The United States of Splitistan

A former KBG agent,Igor Panarin, predicts the US will split into several pieces by 2010, mostly beholden to outside entities. Not likely. At least not like he predicts. Only an outsider with little apparent understanding of the US would say that Texas would willingly become part of Mexico, that the Carolinas would join New England rather than the other southern states, or that Utah would team up with California. Given such huge misunderstandings of the US, his scenario becomes bizarre and pointless.

He’s been predicting this for ten years. Russian state media has recently picked up on it. That their confederation of republics fell apart doesn’t mean the United States will. Could happen, I suppose, but more likely as loose confederations between groups of states, and not beholden to outside interests.
