Baba Vanga – by Attila – (15.5.09)
Prophets there are a dime a dozen, but there’s only one Baba Vanga (1911-1996), the great Bulgarian clairvoyant, blind since the age of 12, whose fame is widespread in the Slavic countries, but who remains largely unknown in other parts of the world. Vanga was unique in that she set out a whole programme of events to come, gave them approximate dates and coolly predicted the very year in which the end of the world would occur. For us, living today, that date is nothing to be feared since it is projected to take place in 5079, some two thousand years hence. Of greater interest to our contemporaries, however, is Baba Vanga’s clear indications concerning a Third World War which she, in her wisdom, decreed would break out in October-November 2010.
Vangela Pandeva Dimitrova (31Jan11-11Aug96)
Since we are already labouring mightily to get through the month of May 2009, this particular prophecy deserves our greatest attention. According to what was written down at Vanga’s dictation, she herself being only semi-literate, these particular hostilities will begin as conventional warfare, then rapidly turn nuclear before ending with recourse to chemical weapons. One can but wonder whether that mysterious thing known as Swine Flu is being promoted with that purpose in mind. This horrendous clash betweens humans should come to an end by October 2014. Before looking at the rest of Vanga’s tantalising predictions for the 21st century, perhaps a word here about her accuracy.
The case of the Kursk prophecy, made in 1980, is often cited to show how reliable Vanga was in what she foresaw. That story goes something like this: “At the turn of the century, in August of 1999 or 2000, Kursk will be covered with water, and the whole world will be weeping over it.” It was assumed that Kursk referred to the place of that name.. It turned out, however, that by Kursk Vanga probably meant the Russian nuclear submarine which sank in an accident (or was made to go under?) in August 2000. To Vanga is also attributed a prediction about the 9/11 incident in the United States. As early as 1989, Vanga apparently burst out in terror and warning, saying: “The American brethren will fall after being attacked by the steel birds. The wolves will be howling in a bush, and innocent blood will be gushing.” Now since we all know how the Twin Towers were actually demolished, the “steel birds” seems to be an unwarranted flight of the imagination. But who’s to quarrel with prophesying clairvoyants? One last example: For 2008, Vanga predicted assassination attempts on four heads of state. Some of these might have taken place and, since they were only attempts, hushed up consequently. One incident involving Nicolas Sarkozy at Ben-Gurion Airport might be regarded as an attempt to assassinate. On the other hand, perhaps the time frame was slightly off and we may expect to see such news filtering out during the course of 2009. Apart from aborted assassination, the actual trigger for the war should be some event to take place in Hindustan or, some say, Indonesia.
By 2011, according to Vanga, nuclear fallout will have killed off much of the vegetation in the northern hemisphere and destroyed a great deal of animal and human life. This will be the moment that those perfidious Muslims (all suitably kitted out in anti-radiation suits and masks, no doubt) will choose to attack shattered Europe and its few survivors through chemical means. The perfidious Muslim, a throwback to the never-to-be forgotten Crusades, we already know well from interpretations of Nostradamus. Vanga having been born within the Ottoman Empire may well have had reasons of her own to attribute villainy to the Muslims. It goes without saying that the descendents of the Ottoman Empire have long been awaiting their day of vengeance, though to see modern Turks with their NATO-leanings and their cuddling up to Europe over such matters as the Nabucco pipeline or entry to EU, makes it difficult to believe they qualify as the right Muslims to undertake the conquest of nuclear-devastated Europe. But Vanga is a seer, after all, not a smug mainstream media journalist. Her pronouncements require no justification. Simply faith.
2014 will bring not only the end of WWIII, it will also see skin cancer and other skin diseases among the victims of chemical warfare. For 2016, Vanga apparently imagined a lonely Europe, that is one with a zero population, something demographics have also been drumming into our ears for ages. It is only by 2018 that Vanga acknowledges China has become a world power with the support of other nations presently at the bottom of the pecking order. In 2023, the earth should have tilted somewhat, bringing about slight changes in its orbit. 2025 will still find Europe under-populated.. But by 2028, things should be looking up. A new energy source through thermonuclear reaction should be available and hunger will finally be eliminated. For this auspicious year, Vanga even sees earth sending a manned flight to Venus. In 2033, our old foe global warming makes a reappearance. Polar ice begins to melt and oceans rise. Ten years from that date, namely in 2043, we have Muslim rule in Europe and a thriving world economy (no wonder!). Cloning will be all the rage in 2046, the first step towards immortality. Then the United States will take a deep breath and by 2066, the “Muslim Rome” will be attacked by the brave USans with the help of a new weapon, namely instant freezing. I take it the white race will win over those po-faced Muslim hordes.
Four more dates remain to be mentioned in Vanga’s vision for the 21st century:
2076 – The classless society will become a reality and communism will become the economic and political system of the world.
2084 – Nature will be fully regenerated.
2088 – A new disease will appear involving instant aging.
2097 – The rapid aging disease will be overcome.
After having dealt with the European continent, US, the Muslims, China and the developing world (Africa?), one answer we still await with a hint of anxiety: and what of Russia? What role did Vanga allot to this major country? A prediction exists which goes: “Everything melts away like ice yet the glory of Vladimir, the glory of Russia, are the only things that will remain, Russia will not only survive, it will dominate the world.” At a time when the Russian Security Council, led by Prime Minister Putin, has issued a warning that the possibility of a war within a decade over control of the Arctic’s huge unexploited oil and gas reserves is certainly on the cards, Vanga’s words resound with special poignancy.
