(RoyalPatriot.com )- President Donald Trump worked fervently to maintain the important strategic and historic relationship between the United States and the United Kingdom, and despite the protests from far-left extremists in London during Trump’s trip to the U.K., that special relationship was maintained.
Enter President Joe Biden, and that relationship is less secure than ever. That’s clear with the response to Biden’s disastrous withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan that didn’t just leave thousands of Americans stranded in the country but caught the British military off guard. President Biden didn’t provide adequate notice to allies operating in Afghanistan, which has resulted in the British military initiating a number of rescue missions to rescue Brits stranded in Afghanistan.
A report by Joel Gehrke in The Washington Examiner reveals how contempt for the United States is growing in the United Kingdom, and “stoking distrust” for American foreign policy leadership.
Tom Tugendhat, a British Member of Parliament and the head of the Foreign Affairs Committee in the House of Commons, told Parliament that Biden’s disastrous withdrawal is a “harsh lesson for all of us.”
He said that it shows that the United Kingdom and European NATO partners must ensure that they are not dependent on a single ally and that they can work more closely with Japan and Australia, instead of the United States.
Great work, Joe.
Gehrke also noted how the move by Biden will support France’s decision to maintain “strategic autonomy” from the United States – and could even prompt the UK and France to work more closely together even after the hostility and disagreements over Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union.
An emergency meeting of the top diplomats in NATO has been scheduled by Jens Stoltenberg, the NATO Secretary-General, who said that it will “take some days and weeks to settle the emotions.”
Thousands of Americans abandoned in Afghanistan, millions of dollars of American military equipment gifted to the Taliban, and weakening of America’s relationships with global allies…
Is there a single part of this administration’s plans going well?
