U.S. Falling Apart In 2010?

This must be the weirdest story of 2009… 

 

 

According to “The Wall Street Journal”,, Russian academic Igor Panarin has been predicting for a decade that the U.S. will fall apart in 2010. Mass immigration, economic decline, and moral degradation will trigger a civil war next fall and the collapse of the dollar. Around the end of June 2010, or early July, he says, the U.S. will break into six pieces — with Alaska reverting to Russian control. (In 1867, Russia sold Alaska to the United States for ludicrous $7.2 million)

 

It was at a conference in Austria, back in 1998, where he first presented his theory, in front of 400 fellow delegates, about the collapse of the U.S. In  2010.

 

“When I pushed the button on my computer and the map of the United States disintegrated, hundreds of people cried out in surprise,” he remembers. He says most in the audience were skeptical. “They didn’t believe me.”

 

At the end of the presentation, he says many delegates asked him to autograph copies of the map showing a dismembered U.S.

 

The professor says he’s convinced that people are taking his theory more seriously. People like him have forecast similar cataclysms before, he says, and been right. He cites French political scientist Emmanuel Todd. Mr. Todd is famous for having rightly forecast the demise of the Soviet Union — 15 years beforehand. “When he forecast the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1976, people laughed at him,” says Prof. Panarin.

 

So, according to Professor Panarin, California will form the nucleus of what he calls “The Californian Republic,” and will be part of China or under Chinese influence. Texas will be the heart of “The Texas Republic,” a cluster of states that will go to Mexico or fall under Mexican influence. Washington, D.C., and New York will be part of an “Atlantic America” that may join the European Union. Canada will grab a group of Northern states Prof. Panarin calls “The Central North American Republic.” Hawaii, he suggests, will be a protectorate of Japan or China, and Alaska will be subsumed into Russia.
