So exactly what IS the Taliban starting wage?

Obama says one of the two reasons kids join the Taliban (other than all that fanatic mindless jibbering thing) is that its the best job they can find.

So either Obama is just insane, or the Taliban has a good starting wage. Come to think of it I never though about Taliban paying its fighters. Could it be true? Could the solution to the Taliban problem really be capitalism?

I mean, what if we just strolled in Afghanistan for a summer offensive and offered them the American minimum wage? Would that be a lot more than the Taliban pays, or would that be an insult to them?

Now either we can win this thing by paying higher wages, or Obama is insane.

Which is it?
