MOSCOW If you're inclined to believe Igor Panarin, and the Kremlin wouldn't mind if you did, then President Barack Obama will order martial law this year, the U.S. will split into six rump-states before 2011, and Russia and China will become the backbones of a new world order.
Panarin might be easy to ignore but for the fact that he is a dean at the Foreign Ministry's school for future diplomats and a regular on Russia's state-guided TV channels. And his predictions fit into the anti-American story line of the Kremlin leadership.

ROTFL .... and Mother Russia is a virtual paragon of stability.
Next year? He’s really optimistic!..................
This seemed insane when I first read about this guy’s views six months or so ago.
Now, it doesn’t seem so crazy...
Just as likely.
And Obama will call it a victory
All Hail The Great “Rump State” ot the Republic of Texas!
At this point, it does not to me either.
But then again, I think this guy has been at this as long as some of the prognosticators of the Apocalypse.
I guess I’m more interested in how and where the US may be re-Constituted.
“...the U.S. will split into six rump-states before 2011...”
TX, OK, AL, MS, GA and I guess we would take LA for the sake of being contiguous....sounds like a good rump state to me.
The Republic will be in tatters as the Empire takes over! I think I’ve seen this movie before...
This is quite possible because the rulers have always used the concept of dividing collectivities in order to better control them as was most notably seen in Yugoslavia & they are more openly then ever before attempting to realign the world in what they call a New World Order model based on the concept of division with the goal of a new unification under their more overt control.
I understand the Perfessor is a former KGB man. Makes sense, since the present Russian government is a criminal conspiracy. Obama will ignore this, of course, in his efforts to build bridges to former Reds.
"He also noted he had been predicting the demise of the world's wealthiest country for more than a decade now."
I was kind of hooked on the TV show Jericho when it was on. What scares me is now I wonder how close we might be to life imitating art.
"That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."
The general rule I have while dealing with communists — that has served me well over the years is that everything they say, is a lie.
However, note that he does not mention abortion as an indicator of social and moral decline. To do so would be to implicate Russia, also. Russian abortion figures are even more horrific than America's. I read somewhere that one in three pregnancies in Russia ends in abortion. Not sure if that figure is correct. Anybody know for sure? It is high, however.
So Panarin may well be right about the collapse of the US but he is smoking crack if he thinks Russia will take its place. The US, Russia, and China are all going to get whacked.
I believe the long term beneficiaries of this will be Islam. This is the time of Islam. It is already colonizing western Europe demographically, and the weakening of the world's strong economies will further embolden it. Stand by for mucho bloodshed.
In La. we have the oil and gas of Texas plus we have the nukes. I think we will be calling the shots.
He doesn’t want to go to martial law because when he does, the will be anarchy and lawlessness no military can control.
