Huge Volcanic Eruption in Japan and Great Tokyo Earthquake Kills Thousands, Possibly Millions
NEW PREDICTION: 11/26/14 -- DESCRIPTION: 8/24/15: Base 7 dating: January 2016 or March 2018.
There are two base 7 datings for this event: January 2016 or March 2018; the 2018 dating has significantly more danger attached to it. If Edgar Cayce's vision of most of Japan going into the sea is ever going to happen due to natural earth changes events (and not due to an extraordinary cosmic agent like Planet X), it will require more than a large earthquake and tsunami to accomplish this feat.
Scientists think they now have encountered what might be the cause (although they certainly have not applied it to Cayce's prophecy, obviously). According to one of a number of articles released last fall, scientists at Kobe University believe a gigantic volcanic eruption could kill 95 per cent of Japan's 127 million people within the next 100 years ... Experts analysing the eruption patterns of volcanoes on the island nation say it is 'not an overstatement' to predict that a natural disaster could leave the country 'extinct'. Despite the "within 100 years" estimate, most of these seismologists concur that their expectation of such a horrific natural event occuring is much more fearful and immediate, even "at any moment."
The January 2016 vector is based on the Kobe Earthquake precedent from January 1995, twenty-one (3 x 7) years ago, which killed 6,400 people. The March 2018 vector, of course, is based on the March 2011 Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami, what will be seven years earlier by 2018, which killed 15,891 and injured 6,152, with another 2,584 missing ... an event that was accurately predicted on this website ... even the 9.0 magnitude was correct. At that time, and for the next six weeks, there were between 20,000 and 30,000 views on this site every single day. Not since 9/11 in 2001 and the death of Pope John Paul II in 2005 had there been so much traffic, nor has there been ever since.
If there is an earthquake in January 2016, it will likely not be as large as the 2011 event, possibly a magnitude 7.0 but certainly not above an 8.0. Most likely closer to 7.0. Of course, if any of the volcanoes are set off, especially the Kyushu Volcano, this could quickly turn into an apocalyptic natural disaster .. one perhaps never before seen.
earthquake strikes off Japan
Updated 0323 GMT (1123 HKT) November 22, 2016
(CNN) Aftershocks could continue to shake the Japanese coast for days, the United States Geological Survey says, after a 6.9-magnitude earthquake struck off Honshu early Tuesday morning.
Three people had been reported injured as a result of the quake, police told CNN, while a tsunami advisory was still in effect for Japan's Fukushima and Miyagi Prefectures at 11 a.m. local time on Tuesday.
The earthquake struck in the same area as the devastating 9.0-magnitude earthquake in 2011 -- one of the worst ever to hit Japan -- which killed more than 20,000 people and triggered a meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.
But USGS geophysicist Jessica Turner told CNN the earthquake had been much smaller than the disaster five years ago.
"It is much smaller in magnitude and energy release than the 9.0-magnitude that occurred in March of 2011 ... we can expect to see aftershocks for the next several days (but) it's hard to predict," she said.
Tuesday's quake struck 37 kilometers (23 miles) east-southeast of Namie at a depth of 11.4 kilometers (7 miles). Eight aftershocks of at least magnitude 5.4 were recorded within five hours of the initial quake.
Tsunami warnings were immediately issued for waves of 1 to 3 meters (3 to 10 feet), and soon after some were spotted off the coast, according to the Japanese Meteorological Agency.
Of prime concern was the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.
A cooling pump system was temporarily stopped after the quake but soon resumed operation, a spokesman for the Tokyo Electric Power Company Inc. (TEPCO) told CNN. No abnormalities or change in radiation levels were reported.
University of Sydney Disaster Risk Management Expert Dale Dominey-Howes told CNN Tuesday's earthquake would be devastating for the mental health of survivors still recovering from the 2011 event.
"The simple reality is that the survivors from 2011 haven't gone back to normal, they're basically living as displaced people in camps in various locations around central Japan," he said.
Small tsunamis reach Japan
Video on social media from Onahama, on the coast of Fukushima Prefecture, featured sounds of sirens in response to the tsunami warning.
Images of the port showed waves that the broadcaster described as "backwash" that happens before a tsunami hits shore.
The first tsunami wave reached the coast at Iwaki-shi in Fukushima Prefecture at 6:29 a.m. local time. The largest, a 1.4-meter tsunami, was observed in Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture, at 8:03 a.m. according to Japanese broadcaster NHK.
NHK urged the public to evacuate, cautioning that even if waves appear low in the ocean they can rise as they reach shore. The broadcaster reminded people to dress warmly in the cold rain and urged them to help others leave."Please do not think that you are safe. Please evacuate to high grounds," the network said. "Please think about the worst-case scenario and evacuate right away."
Earthquake felt in Tokyo
The tremors could be felt as far Tokyo, where American businessman Jonathan Swanson was having breakfast in a hotel and catching up on e-mail. "Suddenly I felt disoriented," he told CNN's Michael Holmes.
Doors started to swing on cabinets and sliding doors started to move. He realized what was happening."You could feel the building really swaying back and forth for at least a couple of minutes. It was pretty scary."
Swanson is from San Francisco and has felt his share of tremors over the years.
"But this was significantly bigger than anything I felt in San Francisco ... this was just more extended. The swaying was significantly more than I'd ever felt."
COMMENTS (11/21/16): I doubt the momentum since April is going to stop. If 2011 is the sign of things yet to come, March 2018, possibly late 2017, will see the event that may destroy Tokyo and possibly submerge the island of Japan as prophesied by Edgar Cayce. This quake is a continuation of the prediction that resulted in the April 2016 quake.
crews seek survivors of 2nd Japanese quake; at least 19
By Don Melvin, Greg Botelho, Ray Sanchez and Yoko Wakatsuki, CNN
Updated 0417 GMT (1117 HKT) April 16, 2016
Tokyo, Japan (CNN) Rescue crews scrambled through rubble Saturday in a race against time for survivors of a magnitude-7.0 earthquake that struck Japan's Kyushu Island, the same region rattled by a 6.2 quake two days earlier. The death toll in the Kyushu earthquake rose to 19 people, according to Kumamoto Prefecture's disaster management office.
The earthquake toppled buildings and shredded structures into pile of debris. At least 23 people were buried inside buildings, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said. TV Asahi showed crews crawling over a collapsed roof in an attempt to find an elderly couple. An 80-year-old man was pulled from the rubble, TV Asahi said.
The tremors appear to have caused extensive damage, overturning cars, splitting roads and triggering a landslide as shown by TV Asahi footage. The area was rocked by as many as 165 aftershocks, some of them as strong as magnitude-5.3 struck in the hours after the quake. Television images showed mostly desolate streets, shards of broken glass on the streets and people huddled outside.
Japan's Fire and Disaster Management Agency said 7,262 people have sought shelter at 375 centers since Friday in Kumamoto Prefecture. Suga said 20,000 self-defense forces are being deployed to the region for rescue efforts.
Japan's "Ring of Fire"
The U.S. Geological Survey reported that the latest quake struck just west-southwest of Kumamoto-shi and about 8 miles south-southeast of Ueki, the epicenter of the late Thursday tremor that left nine dead.
"No question, this is a large and very important earthquake," said Doug Given, a geophysicist with the USGS. "And it will do a lot of damage." Given noted: "The four islands of Japan are on the edge of what's traditionally been known as the 'Ring of Fire'" -- a stretch along parts of the Pacific Ocean prone to volcanoes and earthquakes.
Victor Sardina, a geophysicist in Honolulu, Hawaii, told CNN that the latest quake was about 30 times more powerful than Thursday's deadly tremor. He predicted "severe, serious implications in terms of damage and human losses."
The shallow depth of the quake -- about 10 kilometers, or 6 miles -- and the densely populated area where it struck could prove to be devastating, according to experts.
The quake prompted the Japan Meteorological Agency to issue a tsunami advisory for coastal regions of Japan on the Ariake Sea and Yatsushiro Sea around 2 a.m. Saturday (1 p.m. ET Friday). The agency subsequently lifted all tsunami warnings and advisories.
Japanese media reported a small scale eruption of Mt. Aso around 8:30 a.m. local time Saturday. It was unclear whether the eruption occurred in relation to the earthquake, according to the Japan's meteorological agency.
'Buildings were swaying and cracking'
"This looks like it's going to be a very damaging earthquake. I think we can expect that this is going to be far worse" than Thursday's tremor, said Tom Jordan, director of the Southern California Earthquake Center.
In short video posted to Instagram, people standing in the parking lot of a 7-Eleven in Kumamoto let out screams following an aftershock.
Journalist Mike Firn in Tokyo told CNN he felt the trembles in a building some 900 kilometers, or more than 550 miles away from the epicenter. "The building started shaking," he said. "It was swaying quite strongly for over a minute. ... Buildings were swaying and cracking."
The latest tremor suggests that the earthquake on Thursday was a foreshock, though USGS expert cautioned "that's not to say that the Earth can't produce a bigger earthquake still to follow. But statistically, it's more likely that this latest event will be followed by aftershocks, which are all smaller."
Prime Minister on the way to the site
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will visit the earthquake-hit area in Kumamoto prefecture later Saturday, he said at a meeting at emergency response headquarters in Tokyo. "I would like to see the site with my own eyes and hear from the victims directly," Abe said. Search crews were continuing to dig through rubble looking for other people trapped under collapsed buildings.
The Thursday quake struck near Ueki, the U.S. Geological Survey said. Dozens of smaller aftershocks followed. "The ground shook for about 20 seconds before the 6.2-magnitude quake stopped," witness Lim Ting Jie had said.
Two deaths occurred in Mashiki, the Kumamoto prefecture office said. One person died in a collapsed house, and the other died in a fire caused by the quake. Journalist Mike Fern told CNN that scores of buildings had either collapsed or caught fire, while the tremors triggered landslides, tore up roads and in one case, derailed a bullet train. Nearly 800 people were injured, 50 severely. The prefecture office said 44,449 people had been evacuated.
Baby pulled from rubble after earlier quake
Japan had already been coping with a previous earthquake on Kyushu island on Thursday. During the search and recovery effort for the first earthquake, rescuers found an 8-month-old baby girl alive in the ruins of a home destroyed by the earlier quake on Japan's Kyushu island.
Rescuers had been told there was a baby inside the collapsed house, but aftershocks from the quake prevented the use of heavy equipment at the site. After six hours after the infant was trapped, she was pulled from the rubble early Friday. "It was miracle she was unharmed," said Hidenori Watanabe, a spokesman for the Kumamoto Higashi fire department.
Fifty rescuers -- wearing dark uniforms and white hard-hats with lights -- scoured the large pile of rubble that just hours before had been a home. The infant's mother and grandmother had managed to escape. The little girl was finally found safe amid the debris in a space under one of the house's pillars, according to Watanabe. This happened in the middle of the night, in an area lit only by spotlights. Carefully, rescuers passed the barefooted baby to one another, before she finally got to crews on the ground and was taken swiftly away.
A high-risk area
The largest recorded quake to hit Japan came on March 11, 2011, when a magnitude-9.0 quake centered 231 miles (372 kilometers) northeast of Tokyo devastated the country. That quake triggered a massive tsunami that swallowed entire communities in eastern Japan. It caused catastrophic meltdowns at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.
The disaster killed about 22,000 people -- almost 20,000 from the initial quake and tsunami, and the rest from health conditions related to the disaster.
Jie said Thursday's quake gave him a new appreciation for life. "This experience has helped me to treasure my family members and relatives even more, and not take what I have and the people who support me for granted."
Japan earthquake kills nine; more aftershocks expected
By Holly Yan and Yoko Wakatsuki, CNN
Updated 2355 GMT (0655 HKT) April 14, 2016
Tokyo (CNN) At least nine people died when an earthquake struck Japan late Thursday, the Kumamoto Prefecture disaster management office said. Search crews scrambled to dig through rubble in southern Japan, looking for people trapped under collapsed buildings.
The magnitude-6.2 quake struck near Ueki, the U.S. Geological Survey said. Dozens of smaller aftershocks followed. "The ground shook for about 20 seconds before the 6.2-magnitude quake stopped," witness Lim Ting Jie said.
Two deaths occurred in Mashiki, the Kumamoto Prefecture office said. One person died in a collapsed house, and the other died in a fire caused by the quake. At least 135 people were hospitalized in Kumamoto, city officials said.
Gen Aoki, director of the Japan Meteorological Agency's earthquake division, warned more aftershocks could occur over the next week. "This is an earthquake that is going to shake for a long time," CNN meteorologist Chad Myers said. That could mean many more building collapses.
"The buildings that were damaged in the original shock have now been redamaged or reshaken," he said. "And all of a sudden you have a cracked building, and it wants to fall down with the second shake."
An estimated 750,000 people felt "violent to severe shaking," Myers said. "The strongest shaking was right where the most people live" in the area, he said.
While the magnitude might not seem extreme, the shallow depth of the quake -- just 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) -- is significant.
"When you have a shallow earthquake, such as this one is, you have the potential for more damage because the shaking is close to the surface," John Bellini of the U.S. Geological Survey said. In addition to destroying 19 houses, the quake hurled items off store shelves and littered streets with rubble.
But there's one bit of good news: The quake was centered mostly under land, not an ocean, meaning it did not spawn a major tsunami ...
COMMENTS (4/16/16): Looks like the 7.0 quake is going to be another Kobe ... and that was a really bad one. As I say in my closing remarks in the text of the prediction: "If there is an earthquake in January 2016, it will likely not be as large as the 2011 event, possibly a magnitude 7.0 but certainly not above an 8.0. Most likely closer to 7.0." The quake comes three months later, in April 2016.
I suppose the question currently has an unknown answer: how bad will the casualties of this second more powerful quake be? And will there be any stronger quakes than 7.0? Probably not, but hard to say. If not than one must watch out for the 2018 vector: the seventh anniversary of the March 2011 Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami. Keep an eye on volcanic activity as well; a volcano did erupt during the 7.0 quake: Mt. Aso. That proves that earthquakes and volcanic eruptions can be linked together ... including in the western United States.
This is a fulfillment that is still developing. But it is at least a PARTIALLY FULFILLED PREDICTION ... I was right at least about this being another event like the 1995 Kobe Earthquake it would appear.

The greater portion of Japan must go into the sea ..."

Unprecedented Flooding or Destruction in Northern Europe
Edgar Cayce ~
A part of northern Europe will disappear in the twinkling of an eye.
NEW PREDICTION: 11/26/14 -- DESCRIPTION: 8/28/15: Base 7 dating: January 2016.
There are conflicting prophecies concerning the fate of northern Europe. Some describe a colossal flood that covers the land on both sides of the North Sea, all the way down to the Alps. Others suggest that northern Europe (specifically Scandinavia and Finland) will either sink like Atlantis or simply blink out of existence for mysterious reasons. According to Edgar Cayce, the fate of northern Europe seems linked in time to the sinking of most of Japan.
Six years ago, when the Norway Spiral appeared, I concluded that the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, which had been fired up at the same exact time as the spiral was sighted, was the cause. I continued to speculate that the power of the LHC would be sufficient to open the gateway to the dimension where the Nephilim race known as the Gibborim have been imprisoned (according to legend, since the time of Alexander the Great).
Here are some excerpts from my article, "THE BLUE LIGHT OVER NORWAY AND STRANGE CREATURES IN OUR MIDST: Is the Time of Androgyne at Hand?," which is still located at Nostradamus NOW:
"As if the LHC is not enough reason to worry, according to letters from a Norwegian politician, one whose identity was verified but kept anonymous for his own personal safety by Project Camelot, what he calls "alien technology" has been in use for a number of years by the Norwegian government in underground bases built to protect select citizens from Planet X ... He claims this strange technology is run by "some kind of blue crystal energy" which is created by "large purple-blue crystals emitting a purple-bluish light."
Once again I must ask, do these Norwegian technicians thoroughly understand the technology they are using? This mysterious blue spiral light did, after all, appear over NORWAY!
How about this brief prophecy from Edgar Cayce: "A part of northern Europe will disappear in the twinkling of an eye."
Note that Cayce says "a part" of northern Europe will disappear quite suddenly. That "part" could largely, or in the main, be the nation of Norway. One can easily imagine Norway going the way of Atlantis under the purple-blue glow of an ancient technology lighting up the night sky, destroying the entire land mass in literally minutes or seconds (the final deluge that swallowed Atlantis was said to last merely an hour) ...
Was the spiralling light in the sky a portal of some type ... a gate? There is a prophecy concerning "the North" where the last of the creatures we shall discuss manage to break through in large numbers ... and it would appear that a few of these creatures have appeared in our space and time already.
Therefore, attend this next ancient prophecy well, for it speaks about "the gates of the North" (and Norway, along with Russia, is certainly one of the best countries to associate with the North), and what will come though the northern portal. Remember, Norway is only across the North Sea from where CERN operates. Also, do not forget that the Norwegians are experimenting with an "alien technology" that was not created by humans.

The "Gates of the North" will be opened and the strength of those peoples which Alexander shut up there will go forth.
The whole earth will be terrified at the sight of them; men will be afraid and flee in terror to hide themselves in
mountains and caves and graves. They will die of fright and very many will be wasted with fear.
There will be no one to bury the bodies.
The tribes which will go forth from the North will eat the flesh of men and will drink the blood of beasts like water.
They will eat unclean serpents, scorpions, and every kind of filthy and abominable beast and reptile which
crawls upon the earth. They will consume the dead bodies of beasts of burden and even womens
abortions. They will slay the young and take them from their mothers and eat them. They will
corrupt the earth and contaminate it. No one will be able to stand against them.
I don't know about you, but these invaders who infiltrate the north gate or portal and cause great fear and terror, consuming the flesh of men, women and children, as well as eating abortions, do not sound at all like human beings. Indeed, they sound more like creatures known collectively as the gibborim [spelling from article is corrected here].
I will now propose the following: every time the HLC has been turned on, something not of our world or our space-time has slipped through. Even if the rift was invisible to human eyes and not as spectacular as the Norway event, it appears things that do not belong here have come though and have been seen and interacted with."
And from the same page, from my article "Two Major Prophecies by Nostradamus and Edgar Cayce Have Been Fulfilled: Is It Now Time to Worry?," the following excerpt (which I think ties the fates of northern Europe and Japan together):
Edgar Cayce, from reading 3976-15 ~
The greater portion of Japan must go into the sea ..."
This is exactly what Edgar Cayce said about Japan. It is not a lot, but it can mean more than one thing.
I draw everyone's attention to the word "must." Why must a large portion of Japan go into the sea? Is this by divine authority? Or does it mean something else?
Also, "The greater portion of Japan..."
Note that Cayce does not say all of Japan goes under the sea, but only a portion of it. What does he mean by "go into the sea?"
We get images of something like the sinking of Atlantis when we read this. Unless more earthquakes and tsunamis are to follow ... so that the "GREATER portion of Japan" is affected.
Tokyo really felt this one, a 7.4 magnitude [aftershock], and there are casualties being reported, although small at this time (three dead, 140 injured). One can see the skyscrapers swaying and a strange blue flash of light on the horizon. It makes me think of the legend of how Atlantis was destroyed in stages, by storm and deluge, but also by their own technology. Tales of strange blue and purple lightning flashes are part of the Atlantean destruction legend. In addition to the huge tsunami that followed the initial March earthquake, the explosions at the four nuclear power plants, their partial meltdowns, radiation leakages, and poisoning of food and water, rolling blackouts, and more terrifying quakes all contribute to a truly apocalyptic picture of an island nation going to its destruction in stages like Atlantis.
Natural disaster, technological Atlantean catastrophe, or supernatural beings invading through an interdimensional rift? Or all three? The base 7 system suggests that a part of northern Europe (or possibly only Norway?) and the greater part of Japan both may cease to exist in the very near future. The first pending window of opportunity can be as early as January 2016 with a second one (for Japan) as late as March 2018. Of course if the fates of Japan and Norway are linked, then March 2018 may be applicable to northern Europe as well.

Thousands Die During Massive Earthquake in Morocco
NEW PREDICTION: 11/26/14 -- DESCRIPTION: 2/18/16: Base 7 dating: January 2016.
This is a late post since January has already come and gone. But a lot of times in the past earthquake projections have been late by three or four months; once one was late by 18 months. Also, it works the other way, and they can be anywhere from a few months to a year early. That is much more rare though. If it happens, we will know it .. and it will be bad.
earthquake shakes Spanish enclave of Melilla, northern
MADRID, Feb. 22, 2016 (Xinhua) -- The Spanish enclave of Melilla and the northern coast of Morocco were shaken by a magnitude-5.1 earthquake in the early hours of Monday morning, according to Spanish seismological authorities.
The quake, happened at 4:46 a.m. local time (0346 GMT) and had its epicenter in the Alboran sea, is 74 kilometers off the coast of Melilla and the Moroccan city of Alhuecemas. The first quake was followed by two aftershocks measuring 4.6 and 2.0 on the Richter Scale.
The tremor was also felt on the other side of the Mediterranean in Spanish provinces of Malaga, Granada and Almeria. Although emergency services have reported receiving around a dozen calls, authorities have reported the quake, which happened at a depth of 10 kilometers, caused no serious damage and schools would be open as usual.
This quake follows an anterior quake measuring 6.3 on the Richter Scale, which killed a young boy in Morocco and injured more than 20 people in Melilla on January 25.
The area of Melilla and the south-east of Spain is a center of seismic activity as it is on the boundary of the African and Eurasian plates. In May 2011, a quake caused nine deaths in the Spanish city of Lorca.
The 2011 quake, measuring 5.1 on the Richter Scale, was far more destructive given that its epicenter was just 1 km below the surface, whereas Monday's tremor was 10 km underground.
Strong Earthquake Rattles Spain and Morocco
The New York Times
By RAPHAEL MINDER JAN. 25, 2016
A 6.3-magnitude earthquake struck in the Mediterranean early on Monday, causing some material damage in southern Spain and northern Morocco, although no deaths or injuries were reported. The quake occurred at 5:22 a.m. Central European Time, about 100 miles southeast of Gibraltar and about 40 miles north of the Moroccan city of Al Hoceima, where an earthquake left hundreds dead 12 years ago.
The quake hit at a depth of about 20 miles and was registered with a preliminary magnitude of 6.1 by the United States Geological Survey, but that assessment was raised by Spains national geographical institute. The first quake was followed by another, with a magnitude of 5.3, as well as by several smaller aftershocks.
Spanish national television showed panicked people on the streets in coastal cities in southern Spain as well as in Melilla, a Spanish enclave within Morocco.
Television reports showed people surveying cracked building facades, but the regional government of Andalusia, in southern Spain, issued a statement saying that there had been no reports of casualties. The tremors were felt as far inland as Seville, the capital of Andalusia.
In February 2004, a magnitude 6.3 earthquake near Al Hoceima killed 631 people. The last major earthquake in Spain, in 2011, destroyed much of the town of Lorca, in the southeast, and killed nine people.
COMMENTS (2/23/16): Well, once again I wasn't informed of an event I predicted when it happened or soon after. I am of course referring to the 6.3 earthquake that caused damage in both Spain and Morocco on January 25. True, it was still on the top of the page simply as a title: "Thousands Die During Massive Earthquake in Morocco." Yes, I realize thousands did not die. Still, it had been there since I posted it on November 26, 2014 ... 14 months it sat up there, and sat there still afterwards until I brought it here and made a more formal posting of it on February 18, 2016. It qualifies as a PREDICTION PARTIALLY FULFILLED since there were no casualties.
However, it appears the seismic activity that caused the 6.3 magnitude quake last month is still ongoing. Indeed, there is an ALERT in place in Melilla and the northern coast of Morocco at this very moment. So the danger is not over yet and something much worse could still happen.

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

THE HUGE CHEMICAL ATTACKS IN 2 SYRIAN CITIES: WILL NATO NATIONS RETURN?
chemical gas attacks in 2 Syrian cities
By Angela Dewan, for CNN
Updated 2326 GMT (0726 HKT) August 2, 2016
(CNN) Two chemical gas attacks have been reported in northern Syria, one in the region where a Russian helicopter was downed a day earlier, killing all five people on board.
In the first alleged attack, cylinders suspected of containing chlorine gas were dropped in residential areas in the city of Saraqeb in Idlib province, the anti-regime, voluntary search-and-rescue group Idlib Civil Defence said in a post on its Facebook page.
Russia, Syria's key military backer, has vehemently denied that a chemical attack took place. In a news release carried by Russian and Syrian state news agencies, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the claims of chlorine usage were fabricated by the media.
The United States is not ready to officially call the incident in Saraqeb a chemical attack, but there is growing confidence that is what happened, a senior U.S. official told CNN on Tuesday evening. U.S. officials think chlorine was likely used, the source said. Evidence points to the Assad regime because the attack came from the sky and the opposition doesn't have any aircraft, the source added.
In the second alleged incident, the Syrian government claimed that "terrorist groups" carried out a gas attack that killed five people in the old town of the besieged city of Aleppo on Tuesday afternoon, according to the state-run news agency SANA. "Five civilians were killed and eight others suffered suffocation due to a terrorist attack with shells containing poisonous gas," the city's health director Mohamad Hazouri told SANA, which reported two others were killed and 17 others injured in separate terrorist attacks in the city Tuesday. Aleppo is about 50 kilometers (31 miles) northeast of Saraqeb.
Reports of the alleged chemical attacks came as a CNN stringer in rebel-held eastern Aleppo said intense airstrikes and artillery assaults were underway in the area, the fiercest bombardment in the five years of the conflict, he said. The assault was a counteroffensive from Syrian regime forces and their Russian allies after advances by rebel forces pushing to break the government siege that has been choking their territory. The city's eastern neighborhoods were encircled by government troops last week, cutting off all supply lines.
Doctor: Symptoms of chlorine poisoning
In the Saraqeb attack, the gas, which the statement said smelled like chlorine, caused 30 cases of breathing difficulties, said the Idlib Civil Defence, also known as the White Helmets. CNN has spoken with a doctor in Saraqeb who said he treated some of those affected by the alleged attack. He said their symptoms were consistent with those "of someone who has suffered from chlorine poisoning." A photographer who took photos of the injured for the White Helmets said victims were suffering symptoms such as watering eyes, spasms, sweating, coughing and difficulty breathing.
The Syrian National Council, a coalition of opposition groups, blamed the Assad regime for the alleged attack in Idlib province, where a Russian helicopter had earlier been downed after making what the Kremlin said was an aid delivery to Aleppo. "Developments on the ground show how the Assad regime continues to blatantly ignore international law and U.N. Security Council resolutions, especially those related to the use of chemical weapons," the Syrian National Council said.
Alleged attack comes after helicopter downed
The downing of the Russian helicopter Monday was the biggest single loss of life for Syria's key military backer since its warplanes started carrying out airstrikes in September 2015. No one has claimed responsibility for the downing of the Mi-8 aircraft. More at CNN.
COMMENTS (8/3/16): The chemical weapons attacks have arrived ... after some NATO nations entered the Syrian civil war and left. Russia is a suspect; so is Syria itself. Will this prompt renewed air strikes by France and the UK? Will NATO itself become involved? The provocation is here. PREDICTION FULFILLED.
NATO member Britain (UK) launches airstrikes against ISIS in Syria
launches airstrikes hours after Parliament backs ISIS
December 3, 2015
(CNN)British fighter jets have taken part in their first airstrikes in Syria, hours after UK lawmakers voted in favor of bombing ISIS strongholds there. "RAF Tornadoes have just returned from their first offensive operation over Syria and have conducted strikes," a spokesman for Britain's Ministry of Defense (MOD) said early Thursday.
The MOD previously said that Tornado fighters had taken off from an RAF airbase in Cyprus. Lawmakers voted 397 in favor of action and 223 against, following a 10-hour debate. After the November 13 terror attacks in Paris, France asked the U.S.-led coalition to bump up the military offensive against ISIS.
Now that Britain has decided to expand airstrikes that it previously conducted only in Iraq, the spotlight is on the German Parliament, which also is expected to approve greater military commitment against the terror group. The German plan would activate 1,200 troops in anti-ISIS efforts, but in a support role -- not direct combat.
U.S. President Barack Obama welcomed the British move and said the coalition would work "to integrate them into our coalition air tasking orders as quickly as possible."
Prime Minister David Cameron kicked off the debate by saying that ISIS is a threat to the British people, proved in part through the beheadings of UK hostages in the Middle East and other atrocities. "This is not about whether we want to fight terrorism. It's about how best we do that," Cameron said. He said the UK faces "'a fundamental threat to our security" and posed the question, "Do we work with our allies to degrade and destruct this threat ... or do we sit back and wait for them to attack us?"
"This is the right thing to do to keep Britain safe, to deal with this evil organization and as part of a process to bring peace and stability to Syria," Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond told CNN. Hammond said the military campaign will have two stages: airstrikes to degrade ISIS capabilities and an eventual ground assault. The airstrikes can begin "pretty much straight away" after the vote passes, he said.
In his rebuttal to Cameron, Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn called the Syria decision "one with potentially far-reaching consequences for us all, here in Britain, people in Syria and those in Middle East." Corbyn called for Cameron to explain "how British bombing in Syria will contribute to a comprehensive, negotiated, political settlement of the Syrian war." After the vote, Corbyn tweeted that Cameron pushed for the Parliament vote after he saw opposition in the country was growing. Corbyn said a diplomatic settlement on Syria should be the goal.
Britain's Parliament voted in 2013 against UK military action in Syria. Lawmakers in the House of Commons rebuffed Cameron's call for a strong response to allegations the Syrian government had used chemical weapons in the civil war. Parliamentary authorization has only been given for UK military action in neighboring Iraq as part of the international coalition against ISIS.
German legislators on Wednesday were debating on an expanded commitment, deploying high-tech intelligence jets over Syria and northern Iraq to help other countries' forces pinpoint targets. The Cabinet, representing a country known for its reluctance since World War II to engage in military adventures abroad, approved the military support mission against ISIS in Syria this week. Lawmakers must approve it, too, before it takes effect.
The measure reportedly has overwhelming political support, with only two smaller parties objecting. The vote is widely seen as a rubber stamping of Chancellor Angela Merkel's recent commitment to France's Hollande. In addition to sending troops and equipment in a support capacity against ISIS in Syria, Germany would strengthen its training mission in northern Iraq, according to German public media news site Deutsche Welle.
Germany has not committed to airstrikes, and its post-World War II constitution hinders it in participating in battle on foreign soil.
COMMENTS (12/6/15): Make that four NATO countries now: The United States, France, UK, and Turkey. Next we are waiting on Germany. It may be that this will never become an official NATO action, but will involve a coalition made up of so many NATO countries that it may as well be considered as one. If Germany and Poland join in, it pretty much is a NATO campaign. PREDICTION MUCH MORE PARTIALLY FULFILLED.
NATO member France launches airstrikes against ISIS in Syria
launches its first airstrikes against ISIS in Syria
By Ben Brumfield and Margot Haddad, CNN
Updated 1717 GMT (0017 HKT) September 27, 2015
(CNN)The French military has carried out its first airstrikes against ISIS in Syria, according to a statement from the office of France's presidency. The country had announced earlier this month that it would expand its aerial campaign against ISIS in Iraq -- which it began a year ago -- to include the militant group's positions in Syria.
The French president's office said that the strikes in Syria, which began Sunday, were based on intelligence gathered from air surveillance operations conducted over Syria during the past two weeks. "Our country confirms its firm commitment to the fight against the terrorist threat Daesh," the statement said, using the Arabic acronym for ISIS. "We will strike whenever our national security is at stake." President Francois Hollande, speaking on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly in New York, described the camp as a "threat to our country."
"We reached our goal and the whole training camp was destroyed," Hollande said. Six aircraft were used in the mission, which was led by the French but closely coordinated with the U.S.-led coalition, he said. Despite the "horrible acts" committed by ISIS, Hollande placed the blame for the Syrian crisis on the country's long time strongman Bashar al-Assad. "Bashar al Assad is the main person at fault, although Daesh commits horrible acts," Hollande said. "The future of Syria cannot happen with Bashar al Assad."
France has been the site of a number of terrorist attacks this year. Islamic extremists killed 17 people in a quick succession of attacks in Paris in January, including the shooting deaths of staff members in the offices of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. In June, authorities said a man in southeastern France decapitated his boss, displayed the severed head with Islamist banners and also set off an explosion in a factory. And last month, three American men brought down a suspected terrorist gunman who tried to open fire on a train bound for France ...

ISIS bombing in Turkey provokes US-Turkish air strikes and NATO talks
manned airstrikes from Turkey
By Jason Hanna, Greg Botelho and Nick Paton Walsh, CNN
Updated 1618 GMT (2318 HKT) August 13, 2015
(CNN)For the first time, the United States launched manned airstrikes from a base in Turkey against ISIS forces in Syria, the Pentagon said Wednesday. The attacks from Incirlik Air Base are part of an agreement reached last month between NATO allies Turkey and the United States.
The United States has long wanted to use Turkish bases for manned airstrikes against ISIS in Syria and parts of Iraq. Such access should shorten flight times for U.S. (and presumably allied) fighter jets -- especially into Syria, where the group calling itself the Islamic State has its de facto capital, Raqqa -- compared with taking off from bases in Iraq or aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf.
Washington has made going after ISIS one of its national security priorities. While it has helped train moderate Syrian rebels as well as Iraqi forces, the U.S. military hasn't put any of its troops in combat roles -- though Gen. Raymond Odierno, the Army's outgoing chief of staff, said such a move should be an option if more progress isn't made against ISIS.
So far, the air campaign has been America's biggest tool in its fight. Turkey's cooperation in this regard, paved by a July deal between President Barack Obama and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan allowing for the expanded access, should be a big help.
Turkey has long endured the buildup of ISIS on its porous border with Syria, but until July was reluctant to permit the United States to use its bases to strike the radical militant group. Ankara has been under pressure from allies to move more directly against ISIS, and that pressure grew inside Turkey after a series of attacks blamed on the group.
On July 20, a suicide blast that authorities blame on ISIS killed 32 people in Suruc, Turkey. Also that month, Turkey said ISIS militants attacked Turkish troops at the Turkey-Syria border, killing a soldier.
In addition to letting the United States use its bases for strikes, Turkey began launching its own against ISIS last month.
Turkish warplanes bomb ISIS positions in Syria for the first time
By Gul Tuysuz, CNN | Updated 0807 GMT (1507 HKT) July 24, 2015
Istanbul (CNN)Turkish warplanes bombed ISIS positions in Syria for the first time early Friday, escalating the conflict in the region a day after members of the terrorist group killed a Turkish soldier in a border clash. Three F-16s took off from an air base in southeastern Turkey and struck three ISIS targets just inside Syria, Turkish authorities said.
Turkey's decision to attack ISIS positions was taken during a national security meeting Thursday headed by Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu. It followed the firefight earlier Thursday in which at least five ISIS militants in northern Syria approached the border and fired on a Turkish border unit, killing one of the soldiers and wounding two others, according to the Turkish military. Turkey initially responded to the clash by firing artillery into Syria.
The Turkish military has targeted positions in Syria before but only as a response to incoming fire from the Syrian side of the border. This is the first time Turkey has used its warplanes to attack ISIS positions.
The airstrikes Friday hit two ISIS bases and a gathering point, the Turkish Prime Minister's office said in a statement. The targets were chosen based on intelligence reports suggesting a buildup of weapons and explosives in the area, a Turkish official told CNN on condition of anonymity.
The fighter jets have completed their mission for now, but the Turkish official didn't rule out the possibility of further airstrikes. "We are committed to eliminating the national security threat," the official said. There is a longstanding resolution that has been passed by the Turkish parliament permitting military action against Syria.
The intensified violence comes after one of the deadliest terror attacks to happen in Turkey in years -- a suicide bombing that killed at least 31 people Monday in Suruc, a Turkish town that borders Syria. The blast struck a gathering of mostly Kurdish activists calling for more help to rebuild Kobani, the Syrian city that was the scene of intense fighting last fall between ISIS and predominantly Kurdish forces. Davutoglu told reporters Tuesday that early indications pointed to involvement by ISIS in the Suruc bombing, though an investigation hadn't been completed.
COMMENTS (8/23/15): Make that two NATO countries now: The United States and Turkey. PREDICTION PARTIALLY FULFILLED.
Could this also be the beginning of the Islam prophecy concerning the "war in the Byzantine Empire"?
This is from 2003 - The Coming of AL MAHDI (Allah's endless Rahmah be upon him) subtitled "Mahdi 'Alayhis Salaam, Allah's Khalifah" by Sheikh Moulana Sayyid Muhammed Bidre-Aalimra and translated, edited and published by Mufti Abdullah ibn Abdurahmaan. The focus for our purposes here is during the time of the Sufyaani, a great Arab leader whose appearance and reign will precede the Mahdi. It would not be much of a stretch today to conclude that this Sufyaani may well be Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and his Islamic State (referred to by media as ISIS):
War in the Byzantine Empire
During the days of the Sufyaani, the Byzantine ruler will be at war with one Christian faction and will make peace with the other (Christian faction). Thus the warring Christian faction will run over Qustuntuniyyah (Istanbul), and will occupy it. The Byzantine ruler will flee and go to Shaam. The Muslim army with the aid of the friendly Christian party will wage war against the enemy Christian party, and will be victorious.
A person from the friendly Christian party will thus announce that "because of the cross, victory was gained", and in the name of the cross we won. On hearing this, a person from the Muslim army will assault this Christian person and will say no "Islaam was victorious and because of Islaam victory was gained".
As a result of this incident, war will break out between the Muslims and the friendly Christian party. The Muslim leader will be martyred and the Christians will take over Shaam. Thereafter, the two Christian parties will make peace, and the remaining muslims will migrate to Madinah. The Christian rule will extend almost up to khaiber, which is to the north of Madinah. Now the muslims will begin their search for Allah's khalifah - the Mahdi.

U.S. airstrikes hit ISIS inside Syria for first time
By Jim Sciutto,
Mariano Castillo and Holly Yan,
(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.
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.
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.
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.

35,000 Turkish Troops Launch Invasion into Iraq in New Kurd War: Real Start of WW3?
NEW PREDICTION: 2/29/16: Base 7 dating: March 2016.
More accurately, this invasion could begin anywhere in a window of March, April, or May 2016. Another such window opens up in 2018.
If the ceasefire in the Syrian Conflict holds, it is very possible Turkey will launch a new war against the Kurds. I suppose it could happen even if the ceasefire doesn't hold, which will make an even bigger mess of things. This would be a repeat of Operation Steel launched by Turkey into northern Iraq against the PKK Kurds from March to May 1995, twenty-one (3 x 7) years ago. Certainly the number of troops could be even larger in the invasion force. The casualties on the Kurd side were so great that then-acting Prime Minister Tansu Ciller ordered a news blackout. If this happens again, I cannot see that it will accomplish anything other than renewing the hostilities in Syria and bringing an end to the ceasefire. If that happens, Russia will almost certainly go to war with Turkey and will conquer the country. Two other more dangerous windows for a Turkish-Kurd conflict open up in 2018.
This could be the start of "the War in the Byzantine Empire" that appears in Islamic prophecy. It happens when the Sufyani is at war in Syria and Iraq (which al-Baghdadi and ISIS are at this time). There is no time given for the length of this war, but when it ends, the Sufyani is killed in Aleppo. That war will become very huge, bringing in armies from Saudi Arabia and other nations not currently fighting in large numbers in Syria. It may also spread beyond Turkey to the other former Byzantine empire nations in the Balkans, the former Soviet Union, and Eastern Europe.
The Turkey-Kurd War could be the conflict that links war in the Middle East with war in Europe and becomes "World War III."
Turkey Strikes Kurds, ISIS in North Syria
By Reuters On 8/27/16 at 12:53 PM
Rebels supported by Turkey fought Kurdish-backed forces in north Syria on Saturday, as Ankara ratcheted up its cross-border offensive by saying it had launched air strikes on Kurdish forces and the Islamic State militant group (ISIS).
Turkey's government, which is fighting a Kurdish insurgency at home, has said the Syrian campaign launched this week is as much about targeting ISIS as it is about preventing Kurdish forces filling the vacuum left when Islamists withdraw. Turkey wants to stop Kurdish forces from gaining control of a continuous stretch of Syrian territory on its frontier, which Ankara fears could be used to support the Kurdish militant group PKK as it wages its three-decade insurgency on Turkish soil.
Turkish security sources said two F-16 jets bombed a site controlled by the Kurdish YPG militia, which is part of the broader U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) coalition. The sources also said the jets hit six ISIS targets. Ankara's opponents said Turkish forces had targeted YPG-allied forces but that no Kurdish forces were involved.
On the ground, Turkish-backed Syrian rebels fought forces aligned to the SDF near the frontier town of Jarablus. Forces opposed to Ankara said Turkish tanks were deployed, a charge denied by Turkey's rebel allies.
Turkey launched its offensive into Syria on Wednesday, supporting its rebel allies with Turkish special forces, tanks and warplanes. It seized control of Jarablus from ISIS, seeking to stop any Kurdish forces moving in first. Saturday's use of warplanes against what Turkey said was a Kurdish YPG militia target highlights its determination to prevent any Kurdish territorial expansion in north Syria.
Any action against Kurdish forces in Syria puts Turkey at odds with its NATO ally the United States, which backs the SDF and YPG, seeing them as the most reliable and effective ally in the fight against ISIS in Syria. It adds complexity to the Syrian conflict that erupted five years ago with an uprising against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and has since drawn in regional states and world powers.
The Jarablus Military Council, part of the SDF, had said earlier on Saturday that Turkish planes hit the village of al-Amarna south of Jarablus, causing civilian casualties. It called the action "a dangerous escalation."
The Kurdish-led administration that controls parts of northern Syria said Turkish tanks advanced on al-Amarna and clashed with forces of the Jarablus Military Council. But the Kurdish administration said no Kurdish forces were involved.
However, the leader of one Turkey-backed rebel group gave a rival account. He told Reuters the rebels battled the Kurdish YPG around al-Amarna and denied any Turkish tanks took part. Turkish security forces simply said Turkish-backed forces had extended their control to five villages beyond Jarablus.
A video released by Turkey's military showed the Turkish Red Crescent distributing food and aid to people in Jarablus, with the help of Turkish troops. It also showed what appeared to be Turkish-backed rebels flicking v-for-victory signs in the town.
The newly formed Jarablus Military Council has said it was made up of people from the area with the aim of capturing the town and the surrounding region from Islamic State militants. However, the Turkish-backed rebels seized Jarablus first.
Several militias under the SDF banner pledged support to Jarablus Military Council after it reported the Turkish bombing. The Northern Sun Battalion, an SDF faction, said in a statement it was heading to "Jarablus ronts" to help the council against "threats made by factions belonging to Turkey."
Tension has mounted in Syria's Aleppo region in the past year between the U.S-backed Kurdish YPG force and its allies on one hand and Turkish-backed rebel groups on the other. The two sides have clashed on several occasions.
targets Kurdish forces south of Syria's Jarablus
News Syria's Civil War 28 August 2016
Turkish jets and artillery have targeted Kurdish forces south of the strategic town of Jarablus, according to a monitor and local sources, as Turkey continues a major military offensive inside northern Syria. Turkey first sent tanks across the border on Wednesday as part of a two-pronged operation against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) fighters, as well as Kurdish-led forces. The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Saturday's air strikes and shelling hit the village of Amarneh, which was captured recently by the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
The Jarablus Military Council, which is allied with the SDF, said the air strikes in Amarneh marked an "unprecedented and dangerous escalation" after Turkish artillery shelling targeted Kurdish YPG forces, the backbone of the SDF alliance, on Friday. The council said that there were injuries, without giving any further details, but warned that the escalation threatened to "endanger the future of the region" and vowed to stand its ground.
Wladimir van Wilgenburg, an analyst based in the nearby Kurdish-controlled city of Qamishli, told Al Jazeera that the clashes had increased throughout Saturday. "There have been reports that SDF fighters have blown up a Turkish tank. The fighting is ongoing," he said.
Later on Saturday, one Turkish soldier and three others were wounded in a rocket attack on a Turkish tank south of Jarablus late on Saturday, according to Turkey's state-run Anadolu news agency, in the military's first fatality since the launch of its offensive to partly help Syria rebels capture Jarablus from ISIL, also known as ISIS. Turkish military sources said the rocket was fired from territory held by the Kurdish YPG. Earlier on Saturday, the Northern Sun Battalion, an SDF faction, had said in a statement that it was heading to "Jarablus fronts" to help the council against "threats made by factions belonging to Turkey".
Ankara has long accused the YPG, or the Kurdish People's Protection Units, of being linked to Kurdish fighters in its own southeast. It has ordered the group, a well-trained force that has been the US-led coalition's most effective ground partner in the war against ISIL, to withdraw to the east bank of the Euphrates, which crosses the Syria-Turkey border at Jarablus.
ISIL has controlled territory along the Syria-Turkey border since 2013. And in 2014, US-backed Kurdish forces began a push to retake the border area. After the Kurdish-led SDF seized the nearby city of Manbij from ISIL earlier this month, it left ISIL with Jarablus as its only border stronghold. The Turkish offensive pre-empted an attempt by the Kurdish-led forces to take control of Jarablus first.
John Kerry, the US Secretary of State, said on Wednesday during a visit to Turkey that the YPG should withdraw east of the Euphrates, and that a refusal to do so would mean an end to Washington's support for the group. Emin Bozoglan, head of the Syrian Turkmen Assembly, told Turkish media on Saturday that the operation in Jarablus is aimed at taking ISIL-controlled al-Bab, near the divided city of Aleppo. The Kurds have also set their sights on al-Bab.
Their forces aim to connect the main part of Kurdish-controlled territory to the east of the Euphrates with the Kurdish-controlled town of Efrin to the West. Manbij and al-Bab lie directly in between the two Kurdish de-facto autonomous zones. "Syrian Kurdish civilians here are worried that it won't be possible to connect the two sides and make one region," said van Wilgenburg. "Now, as both sides push towards al-Bab, things could deteriorate."
Kerry said late on Friday in Geneva that the US had supported Kurdish fighters on a "limited basis" and remained in close coordination with Turkey. "We are for a united Syria. We do not support an independent Kurd initiative."
And while battles between Turkish-backed rebels and Kurdish forces increase to the west of the Euphrates, Kurdish sources said Turkey had also crossed into Syria near Kobane, a symbolic town to the east of the Euphrates, to begin constructing a wall. "Basically the aim is to shut down all cross-border activity. To stop the cross-border smuggling and to strangle the Kurdish administration," said van Wilgenburg.
COMMENTS (9/2/16): I was cautious about any immediate reaction to Turkey sending troops, jets, and tanks into northern Syria, especially when the initial reports were that they were targeting ISIS. I had a sneaky suspicion though that the Kurds would also be engaged, which is now quite obviously the case. Some analysts have even said the war on ISIS is just an excuse to go to war with the Kurds. How far this will go I don't know: the total number of troops committed thus far is about half of what it was in the 1995 campaign this prediction is based upon. However, regional military strategists have been playing with the 35,000 number again for starts as what will be required for the Turks to realise their objectives. There are reports out right now comparing this military campaign with the one in 1995. I can see no reason not to consider this a PREDICTION FULFILLED although clearly still in progress.

Attempted Assassination of U.S. President Barack Obama
NEW PREDICTION: 11/26/14: Base 7 dating: March 2016.
POSTED (8/30/15): This could have went up at any time as my original notes that were at top of page more or less have already said it all:
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.
The only thing I would add is that I find it highly unlikely this will occur; opportunities in 1988, 1995, 2002, and 2009 never materialized. Plus, in 2016, Obama will be on his way out anyway.
shooting: Suspect in custody
By Eric Bradner, CNN
Updated 2337 GMT (0637 HKT) March 28, 2016
Washington (CNN) U.S. Capitol Police shot a Tennessee man Monday afternoon after he pulled out a gun at the Capitol Visitor Center, law enforcement officials said.
A female civilian bystander was injured by shrapnel, but no U.S. Capitol Police officers were injured.
"We believe this is an act of a single person who has frequented the Capitol grounds before, and there is no reason to believe this is anything more than a criminal act," U.S. Capitol Police Chief Matthew Verderosa said.
He said the gunman, who law enforcement officials identified as Larry Russell Dawson, is currently in surgery at a hospital and that a weapon was recovered on the scene. Verderosa also described the woman's injuries as "minor" and said she was transported to a hospital.
The gunman attempted to go through the metal detectors at the Capitol Visitor Center entrance. When those magnetometers beeped, he was stopped by security and then pulled out a gun.
A Capitol police officer then shot him, sources told CNN.
Dawson was arrested on a charge of assaulting a police officer in October after an outburst in the chamber of the House of Representatives.
Court documents from that 2015 incident describe Dawson as a 66-year-old man from Tennessee. In that incident, according to the documents, Dawson "loudly stated to Congress he was a 'prophet of God.' "
The Capitol complex was locked down for nearly an hour following the incident. The Senate Sergeant at Arms has told staffers and others to "return to normal operations."
"Per USCP, shelter in place has been lifted and the Capitol is open for official business only. Capitol Visitor Center remains closed," the Senate Sergeant at Arms tweeted.
No other suspects appear to be at large, according to a notice sent to Senate staffers.
"There has been an isolated incident at the U.S. Capitol. There is no active threat to the public," the D.C. Police Department tweeted.
Police and firefighters swarmed the entrance of the visitor center, which is packed this week with tourists, spring break visitors and school groups.
Congressional staffers were sent a notice to shelter in place, instructing them to lock doors and move to assigned shelter areas. Those outside the buildings on the Capitol complex were told to "seek cover away from the area."
Most lawmakers were away from the Capitol on Monday.
House Speaker Paul Ryan, who is not currently in Washington, has been briefed on the incident, according to his spokesman.
"Today we are reminded of the courage and daily sacrifice of the United States Capitol Police," he said in a statement.
"The Capitol is our greatest symbol of democracy, and these officers serve to protect not just those who work there but also the millions of visitors from all around the world who travel each year to see it."
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is in Louisville and his staff is safe, his spokesman said.
The White House also briefly closed its North and South fence lines as a precautionary measure after the Capitol incident.
COMMENTS (3/28/16): The last time this happened the attack was far deadlier. The time was July 24, 1998 ... and two police officers were killed during the attack by deranged gunman Russell Eugene Weston Jr. I had a November 1998 assassination watch in place for President Bill Clinton that year. Even though I had no internet access or means to create a website until February 1999 (my site went live in May 1999), I was practicing at what I would write if I was online. I had been using the base 7 system in isolation since January 1996. If I had been online in 1998, the Clinton assassination prediction would have been one of a number featured, and the U.S. Capitol Shooting of July of that year would have been considered a "Close Call." There were other close calls for Clinton that year as well, including a thwarted bridge bombing on the route that he and his wife Hillary took during a visit to Bosnia.
The only other incident where a shooting in the U.S. Capitol resulted in injuries was on March 1, 1954, when five members of the House of Representatives were wounded by Puerto Rican nationalists. To this day, the July 1998 incident was the only one resulting in deaths.
There were several bombings at the Capitol also, but no injuries, in 1983, 1971, and 1915.
To me, any bloodshed in Washington D.C. aimed at the power and authority of the U.S. government and its officials is a symbolic attack against the life of the U.S. president. These people who go mad and shoot in the Capitol building or near the White House are, in my book, all potential assassins. That is why an event such as this one, occurring in the very month of March in the very year predicted (2016) for an attempt on the life of President Obama counts as a significant CLOSE CALL.

Famous Heiress or Socialite is Abducted and/or Murdered
Patty Hearst, upper left: Mary Jacqueline Levitz, lower left:
upper right: Martine Vik Magnussen, lower right: Kinga Legg
NEW PREDICTION: 11/26/14 -- DESCRIPTION: 11/10/15: Base 7 dating: March 2016.
Initially, this prediction was based on the Patty Hearst kidnapping of February 4, 1974. She was and is an heiress to the fortune of publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst. Abducted at gunpoint from her apartment by a domestic terrorist organization known as the Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA), Hearst, age 19 at the time, came to identify with her captors (an example of the oft-cited "Stockholm Syndrome"). She even participated with an M1 carbine machine gun in some of the armed bank heists the group carried out. She was eventually arrested in September 1975, and determined by doctors to be a victim of brainwashing. Nevertheless, after a grueling court trial, on March 20, 1976 Hearst was convicted of bank robbery and using a firearm in a felony and was given the maximum sentence of 35 years' imprisonment. She was released on bail in November 1976, but after exhausting all appeals, including allegations that she had been raped repeatedly by members of the SLA, was placed back into prison in May 1978. President Jimmy Carter, swayed in part by remarks made by actor John Wayne in the aftermath of the Jim Jones Guyana Massacre wherein over 900 brainwashed adults committed mass suicide and murder, commuted Patty Hearst's sentence to 22 months, including time served, and she was freed eight months early in 1979. Hearst received a full pardon from President Bill Clinton in January 2001.
From abduction to probable murder. Twenty-one (3 x 7) years and nine months after the Patty Hearst abduction, Levitz Furniture heiress Mary Jacqueline Levitz, age 62, went missing on November 18, 1995. When her home was searched, police found signs of a violent struggle: the torn tips of fingernails were scattered on the floor, and when they flipped over Levitz's mattress, they found it stained with a large quantity of blood that matched her type. Officially she remained a missing person because her body was never found; but Levitz was later declared dead on November 18, 2000. Cause of death? Likely murder by person or persons unknown.
From probable murder to rape and murder. Seven years later, on January 6, 2002, fashion writer and socialite Christa Worthington, age 46, was found raped and stabbed to death at her home in Truro, Massachusetts. Her two-year-old daughter was also found unharmed, clinging to her mother's half-naked body. This homicide was also given the name The Cape Cod Murder Case by the media. A local garbage collector, Christopher McCowen, was arrested and charged with Worthington's rape and murder on April 15, 2005. In 2008 and again in 2011, books were written raising reasonable doubt about McCowen being involved in the rape/murder and that evidence of sperm on the body only supported McCowen's claim that sex was consensual, that Worthington had seduced him, and that she was alive and well when he left the house. If true, the murder case would actually still have to be considered as unsolved.
From rape and murder to rape and murder ... twice. Six rather than seven years later, and reported on this website as a "prediction fulfilled" for 2009, after being missing a few days, on March 18, 2008, Norwegian heiress and socialite Martine Vik Magnussen was discovered dead, strangled and naked, beneath rubble in a basement. I considered the event to be a case of repetition occurring a year premature, which sometimes happens in this base 7 conundrum. On July 30, 2008, Playboy millionaire Farouk Abdulhak was named as the primary suspect in the socialite's rape and murder. Although "wanted for murder," Abdulhak, the son of one Yemen's wealthiest men, is living in Yemen and therefore can not be extradicted. He will likely get away with Martine's rape and murder by strangulation.
However, if a year premature was hard to swallow, another case occurred in 2009 ... the actual target year. On May 29, 2009, Polish millionairess Kinga Legg, 36, was found slumped naked in a bath in a sound-proofed £1,000-a-night room at the renowned Bristol Hotel. Kinga suffered massive head injuries from being repeatedly bludgeoned over the head with a lamp stand. Playboy Ian Griffin, Legg's boyfriend at the time, was arrested June 1 and charged with her murder.
There was a long lull of 21 years between the Hearst abduction and the Levitz disappearance/probable murder. However, since 1995, this has been an every seven years event, and most recently two cases, one a year premature of seven years (six years) and the other at seven years. This over-the-threshold situation from 2008/09 may mean seven years will be skipped ... or even another lull of 21 years. Unfortunately there is one other factor to consider.
At the time of the Hearst abduction, she was unknown to the public. It was her abduction and captivity and involvement in crime that brought her into the media spotlight. The same can be said about the murdered and raped and murdered heiresses and socialites. They were fairly unknown or completely unknown to the public until they became homicide victims.
There is today a young woman who is extremely well-known and is an heiress and a socialite, as well as an actress, TV personality, model, singer, DJ, and author. That is none other than Paris Hilton, age 34, heiress to the Hilton Hotel fortune and perpetually in the media spotlight. Given the danger posed by the continuous trend I have discussed above, it doesn't take much of an imagination to realize that at some time in the future, whether it is in 2016, 2023, 2029, or later, she will be in positive danger of losing her life to an assailant of some kind, a boyfriend or a stranger. Also, given that the oldest victim on this timeline, Mary Jacqueline Levitz, was 62 years old when she was (likely) murdered, Hilton's chances of being murdered will continue until at least the year 2043.
Additionally, there is a second heiress timeline of doom that runs the following year (January 2017) based on the abduction and murder of British heiress Lesley Whittle, age 17, in January 1975. Whittle, whose body was found completely naked, had been hanged to death. Donald Neilson was apprehended 11 months later and charged with her kidnapping and murder. He was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Thirty-five (5 x 7) years passed by, and then in 2010, once again in January, Johnson & Johnson billionaire heiress Casey Johnson (a friend of Paris Hilton's) and British heiress Robyn Whitehead were found dead in what appeared to be drug-related incidents. In addition, a break-in attempt of Paris Hilton's home by a knife-wielding maniac occurred on August 24, 2010. Whether this home invasion attempt was related to the 2010 theme or was a "one year late" close call from 2009 is uncertain.
As for this year, one key event may be warning Paris Hilton to be on guard in 2016 and 2017. On June 26, Paris Hilton was pranked into thinking she would die in a plane mishap. Paris Hilton Falls Victim to Cruel Prank - June 29, 2015.
This event may be offering insight into what the chances are that Hilton (or someone else who is an heiress or socialite) will be murdered in March 2016 or January 2017, if not before. It is a positive warning for somebody to watch out!
immigrant 'screamed "you have treated me like a
dog" before punching and strangling American artist
to death in jealous drug-fueled frenzy' after sex in her
January 13, 2016
An illegal immigrant has confessed to killing American artist Ashley Olsen in her Italian apartment, who was punched and strangled with a USB cord in what police say was a jealous 'drug-fueled' frenzy
Cheik Tidiane Diaw, 25, told officers he strangled Olsen after the pair had sex when she told him he had to leave because her boyfriend was coming back. The Senegalese man was caught because of DNA evidence from a used condom and cigarette found in the toilet - which he had tried to flush away unsuccessfully. Italian police said they had to swoop on him quickly because they feared he was about to flee Florence.
The chief prosecutor said that the alleged murderer had initially given a false alibi to police when he was first questioned. He was freed but then re-arrested when his DNA was matched.
Olsen, whose funeral will be held in the Italian city tomorrow, suffered two fractures to the skull and was strangled with a USB cord.
She met her alleged killer at the Montecarla club, notorious for sex and drugs, and left together at 5.30am, when they went to her apartment.
The victim did not leave the club alone, as previously thought, and Diaw's confession suggests that the police's initial finding of a 'consensual' kinky sex game before her death may have been wrong.
At a press conference today in Florence, the chief prosecutor Giuseppe Creazzo said: 'We think sexual relations occurred before the homicide, not during it. 'We do not know whether they took drugs together before she was killed but we are awaiting the results of analysis,' he added.
Police found a used condom and cigarette in the victim's toilet which helped identify the suspect. The killer had attempted to flush the condom and cigarette down the lavatory, investigators said, but the flush had failed and the objects were recovered by the forensic team.
Diaw is also alleged to have taken her phone from the scene of the crime and placed his own SIM card inside it. He told police that her death was the result of a fight after having consensual sex ...
Italian police search for killer after American socialite found strangled in her Florence apartment
Ashley Ann Olsen, an artist who had moved from Florida, was found dead in mysterious circumstances with her neck bruised and scratched
By Andrea Vogt, Florence | The Telegraph
11:12AM GMT 10 Jan 2016
Italian police are investigating the murder of a popular American expat found strangled to death in her flat near the river Arno. Ashley Ann Olsen, 35, originally of South Haven, Florida, was found naked with bruises and scratches on her neck in her flat Saturday afternoon.
The news sent tremors through the tight-knit expat community of foreigners in Florence, as well as the vibrant, artistic Oltrarno neighborhood where she lived, along the left bank of the river that bisects the city. On Sunday, many passerby stopped to leave bouquets of fresh flowers on her doorstep. La Americana, la Americana, said regulars at the café and tobacco shop on the corner. Everybody around here knew who she was . . the blonde American with the little dog, said one young Italian woman who was walking her two small dogs down Olsens street in the Santo Spirito quarter.
Her body was discovered after her boyfriend, an up and coming contemporary Italian painter, said he became alarmed after being unable to reach her for several days. The two had fought, he said, but when she did not pick up his calls he contacted the landlord, who allowed him into Miss Olsens locked flat, where he found her and then called police, according to Italian media reports. Police said she had bruises and scratches that suggested she tried to fight off her aggressor, but noted no signs of a forced entry into the small apartment on Via Santa Monaca. Her pet beagle, Scout, was found outside.
Miss Olsen moved to Florence in 2012 to study art and be near her father, who also lives in Florence, where he teaches art at an American school. Bubbly, popular and wealthy, the American appeared to be living a glamorous, bohemian expat life, which she chronicled regularly on Facebook and Instagram in enthusiastic bursts of short, hashtagged phrases. She posted pictures of her favorite haunts the narrow cobblestone streets around her flat, the nearby square, her boyfriends art studio, the chic wine bars where she hung out. She garnered dozens of likes for the pretty snaps of her with her beloved beagle or enjoying road trips, from the backstreets of Berlin to balmy Mediterranean isles.
Her Instagram motto was Live free or die.
But it remains a mystery who made that choice for her. Police were questioning a large group of American friends about her last movements as well as her boyfriend, a 45-year-old Italian who had lived for years in California before resettling in Tuscany and building a budding career in contemporary art that led to exhibitions in New York, Berlin, Asia and Europe. She posted many pictures of them as a couple, often partying, and sometimes with affectionate comments like #thisguy is #somethingelse.
But one woman, a regular at Miss Olsens neighborhood café who was in frequent contact with her, told the Telegraph she had recently confided there were problems in the relationship. I talked to her nearly every day, I felt like a mother figure to her, said the woman, who asked not to be named. She had been in a previous marriage that ended badly, and still had her ex-husbands name tattooed on the inside of her wrist. I encouraged her to get therapy, to not repeat the situation."
Miss Olsen also hinted that her social media postings had attracted unwanted attention from strangers. Nine weeks ago she shared on Instagram several pictures that she suggested had been taken of her in her neighborhood without her consent. She attached the hashtags #Ihaveastalker, #creeperpic and #stalkeralert.
Investigators were studying her computer and phone records as well as CCTV images from the well-trafficked intersection near her flat for clues. The investigation is active and ongoing, so we are not making any official declarations at this time, said Florence police spokeswoman Maddalena Carosi, who said no suspects had yet been named.
The investigator in charge of the Florence Flying Squad is no stranger to high profile murder cases involving foreigners, having led the investigation into British exchange student Meredith Kerchers murder in Perugia in 2007. As head of the Perugia Flying Squad at the time, Giacinto Profazio was present at Amanda Knoxs interrogation and had testified that the American from Seattle did cartwheels and the splits in the police station while waiting to be questioned about Miss Kercher's murder.
Miss Knox, who Italys Supreme Court last year acquitted of murder, maintained she was just doing yoga to relieve stress. Mr. Profazio was later transfered to Rome, then appointed in early 2015 to lead Florence Flying Squad, where he now is among the lead investigators probing Olsens murder.
COMMENTS (1/12/16): Thus far, and there are no suspects yet, the death of artist and socialite Ashley Ann Olsen is an almost exact repeat of the murder of socialite Martine Vik Magnussen. Her naked body was found strangled, but found in bed rather than under rubble. It is believed she was strangled in the bed. Like Vik Magnussen, she was a blonde. However, it remains to be seen if she was raped or not. The Vik Magnussen case was a year premature (2008 rather than 2009), but the Olsen case is in the correct year and only off by two months (January rather than March). But then again, the sex slaying of fashion writer and socialite Christa Worthington occurred in January 2002, exactly 14 (2 x 7) years ago ... and almost to the very day. This is clearly a PREDICTION FULFILLED. A potential for another such slaying exists due to the Kinga Legg murder in May 2009. Also, two more could occur in 2017, one of the victims British.
COMMENTS (2/2/16): Well, there's a suspect now. And, yes folks, it's kinky sex and a strangulation murder all over again. This little hottie was apparently looking for kicks in one of the most dangerous Italian clubs in Florence ... one that was a hotbed for hard drugs and all kinds of edgeplay sex ... and apparently she found her "Mr. Goodbar." Case closed? Probably not. Keep checking in. Prediction is certainly fulfilled in all respects, maybe moreso.

NEW PREDICTION: 11/26/14 -- DESCRIPTION: 8/4/15: Base 7 dating: March 2016.
There are two base 7 system lines of tragedy that have a high potential to repeat every seven years. The two sexiest women of the 20th Century, ranked in the January 1999 issue of Playboy Magazine, were both blondes and both died tragically. This line of tragedy begins with the #2 female on the Playboy list: actress Jayne Mansfield.
Jayne Mansfield, whose career went into tailspin following the 1962 death of Marilyn Monroe and the subsequent decision by film studios to go for a new "look" and stop featuring blonde bombshell actresses, died in an horrific automobile crash on June 29, 1967. Rumors were that she was decapitated, but facts indicate severe head trauma and a crushed skull. The "head" seen in photographs on the hood near the windshield was actually her blonde wig along with some of her real hair, and possibly also pieces of her scalp.
I don't remember Jayne Mansfield's death. I was 13 at the time and do recall some bad taste joke that was making the rounds about that time which my cousin told my father ... something about how her "air padding" or "water wings" or whatever should have saved her. He might have gotten it off Johnny Carson's The Tonight Show for all I know.
Despite her "dumb blonde" persona in film, Jayne was a highly intelligent woman from what I have read, had a genious IQ score, could speak five languages, and was an accomplished classical pianist and violinist.
Jayne's daughter, actress Mariska Hargitay, is a dead ringer for her mother, at least that is what some people say. 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."
Fourteen (2 x 7) years later, on November 29, 1981, the very famous actress Natalie Wood was found dead in the waters off Santa Catalina island, reportedly an accidental drowning although suspicions of foul play still haunt the case to this day.
This case I remember like it was last week. I had just turned 28 the month before it happened. It was very shocking ... and Natalie Wood was a superstar as actresses go, I will tell you.
Watching Natalie Wood in Brainstorm when the film was finally released to cable television in 1984 (it's theatrical release was in 1983) was a very eerie experience. The subject of death and what happens afterwards turned out to be a major theme in the movie. Oddly, it was actress Louise Fletcher who played the tragic heroine. Natalie goes on to live happily ever after with Christopher Walken's character. That always left me with a strange feeling: the living mourned as dead, and the dead living happily ever after. I suppose, in the end, that is part of the movie's charm and allure.
No one really knows what happened to Natalie. I don't suppose we ever will know. Sometimes I think it is better that way ... there is something unhealthy about conspiracy theories I have come to feel after being exposed to them for nearly two decades. Yet, like the occult, like the Illuminati, they have come to be part of the new normal of Internet existence. Life would just be too boring for most people without the mystery, the wonder, the dread, and the awe that surrounds such topics.
When Princess Diana died her death hit me like a ton of bricks. At that time my biggest fear wasn't that she would end up becoming the subject of a conspiracy theory ... my biggest fear was that Princess Diana would be forgotten, perhaps sooner rather than later, fading forever into the long dark tunnel of history.
So maybe it is the mysteries and conspiracy theories that keep our deceased icons from the past alive: Marilyn Monroe, John F. Kennedy, Princess Diana ... and in this timeline currently under discussion, Jayne Mansfield and Natalie Wood.
Fourteen (2 x 7) years after the drowning death of Natalie Wood, on March 31, 1995, a promising young singer/songwriter and actress named Selena (Selena Quintanilla-Pérez) was murdered by her fan club manager Yolanda Saldívar. Selena, who was headed for superstardom, was shot in the back. Selena was often called the Mexican Madonna or the Tejano version of Madonna.
Back in 2001, on my original Madonna Prophecy pages, I indicated that if Selena had not been murdered, it is likely it would have been Madonna herself who would have been slain. Events suggest that may have been what was originally destined to occur. Later the same year, on May 29, 1995, a stalker named Robert Dewey Hoskins scaled the wall at the mansion of pop music icon Madonna with the intention of "slitting her throat from ear to ear" ... attempting to make good on a threat he sent her by letter. He was shot in the leg by a security guard, arrested, and tried in January 1996 ... then sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Seven years later, on April 25, 2002, singer and dancer Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes was killed in a car crash. Footage of her final days, which includes that from a live cam running in her car at the time of the fatal accident, was turned into a documentary and aired on VH1 in 2007. Three days earlier, on April 22, 2002, former porn icon Linda Lovelace died from injuries suffered in a separate car crash. Both women, therefore, died in the same manner as Jayne Mansfield.
Last time around on this timeline occurred again seven years later. On March 18, 2009, actress Natasha Richardson died after sustaining a brain injury during a skiing accident in Quebec. At first after falling she got up and said she felt alright, but later in the hotel complained about feeling ill. She was taken to the hospital where she soon after slipped into a coma and was declared brain dead. At that time she was then flown to a New York City hospital where she was removed from life support and died the next day. Like Natalie Wood, she was a major film star and was also from the highly prestigious Redgrave acting family. Natalie Wood was 43 when she died; Natasha Richardson was 45.
Notice how the interval of time changed from every 14 years (1967 to 1981 to 1995) to every 7 years (1995 to 2002 to 2009). 2002 was like 1967 and 2009 somewhat like 1981. If this continues on to 2016, it will bring us back to the kind of events that marked 1995: homicide and attempted homicide.
There are events that have occurred this year (2015) that may indicate that this is what will happen next year.
First, there is Pamela Anderson, a major blonde star who is most reminiscent of Jayne Mansfield, and ranked #8 on Playboy's list in 1999. She has not been without her problems this year. In March 2015 she won a restraining order against estranged husband Rick Salomon following a kinky sex session gone wrong. She claimed that on the night of January 15, 2015 he tried to smother her with a pillow and strangle her.
The documents allege that the celebutant attempted to strangle the actress and pushed a pillow over her face during mid-intercourse. To quote The Improper: "Whether Anderson willingly agreed to be strangled for sexual pleasure and Salomon got a little to aggressive, or he tried to kill her is unknown at the moment."
Next, there is the lone survivor on this timeline, one who was endangered but is still alive ... pop icon Madonna.
Madonna, who has aped Jayne Mansfield, Jean Harlow, Marilyn Monroe, and many other blonde actresses during her long career, had a most spectacular "accident" on February 25, 2015: she was left with whiplash following her on-stage tumble at the Brit Awards and said that she will not be wearing any more long flowing capes tied tightly around her neck at future shows.
"So here I am marching in like the Queen and I got to the top of the stairs and I pulled my silky string and it did not come undone," she said. "My two lovely Japanese dancers basically strangled me off the stage. I had a choice - I could either be strangled or fall with the cape, and I fell."
Fortunately for Madonna, this event was not fatal. It could have easily been as she was tempting fate by repeating the very mishap that claimed the life of another major dancer and choreographer of the last century ... Isadora Duncan. Duncan was killed on September 14, 1927, when the long scarf she was wearing got caught in the spoke of a tire of the open car she was a passenger in. "(News) sources described her death as resulting from strangulation, noting that she was almost decapitated by the sudden tightening of the scarf around her neck".
However, the base 7 timing was wrong for her to have died in this manner. September 2018 (Isadora Duncan, September 1927) would have been the right dating for an event such as this to have happened ... with fatal consequences.
I've said it before, but I'll say it again in another manner. Madonna's NECK REGION has been the focal point of numerous, potentially deadly mishaps in her life. The first time around it is was all fantasy when she played Louise Oriel in her February 22, 1993 music video "Bad Girl." She lies dead in her bed at the beginning and near the end of the video, strangled by a sex killer with her pantyhose. We also briefly see the deadly attack near the end as well. The scenes are quite graphic. As already discussed in text and video above, on May 29, 1995, stalker Robert Dewey Hoskins scaled the fence to her home with the intention of "slitting her throat from ear to ear." On August 16, 2005, Madonna fell from a horse, cracking her ribs and breaking her collarbone. This created a new vector of danger for the singer that was repeated in 2012 and will occur again in 2019. On February 3, 2012, stalker Hoskins escaped from a maximum security mental hospital with the intention, once again, to slice Madonna's throat with a knife, and also the throat of actress Halle Berry. He was captured a week later and returned to the hospital. Now, on February 25, 2015, Madonna has suffered whiplash and near strangulation.
If the trend continues, then she will die from strangulation ... by accident, homicide, or even suicide.
If she is the "blonde elevated" ... a "supreme one" ... who appears in Nostradamus' Quatrain 1.39, then she will likely be found strangled or hanged in her bedroom, either as a victim of someone with murderous intent or else by her own hand. Either is possible since murder is not specifically indicated in the quatrain. The timing would likely be 2016, 2018, 2019 or, if this year's mishap has set yet another new precedent, then in 2022. Pretty soon Madonna is going to run out of years, and will be in danger of strangling to death or by snapping her neck every single year, 24/7.
The car singer and actress Courtney Love was traveling in was attacked by protesters during violent Uber demonstrations in Paris, Lyon, and Marseilles. She tweeted: "They've ambushed our car and are holding our driver hostage. they're beating the cars with metal bats. this is France?? I'm safer in Baghdad . . . François Hollande where are the f*****g police??? is it legal for your people to attack visitors?"
She later escaped a rock hurling lynch mob with the aid of motorcyclists.
That very same day a man was beheaded at a gas factory in Lyon ... by a suspected ISIS terrorist. At first it was linked to the riots by the news; then to terrorism. Wherever there is discord and rioting, violence, looting, mayhem and arson, there is also ISIS fanning the flames. It could just as easily have been Courtney's head.
If Courtney's plight was not enough, it was reported that famed blonde socialite Paris Hilton was pranked on June 26, 2015 into thinking she would die in a plane mishap. While this hardly qualifies as a prediction being fulfilled, it may be an event that is offering insight into what the chances are this event will actually happen by March 2016 or before. In addition, there is another outstanding prediction for 2016 regarding an heiress/socialite being abducted and possibly murdered.
Of course, Paris Hilton need not necessarily be the socialite/heiress in actual danger, but she could be. It is a warning for somebody to watch out!
The overall trend thus far this year, moving towards an actual event next year, suggests a violent death by accident or homicide, even mob violence or an "execution" by terrorists. Thus, decapitation or slitting of the throat by a group such as ISIS is a very real possibility. Murder or accident by strangulation is also suggested. Also, so far, the women who have had potentially deadly mishaps this year have all been blondes, with no exceptions.
The thing that should be additionally worrying is the doubling that occurred in 2002: Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes and Linda Lovelace. Both died exactly the same way and in the same month.
Thus, there could be two victims in 2016. One possible candidate is Britney Spears, who, on February 11, 2016, will be the exact same age Jayne Mansfield was when she died ... age 34. Spears turns 34 on December 2, 2015.
It may only be a coincidence, but the last female celebrity to die on this timeline, in 2009, was actress Brittany Murphy, on December 20, 2009. Very similar first name: Brittany and Britney.
This takes us back to 2002 with the two names Lisa and Linda. But in this case, one similar name would leave off at the end of the last year on the line (2009) and the other similar name would begin the coming year on the line (2016). Goodbye Brittany, hello and goodbye Britney.
Of course, Murphy's death has been ruled as due to pneumonia, although some claim she was poisoned. The persistent declaration of "natural causes" has kept me from actually listing her as a second victim on this timeline for the year 2009. If it turned out she was murdered, then there was yet another doubling that occurred in 2009: Natasha Richardson and Brittany Murphy.
Therefore, it is only speculation that Britney Spears might be one of two possible victims in 2016. Coincidence can play a role in these things, but it certainly need not. No one would have suspected, in advance, that Lisa Lopes and Linda Lovelace would be the victims of 2002 nor would have anyone suspected Natasha Richardson and Brittany Murphy would be in 2009. Then again, Latino names could have linked Selena Quintanilla-Pérez in 1995 to Lisa Lopes in 2002. If 2009 were to play out the same way in 2016, it would be more likely that a British actress would be next, and not an American one. But an American actress or singer (or one who is both) would be the second. UNLESS, the two are switched this time ... with an American female celebrity first early in the year and a British actress near or at the end.
Britney Spears bookended by Brittany Murphy into a tragic death on February 11, 2016 (or thereabouts) a bit of a stretch?
Bear in mind that all the other principal blondes I have been going on about since the early 2000s have all suffered serious mishaps this year: Pamela Anderson, Madonna, Courtney Love, and Paris Hilton. The only one missing from the list, so far, is Britney Spears. Each month she gets closer to her 34th birthday (Jayne Mansfield's age at death) and closer to the target year of 2016.
Thinking more outside the box for the British "Natasha" actress might be British actress and singer/musician Natalia Tena, age 30, of Spanish descent, linking us back not only to Natasha Richardson and Natalie Wood, but also to Spanish Selena and Lisa Lopes.
Also one to consider, due to a potential link to the supernatural or occult dimension, is Ukrainian-born actress Natasha Blasick who has claimed having had sex with a ghost twice in 2014. Blasick starred in Paranormal Activity 2.
The most famous Natasha is Canadian actress and model Natasha Henstridge, age 40, with a slight sound of Richards from Richardson contained in the "stridge" of Henstridge. Although closer in age to 45-year-old Natasha Richardson, Henstridge is a blonde, while Natalia Tena and Natasha Blasick have the darker hair and eyes shared by Richardson and Natalie Wood. Both strike me as being more likely to be in danger next year, but from what cause is difficult to say. Like Natalie Wood, it may well be something quite mysterious.
Perhaps more linked clues and "coincidences" will make themselves known in time.
OUTSIDE OF THE BOX
NEW CLUE: LEONA LEWIS
|UPDATE (8/27/15): This may mean nothing and may be taking a left turn down a wrong-way street. But after reviewing the Celebrity Deaths and Mishaps page for 2009 (there will be seven years between 2009 and 2016), I discovered that on October 14, 2009, British pop singer Leona Lewis was attacked by a crazed man during a signing of her book "Dreams" in London. This is not the only issue. Leona's name has two initials: L.L. Going back seven years earlier to April 2002, we have the car crash mentioned above which took the life of singer Lisa Lopes (L.L. again). Lisa Lopes and Leona Lewis may not sound alike, but there is still something in the cadence that is distressing. I find from time to time that many celebrities who die tragically suffer some sort of mishap in their history prior to their deaths, and often it is seven or fourteen years earlier (or very close to these numbers). Often these mishaps are relatively minor ones, blips on the radar screen. But when the victim of the mishap is found to have some sort of similarity or similarities with someone else on their timeline who has died, the odds increase that seven years or 14 years later that person may have a fatal or near-fatal event. This can also occur in the half-seven interval (which translates into 3 1/2 years, but if not, is rounded up to 4 years or rounded down to 3 years). Such was the case with Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown. She was found nearly drowned in a tub February 1, 2015 ... almost exactly 3 years after her mother died in a tub from drowning and drugs overdose on February 11, 2012. Bobbi Kristina died on July 27 ... almost 3 1/2 years, a half-seven, after her mother (three years, five months, and 16 days). If a half-seven trend from 2013 repeats in 2016, there may be multiple suicides and suicide attempts (Paris Jackson attempted suicide that year, and fatalities from suicide were Mindy McCready, Gia Allemand, and Jiah Khan).|
THE TREND ... THUS FAR ...
IS MURDER OF A FEMALE POP SINGER
Not since 1995 have we witnessed anything like this. As I indicated in the prediction above:
"Fourteen (2 x 7) years after the drowning death of Natalie Wood, on March 31, 1995, a promising young singer/songwriter and actress named Selena (Selena Quintanilla-Pérez) was murdered by her fan club manager Yolanda Saldívar. Selena, who was headed for superstardom, was shot in the back. Selena was often called the Mexican Madonna or the Tejano version of Madonna."
The trend this year began in Japan, not the US:
Japanese singer Mayu Tomita seriously injured after fan stabbing
May 23, 2016
(CNN) Police in Japan have arrested a man in connection with the stabbing of a pop star in Koganei City, western Tokyo.
Tokyo Metropolitan Police arrested Tomohiro Iwazaki, 27, after he allegedly attacked pop idol Mayu Tomita with a knife, stabbing her "several times," according to Tokyo Metropolitan Police.
The attack occurred around 5 p.m. on Saturday.
Media reports suggest she was stabbed over 20 times.
The Japan Times reported that the singer had earlier filed a complaint with Tokyo Metropolitan Police saying that a man named Iwazaki had been "persistently" sending her messages over social media.
The performer was scheduled to give a live performance later that night where she was stabbed, according to her blog.
Tomita remains in critical condition.
Japanese Pop Star Mayu Tomita Stable After Being Stabbed 20 Times By Crazed Fan - June 10, 2016.
I was suspicious this might be a trend developing, but personal problems kept me from posting anything.
Then, the next attack occurred in the United States ... and it was fatal:
'Voice' singer Christina Grimmie dies after shooting at Orlando concert
By Joe Sutton, CNN
Updated 0740 GMT (1540 HKT) June 11, 2016
(CNN) Singer Christina Grimmie, who starred in NBC's "The Voice," died early Saturday after a gunman shot her following a performance in Florida, authorities said.
A man armed with two guns walked up to the 22-year-old singer as she was signing autographs late Friday night and opened fire, Orlando Police spokeswoman Wanda Ford said.
The gunman fatally shot himself after Grimmie's brother tackled him, according to authorities. "Her brother is a hero for saving and stopping him from not hurting anyone else," Ford said.
The singer had performed at The Plaza Live theater Friday night, along with the band Before You Exit, when the shooting broke out.
She was rushed to a hospital in critical condition and died a few hours later.
"It is with a heavy heart that we can confirm that Christina has passed and went home to be with the Lord," her publicist Heather Weiss said in a statement.
"She was shot at her show in Orlando and, unfortunately, didn't survive the gunshot wounds. We ask at this time that you respect the privacy of her family and friends in their time of mourning."
Grimmie finished third on Season 6 of "The Voice." She was discovered on YouTube, where she has a massive following.
Before the shooting, the singer posted video on social media encouraging fans to come out to the theater.
About 60 to 100 people attended the show, Ward said. It's unclear how the gunman got a gun into the venue or whether attendees were checked for weapons.
"We don't know if he was just a crazy fan that followed her on Twitter or on social media," Ward said. "We really don't know ... it's undetermined at this point."
Police have not named the suspect or given a motive for the shooting.
Christina Grimmie's killer was obsessed with her, police say - June 22, 2016.
Christina Grimmie, already a star on YouTube and the TV series, "The Voice," was headed for major international stardom when she was fatally shot ... not by her manager, as was the case with Selena in 1995, 21 (3 x 7) years earlier, but by an obsessed fan. A stalker. Like the one who stabbed Mayu Tomita over 20 times.
Christina Grimmie was the 2016 version of Selena it would appear. Yes, this is a PREDICTION FULFILLED.
Unfortunately, the story, or trend, does not end with the untimely and brutal death of Christina Grimmie.
After the murder of Selena in March 1995, two months later followed the attempted murder of megastar Madonna ... by an obsessed stalker. As I indicated in the prediction above: "Back in 2001, on my original Madonna Prophecy pages, I indicated that if Selena had not been murdered, it is likely it would have been Madonna herself who would have been slain. Events suggest that may have been what was originally destined to occur. Later the same year, on May 29, 1995, a stalker named Robert Dewey Hoskins scaled the wall at the mansion of pop music icon Madonna with the intention of "slitting her throat from ear to ear" ... attempting to make good on a threat he sent her by letter. He was shot in the leg by a security guard, arrested, and tried in January 1996 ... then sentenced to 10 years in prison."
Madonna's photo can be seen to the right of Jayne Mansfield at top.
And yes, a trend has already begun:
'Top Gun' actress Kelly McGillis attacked at her North Carolina home
Maria Puente, USA TODAY 5:43 p.m. EDT June 24, 2016
Top Gun actress Kelly McGillis says she was attacked by a stranger in her North Carolina home last week, so she got a permit to carry a concealed weapon.
McGillis, 58, posted a long message on Facebook on June 17 explaining what happened when she returned to her Hendersonville, N.C., home (after a theological lecture about loving others) to find a light on and her front door unlocked.
She says she was confronted by a screaming woman who accused her of stalking her and attacked her when she ran outside to call 911. She and the woman fought; the woman grabbed her cellphone and threw it on the ground.
"I got worried that there may be someone else in the house with her. We have quite a few guns and lots of ammo and that's when I started to panic," McGillis wrote. "Thinking that if they have one of them I could be shot. I ran out the front door and called 911."
Local TV reports and People reported the Henderson County sheriff's office arrested and charged a 38-year-old woman, Laurence Marie Dorn, with second-degree burglary, misdemeanor larceny, misdemeanor stalking, assault and battery and interfering with emergency communication. She is being held in the Henderson County Jail under a $60,000 bond. There was no phone listing for her.
McGillis writes that she was left scratched and bruised but is otherwise OK. She says she got a concealed-carry gun permit to protect herself after the incident.
"They rushed me through the conceal and carry course so I am armed and ready," she posted Thursday. "The Henderson County Sheriff's department has been absolutely the greatest. Here's my first target practice. I only missed five from the center out of thirty rounds. All hit the target."
She expressed concern for a little girl who was with the woman.
"Mental illness takes many hostages. I don't know her name...but I would like to asked that you pray for her and her mother," McGillis wrote.
Later, she also posted a long essay on the reasons, including being the victim of other crimes, that she got a concealed-carry permit despite advice not to.
"For those of you on my feed that are telling me that getting a cc permit is not the best choice for me to make, well let me fill you in on a few things that have lead me to this decision. Which by the way, I have struggled over for a long long time. Not being pro gun fanatic. When I was 12 I was gang raped by three men."
The National Rifle Association cheered her on its Facebook page. "Not willing to be a victim again, actress Kelly McGillis has decided to exercise her Second Amendment rights, and protect herself by getting a concealed carry permit," it said.
McGillis is best known for playing a flight instructor and Tom Cruise's love interest in 1986's Top Gun.
Kelly McGillis is age 58. Pop icon Madonna is age 57, but will turn 58 on August 16, 2016 (81616). That will be about the same time, roughly two months, after the murder of Christina Grimmie as it was following the murder of Selena in 1995.
Of course it could be another close call like May 1995 ... or someone else who is super-famous. Like former American Idol singer Kelly Clarkson. From "The Voice" to "American Idol"?
Some of the other possibilities are discussed above.

Nostradamus, Quatrain 1.81 ~

separated: Their fate
will be division upon departure, Kappa, Theta, Lambda, dead, banished, scattered.
NEW PREDICTION: 11/26/14 -- DESCRIPTION: 11/20/15: Base 7 dating: January-April 2016.
The precedent for the predicted February 2015 explosion of SpaceShipTwo on reentry was the Columbia Space Shuttle Disaster of February 1, 2001. The prediction was fulfilled three months early when SpaceShipTwo exploded on reentry Halloween, October 31, 2014, killing the pilot and seriously injuring the co-pilot. I still insist, if such test flights had not been made, that a planned civilian flight with a number of celebrities on board, including Lady Gaga, scheduled for February 2015 would have caused their deaths in the same manner. Because Gaga was planning on singing in space, depending on what song she sang, this could have made her fiery death the "fall of Lucifer" prophecy found in the Book of Isaiah, Chapter 14.
No "Lucifer scenario" is likely in 2016 since all flights will be test flights, no celebrities ... female or otherwise.
That's right. Virgin Galactic is at it again, planning more test flights in 2016 with a possible projected civilian space flight sometime in 2017. Talk about tempting the fates. Then Lady Gaga will have her chance. Maybe by that time occult singing sensations Katy Perry and Madonna will join the crew. Three Lucifers for the price of one!
Currently there is a six-man or seven-man crew planned, headed by the new arrival of a female commander. It being reproted that Virgin Galactic has hired Kelly Latimer, a combat veteran and test pilot for NASA, Boeing and the U.S. Air Force, as the first woman to join its six-man pilot corps. It is not clear to me if Kelly makes the six-man crew number as a seven-man crew or if her addition makes her as one of the six.
Having a female crew member on board the test flights, especially one as prominent as Kelly Latimer, is bad business as two out of three NASA space disasters involved high profile female crew members: Christa McAuliffe, who died in the 1986 Challenger Disaster, and Laurel Clark, who was one of the doomed crew members in the 2001 Columbia Disaster.
Despite this, the precedent for another space-related tragedy in 2016 is from the pre-lunar landing days of the Apollo program. The date was January 27, 1967, and the space vehicle was Apollo 1. I'll now quote Wikipedia:
Apollo 1 (initially designated AS-204) was the first manned mission of the U.S. Apollo manned lunar landing program. The planned low Earth orbital test of the Apollo Command/Service Module never made its target launch date of February 21, 1967, because a cabin fire during a launch rehearsal test on January 27 at Cape Kennedy Air Force Station Launch Complex 34 killed all three crew membersCommand Pilot Virgil I. "Gus" Grissom, Senior Pilot Edward H. White II, and Pilot Roger B. Chaffeeand destroyed the Command Module (CM). The name Apollo 1, chosen by the crew, was officially retired by NASA in commemoration of them on April 24, 1967.
Thus, the scenario now is for an explosion to occur at take off or very early in the ascent stage in January 2016. However, it is being reported that the new SpaceShip Two will not be completed until February 2016, so it appears the month of January will be uneventful. Even so, January 27, 1967 was very close to February 1967 ... only five days before. Thus, technically our revised vector would now be February-April 2016. Of course, one never knows if the ship will be completed ahead of schedule or if some other mishap, a possible warning, may occur in January. So best to keep the original dating for the "window of opportunity" being January-April 2016.
Why is April 2016 at the other end of the "window of opportunity?" That is due to a Russian space disaster that occurred the same year, 1967, in the month of April:
Soyuz 1 (Union 1) was a manned spaceflight of the Soviet space program. Launched into orbit on 23 April 1967 carrying cosmonaut Colonel Vladimir Komarov, Soyuz 1 was the first crewed flight of the Soyuz spacecraft. The mission plan was complex, involving a rendezvous with Soyuz 2 and an exchange of crew members before returning to Earth. However, the launch of Soyuz 2 was called off due to thunderstorms. The flight was plagued with technical issues, and Komarov was killed when the descent module crashed into the ground due to a parachute failure. This was the first in-flight fatality in the history of spaceflight.
Thus, our window of opportunity for a 2016 disaster is January-April 2016.
The Apollo 1 explosion provides precedent for an early "take-off" explosion. On the other hand, the Soyuz 1 disaster creates precedent for yet another reentry tragedy. Of the two, the early "take-off" scenario is more likely since the crew is not Russian.
|The inclusion of Kelly Latimer
increases the chances that this accident will be far
worse than what happened in October 2014.
Instead of one dead pilot, there may six or seven crew members killed in an exploding ball of fire.
If the Nostradamus quatrain quoted at top is correct, there may be as many as nine victims.
Kelly Latimer may even be the mysterious "Kappa, Lambda, Theta" of Nostradamus prophecy.
The "Kappa" is for the leading "K" in Kelly.
There are three "Lambda"s: a double lambda in Kelly and a lambda to start off her second name, Latimer.
The "Theta" sets off the rest of her last name: Latimer.
Why did I include an "explosion in space" as a possibility in my prediction for February 2015 (fulfilled October 2014) and have done again for January-April 2016 (and will likely include for January 2017)? After all, there has never been a disaster or tragedy in space before.
It is precisely for that reason: because there has never been an explosion of a space vehicle in space itself before. It has no precedent. Yet it is bound to happen one day, sooner or later, as long as manned space flight programs continue. Every future base 7 vector based on Apollo 1, Challenger, and Columbia must contain the suspicion that an explosion in space may occur.
It would be folly indeed if another SpaceShip Two disaster does occur early next year, and afterwards more test flights follow, successfully in those cases, with the idea of a civilian flight still being attempted in 2017. It will almost guarantee the most horrifying air disaster for civilians, including many prominent celebrities, since the fiery destruction of the passenger airship LZ 129 Hindenburg ("the Hindenburg") on May 6, 1937. Something also to keep in mind when May 2021 rolls around.

Largest Anti-Nuclear Protests in History Take Place in Europe and America
NEW PREDICTION: 12/6/14 -- DESCRIPTION: 12/19/15: Base 7 dating: April 2016.
Some events are becoming quite unremarkable, not because they are not of major importance, but because they are happening so frequently. School shootings and mass shootings in other public places are a good example of events that occur multiple times every year when there was once a time a singular event of this kind would be one of the major news stories of the year, even of the decade. To say that mass shootings are now commonplace is a sad commentary on our times.
Mass protests are also beginning to fall into this category. Almost every year there are notable mass protests in either the United States or Europe or Asia (or all three). They are not over the same issues of course, some are anti-government, some are anti-austerity, some are anti-war, some are anti-immigration, some are anti-racism, and so on. But there really hasn't been a major anti-nuclear rally anywhere in quite some time, as can be seen by the image used above from 1983 (most available images are quite old). I suspect that is about to change now that Russia and the United States are gearing up for a possible nuclear war. It stands to reason that if the world really is moving in the direction of World War III that there will be unprecedented numbers of people across the planet demonstrating against not only the building up of nuclear weapons arsenals and possible preparations to use them, but against the potential for global war itself.

Unrest and Riots Break Out in London
NEW PREDICTION: 11/26/14 -- DESCRIPTION: 2/2/16: Base 7 dating: April 2016.
I decided to use an image collage (above) of one of the more memorable recent examples of this.
In all honesty, and I have been following this for some time, the Brits can end up rioting, looting, and setting fire to cars, buildings and people for any one of a million reasons. Who knows why this will happen? Unrest over war in the Middle East. Backlash retaliation against immigrants. Good ol' anti-austerity. It's a king's ransom to whoever figures this one out (not that I'm paying it, I can hardly afford to survive on what I make). Lately this is almost an annual event, and when that happens base 7 gets thrown right out the window because a saturation point is reached.
Other events that have reached saturation point: Israel and Gaza wars, Israel firing on Lebanon or Syria for a one day scare story, ISIS executions, school shootings, mass shootings anywhere, terrorism, stupid celebrities killing themselves or risking death in other ways, and also terrible weather.
At this rate, pretty soon I'll be out of business.
