The city is beseiged and assaulted by night;
few have escaped; a battle not far from the sea.
A woman faints with joy at the return of her son,
poison in the folds of the hidden letters

Think of the cities in Iraq being beseiged and assaulted as they were when the war started. Many haven't been able to escape this, and many women see their sons return from military duty in Iraq. And could the "poision in the folds of the hidden letters" be the anthrax poison?

Surely Iraq would have to be named for it to be about Iraq, and the US is missing in Nostradamus' work, unless they are mentioned in the pejorative?
