Taliban: U.S. Surge Will Only Strengthen Resolve

The Taliban in Afghanistan said Wednesday that President Obama's plan to send 30,000 more troops to the country would not work and would only strengthen their resolve.

"This strategy by the enemy will not benefit them," the Taliban said in a statement. "However many more troops the enemy sends against our Afghan mujahideen, they are committed to increasing the number of mujahideen and strengthen their resistance."
