Here's an article from the HindustanTimes, concerning the Taliban's treatment of women and the mood of these women at present. From the article: "Faranos Nazir is ready for a fight and says thousands of Afghan women are tired of the medieval treatment at the hands of the hardline Taliban that has left them living in jail-like conditions. "Taliban decrees, including that women be shrouded head-to-toe in a burqa and their refusal to educate girls or allow women to leave their homes without a male relative, have galvanised Afghan women into opposition and created a bid for action, she said. "'They make us upset. They make us very strong to fight against this fanaticism,' Nazir told Reuters in her white-washed house on the edge of Khoja Bahawuddin in northern Afghanistan, in the heart of territory controlled by the opposition Northern Alliance. "'Because of the Taliban, Afghanistan has become a jail for women. We haven't got any human rights. We haven't the right to go outside, to go to work, to look after our children. On the Taliban side we haven't even the right to go to the doctor. We always need permission,' she said. "The 34-year-old electrical engineer, who trained in the former Soviet Ukraine, speaks in a calm, soft voice as she lists what she calls the injustices of the Taliban regime, which are intent on imposing their own strict interpretation of a Muslim system modelled on a 1,300-year-old Islamic Utopia. "Her voice then rises when she talks about the fight ahead. "'I hope our women can fight. We have strong women and they are fighting against the terror,' she said."

Give each one of those women a handgun/AK to hide under those F*ckedup burqa. They can easly pick out and shoot Taliban solders.

The kindof war they would be fighting, 15 feet is a mighty far distance. These kind of weapons are made for sticking in someones gut or against their spine and pulling the trigger. Up close and personal.
