Hookers for the Troops

(Almere, The Netherlands) A leading female politician wants to provide deployed male Dutch soldiers with Dutch prostitutes. It's anyone's guess what she proposes to provide for female and homosexual Dutch soldiers.

From Ananova:

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.

Hmm ... "let off some steam" may not be a good enough reason for the spouses of the troops. Not only that, but the mullahs in Afghanistan might not exhibit a lot of tolerance toward Holland importing hookers. In fact, I'd bet that they would protest quite forcefully.
