A revised prediction? At the end of last year I wrote about Igor Panarin’s prediction that the US would collapse within a few months into 2009… He’s revising his prediction:
With spring about to bloom and Panarin’s original prediction not close to fruition, Panarin issued a revised prediction Tuesday. The Russian foreign policy expert told students, professors, diplomats and invited press corps representatives at the Russian Diplomatic Academy that the breakup will occur before 2011. Panarin said President Obama will impose martial law on the citizens of the U.S. this year preceding the breakup.
Panarin’s evidence is somewhat general, based in part on a conclusion that the U.S. is in a state of moral decline. Panarin referred to school shootings, prison statistics, and the number of gay men as evidence of the country’s alleged moral decline. Panarin’s other evidence of impending collapse is the U.S. financial situation, particularly its declining stature as a world economic force.
What are your thoughts? Is this something America should consider possible?
