MOSCOW For a decade, Russian academic Igor Panarin has been predicting the U.S. will fall apart in 2010. Now he's found an eager audience: Russian state media, who are interviewing him twice a day.
A polite and cheerful man with a buzz cut, Professor Panarin insists he does not dislike Americans. But he warns that the outlook for them is dire.
"There's a 55-45 percent chance right now that disintegration will occur," says Panarin. "One could rejoice in that process," he adds, poker-faced. "But if we're talking reasonably, it's not the best scenario for Russia."
Prof. Panarin, 50 years old, is not a fringe figure. A former KGB analyst, he is dean of the Russian Foreign Ministry's academy for future diplomats. He is invited to Kremlin receptions, lectures students, publishes books, and appears in the media as an expert on U.S.-Russia relations.
Mr. Panarin posits, in brief, that mass immigration, economic decline, and moral degradation will trigger a civil war next fall and the collapse of the dollar. Around the end of June 2010, or early July, he says, the U.S. will break into six pieces with Alaska reverting to Russian control.
For many years I have heard the rumors of the demise of this United States of America. For many years I wrote those rumors off as nothing more than wishful thinking by our enemies. Wishful thinking and hopes that our way of life would be destroyed.
The timeline stated in this story may be close to correct. The United States of America is on life support as you read this. Our nation is very close to death right now. Our finances are a wreck. Our politics are even worse, graft and corruption are the order of the day.
One upon a time, I would have fought ANY that said the American people and this nation were on the verge of falling. I no longer feel that way. I KNOW we are in a seriously dangerous position. I KNOW that we really are on the verge of collapse. The last 4 or 5 years under George W. Bush and his administrations rape of this nation have made that fact glaringly apparent.
And to ANY that think Obama is going to be, or DO anything better than Bush, think again. Bush has built the coffin this nation will be laid to rest in. Obama will dig the hole, hammer the nails in place, drop the casket in and cover it up!
I would not be at all surprised to see a *civil war* in this nation. I would also not be at all surprised to see America splinter into several smaller nations. The far west would likely be Aztlan, the Mexicans would try to take Texas back but that would be their Waterloo, Texas will emerge as a nation unto itself, a relatively self sufficient REPUBLIC that has the rest of this Balkanized nation wanting all that we produce and control!
Those predictions by the Russian Professor are not at all out of realm of possibilities. The *dire straights* that he refers to are here now, just not quite dire enough to bring us to our knees. Yet.
I truly pity many parts of this nation as well. Can you imagine Detroit or Chicago trying to be self sufficient? Can you imagine the *Chocolate City* being self sufficient even in thriving times? Those cities can't maintain their citizens NOW. God help us all if this nation falls into total anarchy in the coming months!
We will get a reality check, re-align, and then move forward as we have before.
Over Sarah Palin’s dead body will Alaska go back to Russian control
Especially nonsense when you consider states like SC, KY and TN going with the libtards in New England.
And I especially like the part where they say Texas “would be part of Mexico or under Mexican influence.”
Haha - maybe the other way around!
Nope. Mexico will never give up CA and AZ to the Chinese. The Government of La Raza will not permit it.
Isn’t that the same year that Obama’s massive tax increases will go into effect?
Just say no to drugs!
“I would not be at all surprised to see a *civil war* in this nation”
1. POSSIBLE, but not likely.
“the Mexicans would try to take Texas back but that would be their Waterloo, Texas will emerge as a nation unto itself”
2. POSSIBLE, but would be very stupid of Mexico to try.
Overall: Pretty dumb article.
The author of this article is a nut. Broad statements like the US dollar collapsing sound scary, but are unlikely. The dollar is still the currency of choice in the world. The Chinese are linked so closely with us they will not grow tired of buying US debt. Social unrest would have to take a truly dramatic event, something Obama can’t do.
This guy been seen doing a “bong” with Obama? He must be smoking something!
(there are more under other titles)
Kentucky will never be invited to join the EU.
We would kill them at basketball while smoking.
Stop playing with it Igor. It will make you crazy!
Completely discounts the Palin factor.
