We are in the midst of the unfortunate Russia-Ukrain War that began on February 24, 2022. Our hearts go out to the two sides of Russia and Ukrain for this internecine war of the Slavic families. Nobody wants war and no one benefits from war except for the Military Industrial Complex and the Pharmaceutical Industrial Complex.
Threatened By NATO’s Surround
Russia is already surrounded by NATO in spite of the assurances made in a meeting between USSR President Mikhail Gorbachev and US Secretary of State James Baker on February 9, 1990. The then USSR was promised (Baker & Gorbachev, 1990) that the unification of FDR (West Germany and GDR (East Germany) would not result in NATO expanding Eastward towards the Russian border as confmed in the declassified documents of that meeting shown below:
“[James Baker] NATO is the mechanism for securing the U.S. presence in Europe. If NATO is liquidated, there will be no such mechanism in Europe. We understand that not only for the Soviet Union but for other European countries as well it is important to have guarantees that if the United States keeps its presence in Germany within the framework of NATO, not an inch of NATO’s present military jurisdiction will spread in an eastern direction [Russian border].
We believe that consultations and discussions within the framework of the “two + four” mechanism should guarantee that Germany’s unification will not lead to NATO’s military organization spreading to the east [Russian border]”. The square brackets are mine. This is a direct quote from US Secretary of State James Baker. See references at end of article to learn more about this meeting
World Order Reconfigured
We find ourselves in the new configuration of the World Order as a result of the cummulative effects of having violated Russia’s redlines namely (1) 1999 Redline; (2) 2004 Redline; (3) 2008 Redline and (4) 2014 Redline. Of all the redlines, the most provocative one is the 2008 redline which involves the joining of NATO by Ukrain. The flagrant violation of this redline poses the most impressive threat to the Russian security. This is an existential threat for Russia as confirmed by former US Ambassador to Moscow and now CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) Director William Burns. William Burns was appointed Director of the CIA by President Joe Biden in 2021.
In his book The Back Channel, the former US Ambassador to Moscow William Burns refers to the 2008 redline (Burns, 2019) as “the brightest of all redlines for the Russian elite
(not just Putin)”.
If Ukrain joined NATO and allowed NATO missiles to be stationed on Ukrain soil, it would dangerously tilt the geostrategic balance of power against Russia on grounds of missile flight time. When the nuclear missile is fired from Ukrain, Russia would not have enough time to respond effectively thus violating the principle of a mutually assured destruction. This is something realised by the Americans hence their overzealous need to extend NATO membership to Ukrain in order to threaten the Motherland of Russia more directly.
Japan suffered nuclear destructions in 1945 at Nagasaki and Hiroshima and is today an affirmative puppet of America. Even the present constitution of Japan was not written by Japanese Natives but was written by American conquerors on behalf of the Japanese people. This is like the victorious lions writing a constitution on behalf of the defeated buffalos. Such a constitution serves the interests of the conquerors and perpetuates the subjugation of the conquered.
Mother Russia does not want to find herself in that unenviable position. Russia has to put in place robust counter measures to enhance her survivability.
The Shifting Tectonic Plates
Nevertheless, this article foregrounds the reconfiguration of the World order currently in progress as pioneered by the military giants such as (Zulu, 2020) the technological superpower Russia; the economic superpower China and the rising superpower India.
The implications of these shifting tectonic plates should galvanize the African thought leaders; policy makers and politicians to reflect deeply about how Africa should conceptualise about a collective indigenous geostrategy and the moral code to navigate flawlessly in the geography of World affairs for the fulfilment of her strategic interests.
The African leaders should engage in geostrategic reflections in terms of taking a move that will enhance our survival experience for the survival benefit of the future generations of the Melanin. Without further ado, The Sunset in the West.

the writing on newfound slates,
the shift of tectonic plates.
Eastern axis like sunrise
Western axis like sunset
A death blow
To the airflow
When the sun sets in the West
a death knell for Hegemony,
a goodbye to the Colony.
Strong Russia despite pressures
Unbowed to Suzerain seizures
India’s multipolar thesis
Rising China with a new axis
To hasten the nightfall of American axis
A new sunrise is increasingly being born on a Eurasian horizon which spells a sunset for a Western sunshine under the axial dictates of the American fiat dominance. The gestation of the Eastern axis has been too long like that of the elephant but the robust baby is alive and well and ready to defeat the Suzerain perturbations of the terrestrial space. This baby sunrise creates a new paradigm shift towards the Eastern axis unlike anything seen before in the forensic pages of history. The inexorable march to the new sunrise is ushering a multipolar World and there is no going back to the Suzerain unipolarity at the behest of the American fiat.
Vasco da Gama’s marginalisation of indigenous sovereign independence since the Christmas Day of 1497 has hitherto been legendary and highly celebrated by former colonisers and slave masters of Europe as well as the Suzerain dominance of America that destroys audacious resisters like the unsold and unbought Muammar Qaddafi of Lybia whose beloved African homeland was subjected to an incredible destruction under the belligerence of America and NATO in 2011 and the African Union was not able to do anything about it.
Untold manifestations of suffering created by the ECC (Euro-Christian Colonialism) in many forms namely (1) land dispossession; (2) genocides; (3) extraction of natural resources; (4) marginalisation and (5) miseducation about reality has undervalued and pushed to the periphery, using the economic disenfranchisement, the indigenous peoples of the land like (Zulu, 2014) a desert flower forced to the underground on account of water deprivation.
Notwithstanding, the desert flower preserves the sacrosanct desert seed for future generations. As a basis of analogic reasoning, the desert seed is the cultural knowledge and the kernel of the seed is the Mother tongue. You need the Mother tongue to take your stand in the World as the unbought and unsold architect of destiny as it was meant to be by the erudite African ancestors who have gone before us.
The underground is a cruel place infested with destructive bacteria. The bacteria is the moral decay that ensues from and thrives on account of a legendary failure by the Natives of the land to defend and to honour the sacrosanct tombs of the African ancients as a result of the dearth of the physico-intellectual prowess to emancipate the Motherland from the ironclad clutches of the colonial descendants in the beautiful land of Azania (South Africa). The beautiful Motherland of Azania is forcefully raped in front of her children by the Euro-Christian Colonial descendants and unable to defend herself.
Moreover, the Suzerain America extracts fealty from the vassal states around the World (Azania is also a vassal state) as confirmed by then Prime Minister Vladimir Putin (Putin, 2011) who said that America is not looking for allies, it is looking for vassals. As the unbought and unsold architect of destiny, Putin audaciously charged that America sought to dominate other countries and the people were tired of taking orders from Washington. In other words, the World has reached a point of saturation over the Suzerain dictates of the unilateralist America being torced down the throat of the World.
This bravado Suzerain juggernaut was stopped in its tracks by the checkmate of Mother Russia under the leadership of the great protagonist of sovereign independence, the indefatigable President Vladimir Putin in 2015 in defence of the Syrian Arab Republic of President Bashar Al-Asad in accordance with the Syrian people’s national anthem “Guardians of the Homeland”.
The Russian multipolar foreign policy; the uncontested rise of China; the multipolar stances of India; Middle-East; Latin America and Africa signal the geostrategic shift as in the shifting of tectonic plates.
Implications for Mother Africa
We are currently hitched to the former colonizers and slave masters of Europe and America through our vassal state leaders (including my homeland of Azania) as confirmed by the use of Covid vaccines formulated in Europe and America as shown (Ramaphosa, 2020) in the speech President Cyril Ramaphosa: South Africa’s progress in national effort to contain Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic:
“We can confirm that we have signed off on the agreement with COVAX and the Solidarity Fund has made the initial payment of R283 million to the facility.”
Azania gave R283 million to the former colonisers and slave masters to create for us a vaccine to the detriment of indigenous medicines like Lengana (Umhlonyana; Wormwood). This is like the buffalo giving all its meagre resources to the lion for the lion to create a vaccine to strengthen its immune defence. What kind of vaccine will that be?
Moreover, it is not in the interest of the predatory lion to strengthen the immune defence of the buffalo. A strong buffalo spells hunger for the lion society. The lion must find a way to compromise the natural defence of the buffalo. This includes undermining the hooves; the horns; the reproductive system; the brain; the prowess and the stampede of the buffalos by changing the chromosomes of the buffalo through the mRNA vaccine. No lion survives the buffalo stampede hence the lion’s fear of the buffalo stampede and the existential need to subdue the buffalo using the duplicity as a strategy of conquest and perpetual subjugation.
Thus, the lion vaccine will use RNAi (RNA Interference) to selectively degrade the immune defence; the reproductive power and the physico-intellectual prowess of the buffalo so that after a treacherous jab and when the lion coughs, the buffalo drops dead and there will be lots of food in the royal palaces of the lion society. As far as the lion is concerned, the buffalo is expendable. As far as the Euro-Christian Colonial descendants are concerned, the African Native is expendable.
We do not have a metaphysical experience of sovereign independence. The type of independence we have is a Suzerain independence wherein the former colonizers and slave masters subject us to an assortment of axial dictates at the behest of our leaders who have sold us out.
Things are changing around you. The axial sphere of ECC influence has reached its useful date. Are you going to unhitch your wagon from the ECC or will you continue to be hitched to the ECC system that is not intended to enhance your survivability in the terrestrial space? The ECC system is designed to reduce your survivability.
La Lucha En Espanol
Sin embargo, la lucha debe continuar! No rendirse! Nunca jamas porque el destino es nuestro! Nosotros debemos derrotar las cadenas vestigiales de la esclavitud y CEC (colonialismo eurocristiano)! La melanina debe sobrevivir en la jungla, para ser el arquitecto del destino no comprado y no vendido como estaba destinado a ser por los antepasados africanos.
The Struggle in English
Notwithstanding, the struggle must continue! No surrender! Never never because the destiny is ours! We must defeat the vestigial chains of slavery and ECC (Euro-Christian Colonialism)! The Melanin must survive in the jungle, as the unbought and unsold architect of destiny as it was meant to be by the African ancestors who have gone before us.
Haba bokwe Baholo! Thokoza Makhosi! High Veneration to the Ancestors!
