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."
