#1 planning to sell her in Afghanistan
I wouldn't think there is much of a market for girls in Afgan. Goats, on the other hand...

#2 Probably a market among NATO soldiers and various contractor and NGO employees.

#3 My first trip into Afghan I was amazed at that this was going on. Mostly run by the russians. It was clear they were not there by choice and it needed to be stopped. I'm certain it is still going on.

#4 Isn't there a large number of U.N. in Afghanistan?
Isn't the Food for Nookie program going on there too?

#5 I was snarking on the Afgans, but it's really not a laughing matter. I forgot about all the UN and other NGO types.

Don't believe everyone is like you.

#7 I'm acquainted with an Indian chap (Lawyer) that has worked for the U.N. for years (I have no idea exactly what he does). He makes an obscene amount of money, and brags about all of the "prime" talent (his words) available. He's been all over the place, Bosnia, Africa the 'stan...etc. It would seem that wherever the U.N. is, there is extensive trafficking for the sex trade.
He is a thoroughly despicable person, I've told my wife I'd like to punch his ticket, but it seems he is quite admired by my in-laws. Someday...

#8 JFM, prostitution exists everywhere, and especially so where men with money are deployed among impovrished people. This Shahina was quite possibly destined to be sold to a brothel somewhere in Afghanistan, where she would have earned her 'owner' a good bit of money, no doubt some from American soldiers (though I understand that has become a lot more challenging than in wars past), as well as all the rest. Prostitution as seen in most of the west is often called a 'victimless' crime because both parties are willing participants; the sex slave trade in the Third World and even many of the 'rough' areas of the developed world is clearly not victimless.

#9 Prostitution in the Umma? Are you shitting me?
Mutaa marriage is at the core of Islam and why Mullahs are so wealthy...it is the 20 minutes marriage organized(for alms) by the Mullahz...then you say "I divorce you" three times when you are done and she can service another of the Mullah's customer.

#10 Mutaa marriage is at the core of Islam and why Mullahs are so wealthy
It is my understanding that mutaa marriage is a Shiite specialty, and that Sunnis have to make other arrangements. You might want to look that up, Menhadden Grumble7602.

#11 on other words Menhadden Grumble7602, Mullah's are little more than holy pimps.
