"These remarks by the highest ranking US military official are just meant to boost the morale of their soldiers... and hide their defeat," he said in a statement highlighting the ongoing propaganda war.

Despite 10 years of war, western analysts admit they have "not achieved even one percent success despite their pressure", he added. "New mujahedeen have been entering the ranks of Taliban every day.

End.
