This in from The New York Times, former prostitutes from South Korea are blaming their government for "encouraging them to have sex with the American soldiers who protected South Korea from North Korea. They also accuse past South Korean governments, and the United States military, of taking a direct hand in the sex trade from the 1960s through the 1980s, working together to build a testing and treatment system to ensure that prostitutes were disease-free for American troops."

The scandal of it all is that both South Korea and the United States are publicly against "illegal activities of human trafficking and prostitution" (South Korea even has a Ministry of Gender Equality), so this whole ordeal makes them look like big fat hypocrites. Oops! Better think twice before you use sex to regulate military and diplomacy.
