But still, I watched the documentary about Nostradamus's predictions more than a decade ago and back then the predictions were interpreted as a country in the Middle East (Iraq) launching some missiles towards USA, supported by Russia.

No such thing happened apart from the Gulf War. So what makes you think they will be right this time?

Using Nostradamus to justify the stiuation is possibly weak as its true he has been a) relatively unproven and b)he was French .The more serious nature is that democracy will come for these people at a price for the rest of us because we will need to feed them and if we don`t they will come looking for food. According to all the latest analysis, we are running out of the grain so badly needed to produce food (bread and meat) and therefore we will need to find some pretty speedy solutions.

Re: Nostradamus and the current revolts

I must congratulate those who've derailed this thread into a rapid-action, ping-pong of worthless posts. Did you miss this thread today?

Err, did you check the title of "this thread"?

You think it ever had a future as anything except "a rapid-action, ping-pong of worthless posts"

Well, fair play to ye, then! The world loves an optimist

Was that the reminiscence of Bill Gates' sentiment or extrapolating when he said "What will happen if whole of Indian population will start marching towards US/EU looking for jobs" i.e. Give them jobs there!

Do they want democracy? The revolutions are about better job prospects and living standards as people can harldy feed themselves, dont think they will even care whether they live under dictatorship or republicans.

Who exactly is WE? If my understadning is correct, I think THEY provide the raw material and WE process them and turn them into finished prodcuts and also trade on Markets and print currencies backed by those commodities. It is not as simple as you make it look like.

Simple example, any war in ME will drive the oil prices high, and with that there will be a price rise of almost everything. With the given unemployment rates and low salaries, it will be difficult for people everywhere in the world to make ends meet.

Do you get the picture? I dont think you are grumpy, but just a git.

Re: Nostradamus and the current revolts

Whilst staring at the sun for three hours, I had a revelation which said "Close thiiiiiiiiiissssss threeead."

Now, I'm not suspicious but why take the chance?
