If we read Siener van Rensburg's prophecy about the great black leader's death and period of mourning, it is difficult to be certain if some of the more disturbing elements occur during the period of mourning, after the funeral ends the period of mourning, or both. One of these predictions concern "three pots boiling rapidly in Europe." One of these pots that may indeed be the revolution in Ukraine, which began even before Nelson Mandela's death, is still in progress at this writing. Ukraine's turmoil has attracted emissaries from the EU and the United States, especially in light of the president's further strengthening ties between Kiev and Moscow. Senator John McCain has even sounded off in a worrisome militant tone concerning US support for the pro-EU demonstrators in Ukraine and defiance of the Russian Federation.
During the ten days of mourning for Mandela, another pot began to boil over: this time in Italy. Called the "Pitchfork" protests, anti-austerity demonstrators began marching throughout Italy's countryside and towns around December 7, stopping vehicular traffic, commercial and non-commercial, and blocking rail traffic as well, stopping trains. The "pitchfork" nickname arose from the large number of farmers who took part in the initial protests.
Since then the demonstrations have moved into the cities, leading to violent confrontations between the police and protesters in the major cities of Rome, Venice, and Turin. Now the rioters have demanded the resignation of the government to their list of demands. This has caused many officials to express alarm: Interior Minister Angelino Alfano voiced concerns that the unrest could "lead to a spiral of rebellion against national and European institutions."
Thus, two out of three pots are now boiling rapidly within Europe: Ukraine and Italy. What shall the third pot be? Or Will Van Rensburg's prophecy fail to deliver?
This ongoing confrontation in the East China Sea may well be yet another of Van Rensburg's predictions approaching realization which states: "Then comes a round tank in the east and fire falls out of it." Perhaps as good a description of a nuclear naval battle in the Pacific as any, considering the year of the prophecy was 1922.
While US Senator John McCain ratchets up the rhetoric against Russia over the Ukraine demonstrations, Vice President Joe Biden has been fraying the nerves of the Chinese leadership during a recent visit to Beijing. Meantime, China maintains a no-fly zone over the island waters, warning off commercial as well as non-commercial air flights.
Despite the fact that racial violence or strikes have not yet occurred in South Africa since Nelson Mandela's funeral, it is clear we are compelled now to give Siener van Rensburg's overall prophecy a little more time ...
