Taliban Equates US Afghanistan Pullout to Vietnam

Ad Feedback

The Taliban is comparing the United States' withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan to America's pullout from Vietnam in the 1970s.

The militant group said in a statement that America wants to, "Flee from Afghanistan just as they turned tail and ran from Vietnam."

"When America faced utter destruction in Vietnam, they came up with the formula 'declare victory and run' and want to utilize the formula of 'transfer security and run' here in Afghanistan," they said.

U.S. and NATO troops are scheduled to pullout by the end of 2014.
