Far from what the mainstream media are insisting, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is not a "rival" to the Free Trade Area of the Asian Pacific (FTAAP), but in fact is a "stepping stone" toward the FTAAP.
Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei made a public statement on April 9 denouncing the Saudi airstrikes in Yemen as “a crime” and “a genocide.”

Learning to speak Chinese may be a really good investment. In 2009, billionaire financier and establishment powerbroker George Soros called for the communist regime ruling mainland China to “own” what he referred to as the “New World Order.” In 2015, it has become clear that Beijing is stepping up to the plate as its agents infiltrate the full architecture of existing “global governance” institutions, even while adding their own totalitarian-minded tentacles to it. And despite the effort to portray near-bankrupt Western governments as helpless and confused spectators in the whole process, the globalist European and American establishment’s fingerprints are all over the rise of the Chinese Communist autocrats, and the accompanying decline of the West.
As the U.S. government goes deeper into debt and loses influence around the world while Beijing rises, even traditional U.S. allies are rushing to join a controversial Communist Chinese-led international bank expected to play a major role in advancing globalization and so-called “global governance.” The Shanghai-based Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) already includes many of the world’s most powerful governments, with its list of prospective founding members growing to almost 50. Some analysts are even claiming a new era of “Pax Sinica” is replacing the supposed U.S.-led world order of past generations.
