Signed. This is the greatest fear I have as we prepare to leave that hellhole. What will become of their women and children. Would that we could take them with us. We know how they were brutalized under the Taliban, I thought then that a UN action should have taken place to protect them, many years before 9/11. And, I think the Taliban will be back in control soon after the last coalition soldier leaves, Karzai can't stop them, he may not even try. Then, these innocents will again feel the boot of their menfolk on their necks, and much, much worse.

I tired this one earlier after they sent me an email, but it won't let me sign. I tried putting in a random 4-digit postcode - which has worked on Australian things before - but now it wants a phone number. Can anyone help on that one?

It wouldn't take my 'signature' . . . until I deleted my postcode. I don't know what's up with that, but it seems that the postcode is optional.

These women need all the help they can get. I am sorry the site won't accept my information as valid, but I see they have nearly reached their mark. Let's hope this makes a difference.

Thanks for the forward Rana, Signed this petition earlier. Being Australian and against our involvement in this war I do believe our Government should do more for the citizens of Afghanistan after destroying so much.
