“..Speaking to Commons committee, U.S. scholar Barnett Rubin and Gordon Smith painted a bleak image for the situation in Afghanistan.

Their remarks as well as remarks by Mullah Dadullah contradicted a statement made a few days earlier by Canada’s top military commander, Gen. Rick Hillier, who claimed that great progress is being made in Afghanistan.

On one hand, Dadullah asserted that Taliban, which although ousted from power in 2001 its fighters maintained a hit-and-run guerrilla war against U.S.-led occupation and Afghan forces, now has the ability and the weapons to fight foreign troops for a long time.

“We have sent thousands of Taliban fighters to all Afghan cities for attacks on foreign troops and their Afghan puppets,” Dadullah said.

“We will turn our motherland into the graveyard of the U.S. forces and their families should wait for their dead bodies….””
