    This should provoke some serious discussion !!!


    A top female politician ín Holland wants Dutch prostitutes sent abroad with the troops to help them relax.

    Annemarie Jorritsma, a politician for the centre-right People's Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD) and the mayor of the town of Almere, went on national Dutch TV to demand the 'extra benefits' for soldiers.

    She added: "The army must think about how their soldiers can let off some steam."

    The ideas has been backed by the Dutch sex workers union which said it thought the idea had some merit.

    But an unnamed military spokesman, quoted in the 'Volkskrant' newspaper, expressed reservations.

    He said: "I don't think my wife would like the idea very much."

    There are currently around 2,000 Dutch soldiers stationed outside of the Netherlands, the majority in either Afghanistan and Bosnia.

    Any suggestions for a poll on this, what will obviously be very controversial, topic?
  3. Next they will be insisting that they can have their "coffee" houses wherever they deploy.

    Could you imagine the fall-out in the Islamic world if a western army imported its prostitutes into a muslim country? The cloggies should do what 3 Para mortars do: when there are no civvies to shag then they shag each other!

    Also, has Afghanistan run out of goats?

    In Bosnia and Kosovo there are more than enough local knocking shops to keep the lads happy: they just need a walking out policy. The French at Mitrovica in Kosovo have at least 2 whorehouses next to their camp, though they were not too pleased when the ladies stole the clothes, weapon, body armour and webbing of a patrol that had stopped for a bit of companionship :) (the frogs had to hop the 1.5km back to base 'au natural'
  4. And a prostitute in Amsterdam was asked if she thought it a good idea and her reply was 'If I had another pair of legs, I'd open them in Bosnia."
  5. I hope it would be a NATO wide thing, bring in the C-17's not sure if the Afghans would be too pleased though, importing hookers might upset a few.
