Réseau Voltaire-Russia prepares the curtain call

This technology transfer would have taken place before the announcement of the Australia/UK/USA Alliance (AUKUS). It undermines Washington’s efforts to confront Beijing and Pyongyang. The West has not only suffered a terrible defeat in Syria that forces them to accept a new world order, their “missile shield” is powerless, their armies are now totally out of date.

Russia is making great strides in implementing the Geneva agreements of last June. It is bringing Syria back into the concert of nations, preparing to expel Turkey, reconciling Israel and Iran, gaining a foothold in Africa and distributing absolute weapons in Asia. The United States is no longer the master of the world. Those who do not follow the current upheavals will be the losers of the new era in preparation.

This article is a follow-up to
 “Why a Yalta II?“, 15 June 2021.
 “Biden-Putin, a Yalta II rather than a new Berlin“, 22 June 2021.
 “The political architecture of the new Middle East“, 7 September 2021.
 “Towards peace in Syria and Lebanon“, 28 September 2021.

The implementation of the conclusions of the US-Russia summit in Geneva (known as “Yalta II”), held on June 16, 2021, continues. It seems that the concessions made by Washington to Moscow are much more significant than previously thought. President Vladimir Putin continues to put the world back in order not only in the wider Middle East, but also in Africa and Asia. Substantial changes are already observable in four months. In the Russian tradition, nothing is announced, but everything will be revealed en bloc when things have become irreversible.

The Anglo-Saxons have accepted their defeat

In early September 2021, the US hinted that it was allowing Hezbollah to violate US embargo laws on Syria and Iran and to procure Iranian fuel oil via Syria. Then Jordan reopened its border with Syria. Finally, the Anglo-Saxon press began a series of articles aimed at clearing President Bashar al-Assad of the crimes he was accused of and rehabilitating him. It all started with an article in The Observer, the Sunday edition of The Guardian, headlined “Pariah Assad sold to West as key to Middle East peace” [1].

One thing led to another and Newsweek featured the Syrian president on its cover with the headline: “He’s back”, followed by the subheading: “In a triumph over the United States, Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad claims a place on the world stage” [2]. The computer version of the weekly even goes further with the caption of a photograph talking about the “presumed” chemical attack in Ghoutta, where the US and French presidents, Barack Obama and François Hollande, had accused the “criminal regime” by name of having crossed “the red line”. So goodbye to the ten-year rhetoric of “Bashar must go”.

The military defeat that President Joe Biden admitted in Geneva in June is now being assimilated by the Anglo-Saxon press. The rest of the West can only follow suit.

Syria’s re-establishment on the international stage is underway: Interpol has taken corrective action to end its sidelining, King Abdullah II of Jordan and Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed of the United Arab Emirates have indicated that they have spoken with President Assad. The UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi, has quietly gone to Damascus to discuss, at last, the return of expatriates. The West had been opposed to this for a decade and paid the countries hosting them handsomely not to let them return home.

Returning from Africa, President Erdoğan and his team, speaking to the press on board their plane, threatened to send back the ambassadors of ten countries including the United States, France and Germany.

Turkey a victim of its double standards

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has presented his parliament with the renewal of his army’s mission to fight Kurdish PKK terrorists in Iraq and Syria; two countries he illegally occupies.
