Though historic events like the spread of an “Occupy” American revolution and a looming dip back into deep Recession because of inescapable Greek and Italian defaults on their debts do loom, the most pressing issue in the world crying for a prophetic comment is the deepening tensions between the US and Israel against Iran.
US Neo-Cons cackle and Israeli sabers rattle to the Netanyahu government drum beat for an imminent attack on Iran. The papers, like the Daily Telegraph in the UK pontificate bellicose bets on the Netanyahu government blasting of Iranian nuclear facilities before Christmas. Israel is a regional nuclear power quite capable and willing to preempt an end to an enemy’s infant nuclear program. They have done it before. Israel took out Saddam Hussein’s nuclear aspirations in a breathtaking, surprise attack. I wrote the following passage about it for my book Nostradamus: The War with Iran:
It was upon a lazy, sun basted late afternoon, a slow day, a Sunday, June 1981, that a skeleton crew of drowsy Iraqi security guards at Saddam Hussein’s Osirak Nuclear Reactor station a few miles north of Baghdad, might feel the first stirring of furnace desert air murmuring reports of distant thunders out of the West. It is not known if any guards or heat lulled crews of SAM missile or Triple-A anti-aircraft batteries dotting Osirak cared to look up and singe their retinas gazing past the late afternoon sun’s glare at its source. Anyway, it was the first year of the Iran-Iraq War. Air attacks came from the east. Radar officers phoned in no report. Somebody forgot to switch on the radars that day. If the Iraqi guards and gunners had turned around and faced the late afternoon glare they might have seen glinting spear points without misty shafts of contrails rise to 7,000 feet and suddenly bear down, quickening upon them, shot forward by jet engines at an attack speed of 600 knots.
It was at that moment that [Israeli Air Force] pilots began their attack run and beheld the stout, circular domed mass [of the French built Osirak nuclear reactor]…One F-16 after another swooped down on the undefended bulk… each releasing their two 2,000 pound Mark-84 Time-Delayed bombs at five-second intervals. [Osirak] shuttered and fell in on itself devoured in the mouth of great and thundering fireballs. Ten Iraqi guards and one attending French nuclear scientist shared the immolation. [The] Israeli force climbed unscathed and quickly to 40,000 feet heading west beyond the reach of uncoordinated salvos of Iraqi anti-aircraft fire lashing the empty sky with wildly whipping tracer lines of beaded flame.
Nostradamus: The War with Iran
Chapter Two: A RAYPOZ to Reflect
What is missing in the current threat of “imminent” attack by Israel? Something as loudly silent as can be amidst all the US NeoCon-niption fits to holler for war because of a yellow-caked up claim reminiscent of a false flag of threat that hoodwinked an American congress and people to invade Iraq that Iran tried to assassinate the Saudi Arabian ambassador in Washington DC.
What is missing is not only loud with silence. The obvious is as absent as the empty sky widely filmed and Western-press promoted the other week as backdrop to a test firing of an Israeli regional ballistic missile. The hallow of the obvious reverberated with IAF aircraft on training bomb runs for Iran over the Mediterranean. The missing reality is something pushed against the wall and occulted by Netanyahu masquerading as the regional Winston Churchill of his day, trying to forestall the rise of Adolf Ahmadinejad Hitlerian Iran with the din of preemptive strike threats. The ballistic missile and bunker busting bluster is thick and Gafilta-fishy to those who can see what is missing in this most recently promoted picture of imminent war. If you can see what is glaringly missing then you, like me, will know exactly why there will be absolutely no attack on Iran come Christmas or any time soon.
What is missing is surprise.
The day Israel strikes Iran, the world will be caught completely off-guard be it months or several years from now.
It might happen when certain astrological windows for war open, as foreseen by Nostradamus, in 2015 and 2016, when he says, “Saturn and Mars are equally fiery.” In layman’s terms, war would suddenly erupt when the planet of the grim reaper of bad karma and the planet of war are both in fire signs, or better, in the same fire sign.
Century 4 Quatrain 67 reads:
L’an que Saturne & Mars esgaux combust,
L’air fort seiché, longue traiection:
Par feux secrets, d’ardeur grand lieu adust
Peu pluye, vent chault, guerres, incursions.
In the Year Saturn and Mars are equally fiery,
The air is very dry, a long comet:
From hidden fires a great place burns with heat,
Little rain, hot wind, wars and raids.
Nostradamus’ vision of a war against Persia (Iran) might envision a comet-like missile fall out of the dry desert skies. A time when great droughts speed the desertification of the Middle Eastern and Central Asian lands. The hidden fires of radiological isotopes for building atomic bombs secreted away in hidden Iranian installations suddenly burn with missile-issued heat lighting up the next great Persian Gulf War and subsequent Iranian terrorist reprisal raids on Israeli and American targets worldwide.
If this quatrain is indeed a vision of the long threatened and long awaited Israeli attack on Iran, there will be no bluster, no threats, no warning. Like the attack on Osirak, it will come with stealth penetrating Iran’s heavily defended airspace with no advanced, chest thumped out warning, like that that bellows from Netanyahu today.
If Nostradamus’ astrology in the future is forecasting the time of a complete surprise attack, it could initially happen around February and March of 2015 when Mars (god of war) is in Aries (the war sign) and Saturn (karmic black as an Ayatollah’s turban) is in the sign of the missile firing archer (Sagittarius). Otherwise, it happens sometime around September through October of 2016 when both planets of war and karmic retribution are in Sagittarius.
What is really going on these days behind all this smoke without a gun of “exposed” Iran plots? Yes, we hear of rumors of war as Christ would say, about a plot foiled to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador in the heart of Washington DC by Iranian-American operatives working with the Iranian Revolutionary Guards in Teheran. Where is the hard evidence? Is this going to become a lot of “Hebrew said Shia said” about the improvable?”
Give the world a Cuban Missile Crisis moment, Mr. Netanyahu. Adonai up your Adlai Stevenson at the UN and pull out poster sized photos of Soviet missiles in Cuba. Let unquestionable evidence place Iranian-American cells in cahoots with Teheran run Revolutionary Guard leaders before you bluster bombing Iranian nuclear installations, irradiating millions.
Where there is smoke there is not always “fire”. Rather, there is a smoke screen for the real target of Israeli threats. There is a shield of myth making. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is presuming that he is Winston Churchill threatening to preempt the Iranian Hitler Regime, but I see someone else imitated for a completely different goal.
Netanyahu is playing Kim Jong Il’s game of war bluff.
The North Korean dictator repeatedly threatens to expand his nuclear weapons program. He test fires his scud missiles. He torpedoes South Korean naval corvettes and fires a few hundred artillery shells at South Korean fishing villages. Heck, he even may have enacted underground tests of a crude nuke from time to time, just to scare everyone outside of North Korea into thinking he has at last lost his marbles. Kim Jong’s mental illness may let slip a million man army on a suicidal offensive stampeding into South Korea to resume a war that has been on hold since an uneasy armistice signed by North Korea with the US and United Nations forces protecting South Korea since 1953.
Once Kim has scared the kimchee out of everyone in the Northwestern Pacific region, Kim backs off into silence. The No Dong scud missiles are zipped up and put away in their bunkers. A Pyongyang peace offering ensues. The K.J. Il tantrum is eventually followed by a quiet time out and the offering to negotiate a reduction of his nuclear armaments. This tantrum and talk game sometimes gets concessions like food aid for his starving people, etc., better cognac at $300.00 a bottle for the “Dear” Dr. Evil “Leader”.
This game of mad man bluff really works! Other leaders are learning the Kim Jong mental illness ploy.
Netanyahu is not bombing Iran right now or any time soon. He is targeting his allies with the threat of the unthinkable: a war with Iran. It would collapse the oil market. It would send the world into a depression and piss off one out of six human beings who happen to be Muslim into sending their sons to join a jihad against the West. Thousands of Iranians killed and irradiated from reactor meltdowns stemming from a brazenly aggressive surprise jet and missile barrage of the Israeli Air Force on Iran would be the catalyst.
Unless Netanyahu “hasn’t” actually gone as goofy as Kim Jong Il pretends, his goal with all this apocalyptic war talk is a new regimen of crushing economic sanctions from the world community that will financially hobble Iran from continuing its presumed nuclear weapons program.
Netanyahu knows, as I know and have been predicting for years, that sanctions can eventually work to end nuclear weapons proliferation in Iran. Sanctions might even take down the Iranian regime. Ahmadinejad’s government cannot long politically survive a few more years of economic hardship because of sanctions already in place.
Netanyahu wants to increase the pain. Ahmadinejad actually needs Israel to strike Iran so he can unite his people. The last thing Netanyahu wants is handing Ahmadinejad and Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, a cause rallying their people to a fever pitch of patriotic blindness and thus help them forget their economic woes and growing differences with the Islamic fundamentalist regime.
I predict this war with Iran is not imminent.
What if I am wrong, you ask?
If I were misreading the men and their signs in prophecy, if a war was to happen now or early next year, it would be a political and military disaster for Israel. It would be an economic disaster for the world, especially for the United States, their most powerful ally. A global call for sanctions on Israel might follow and the US might let it happen if unilateral Israeli attacks on Iran sabotaged the global economic recovery.
What profit would Israel gain?
The damage done to the Iranian nuclear aspirations would only delay the program’s progress for two years. If Iran had no aspirations before the attack to actually “make” a bomb – just to know how to make them if necessary – they will definitely seek nuclear war capability the second Israeli warheads bunker bust the first Iranian underground uranium processing factory before this Christmas Eve or early in 2012. Two years later, Iran would have atomic bombs by 2014 — a year before Nostradamus’ first of two astrological time windows for war: in 2015 and 2016.
Between now and 2014, harder economic sanctions will do more to end the threat of Iranian jihadist nuclear aspirations and not Israeli missiles falling out of the skies to set alight “hidden fires” burning with high explosive, then radioactive, then politically suicidal “heat”.

Predictions for 2012
My article postings are only coming once a week because I am currently writing on average 4,500 words a day in a kind of writer’s “blitzkrieg” to get this new almanac of prophecies into the world for release in December. In the chapter entitled “Hot Crises in a Cold Depression”, I will expand on the theme of war with Iran being imminent and explain how though it seems war is almost inevitable I do not think it is likely next year for reasons I will explain in detail in the new book. What is planned for 2012 is a rearranging of US, NATO and Gulf Arab armed forces that will rename the “Persian” Gulf into the “Arabian Gulf” as Nostradamus foresaw it would be called when his foreseen war is presciently scheduled to erupt in 2015-2016.
