Trump vows to hit Taliban hard as US marks Sept. 11

The attack came as US President Donald Trump pledged to hit the Taliban "harder than they have ever been hit before". President Trump probably felt the pressure and announced the suspension of the peace process.

"They're dead. They're dead", Mr. Trump wrote.

President Donald Trump used 9/11 remembrance commemorations Wednesday to announce an unprecedented escalation of the United States military assault on Afghanistan's Taliban - just days after he wanted to hold peace talks with the insurgents.

Given how quickly Trump had resumed talks with North Korea after similarly declaring the negotiation process dead, hope is not lost for the resumption of dialogue to get the 14,000 U.S. security personnel risking their lives in the trouble-torn territory of Afghanistan back home. The Afghan government was more of an onlooker as the Taliban doesn't recognise the Ashraf Ghani-led dispensation, whom it considers a USA puppet regime. But if they attack us, they continue their bombardment, their night raids, [then] that will continue from our side what has been continuing for the last 18 years.

For almost a year, USA envoy Zalmay Khalilzad has been negotiating with the Taliban on issues including a US troop withdrawal and Taliban guarantees to keep Afghanistan from again becoming a launch pad for global terror attacks.

In his remarks on September 11, Trump reiterated that he had called off the peace negotiations with the Taliban last week because of a auto bombing carried out by the militant group in Kabul that killed a US soldier and 11 other people.

He said any process should have full consent of the Afghan government and its people.

India's Permanent Representative to the United Nations Syed Akbaruddin said on Tuesday that the country preferred direct talks between the Afghanistan government and the Taliban terrorist group, PTI reported. The Taliban has targeted elections in the past, and they've threatened to go on the attack again, warning voters to stay away from the polls or face the consequences. But this is another aspect of the Afghan issue. "This memorial where we gather for today's ceremony stands as an enduring testament to remember them, to honor them, to recall their sacrifice". I said that's the end of them, get them out, and we're hitting them very hard. "We had accepted the invitation but had delayed the visit until signing of the agreement", he revealed.

Braun says the US should be reducing its overseas involvement more broadly, while still remaining vigilant to protect the country from attack.

"It is then up to us, because there is no agreement".

The US troops serve in the country alongside worldwide troops to advise and assist Afghan defence forces and to fight terrorist groups like the Islamic State and al Qaeda. India's internal interests are also deeply interlinked with the situation in Afghanistan, with Pakistan's deep involvement in the so-called peace process.
