Russian Predicts End Of US. We Predict Russia Already Ended

"For a decade, Russian academic Igor Panarin has been predicting the U.S. will fall apart in 2010. For most of that time, he admits, few took his argument -- that an economic and moral collapse will trigger a civil war and the eventual breakup of the U.S. -- very seriously." (Wall Street Journal) This isn't some kook either, he's former KGB. Scratch that. He is a kook. Check out the map at the bottom of the link above. The Northeast US will become a part of the EU? The West a part of China? HA!

He should be one to talk though; didn't Russia basically "fail" 15 years ago? Those guys have way too much time to come up with crazy ideas while standing in line waiting to buy bread.

"Dr. Panarin's apocalyptic vision 'reflects a very pronounced degree of anti-Americanism in Russia today,' says Vladimir Pozner, a prominent TV journalist in Russia. 'It's much stronger than it was in the Soviet Union.'" (WSJ) I wonder if that's because people like us make comments like the one above. Oh well. Happy Friday.
