RUSSIAN ANALYST PREDICTS DECLINE AND BREAKUP OF USA

A leading Russian political analyst has said the economic turmoil in the United States has confirmed his long-held view that the country is heading for collapse, and will divide into separate parts.

Professor Igor Panarin said in an interview with the respected daily IZVESTIA published on Monday: "The dollar is not secured by anything. The country's foreign debt has grown like an avalanche, even though in the early 1980s there was no debt. By 1998, when I first made my prediction, it had exceeded $2 trillion. Now it is more than 11 trillion. This is a pyramid that can only collapse."

The paper said Panarin's dire predictions for the U.S. economy, initially made at an international conference in Australia 10 years ago at a time when the economy appeared strong, have been given more credence by this year's events.

When asked when the U.S. economy would collapse, Panarin said: "It is already collapsing.

Does anyone here this this guy is right?

I certainly see the breakdown of the economy, but splitting up the country? I don't know. I'm curious about what the experts here think. Thanks!

The way I see it ... its possible.

Racism is flipping ..
Rich are getting bailed out and richer ...

This country can't survive if the foundation (the regular joes) is falling apart.

example: forclosures, rising cost of living etc..

The FED bails out the top ... it will all happen again, because the foundation at the bottom is weak.
