Russian Analyst Predicts Imminent Break-Up of U.S.

Igor Panarin is a top-level Russian analyst. His prediction of the soon-coming break-up of the United States is in the Wall Street Journal. To those who think things will always continue to be as they have been, his predictions will seem outlandish. I am not so sure.

Even if there is a break-up coming, I believe his map has the lines wrong. There is no way South Carolina is going to join the E.U. for example. It is much more likely that southern Cal will split from the rest and it be dominated by Mexico rather than China having inordinate influence over Arizona. His lines reflect a cultural ignorance, but his point deserves discussion. Is an amicable parting of the ways better than red-blue nation conflict?

This is an interesting map. I can see parts of the U.S. being under Mexican control, I think parts already are, but I don't see China or the EU being involved.
What brings about this prediction by a Russian? Sounds to me like its wishful thinking on his part.

I guess he must have played the Shattered Union game

If there is a breakup there will be bloodshed, just as in 1861. Leviathan will kill as many as it has to keep our "union" together.

I don't think there will be a breakup only because of the hammer that will come down on those who try (not because it's not the right thing).

I can see an old confederacy emerge in the south and by states such as Texas where there are secessionist movements underway perhaps while re-introduce a form of "slavery light", especially in light of the polarization that is taking place currently. People bringing guns to health care rallies has produced and undercurrent and unreported "seething" in the Northeast U.S. Liberals have begun to buy weaponry and ammo & this has quietly gone unreported.

Furthermore and to the amazement of many I'm sure -- If a Cheney-Palin ticket were to take place. New England would likely go quicker than you could say "F**** U". At that point the Northeast as whole says good bye along with most of the countries riches - Wall ST. etc, while the blue coastal areas of California, Oregon and Washington do likewise.

The health care debate with the racist undertones that have been occurring recently especially in the south has caused the large majority of the Northeast U.S. population to sit up and take notice.

OBAMA ASSASSINATION: If there were to be an assassination there would easily be a violent unraveling of civil war, probably starting in FOX News Headquarters with the political left instigating after years of being quiet astonishing much of the heartland - which would then react.
