Take all American women who are +/-5 years of menopause. Train us for a few weeks, outfit us with automatic weapons, grenades, gas masks, prozac, hormones, SPAM, etc. Drop us (parachuted, preferably) across the landscape of Afghanistan, and let us do what comes naturally.
Think about it. Our anger quotient alone, even when doing standard stuff like grocery shopping and paying bills, is formidable enough to make even men in turbans tremble.
We have had our children, we would gladly die/suffer to protect them and their future. We'd like to get away from our husbands, if they haven't left already.
And for those of us who are single, the prospect of finding a good man with whom to share life is about as likely as being struck by lightning; therefore, we have nothing to lose.
Let us go and fight. The Taliban hates women. Imagine their terror as we crawl like ants with hot-flashes all through their godforsaken terrain. I'm going to write my Congresswoman. You should, too.via eMail, Mon, 15 Oct 2001 13:45:01 -0700
