After seven months, finally, the U.S new strategy about Afghanistan war and the region was announced, Trump dislike his early saying, disagreed the American troops withdraw and to enter a serious counter terrorism warned Pakistan.

Speaking before hundreds of troops at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall in Arlington, told the nation that “The vacuum we created by leaving too soon gave safe haven for ISIS to spread, to grow, recruit and launch attacks.”

In his speech Trump was swayed by an argument he made during the campaign, namely that President Barack Obama’s precipitous withdrawal from Iraq led to the rise of the Islamic State, a mistake Trump said he did not want to repeat in Afghanistan. “Our soldiers watched as cities they had fought for and bled to liberate, and won, were occupied by a terrorist group called ISIS,”

Trump added: “We will not talk about numbers of troops or our plans for further military activities. Conditions on the ground, not arbitrary timetables, will guide our strategy from now on.”

The message is aimed at the Taliban, who will no longer be able to dig in and wait for the U.S. to leave. The idea is to give them little choice but to negotiate a political settlement.

Trump warned the government in Kabul that America’s patience is not unlimited, and that in return for continued U.S. support, the American people expect to see “real reforms, real progress, and real results.” “Our support is not a blank check,” Trump said. “The government of Afghanistan must carry their share of the military, political and economic burden.”

“From now on, victory will have a clear definition.” Trump said. “Attacking our enemies, obliterating ISIS, crushing al Qaeda, preventing the Taliban from taking over Afghanistan, and stopping mass terror attacks against America before they emerge.” President Trump said America will no longer use American military might to construct democracies in faraway lands or try to rebuild other countries in our own image. Those days are now over.

Trump said, “We are a partner and a friend, but we will not dictate to the Afghan people how to live or how to govern their own complex society.” It will be up to the Afghans to figure out how to govern the fractious nation and find a path to peace. “We are not nation-building again. We are killing terrorists.”

Trump said the U.S. will no longer tolerate safe havens across the border in Pakistan for “organizations that try every single day to kill” Americans.

“We have been paying Pakistan billions and billions of dollars at the same time they are housing the very terrorists that we are fighting,” Trump said. “But that will have to change. And that will change immediately.”

Trump called for more key role of India in fields of establishing security and boosting bilateral economic cooperation between Afghanistan and India.

It is worth saying that 16-years presence of America in Afghanistan to which Trump opposed has left 2400 U.S soldiers killed and charged this country 700 billion dollars.
