Thing about Nostradamus and his supposed visions is that it is all well and good being clever in retrospect. I know that his 'visions' were of the future but what happens is that something big and bad occurs like WW2 or 9/11 or the souffle does not rise and then the usual pundits scour his quatrains for something that vaguely fits the bill and declare how clever Nostradamus must have been, and, by extension, themselves for having spotted it.
So how about
"The Third World War, which will last three years and seven months will occur with an invasion (of Europe) by a combined army of Russians and Moslems The ungodly alliance of Marxist and Mohammedan will succeed where Hitler failed".
That appeared in the Sunday Telegraph (21st Aug) in their "In this paper thirty Years ago" snip.
We may not be that much worried about Russians now and we were not the least bit worried about Moslems then.
But we are worried about Marxists, albeit internal traitors, hiding behind whatever labels and Extremist Moslems (as very distinct from devout Moslems) intent upon our demise.
