 America should assess own failures in Afghan instead of making Pakistan a scapegoat: PM Khan
Taking strong exception to US President Donald Trump’s diatribe against Pakistan, Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan on Monday apprised former that no Pakistani was involved in 9/11.

The premier took to popular micro-blogging website Twitter and said, “Record needs to be put straight on Mr Trump s tirade against Pakistan: 1. No Pakistani was involved in 9/11 but Pak decided to participate in US War on Terror. 2. Pakistan suffered 75,000 casualties in this war & over $123 bn was lost to economy. US “aid” was a miniscule $20 bn.

He added, “3. Our tribal areas were devastated & millions of ppl uprooted from their homes. The war drastically impacted lives of ordinary Pakistanis. 4. Pak continues to provide free lines of ground & air communications (GLOCs/ALOCs).Can Mr Trump name another ally that gave such sacrifices?

Instead of making Pakistan a scapegoat for their failures, the US should do a serious assessment of why, despite 140000 NATO troops plus 250,000 Afghan troops & reportedly $1 trillion spent on war in Afghanistan, the Taliban today are stronger than before.”
