MOSCOW -- 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. Now he's found an eager audience: Russian state media.
Prof. Panarin, 50 years old, is not a fringe figure. A former KGB analyst, he is dean of the Russian Foreign Ministry's academy for future diplomats. He is invited to Kremlin receptions, lectures students, publishes books, and appears in the media as an expert on U.S.-Russia relations.
But it's his bleak forecast for the U.S. that is music to the ears of the Kremlin, which in recent years has blamed Washington for everything from instability in the Middle East to the global financial crisis. Mr. Panarin's views also fit neatly with the Kremlin's narrative that Russia is returning to its rightful place on the world stage after the weakness of the 1990s, when many feared that the country would go economically and politically bankrupt and break into separate territories.
Mr. Panarin posits, in brief, that 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 addition to increasing coverage in state media, which are tightly controlled by the Kremlin, Mr. Panarin's ideas are now being widely discussed among local experts. He presented his theory at a recent roundtable discussion at the Foreign Ministry. The country's top international relations school has hosted him as a keynote speaker.
During an appearance on the state TV channel Rossiya, the station cut between his comments and TV footage of lines at soup kitchens and crowds of homeless people in the U.S. The professor has also been featured on the Kremlin's English-language propaganda channel, Russia Today.
In September 1998, he attended a conference in Linz, Austria, devoted to information warfare, the use of data to get an edge over a rival. It was there, in front of 400 fellow delegates, that he first presented his theory 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. He based the forecast on classified data supplied to him by FAPSI analysts, he says. He predicts that economic, financial and demographic trends will provoke a political and social crisis in the U.S.
When the going gets tough, he says, wealthier states will withhold funds from the federal government and effectively secede from the union. Social unrest up to and including a civil war will follow. The U.S. will then split along ethnic lines, and foreign powers will move in. source - Wall Street Journal
The Coming Collapse Of The United States Of America Doomsday warnings of US apocalypse gain ground
From the moment that Barack Hussein Obama took control of the Presidency, things on all levels have gone from bad, to worse, to unbelievable. Over the past 18 months he has been steadily removing the pillars that have supported this country since it's inception in 1776. It is obvious to anyone who is paying attention, that he has an agenda to weaken and cripple us. The amazing thing is how fast he has been able to accomplish that goal. This is no longer about Red or Blue, black or white, rich or poor, liberal or conservative. It's about our survival as a nation, which at the time of this writing, hangs very much in the balance.
Professor Igor Panarin
Today, I would like to introduce you to a man named Igor Panarin. He is a Russian Professor who wrote a book called "The Crash of America", just recently published. Even though the book is just out, his prediction was actually made way back in 1998, when he picked the year 2010 as the starting point for the crash. Why should you listen to this man? Because he also predicted that the Soviet Union would crash, and it did. Professor Panarin even had the year right. So I think we should, at the very least, give a listen to what he has to say.
Former KGB estimator Professor Igor Panarin predicted in 1998 that the USA would collpase in 2010
Two months left to read the book on US collapse
Panarin believes President Obama will lead his country to a breakup. Panarin compares Obama to former Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev. "Obama is "the president of hope", but in a year there won't be any hope. He's practically another Gorbachev - he likes to talk but hasn't really managed to do anything. Gorbachev at least had been a secretary of a regional communist party administration, whereas Obama was just a social worker. His mentality is totally different. He's a nice person and talks nicely - but he's not a leader and will take America to a crash. When Americans understand that - it will be like a bomb explosion," Panarin said, speaking to journalists during the unveiling of his book. Panarin made his controversial forecast back in 1998, saying 2010 would be the starting point of the collapse. He spent the following eleven years monitoring the events around the US and says they largely confirm his theory.
"Today I received another confirmation that the collapse of the dollar and the US is inevitable. Japan's Democratic Party won the election, and I'd like to remind you that its leader [Yukio Hatoyama] has the snubbing of the dollar among his economic plans. In plainer words, he plans to transfer Japan's monetary reserves from US dollars into another currency. The move will seriously accelerate the dollar's exchange slump as early as this November. Disintegration will follow shortly," he added. Amid all these pessimistic statements, Panarin - once labeled by a WSJ journalist as "a polite and cheerful man with a buzz cut" - insists he is by no means a US-hater but, rather, just a scientist.
The US will be divided to six areas of foreign influence according to Panarin
Crushing debt held by foreign countries will crush the US
"I'm not anti-American, the US population has nothing to do with the part of its political elite that implements an absurd and aggressive policy that aims to create conflicts around the planet. I hope to see the reasonable part of the American elite - I know there is one - benefiting in these two months left till the collapse. I can name two people that belong to this reasonable part - US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs William Burns. If they triumph in the political strife, the consequences of the collapse will be minimized."
"The 2009 US budget deficit is 4.5 times the 2008 deficit, while firearms sales are up 40%. On October 1, the coupons that were given to state workers are to be cashed out. When the workers realize that they are getting nothing for those coupons, they will take out their firearms and chaos will unfold. Meanwhile, in a separate issue, as the financial year draws to a close on September 30, its results will be published. They are destined to shock investors worldwide.
After that, and the snubbing of the dollar by Japan and, especially, China, which will transfer 50% of its international operations to Yuan starting in 2010, the currency will then flow like a landslide out of style. Argentina and Brazil are excluding the dollar from mutual financial operations starting January 2010, while Brazil offers to move toward alternative currencies throughout the whole of South America," Panarin noted.
He also suggested Russia follow suit and begin selling oil and gas for roubles. Panarin still leaves room for miscalculation, which would actually make him happy. And should the collapse not start in November, he is ready to explain why it didn't happen by December. But at the moment, the collapse looks quite likely.
"In my opinion, the probability of the US ceasing to exist by June, 2010 exceeds 50%. At this point, the mission of all major international powers is to prevent chaos in the US," Panarin concluded. source - Russia Today.com
Doomsday warnings of US apocalypse gain ground
Economists peddling dire warnings that the world's number one economy is on the brink of collapse, amid high rates of unemployment and a spiraling public deficit, are flourishing here. The guru of this doomsday line of thinking may be economist Nouriel Roubini, thrust into the forefront after predicting the chaos wrought by the subprime mortgage crisis and the collapse of the housing bubble. "The US has run out of bullets," Roubini told an economic forum in Italy earlier this month. "Any shock at this point can tip you back into recession." But other economists, who have so far stayed out of the media limelight, are also proselytizing nightmarish visions of the future. Boston University professor Laurence Kotlikoff, who warned as far back as the 1980s of the dangers of a public deficit, lent credence to such dark predictions in an International Monetary Fund publication last week.
Deeply in debt to the Communist Chinese, the US just continues to print pile upon pile of worthless paper that has no real value of any kind.
He unveiled a doomsday scenario -- which many dismiss as pure fantasy -- of an economic clash between superpowers the United States and China, which holds more than 843 billion dollars of US Treasury bonds. "A minor trade dispute between the United States and China could make some people think that other people are going to sell US treasury bonds," he wrote in the IMF's Finance & Development review. "That belief, coupled with major concern about inflation, could lead to a sell-off of government bonds that causes the public to withdraw their bank deposits and buy durable goods." Kotlikoff warned such a move would spark a run on banks and money market funds as well as insurance companies as policy holders cash in their surrender values. "In a short period of time, the Federal Reserve would have to print trillions of dollars to cover its explicit and implicit guarantees. All that new money could produce strong inflation, perhaps hyperinflation," he said." source - Breirbart
The signs are everywhere
For months now, we have been publishing story after story about the rapid growth of China, and how badly out of favor the dollar has fallen. We owe nearly $2 Trillion dollars to the Communist Chinese, and they all by themselves now have the power to make Professor Igor's prediction come true. But we own many countries large amounts of money, and for the first time in our history our debt outweighs our cash flow. America is in a bad, bad place, and with each new law passed by the Obama administration, it gets worse.
