She apparently had an 85% success rate in her predictions and so earned the title, Nostradamus from the Balkans. Way back in the 50s, she said cold regions will become warm
and volcanoes will awaken, which is possibly a reference to climate change.
Followers of hers also believe that she predicted the 2004 boxing day tsunami when she said a wave would come to a big coast, covering people and towns and [causing] everything to disappear under the water.
In 1989, she said the American Brethren would be attacked by two steel birds with sounds a bit like 9/11. So with all of this in mind, people get largely freaked out when one of her claims sort of correlates to whats going on now.
Before her death, she predicted a 2016 invasion by Muslim extremists eventually ending with a Muslim caliphate ran from Rome by 2043.
So thats the bad news to kick start your year but we should probably look at this logically
She was never particularly specific with her dates with the other predictions so its already pretty sketchy. To predict there will be a big wave on a coast would sound laughable if anyone else were to say it. As for the 9/11 prediction, it wasnt a brethren that was attacked, it was a World trade centre (granted two steel birds sounds very mystical).
Baba Vanga apparently made the Muslim extremest prediction shortly before her death in 1996 a time of Muslim civil war with Al-Qaeda and the Taliban already doing their thing. Since, one way or another, theres always some sort of extremists group terrorising peace, why not pick whoever was in the public eye at that moment to sound more believable?
Basically, the link is tenuous at best. But it makes for a good film plot, right?!
