MRT went on to report, "Panarin came up with his grim forecast while analyzing the parallels between the Soviet Union in its final days and the current situation in the United States. 'American dream ballooned seven times in 11 years. During Gorbachev era, the Soviet dream ballooned five times.' Americans hope [President] Barack Obama 'can work miracles,' he wrote. 'But when spring comes, it will be clear that there are no miracles.'"

I think the Prof. severely underestimates Americans. We may all bicker amongst ourselves, sue for absurd reasons (some seem to do it for a living), hate our government and we have a long laundry list of other faults...but
IMHO we would come together as we always seem to do when the chips are down. WE as in the people. Not the fat cats in office, but those of us busting our butts to get by. Not to mention we have the home court advantage if a war comes here.
This is not the first time that Comrade Panarin has made such a prediction. Joseph Farah, editor of World Net Daily, noted in December of 2008 that Panarin has been making similar projections for the past ten years. In a column regarding Panarin's predictions, Farah wrote, "Until recently, no one took him very seriously. And then came the economic calamity that has rocked Americans and the rest of the world, too. Now, Panarin's predictions of an end of the United States, due to economic and moral collapse, is being taken seriously by many."
Atleast China has an army.. I suspect the most far fetched part is Canada taking over... anything.
All we have to do is clip the rubber bands on their three fighter planes and they're done.

That was a valiant statement. They, the government is pulling everything off they want because they know WE WILL TAKE IT.
So far, we've taken everything they've dished out, why not this????
Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
