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.

Unhappy, dispiriting points to ponder, but important. Keep also in mind the End Times aspect to not calling yourself a member of a nation that curses Israel (which the administration is close to doing, if they haven't already done so with Hillary's Mideast trip).
If we went all the way back to shortly after the Russian revolution, and looked at public statements about the U.S., we would probably see the same prediction hundreds of times, if not thousands of times.
Maybe second, don’t forget His Imperial Majesty Norton I, by Grace of God Emperor of these United States and Protector of Mexico.
The Nazis made that particular moral quandry easy when they came up with their own flag. :)
You’ve found the obvious flaw in my analogy’s visualization. Doesn’t negate the gist of it though! ;-)
LOL, it’s still a difficult question—at what point does one stop supporting the government in Nazi Germany, and start resisting, either actively or passively? Not as easy on to answer. :)
at this point....let the ‘Bamsters have the coasts, the union states...and be done with it. Some of us still prefer freedom to serfdom....
Lowlife communist wannabees.
Putin can go screw Stalin’s remains.
We'd love to have those two join us. I would welcome NM as well so we can still go snow skiing...tee-hee
We'll have to deal with that issue and keep the commies from infultrating ya know. I really wish it would happen now. I've had it with D.C.
You picked an extreme case in history. America is nowhere near where Germany was in the 1930s. Not even close.
I never thought I’d see the day when conservatives promoted something very much like treason and the break-up of the U.S. or gave credibility to some post-Soviet, propagandist hack.
Seriously, if a split happens, those of the leftist worldview must be kept from polluting the free states of America. We see this happening all over the country - leftists fleeing the cesspools that their ideology created, and bringing those destructive worldviews with them.
There should be an ideological immigration test.
I nominate Thomas Sowell as arbiter of weeding out the dumb masses.
Keep in mind that to King George, Washington, Jefferson, and the rest of the Framers promoted treason (successfully). You’ve failed to grasp what those Men knew - that no alligiance to an earthly power is binding when that power consists of tyranny. Tell me that those same men - our Founding Fathers - if presented with the country as it stands today (or even last year), would not now be gathering to draft a Declaration.
I don’t believe the framers would be gathered today plotting to overthrow the U.S. government. They had a sense of history. They would probably be more amused and perhaps even proud that their creation functioned and continues to function so well. By their “creation” I include the concept of a nation in which free debate is encouraged.
Franklin, a relative late comer to the Revolution, would probably be blogging like crazy.
All that said, I don’t have an 18th century mind and can’t discern what they would have thought or not thought. I can say, that I’m growing tired of folks using “what they might have thought” as reason for treasonous outpourings against the gubmint they created.
Have you received yet your Obama brownshirt? Forgive me for insulting your Dear Leader, for whom I did not vote, but please refrain from charging me with creating the monstrosity that the US is fast becoming and for whose Glorious Protector, you continue to offer fawning allegience.
And one more thing, no one is “plotting” a damn thing. Or are you here as a Federal political officer leveling charges for a future show trial?
My loyalty is to my country, which will endure.
I am not a law enforcement officer.
