Poor Americans, not only is the economy in trouble and two wars ongoing it also appears that it is sandwiched in between two potentially failed states, Mexico and er Canada, no really Canada.
The Mexican collapse is somewhat more plausible as it does have a very violent drug war fuelled by the vast profits to be made in the sale of illegal drugs to the West. Thanks druggies, thanks prohibitionists.
Canada is a less plausible candidate for collapse, I'm not one to scare monger but perhaps there is a reason American publications are spreading the idea of a Canadian collapse.
