The US, meanwhile, is planning on spending a lot of money helping Afghani women improve their skills - but that training will go no where as long as the religious fundamentalists are denying women their basic human rights. So, while it's a nice idea, it isn't a realistic program given the circumstances that currently exist in the country.
