Peace Talk with Taliban are Dead
After the deadly attack in Afghanistan that killed a US soldier and Taliban accepted the responsibility of the attack, President Trump called off the Peace talks with Taliban Terrorists.
President Donald Trump told reporters, “As far as I’m concerned, they are dead.”
President Trump cancelled secret plans to host a Taliban delegation in the US after the Taliban Terrorist group admitted killing a US soldier.
Taliban said the US would “lose the most” for cancelling talks.
“It was my idea, I took my own advice. I like the idea of meeting. . . . I think meeting is a great thing,” he said. “Otherwise, wars would never end.”
President Trump said “We had a meeting scheduled. It was my idea and it was my idea to terminate it. I didn’t even discuss it with anyone else.”
“I cancelled Camp David on the basis that they did something that they sure as hell shouldn’t have done,” he said, condemning the attack that killed 12 people, including the US soldier.
As per people, “Taliban wanted a ceremony or celebration and symbolism by visiting the US as a mark of their success. However, President Trump wanted to look into their eyes to see if they are serious.”
“President did the right thing. Taliban was not ready to talk peace. Taliban was boasting as if they were successful and saying they have slayed another super power.”
Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman said, “The number of troops that we will have will always be the appropriate level that we need to provide security there. We’re going to focus on the counter terrorism mission, and we’re going to focus on the reason we got into Afghanistan in the first place, and that is to prevent terrorist operations or individuals from using Afghanistan as a base from which to operate against the homeland.”
“It would be insane to outsource our national security to the Taliban when it comes to ISIS”
Republican Senator Lindsey Grahm speaking to Fox news said “If we left tomorrow, the Taliban cannot be trusted to take care of ISIS and Al Qaeda. They don’t have the capability. So, when you ask our intelligence community…what would happen to America if we withdrew all of our forces. They tell us without any hesitation it would lead to another 9/11 in a matter of time.”
As per Retired General Robert , senior fellow with the Hudson institute, former senior director for strategic planning at the National Security Council said, “We have to recognize that Pakistan has a national interest to influence what goes on in Afghanistan. They provide safe harbor for Taliban and ISIS. They also influence through those Proxies, terror in Afghanistan. As long as Pakistan has an interest in creating havoc in Afghanistan, the prospect of enduring peace is really not there.”
On a question, why in your opinion, Pakistan has not really stepped up in all these years and after all the money that has gone to them. Retired General replied, “Pakistan has stepped up their interference in Afghanistan, because it benefit their national interest. They are very concerned about India getting foothold in Afghanistan, on of their big enemies. Afghanistan for them is an absolute priority for their national interest.”
