A Russian professor and former KGB analyst, Igor Panarin, is still receiving international attention for his prediction made a decade ago that the United States will disintegrate by next year, Jerome Corsi’s Red Alert reports.
Panarin claims mass immigration, economic decline, moral degradation and an inevitable dollar collapse will trigger a U.S. civil war by fall, followed by a complete break-up by 2010.
He believes the U.S. will split into five distinct regions:
The “California Republic,” including the West Coast states of California, Oregon and Washington, as well as Nevada, Idaho, Utah and Arizona, that Panarin predicts will be part of China or under Chinese influence;
“North Central America,” including Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio, that Panarin predicts will be part of Canada or under Canadian influence;
The “Atlantic America,” including Kentucky, Tennessee, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, the District of Columbia, Virginia, West Virginia, North and South Carolina, and all of New England, that Panarin predicts may join the EU;
The “Texas Republic,” including New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and Florida, that Panarin predicts will be part of Mexico or under Mexican influence;
The “Offshore U.S.,” with Alaska going to Russia and Hawaii going to either Japan or China.
While Panarin’s theory is often dismissed as a version of anti-Americanism coming back into vogue in Russia, he gained widespread attention after he published an article in Izvestia, one of Russia’s largest daily newspapers.

In his 25-year financial services career, Corsi has been a noted financial services speaker and writer, publishing three books and numerous articles in professional financial services journals and magazines.
