Come on, ask me a hard one.
What will Man think of in order to keep this crazy thing called WAR in motion.
I have a few ideas I'd like to pass along to the US DOD.
#1: Free bigmac for every confirmed kill, limit 10.
#2: Army College Fund Tutoring Program, run by Debra Lafave, Mary Kay Letourneau, and Beth Geisel.
#3. Car insurance discounts for humvee drivers who never hit an IED.
#4. Real women for CPR training in boot.
#5. Playing cards that feature something better than Arab men... or for female soldiers, pictures of Arab men taken by Lindie England.
#6. Pull out of Iraq, invade Sweden.
Edit to add:
This idea is unlikely to result in fewer rapes, it will just make those rapes more likely to be carried out on prostitutes. You can rape a prostitute
after all, it's not like they'll necessarily do anything, or like they'll do it for free. Then of course there is rape as a violent crime as
opposed to a sexual one- if you've got sick men in your unit who have a problem with strong women, they're probably going to victimize female
sodliers- period. It's not as if there isn't consentual sex to be had in the army, but some choose rape anyway. Ditto for rape as a hate crime
against the indigenous population.
I suppose I could see the argument for sending prostitutes as a morale booster, or an encouragement to earn your CO's favor, but you've got to weigh
that against the morale problems caused when wives and girlfriends start getting suspicious, herpes outbreaks, and as I'm sure fans of snuff porn
everywhere are anticipating, what happens when the enemy gets their hands on your girls... just by the odds and the gods, female soldiers who get
captured have a 50/50 chance of being fairly butch, but i'm pretty sure the survival rate for captured prostitutes will be zero.
