"You can smell the defeat"

NATO Secretary General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer said Wednesday that the Taliban are mistaken if they believe they can win the south.

"They are wrong. Because they cannot win, they will not win," the NATO chief said. "That is why we are engaged in combat as well at this very moment."

Another NATO commander on the ground said coalition troops can sense the downfall of the Taliban.

"You [can] smell defeat when you've been in the army for a bit and we're beginning to whiff it there," said Lt.-Gen. David Richards.

He praised the roughly 2,300 Canadians soldiers stationed in southern Afghanistan.

"You would be proud of the way your Canadian soldiers have conducted themselves in absolutely the highest traditions of your armed force," said Richards.
