If you ask that question to Scott Ritter, a former US Marine and a
UN weapons inspector in Iraq from 1991 to 1998, his answer would be
very soon as he states in an article of his that was posted in Aljazeera.net on June 20, 2005.
Scott Ritterís article "The US War
With Iran Has Already Begun" was posted under the headline of
OPINION, so it should be taken as one manís opinion.
After mentioning that,
"...the US war with Iran has already begun. As
we speak, American over flights of Iranian soil are taking place,
using pilot-less drones and other, more sophisticated,
capabilities," Scott says: "To the north, in neighboring Azerbaijan,
the US military is preparing a base of operations for a massive
military presence that will foretell a major land-based campaign
designed to capture Tehran."
Scott elaborates in some details:
" In fact, US air power should be
able to maintain a nearly 24-hour a day presence over Tehran
airspace once military hostilities commence. No longer will the
United States need to consider employment of Cold War-dated plans
which called for moving on Tehran from the Persian Gulf cities of Chah Bahar and Bandar Abbas. US Marine Corps units will be able to
secure these towns in order to protect the vital Straits of Hormuz,
but the need to advance inland has been eliminated. A much shorter
route to Tehran now exists - the coastal highway running along the
Caspian Sea from Azerbaijan to Tehran. US military planners have
already begun war games calling for the deployment of
multi-divisional forces into Azerbaijan. Logistical planning is well
advanced concerning the basing of US air and ground power in

According to an analysis made by the experts of the
Center, known as STATFOR, the American military presence in
Azerbaijan has there main tasks.
the first one is the security of
Baku-Tbilisi-Jeyhan oil pipeline
the second task is the creation of
conditions in case there is a need to attack Iran
the third one
is to force Russia out from the region
Rev. Samuel Doctorian, who sometimes is referred to as the
Graham of the Middle East, has been given a vision of the future
from heaven, in 1998, concerning the Middle East, Rev. Doctorian
describes that vision:
"I saw Iran (Persia), Armenia, Azerbaijan,
Georgia, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, all of Asia Minor--full of
blood. I saw blood all over these countries. And I saw fire; nuclear
weapons used in many of those countries. Smoke rising from
everywhere. Sudden destruction -- men destroying one another... and the
United Nations broken in pieces because of the crisis in the
East (The Vision of Five Angels)"
There is a quatrain of Nostradamus that clearly points to
conflicts occurring in the areas of Arabia/Kuwait, of Eastern Turkey
and of Iran. The first one already came to pass in 1991 in what came
be to known as Desert Storm. The second one is the present war in
Iraq, and the third one is in the horizon, this time, Iran will be
The Quatrain in question is No. 31 from the Century No. 3. It
"On the fields of Iran (Media), of Arabia, and of Eastern
Turkey (Armenia); two great armies will assemble three times. Near
the river Araks (located in Eastern Turkey), the host of the great
Suleyman (the Turks) will be cut off."
The first two lines of Quatrain No.27, Century No. 5, state:
firepower of armies, not far from the Black Sea, He will come from
Iran to occupy Trebizond (a strategic city in Eastern Turkey on the
shores of the Black Sea)."
Quatrain No.54, Century No. 5, states:
"From the Black Sea and the
great Tartary; a would be king (a leader) will come to see Gaul (an
ancient name for a region in Eastern Turkey). He will transpire
Alania (an ancient name for the lands of Alans in north Caucasus,
near modern Chechnya) and Armenia; and in Byzantium (modern
Istanbul) will leave his bloody standard."
This quatrain is a clear
indication of a Russian involvement also.
Obviously we are living presently the period of 27 years of war
prophecies by Nostradamus in his Quatrain No.77, Century No.8. That
"Very soon the anti-christ (from Iran?) will
destroy three. His war will last for twenty seven bloody years. The
dissenters are put to death, taken prisoners and are exiled. Blood,
human corpses, water reddened, earth ravaged by hail."
