What does destablisimg EU has to do with paying bounty.?

 

do you seriously do not get that Taliban does not need bounty payments to kill US troops as is 

 

taliban hates US and has been at war with US for over a decade, they have not stopped or developed love relationship. They do not need incentives 

Do you seriously not get that U.S soldiers are a lot harder and lot risker to kill than Afghani soldiers? Not only are they better armed and protected but they are in much less vulnerable positions. It's a question of risk/reward.

That man would deny drinking water on a daily basis if it was to any favor for him.

Nobody and Everybody, they seem to be the only competent people here. I think Trump should hire them.

Many, many former white house staff have remarked at Trump's lack of attention to briefings, the need to mention his name over and over to get his attention. He may have been told, but was any test administered to test comprehension? In one ear and out the other

I am no fan of Trump. However, the US as a matter of routine offered big rewards for Bin Laden and lesser figures. I don't think the rewards went down to level of average Taliban grunt, but similar motive. "People respond to incentives" was main idea of fun book "Freakonomics"

So you're equating the reward for Bin Laden with the reward for random US military personnel?  From a US President's perspective, the big difference is one is in the national interest of the US, the other is not.

They do not and did not need any incentives , already hate and happy to kill. Or you think with being paid per head. They will kill same soldier twice ?

Gotta ask ya' this - when someone straps on a vest packed with explosives and wanders into a market-place to wipe out whoever - is the raft of virgins offered for this action not an incentive, or is the hate factor alone sufficient?

All you trump haters will bite on anything . Why on earth would Russia offer money to taliban to kill US soldiers when taliban does it and has been doing it for years . And does not need any incentives. Makes no sense at all. 
 

if report said Russia sold or provided weapons , then it’s believable but paying bounty just does not make any sense 

The taleban likely had lots of weapons left from the time they were known as the mujahadeen and the US supplied them with huge amounts of weapons to dislodge the Soviets.
