President Karzai was voted out of office by the Afghan people in a huge Election turnout which has caused massed resignations from the Taliban Revolutionary Independent Front For Independent Demands (TRIFFID).
TRIFFID, rumoured to be associated with various underground movements from Iran, had been campaigning for a boycott of elections or the blowing up of anyone who voted. The tactic failed as Afghans streamed to the polls ignoring the warnings.
However they didn't vote for the Karzai Party but for the only women's organisation allowed in Afghanistan: the Women's Revolutionary Victory Society (WRVS) - an organisation inspired by the British movement with the same initials.
American generals are astonished at this turn of events. 'Obviously our surge was more successful than we realised' announced General Petraeus 'I shall be seeing the WRVS leader to find out how the country is going to be run from now on.'
But what caused this great upheaval in Afghanistan, predicted by very few commentators, you may ask.
'We were inspired by Joan of Arc' a leader of the WRVS told an astonished press conference 'she showed us what we should do.'
TRIFFID commanders, knowing the eventual fate of Joan of Arc, are expecting a backlash and are busy building a bonfire in Helmand Province, which is the only place with any TRIFFID memebers left.
'This is wonderful news' chimed Hilary Clinton 'the women of Afghanistan are telling their men how to behave. I commend their example.'
