Oh good luck! There will be snowball fights in Hell before any Arab country stops trading in slaves. They've been doing it for thousands of years and they'll never stop. All sanctions against them will do is jack up the price of oil some more in retaliation.

Hi Debbie,

I am sick and tired of they way that these people treat Women as a second class citizen at the upmost some don't even do that and don't even treat them as Human.

That maybe true Rastaman but I don't have to support it by buying any of their junk if we just get busy finding and using our own resources they can then sit on their own oil wells like a butplug.

Great post Debbie! I do not think that enslaving women for sex shall "crimp" America's relation with Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, or Quatar. As long as these Arab nation-state continue to play a role in America's counter-terrorism efforts they shall remain close friends. Once they stop assisting America they shall be placed under U.S. sanctions for their involvement in sex-slave trafficking.

Have you read Donna M. Hughes's articles on the propensity of Arab nation states to participate in sex-slave trafficking, http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/authors.asp?ID=2279

When I was stationed over there in Bahrain and Dubai, it was mostly American Service persons who were using these sex slaves. When ever a ship pulled into port the first place the sailors were told about were where to get the girls from. So it is partly the fault of the United States that this exists. We need to hold our service persons and their leaders accountable for their actions.

Most of the Muslims in the Arab and Persian world are hypocrites. They flaunt their religious practices, but then they conduct their behavior in perversion and greed. I will never trust these people ever again.

In addition, most of the Western world travelers help fund this despicable act by using their services, especially for sex. It would also be nice if U.S. can enforce some type of penalty on Americans who participate in such acts. There are U.S. businessmen who travel to such countries and pay for such sexual services that consists of kidnapped and tortured girls. This is also documented by human rights groups, which you can find on online.

it is totally not true all of the stated comment about Kuwait and other Arab countries. i am stating that with all honesty as Islam does not allow such practice by true believers. i swear to u all that's just not true.

hoho

I think this report is for usa and not arab countries

It is not true that Americans are partly to blame. The sex trade has existed in the Middle East for millinia..The Americans just ran into it just like everyone else has. Also, the prevalent attitude of M.E. society toward the status of woman lends itself to the perpetuation of sex slavery...For the most part in the M.E. women are held to be inferior to men. In some M.E. states, they are no more than possessions with little or no voices of their own either politically or economonically...

Jack

Let me add the fact that tens of thousands of Saudi men gush over the causeway every weekend and almost every night to seek out the pleasures of the night life in Bahrain...Then they rush back home and play the pious, self righteous hypocrits....The causeway, it can be argued was built to relieve that pent up sexual pressure that Saudi Men tend to have little control over...so better that they go over the causeway and have their way with the bar girls and such than threaten to go after their own...So, please, even though there are expats who indulge in this kind of thing look at the big picture...and, for once, take cultural and individual responsibility for your own vulnerabilities..

for God sake stop it any more as behave the womens like human beings.

Jammon04

WOW, I guess all this traffic does not take in the account of the sex trade problems in the USA. This is a world issue that effects all countries - not just the middle east. Yes, in Bahrain the girls are used by both Military folks and Arab men - this will always be a problem for humanity.

rick

People wake up, do most of You people understand the real world, you find prostitution somewhere and automatically assume that the prostitutes are illegally smuggled in and held against there will. 99% of these supposed trafficked women are there on by there own choice. They flock to these lands because the get paid 4 to 5 times for there services than they do in there home land. Prostitution has been around for thousands of years, who do we blame. If you really want to stop this behavior then get the women to stop doing it. We have more prostitutes in america alone than the whole of the middle east. Read the Kinsey report, 1% of all American women have is praticing prostitution.

ub

Okay folks,

Anyone who thinks that the majority of these women and children are fully and unconditionally aware of the type of environment they are agreeing to is very naive. They are lied to and exploited. They are more often than not made to pay back expenses for housing and food and other "fees" that are associated with harboring trafficked humans. This all boils down to women's rights or lack thereof. I'm a guy and I understand what a large number of men fail to understand. Women are equal and their rights need to reflect the same.

I was in Bahrain in 2002 at 2 different times when I was in the Navy. I never saw the sex slaves, but I had a shipmate that said he went and paid for a night with one. He said she was Russian. He also said most of the girls that were there were Russian and Irish. I thought he was lying until now. Who knows maybe he was lying. He often lied. The fact that I was in Bahrain and heard about this going on and I didn't ask any questions to my chain of command makes me feel like trash. I guess I didn't want to believe it was true. He said he saw a lot of other sailors and marines there at the whore house also. I'm having trouble comprehending that guys I thought were like me were there paying to rape women. I can't help but think what if my little sister or my daughter my over there. It hurts to know I thought of some of these guys as family and trusted them with my life. We have been fighting a losing battle against terror. There will ALWAYS be terrorists. My question now is why are we allies with countries that are terrorizing young girls? Allowing them to be raped over and over. How can we allow this to happen just so we can have oil. If we want oil that badly why do we keep giving the countries we basically take over back? Can anyone honestly tell me that oil is worth thousands of young girls innocence? People need to ask themselves is oil so important to me that I would rather send my own daughter over to be raped repeatedly? I know its more complicated than just take them over the country or whatever. It just pisses me off that we as a people tell the world to be free like us yet we allow our allies to have slaves. Sanctions are a joke. We need to force this down their throats. If you allow this to happen you will no longer have our protection. We will no longer be "friends". Basically, I will take my toys and go home! Maybe we need to protest on the White House steps. Maybe if million of people write letters something may happen. I don't know. What I do know, is we cannot condone this any longer. I now they have been doing the whole slave trade forever but it is time for "Change".

Debbie

Cody Jenkins: Thanks for your personal story and experiences. Yes we must think, "what if it were my sister, or child". All those girls are someone's child and sister.

I'm not sure we can count on this White House to do anything, they have their own agenda and that is socializing this country.

Please come visit again.

again, we have to look at the issue from all sides: Arabs or Muslims are humans and are the same people in US or any other country. Hippocratic behavior in the Arab world is similar in the Vatican, New York or any where else so let us not make an issue of it and claim that it is only in the Arab world. Prostitution as we all know is the oldest trade on earth and it will not stop and it is in Europe, USA and Japan...
The four countries mentioned do not need US aid on the contrary it is the US that needs there friendship for strategic reasons and that is why US closes its eyes on this and every thing else so Hippocracy originates from there. Simply check the pimps lists in LA, New York, San Francisco, Houston and Washington DC itself and that will tell us that women slavery is global.
