Russians Fighting Propaganda Cold War

I caught this artcle on The Wall Street Journal today. Seem that once again our 'Eastern Comrades' are professing doom and gloom yet again.
MOSCOW -- For a decade, Russian academic Igor Panarin has been predicting the U.S. will fall apart in 2010. For most of that time, he admits, few took his argument -- that an economic and moral collapse will trigger a civil war and the eventual breakup of the U.S. -- very seriously.
Seems this former KGB spy, oops, I mean Professor, believes that the USA will crumble and be parted piece meal to the Countries that surround us. But lets be realistic. This man has no idea of the Socio-Geographic quagmire that is our country. Can anybody see Texas under Mexican rule? Doubtful. Here is the map:



I"m sorry, I can imagine horrible, self-induced, apocalyptic problems for our beloved country, but this shows very little understanding of what it means to be an American.

LOL. That is the first thing I thought when I saw the map. Like hell Texas and the other Southern States would be under mexican control or even influence. They barely have control of their own country.

Unless Russia invaded immeditly I cannot see Alaska going Russian. In the event of a total break down and collapse of the military they would probably invite Canadian "peacekeepers" and join with Canada for protection.

Why the west coast would be taken by China or the East join with the EU is beyond me. It is doubtful if China could successfully take Taiwan.
