Skip to comments.USA Sick and Ready to Collapse for Three Reasons
Posted on 09/10/2009 1:16:25 PM PDT by tessalu
The map of the collapse of the United States in 2010, made by Russian scientist of politics Igor Panarin, has received millions of views in the United States over one day only. The Wall Street Journal published the map on its front page at the end of 2008. Alaska is pictured on the map as a part of Russia. Hawaii were shown as a territory of Japan, whereas four new states were pictured on the territory of the USA: the Californian Republic, the Central North American Republic, the Texas Republic and the Atlantic America, which included the traditional states.
In spite of the fact that the map was published many months ago, it attracted public attention only a while ago. Will the United States break up like the USSR did?
Anatoly Vasserman, a political advisor, believes that Igor Panarin created the map on the base of several important arguments.
First and foremost, the US state debt has skyrocketed from $2 trillion to $11 trillion within a decade. The USA will never be able to pay off the debt.
Secondly, the political structure of the nation is vulnerable. There is neither universal legislation in the country, nor common traffic rules. The US Army does not execute its major function defense anymore since many foreign nationals prefer to serve in the army to obtain the US citizenship.
Thirdly, the split of elites, which was especially visible under the conditions of the crisis.
The problems, which Panarin named, are absolutely real. However, there is only one thing that is real: America will not be able to cope with these problems.
The USA is sick, but the illness began a long time ago and had a number of exacerbations. However, none of those illnesses has ever resulted in the collapse of the nation. The USA survived several immigration and economic crises. There was the split of elites before it once resulted in the civil war between the North and the South.
Winston Churchill once said that Americans will find a way out of a difficult situation only after they try all other ways. It goes without saying that the map of the United States will remain unchanged in 2010. Igor Panarin made his map in 1998, although it did not produce any attention on either the Russians or the Americans.
Any American knows that the economy is based on a large market. The larger the market can be, the faster the nation can overcome economic difficulties. America has never suffered from any crisis after WWII, that is why they perceive the current crisis so painfully. However, the interest, which so many Americans have shown to the research of the Russian professor, proves they treat the imminent threat seriously.
The USA will not take a risk of triggering a global war. If it does, the nation will suffer from much greater damage than it did during WWII. There were no intercontinental ballistic missiles 70 years ago. However, the nation can provoke smaller, local wars, for example a conflict between China and India. If it happens, the USA will not try to have Russia involved in any regional conflict because Russia, for the time being, is the only state that is technically capable of destroying America.
Pravda, enough said.
It must be bad news if it comes from Pravda... /s
Finally those capitalist pigs will pay for their crimes.
I am going to be a Mexican!
The Pravda of today, not the Soviet era, has more credibility than the American State Media.
Meh, that is arguable.
Pravda is looking for a US collapse so that it can revel in the moment as the world media did when the Soviet Union collapsed.
I just snarfed soda when I read that. You owe me a new keyboard, comrade.
I don’t doubt this is a possibility, but not for another 25-30 years.
typical commie propaganda
We can probably shoot down most missiles from all the countries that have nukes. But there’s no way we can shoot down thousands of Russian missiles. Although they’ll need to replace their warheads soon since their stock is aging rapidly.
Expiration of the potency of nuclear weapons in current possession, is also a concern among most nuclear powers, including the United States.
The current assurance rests on the accuracy of computer predictions. That, in itself, is telling.
God did this us back in the 1979-80 era. Our enemies were taunting and counting America out. Don’t fret.
The Old Testament suggests God allows this cycle (of nearing the abyss) to occur so as to prove Himself by swooping in to save us.
I expect America to be in better shape in a few years.
I’m going to learn the Russian language.
Yeah, sometimes we make mistakes, like electing Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton. Also, we screw up when we let the dems control both houses of congress, then give them a marxist to push their agenda. But poking a stick at the sleeping giant is not a good thing to do.....
Our friends, the KGB. They are joining Obama in hoping for change.
I think I'd use a different measurement based on the US economy in 2009. I don’t think it will happen for $10,000,000,000,000 to $15,000,000,000 more national debt. Or for a total of 250% to 300% inflation over todays prices.
I dont doubt this is a possibility, but not for another 25-30 years.
I give even money or better that either of those conditions will actually occur within 5 years.
Let's talk Russia into using them on China: which is already trying to position itself to take over Siberia by mass immigration.
They can forget about Alaska as they are losing Siberia to the Chinese. The Russians shoulda had an Oklahoma style land rush to get Siberia populated. Too late now.
