Donald Trump's blossoming relationship with Vladimir Putin has left Britain on the brink of diplomatic crisis as officials attempt to sway the Republican's views on aiding Russia in Syria.

Britain will attempt to sway Mr. Trump's approach to Russia in the months before his inauguration.
In what could be a dramatic shift in US foreign policy, officials acknowledged conversations with Trump regarding his approach to Russia will be "very difficult".
Since winning the US election, Mr. Trump has used his first interviews to indicate that he will cut off support for rebel forces in Syria and thank the Russian president for sending him a "beautiful" letter.
But his views are highly contradictory to those of Theresa May, who last month called for Russia to be punished over its "sickening atrocities" in Aleppo, and has condemned Syrian president Bashar al-Assad for inflicting "atrocious violence" on his people.
According to The Sunday Telegraph, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson is expected to fly to the US within weeks to make clear to senior figures in Mr. Trump's administration that Britain believes President Assad must go.
Mr. Johnson has accused Russia of committing war crimes over its bombing campaign in Aleppo.
Prime Minister Theresa May's views on Russia are highly contrasted with the president-elect's.
Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson will fly to the US to make clear Britain's priorities in Syria.
Mr. Trump used his first interview with The Wall Street Journal to make clear that his administration will focus on defeating ISIS in Syria, rather than removing al-Assad.
He said: "I've had an opposite view of many people regarding Syria. My attitude was you're fighting Syria, Syria is fighting ISIS, and you have to get rid of ISIS.
"Russia is now totally aligned with Syria, and now you have Iran, which is becoming powerful, because of us, is aligned with Syria. Now we're backing rebels against Syria, and we have no idea who these people are."
Foreign officials believe it will be "very difficult" to convince the president-elect to soften his stance on foreign policy, as he already has with several flagship plans such as his aim to repeal Obamacare.
An official told The Telegraph: "We have been very clear that Assad has no place in the future of Syria. He has the blood of 400,000 people on his hands."
Another source said Mr. Trump might change his position when he discovers Russian president Vladimir Putin is "not a rational or reasonable guy".
Putin has already urged Mr. Trump to push NATO to remove its forces from Russian borders in an attempt to ease already high international tensions.
Mr. Trump has suggested the US may withdraw support from NATO because smaller members are failing to contribute financially.

"An official told The Telegraph: 'We have been very clear that Assad has no place in the future of Syria. He has the blood of 400,000 people on his hands.'"
That is the beginning of lying Western propaganda. The Syrian government is fighting US, British, French, Saudi, and other external Western powers and their terrorist proxies in Syria. The propagandists spin it as being a civil war, when it is a WORLD WAR; they suggest there are no NATO-backed terrorists shooting and shelling any civilians anywhere.
Aleppo exposed the US/Western lie that Assad bombs his own people. The Syrian Government-controlled western Aleppo is as normal as possible in a war zone, except for the shelling and mortars fired into the civilian areas from the Western terrorist forces.
The duplicity of the Western powers will not lead this world to a better place.

Well, one can well understand the crisis amongst British elites re Trump's forthcoming alliance with Putin. Putin is the symbol of an anti-usury resurgence amongst the 'white people' of the world. Britain was the first of the gang of Euro states to fully embrace state-sponsored usury in support of Willem of Orange, who of course became William III, King of England, Ireland, and Scotland from 1689 until his death. Thus, the Banksters of Antwerp inveigled their usurious way back into Britain and got their 'Bank of England' (sic) incorporated in 1694.
Since then, Britain, its people, its corporations, its land, and its foreign policy have fallen inexorably into Jewish hands. Not only that, but at the top of the tree, Jewish blood and British blood are one. Finance Capital + Peerage = a perfect union.
'According to L.G. Pine, the Editor of Burke's Peerage, Jews "have made themselves so closely connected with the British peerage that the two classes are unlikely to suffer loss which is not mutual. So closely linked are the Jews and the lords that a blow against the Jews in this country would not be possible without injuring the aristocracy also."' – Tales of the British Aristocracy (1957), p. 219
Britain is completely Jew-phucked. And has been for a very long time. The City of Londinium can be thought of as the beating heart of the Jew World Order. It is outside of British law. It is outside any law.
Time to throw off the shekels of slavery, UK.
