Taliban claims revenge for "highly offensive" US military leaflet

Taliban claims revenge for

Local officials in Jalalabad, provincial capital of eastern Nangarhar province, admit "some civilians" sustained harm in an attack, but the USFOR-A claim only Daesh militants were targeted in this air raid in the Haska Maina district on August 10.

United States engagement policy in Afghanistan, as pronounced by President Trump will rapidly convert Afghanistan as a hub of another major power playing ground. Such a policy not only "securitised" the development process but also "developmentalised" the security.

Afghan security forces have beefed up security operations against militants, as Afghans have been witnessing a surge in attacks by Taliban and Islamic State (IS) militants across the country.

At the end of his presidency, Mr. Obama began withdrawing troops on a fixed timetable, then stopped the pullout at 8,400 troops because the Afghans wanted the Americans around to train their own forces during a Taliban resurgence.

Recently, the U.S. military officially acknowledged that there are some 2,600 more troops in Afghanistan than the 8,400 previously reported.

Defense Minister Khurram Dastagir Khan rejected the statement within hours of its publication.

Washington, Sep 7 (IANS): While encouraging members of the BRICS alliance to continue playing a constructive role in global stabilisation, the USA reminded Pakistan that it "must change its approach" to terrorism. Relations deteriorated when Osama bin Laden was located in Pakistan and taken out in 2011. He took a tough tone on Pakistan, which has long played a double game, taking billions of dollars in aid from Washington while giving safe haven to the Taliban and other militants; the president hinted that some aid could be withheld. Russian Federation responded similarly to Mr. Trump.

Third and most important reason for Pakistan to be angry is India factor.

Brics - a forum of the fast-growing developing economies of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa - has expressed its "concern on the security situation in the region and the violence caused by the Taliban, ISIL/DAISH, Al-Qaeda and its affiliates including [the] Eastern Turkistan Islamic Movement, Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, the Haqqani network, Lashkar-e-Tayyaba, Jaish-e-Mohammed, TTP and Hizbul-Tahrir". For him, the Taliban and other groups that pose a threat to the region and beyond.

What is Labor Day?
But the need to recognize our labor force has not diminished, even as the average American worker has changed. As such, it affords a three-day weekend to pursue summertime passions one last time before the weather cools.

U.S. first sought to incentivise Pakistan through the Kerry-Lugar-Berman bill of $1.5 billion annual aid commitment. Much earlier, the UN Security Council had designated JeM and LeT as terrorist organisations in 2001 and 2005, respectively.

Of course, the USA government should have introspectively reached the conclusion that U.S. interventionism in the Middle East had helped create the problem, or at least exacerbated it and had directed it more against the United Sates. He has since disassociated himself from the group and denied any link between JuD and LeT. Unofficial reports place the civilian cost of the raid at 20 lives or more.

Unable to break the deadlock of the Afghan conflict militarily, in 2012, the United States reached out to Pakistan to peruse political reconciliation with the Taliban.

Throughout the 16-year Afghan war, USA forces have struggled to convince ordinary Afghans to help them defeat the Taliban. Non-Muslim forces fighting on Muslim land angers even moderate Muslims.

Mr. Azhar, a portly bespectacled son of a Bahawalpur religious studies teacher and author of a four-volume treatise on jihad as well as books with titles like Forty Diseases of the Jews, was briefly detained after the attack and has since gone underground.

"You can not have good and bad terrorists, and it is a collective action".

"An explosion occurred outside an entry control point at Bagram Airfield at 5:38 p.m. local time today", the military said in a statement. Pakistan is certainly not pleased by the highly negative reference. Pakistani authorities already have outlawed the organizations.

The official cited recent statements in support of Pakistan's counter-terrorism efforts by the Chinese and Russians as evidence that Islamabad was winning support elsewhere. It's good to know Trump has come to that realization.

Had there been no 9/11, it is doubtful that American soldiers would have ever invaded Afghanistan.
