TAIWAN INVADED and CONQUERED BY CHINA
Catastrophic Destruction to US Battleships and Aircraft Carriers
US warships will come to the aid of Taipei, but will be no match against Beijing's anti-ship missiles, swarms of fighter jets, and submarine fleets. Even the huge aircraft carriers will be extinguished like a snuffed match by tactical nuclear missiles. It will be horrible to see. Likewise, any other naval vessels from allied nations that attempt to accompany the US fleet like Australia or Japan will be totally destroyed. No more than two Chinese battleships will be damaged; one totally destroyed and the other only partially.
Russia, still an ally of China, will react with contempt and horror at this wanton destruction and conquest. The alliance will quickly grow cold and Russia will begin to guard with greater concern the frontiers and borders it shares with China, even some of the former Soviet states adjacent to it, especially since a recent skirmish on a border region. What seemed a minor event will now loom large to those in the Kremlin in the aftermath of China's ruthless display of power and arrogance.
By March 2025, Russia will declare war on China and a protracted conflict will begin that will continue until 2037.
ANTIPOPE and THE GREAT SCHISM
Sept mois sans plus obtiendra prelature, par son deces grand schisme sera naistre:
Sept mois tiendra un autre la preture, pres de Venise paix union renaistre.
Seven months, no longer, will he obtain the papacy, through his death a great schism will arise:
For seven months another acts as pastor, near Venice, peace and union are reborn.
Some antipopes were popes that resigned or were forced to resign and yet were still recognized after another pope was elected. The current situation with Benedict and Francis is not unique, but it has been a very long time. Some were elected but the election was later determined to be invalid. During a schism or other unstable state of affairs a pope can be installed or appointed by special interest groups or powerful families, often illegally.
What makes this prophecy of interest is that it has been a very long time since an antipope has reigned: not since Amadeus VIII, Duke of Savoy (Antipope Felix V) resigned in April 1449.
According to Quatrain 5.46 (below) The reign of the antipope will be marked by a new schism and he will have been assigned or appointed illegally. He will be born near Rome and may also be partly Greek. The legitimacy of his papacy will come under attack ("great sophism") by a group of cardinals at a time of friction between Italy and Albania. By this time Greece and Turkey will be at war and Albania will likely be allied with the Turks since in another quatrain Albania invades Macedonia and Greece.
Par chapeaux rouges querelles & nouveaux schismes,
Quand on aura esleu le Sabinois:
On produira contre lui grans sophismes,
Et sera Rome lesse par Albanois.
By red hats & quarrels, new schisms
When the Sabine has been assigned:
They will produce great sophism against him,
And Rome will be wounded by the Albanians.
Fortunately the schism will end after seven months because Nostradamus says "peace and union are reborn."

War Between Turkey and Iran Begins
By two heads, with three separate arms, the great city by water will be vexed:
Great ones among them wandering through exile, by the Persian head is Byzantium strongly pressed.
With fire and armaments, not far from the Black Sea, he will come from Iran to occupy Trabzon [NE Turkey]:
Pharos [Egypt] and Mytilene [Greece] tremble, the Sun is joyful, Arabian blood covers the Adriatic Sea.
The last precedent for such a war is an old one: the Ottoman-Persia War of 1821 - 1823. That was the last time. Despite scouring the Internet to find out WHEN (WHAT EXACT MONTH) in 1821 hostilities began is useless ... the information is not provided in any historical resource. Only the years 1821 - 1823. When reading of the progress of the conflict in a few sources it is stated that it began when the Ottoman war with Greece ended. Yet another source suggested a first Ottoman offensive against Persia may have began in "late 1820". If true that, of course, puts the starting year at 1820 and not 1821 or suggests that the war began early in 1821 (January, February or March).
The most likely base 7 target year, given other related predicted events and actual current events, is 2024. We can surmise Turkey and Iran will go to war in early 2024, but it could be any time during the year. 1996 also is aligned with 1821, and August 1996 was the start of the largest Kurdish insurgency in modern times. It was a proxy conflict, but it was one that almost led to direct confrontation between Iran and Turkey. Thus, the month and year may be August 2024. Of course, base 7 is only correct to the month or within a few months of the month part of the time.
This will be a long war, one that will last for thirteen years (2024-2037).
It's beginning may be quite possibly mired down largely on the borders of Iran, Turkey, and northern Iraq. It may even begin as yet another proxy Kurd conflict. There is very little information.
According to Quatrain 5.86 it appears that Erdogan or a successor is being "hard pressed" (pressured) by the leader of Iran over some matter, not even necessarily war between the two countries but a mutual endeavor against the Kurds or else a renewed war between Armenia and Azerbaijan. In other words this could be joint cooperation or else proxy war stuff. The large city that is flooded is either Istanbul or Mumbai (see below).
However, there are not a number of "great" exiled leaders wandering about Turkey, India, or even throughout the world. Not yet. Maybe by 2024 ... or maybe not until much later.
One event we are alerted to await is the birth of a baby with "two heads and three separate arms." Such a child was born in India on November 23, 2019. That occurred first, but we await the flooding of either Istanbul or Mumbai and the great exiles.
If the city is Mumbai (as the baby was born in India), then the worst Mumbai floodings in 50 years, one of July 2005, the other in August 2017, would set a precedent for a future flood there in either August 2024 or July 2026. Once again, 2019 and 2024 and even 2019 and 2026 is reasonably contemporaneous from the viewpoint of one observing in 1555.
Clearly August 2024 matches the vector for war between Turkey and Iran.
But at this time there is no clue as to why or where the "great ones" will wander about in exile three years from now.
According to Nostradamus, once war is waged, Iran will eventually be victorious over Turkey. At the very least, Iran will conquer and occupy northeastern Turkey. And once it has conquered the western part of Turkey it will turn to invade Macedonia.
Thus, Quatrains 5.27 above (and another: Quatrain 2.96) mark the final stage of the war.
We will continue with this on 2033 Predictions.
The future of Western influence in the Middle East is being played out amid “the pivotal new war against Israel,” an analysis said. Turkey and Iran are moving to regain their influence and the war with Israel, by mid-May, is just the beginning, GIS/Defense & Foreign Affairs noted.
Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) forces on May 11 killed seven militants and dismantled their cell in the country's northwest near the border with Turkey, Iran’s state-run IRNA news agency reported. Two members of the IRGC were also reportedly killed in the shoot-out.
A secretive Turkish base in Iraq came under rocket fire last week. Turkey’s Anadolu news, which represents the government’s narrative, said that the rocket pads used to launch the attack were found in an area controlled by the Iranian-backed Hashd al-Sha’abi or PMU in northern Iraq.
Over the past several weeks, Iraq has become a major point of friction between Iran and Turkey. On February 27, Iranian Ambassador to Iraq Iraj Masjedi criticized Turkey’s military intervention in Iraq, calling on Ankara to withdraw its troops from Iraq. “We do not accept at all, be it Turkey or any other country, to intervene in Iraq militarily or advance or have a military presence in Iraq,” Masjedi said in an interview with Kurdish outlet Rudaw.
The Iranian-backed Asaib Ahl al-Haq militia last week threatened to take up arms against Turkey in the case of a possible operation by Ankara to eliminate PKK terrorists in Iraq’s northern Sinjar region.
ISTANBUL - Turkish-Iranian tensions are rising over Turkey's ongoing military operations against Kurdish militants in northern Iraq. The regional rivals are engaged in increasingly bitter diplomatic sparring as Ankara threatens to expand its Iraqi operations to a strategically important region used by an Iranian-backed militia.
