Silk Road: A Changing World

Written June 2014

This project has been a theory printed and discussed for several years by The Nation, The Strategic Culture Foundation, Huffington Post, and additional sources, even mildly in the New York Times. On May 20th and 21st of 2014 a private meeting occurred between Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping in Shanghai, China. And now, this hypothesis seems to be reality! The largest civilization transformation project on Earth is now drawing near. As a result of this historic meeting, the Silk Road Project will go forward.

The Silk Road Economic Belt, Silk Road Maritime Expansion and Eurasian Economic Union to include countries as far west as Germany and Brazil is a real probability!  In this new reality, America seems somewhat excluded and its currency will not be predominant and at the very least frowned upon. The probable loss of trade and purchases away from the US Dollar may well be staggering to its value! Our international Wall Street banks, following the offshore positioning of our 1% rich of our nation as well as international industries, are now doing most of their business in other parts of the world as well as in other currencies.  However, America with very little in-country manufacturing will suffer greatly as its currency devalues. Only our agricultural sector, hard to relocate, will remain to profit and benefit. Our military will be used in hidden agendas to profit a few away from America’s greater good. 

Few people realize the total disregard that other Nations may have for this American President. Those countries know his ambition is to serve himself politically at the expense and possible harm of our once great country. Some countries use him and the military he controls for their good at American tax payer expense! In response, the BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia India, China and S. Africa), along with smaller nations, will join to revitalize the G-20 while discarding the G-7 controlled largely by America and its few allies. That change may occur relatively soon! China, Russia, Brazil and India are drivers of this projects creation and expansion that will transform a substantial part of this world’s future commercial, political, physical, and economic direction.
The new "Silk Road Economic Belt, the Silk Road Maritime expansion" and "Eurasian Economic Union will be built." These ambitious world-changing plans seem to be at the exclusion of this American country and President. This new policy of Russia and China leaders seems to resist ceding any control to America and other non- participating governments apart from the expansion.

The BRICS Nations as well as the Shanghai Cooperation organization (SCO) are already setting forth plans for building the Asian and Eastern European areas into a consolidated power including massive Space technology to include immediate mining of the moon for rare minerals. Its’ other priority is modernized industrial capabilities and economies that in some ways reflect America’s great capitalistic past of the early and middle 1900’s. This group is using our capitalistic history as their guidebook even as we slide into their old forms of Socialism.

Today, they have together equaled or surpassed our base capabilities in space. The disassembly of NASA and our economic and industrial demise allowed by this president allows political weakness to block our transformation back to competitive capitalism that we need badly.  China and Russia have forged ahead.
China will reportedly have first tier access to the world’s largest Siberian mineral resources of oil, gas, platinum, palladium, gold and silver and rare earth materials plus much more. Russia reportedly will have access to industrial capabilities and technologies from China and India plus outlying areas of control. Silk Road Economic belt areas will receive assistance for modernizing old manufacturing and building new. These countries are moving in opposition to this American President who has stopped all real capabilities in American manufacturing growth. In effect, America may well become the poor large socialistic nation China used to be as they create with
Russia and others their new form capitalism that once we were the champion. 

This new consortium already plans a moon base for mining and a real space vehicle constructed on the moon without drawbacks of gravity. Putin and Xi Jinping once having control of the new G20 will control space as well. They will lead Asian areas and have great sway in parts of the West including a willing Germany. They will out-produce America which is not hard considering this President's actions of dismembering what’s remaining of America's manufacturing industry with EPA regulation and political hostility.

We have lost the secrets of Capitalism and are committing our disappearing middle class to third world status.  We are becoming what China and Russia used to be. They are becoming what we once were. With shared military resources they arguably become superior to ours for any territorial disputes.

The Sunni Sharia groups who president Obama seemed to favor in the past will be far less willing to challenge the new BRICS consortium led by China and Russia. They will instead try to take over America, parts of Western Europe and South America where they see weaker resolve. 

The New Future
Note: My thanks to The Diplomat and Strategic Alliance for a map and some excellent descriptive verbiage. 
According to the map, the land-based “New Silk Road” will begin in China before stretching west through Lanzhou (Gansu province), Urumqi (Xinjiang), and Khorgas (Xinjiang), which is near the border with Kazakhstan. The Silk Road then runs southwest from Central Asia to northern Iran before swinging west through Iraq, Syria, and Turkey. From Istanbul, the Silk Road crosses the Bosporus Strait and heads northwest through Europe, including Bulgaria, Romania, the Czech Republic, and Germany. Reaching Duisburg in Germany, it swings north to Rotterdam in the Netherlands. From Rotterdam, the path runs south to Venice, Italy — where it meets up with the equally ambitious Maritime Silk Road.

The Maritime Silk Road will begin in Quanzhou in Fujian province, and also hit Guangzhou (Guangdong pronvince), Beihai (Guangxi), and Haikou (Hainan) before heading south to the Malacca Strait. From Kuala Lumpur, the Maritime Silk Road heads to Kolkata, India then crosses the rest of the Indian Ocean to Nairobi, Kenya (the Xinhua map does not include a stop in Sri Lanka, despite indications in February that the island country would be a part of the Maritime Silk Road). From Nairobi, the Maritime Silk Road goes north around the Horn of Africa and moves through the Red Sea into the Mediterranean, with a stop in Athens before meeting the land-based Silk Road in Venice.

What does this mean? It means with the continued socialization of America by this president we have lost our economic direction and right to lead. Federal government is out of control. China, Russia and India have sufficient American debt to destroy our economy. They probably won't and don't need to use it. President Obama is destroying our will to be capitalists. His disregard for law or restrictions under our Constitution is now clear. He has tested our Constitution arguably in the 1st Amendment, 2nd Amendment and 4th Amendment. To be fair the last president restricted the 4th as well. We have been badly led to compete.

There are additional dangers for the Silk Road operation that must be resolved for all parties. Mullah Muhammad Omar is in Qatar.  Mullah Omar is the most successful Leader/General in the history of Muslim lore since Salah ad Din (Saladin) in 1137 AD. Mullah Omar has been responsible for killing more American soldiers as leader of the Taliban and the war chief to Bin laden than any other since the Vietnam War! He has claim to much of the territory in “Silk Road.”President Obama owes the world to quit arming Sunni groups of any kind! These groups he arms will attack “Silk Road” as well.  

In order for America to move forward to be competitive: America has the greatest Agricultural capability on Earth even though badly restrained by this Government. Set it free, grow unlimited and export.  

America must regain the manufacturing base it once had from 1870 through the 1960’s. Failure to regain that will create a slow slide already begun with the last president and especially this president. We must stop this Federal Government singular rule policy and be again openly competitive and wholly “Capitalistic” unrestrained by federal government rules! Or America is doomed to be in a long cycle depression like Russia under a Stalin or a China under a Mao if we don’t.

China and Russia today are moving to what we were and what we invented. We must change Washington and their Socialistic rule of the States now or be lost along with future generations of our children!
