RE: ROKA Comfort Women
Interesting..Brothels were common in every war.
were stories where the Senior Leadership rewarded their Senior Officers
with such bonuses.
countries Harems are rampant and quiet amoung the elite in those
we have Nevada.
my friends who works for a US Agency went to Israel twice for research.
first time he was intercepted by a very pretty Israeli woman and had a four
type in the story) They sent him home with smiles.
agency ordered him back. When he arrived the second
Israeli's underguard and at gunpoint put him on a plane.
a free flight back to the USA with a dire warning.
Since the turn of the
century to the best of my knowledge the US military has not run any brothels
anywhere, although from time to time the MPs have raided them (and the medics
have mass treated the girls).
Rumors about "roundeyes" in Vietnam were
also rampant, but there were not that many women over there outside of medical
channels so few examples of any hanky-panky. US Red Cross and USO ("Donut
Dollies) were always suspect, but in Can Tho most of the workers I met were
either in their late 50s-early 60s or men.
Korea has always had a
booming business in "boom towns" and the reputation of the ones today is
legendary. Many GIs discuss going down to the "Ville" as they call at least
one of them and prices were quiet reasonable -- one of my female (!) sergeants
quoted me a stock phrase of "F***y s***y one bucky" as the norm.
think it more likely the US dollar has a more corrupting influence on host
nations than on the American women, though.
