This is such a book, first released one year ago in October 2012 and reissued now just when it seems a thawing of 33 years of enmity has begun between the United States and the Islamic Republic of Iran. This last chance at peace was anticipated in its pages. Will the birth of hope for that peace dissolve at last its lurking shadow of horror: a war foreseen in the utterances of prophets too horrible to fulfill?
All eyes today look to US and NATO forces eventually finding either excuse or just cause to fully enter the bloody quagmire of civil war in Syria, yet the visions of the 16th-century Seer, Nostradamus warn that Syria is not even the main event. Iran is next and in all of world-renowned prophecy expert John Hogue’s 30 years of studying Nostradamus’ prophecies, he has rarely seen so many clear inferences and warnings that oncoming war is at hand. Nostradamus’ astrology has dated it for the mid-decade. The prophet’s verses of foresight describe the future naval clashes in the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz called by their 16th-century names. The Iranian flag’s abstract red tulip symbolizing Islamic martyrdom is described as is the US Navy Jack belonging perhaps to a fleet that will be “melted and sunk” and sent to the bottom of the “Arabian” (Persian) Gulf.
Is it the US Navy? Is it the Iranian navy of “Ishmaelites” charging out of bases along the shores of “Carmania”, the 16th-century name gives describing for the Iranian coastline of the hotly contested Strait of Hormuz through which 20 percent of all the world’s oil exports pass?
If there is war with Iran, oil production and transport will be disrupted. If the fiat global economy has not already busted its own balloons of phony growth before 2016, Nostradamus forecasts the use of a new and terrible weapon—the “Money Weapon”—to render valueless Armageddon’s checkbook.
No one reading this right now, no one living on this planet, will be immune to the consequences of this war. See how Nostradamus has nearly come into the clear with his cryptic visions hinting openly about what lurks in the shadows of the Future’s possibilities so that we can forestall this greatest of Middle Eastern wars from happening in the eleventh hour with the light of peace and human intelligence.
