin said, "represents a stab in the back by the terrorists' accomplices. I can't describe what has happened today in any other way. Our plane was downed over Syrian territory by an air-to-air missile from a Turkish F-16 jet.
"The plane fell on Syrian territory 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) away from the Turkish border. It was flying 1 kilometer away from the Turkish border when it was attacked. In any case, neither our pilots nor our jet posed any threat to Turkey. That is obvious. They were carrying out an operation fighting against ISIL in Northern Latakia." (ISIL is another acronym for ISIS.)
The two Russian pilots managed to eject their Su-24 plane, the Russian military said. Two Russian Mi-8 helicopters performed a search-and-rescue operation, but one of them was damaged by small arms fire and made an emergency landing, Russian Lt. Gen. Sergei Rudskoy said. One Russian marine was killed. "The helicopter was destroyed by mortar fire conducted from the territory controlled by illegal, armed groups," Rudskoy said.
Future Russia airstrikes "will be carried out only under cover of fighter aircraft," Rudskoy said. Also, the Russian cruiser Moskva will go to the shore zone of Syrian port of Latakia, and the military "warns that all the potentially dangerous targets will be destroyed," Rudskoy said.
New video published on social media by a Syrian rebel group allegedly shows Turkmen rebels shooting at the two ejected pilots landing on the border between Turkey and Syria. CNN couldn't immediately confirm the video's claim. Speaking in Turkish language, a man shouts off-camera, "don't shoot at them" and "capture them alive," referring to the two Russian pilots. Heavy gunfire can be heard on the video. The rebels also shout, "God is great!"
Erdogan on Tuesday pointed how Turkey has been hosting 2 million Syrian refugees while European countries have panicked over smaller numbers seeking refuge there. It's not possible to resolve terrorism or refugee problems without finding a sustainable solution to Syria, but the Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad and countries that support it have started a new assault that does not fit with finding a resolution for the area, Erdogan said. Turkey vehemently opposes the Assad regime. Russia is backing it.
NATO calls emergency meeting
After holding an emergency meeting in Brussels on Tuesday, NATO's governing body, the North Atlantic Council, said Turkey informed the body about the plane's downing. Turkey is a member of NATO, which considers an attack on one of its members to be an attack on them all.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg urged "calm and de-escalation" to resolve the Turkey-Russia situation, but he noted how Russian forces approach allies' borders. "I have previously expressed my concern about the implications of the military actions of the Russian Federation close to NATO's borders," the Stoltenberg said. "This highlights the importance of having and respecting arrangements to avoid such incidents in the future. As we have repeatedly made clear, we stand in solidarity with Turkey and support the territorial integrity of our NATO ally, Turkey," he added. NATO continues to follow the matter, Stoltenberg said.
GOG ALERT: RUSSIAN FIGHTER JETS VIOLATING TURKISH AIRSPACE; NATO EXPRESSES CONCERN AND OUTRAGE
Russian ground troops in Syria, Turkey's airspace

Updated 0106 GMT (0806 HKT) October 7, 2015 | Video Source: CNN
Washington (CNN)Russian involvement in the 4½-year-old Syrian civil war seems to be escalating, with NATO's secretary general confirming Tuesday a second incursion by Russian planes into Turkish airspace and saying Russian ground troops were in Syria as well. "It's unacceptable, it's dangerous, and it's reckless behavior and it adds to the tensions," Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg told CNN about the incursions into Turkish airspace. "We see the violation of the Turkish airspace becomes more important, more dangerous, because it happens in a context where we see more fighting, more Russian military presence in Syria."
Stoltenberg expressed alarm over how the Russian military grows on several fronts in Syria. "So we have seen a substantial military buildup by Russia in Syria, both in the air with the combat planes and air defense systems, but also an increasing number of ground troops," he said. "In addition to that, they have deployed naval assets, a large number of naval assets close to the Syrian shores. And they continue to do so."
The first violation of Turkey's airspace is reported to have happened Saturday. The second was Sunday, officials said. In addition, the Turkish air force said that a MiG-29 fighter jet of an unidentified nationality had interfered Monday with eight Turkish F-16s on the Turkey-Syria border. The Turkish air force reported the jet put its planes under a radar lock for four minutes and 30 seconds.
Stoltenberg rebuked Russian combat aircraft for two alleged violations of Turkey's airspace. "We also have seen two of them, two violations of Turkish airspace," he said at a news conference. "Intelligence that we have received provides me with reason to say it doesn't look like an accident."
Turkey has been a member of NATO since 1952, and alliance rules say that an attack on any of the 28 member states should be treated as an attack on all.
Stoltenberg said the "substantial buildup of Russian forces in Syria" includes "ground troops in connection with the air base they have." Stoltenberg said he doubted that Russia, which has been conducting airstrikes in Syria, was interested primarily in fighting the terrorist group ISIS, also known as ISIL. "I'm also concerned that Russia is not targeting ISIL but instead attacking the Syrian opposition and civilians," he said.

Washington (CNN)The secretary general of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization condemned Tuesday in strong terms the violation of Turkish airspace by Russian planes, as he said a second incursion by Russian planes had been confirmed. "Russian combat aircraft have violated Turkish airspace," Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said, according to the NATO website. "This is unacceptable."
Stoltenberg elaborated in a news conference, saying that the incursions had happened more than once. "It doesn't look like an accident and we also have seen two of them, two violations of Turkish airspace," said Stoltenberg. "Intelligence that we have received provides me with reason to say it doesn't look like an accident."
The first violation of Turkey's airspace is reported to have happened on Saturday. The second, officials say, took place on Sunday.
Turkey has been a member of the alliance since 1952, and NATO rules say that an attack on any of the 28 member states should be treated as an attack on them all.
Stoltenberg also said he doubted that Russia, in its airstrikes in Syria, was concerned primarily with fighting the terrorist group ISIS, also known as ISIL. "I'm also concerned that Russia is not targeting ISIL, but instead attacking the Syrian opposition and civilians," he said. "I discussed the situation in Syria with (Russian) Foreign Minister (Sergey) Lavrov in New York last week. I urge Russia to play a constructive and cooperative role in the fight against ISIL. And to strive for a negotiated political solution to the conflict in Syria," he said.
While Russia has said that it is conducting military operations to wipe out ISIS, U.S. officials have questioned that aim given that many of its airstrikes have not targeted places ISIS is active. Instead, they have seen the effort mostly as a move to bolster Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, a close Moscow ally.
The latest U.S. assessment of Moscow's activity in western Syria indicates Russia has moved several ground combat weapons and troops into the area to potentially back up Syrian forces in the field planning to attack anti-regime forces, according to two U.S. defense officials. The U.S. views the move as Russia "stepping up its ground activity" in Syria to attack those forces, rather than ISIS elements, according to one of the officials. It's believed the Russians are positioning the weapons to be able to support a Syrian ground offensive, the officials said.
The equipment includes several piece of artillery, as well as four BM-30 multiple-launch rocket systems -- all considered to be highly accurate weapons. The latter is capable of rapid-fire rocket launches.

CNN)Turkey said it intercepted a Russian jet that violated its airspace over the weekend. The country called in the Russian ambassador and lodged a strong condemnation of the violation, Turkey's foreign ministry said in a statement Monday. "The Russian Federation will be responsible for any undesired incident that may occur," the ministry warned.
The incident occurred Saturday in the Yayladagi region of Turkey's southern Hatay province. "The Russian aircraft exited Turkish airspace into Syria after it was intercepted by two F-16s from the Turkish air force, which were conducting patrols in the region."
A spokesman for Russia's defense ministry dismissed any idea that the incident was anything nefarious, stating flight patterns that change "under certain weather conditions" might help explain what happened. "This current incident is a result of bad weather conditions in this region," spokesman Igor Konashenkov told reporters. "You shouldn't look for conspiracy theories."
Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said Monday the violation was "a mistake," according to the semiofficial Anadolu news agency. "Our foreign minister called the Russian foreign minister and said clearly that this should not be repeated," Anadolu quoted Davutoglu as saying in an interview with Haberturk TV. "The information from Russia this morning was that this happened by mistake and that they respect Turkish borders and that it will not be repeated.
"Whoever violates our airspace, our rules of engagement are clear," he said. "We will warn whoever violates our borders and our airspace in a friendly manner. This country can be whichever and Russia is our neighbor, our friend. In this way, there is no tension between Turkey and Russia. The Syria issue is not a Turkish-Russian crisis," he said.
NATO's North Atlantic Council issued a statement Monday on what it called "the recent dangerous military activities of the Russian Federation in and around Syria," saying there were violations of Turkish airspace by Russian Su-30 and Su-24 aircraft both Saturday and Sunday. "Turkish fighter aircraft responded to these incursions by closing to identify the intruder, after which the Russian planes departed Turkish airspace," the statement said.
Turkey and Russia are at odds regarding Syria's civil war. Ankara's position is that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has to go for the conflict to end. Moscow backs the Syrian leader and has begun airstrikes that it says are against ISIS militants.

Martial Law Imposed Nationwide in United States
NEW PREDICTION: 10/26/14 -- Base 7 dating: July 2016.
This is only one month before a base 7 vector for a deadly pandemic, based on the Swine Flu pandemics of 1918 and 2009, to appear in the United States and other countries, including Europe. So it is possible that this case of "martial law" arises from a mass quarantine when a deadlier form of ebola or some other virulent plague breaks out worldwide. Quarantine would therefore lead to martial law and FEMA death camps.
However, there will be plenty of other pretexts for martial law to suddenly be declared and citizens detained, rounded up, and sent off to FEMA camps. A dangerous escalation of the US, possibly NATO, war throughout the Middle East and the threat of a Russian/Chinese nuclear attack might be enough to cause violent anti-war protests to become armed rebellions and revolutions state by state. A completely devastated world and US economy, complete with cancelling of credit, bank closures, functionless ATMs, along with famines and food shortages, could do it as well. Social chaos might develop due to comet fragments hitting the earth (as shown in a prediction below). Deadly ash and nationwide fires from the super-eruption of the Yellowstone caldera could also contribute to the social disorder that would make declaring martial law appear necessary. Even a "zombie apocalypse" could trigger martial law if a large number of people become crazed, naked, flesh-eating psychopaths running rampant and killing at random due to rephaim or demonic possession (which will be blamed on bath salts and Krokodil addictions). Along with this may be a rising toll of ebola victims returning from the dead, as reported recently in parts of west Africa, and behaving like real zombies. Add to this mix large urban and suburban areas of cities and towns with "zombie houses" (untenanted homes the owners could no longer afford and could not sell, taken over by the government and left essentially vacant), poor or no lighting at night, a high crime rate and murderous attacks on those few people left in such neighborhoods still able to afford to live in their houses.
It would be fairly easy for martial law to be imposed nationwide even if only one of these potential pretexts were to occur. American citizens would be arrested and detained, denied their rights, unduly processed, then carted off in buses and railway cars to be imprisoned, raped, tortured, and executed in any of the hundreds of dreadful death camps dotting the map. Some no doubt will suffer the most horrific, unspeakable deaths as human sacrifices offered up to Satan by the Illuminati.
ANTI-TRUMP PROTESTS TURN INTO NATIONWIDE RIOTS

Last Chance to Prevent Total World War
NEW PREDICTION: 11/26/14 -- DESCRIPTION: 1/24/16: Base 7 dating: August 2016.
There is a curious overlap of one month here. Quite frankly, if the events of June and July 2016 do occur, in June-July or earlier, it is difficult to believe that a ceasefire or any other substantial anti-war development in August 2016 could even be possible. Not impossible, but unlikely. Perhaps this "last chance" will come earlier than June or July, let alone August, maybe in April or May, preventing a global war from beginning. It could come as late as June, despite anything Israel does, but once (or I should say "if") the Gog scenario is put into play in July, I doubt there will be any turning back.
There are numerous possiblities at this time. A full military alliance between the United States and the Russian Federation as war continues in the Middle East is one. This could even include allowing Israel to join the anti-ISIS coalition. Ending the Syrian Civil War and allowing Assad to remain in power, although likely to be regarded as an unpopular move by some nations, while bolstering the Shi'a government in Iraq with a superior state-of-the-art military, could return the balance of power to the Middle East. ISIS would quickly lose power and influence in the region if this were to occur. This second scenario would essentially mean the end of the current war. It could also come in the form of a newly elected leader, or at least someone likely to win an election ... someone that ISIS would have just cause to dread. This third scenario is hard to speculate about and would not become obvious until the time came for it to happen. I am sure there are many other scenarios to prevent a third world war, and they could come from the most unexpected places, such as Iran, India, or even China.
If global war cannot be prevented, it is still possible at least to postpone it anywhere from two or three years from now (2018-19) to thirteen years later (2028-29) ... or even as late as 2037.
A REAL CEASEFIRE AT LAST .. THIS ONE MAY HOLD
war: New nationwide ceasefire underway
By Angela Dewan and
Onur Cakir, CNN
The Assad regime -- along with its Russian and Iranian sponsors -- turned the tide of the civil war in seizing complete control of the largest city, or what remained of it. Rebel groups -- some of them supported by Turkey and the Gulf States -- retreated in disarray. Their evacuation was negotiated between Russia and Turkey.
Vladimir Putin held
all the best cards, and it seems that Ankara decided to
cash in its chips. It was not abandoning its allies among
the Syrian factions, but refocusing its efforts on
creating a "Turkey-friendly" region in northern
Syria. In the process President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has

remains a hurdle
COMMENTS (2/3/17): I have made comparisons between The Syrian Civil War and The Bosnian Conflict. There are differences of course.
Bosnia's war lasted from April 6, 1992 to December 14, 1995 (3 years, 8 months, 1 week and 6 days). The Syrian conflict lasted from March 15, 2011 to December 30, 2016 (5 years, 10 months, and 3 weeks). HOWEVER, the official starting date of the war was backdated to the beginning of the Arab Spring protests in Syria. At that time, and for some time to follow, what was really going on was social unrest and government crackdowns in that country. It would be over a year later following a visit by the Red Cross that the UN would declare a civil war was in progress. That date was July 12, 2012. That really means that sometime between March 15, 2011 and July 12, 2012 was when the civil war actually began. No one really knows the date that happened. Thus, the war may have been closer to 4 years 8 months or 5 years in length rather than 5 years and 11 months. It was still more than a year longer than Bosnia.
Like Bosnia which had three ceasefires in 1995 with the last one being in December, it appears the ceasefire in Syria that finally matters is also the third one of the year, declared December 30, 2016. A very definite PREDICTION FULFILLED.
But bear in mind that a new war erupted in Kosovo two years and five months later in February 1998.
I should also add that while the civil war is now apparently over, the war against ISIS continues in Syria and Iraq. There are no peacekeepers in Syria or Iraq, as there were in Bosnia, but instead soldiers at war with ISIS.
I can't begin to imagine what a Kosovo War in the Middle East might look like, but it would be much larger and much bloodier than the Syrian Civil War was. My guess is that it will in part involve ISIS and possibly a new leadership in Iraq, supported by Iran. This may be the great war in the Middle East prophesied by Alois Irlmaier, especially if Israel, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia get involved. This will likely not occur until sometime next year, 2018, or early 2019.
Then again, US President Donald Trump has already declared the US will go to war big time with ISIS this year. The Arab version of Slobodan Milosevic, Bashar al-Assad, is also battling ISIS in Syria. So there may not even be a two or three year lull.
Yet another ceasefire attempt in Syria
Syria truce starts
By Don Melvin and Jason Hanna, CNN
Updated 1328 GMT (2128 HKT) February 26, 2016
(CNN)The proposed "cessation of hostilities" in Syria, announced jointly earlier this week by Russia and the United States, went into effect at midnight Friday in Damascus (5 p.m. ET). U.N. Special Envoy Staffan De Mistura said at a press briefing in Geneva that immediate reports indicated "suddenly both Daraa and Damascus had calmed down."
An unusual quiet descended on major cities in Syria, said Rami Abdulrahman, director of the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, adding there were brief exceptions including some unexplained explosions reported in the north.
Nobody expects peace to settle over the nation overnight, De Mistura said. "There are some high chances that we should expect hiccups," he said. If there are violations, he said, "the important point that we need to see is that if those incidents will be quickly brought under control and contained.
'Our best chance'
Another Syria task force meeting will take place Saturday afternoon in Geneva to assess whether the temporary truce is being respected, he said.
The cessation of hostilities is the most hopeful sign in years in the nation that's been torn by civil war. At least 250,000 people have died and at least 1 million people have fled the nation.
"The full implementation of this resolution -- including unimpeded and sustainable humanitarian deliveries -- is our best chance to reduce the brutal violence in Syria. What matters now are not the words of the resolution but whether it will make real changes on the ground and reduce the suffering of the Syrian people," U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said in a written statement.
Earlier Friday, the Security Council voted unanimously in favor of a resolution backing the halt in fighting and asking for all parties to abide by the terms of the cessation. Meanwhile, a main Syrian opposition group said it will respect the two-week truce that starts with the cessation of hostilities but it warned the government and Russia not to target it under a pretense of attacking internationally recognized terror groups like ISIS.
The rebel High Negotiations Committee said Friday that 97 factions agreed to abide by the deal, but it warned the Syrian regime and one of its major foreign supporters, Russia, not to attack the factions under a pretense of targeting internationally recognized terror groups in the region, such as ISIS and the al Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front.
"It should not be possible for the regime and its allies to exploit the ... truce by continuing hostilities against moderate opposition factions under the excuse of fighting terrorism," the panel said in a published statement Friday. The two-week truce does not apply to "terrorist organizations designated by the U.N. Security Council," including ISIS and al-Nusra. Military operations against them are expected to continue. This is an important detail because there are more than 160 armed factions on the battlefield.
Meanwhile, United Nations Special Envoy to Syria Staffan De Mistura said Friday he planned to resume the intra-Syrian peace talks on Monday, assuming the cessation of hostilities holds. Included will be representatives of the Syrian government and opposition groups, he said.
The agreement calls for the Syrian regime and the opposition fighters to halt attacks and implement a U.N. "road map" for peace. Under the terms, Russia, whose warplanes have targeted non-ISIS and non-al Qaeda Syrian opposition groups, will halt those airstrikes. Both sides agree to allow humanitarian agencies access to the territories they hold, and to refrain from taking territory held by the other side. The "road map" is U.N. Security Council Resolution 2254, which the council adopted unanimously in December.
As Friday's deadline approached, regime and Russian airstrikes continued to pound different parts of the country.
On Friday, Russian President Vladimir Putin said the truce would be a difficult and "contradictive" process. "But there's no alternative to a peaceful settlement of the conflict," Putin told a meeting of members of the Russian federal security service, the FSB. "All conditions have to be created for the soonest end of the bloodshed and for an inter-Syrian political dialogue in the future with participation of all constructive political forces."
Civil war has raged over Syria for five years, since protests during the hopeful days of the Arab Spring were brutally repressed. More than a quarter of a million people have died so far. Half the country's population has been uprooted and has fled. People in some Syrian cities are starving. More than a million people entered Europe without the required papers last year -- most of them, by far, Syrians. The European Union's commitment to the free, borderless movement of people is in danger of collapse.
Updated 0101 GMT (0901 HKT) February 12, 2016
(CNN) Major world powers have agreed to a "cessation of hostilities" and to the delivery of immediate aid in Syria, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry announced early Friday.
He spoke in Munich, Germany, where top diplomats from more than a dozen countries, including the United States and Russia, met to hammer out a deal.
"I'm pleased to say that as a result today in Munich, we believe we have made progress on both the humanitarian front and the cessation of hostilities front, and these two fronts, this progress, has the potential -- fully implemented, fully followed through on -- to be able to change the daily lives of the Syrian people," Kerry said.
"First, we have agreed to accelerate and expand the delivery of humanitarian aid beginning immediately," he told reporters.
"Second, we have agreed to implement a nationwide cessation of hostilities to begin in a target of one week's time. That's ambitious, but everybody is determined to move as rapidly as possible to try to achieve this."
CNN Global Affairs Correspondent Elise Labott described the move as both significant and tenuous. She noted the importance of Kerry's use of the phrase "cessation of hostilities," as opposed to the word ceasefire.
"This is an incremental step-by-step process, the first building block here, the humanitarian aid," said CNN International Diplomatic Editor Nic Robertson.
"That cessation that comes begets, possibly, better stronger talks (and) ultimately ... maybe a ceasefire," he said.
'Actions on the ground'
Any potential ceasefire would not apply to terrorist organizations operating in Syria. And Kerry stressed that the longer the conflict persists there, the more extremists have to gain.
Kerry also said that the real test of talks will be whether all the parties involved honor their commitments and implement them in reality. Ending the five-year civil war will require a plan for a political transition, he said.
The Syrian uprising began in March 2011. At least 250,000 people have died and 12 million displaced because of the conflict, according to the United Nations.
"What we have here are words on paper. What we need to see in the next few days are actions on the ground," Kerry told reporters.
His point was echoed by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who spoke at the same news conference in Munich.
Lavrov said that a ceasefire would be difficult but characterized what was announced Friday as a "step forward."
"We have a common determination to reduce the suffering of the Syrian people," he said.
COMMENTS (2/22/16): I was going to write something else here, but close inspection of the text of my "prediction" essentially confirms I was right: a ceasefire is indeed being attempted and along the lines of point number 2: "Ending the Syrian Civil War and allowing Assad to remain in power, although likely to be regarded as an unpopular move by some nations, while bolstering the Shi'a government in Iraq with a superior state-of-the-art military, could return the balance of power to the Middle East." This development has occurred much earlier than I anticipated and, despite the words, the situation remains fluid with air strikes still being carried out by Russia and Syria and with ISIS carrying out car bombings in Turkey and Syria.
I stand by what I said: this is the last chance to prevent World War III from happening ... or at least postpone it for a few years. It will be very difficult to achieve this. And, sadly, because it is only February, there is still plenty of time for any ceasefire that may have a chance of holding to be violated by June 2016. If that happens, the Gog scenario will indeed play out. It may even be that this ceasefire will fail NOW. Again, I will repeat that diplomacy apparently will still be possible even in early August 2016, although not as likely to succeed as at an earlier time.
Bashar al-Assad remaining in power will likely result in, at best, a three-year peace. Similar to what happened after the ceasefire was finally implemented that ended the war in Bosnia in September 1995, there could be a lull in hostilities for that long. But a new war erupted in Kosovo two years and five months later in February 1998. NATO only tolerated that conflict for a year. In March 1999, Clinton and NATO carried out the most horrendous air campaign against Serbia inflicted on any country since the Second World War ... and no air strikes carried out since Kosovo 1999 even compares, except possibly the recent and current combined air attacks in Syria by Russia and the United States. To be sure, if this action is halted until 2018 or 2019, the air wars then will be far worse than anything we have seen thus far ... and will eventually lead to the use of nuclear weapons in the Middle East, in Europe, in the Pacific, in the United States, and in Russia.
I say this because the parallels between Syria and Bosnia at this time are very strong ... and if so, then the worst is yet to come when the Middle East becomes the next Kosovo. Clinton originally intended to have the air war against Serbia last until August or September 1999. There was even talk that nuclear weapons might be used in the Kosovo conflict by the US/NATO if the war was still ongoing by July or August. Because of the "accidental" bombing of the Chinese embassy in Belgrade, and dangerous threats of World War III being uttered in Russia, the air war stopped on June 11 and a sudden and unexpected ceasefire was agreed and implemented.
But so much for the current speculation. First a comprehensive peace has to be hashed out in Syria and the adjacent regions affected (Turkey and Iraq). And it looks very much like Russia and Syria intend to continue the air attacks on civilians, and ISIS likewise intends to continue carving out its caliphate of terror and horror. If efforts for peace fail, World War III will be coming to us by August 2016 ... or maybe as little as 6 days from now (February 28).

Global Reign Of Terror
Base 7 dating: August 2016 to July 2018.
NEW PREDICTION: 7/19/16 -- This may have already begun in Turkey, Iraq, Malaysia, France, and the United States. Originally this was to be posted as a "prediction within a prediction" concerning the lynching murder by a mob of revolutionaries of a female aristocrat, royal, or actress this coming September. It will be out of this "reign of terror" climate such an event may occur. But we shall have to see if the trend of ISIS and ISIS-inspired mega-terrorist attacks begun last month will indeed continue. Some speculation was that they were Ramadan-related, which would make these events limited to June/July. I was so blindsided by that theory that I failed to recall that August 2016 is the base 7 anniversary of August 10, 1792: the second revolution in France (the bloody revolution), the September Massacres, and the Reign of Terror.
So, it appears that World War III has been postponed with a ceasefire (see prediction above) ... albeit, a shaky ceasefire at times. However, in its place may be a period of global terrorism that will be but a prequel to global war and global nuclear war.
The birth of ISIS is only off from the beginning of the first revolution in France (the Revolution of 1789) by three months (April 2013 instead of July 1789). There are 224 (7 x 32) years intervening from the first revolution in France and the ISIS revolution in Syria and Iraq. And, unless this widening revolution is stopped, and the caliphate crushed, it will become a global Reign of Terror. Indeed, as I have already mentioned, it may have become this to some degree in recent weeks. Yet its bloodiest period does not arrive until the 224th anniversary of the second revolution in France (the Revolution of 1792) begun on August 10, 1792. The September Massacres followed, upon and after which no one was safe, and no human life beyond the gravest humilations and horrors imaginable.
August 1792 through July 1794 marked the bloodiest period of the second French Revolution. The same may well be the case in the Middle East ... and possibly worldwide ... from roughly August 2016 through July 2018.

APOCALYPSE: Scores, Possibly Hundreds, of Fragments from Billion-Ton Comet Strike Earth
NEW PREDICTION: 9/10/13 -- Base 7 dating: August 2016.
There could be as many as 3,275 Tunguska events in two days if an event similar to one on August 12, 1883 happens again ... with a vastly different outcome.
The space rock exploded in the air 620 miles (1,000km) off the coast of Brazil
POPE FRANCIS, IGNIS ARDENS: "FIRE FROM THE SKY"
|The Vatican included nine antipopes in the list of St. Malachy's mottos of future Popes. Those nine do not belong in that list. If we are to take Malachy seriously, therefore, Pope Francis is pope number 103, not pope 112. Thus, rather than Petrus romanus ("Peter of Rome"), Francis becomes Ignis ardens ("Burning Fire"). Since Francis became the pope, sightings of fireballs, meteors, and asteroids have been on the increase. The "Burning Fire," it would appear, will be fire from the sky. Also, with World War III potentially only months away, we may find the motto will be most applicable in yet another way.|

NEW PREDICTION: 10/16/13 -- A major eruption of Mount Vesuvius in the future is certain ... and it will be massive. It may well happen in August 2016 or December 2016, which, using this system, should be considered as uncomfortably close. This may be the worst eruption of Vesuvius since either 79 AD or 1631 AD, the two worst eruptions in history and sharing the same base 7 timeline. If it occurs during daylight, it will turn the affected region into a heavy darkness. Earthquakes may occur every five or ten minutes before the dreadful lava and ash flow begins, killing between 6,000 and 16,000 people.
Pompeii and Herculaneum may soon be buried again.

Deadlier Strain of
Ebola or Other Plague Appears in
the United States; Possible Biological Attack
A.A. Allen (July 1954) ~
NEW PREDICTION: 10/26/14 -- I believe the current ebola epidemic is linked to the outbreak I projected would appear in February 2013, appearing instead a year later in February 2014. It is impossible to know at this time whether the current epidemic of ebola in West Africa will grow worse and become a real pandemic (rather than what are now a few isolated cases in Spain, the United States, and elsewhere) or will be contained and burn itself out. Projections currently are that it will be under control and erradicated in winter or spring 2015.
The next window of opportunity for a deadly global pandemic does not appear until August 2016. Whether this will be a mutated strain of ebola or something else I do not know. It is hard to believe that if ebola is going to mutate and go airborne, spreading easily from person to person and killing the majority of those infected, that it will happen as late as August 2016. It seems to me that the current outbreak would grow worse sometime in 2015 than do so some two years from now. Then again, if the cases are confined to nations throughout the African continent in 2015, spreading throughout the various countries there, it may not be until 2016 that it mutates into something easily transmitted worldwide.
Either that or else a new (or old) deadly plague awaits us two years from now, perhaps a resurgent pandemic of swine flu or a widespread biological attack. A state of martial law may already be in place somewhere in the United States when this occurs ... one that will quickly become entangled in the military enforcement of mass quarantines nationwide, as depicted in the above movie trailer for the film Contagion.

Jeremiah 49:24-28 ~
is waxed feeble, and turns herself to flee, and fear has seized
on her: anguish and sorrows have taken her,
as a woman in travail. How is the city of praise not left, the city of my joy! Her young men shall fall in her
streets, and all her men of war shall be cut off in that day, says the Lord of hosts. And I will kindle
a fire in the wall of Damascus, and it shall consume the palaces of Benhadad.
Isaiah 17:1 ~
The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.
NEW PREDICTION: 9/10/13 -- Base 7 dating: August 2016.
The assumption when reading Jeremiah is that Israel will launch a nuclear strike on Damascus, Syria. This is deduced from the statement by the God of Israel that He "will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus." Thus, Israel appears to be the proxy by which He achieves His purpose.
Then again, in Isaiah 17, Damascus is called a "burden." This same word is applied in Revelations to "Babylon, that mighty city" which some believe to be New York City, but others maintain will be London, Paris, or even a future revived city of Babylon in Iraq. The chief city of a country is usually a burden to many nations one of two ways, both involving economies: it is draining the finances of the world due to economic policies that are hurting global markets OR it is causing treasuries of many nations to be emptied in a huge war effort. Thus, Damascus could be nuked, not by Israel, but by Nato with the blessing of the European Union and the United States ... because the war begun by Bashar al-Assad has become a burden to the world's economy.
However, what if Jeremiah 49 is to be taken literally? Is it possible that Damascus is destroyed by an asteroid or comet fragment ... directly by the hand of God, as it were? It is strange that a base 7 event portends a possible fragmentation of a comet, also in August 2016, with many small and large pieces striking various parts of the planet. Perhaps one of these will strike Damascus.
If not, however, we must acknowlewdge that if this event should occur it will be a nuclear attack ... by Israel or Nato.
