What do you do when the people you trust are accused of shattering that trust in such a heinous manner?

The 20-page document said local people reported sexual exploitation by peacekeepers in every location where a contingent of the UNMIL peacekeeping force was stationed, highlighting the continuing problem of sex abuse by U.N. forces.

Allegations of sexual misconduct have dogged U.N. operations in Liberia, Ivory Coast, Haiti and especially in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where the world body has accused members of its biggest peacekeeping force of rape, pedophilia and giving children food or money in return for sex.


These reports are coming from wide-flung locations. I don't think its a case of an 'urban legend'. Is humanity infected with some kind of ugly virus?

Sex abuse 'rife' in Liberia

Aid workers and peacekeepers in Liberia have been accused of exploiting girls as young as eight for sex.

Save the Children claims the youngsters were often forced to sell themselves in exchange for food.

Food-for-sex is alleged in Liberia

Aid workers and U.N. peacekeepers are trading food for sex with young girls in Liberian camps housing those left homeless by years of war, an aid group said Monday.

Save the Children, which surveyed nearly 160 children and about 170 adults who were either living in camps or had recently returned home, said they were repeatedly told of girls having sex with older men in exchange for money, food and other goods.

UN Probes Allegations of Sex Abuse By Aid Workers In Liberia

The study found that girls are exchanging sex for basic necessities, such as food and education. Save the Children says many 12-year-olds are believed to have regular sexual relations with men, but even some as young as eight have been involved.

I say:


Yet another proof that Africa is Indeed The PRISON Continent!

Should be a capital offence.

So called peace keepers, so called friendly troops, so called decent human beings.

What they are is nothing short of the lowest basest scum we have amongst us. far away from home in a place where every thing can and is done, they never excpect to get caught - so the run riot with abandon.

Hang them. Child rape is beyond redemption - they have enough to worry about without a blue helmet buying them for the night.

Sex for Food and Water: Kofi Annan's and the UN's own Abu Ghraib

From 2005: Probe: U.N. Peacekeepers Sexually Abused Liberian Women, Girls

Furthermore, Liberia is not the only place, try the Congo, East Timor, Haiti, Bosnia, Ethiopia and Eritrea, etc.

What is the UN doing about this long ongoing problem?
Apparently nothing, overall, but filing more reports and watching.....much like they are in watching the continuation of genocide in Sudan, which like UN's sex crimes, has been ongoing for a number of years.

Bunch of MAFIA and nothing more if you ask me.

Not only that they Sit and Watch as people slaughter each other - when they DO interveen and "Help" it turns out they are actually Abusing and Raping (yet again) the people that have suffered for such a long time.

Sad day for Humanity and for the so-called "United Nations", which were supposed to be Helping those in Need...
