In America we often view ourselves as the most powerful nation on earth, but are we? Just because we used to be doesn’t mean will will maintain that power for eternity. If truth be told we are literally heading down a path of pure destruction financially and we are witnessing our once powerful nation crumble as the Roman Empire once had. Every year, hundreds of billions of U.S. dollars goes straight to the pockets of Communist China and such massive amounts of wealth transfer is having significant impacts here in America.
Our former major manufacturing cities, like Detroit, are rotting away in shambles while skyscrapers are being resurrected all across China; not to mention the hundreds of thousands of products on our shelves with the stamp “Made in China” written all over them. Today, we buy far more from China then they do from us, which means China is literally swimming in US dollars giving them leverage over the US.
So what do they plan on doing with all this wealth? Could they be gearing up to make their renminbithe world currency? Could they be planning to take the world by surprise and do something major? The video below reveals all this and more…

“We are glad that our countries have good relations. Russia is a good neighbor for us, and Astrakhan is a key region for the development of our relations,” Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said
ASTRAKHAN, September 28. /ITAR-TASS/. President of Iran Hassan Rouhani arrived in the Russian southern city of Astrakhan on Sunday to take part in the 4th summit of heads of state of the Caspian littoral states. It is his first visit to Russia.
At the instruction of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Rouhani was welcomed by governor of the Astrakhan region Alexander Zhilkin, the press service of the Astrakhan region governor told ITAR-TASS.
The Iranian president noted that he valued much his country’s relations with Russia. “We are glad that our countries have good relations. Russia is a good neighbor for us, and Astrakhan is a key region for the development of our relations,” Rouhani said, noting that Astrakhan had prepared good grounds for the presidents of the Caspian countries to work at their summit.
Alexander Zhilkin, in turn, noted he had visited Iranian provinces more than once. “Iran is a very interesting, promising and hospitable country,” he said.
“For Astrakhan region, Iran is a strategic partner, our cooperation is developing in various areas, both economic and humanitarian. We maintain close business contacts with the Iranian consulate in Astrakhan,” he said.
According to the press service of the Astrakhan regional administration, first contacts between the region and Iranian provinces were established in the 1990s. Most close contacts were established with Iran’s northern provinces of Gilan, Mazandaran and Golestan located along the Caspian Sea coast. In 2013, trade turnover reached 250 million U.S. dollars. More than 160 enterprises with Iranian capital and an office of an Iranian bank are active in the Astrakhan region. The region has close humanitarian relations with Iran too.
On Monday, Astrakhan will host the 4th summit of heads of state of Caspian littoral states. Taking part in it will be the leaders of Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Russia and Turkemnista.
New generation short-range anti-ship missiles and UAVs have been unveiled in Iran. Tehran’s revamped military doctrine is based on “deterrence and effective defense,” President Hassan Rouhani said at the presentation.
Ghadir cruise missiles with a range 100 kilometers are designed to engage ships, reported the IRNA news agency. Iran uses the Ghadir system to reinforce its destroyers and coastal batteries.
The range of another cruise missile, the Nasr-e Basir, has not been disclosed, although the agency announced it could “operate in silence,” without specifying exactly what this quality means.
The Iranian military also showed two new high-altitude drones, the Karrar-4 and the Mohajer-4. The latter is capable of mapping a territory for military or civilian use.
President Hassan Rouhani who attended the military hardware presentation stressed that while his country does not aim to possess a nuclear weapon, it cannot ignore external threats to the country.
“We do not sit idly by with regard to threats. We do not remain calm towards plots by the enemy,”Rouhani said, as cited by the AP. The president did not specify the adversary’s name in a speech broadcasted live by state TV.
“We have not been, we are not and we will not pursue weapons of mass destruction,” Rouhani said on Sunday. “For religious and humanitarian reasons we pursue neither nuclear nor microbial nor chemical weapons,” he said, calling for a nuclear-free Middle East, with an obvious reference to Israel’s undeclared atomic arsenal.
After relative moderate Rouhani succeeded hawkish President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad last year, he promised to interact with the West diplomatically. He made positive advances, considerably lifting international sanctions against Iran and managing to stop “nuclear Iran” hysteria in the Western world.
Rouhani also made reports about the country’s military advances more discreet.
“Widespread publicity of major military exercises, previously the norm, has been minimal,” The Washington Free Beacon’s report acknowledged recently.
Iran adopted a program to develop the national defense industry and produce necessary military hardware, from tanks and mortars to missiles and submarines, domestically in 1992. Since then the country’s heavy weapons production, particularly rocket and missile engineering, has made tremendous progress. And not only in the military sphere – firm steps towards space exploration have also been taken, with Iran’s first space launch performed back in 2007.
Today, Iran has surface-to-surface missiles with a 2,000-kilometer range, capable of reaching any US military base in the region, and also Israel, Tehran’s long-lasting adversaries since the 1979 revolution.
