Terrorism and Large-Scale Migration

This quatrain was interpreted December 5, 2007

Century VII, Quatrain 6
Naples, Palerma and all of Sicily will be uninhabited through Barbarian hands. Corsica, Salerno, and the island of Sardinia, hunger, plague, war the end of extended evils.

Interpretation with Explanatory Remarks
The prediction is self explanatory.

General Comment: The relevance of this quatrain to the North Korean nuclear attack is based on the following three points:

First, the geographic area which is uninhabited is rather extensive. The depiction seems like the results of modern warfare, most likely widespread radioactive contamination or some type of weapon of mass destruction (see reference to “plague” and Nostradamus’ connecting it to “war”. This implies that the plague is the result of the war and not a natural epidemic);

Second, Nostradamus says that “there is hunger and plague”, which are the expected results of nuclear devastation (loss of personal property and high unemployment) and radiation exposure (effects of blast, burns, radiation and related diseases, and long-term effects); and

Third, his comment “…the end of extended evils”, probably alludes to the hostile relations with North Korea which dragged on for more than five decades, eventually culminating in their attack. Even though the war with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea) ended with a ceasefire/armistice in 1953 there were no formal diplomatic relations established. It is indeed a very well known fact that the Korean war technically continued for several decades and our adversarial positions failed to reach a peaceful rapprochement. Nostradamus’ comment is a “bull’s eye” hit!

The critical point in this quatrain is Nostradamus’ comment that “Sicily will be uninhabited”, which ties it into century VIII, quatrain 81. Without this quatrain, interpretation of quatrain 81 would be questionable (or less credible).
