Taliban win £1,600 bounty for each Nato soldier killed
Miles Amoore

TALIBAN rebels are earning a bounty of up to 200,000 Pakistani rupees (£1,660) for each Nato soldier they kill, according to insurgent commanders.

The money is said to come from protection rackets, taxes imposed on opium farmers, donors in the Gulf states who channel money through Dubai and from the senior Taliban leadership in Pakistan.

So far this year 213 Nato soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan, including 41 British troops, bringing the potential rewards for the Taliban to £350,000.

Taliban commanders said the bounty had more than doubled since the beginning of last year.

it's a good thing British soldiers don't get bounties for making the world a better place by killing those vermin; given the ratio - about 100-1 in our favour, its something else the UK couldn't afford...

Why bite? It's just Taleban info ops. It's dfficult to see how it could possibly actually work in practice in any case. Seems more of an earthly equivalent of the 4000 virgins.

They'd best have alot of money in their pot, those idiots fire off 5 rounds from the hip from 400m away and run off reporting that they killed eight.
