Ecco, questo accordo anglo-russo è l’architrave della trattativa che si è svolta segretamente, ed è anche la prospettiva più seria per l’ulteriore sviluppo del conflitto. La Russia ha un potenziale umano immenso, ed è questo che i tedeschi temono, un’ondata umana irrefrenabile sul confine orientale, e l’Inghilterra ha la più potente flotta da guerra del mondo, quantunque la Germania abbia fatto di tutto per emularla: dunque questi due fattori, collegati, prospettano una situazione di sperequazione tra i due schieramenti, a favore appunto dell’Intesa e dell’alleanza anglo-russa in particolare.
Quando si presenta dinanzi al ministro serbo, il ministro delle finanze in quel momento si trovava al posto del primo ministro Pasic, si sente rispondere: «ma è impossibile radunare immediatamente il Consiglio dei ministri al completo perché una parte dei ministri si trova in questo momento in viaggio», e l’ambasciatore austriaco risponde sarcastico: «nell’età delle ferrovie, del telegrafo e del telefono, e data la piccola estensione del regno di Serbia, la cosa non dovrebbe essere difficile». Senza aspettare risposta, si allontana e lascia la sede del governo serbo.
Questo piano, come si è detto prima, prevede un Blitz – come fu detto poi in epoca hitleriana, «la guerra lampo» – in cui la Francia cadeva in sei settimane, la mobilitazione russa sarebbe stata lenta, e la guerra sarebbe stata vinta. Ma alla base di tutto questo, di questo castello – forse di carta – c’era l’idea che l’Inghilterra restasse fuori dal conflitto. Guglielmo concepisce siffatte speranze (la neutralità inglese, la vittoria rapida), però è prudente nel fare dichiarazioni pubbliche. 38 La sua prima voce ufficiale è quella che egli fa udire a proposito dell’ultimatum austriaco; ed è una voce spesso dimenticata ma sintomatica.
