A world authority on prophecy and Nostradamus, John Hogue discussed the accelerated sequence of events which he thinks indicate World War III has begun.The following Nostradamus quatrain is one that he presented to support his conclusion:In the year when Saturn and Mars are equally fiery,The air is very dry, a long comet:From hidden fires a great place burns with heat,Little rain, hot wind, wars and raids.Both Saturn and Mars are astrologically in the fire sign of Leo and we are currently undergoing an intense heat wave, he noted. And the long comet could actually be a description of the missiles that are being launched between Israel and Lebanon. However, World War III, as Hogue sees it, is different than the previous world wars. It is more like a "thirty year" war characterized by flare ups that explode, diminish and flare up again. He sees the civil war in Iraq and the Ayatollahs in Iran as trigger points for radical Islam, and sources for escalating the conflict in the Middle East. Biography:John Hogue writes on the subjects of the occult, parapsychology, mysticism and prophecy. He is considered a world authority on Nostradamus and is the best-selling author of numerous books, including Nostradamus: The Complete Prophecies and Nostradamus: The New Millennium, The Millennium Book of Prophecy, The Last Pope, and Messiahs: The Visions and Prophecies for the Second Coming. His work has brought him international acclaim. He has been published in 18 languages and sold over one million copies worldwide. In addition, he has appeared on over 700 radio and television shows on three continents. WikipediaWorld War III (also called WWIII or the Third World War) is a hypothetical conflict that denotes a successor to World War II (1939--1945). The conflict would be on a global scale, with common speculation that it would probably be a nuclear war and devastating in nature.In the wake of World War I, World War II, the commencement of the Cold War and the development, testing and use of nuclear weapons, there was early widespread speculation as to the next global war. This war was anticipated and planned for by military and civil authorities, and explored in fiction in many countries. Concepts ranged from the limited use of atomic weapons, to the destruction of the planet.Alternative viewsNorman Podhoretz has suggested that the Cold War can be identified as World War III because it was fought, although by proxy, on a global scale, with the main combatants, the United States and later NATO, and the Soviet Union and Warsaw Pact countries providing political, military and economic support while not engaging in direct combat.Eliot Cohen, the director of strategic studies at the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University, declared in The Wall Street Journal, a month after the September 11 attacks, that the struggle against terrorism was more than a law-enforcement operation, and would require military conflict beyond the invasion of Afghanistan. Cohen, like Marenches, considered World War III to be history. "A less palatable but more accurate name is World War IV," he wrote. "The Cold War was World War III, which reminds us that not all global conflicts entail the movement of multi-million-man armies, or conventional front lines on a map." In a 2006 interview, U.S. President George W. Bush labeled the ongoing War on Terror as "World War III"On the July 5, 2011 edition of Fox News' The Big Story, host John Gibson interviewed Michael Ledeen, resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), and said "some are calling the global war on terror something else, something more like World War III." But Ledeen responded that "it's more like World War IV because there was a Cold War, which was certainly a world war." Ledeen added that "probably the start of it [World War IV] was the Iranian revolution of 1979." Similarly, on the May 24, 2011 edition of CNBC's Kudlow and Company, host Lawrence Kudlow, discussing a book by former deputy Under-Secretary of Defense Jed Babbin, said "World War IV is the terror war, and war with China would be World War V.
