Interesting article today in the Wall Street Journal: “As if Things Weren’t Bad Enough, Russian Professor Predicts End of U.S.”
Apparently back in 1998 Russian professor (and former KGB analyst) and dean of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s academy for future diplomats, Igor Panarin, predicted the disintegration of the U.S into six separate regions in 2010. Each of the regions — weakened by economic- and ethnic-related strife — would then be gobbled up or “adopted” by foreign powers or interests, including China, Japan, Canada, Russia, Mexico, and the European Union. He continues to stand by his prediction and believes that the current situation only lends more credence to it.
Others seem to think so, too. His prediction is certainly getting him a lot of air time, and these days and he is apparently being interviewed about twice a day.
I highly recommend reading the article yourself — click on the title above, or if your mouse is tired you can click here.
While on one hand, I would be surprised if things turned out exactly as he predicts; on the other hand I know that the Bible does predict that the U.S. will experience dire consequences in the near future if it does not repent and seek the God that has prospered her.
