Trump meets with security officials on Afghanistan peace efforts


ASHLEY: PRESIDENT TRUMP MEETING WITH HIS TOP OFFICIALS IN BEDMINSTER, NEW JERSEY ABOUT THE TALIBAN NEGOTIATIONS. LET’S BRING IN BOB SCALES. BUT I WANT TO BEGIN WITH AFGHANISTAN FIRST. IT’S A QUAGMIRE. I WAS LOOKING AT YOUR NOTES. REMEMBER BRITAIN WAS IN AFGHANISTAN FOR 10 YEARS. WE HAVE BEEN THERE FOR 18 YEARS. IT’S A DIFFICULT ISSUE TO MAKE A DEAL WITH THE TALIBAN THAT YOU BELIEVE THEY ARE ACTING IN GOOD FAITH ON. I WONDER WHAT THE OBJECTIVE IS.>>THE OBJECTIVE IS TO KEEP ISIS AND AL QAEDA FROM GOING BACK TO THEIR TRAINING CAMPS. YOU RECALL OSAMA BIN LADEN USED AFGHANISTAN AS A TRAINING CAM PRIOR TO 9/11. I HAVE BEEN TO AFGHANISTAN SEVERAL TIMES. IT’S A FAILED STATE. THEY HAVE BEEN CORRUPT FOR 2,300 YEARS. THERE IS NOT A LOT THE UNITED STATES HAS BEEN ABLE TO ACHIEVE TO OVERCOME THAT. THE UNITED STATES HAS A PRETTY SKETCHY RECORD WHEN IT COMES TO PULLING OUT OF WARS. VIETNAM COMES TO MIND. IRAQ IN 2011 WAS A LOW POINT IN OUR MILITARY COMMITMENTS IN THE MIDDLE EAST. I GUESS THE CHRIS THE PRESIDENT IS GETTING FROM HIS MILITARY IS STEADY ON, THIS IS AN ECONOMY OF FORCED THEATER. WE ARE NOT IN THIS FOR THE SAKE OF THE AFGHANS. WE ARE TONIGHT FOR OUR OWN NATIONAL SECURITY OBJECTIVES. DON’T THROW THE BABY OUT WITH THE BATH WATER AND DON’T TRUST THE GALLON TALIBAN AS YOU SUGGEST. ASHLEY: I BELIEVE THERE WAS A SUGGESTION 5,000 TROOPS ARE COMING BACK, LEAVING A FORCE BETWEEN 9,000 AND 10,000 TROOPS. DO WE HAVE TO FACE THE FACT THAT IN ORDER TO CARRY OUT THE OBJECTIVES YOU NEED, WE’LL NEED A SIGNIFICANT FORCE FOR A TIME TO COME. 1,000 TROOPS OUT OF 14 MILLION IS A DROP IN THE BUCKET. THE MISSION IS TO KEEP THE RIGHT TROOPS THERE. THE MISSION IS COUNTER-TERRORISM, ELITE FORCES SUPPORT BY AIR POWER AND HELICOPTERS TO CHASE DOWN AND TAKE OUT TERRORIST GROUPS BEFORE THEY HAVE A CHANCE TO REESTABLISH A PRESENCE TO IN AFGHANISTAN AND I THINK THAT’S A NOBLE OBJECTIVE. ASHLEY: NORTH KOREA LAWING OF TWO MORE MISSILES, REJECTING TALKS WITH SOUTH KOREA. THEY HAVE HAD SIX MISSILE TESTS IN RECENT WEEKS. IS THIS NORTH KOREA SAYING REMEMBER US? IT’S ONE THING TO GET BACK WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP TO GET BACK TO PROPER NEGOTIATIONS.>>WELL, YES AND YES. THIS WAS NOT THE USUAL TANTRUM MISSILE KIM HAS FLOWN IN THE PAST. THIS ONE IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT. THIS WAS A TRUE MISSILE TEST. MY SOURCES TELL ME THAT IT’S VERY MOBILE, A SOLID FUEL MISSILE. IT’S A KNOCKOFF OF THE RUSSIAN MISSILE THAT’S DESIGNED TO SPOOF AMERICA AND NATO ANTI-AIRCRAFT MISSILE SYSTEMS. TO FLY ABOVE PATRIOT AND BELOW THAAD. THIS TECHNOLOGY ALONG WITH THEIR ATTEMPT TO BUILD A SUBMARINE LAUNCH IS PRETTY FRIGHTENING. ASH REQUIRE’ FRIGHTENING. BUT CAN WE GET SOME SORT OF DEAL WITH KIM JONG-UN? IT’S LIKE TRYING TO GET A DEAL WITH THE TALIBAN. IT’S DIFFICULT TO NAIL THEM DOWN AND HAVE THEM DO WHAT THEY SAY THEY ARE GOING TO DO.>>THIS IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT. I SPENT 40 YEARS SERVING IN KOREA. THIS IS DIFFERENT. WE ARE AT A PLACE RIGHT NOW FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 70 YEARS, THE UNITED STATES HOLDS ALL THE CARD IN ITS DEALING WITH NORTH KOREA. NORTH KOREAN CONVENTIONAL FORCES ARE BANKRUPT. STATE CONTROLLED FOOD SUPPLY HAS FALLEN APART. THEY HAVE THE GROSS NATIONAL PRODUCT OF IS STONE PRODUCT -F IS STONE PRODUCT — IS STONE PRODUCT — OS STONE PRODUCT — OF STONE PRODUCT — OF ATONE PRODUCT — OF ASTNE PRODUCT — OF ASTONE PRODUCT — OF DSTONE PRODUCT — OF DESONE PRODUCT — OF DESTOE PRODUCT — OF DESTONIS. IN THIS CASE TIME IS ON OUR SIDE. ASHLEY: ISN’T CHINA PULLING ALL THE STRINGS ON NORTH KOREA? MAYBE NORTH KOREA PLAYING UP IS A DISTRACTION FOR THE U.S. AND HONG KONG IS A DISTRACTION FOR BEIJING.>>TIMES HAVE CHANGED IN THE LAST DECADE OR SO. THE CHINESE USED TO THINK THEY HELD THE UPPER HAND IN MEETINGS WITH NORTH KOREA. THEY NOT THEY COULD CONTROL NORTH KOREA AS A HEDGE AGAINST THE UNITED STATES. BUT IN THE LAST TWO OR THREE YEARS, OUR BOY KIM POKED A FINGER IN OUR EYES AND CHINA’S EYES. THAT LOVING RELATIONSHIP DESCRIBED AS CLOSE AS TEETH ARE TO GUMS, THAT RELATIONSHIP IS BEGINNING TO WANE AND CHINA’S RELATIONSHIP WITH NORTH KOREA IS ENTIRELY DIFFERENT THAN IT WAS

    Time to have Afghanistan take care of their problems on their own while we bring American Patriots back home to their families. This was never their war

  • we dont have any business being in Afghanistan,we are no farther ahead now that we were when we invaded except for the billions of dollars in heroin that were brought into the US THAT HAS DESTROYED MILLIONS OF OUR PEOPLE.!!!!………

  • TRUMP 2020 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 AMERICAN🇺🇸🗽🇺🇸🗽🇺🇸🗽 FIRST.. PULL OUT USA GET OUTSIDE THERE..

  • A TRUE LEADER HAS THE CONFIDENCE TO STAND ALONE
    AND THE COURAGE TO MAKE TOUGH DECISIONS
    AND THE COMPASSION TO LISTEN TO THE NEEDS OF OTHERS
    HE DOES NOT SET OUT TO BE A LEADER
    BUT BECOMES ONE BY THE EQUALITY OF HIS ACTIONS
    AND THE INTEGRITY OF HIS INTENT.
    THAT S IS AMERICA'S CHOSEN PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP !

  • Americans wouldn’t know what to do if they weren’t in a conflict. They haven’t gone more than 10 yrs w/o a war since 1776.

  • one crying in the wilderness says:

    Bring Americans back home if these third world counties want to war themselves out of existance let them have at it, time for America to turn in it's world's police badge .

  • Ask Hindu nationalist from India they will tell you that Mahabharata war was just product of Afghanistani characters like Gandhari and Shakuni.

  • President Trump is fulfilling orders Nesara/Gesara Law, WORLD PEACE!! He had to leave U.S. for one day to go to Iraq re: Nesara/Gesara order ALL TROOPS TO BE RETURNED HOME beginning with Syria!! Next is Afghanistan!!

  • All the wars and how many Americans have died fighting for and nothing has changed. Let the countries fight for their own freedom if they want to be free. Now we have all the illegals coming to the US now.

  • To all Muslims. Don't you want peace? Don't you want a nice and clean place? A house or bunker? But you choose the latter. Because of you radicals, the world is in a mess.

  • MOGHOLEAFGHAN81 says:

    Just to make things Straight. Taliban is not Afghanistan. Afghanistan has its own functioning government elected by its people. Afghanistan is currently in fight with the Talibans that are being produced in Pakistan. Talibans are a terrorist organisation and their main target is US.

  • You don't do a deal. You bring our troops HOME to guard our borders that are so unguarded that we have millions of illegals who have been living and are now coming in through our borders illegally to live. This whole thing is a major lapse in judgment. IF WE ARE SO AFRAID that if we pull all of our troops out of Afghan, we will be attacked at a later date….well "THINK CORKY!" IF we have our borders protected….how much progress will our enemies maintain? NOTHING. We are not using our brains. Instead we have these Warring Generals who know nothing about peace and only about killing running these showboats we are involved in, in the Middle East….IF they had no oil we would not be there…..anywhere in the M.E. Face it, it's our own greed that has us there and NOT because of our National Security. Get real.

  • underdog ishere says:

    North Korea is trying to Provoke Trump ( possible China) to attack. Also Iran is Trying to Provoke Trump ( John Kerry the Treasonous ) to attack. So Possible the United States will Not Elect Trump

  • Bartholomew Beauregard III says:

    It's really going to be great when the truth about Israel doing 911 fully comes out. So many American's now know the truth. Especially the Hero Firemen now speaking out about all the explosive evidence hidden by the Mueller FBI. – Can't wait!

  • thomas dibartelo says:

    We need to pull all of our troops out of Afghanistan let those people fight amongst themselves put them all on the no flight list and forget about it

  • The problems in Afghanistan started when Bush Jr. lost his focus on capturing Bin Laden and turned all of his attention on Iraq and Saddam Hussein. He dropped the ball and Obama and Trump were both stuck with trying to untangle the mess that Bush created.

  • Cut the crap…..this guy walking the dog… Why do American and U.N. soldiers guard the poppy fields… ? Let me see the bar graphs on opium production for the last 30 years.. That will tell the story.

  • Ah ha ha. Said it 18 years ago the arrogant USA thought that it could do what the Soviets couldn't. And the USSR was right next door.

  • Derrick Cooter says:

    Hilarious the US calls other countries corrupt when America is the most corrupt than any one when corporations can pay politicians we dont have a government for the people the pharmaceutical companies charge americans 3,000% more on medication than any country on earth why? because our politicians let them tell me thats not corrupt

  • Now, the advice after all the crap….Lets get back to opium and follow the$$$$$$$$$$$$….The reality that ring true…..

  • Adrian Larkins says:

    History says no nation will ever tame the Kyber Pass. You can make as many agreements as you like. The moment American troops pull out, the Taliban will be back in full strength. They are probably playing "weak" right now to give the impression they are nearly finished.

  • I thank God everyday, sometimes more for providing us with President Trump as our President. We are truly blessed to have him as well as our Country. The world admires him and I even see comments about them wanting our President for their own Country or someone like him. Wow! Peace through strength.

  • I love hearing “old General numb-nuts”, or “Corporal Punishment”, (or whatever the hell his name is) try to pretend on a television interview, like he has no idea that the U.S. is occupying Afghanistan to cultivate, produce, control, and export every ounce of their most valuable resources: the ever-lucrative opium poppy, and Lithium.
    That’s why the “opioid crisis” or “epidemic” is such a pathetic damned joke. The U.S. military works so very very hard to oversee the mass production and global distribution of black tar heroin….
    Almost as shameful and vile as our little “War on Drugs”.
    Give it a rest….the whole world already knows…..

  • "GIỮ CHO NƯỚC MỸ VĨ ĐẠI!" KEEP AMERICA ALWAYS GREAT. (Tiếng nói của giới trẻ tỵ nạn Cộng Sản ViệtNam) 8/14/19.

  • Why are we still in george w bush war after 18 years and 3 different presidents lets come home and spend the money fixing our nation

  • Feldwebel Wolfenstool says:

    13,000 cops in Chicago can't get a handle on all the Wakandan violence in that city, you'd have to be a fool to think you could change anything whatsoever in a big country full of 7th Century ingrates and inbreds…
