    A Russian scholar is predicting that the United States' current financial crisis will lead to the breakup of the country.

    Igor Panarin, a professor at the diplomatic academy of Russia's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, told the newspaper Izvestia on Monday that America will break apart into six regions following the crisis.

    "Dissatisfaction is growing, and it is only being held back at the moment by the elections, and the hope that [President-elect] Obama can work miracles," according to a translation by Bloomberg. "But when spring comes, it will be clear that there are no miracles."

    Panarin predicts the U.S. will split into: the Pacific, the South, Texas, the Atlantic coast, the central states and the northern states, and hinted that Alaska could be Russia's for the taking.

    That's it, my world is coming to an end. It's time to hunker down, hit the gun shows and hope for the best.

    Eh, I dunno how likely this is. Just seems the guy wants the US to go the way of the Soviet Union. Is it in the cards? Don't know, but don't think so.

    I was just looking up stuff, but all I can find is the short story. What's the reasoning behind it? I mean, like what's the scenario and whatnot? It's not anywhere. So, I dunno, it's a pretty useless piece of info. = \ If anyone finds it, I'd be interested to read it.

    Yeah, but how certain is it that the US is going to break up into six pieces in the short term? You see what I'm asking? Like, how does he explain the possibility or the conditions that would have to emerge for this to actually happen, and how likely is it? And just who is this guy and why is his opinion so important?

    I mean, really, what are Hugo Chavez and Putin do about it? If that were the argument it'd be pretty ridiculous. It's probably gonna have to do with domestic factors. I just wish I knew what they are or what he's talking about. Otherwise it's just... some guys opinion.

    Why is this news? If we made a headline every day for every insult the Soviet Union threw at us back in the Cold War days, we would've run out of room. Let the Russians with their vodka insult us all they want. They never were and never will be anywhere as good as America is.

    That's fine with me. The Libtards need to have their own country. Maybe they'll merge with Canada.

    The majority of the country is moderate to conservative.
