Anti-Trump British Ambassador Who Caused Diplomatic Spat with U.S. Resigns in Disgrace

British ambassador Kim Darroch resigned from his post today.

British ambassador to the United States Kim Darroch recently caused an international incident, drawing the wrath of President Donald Trump, after cables were leaked of Darroch calling the Trump administration “dysfunctional” and “inept.”

“We don’t really believe this administration is going to become substantially more normal; less dysfunctional; less unpredictable; less faction riven; less diplomatically clumsy and inept,” Darroch said in a leaked memo from 2017.

As a result of his diplomatic blunder, Darroch was forced to resign in disgrace earlier today.

“Since the leak of official documents from this embassy there has been a great deal of speculation surrounding my position and the duration of my remaining term as ambassador,” Darroch wrote to Simon McDonald, head of the Foreign Office.

“I want to put an end to that speculation. The current situation is making it impossible for me to carry out my role as I would like,” he added.

“I have told him it is a matter of great regret that he has felt it necessary to leave his position as ambassador to Washington,” said Prime Minister Theresa May, who stood by Darroch throughout the scandal.

“The whole Cabinet rightly gave its full support to Sir Kim,” who “has given a lifetime of service to the UK and we owe him an enormous debt of gratitude,” she added.

Trump released tweets on Monday, not only disavowing the former ambassador but also trashing May who will soon be leaving office.

He doubled down with even more condemnation toward the globalists in charge of Britain, who are hemorrhaging public support after mishandling the Brexit deal, on Tuesday.

“I am grateful to all those in the UK and the US, who have offered their support during this difficult few days. This has brought home to me the depth of friendship and close ties between our two countries. I have been deeply touched,” Darroch wrote in his resignation letter.

“I am also grateful to all those with whom I have worked over the last four decades, particularly my team here in the US. The professionalism and integrity of the British civil service is the envy of the world. I will leave it full of confidence that its values remain in safe hands,” he added.

Despite Darroch’s lip service, he is leaving his post in disgrace after straining relations between Britain and the U.S. with his anti-Trump agitating. His replacement under a new Tory leader, such as the pro-Trump Boris Johnson, would be wise to be more diplomatic than his predecessor.

Hostilities Explode As Armenia, Azerbaijan Fight Over Disputed Nagorno-Karabakh Region

Dozens have been killed.

Published

Intense combat broke out between the military forces of Armenia and Azerbaijan over the weekend, with the two west Asian countries intensifying a conflict over the disputed territory known of Nagorno-Karabakh.

Reports indicate that more than thirty fighters between the two sides were killed over the weekend.

Nagorno-Karabakh’s (also known as Artsakh) pro-Armenian local government claimed that the Armenians had destroyed 20 UAV’s, 3 helicopters, and thirty tanks or fighting vehicles of the Azerbaijani armed forces.

The Armenian ministry of defense has confirmed that more than 200 of its personnel fighting in the conflict have been wounded. It’s possible casualties could explode over the week if Azerbaijan continues its attempt to conquer towns and villages administered by the Artsakh government.

The small territory is inhabited by a majority Armenian population, who wholly support the region’s integration into Armenia. Ethnic warfare over the area first erupted in 1988 as the two nations separated from the collapsing Soviet Union, and has flared up intermittently since then.

The region is largely internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan, and Azeri attempts to assert sovereignty over the mountainous region have been met with fierce resistance from the local population before. The fighting exploded over the weekend when Azerbaijan attempted to move its military personnel into the area, and it appears that the latest round of fighting has been the most vicious so far.

The warfare escalated when Armenia accused Azerbaijan of deploying artillery and airstrikes against pro-Armenian fighters in the region, with Azerbaijan claiming it only used the weapons in response to Armenian attacks of the same variety.

Armenia is Christian, and Azerbaijan is Muslim. The former has conditional backing from the Russian Federation, while Azerbaijan is staunchly supported by neighboring Turkey. Many Armenians are staunch in their defense of the region as an Armenian territory, citing the legacy of the Ottoman Empire’s genocide of the Armenian population of Anatolia following World War I.
