NO MORE WAR: British PM Theresa May vows to END 'failed' invasions like Iraq and Afghanistan

"Britain and America will no longer invade foreign countries 'to make the world in their own image'" - Theresa May. Britain and America will never again invade foreign countries “in an attempt to make the world in their own image”, Theresa May has said in the biggest shift in UK foreign policy for more than 20 years.

Addressing US Republican politicians in Philadelphia, the Prime Minister pledged not to repeat the “failed policies of the past” in a clear reference to the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan by Tony Blair and George W Bush.

And she hailed Mr Trump's election as "dawn breaking on a new era of American renewal".

She told Republicans: “I speak to you not just as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, but as a fellow Conservative who believes in the same principles that underpin the agenda of your Party.

“The value of liberty. The dignity of work. The principles of nationhood, family, economic prudence, patriotism – and putting power in the hands of the people.

“Principles instilled in me from a young age. Principles that my parents taught me in the vicarage in Southern England in which I was raised.

“I know that it is these principles that you have put at the heart of your plan for government. “

In her first significant foreign policy intervention since becoming Prime Minister, Mrs May said: "It is in our interests - those of Britain and America together - to stand strong together to defend our values, our interests and the very ideas in which we believe.

"This cannot mean a return to the failed policies of the past. The days of Britain and America intervening in sovereign countries in an attempt to remake the world in our own image are over. But nor can we afford to stand idly by when the threat is real and when it is in our own interests to intervene. We must be strong, smart and hard-headed. And we must demonstrate the resolve necessary to stand up for our interests."

NO MORE WAR: Theresa May vows to END ‘failed’ invasions like Iraq and Afghanistan. The British Prime Minister said the UK must stop trying to “remake the world in our image” in a speech ahead of her meeting with Donald Trump today.

Mrs May said the days of UK troops invading countries in a bid to make them more democratic – as we did in Iraq and Afghanistan – “are over”.

Britain “absolutely” condemns the use of torture, Prime Minister Theresa May said Thursday - and she says she’s not afraid to tell that to US President Donald Trump when she meets him in Washington.

May’s face-to-face talks at the White House on Friday will be Trump’s first with a foreign leader since his inauguration. May plans to seize the opportunity to bolster the trans-Atlantic “special relationship.” But she is under fire for seeking to get close to a president who has renewed his commitment to building a Mexican border wall, moved to pull the US out of international trade treaties and said he thinks torturing terrorism suspects works. May told reporters aboard her Royal Air Force plane that “we absolutely condemn the use of torture.” She said “my view on that won’t change, whether I’m talking to you or talking to the president.”

Trump has branded NATO “obsolete” and said the EU is “basically a vehicle for Germany” that Britain was “smart” to leave.

But May said Trump had assured her in phone conversations of his “strong commitment” to NATO. “Talking about the future of NATO is one of the issues we will discuss, as well as a whole range of other issues – our trading relationship, counterterrorism,” May said. “I will be able to hear direct from him what his views are.”

Trump has spoken enthusiastically about doing a free-trade deal with Britain, but has generally been cool on trade agreements. He is pulling the US out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership — a deal Obama worked hard on — and has promised to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico.

May, in contrast, has vowed Britain will champion free trade around the world.

I am afraid that our eyes are bigger than our stomachs, and that we have more curiosity than understanding. We grasp at everything, but catch nothing except wind.
