MOSCOW (AP) - 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.
"There is a high probability that the collapse of the United States will occur by 2010," Panarin told dozens of students, professors and diplomats Tuesday at the Diplomatic Academya lecture the ministry pointedly invited The Associated Press and other foreign media to attend.

Obama seems to be fast-tracking it for this year...
This coming from a country that has never gotten out of a collapse.
“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”
Puts his credibility right up there with the likes of Katie Couric and Keith Olberman...
Russia has economists?
And then...? I mean, would this then result in the US finally being run by capitalists?
Can’t I be part of the T-Bone section?
Honestly, this guy was pushing the same story back in 1998.
I would not dismiss it. The states need to push the 10th Amendment laws fast. I think the Federal govt will eventually default and it may be a lot sooner than you think.
I've been posting the following for close to a year without a SINGLE response... (seriously, not a one)
From the Sino-Russian Joint Statement of April 23, 1997:
"The two sides [China and Russia] shall, in the spirit of partnership, strive to promote the multipolarization of the world and the establishment of a new international order."
Russia, China flex muscles in joint war games

CHEBARKUL, Russia (Reuters) - Russia and China staged their biggest joint exercises on Friday but denied this show of military prowess could lead to the formation of a counterweight to NATO.
"Today's exercises are another step towards strengthening the relations between our countries, a step towards strengthening international peace and security, and first and foremost, the security of our peoples," Putin said.
Fighter jets swooped overhead, commandos jumped from helicopters on to rooftops and the boom of artillery shells shook the firing range in Russia's Ural mountains as two of the largest armies in the world were put through their paces.
The exercises take place against a backdrop of mounting rivalry between the West, and Russia and China for influence over Central Asia, a strategic region that has huge oil, gas and mineral resources.
Russia's growing assertiveness is also causing jitters in the West. Putin announced at the firing range that Russia was resuming Soviet-era sorties by its strategic bomber aircraft near NATO airspace.
"the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the [20th] century" -Russian leader Vladimir Putin on the collapse of the Soviet Union...
"World democratic opinion has yet to realize the alarming implications of President Vladimir Putin's State of the Union speech on April 25, 2005, in which he said that the collapse of the Soviet Union represented the 'greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the century.'

"Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has been visiting countries such as China, Iran and Russia as part of an effort to build a 'strategic alliance' of interests not beholden to the United States. He considers the United States his arch enemy.":
Someone tell me why this is a bad thing?
6 Americas? I thought there were 2 Americas. Confused!
Someone tell me why this is a bad thing?

Didn’t they say that last year?
And the year before?
Being a Texan I’m all for it and wish it would happen tomorrow while we Texans still have some money left. Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi would have the monopoly on the oil and gas and could sell it to the jerks in north east for a high price. I like it!
You split the US GDP by 6 (for simplicity sake) and that will be axiomatic. However, there is a great chance of that happening anyway due to the fast track destruction being wrought by the Obamarxists. Splitting gives us a better chance of survival of founding principals which will ultimately lead back to success.
