The United States is very angry that it is not getting its way. Therefore, it is testing nuclear weapons in California. As RTreports:

An intercontinental ballistic missile was fired early Monday from a facility in California, the US Air Force announced, saying the tests were a message to the world about Washington’s nuclear capabilities.

The Minuteman III missile was fitted with a “test re-entry vehicle” instead of a live thermonuclear warhead, and was test-launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base (AFB) in California at 03:36 local time (10:36 GMT), according to the Air Force statement.

And the video.

Why could this be? When one scans the internet for recent news stories about de-dollarization and US hegemony, there is no shortage of information.  The BBC chief even took shots at the US’s stranglehold over the world:

“As American media giants colonize the world, supporting a thriving British culture will be essential…And in a world where trust is at a premium, which has more heat than light, more noise than signal, we will need the BBC more than ever as a trusted guide — the place you go to find out what’s really happening and why.”

Aside from snorting my veggie juice up through my nose in a convulsion of laughter at the BBC being a “trusted guide”, de-dollarization has not slowed and, in fact, China is moving quicker than ever to get out from underneath the US dollar. Hence, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank which has recently been announced.

What makes this different than the Asian Development Bank which has been known as being compromised and run mostly by Washington and its cronies? Well, Washington is not happy about these developments. It tried to force other countries to boycott it, but failed, causing an embarrassment for the US. As satanic Zbigniew Brzezinski wrote in The Grand Chessboard: 
“…it is imperative that no Eurasian challenger (to the U.S.) emerges capable of dominating Eurasia and thus also of challenging America”

Ultimately, the US had no choice in recent months but to cooperate with the China-led development bank  after its allies would not join in a boycott.

As chairman of the Ludwig von Mises Institute, Lew Rockwell told RT, “dollar hegemony is not lasting.”

The US has since expressed that it will cooperate with the new global development fund spearheaded by China.

The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank was established last year and will be tasked with supporting the development of Asian economies outside the purview of the US government.

Six European countries including Germany have signed up, and the China-led bank will have an initial fund of $50 billion dollars, which analysts expect to double.

This development is a great example of the de-dollarization we will all experience in the coming years. It is a process. But what we see with the development bank is the US can no longer force its allies to go along with its agenda, especially against other powerful nations, such as China.

Germany has even been close to Russia in recent years, which surely has bothered Washington.  So, against Washington’s original desire, there will be no boycott of the bank. This is good news for people who champion any kind of decentralization whatsoever, but will certainly cause the US government to panic.

The US will continue to be aggravated as nations of the world go against its financial policy. When Saddam Hussein thought about a gold standard, it wasn’t long after that the US invaded.  Libya suffered a similar fate after Qaddafi pushed forward on a gold backed African currency. Where this goes we will see.

The IMF and World Bank now have competition, and the Communists running US government financial policy hate competition.

But competition is what they will have. Even nation-states are fighting back against the imperial nature of the nation-state itself. This trend will continue and it will only grow, making the US more nervous than ever before about its empire.

Unfortunately no empire ever goes down without a fight and the US government is currently engaging in multiple terrorist attacks worldwide in an attempt to use force to keep its systems alive.  It won’t work.  Whether it leads to a nuclear war remains to be seen but as I will point out in the upcoming March issue of TDV (subscribe here) the fasco-capitalist Russian government has a few very key cards up its sleeve which could leave Communist Amerika in waste.
