Kim Darroch has resigned. Now Britain risks becoming a vassal of the US | Martin Kettle | Opinion | The Guardian
This is a new world. There are no precedents. Britain’s postwar belief that it is a unique bridge between Europe and the US is more rickety now than ever. The Brexiters are set on destroying one end of the bridge. Trump is equally bent on blowing up the other. As the bridge begins to collapse, so does the transatlantic foreign policy that Darroch and others have battled so hard to sustain. As Simon McDonald put it today to the foreign affairs committee, there will be consequences. There certainly will. And none will be good ones.

Raison d’Etat: Richelieu's Grand Strategy During the Thirty Years’ War - Texas National Security Review
This article focuses on this last aspect of Richelieu’s life and legacy: his conception and practice of great power competition. The goal is not to engage in a moral examination of his actions, but rather to debate their overall effectiveness in advancing France’s foreign policy interests during the Thirty Years’ War. What philosophy of power and statecraft underpinned the cardinal’s approach to counter-hegemonic balancing? How did he view France’s role in the world and what was his vision of collective security? Finally, what insights can be derived from Richelieu’s approach to foreign policy and great power competition? Is Richelieu the embodiment of prudentia, or sagacious statecraft, as some have argued? Perhaps most importantly, are the policies and writings of a 17th-century clergyman relevant and worthy of scrutiny by contemporary security managers?

The Guardian view on Kim Darroch’s resignation: a grim portent | Editorial | Opinion | The Guardian
It also follows the ideological trajectory on which Brexit has propelled the Tory party. What was advertised as a project to “take back control” has become a project of unquestioning submission to the whim of a US president who exhibits a despotic temperament and despises the rules-based global order that has underpinned the stability of western Europe since the end of the second world war. Mr Johnson would make a grimly suitable prime minister for this agenda of constitutional vandalism and casual Europhobia. His disregard for truth was well established in the referendum campaign; his disdain for diplomacy was proved during his disastrous stint as foreign secretary. Even his supporters struggle to praise his character, admiring instead his commitment to Brexit and hoping that will revive the Tories’ electoral fortunes. The voracity of Mr Johnson’s ambition has never been a secret, nor has his willingness to sacrifice anything and anyone to satisfy that appetite. In that context, his handling of the Darroch case is unsurprising. But in one respect it represents an exceptional achievement: Mr Johnson has managed to diminish the office of prime minister before even reaching it.
