The president also threatened a devastating future response to an intended attack on the US and even alluded to USA nuclear power - just days after pulling the plug on hosting the Taliban at the presidential retreat for a meeting that was to have occurred just before the September 11th anniversary. You waited. You prayed.

Trump was running behind schedule and arrived late to the Pentagon where he was greeted by Defense Secretary Mark Esper and placed a wreath of red, white and blue flowers at the memorial site. But this year, the anniversary was observed 10 minutes late, at 9:47 a.m.

Members of Congress held their own moment of silence on Capitol Hill.

A USA -led invasion of Afghanistan shortly after the 2001 attack toppled the Taliban, who had harbored Osama bin Laden, the al-Qaida leader and attacks mastermind.

What's the likely effect of the decision on the 14,000 American troops still in Afghanistan?

The nature of the offensive was not immediately clear, but the U.S. president said it was ordered after he cancelled peace talks with the Taliban over the weekend in retaliation for a bomb attack that killed one USA soldier last week.

The U.N. envoy for Afghanistan said Tuesday it is imperative for direct talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban to start quickly, and he urged the militant Islamist group to retract its threat to disrupt the upcoming presidential election. Trump cancelled a "secret" summit with Taliban leaders and his Afghan counterpart last week after the insurgent group claimed responsibility for a deadly attack in Kabul that killed an American soldier and 11 others, dealing a body blow to protracted negotiations that were nearing a peace deal to end America's longest war.

The US and the Taliban have for almost a year been attempting to negotiate a peace deal that would ensure the withdrawal of foreign troops in exchange for the movement's guarantee that the country will not become a safe haven for terrorists. More than 2,400 American service members have been killed in the conflict.

The U.S. -led North Atlantic Treaty Organisation combat mission ended in 2014, but the allied forces continue to train, advise and assist the Afghan security forces and conduct counterterrorism attacks against al-Qaida and Islamic State militants.

Opinion was similar among veterans specifically, with 58% saying the war was not worth fighting and 38% saying it was.

Mr Trump has said he wants to withdraw around 5,000 of the 14,000 U.S. military personnel still in the country. "How many more decades are they willing to fight?"
