Taliban likens US Afghan role to Vietnam War

The Taliban on Wednesday likened the planned withdrawal of US forces from Afghanistan to America's pullout from Vietnam, calling it a "declare victory and run" strategy. "They want to flee from Afghanistan just as they turned tail and ran from Vietnam," the Taliban statement said.

 

American-led NATO troops are scheduled to pull out of Afghanistan by the end of 2014, although the US will leave a residual force behind and other NATO countries have pledged continuing support of the Kabul government. (AP)
