Opposition politician and former Pakistani Ambassador to the U.S. Sherry Rehman said the BRICS statement was unsurprising. The Taliban said that was retaliation for the poster.
The US has been at war in Afghanistan for nearly 16 years, and President Donald Trump recently announced he would be deploying more American forces - about 4,000 by most estimates - to the war-torn country.
Instead, Trump projected an "I got this" bravado that has become a hallmark of his presidency. In Pakistan, the USA war in Afghanistan spilled over into that country and thus created the Pakistani Taliban.
With President Trump depoliticising the military campaign and showing seriousness to the cause, both the Pakistan Army and the Afghanistan National Army may have an interest to engage in a meaningful way with the USA forces on ground in the region. Ensuing outrage over the incident led to massive protests nationwide and the deaths of dozens, including four USA military personnel, according to Reuters.
The elected government also has no control over the support being provided to terror groups operating against Afghanistan and India, as they remain the sole prerogative of the deep state.
Civilian fatalities, however, are common in strikes since insurgent groups such as the Taliban typically use villages as shelters.
While US and coalition casualties have fallen in recent years since the Afghan government assumed responsibility for combat operations in 2014, there have still been incidents that resulted in US fatalities or injuries.
Pakistan has been pursuing its own mini-war, or a series of battles through different actors to secure what is projected as their own legitimate interests in Afghanistan.
Trump offered up numerous same solutions tried by his predecessors. Pakistan's security concerns are linked with Afghanistan. Trump said "nation-building" would no longer be a priority and that Washington would focus on "killing terrorists". President Barack Obama promised all the same things. "They didn't come here to fight us, they invaded our country to force the Afghan people to stop practicing Islam", the Taliban member noted. The general expectation in Pakistan for all their sacrifices is - that the Afghans would be grateful and friendly to them.

Now Trump leads Washington and that question falls for him to answer. The nation should rise against the US [presence]. It includes, postponement of diplomatic visits between the two countries, suspending cooperation with the USA and contact friendly countries (obviously China and Saudi Arabia) in the region.
"My original instinct was to pull out", Trump said.
Regardless of the turn that the relationship with Washington takes it is essential to cool-headedly examine the complaints the U.S. has been making.
The president said the nation needs to seek "an honorable and enduring outcome worthy of the tremendous sacrifices" made by USA soldiers - a line that harkened back to promises made by Richard Nixon during the 1968 campaign to bring "an honorable end" to the war in Vietnam.
AT the time of its military invasion of Afghanistan in October-2001 through Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), the stated USA objectives were to defeat the Taliban Government, eliminate Al-Qaeda, kill or arrest Osama Bin Laden (the Mastermind of 9/11) and establish a democratic government in Afghanistan. There is enormous fear within their security establishment that their soft underbelly of Baluchistan, presently being brutally crushed, would be accessible to Indian influence, once it establishes a foothold in Afghanistan. In Somalia, U.S. support for an Ethiopian invasion of Somalia created the virulently Islamist al Shabab group.
In a brief statement, the ministry pointed to the presence of terrorist groups in "the ungoverned spaces of Afghanistan", including the Pakistani Taliban and its associates like Jamaatul Ahrar, Islamic State and anti-China militants.
To those US service members, Trump promised nothing short of success. How would another 3000-5000 additional U.S. troop would make a victory for USA possible?
