Army tells its soldiers to 'bribe' the Taleban

• London Times
British forces should buy off potential Taleban recruits with “bags of gold”, according to a new army field manual published yesterday.

Army commanders should also talk to insurgent leaders with “blood on their hands” in order to hasten the end of the conflict in Afghanistan.

The edicts, which are contained in rewritten counter-insurgency guidelines, will be taught to all new army officers.  They mark a strategic rethink after three years in which British and Nato forces have failed to defeat the Taleban.
