We, Americans, are going through hard times. Several thousands of us have lost our jobs, the economy is in recession, the market is down and no one knows when things are going to look up. Amidst all these events, a Russian academic, Igor Panarin, has been predicting the U.S. will fall apart in 2010. Well earlier when things were okay no one believed him. But now people are taking notice. Check out his map which shows a disintegrated America.

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.

"It would be reasonable for Russia to lay claim to Alaska; it was part of the Russian Empire for a long time." A framed satellite image of the Bering Strait that separates Alaska from Russia like a thread hangs from his office wall. "It's not there for no reason," he says with a sly grin.

Prof. Panarin, 50 years old, is a former KGB analyst and dean of the Russian Foreign Ministry's academy for future diplomats. He appears in the media as an expert on U.S.A.- Russia relations.

We'll keep our fingers crossed and hope that such a situation never arises. Meanwhile we were wondering what were Russia's chances of standing united if America disintegrated? In today's global economy things are poised like a pack of dominoes cards, if one falls, can the others maintain their balance for long?

What are your opinions and feedback? Drop a line. And here is a toast to a strong and integrated U.S.A. :).
