Russian professor forecasts US break-up

but I wish that China, India and Russia break up in 2020

MOSCOW, Dec 31 — For a decade, Russian academic Igor Panarin has been predicting the US will fall apart in 2010.

For most of that time, he admits, few took his argument — that an economic and moral collapse will trigger a civil war and the eventual break-up of the US — very seriously. Now he’s found an eager audience: Russian state media.

In recent weeks, he’s been interviewed as much as twice a day about his predictions. “It’s a record,” says Prof Panarin. “But I think the attention is going to grow even stronger.”

Prof Panarin, 50 years old, is not a fringe figure. A former KGB analyst, he is dean of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s academy for future diplomats.

He is invited to Kremlin receptions, lectures students, publishes books, and appears in the media as an expert on US-Russia relations……….

Panarin posits, in brief, that mass immigration, economic decline, and moral degradation will trigger a civil war next fall and the collapse of the dollar. Around the end of June 2010, or early July, he says, the US will break into six pieces — with Alaska reverting to Russian control…..

Panarin’s apocalyptic vision “reflects a very pronounced degree of anti-Americanism in Russia today,” says Vladimir Pozner, a prominent TV journalist in Russia. “It’s much stronger than it was in the Soviet Union.

Pozner and other Russian commentators and experts on the US dismiss Panarin’s predictions. “Crazy ideas are not usually discussed by serious people,” says Sergei Rogov, director of the government-run Institute for US and Canadian Studies, who thinks Panarin’s theories don’t hold water…..

In September 1998, he attended a conference in Linz, Austria, devoted to information warfare, the use of data to get an edge over a rival. It was there, in front of 400 fellow delegates, that he first presented his theory about the collapse of the US in 2010.

“When I pushed the button on my computer and the map of the United States disintegrated, hundreds of people cried out in surprise,” he remembers. He says most in the audience were sceptical. “They didn’t believe me.”………
