I find it funny that people are investing so much time and energy into something bad happening.
It makes me laugh.
1. Turmoil coming to the Kremlin: Russia's clan wars are about to begin. Catch up on the background and issues here. In particular, watch Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin closely, as he's the one deciding which specific personalities and companies to target. Also keep an eye on any moves and statements by Russian President Dmitri Medvedev and Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, who are laying the groundwork for the potentially monumental changes to the Russian economy, security apparatus and even the Kremlin itself.
2. The continuing U.S.-Russian struggle: This past week U.S. Vice President Joe Biden essentially told the Central Europeans that the United States would support any actions they might take against Russian-backed regimes to their east. We would be stunned if the Russians didn't do something equally interesting and inflammatory in return. One obvious possibility is providing more backing for Iran. Iran is trying to wriggle out of a proposal put forth by the P-5+1 that would see the bulk of the uranium it has enriched shipped out of the country. The bottom line is that whatever actions Moscow takes regarding Iran will be designed exclusively to rattle the Americans.
3. Iran and the IAEA: Iran will try to use this weekend's International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspection of its Qom enrichment facility to give the impression that it is still cooperating in the nuclear negotiations, but Israel's patience for Iran's delay tactics is wearing thin. We will have to pay especially close attention to extent to which the Israeli and American reactions diverge in the week ahead.
DEBKAfile's military sources point out that even the UN watchdog visits may lead nowhere, depending on how much access they are allowed to the facilities tunneled deep in a mountain near Qom and how much incriminating evidence was removed in the two weeks since Tehran approved the visit. Some sources in Washington take the existence of this hidden plant as evidence that Iran has got several more secret facilities running - and not just for enrichment but possibly even for covertly constructing nuclear bombs and warheads. Reporting from US sources on Iran's nuclear program tends to be conflicting, fashioned to fit the policy of the moment. For instance, the Qom tunnel hiding place which the US president "first revealed" in Pittsburgh on Sept. 26 was in fact known to intelligence services, including the CIA, as far back as 2004.

I don't really think you can trust any prediction because well...most of the time they are wrong. Plus I believe Timewave Zero, Webbot are all just a big crap of BS. It can predict all it wants but things change everyday.
Ps. It's the 26th. Nothing has happened as of my post.
