Do you remember the last time an imperial power tried to arm and bribe Afghan tribes? The Brits. Do you know what happened? they were wiped out to a man, not once, but many times. The Afghan / Pathan does not stay bought, and this mistake will be repaid in droves. Watch as they take the money, arms, ammunition and launch a bigger jihad against the Americans. The Frontier Corps refused to fight against Mullah Radio, you idiots, learn from that! and you want to give THEM money?
How spectacularly stupid of the americans to try to repeat that.
All this to be taken with a grain of piquant salt!!!
