"allies" and "satellites"

During the Cold War the American superpower had "allies" while the
Russian superpower had "satellites". Now that there is only one
hyperpower I wonder if it is time to start using the term "satellites"
again -- but now both for the hyperpower's former "allies" and for its
former enemies.

rigorously and ruthlessly applied to weaker, more compliant, and

prostrate "allies";
