Interesting perspective on the global economic crisis from Moscow today.
MOSCOW – If you’re inclined to believe Igor Panarin, and the Kremlin wouldn’t mind if you did, then President Barack Obama will order martial law this year, the United States will split into six rump-states before 2011, and Russia and China will become the backbones of a new world order.
The prediction from Panarin, a former spokesman for Russia’s Federal Space Agency and reportedly an ex-KGB analyst, meshes with the negative view of the United States that has been flowing from the Kremlin in recent years, in particular from Vladimir Putin.
Putin, the former president who is now prime minister, has likened the United States to Nazi Germany’s Third Reich and blames Washington for the global financial crisis that has pounded the Russian economy.
Wow. That is a lot to digest on a Tuesday morning. Drawing analogies between the US and Nazi Germany is completely absurd and sounds like an inflammatory ploy for attention. Add to that the assertion that Obama will declare Martial Law and you are really stirring the pot. After all, many Americans are worried that the Obama Administration will be coming for their guns as it is. With talk of Martial Law, that fear will only grow.
So, it this new world order, the US will somehow divide into six states and Alaska with all of her resources will return to Russia. That one sounds like a plea for Russian Nationalism and a rallying cry for a people that live in a state who has collapsed. Not really surprising that they would want to drag us down to their level.
China and Russia will become the backbone of the new world economy. Think about that one for a minute, two communist or former communist powers leading the world. If that were to happen, you would see two things right away. First, we would likely see a decline in the world’s population as all the led-tainted products from China spread out throughout the world. Secondly, you could say goodbye to any world aid efforts from the dominant powers. Let’s face it, neither country thinks much of those outside of their boarders. Come to think of it, doesn’t one of them have a giant wall….
The last time our country was attacked and threatened by a foreign power, we rallied together and came out stronger then before. Perhaps comments like Mr. Panarin’s will help to wake this country up and get us to realize that we are under constant attack and we all need to pull together and fight for our nation.
