Yeah, politicians and sports references are always open to question here, but that things happen internationally during world sports events may not be as crazy. The whole attention of the world is riveted in one of two places right now, the Gulf Coast and the World Cup. If and when we would choose to act without international support (except Israel) it has some merit. Like I said, I hope it's another false alarm/ misguided warning, but we can't take it for granted that it is.

Oh geez another one prophetic prediction this time coming from a former dictator, how can this be untrue ? Really, arent peoples tired of posting these predictions post on these board.

I'm still waiting for someone to post something that will actually happen, oh wait it's not gonna happen because nobody can predict the future.

Its really Really obvious when someone jumps straight into a thread and posts without first reading the news stories/links provided.

If you had done so you'd see that no one is trying to "predict the future" with a dark room some incense and a crystal ball.

Go bash on a real "ATS prediction date fantasy" but do them the favor of at least reading the provided material before doing so. I'm sure you'll find plenty amongst the topics.

You need to go back and check the stories before the invasion of Afghanistan and after 9/11. The Taliban never "refused" to give up bin Laden, they asked for evidence he was involved and if we could give it, they'd extradite him. We couldn't, because it didn't exist, which is why the FBI still won't add 9/11 to his wanted charges even to this day. Even they think the videos purporting to be him "admitting" his complicity or happiness about 9/11 were faked.

The overlooked, and most important quote from Castro's first letter.....

"As for me, to advance a hypothesis would be pure science fiction".

I'm not a big soccer fan, but I do know a ton of people, especially Europeans who are. So I think for the rest of the world, the World Cup would be a distraction. We've got the Gulf blowout to think about, and don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that's a purposeful distraction. In fact if it distracts anything it may be our plans to hit Iran, but I do think if what's on the table is a quick strike on Iran, the distraction of the World Cup may be being considered. That said, I don't anything done against Iran really can be done in a short time span except an air strike or maybe a JSOC operation. Petraeus has ordered US special forces to begin scouting targets in Iran.

Does bring up that possibility too.

Castro is NOT predicting war before the World Cup ends.

Clearly, he states that during such an event (that keeps millions, even billions of people pre-occupied) would be a good time to strike ... this is a lesson in diversionary tactics from Castro, not a prophecy.

He also talks about Iran's strength.

People come on here and constantly say "Oh yeah, this country or that country would win hands down!"

Both Israel and the US KNOW this would not be an easy war. That's why we've seen "color revolutions", offers from the US to supply nuclear tech and enriched uranium to Iran, etc for the past several years.

The game is this ... economic alliance is the preferred outcome (think Diary of an Economic Hitman). If that fails, the military option happens.

Lastly, I'd say this ...

Castro is an old man. Old men have old friends. Old friends tell each other #.

But maybe more than that, you can't do what Castro has done without knowing a thing or two about human nature and how the world works.

Honestly, this isn't an attempt to revitalize what I think is at least a mostly played out thread I started, but there is quite of bit of background material relevant to this thread on it on the build-up in the Gulf and it's not a very long thread after being up nearly a month to scan through it.

There's several links to articles that refer to our current build-up in Iran in both the OP and subsequent posts. I think that the sum of these are what Castro is thinking about in his "warning" of a possible nuclear war. We are definitely tightening the screws on Iran and preparing for a possible action.

I'm hoping this is old old school political maneuvering, but it does raise concerns that something's afoot.

This is an excellent point and is the way politics works often times in the world. Castro may have "inside" information and is trying to wake us up to a very dangerous situation.

Yeah, we have to keep in mind that Castro is tight with Chavez and Chavez is tight with Iran ... and they all have friends in many other countries

My opinion of Castro is that he is a lunatic. Of course i have little to base this on that is factual, as it is more than anything based on media, which is about all i have to go on.

Having said that, it isn't like it was when i was a kid. "Mutually assured destruction" was what gave us sanity and peace of mind. The Russians are cold blooded, but not crazy.

Muslims? Yeah, they are crazy. And so are the people leading the worlds nations today.

Sorry but muslims are crazy just sounds like more conditioning by your media to me, the same with Castro.
The difference between your leader and Castro is that your leader can hide his human rights violations.

No argument about Castro.

But the Muslim nations behave in a manner that leads me to conclude that there is an insanity at play there. be it induced by religious fever, or poisoning/malnutrition....something is wrong with the societal beliefs.

I think its a nurturing thing personally. To me God or Religion have nothing to do with it. If you grow up where they do, being a follower is probably a must since the day you could walk and after a time you learn their ways and know your boundaries. Nothing else influences you, so its life for you as you know it. Some cling to these beliefs in their heart, others question it but dont change. Very few actually look deeper for the truth.

Same with us westerners, we grow up with TV, Video Games, Money, Cars, etc.. and we learn to except them as our boundaries.

I admit our side of the fence is way better, but i am biased. Maybe i am devoid of spirituality (i think thats a load of BS but thats another topic) and morals who knows. What i do know is that conditioning of a human being plays a large role in who they become.

Nature does play a part, but its small in comparison to Nurturing IMO.

If we are not in allying with "religious" fanatics, then why are we supporting Saudi Arabia?

Because Prince Bandar and George W. Bush were "united" in an ancient desert ceremony still practised by the Saudi royal family?

Erm...*cough* or it is simply one of the mysteries of the CIA and how it tries to run the world and farm mankind.

Interesting information. It's not hard to see how its possible.

I still think Castro has been dead for a while, tho.

Hi all,

Give the Iranian people two hours to evacuate--south. Think their kinda on our side? But their civilians just the same.

Indeed, and he also fair relations with Lula or at least some of his people in Brazil. I agree that Chavez is a very likely source for any info coming his way.

Also, Cuban intelligence is pretty good and he no doubt has many sympathetic sources in the US, including former CIA guys who might be willing to leak something to him if it was viewed as a benefit to the US and/or the world and as far as a potential nuclear strike, I could see that as an insanity they might try to derail.

Whatever. Why Castro is not in the madhouse I do not know. I am unnconcerned, because of his lack of general sanity.

I agree that Castro is shall we say not in touch with reality.


What makes my hair stand up on the back of my neck is this is not normal behaviour from even Castro.

You have to ask what would his motives be for this sequence of open letters. Would it not fit that he has some information and is following true to his form to act as in the only way he can and that is to blow the lid.

Wouldn't it make him a Hero if what he suggests is in fact truth?

I certainly would listen to him with great interest and trepidation in future if his words turn out to be truth.

Who knows, Castro might actually be on our side (side of humanity) after all!!

One thing is for certain, we have all the elements there for an explosion in the Middle East. Several things have gone past serious recently.

I'm 36 and have been following the whole Middle East crisis all my life, I predicted that this current situation would play out in not too dissimilar ways to the scenario suggested by Castro.

I believe this current sequence of events was set in motion with the assassination of Arafat all those years ago and we are about to enter the next phase of the plan.

For all those that say USA is too thinly spread... Have misunderstood the troop placements. The reason we are in Iraq and Afghanistan and supply and support Israel is because all those countries surround Iran. The entire infrastructure needed to wage war with Iran is in place.

The final pieces of the board are being put in place as we speak with the Naval activities and build up in the middle east and off the shores of north Korea.

The western coalition learned their lessons well after the WWII, not to be caught off guard against opportunist countries.

This war is unavoidable, history teaches us that. Do you really think the top Commanders do not study their history?

The world changes and those that can adapt survive those that cannot will perish.


Brilliant, really, and nothing to add except to say that he really IS on our side. Why do you think they hate him? Why do you think Cuba is the only country US citizens are forbidden to visit without being on an 'official' tour. Not because we wouldn't be safe, but because we would experience a world without commercialism, a world where no one is homeless and doctors and politicians make less than some simple workers. It's not perfect. It's not paradise, but simple people are not made to feel worthless or rot in the streets like they do in most cities. But I digress. I believe Fidel DOES know something and he's playing his last card, hoping it might be enough. That he is playing this card leads me to conclude that there is a real threat. Fidel's favorite book is Don Quixote. He's used to the windmills and lost causes. I wish him luck.

Well im certainly not going to run around worried about WW3 breaking out in the next few weeks or months because Fidel Castro said so!! I'll leave that to you worry-warts. Have fun-see ya next year when you're on here posting about some other "imminent" event.

posted on Jul, 5 2010 @ 10:19 PM
These writings by Castro are called reflections by some but to me they are just ramblings of an idiot. and probably not even written by him anyway!

Might be a little of both. I'm not much of an "illuminati" conspiracy fan (at least not yet) but elites are linked together and bond each other personally to one another in what seems to most of us here as anachronistic and esoteric rituals that serve as a kind of a "mutually assured" destruction bond. "I won't tell on you, unless you betray me." I'm agnostic, but not dead set against a larger Luciferian bond among world elites which, if not the illuminati, might look very much like them, BTW. Skull and Bones is a very good example of this and a very good point. Money and power are the ties that bind in those circles and I believe all kinds of fraternities, secret societies, etc. are more common than not in the upper classes.
