KABUL, Afghanistan – The Taliban on Friday rejected the review of President Barack Obama's year-old war strategy in Afghanistan, saying that it has failed on both the military and the civil administration fronts.

"It is a failed strategy, not only on the military side but also in civilian and administrative affairs. Public services in Afghanistan have failed. Corruption, insecurity and also the civilian casualties are a result of failed American strategy," Mujahid said.

"President Obama is also talking about progress, but it is clear for everyone that the reality is completely the opposite of what he says," he added.

I dont think there has been much progess in the war. This year has been the deadliest year of the war. I dont really see an end to this war anytime soon, unless one side just decides to quit.

I think the US pulling out of Afghanistan as soon as possible would be the best thing to do. By soon, I mean really soon, not 2014, more like in a few months. The longer we stay there, the more people are going to die, and more money wasted.
