    Wedad can't bear to live this way much longer. Disgusted by the work, she can hardly stand it. Wedad is a prostitute in Iraq.

    Sectarian violence claimed the life of her husband three years ago. Unable to rely on her family, Wedad tried getting a job to support her three young daughters, but found the men interviewing her didn't want her for her work skills, only her body.

    "It was extremely difficult to make the decision to do this, because nobody goes into this wanting to do it," she said hesitantly. "My situation forced me into it because I couldn't find a job and the government didn't have a job for me."

    For Wedad, who is using a false name to conceal her identity, the difficult circumstances could not be overcome. So she took a step she never would have thought imaginable and became a prostitute.

    Yanar Mohammed, an Iraqi womens' rights activist, estimates there are thousands of women like Wedad working in the sex trade in Iraq. Most are too afraid or ashamed to come forward and ask for help.


    Instead of making war we should be helping these woman out.

    Mind you, you could have continued to live in Saddam and Son's semi secular hell where a woman is raped and the tape sent to her relatives all for that mafia Takriti shake down that shaked the country for decades.

    If I had my way I would declare the Kurds independent (the only sane culture in the country) and let the other Islamic idiots duke it out.

    What happened to all those women whose husbands, brothers and sons were killed by Saddam? Were all of them awarded a state pension?
    Phooey on individual stories like this. Yes there are sad cases but that doesn't translate into a crisis or anything else.

    Typical Zionist response

    If it doesn't involve the Jews or Israel

    Then why should I care?
