A story in the El Paso Times looks at a U.S. military report that find Mexico to be increasingly unstable:
The command's "Joint Operating Environment (JOE 2008)" report, which contains projections of global threats and potential next wars, puts Pakistan on the same level as Mexico. "In terms of worse-case scenarios for the Joint Force and indeed the world, two large and important states bear consideration for a rapid and sudden collapse: Pakistan and Mexico.
But how can this be? According to Russian foreign policy expert Igor Panarin, it's America that is supposed to collapse. And when that happens, according to a Wall Street Journal interview with Panarin, "Texas will be the heart of "The Texas Republic," a cluster of states that will go to Mexico or fall under Mexican influence." Confusing. But it looks like Canada will be the big winner in all this. Then again, maybe not.
