Women: The Best Troops Around

Found this and thought it's kind of interesting and for some maybe, a bit funny.

Women: The Best Troops Around

Take all American women who are within five years of menopause. Train us for a few weeks, outfit us with automatic weapons, grenades, gas masks, moisturizer with SPF15, Prozac, hormones, chocolate, and canned tuna - 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 armed men in turbans tremble.

We've had our children, we would gladly suffer or die 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. We have nothing to lose.

We've survived the water diet, the protein diet, the carbohydrate diet, and the grapefruit diet in gyms and saunas across America and never lost a pound We can easily survive months in the hostile terrain of Afghanistan with no food at all!

We've spent years tracking down our husbands or lovers in bars, hardware stores, or sporting events...finding bin Laden in some cave will be no problem.

Uniting all the warring tribes of Afghanistan in a new government? Oh, please ... we've planned the seating arrangements for in-laws and extended families at Thanksgiving dinners for years ... we understand tribal warfare.

Between us, we've divorced enough husbands to know every trick there is for how they hide, launder, or cover up bank accounts and money sources. We know how to find that money and we know how to seize it ... with or without the government's help!

Let us go and fight. The Taliban hates women. Imagine their terror as we crawl like ants with hot-flashes over their godforsaken terrain.

I'm going to write my Congresswoman. You should, too!

Yeh, but the manager never actually does the driving, just the bossing. :)

Patria even better yet are those of us who've been married way too durn long. We realize its the same as a death sentence, so we dont mind giving our lives for our country instead of bein henpecked ta death.

Hey agent99, nice that you dropped by:-)
Sooooo, you need a break...sory to hear that.
Things happen. Can make you bored, laugh, wonder or grin with my jokes, but can't do anything about your nagged-full life...
Just come to the board and cry your heart out.

Take Care
See you around

Yep, with my PMS, I could get Osama. No problem.
His greatest nightmare should be--being captured
by women!
