Panarin said [Igor Panarin in an interview transcribed by Izvestia today] in the interview that the financial crisis will worsen, unemployment will rise and people will lose their savings—factors that will cause the country’s breakup.

“Dissatisfaction is growing, and it is only being held back at the moment by the elections, and the hope” that President-elect Barack Obama “can work miracles,” he said. “But when spring comes, it will be clear that there are no miracles.”

The U.S. will fracture into six parts: the Pacific coast; the South; Texas; the Atlantic coast, central states and the northern states.
