A blind mystic who correctly predicted Brexit, 9/11, the rise of ISIS and the Boxing Day tsunami also warned of conflict in Syria, nuclear war and the demise of the US president.
As tensions rise between the United States and North Korea, conspiracy theorists believe prophetess Baba Vanga may have foretold a catastrophic global war.
The Bulgarian – who died in 1996 aged 85 – was known as the ‘Nostradamus from the Balkans’.
She is revered in Russia for her 85% success rate when it comes to telling the future – with millions convinced that she possessed paranormal abilities.
Before she died, the clairvoyant made a chilling prophecy about the use of nuclear weapons and World War 3.
Baba prophesised a 2016 invasion of Europe by Muslim extremists, a conflict she predicted would begin with the Arab Spring in 2010.
She also forewarned of a showdown in Syria where “Muslims would use chemical warfare against Europeans”.
The prediction is eerily similar to the Sarin gas attack thought to have been conducted on the orders of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad.
Many put faith in Baba’s predictions due to the accuracy of her previous prophecies.
Theorists believe she foretold Brexit – even going so far as to say that Europe as we know it will “cease to exist” by the end of 2016.
Moreover she claimed the continent will be left “almost empty” – and be turned into a “wasteland almost entirely devoid of any form of life”.
She foretold that nuclear war would ravages the world and most people die of skin cancer from chemical weapons.
Baba also appeared to predict that the 45th President of the United States – who we now know to be Donald Trump – would be faced with a crisis which would “bring the country down”.
Her chilling prediction states: “Everyone will put their hopes in him to end it, but the opposite will happen; he will bring the country down and conflicts between north and south states will escalate.”
Some speculate the references to “north and south” could mean North and South Korea.
Moreover, Baba warned than assassination attempts on four heads of states in 2010 would become one of the causes for the start of WWIII.
Some dismissed this prediction as incorrect as the heads of state were believed to potentially refer to Obama, Sarkozsky, Netanyahu, Vladimir Putin and Gordon Brown.
However, observers note that Hamas leader Mahmúd al-Mabhouh was assassinated in Dubai on January 19, 2010 and Polish leader Lech Kaczynski was found dead in suspicious circumstances on April 10, 2010.
Others point out that Libya’s Colonel Muammar Gaddafi was killed on October 20, 2011 and Saddam Hussein died a few years earlier on December 30, 2006.
All were linked to the Arab Spring which Baba said would set events in motion which would bring about the next global conflict.
Baba’s predictions have been revisited after another mystic, who accurately foretold Donald Trump’s presidency, claims to know the exact date World War 3 will start.
Self-proclaimed ‘messenger of God’ Horacio Villegas believes nuclear war will break out on the 100th anniversary of the visitation of Our Lady of Fatima.
The clairvoyant claims to have envisioned Trump would win the US election as far back as 2015.
He reportedly predicted the billionaire businessman would become the “illuminati king” who will “ bring the world into WW3 ”.
Chillingly, one of his prophecies appears to have already come true.
Villegas warned the US leader would attack Syria , which took place earlier this month when Trump launched a huge air strike on an airbase in Homs.
He also predicted that it would bring Russia, North Korea and China into the deadly global conflict – something which, if the prophecy is to be believed, may be just WEEKS away.
Critics however claim that people will twist Baba Vanga’s prophecies to make them seem true.
Baba’s prediction over 9/11 is said to be from a statement she made in 1989.
She predicted: “Horror, horror! The American brethren will fall after being attacked by the steel birds. The wolves will be howling in a bush, and innocent blood will be gushing.”
Baba also said that Europe will be transformed into an Islamic caliphate by 2043, Communism will return by 2076 and there will be war on Mars in 3005.
But she got her prediction for the 1994 World Cup final completely wrong – saying it would be played between “two teams beginning with B”, when in fact Brazil beat Italy 3-2 on penalties.
What else did she get right? And what does the future hold according to the mystical seer?
The Kursk nuclear submarine disaster
In 1980 the blind prophetess predicted that in August of 1999, “Kursk will be covered with water and the whole world will weep over it.”
Kursk was a Russian sub that Sank in the Barents Sea on August 12, 2000, killing all aboard.
In 1989 Baba Vanga said: “Horror, horror! The American brethren will fall after being attacked by the steel birds. The wolves will be howling in a bush, and innocent blood will be gushing.”
On September 11, 2001, planes hijacked by Islamic extremists hit the World Trade Center in New York, killing thousands of people.
According to the prophetess, China will become a world power in 2018.
She’s probably out a few years here as China is already an economic and military powerhouse.
We’ve also apparently got a change in the earth’s orbit to look forward to some time before 2023.
