I was actually allowing myself to take his theory seriously until this part:
“Around the end of June 2010…the U.S. will break into six pieces – with Alaska reverting to Russian control.”
Heh. He’d like that I bet. Alaskans would probably fight to the death before ceding control to Russia. And that’s assuming they’d be on their own.
But nothing unites us Americans better than an outside threat. We saw it during the big wars and after 9/11.
The rest of the theory is just nuts: California being under Chinese control? Canada taking everything north of New Mexico? New England joing the European Union (although that one is the only barely plausible theory)? And Texas being absorbed into Mexico? Realy?!
If Alaskans would fight off Russion dominance vehemently, I can’t imagine what Texans would do when the Mexican guard shows up. I give them 2 days at the most before giving up. I mean they have guns with cameras mounted to trees that allow people to hunt over the Internet there, these are not submissive people.
Thankfully a lot of Prof. Panarin’s peers in Russia and most political experts in the rest of the world think he’s a quack. All it takes to see this is one look at his predicted map of how things will end up:
