US General John Nicholson, commander of the US and NATO mission in Afghanistan, recently told reporters that the “Taliban cannot win” under a new US strategy in the area. However, it is not the first time that US officials have made similar claims.

His claim, and statement, on Afghanistan was not only debunked, but also criticised on the social media. Below are some of the tweets citing his statement:
