America's military and economic empire could collapse at any time,
but predicting the precise day, week or month of its potential demise is
unattainable, according to a former New York Times war correspondent who spoke with Raw Story.
"The when and how is very dangerous to predict because there's always
some factor that blindsides you that you didn't expect,"
Pulitzer-winning journalist Chris Hedges said in an exclusive interview.
"It doesn't look good. But exactly how it plays out and when it plays
out, having covered disintegrating societies, it's impossible to tell."
