Alice Wells, the acting assistant secretary of state for South and Central Asian affairs and acting Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, was set to be the first major USA official to visit Pakistan since Trump's comments.
The 16 years since the Bush administration intervened in October 2001 following the 9/11 attacks on NY and Washington makes this the US's longest war. The Taliban now controls approximately 40 percent of the entire country of Afghanistan and one-third of the population. Some may be in the Afghan security forces. But he too then encountered a resurgent Taliban. Obama also promised to end the war in Afghanistan during the 2012 campaign, but instead raised troop levels there - while simultaneously ratcheting up the drone program.
Let's call those directional shifts the four Nos.
Iqbal also mentioned that Taliban were using Afghanistan as the launch pad for their operations, both inside and outside Pakistan.
The 4000 additional troops are likely to be there to train and "battlefield mentor" the Afghanistan Army; not just working with Afghanistan units in barracks but also accompanying each unit into battle at a rate of about 30 U.S. troops per 500-strong Afghanistan battalion. Peace in Afghanistan is important for Pakistan, which was why Islamabad is helping Washington in trying to find a solution to the Afghan issue, he added.

Ayaz Sadiq, speaker and custodian of the house, has asked all parliamentarians to make sure their attendance in the session, saying "We shall not allow U.S.to threaten Pakistan and favor India".
But Trump was not buying the yarn Islamabad had used successfully on former US presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.
This has been a recurring problem in the Afghan War, as the Taliban really are awash in U.S. arms, both a product of sales from corrupt Afghan soldiers, and of Taliban looting of Afghan police checkpoints and making off with entire armories.
"We can no longer be silent about Pakistan's safe havens for terrorist organizations, the Taliban, and other groups that pose a threat to the region and beyond". He called the Haqqani network, one of the most risky terrorist groups in Afghanistan, "a veritable arm of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence agency". He demands that Pakistan does more to fight this war and less to harbour Taliban leaders.
McMaster is known to have sought a tougher line on Pakistan.
The prime minister and the high commissioner discussed the regional situation, Afghanistan, enhancing bilateral trade and the significant role of Pakistani community in the UK.
"I'm a problem-solver", Trump boasted.
But foreign policy is not immune to domestic politics. But the troubled State Department has been denuded of expertise on South Asia, and the president's words made clear his skepticism about diplomatic efforts.
Afghanistan will never be another South Korea, and there is a good reason that this rugged patch of Central Asia is known as the Graveyard of Empires. Afghanistan's history shows that "victory" within its borders is a dubious hope.
Afghanistan is Trump's war now, and it will require the kind of long-range thinking he hasn't demonstrated up until now.
