Ocelot, I usually disagree with a lot of your postings but this one takes real cahonies.
So I am voting for you. Next to the War on Terror, this subject is a very nervous number
two. Of all the various topics I read in this site, this topic is the least conspiratoral and
the closest to reality. It is also the most frightening. Over the last 20 years, the world
traffic in pornography and sex slaves is matched only by drug trafficing, and similiarly
for the illicit profit thereof. It isn't getting better, and the corruption associated with this
can be easily seen by the way the media as a whole rarely touches this, and drops it
like a hot potatoe. When the FBI makes a "sex-ring" bust, the press will almost always
ignore the story. My link to a newspaper in New Jersey, same topic, lasted about two
days. Story gone, no archive.
But the story source data is:
Americaís Dark Side: Sexual Trafficking of Women
John W. Whitehead
Another is : ďThe Girls Next Door,Ē New York Times Magazine, January 25, 2004
What is being done about this horrendous problem? Though you hate Bush, he is the only World Leader
trying to take a crack at it. President Bush, in a speech before the United Nations General Assembly
last September, called sex trafficking ďa special evil.Ē The problem is that the thrust of the presidentís
U.N. speech and the scope of laws that presently address the problem are not adequate, and willing allies
in such a battle have yet to show up. And you wont see this in the news.
If you desired to make a lasting contribution to humanity, this is the area. Likewise, if there
was ever a topic on ATS that could get you really hurt, this is it. But the "government",
FBI, CIA are not the enemy here. In fact, the CIA does not have accurate estimates either :
quote from first reference above: "According to the CIA, between 18,000 and 30,000
women are trafficked annually ( America)" To get better data would probably cost the CIA more "resources" than
it has already lost. This also may be only the tip of the iceburg. Numbers for South America,
Europe, Middle East, and Asia may be astronomical.
The articles I have referenced will make you sick .
Sample quote: ďAndrea told me that she and the other children she was held with were
frequently beaten to keep them off-balance and obedient. Sometimes they were
videotaped while being forced to have sex with adults or one another.
Often, she said, she was asked to play roles: the therapist patient or the obedient
daughter. Her cell of sex traffickers offered three age ranges of sex partners
- toddler to age 4, 5 to 12 and teens-as well as what she called a Ďdamage group.í
ĎIn the damage group, they can hit you or do anything they want to,í she explained.
ĎThough sex always hurts when you are little, so itís always violent, everything
was much more painful once you were placed in the damage group.íĒ
I will leave out the depraved sections such as how they trained
toddlers to have oral sex. (I am not easy to anger and these articles make we want to
commit cold blooded murder on the rabid inhuman beasts that would do this to children.)
If we are not made aware of the problem and told how we can help, not only are we
helpless but so are the thousands of youth who are sex slaves for the pimps and their depraved users.
Thanks for the public service Ocelot. And welcome to a very dangerous environment. You are looking at a place
that has no rules. Only greed.
