Iraqi Child Prostitution on the Rise



By Guest Blogger Yesi King

MSNBC has come up with a video of Iraqi women who have been forced into prostitution to survive as refugees in Syria.

Bush’s "Democratic Revolution" in Iraq has produced some dismal results, but the story of young girls—some only 6 years old---being exploited takes the cake. It is both appalling and heartbreaking.

The video is served up with typical western-media cynicism--as though America played no part in this latest horror story from Iraq.

Furthermore, how do our fellow Muslims supporting such an atrocity sleep at night? Perhaps it is that I am a naive convert, but I just don't get it.

i take sadaam despotism over america's democracy any day to know my sister can come home safe and not sell herself to help feed the family.

Damn Bush and his Neocons to the furthest reaches of Hell. I hope that their children get addicted to drugs and die in the gutter.
