Edgar Leoni sees “d’ardue ne silue” as the Latin name for the Ardennes Forest, Ardvenna Silva.

As I wrote in Nostradamus and the Age of Desolation, after Russia and NATO go to war, this Quatrain makes it apparent that the war does not go well for the West, and NATO headquarters must be relocated.

My contention is that once Russia and China commit to military combat, it will be a full spectrum asymmetrical war. NATO will lose in the first three days.

In an October 10th, 2016 BBC interview retired Russian Lieutenant General Yevgeny Buzhinsky said, “Of course there is a reaction. As far as Russia sees it, as Putin sees it, it is full-scale confrontation on all fronts. If you want a confrontation, you’ll get one.

But it won’t be a confrontation that doesn’t harm the interests of the United States. You want a confrontation, you’ll get one everywhere.

These comments reflect that the Russian tactical doctrine will be a war from Northern Europe to Southern Europe, from the Balkans to Syria, and right to the front door of the United States. Russia cannot sustain a long war, even with China’s help. Phase I may be quick, over-powering, and deadly.

As you will read in Quatrain V-47, the trigger for Phase I appears to be the movement of a large Arab army. I really feel this is why Nostradamus began bundling the Triplicate Series. If future readers could follow the progression of interpretations, they would know when a nuclear war between NATO and Russia would start.

I believe that once the 39-Nation Sunni Alliance forms up alongside the United States Coalition Army, you will see Trump initiate the invasion of Syria and Iraq. Once this begins, Russia will most likely invade eastern Ukraine or all of Ukraine.

This will escalate into a Russian invasion of Turkey and possibly the Balkans and parts of southern Europe, with the armies of Iran moving to attack the United States and Sunni Alliance’s eastern flank.

Nostradamus Quatrain V-45
Le grand Empire sera tost desollé,
Et translaté pres d’ardue ne silue:
Les deux bastards par l’aisné decollé,
Et regnera Aenobarb. nez de milue.

Nostradamus Quatrain V-45
The great Empire [Aquilon/NATO] shall be totally desolate,
And transferred near the Ardennes Forest (N. France) [NATO Headquarters]:
The two bastards through the eldest beheaded,
And reigning Aenobarbe [Nero/Black King]. [his] nose [in the] middle.

And reigning Aenobarbe [Nero/Black King]. [his] nose [in the] middle” points to this happening after The Black King’s return. On the other hand, as written in the November 1560 Presage, “The Black [King] from far away and the great hold hard”, suggests that Barack Obama and his supporters will counter Trump’s agenda from the shadows, including starting a war.

This follows several Quatrains and Presages that suggest a terrorist plot close to Pope Francis will occur first.
