Unrest and Riots Break Out in London - Base 7 dating: April 2016.

Attempted Assassination of U.S. President Barack Obama - Base 7 dating: March 2016.

Notes (11.26.14): The last serious and injurious assassination attempt on the life of a US president occurred in March 1981 when John Hinckley shot then-president Ronald Reagan, also critically wounding press secretary James Brady. The assassin of Abraham Lincoln in April 1865 was a stage actor named John Wilkes Booth. Thus, the name "John" may or may not be key. John F. Kennedy was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald (president named "John") in November 1963. That base 7 vector for November 2012 has long ago passed.

Queen Elizabeth Dies In Her Sleep, Prince Charles Becomes King - Base 7 dating: March 2016.

Who Is the Next Jayne Mansfield? Sexy Actress or Pop Singer is Brained or Decapitated in Terrible Accident - Base 7 dating: March 2016.

Notes (11.26.14): Jayne Mansfield (1967); Selena (1995) ... this was a murder; Linda Lovelace, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes (2002); Natasha Richardson (2009) ... one idea, Jayne's daughter, actress Mariska Hargitay, is a dead ringer for her mother. Jayne Mansfield was 34 when she died in June 1967; Mariska Hargitay is 50. Her differing age may protect her. But then again, these days "50 is the new 30."

There will likely be a commercial flight disaster still to come and possibly another test flight accident unless the program is stalled until late 2018 or else 2019.

Erdogan and Putin Warn Israel to Cease Aggressions in Gaza, Lebanon, Golan, Sinai, Iraq, and Syria

 

Turkish President Recep Erdogan and Russian President Vladimir Putin hold joint conference over Israeli actions

 

NEW PREDICTION: 11/20/14 -- It is conceivably possible that at this point, there is simply just another Israeli-Gaza War and perhaps even another in Lebanon due to attacks from Hezbollah. But I suspect Bashar al-Assad or Islamic State (or both) will be creating problems for Israel as well: terrorism from ISIL and missile and rocket attacks against cities like Tel Aviv from Syria. There may even be a large armed incursion of the Golan Heights by Syria's military ... and an attempt to reclaim the territory. Whatever territories are being bombarded by Israel, whether in Lebanon, Gaza, Golan, inside the Syrian border, in the Syriac-Iraqi region now claimed by Islamic State, or the Sinai, will be condemned by many nations for the large loss of life and destruction of property. Imagine the Gaza conflict of a few months ago occurring in all these regions.

In January 2016, Turkish President Recep Erdogan and Russian President Vladimir Putin will hold a joint conference, publically comdemning Israel for these massive air strikes, warning that they may face possible combined military attacks from both Turkey and Russia. Iran and Azerbaijan may also pledge to assist the Turks and Russians. Israel will respond negatively to these threats, reminding Erdogan and Putin about their ability to carry out the dreaded "Samson Option." Not deterred, Putin and Erdogan remind Israel that time is not on their side, and to cease hostilities immediately, making bleak assessments for possible all-out war by spring.

Huge Chemical Attacks in Syria and Iraq; Nato Mulls Invasion

 

Chemical attacks kill thousands in March 2016Iraqi soldiers in chem-bio suits

 

NEW PREDICTION: 9/29/13 -- Base 7 dating: March 2016.

Now finally the US and Nato will find a reason to intervene in Syria's civil war: chemical weapons attacks will spread into Iraq from Syria, killing many thousands. But it will probably take something in addition to that to provoke a US or Nato action, like the nuking of NYC.

U.S. airstrikes hit ISIS inside Syria for first time

By Jim Sciutto, Mariano Castillo and Holly Yan, CNN
September 23, 2014 -- Updated 0313 GMT (1113 HKT)

The U.S. military has begun bombing ISIS terrorists in Syria.USS Winston S. Churchill launches Tomahawk cruise missile into Syria

(CNN) -- The airstrikes Tuesday took place in the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa, a U.S. official told CNN. It's the first strikes against the terror group inside the country since President Barack Obama's announcement this month that he was prepared to expand the American efforts beyond targets in Iraq.

All foreign partners participating in the strikes with the United States are Arab countries, a senior U.S. military official told CNN. Those nations include Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Jordan.

Diplomatic sources told CNN that Qatar was also involved, though it was not clear whether Qatar actually conducted airstrikes itself.

The U.S. and "partner nation forces" began striking ISIS targets using fighters, bombers and Tomahawk missiles, Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said, though he didn't specify a geographic location.

Citing the ongoing operations, Kirby said the Pentagon would not provide additional details immediately. But a U.S. military official said the strikes are meant to target the ability of ISIS to command and control, resupply and train.

Tomahawk missiles launched from the sea initiated the strike, followed by bombers and fighters, a senior U.S. military official told CNN.

The goal with this first move is to have an initial, definitive blow, the official said, describing the pace of the operation as intense.

Most of the spots hits were hard targets, like buildings, a senior U.S. official told CNN.

"This is the punch in the nose to the bully that we talked about on the playground," former Delta Force officer James Reese said. "ISIS is the bully, and we just punched him in the nose."

Until now, ISIS has been able to take over cities and operate in Syria with near impunity. Now, it's coming under attack.

With the airstrikes, the United States enters a new level of engagement in the ongoing Syrian civil war. Obama had resisted U.S. military action in Syria, but as the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq made sweeping advances in both Middle Eastern neighbors, calls for such a step grew. "I have made it clear that we will hunt down terrorists who threaten our country, wherever they are," Obama said in a September 10 speech. "That means I will not hesitate to take action against ISIL in Syria, as well as Iraq. This is a core principle of my presidency: if you threaten America, you will find no safe haven."

The message of the speech was clear -- it was a matter of when, not if -- the United States would carry out airstrikes inside Syria.

A U.S. intelligence official said that while law enforcement is aware the airstrikes against ISIS in Syria could incite a response, there is no evidence to suggest any terrorist strike is in the works against the United States.

Last week, U.S. officials told CNN that the military had everything in place it needed to strike ISIS inside Syria and was awaiting Obama's go-ahead to do so.

For weeks, intelligence and military targeting specialists have been working around the clock on a list of targets, the officials said. It is unlikely that the President reviewed all the targets individuall, but was presented broad guidance with analysis about the risks of bombing inside Syria, as well as the rewards in terms of attacking ISIS.

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel told the House Armed Services Committee last week that he and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey signed off on plans to strike ISIS in Syria.

"CENTCOM's plan includes targeted actions against ISIL safe havens in Syria -- including its command and control, logistics capabilities, and infrastructure," Hagel said last week. "Our actions will not be restrained by a border that exists in name only."

 

 

 

 

U.S. airstrikes begin on ISIS militants in Iraq

By Tom Cohen and Ben Brumfield, CNN

August 8, 2014 -- Updated 1444 GMT (2244 HKT)

Washington (CNN) -- Two U.S. F/A-18 jet fighters bombed artillery of Sunni Islamic extremists in Iraq on Friday, escalating America's military involvement more than two years after President Barack Obama brought home forces from the country. Obama authorized "targeted airstrikes" if needed to protect U.S. personnel from fighters with the Islamic State, formerly known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS. The U.S. military also could use airstrikes to prevent what officials warn could be a genocide of minority groups by the Islamic State fighters. U.S. warplanes patrolling the skies over northern Iraq have a "green light" to go after perceived ISIS threats to the Kurdish capital, Irbil, or to minority populations, said deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes.

Laser-guided bombs

The first strike involved 500-pound laser-guided bombs on a "mobile artillery piece" used by ISIS at about 6:45 a.m. ET Friday, Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said. It came in response to an Islamic State advance this week on what officials call U.S. interests in Iraq's Kurdish region in the north. The militants took towns from the Kurdish fighting force known as the Peshmerga. Before the onslaught, the region had been the most stable in Iraq and a cooperative ally of the United States. U.S. military advisers and consular personnel are stationed in Irbil. The mobile artillery battery hit Friday was based outside Irbil, Kirby said.

In announcing his decision Thursday night, Obama said the militants would get hit "should they move towards the city." Kurdish leaders have been pleading for the United States or NATO to buttress their forces against the Islamic State from the air. The President seems to have heard their appeal. "We do whatever is necessary to protect our people," Obama said, adding, "We support our allies when they're in danger."

Obama: Potential 'genocide'

U.S. airstrikes also could hit the Islamic State if militants continue to endanger the lives of thousands of ethnic Yazidis stranded in mountains by the militants' siege. Obama and other administration officials are using the term "genocide" when referring to the threat to the internal refugees.

Last weekend, ISIS militants raided the Yazidi town of Sinjar in northern Iraq. Yazidis, one of Iraq's smallest minorities, are of Kurdish descent and their religion is considered a pre-Islamic sect that draws from Christianity, Judaism and Zoroastrianism. The Islamic State has executed people who don't share their fanatical interpretation of Sunni Islam and posted videos of their killings to the Internet. "Convert to Islam or die" is the militants' ultimatum to those captured. They also have beheaded victims and placed their heads on spikes to strike terror in the population, a senior administration official said.

Before Obama spoke Thursday night, two U.S. military cargo planes airdropped 5,300 gallons of water and 8,000 meals onto Mount Sinjar, where some Yazidi children had died from dehydration.

British support

The British government said Friday it would support the U.S. humanitarian effort and planned airdrops of its own.

Meanwhile, the United Nations in Iraq was "urgently preparing a humanitarian corridor to allow those in need to flee the areas under threat," said Nickolay Mladenov, the special representative to the U.N. secretary-general. He welcomed the "cooperation between the Government of Iraq, the Kurdistan Regional Government and the international community to help prevent genocide and fight terrorism," according to a U.N. statement.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday repeated the administration's concerns about genocide. The Islamic State's "campaign of terror against the innocent, including the Yazidi and Christian minorities, and its grotesque targeted acts of violence show all the warning signs of genocide," Kerry said Friday during a televised press conference in Kabul, Afghanistan. "The stakes for Iraq's future could not be more clear," and "for anyone who (needs) a wake-up call, this is it."

Concern over U.S. ground troops returning

While he authorized the airstrikes in response to specific threats, Obama made clear he had no intention of sending in ground forces. "As commander in chief, I will not allow the United States to be dragged into fighting another war in Iraq," the President said. The administration has put the onus on the Iraqi government, which it has pushed to reform. It wants Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's Shiite-dominated regime replaced by an ethnically more inclusive government. Already, the Obama administration is rapidly funneling weapons to Iraqi forces. Factories in the United States are operating seven days a week to produce them, a senior administration official said.

But two Republican senators said in a statement that the President's actions do not go far enough. And the United States should not wait on Iraq to pull together before Washington takes action. Sens. John McCain of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina want to see U.S. forces take the fight to the Islamic State. "It should include U.S. airstrikes against ISIS leaders, forces, and positions both in Iraq and Syria," their statement read.

Iraqi forces fight back

The Iraqi air force bombed a number of Islamic State targets on Thursday night, said Qubad Talabani, deputy prime minister of the Kurdish regional government. He told CNN the strikes killed at least two of the group's emirs.

At this point, the United States has 245 military personnel in Iraq, 90 of them advisers sent in recent weeks to coordinate with Iraqi and Kurdish military officials in response to the ISIS rampage. The USS George H.W. Bush and other Navy ships also are in the region, and the FA/18s in Friday's initial strike came from the aircraft carrier.

The Islamic State fighters have captured armored vehicles and other military hardware from Iraqi forces in a lightning sweep through the north earlier this year. The militant group's name, Islamic State, reflects its goal to establish a Sunni caliphate stretching from Syria to Baghdad. After establishing the religious state, the group envisions expanding it throughout the world, and analysts warn of Americans and Europeans with the Islamic State returning home at some point to bring the battle.

 

 

COMMENTS (10/23/14): Use of chemical weapons in Syria in March 2013 and August 2013 has been confirmed and documented. But the widespread use of chemical weapons resulting in the deaths of "many thousands" has not. Also, chemical weapons attacks have not yet occurred in Iraq.

Nevertheless, the invasions and warfare conducted by Islamic State engaged in both Syria and Iraq, along with a recent attack on northern Iraq by Assad's government forces on civilian and IS targets, does give us a glimpse of how this predicted scenario might eventually lead to large scale chemical attacks in both countries.

Also, the NATO alliance itself has yet to actually take full and official military action against either the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq or against the Assad regime in Damascus. Such action has been "mulled" over, but no commitment of any kind as of yet. However, the US coalition against IS in Iraq does include the active participation of six NATO allies: Canada, the UK, France, Denmark, the Netherlands, and Belgium. Germany was planning to join the coalition, then backed out. Turkey likewise is resisting involvement. NATO members Italy and Spain have only, thus far, sent military advisors and are not actively involved in the air campaign at this time.

As for Syria, only the United States is conducting an air war against the IS in that country, with the military air support of five Arab states.

Thus, technically, what is occurring at best is a very partial, unofficial NATO military action in Iraq, and a unilateral US air war in Syria.

Once again to summarize: This prediction anticipates 1) catastrophic use of chemical weapons in Iraq and Syria resulting in thousands of deaths and 2) calls for full NATO military action in both Iraq and Syria. At best this prediction is only very partially fulfilled.
