In short, the majority of the world will suffer economic catastrophe, led by the final collapse of the US and UK and the economic depression of China. Smaller nations dependent upon these three: such as Venezuela, Brazil, Australia and others will see themselves driven to the edge or at least to their knees, though none will fall over the cliff. Other nations, such as Nigeria, Somalia, Sudan, South Africa and Mexico will face their final Armageddon, becoming nations in name only (Somalia is already just that). Depending on how hard the US/UK land this year, they may just join this august list.
Finally will be a series of wars:
Argentina vs UK, where Argentina will, with minimal conflict take the Falklands
Israel vs Hezbullah and Turkey, a war of mass civilian casualties and as usual, little real results.
Turkey vs Arab partisans, Kurds, S.Cypriots, Greeks, Bulgarians, Serbian mercenaries and finally Russia. This will end in a Turkish defeat and the military coup of its Islamic government.
The Koreas, where South Korea will finally enact a unification of the peninsula under its rule.
Somalia will see attacks by various world navies and invasion by Ethiopia and Kenya.
Afghanistan will finally find resolution of a sort, with the total withdrawal of foreign troops and a renewed bought of anarchy and civil war that will last into the next decade or more, with India, Russia, Iran and Pakistan making sure that no one clan or tribe comes to dominate that living hell.
A war in the Persian Gulf will also grind slowly. Started swiftly by the dieing American Empire, which itself will quickly withdraw, the Gulf States will be caught in a prolonged state of conflict, raking in the riches from the price of oil, while their peoples bleed and die.
Finally, the US itself will more than likely descend into a civil war with the newly minted Republic of Texas and possibly the old Confederacy, as well as various cartels of defunct Mexico.

Help me understand.
I post below an article from Russian blogger Stanislav Mishin, a Russian Orthodox Christian. Stanislav posted this 12/31/2010 at 11:28 PM. He predicts what he foresees, the good and the bad, for Russia and the USA. It was he who coined the term “sheeple” to describe our complacent voters.
