President Hamid Karzai is proposing to draft all widowed woman in Afghanistan to beef up the ranks of Afghanistan's army and police so his country can assume control of the fight against the Taliban within five years, as well as the rebuilding effort under way with NATO.

Estimates range from 50 to 75% of Females starting at age of 9 would be eligible for the draft. In Afghanistan if you are not married you are considered to be widowed. Married woman have been elevated to "slave status "in Afghanistan

The plan comes amid Western and NATO dissatisfaction with both the quality and size of Afghan forces. Karzia believes that Afghan woman can be just as nagging as western woman and given the chance can easily nag most to death One unidentified source says it is advantageous to draft woman into the Afghan armed forces. The source says "no one will know who to retaliate against because Afghan woman wear Burkas and all look like the grim reaper "

NATO officials say they would also like to use Burka Clad men to help assist in the rebuilding programs under way in Afghanistan. One NATO official who did not want to be identified because he is worried his Afghan mistress will read about it says " If you dress men in a Burka then insurgents should leave them alone in the belief that they are just widowed woman. The unnamed NATO official says "knowing that they can nag someone to death should be enough of a deterrent for the rebuilding effort to go forward"
