Britain is ready to contribute millions of dollars to a fund to bail out Taliban gunmen who are fighting British troops in southern Afghanistan.

More than 60 delegations, from Colombia to Australia, will gather in Lancaster House Thursday Morning to draw up an exit strategy from Afghanistan. Much of it is based on bailing out the Taliban rank and file, wooing the Taliban leadership with special bonuses and gradually handing over the Afghan banking system. The plan will be called "Bonuses not Bombs."

The conference is expected to agree a $500 million, five-year fund for President Karzai to “bail out” insurgents who are not ideologically committed to destroying the West.

What happens when the $500 million runs out? You don't have to be Einstein to figure that one out.
