When a broken empire warns that “geopolitics is back”, we all know what means
Translated for the Saker Blog from the original text in Portuguese from Geopol.pt
It is clear that a new world will emerge from the current conflict in Ukraine, but this has been known since the Anglo-Saxon Bretton Woods system was declared bankrupt a good three years ago. So I don’t believe there will be any major concessions at this stage of the game from any side, neither from Russia nor from the Anglo-Saxons, who are fighting in Eastern Europe; neither from the Ukrainian pawns, nor the smaller EU pieces, nor even the French and German rooks have a voice in this; they will be used by the queen, committed to defending the king and ready to sacrifice everything for him.
America summons its allies
Convened by US Secretary of Defence Lloyd Austin, and at the behest of US Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley, representatives from 40 countries gathered last Tuesday at Ramstein Air Base, US territory in western Germany, to kick off the so-called Defense Reform Advisory Board of Ukraine, which is scheduled to meet monthly from now on. The aim is clear: to secure and extend its influence along Russia’s western borders at any cost.
Present were representatives of the 30 NATO countries, the Ukrainian Defence Minister, the Pacific partners (South Korea, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand), the Africans from Tunisia, Liberia, Morocco, and Kenya, plus Jordan, Qatar, and Israel on behalf of the Middle East. Why so many seemingly randomly chosen guests is in the realm of speculation.
Austin had just arrived from Kiev, where he had negotiated the delivery of new arms deliveries to Zelensky, among them certainly more than a handful of Javelin and Stinger missiles manufactured by Raytheon Technologies, of which he is on the board and has made himself a millionaire. Austin also made it known that time is of the essence to get even more military assistance to Ukraine, but that the stakes “extend beyond Ukraine – and even beyond Europe”. Do you see the whole picture?
Milley warned that “time is not on Ukraine’s side” and feared that the ongoing Russian operation would be “potentially decisive in the east”, predicting that the coming weeks would be “critical”.
Later, the commander told CNN that “if Russia gets away with it,” then “the so-called international order will also be lost.” So much for the ‘rules-based international order’ that is so much to Washington’s liking, leaving nothing more than a necessary redesign of the Defence architecture in accordance with the new balance of powers. A nuisance for the complex that sucks more than $800 B a year out of the American taxpayer, and for its soldiers, who will no longer be able to roam the world with impunity, as he himself did in Panama, Haiti, Yugoslavia, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
He also used the opportunity to distort the words of Sergei Lavrov: “the danger is serious, it is real, it cannot be underestimated” on the threat of a third world war, accusing the Russian minister of being “completely irresponsible” and of “making nuclear threats”. It is in this blatant fashion that the “truths” are created for the great incautious masses today.
On the other side of the Channel
For her part, the following day in London, Foreign Secretary Liz Truss assembled at the City Mansion House an exquisite representation of that network that so likes to read the tea leaves about the destinies of our continent. Among the pearls that she launched, we should retain and take seriously at least these:
– “Britain has always stood up to bullies. We have always been risk-takers.” The ice-breaking joke of protocol.
– ” We’ve got to double down on our support for Ukraine.”
– “We are already stepping up in Ukraine. The war in Ukraine is our war – it is everyone’s war because Ukraine’s victory is a strategic imperative for all of us.”
– “The UK sent weapons and trained Ukrainian troops long before the war started.”
– “We also reject the false choice between Euro-Atlantic security and Indo-Pacific security. In the modern world, we need both.”
– “All of this will require resources.” Nobody doubts that. After all the taxpayers know that they always end up paying for wars engineered by British elites, with either or both their blood, sweat, or tears.
And in a sudden pearl-clutching burst, Truss even accused China of “rapidly building an army capable of projecting power deep into areas of strategic European interest”, now reaching out to Brussels in what she described as a “Freedom Network” against the illiberal interests of Russia and China. They leave Europe and accuse those who invest in it… Why?
Thus, the head of the FCO called for a strengthening of all alliances, from NATO to the 5-Eyes, through AUKUS and the Joint Expeditionary Force, recognizing that “we need a global NATO” that is able to “prevent threats in the Indo-Pacific” and, among other things, to ensure “that democracies like Taiwan are able to defend themselves”.
For anyone who doubts what she was talking about, she concluded with a “Your Excellencies, ladies and gentlemen, geopolitics is back!”.
This is how a broken empire talks, and we know what that means. The only question that remains is: Who is the queen and who is the king?
Although beeing myself portuguese, I wasn’t aware of this portuguese web page. (although 90% of the articles are from foreigners)
The portuguese version, seems a mix version of European Portuguese and Brazilian portuguese (strange) – don’t know who is the author. Never heard of him
They (Empire axis) seem prepared to launch a full total world war.
It is a very high gamble, with very very dangerous consequences
Who’s War is this? Just this week London made it very clear and who actually runs NATO.
The return of geopolitics: Foreign Secretary’s Mansion House speech at the Lord Mayor’s 2022 Easter Banquet
Building the Network of Liberty: Foreign Secretary’s speech
These speeches by Liz Truss who actually blurted out the truth to Lavrov – the UK does not actually recognize any sovereignty whatsoever.
Global Britain is now in your face.
Truss said Ukraine is ‘our’ war.
The Empire is flailing, totally bankrupt. Its previous wars were its wars.
The question is not which King (likely Charles) but how to defeat it.
As it is a financial Empire (post colonial) based in the City of London, a Corporation, 4 major economies must apply well proven tools.
Glass-Steagall, bank separation, as FDR in 1934 and today China does. Then as Glazyev in Russia, a new currency arrangement, post PetroEurodollar – Rublegas, Ruble-Rupee, Ruble-Renminbi.
Lawfully this Empire uses financial sanction warfare.
A month ago Truss didn’t know where the city of Rostov-on-Don was and wanted it returned to Ukraine. I wonder what the million or so “little people” living in the city thought when they heard that? (sigh)
Trust me, the UK armed forces would last about 5 minutes against Russia. We’ve been cutting our armed forces personnel for 40 years and when they spent a couple of billion on a pair of new aircraft carriers (Gordon Brown’s election bribe to some Scottish voters) they didn’t have enough money to buy the aircraft too. So we built two aircraft carriers without aircraft. Seems an awfully expensive cruise liner, eh??
I’m very keen to see Liz Truss, Tobias Ellwood, Chris Bryant and several other MPs ‘take up arms and go and fight in Ukraine’.
They’d probably all come back in body bags.

I congratulate the saker’s translator for this excellent translation of an interesting article. It exposes once more the whole hypocrisy of the West.
I’d just like to ask permission for an alternative translation based on my understanding of one of the last paragraphs:
‘And in a sudden outburst of concern for the interests of the european people, Truss also accused China of “rapidly building an army capable of projecting power deeply into areas of European strategic interest,” and reached out to Brussels in what she describes as a “Freedom Network” against the illiberal interests of Russia and China. England leaves the European Union and now accuse those who invest in it… Why?’
The author did use Europe in place of European Union in the last sentence. I’m from Brazil, and so I may be missing something, but I understand Europe as the geographic place. Perhaps the author wrote to make fun of England thinking it’s so powerful that it can even relocate itself geographically.
As I said, this makes for a good reading. Thanks for posting it.
“The only question that remains is: Who is the queen and who is the king?”
As I’ve cautioned many times, ad nauseum, on this site its the 1 square mile of banksters’ head-offices called the City of London’s tail which wags the American dog.
As I have said twice before in this valuable place: there will be a war that the gringos will try to keep in europe, but won’t.
Good luck for all of us.
The King is the Jews, the queen is USA, Britain is the princes, France & Germany maybe rooks but the rest (Baltics, Poland etc.) Pawns.
The letter Z can also mean the beginning or the end of the sh.t above.
Simple. The Queen is of course the old British Empire personified by Queen Elizabeth literally. The King we must defend on behalf of the Queen, is off course USA the new Anglo-Sax Empire.
aqui tem fumaça
“For anyone who doubts what she was talking about, she concluded with a “Your Excellencies, ladies and gentlemen, geopolitics is back!”.
Since she wants to be Prime Minister, the key question is did she do this with the proper Kellyanne Conway scream? If Liz wants the job of the big puppet, she’s got to do the scream properly. Got to show that she’s got the right stuff to be the top Nazi by belting out the scream at full volume.
We Europeans are doomed.
Our leaders will raise the stakes trying to avoid a new geopolitical balance, with the risk of bringing people into a catastrophe, just like they did pre-WW2.
Just like Hitler had plenty of reasons to intervene in Poland (MSM-followers would not agree but it’s true nonetheless), Putin had plenty of reasons to intervene in Ukraine.
Just like the invasion of Poland had been the (staged) excuse for Anglo-Zionists to wage war, the invasion of Ukraine is the (staged) excuse for global conflict and NATO re-assessment.
People seem not to care. Highly dangerous situation.
The meaning behind Z on Russian Vehicles
The Zwischenzug is a chess tactic in which a player, instead of playing the expected move, 1st interposes another move posing an immediate threat that the opponent must answer.
Russian fake out of attacking Kiev. Russia moved 1st, White
The meaning behind “O” on Russian Vehicles
Another Chess tactic called Overloading the Defender. Happens in chess when a piece is given too many defensive duties at the same time by a player & cannot execute them properly.
Kiev experienced this Overload, now Donbass.
“The UK sent weapons and trained Ukrainian troops long before the war started.” Without that effort the SMO likely would not have been needed.
” We’ve got to double down on our support for Ukraine.” Otherwise we lose our Empire and the people of the world might taste freedom from our rule.
The Russians have been shocked by the levels of brain washed Ukrainians. We need to understand and oppose this new technology. Unfortunately the same devices that help us to understand the threat, deliver the threat into our lives. The tech titans need to be dismantled or as a minimum remove tax payer funding to the very agencies being used to control and/or destroy the working people of the world.
Bankrupt those bankrupting us. Cancel the creeps.
Rhetorical question. What is the big huge success that the Empire has shown us, that justifies trusting them to steer the ship of humanity? And no, stock holder equity is not my priority.
Would the internet be a better place without Gate’s monopoly? Has Fauci’s regulatory capture of World Health made anyone healthier? Are conflicts of interest now deemed essential to good management?
Yes, Lavrov’s recent comments raise further questions. Are the leaders of fascist governments Zionists and does that keep Jewish people safe? Is this just another example of oligarchs laughing all the way to the bank, while never visiting an actual place of religious worship, unless its a photo op?
It seems abundantly clear that violence causes problems. Bashar Assad commented that there were fighters/mercenaries in his Syrian prisons from over a hundred foreign countries. Now they show up in Ukraine and we expect peace to break out any day now? What is the connection between Sociopaths and Mercenaries?
We must break the mind meld Mr. Big has on a sizable portion of humanity, how do we do this? Obviously the injunction Wake the hell up is not enough!
Great article! The Saker without Andre is like a really good cup of Decaf. Not too bad, I’m sleeping better. It’s obvious his hand is still on the tiller. Thanks to all the team who make this the best place on the internet!
I believe that the Jewish people are hostage to the beast; and they are as much a slave to the dominant narrative in the “west” as we are. They are the human shield of Satan… They need a “humanitarian corridor” to be saved before the final fight…
Whipping boys. They were used by the European Royals as tax collectors, usury lenders, and other unpleasant jobs to get the blame.
Both Iran and Hezbollah are aware of this, and have warned the ordinary Israeli “Jew” to move to a more safe place. (“Jew” means “coming from Judea”).
Tunisia, Morocco, Jordan, Qatar, Egypt, United Arab Emirates, Kwait, Lebanon (Hezbollah is an exception), Algeria… is there any Arab country that is not under the Aglo-Zionist alliance? Syria and Yemen, I can only think of these two. But Sunni (white) Arabs can only think superficially Iran and shias negatively for theological and arabism reasons cause the truth is that they’re under Alglo-Zionist alliance promote by Zionist-Wahhab Lobby.
Notice while Gaddafi was speaking many were laughting including Bashar.
Gaddafi speech 2008 Arab League summit: “America hanged Saddam, and we could be next!” (with English)
Since the collapse of the Soviet Union the world has been out of balance. Therein lies the problem and the reason for all this commotion.
Despite the claims of the charlatans that they will prevent the rise of any power that can challenge them the world IS seeking balance. And no amount of screaming by the Anglo-zionists will stop our world from finding balance.
Thought that was the UN, s role?
The so called West needs a kick up the backside and the UK Govt is a bunch of clowns and the US 100 times worse.
A deep cleansing of the entire system is required.
My understanding is that senior people in the US have said that America(?) doesn’t have allies only vassals. If this is reasonably correct then what meaneth all this summoning of allies?
Does it mean anything? How long will Australia, for example, put up with Scomo’s rantings and signature? Till three weeks?
What allies? What is Austin’s purpose – does he have a purpose? Mark Milley is not well-informed if he makes statements about “if things go sour in Donbas”. Does he not know that Cossacks live in Donbas? Is he suffering delusions?
Are Chechens weaklings?
Why does not Biden surrender to Mr Putin copying the Danilov ravings re Russia?
Do the Brits not understand that ‘gunpowder explodes’? Guy Fawkes anyone?
You are going to get mashed or get real. Surrender?!?!
