Thanks for replying. Yes, many quatrains are ambiguous (I still haven't figured out what some of them mean) & a great many only seem to have been
figured as accurate after a historical event has occurred. Some regard Nostradamus as an unreliable prophet because so many of the prophecies as
interpreted have not yet happened. It doesn't mean they will... but, it doesn't mean they won't.
There are as many translations as well as interpretations as there are translators. I like to think that each one of us is trying to do the best we
can with the information that we have. In the case of prophecies that seem to have occurred, it is best to remember that especially in the case of
wars, history is written by the winners. It isn't always easy to find out what really happened without reliable first hand accounts.
There are dozens more quatrains related to this thread for which there are no room here. In order to begin to see the scope of things I had to
translate every one of the 942 prophecies in the ten Centuries, which took years to do & research. That is what it took to begin to see which of the
jumbled quatrains began to link up & relate to each other. All of it would fill at least one book, far too much for an ATS thread. In the case of
Eastern Europe, it is part of a sequence of events. Of course there isn't a war in the present day, but President Clinton definitely started one in
1998 because of what was called "ethnic cleansing" in Kosovo, amongst other things, going on in that region. How long have you lived in Europe? All
of that is in recent memory, & I believe NATO peacekeepers- mainly French & German troops- are still there. In a nutshell, Nostradamus predicted that
three events would lead up to the third world war- the conflict in Eastern Europe in 1998, war in what was once the Persian Empire (Iraq, Afghanistan,
Pakistan, & Iran), & war in North Africa- most notably Libya. Libya has a navy. NATO is presently all over that country.
For quatrain 3:4, there was a LOT of fighting going on in the Araxum's Border area during the second world war. Hitler was bound & determined to
capture Azerbaijan, & all of the oil & gas resources it has, in a huge military campaign called Barbarossa. The city of Baku on the Caspian Sea is a
huge magnet for international investment in the present day. Hitler failed in this campaign; the Russians are fierce fighters & beat him back harshly.
Two different men I once worked for served in the Allied forces in WW II & were stationed in Northeast Iran to guard Nazi prisoners.
1:55 & 1:70: as I write, Russia has just announced that they are arming & readying their missile systems in order to protect Syria from the US
missiles that could be launched from Europe. There are already threads here on ATS about it (Russia Retaliates Against US: Puts Radar Station On
Combat Alert, amongst others) so I won't go into that. That whole area of the Mid-East has just gone on alert.
You are of course entitled to your opinion & I started the thread so that it could be discussed. If what I've told you doesn't help let's just
agree to disagree.
