"I also see the world possibly divided into three Governments. The United States of America (N. America & S. America), the United States of EuroAsia (Europe, China, Russia, India, etc) and the United States of Africa (Africa & maybe parts of the Middle East). Or something like that. Anyway, all three Governments would either be friends with two or enemies altogether. Sounds a bit like 1984 to me. And if there was three governments, they would be constatly warring and signing and breaking peace treaties with each other. Also, the war would be just a ruse to keep the proles down. But really, I see horrible world events taking place, but not apocoliptic(sp?) proportions, and the second comming of Christ. If that doesn't happen, the US will go through major problems with the middle east, but will eventually come out of it, although it will be weakened in power. The EU will grow and shut out the US economically. China will become much more powerfull, either by a drastic change of regime, or the transformation to a completelly free economy under the old regime. China will become a major trading partner with the US.
