Swelling populations and a global tide of immigration will present new security challenges for the United States by straining resources and stoking extremism and civil unrest in distant corners of the globe, CIA Director Michael V. Hayden said in a speech yesterday.
The population surge could undermine the stability of some of the world’s most fragile states, especially in Africa, while in the West, governments will be forced to grapple with ever larger immigrant communities and deepening divisions over ethnicity and race, Hayden said.
Hayden, speaking at Kansas State University, described the projected 33 percent growth in global population over the next 40 years as one of three significant trends that will alter the security landscape in the current century. By 2050, the number of humans on Earth is expected to rise from 6.7 billion to more than 9 billion, he said.
Mr. Hayden may not have noticed, but racial tensions, food shortages, overpopulation, lawlessness, increasing crime, poverty, etc... are already afflicting a rapidly crumbling United States.

CHICAGO, Illinois (AP) -- Police planned to increase patrols and put SWAT officers and specialized units on the streets over the weekend, a show of force aimed at deterring violence like the three dozen shootings that left nine people dead last weekend.
Meanwhile, religious leaders said they had persuaded some churches to open their doors in the afternoons and evenings to protect people from gunfire.
The recent violence followed a six-month period during which more than 20 Chicago public school students were shot to death.
... Last weekend, there were 36 shootings....
Races in Chicago:
- Black (36.8%)
- White Non-Hispanic (31.3%)
- Hispanic (26.0%)
- Other race (13.6%)
- Two or more races (2.9%)
- Chinese (1.1%)
- Filipino (1.0%)
- Asian Indian (0.9%)
- American Indian (0.7%)
- Other Asian (0.5%)
In the above racial designation it needs to be noted that the census counts north africans and middle-easterners as "White" so the percentage of actual Whites of European descent is lower than 31%.
An Augusta, Ga., group, The National Policy Institute, has meshed the figures on fertility rates with the continents and races on Planet Earth—to visualize what the world will look like in 2060. [Global White Population To Plummet, download it here.]
In 1950, whites were 28 percent of world population and Africans 9 percent, a ratio of three-to-one. In 2060, the ratio will remain the same. But the colors will be reversed. People of African ancestry will be 25 percent of the world's population. People of European descent will have fallen to 9.8 percent.
More arresting is that the white population is shrinking not only in relative but in absolute terms. Two hundred million white people, one in every six on earth—a number equal to the entire population of France, Britain, Holland and Germany—will vanish by 2060.
The Caucasian race is going the way of the Mohicans.
Arabic peoples, 94 million at the birth of Israel in 1948, outnumbered seven to one by Europeans, will rise to 743 million in 2060, a tenfold increase, and will be 75 percent of the white population.
Fleshing out the NPI picture is the U.N. population survey of mid-2007 that points to the 21st century disappearance of Western Man.
By 2050, a fourth of all the people of Eastern Europe will have vanished. Ukraine will lose one-third of its population. Russia, 150 million at the breakup of the Soviet Union, 142 million today, will be down to 108 million.
Such losses dwarf what Hitler and Stalin together did to these countries.
By 2050, Iran's population will have risen from today's 71 million to 100 million. Pakistan will add 84 million to reach almost 300 million, the U.S. population today. Afghanistan's population will triple from 27 million to 79 million. Iraq's will go from 29 million to 62 million. The destinies of these nations will be beyond the capacity of an aging, dwindling, dying West to dictate.The U.N. statistics, however, show the populations of Northern, Western and Southern Europe stabilizing or falling only slightly.
Interesting that the "Poor Third World" which is being sustained by Western Policy and funds is having a population boom.
Next time you hear a rock star or a politician moan about aids in africa or starving children in Tibet, remind them that that world is tripling in population growth even as they cannot tend to those they already have...
