Default Taliban Spokesman: We will win the war

A tidbit:

Quote:
The man in front of me is Zabiullah Mujahid -- one of two spokesmen for the Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Omar.

He is around 30, maybe a little younger, bearded, but not heavily so. He is slight but not weak and close to my height -- a little over six foot -- and meeting him is a big deal.

I've never taken meetings with Taliban officials lightly, but the stakes are getting higher these days. They kidnap reporters and worse, and just before our interview they had announced a new offensive against U.S. and NATO troops.

Frankly just getting into this room had put my heart rate up a good few beats.
An update on the war in Afghanistan right from the mouth of a Taliban spokesman.

a pretty well located ad well trained badass army from the USSR couldn't beat them, why will the US led Nato team do better?
