Bad Predictions for the US Future

Oh man, I didn't need to read this stuff so early in the morning, but the predictions look bleak for the future. (but then again, there are folks who make a living being prophets of doom.) I hope that this is just wishful thinking among those who hate the US for our freedoms (Russians and conservatives).

As if Things Weren't Bad Enough, Russian Professor Predicts End of U.S.
In Moscow, Igor Panarin's Forecasts Are All the Rage; America 'Disintegrates' in 2010

"There's a 55-45% chance right now that disintegration will occur," he says (to happy Russians who have grown very anti-American)....

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.

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.
Could that be why the US military is ready for action?
Unrest caused by bad economy may require military action, report says
"Widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities ... to defend basic domestic order and human security," the report said, in case of "unforeseen economic collapse," "pervasive public health emergencies," and "catastrophic natural and human disasters," among other possible crises.

The report also suggests the new (Barack Obama) administration could face a "strategic shock" within the first eight months in office.

Good lord, are end of year predictions usually this bleak or was I not paying attention?

Do you think that if it became known that a giant asteroid was to crash into the earth that all this world unrest would stop and we would come together as nations? Oh hell, we can't even come together as a country.

Did you see this? Racism is splitting the GOP That's so 40 years ago. Grow up already.

My art friend who lives in Israel is terrified that there is going to be a war. She wishes us a happy new year. Indeed.
