In the mean time US will collapse precisely because they won't have a war to save them. According to this group's calculations, US wants to goad Russia into making a mistake, and the smartest thing to do would be to deny them war.
Statistics on US population living on some form of government program is staggering to say the least. Especially when compared to earlier years.

Meanwhile, the European Union is getting stronger everyday. The EU is a good example of how a peaceful, global civilization can get started. Russia, China, America. They are all too big and they all want too much power for themselves. They hold too much ''pride'' in who they are and their heritage, while this nationalistic pride is nothing more than a cultural illusion.
I live in Europe, and things are actually going quite well. Europe still has some of the highest living quantities available and holds the most socialistic countries (Russia is nowhere near to be seen on this list)
Norway (EEA & EFTA)
And by the way, I don't think that America and it's economy is going to collapse anytime soon, considering the huge amounts of natural resources the US still holds and their sheer global (military) power. If you consider China or Russia to be a superpower, than the US is most certainly a hyperpower.
And all you western naysayers and doomprayers, why don't you move to Russia or to some other 2nd or 3rd world dictatorial country? No... just keep dooming and talking bad about the western civilization. And to all who complain about the west and who don't live here, jealously much?
''If we cannot human rights, freedom, a high HDI and high minimum wage, than surely the west can't!'' Oh please. Why don't you start fixing your country instead of trying to destroy the successful ways of the west?
