More horseshit? Or is it grrr ... Putin?

Russia Secretly Offered Afghan Militants Bounties to Kill U.S. Troops, Intelligence Says

The Trump administration has been deliberating for months about what to do about a stunning intelligence assessment.

WASHINGTON — American intelligence officials have concluded that a Russian military intelligence unit secretly offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants for killing coalition forces in Afghanistan — including targeting American troops — amid the peace talks to end the long-running war there, according to officials briefed on the matter.

Apparently this is ramping up in politics and in the news. But I don't believe it. It's horseshit. And stay or go in Afghanistan? What the fuck, stay. Imperialistic wars and occupations have been a thing since forever and if the US empire wants to play that game who am I to say no? Maybe we get some cheap batteries out of the deal. (Note sarcasm.)

Lee Camp says paying the Taliban a bounty to kill American soldiers "would be like offering the guy sleeping with your wife twenty bucks to sleep with your wife."
