    While such intercepts are common in Baltic Sea , still the ongoing times have some signals cal for more care and strategy on the part of Nordic and Baltic States. And these signals come , unfortunately , at a time when German Chancellor Angela Merkel opined the other day that EU cannot depend completely on US. This Vedic astrology writer has already opined that 24 June to about September 2017 could be a major worrisome concern for several vulnerable countries across the globe. And 19 August to 4 September with peak hype on 30 August ( it could be 29 August in the west) may call for utmost care and strategy across several vulnerable countries against anything like WW3 or natural disasters or economic collapse. Human more care and appropriate strategy have however weight.
