Russian Professor Predicts End of U.S. – Says That America Will Collapse And Disintegrate Through Civil War In 2010

Igor Panarin… A Russian professor who used to work for the KGB and who is being compared to the man who correctly predicted the breakup of the Soviet Union 15 years before it happened… Has been talking about the break up of the USA through bankruptcy and possible civil war by the spring of 2010.

He’s been saying the same thing for 10 years now.

And people are listening. Lots of people. And it looks like the professor has some hard figures to back up his assertions… Namely the $11 Trillion in foreign debt that’s beating the USA’s economy into submission.

Professor Panarin says that the accelerating collapse of the U.S. job, credit and housing sectors will combine with the years long loss of the USA’s ability to manufacture its own needs will result in the richer states refusing to pay into the federal government in order to save their own economy’s. This will result in de facto secessions from the union.
