Igor's Crystal Ball

Igor Panarin's prediction that the United States will break up into six parts received mention in The Wall Street Journal.

Here's a map of how the pieces will fall after the civil war and breakup.

Nyet, I don't think so. Igor, the Alaskans would be a rough mooseburger to swallow even for you ex-KGBers. Then you've separated Kansas and Missouri gun-toting rednecks from Oklahoma and Arkansas gun-toting rednecks. Lumping Tennessee and South Carolina with New York and Massachusetts just won't work. And if you think Texas will dominate the deep South, you've never discussed football with any hardcore fan of a SEC team.

The best propaganda weaves some truth into the govnó. In my effort to wade through Igor's fecal matter, I'd say it was indeed true that U.S. foreign debt resembles a pyramid scheme. There's one more nugget:

Americans hope President-elect Barack Obama "can work miracles," he wrote. "But when spring comes, it will be clear that there are no miracles."
