The article is right on the money, but the country is wrong - it is written about Russia.
I predict that the author of the "prediction" will disintegrate before the US.

Talking free will

dont want to judge ur sentiments, but think about this.

if GOD only cares abt people who constantly praises god, then muslim countries should do way way better they pray so many times a day. nobody follows religion and GOD like muslims do , not even hard core christians . even hindus pray a lot. US growth is clearly not due to the things u mentioned . its due to their relentless pursuit of growth. along with GOD US also believes in 'free will'. btw, i am not atheist, but just AGNOSTIC.

Maybe we are not looking at this article in the right context.

This artilce was written for the purpose of Russian version of 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'. So it was written in the context of commedy. Lets read it and laugh about it as was intended by its author.

ha ha ha ha ha ha, it means I just finished reading the article.

This is a bunch of baloney.
Whether this is a recession, a depression or a hyperinflationary cycle and economic wipeout, America will remain the pre-eminent world power in the next quarter century.
The US has the most trusted currency int he world(sometimes I wonder why, but the fact is it remains such or else its value should rationally be a lot lower right now).
It has the best universities and research centers, and remains a magnet to the worlds most motivated people.
It has the strongest military in direct face to face combat.
It has the largest, most well integrated, and diverse economy in the world.
Cultural differences while they exist are far less than many other democracies, mainly since this is a newer country built on diversity and tolerance. They have just elected Obama as president, if that does not represent the best of secular ideals, I am not sure what does. The US has a lot of cultural bonds in entertainment, sports, social programs like Medicare/Social Securities, Large corporations and brands etc that are remarkable cohesive forces.

This is a pure wish list from a bitter former KGB man, who is given a megaphone by an even more bitter Putin, who is still smarting from the disintegration of the USSR and wants the same for America.
Dream on former KGB, dream on. If you want to know how united this country is, just remember back to the period after 9/11.

Default Watch this video...

I have many times pondered on the strength/power of dollar value and I feel apart from factors like globalization/petro dollars most important factor is America's politics.

No matter who is in the White House, no matter what their domestic politics are, no matter what their agreement(s)/disagreement(s) are they follow a well established strategic template on the International arena always keeping their focus on fortifying their super power status/dollar strength.

Very fact that dollar value is not as low as it should be amidst the current crisis shows the value that dollar is enjoying(when compared to the value of the currencies of other economies that didn't actually collapse as did American economy) may not be the real value but a strategised value.

Watch this video on globalization (if you have not already watched as it was shared on this forum twice) though it's a bit long and seems like exaggeration at few spots(speaker himself says he may be exaggerating or something like that..) it helps one understand few things.

http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...+dollar+&hl=en

Also few facts from this video and some of those youtube videos on terrorism kind of throw another perspective to Iraq war and on the possible Iran strategy.

But as per the disintegration of America I agree with you...it just shows how some of those guys are still kind of smarting from the disintegration of the U.S.S.R and pepping themselves with such stories.
