Let's all get into the gutter

It is generally accepted that the corruption of public life is one of the more serious problems of Afghanistan. In these circumstances, does it make sense for the Western allies to devote $140 million to bribing the Taliban to desist from insurgency?

Or are financial inducements only reprehensible when put into effect without the explicit approval of the Milibands and Clintons of this world?
