The Simpsons had predicted the Russia-Ukraine war decades ago!
Yes, you read it right, the famous American show is back in news yet again for its predictions of events ahead in time.
The long-running cartoon show had apparently predicted Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine back in 1998.
Following the escalation of Ukraine and Russia tensions that resulted in almost a full-scale war on Thursday, a number of social media users shared a few clips of the old shows.
An old clip is now ding rounds that predicted the return of the Soviet Union and a new Cold War way back in 1998.
The 1998 episode titled Simpson Tide seems pretty close at the moment that coincides with the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict.
