In the link you provided it says ..
As it flares out of the distant Oort Cloud, the newly discovered comet C/2012 S1 (ISON) appears to be heading on a trajectory that could make for one of the most spectacular night-sky events in living memory.
Then the article goes on to say..
Astronomers predict that the comet will pass just 1.16 million miles from the Sun as it swings around its perihelion, or closest approach. (This may seem like a lot, but remember—the Sun is big. If we were to scale the Sun down to the size of Earth, the comet would pass well within the orbits of dozens of satellites.)
So.. could mess up our satellites huh? That would not be good!
Makes me wonder what else the Oort cloud will spit out in coming years?
And then of course we have a do not worry disclaimer at the end.
Of course, comets have a habit of not living up to expectations. This one could be sucked into the Sun during its close approach, or not grow as much of a tail as astronomers hope.
As to the OP....
We know the Quatrains read that a comet is to pass by.
Mabus??? Who knows.... Unless it is that guy in the link I provided. Ray Mabus, Secretary of the Navy and Middles East stuff... I don't know. Maybe he will be sending us to war? Im not sure what his position entails, don't know much about him either but I do know if he falls dead before this comet or any big comet my ears may perk up!
edit on 27-12-2012 by MamaJ because: (no reason given)
After it loops around the Sun and forms this tail, the comet should then pass relatively close to Earth—not near enough to cause any worry, but close enough to put on a great show. Viewers in the Northern Hemisphere will get the best view as the comet blooms in the weeks approaching Christmas 2013. The comet could grow as bright as the full moon.
SYDNEY: An asteroid the size of a city block is due to come whizzing past Earth in February next year, closer than any other of its size in recorded history, according to astronomers.

You know, mabus he is, and mabus he isn't.
