"Soldiers are finding that their interactions with Iraqi women are leading to friendships and, in some cases, romance. With emotions running high during the weeks after Saddam Hussein's regime fell, some soldiers found that relationships developed naturally."

Well in a situation like that, things like this are to be expected. But, me being the level headed and cynical guy that I am, I'm sure that not a small number of these women (women are women wherever you go) have shrewdly figured out that the Fast Track (and perhaps ONLY way) out of that war torn, bombed out destitute sand box is using what's between their legs with Male American (single) marriage aged men.


Think about it.




It's the same thing that's going on in Russia and the Philipinnes. You've all heard about "mail order brides" from those countries. Sure, some, no many of them are "hot".

But do you REALLY think they have hearts and flowers on their mind?

MattD; You may (or may not) be surprised at the number of fraulines I witnessed using the "fast track" when I was stationed in Germany in 1968.

It's been happening all the time, I suppose...Jack

Funny you guys shouild think it is only the women supposedly using the "fast-track". What about the guys involved, the only way they can get some is to basically buy it or what ?

Geeze guys, Young men and young women get together, what else do you expect.

The GI's in Europe where also under a no frantization order too, but after the war they said that those guys got laid an average of 5 times when they where in the combat zone.




OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

Yeah sorry we left that out Pacific, all those American GI's are too hideous to get a woman back home, so they volunteered to go to Iraq and pay for it. How could a decent Iraqi lady ever fall for a warmongering, baby killing U.S. soldier.

And Korea, and Vietnam, and probably every single war in which ground troops have been stationed for prolonged periods in more or less fixed positions.

There's just something about a uniform that turns women (and men) on.

Well by your own assertion G5 the ladies don't like them for their personality so what else do you call it. How about getting out of the 18th century and not seeing it as the women being whores and the guys 'victims'.

Yeah poorly paid 18 year government workers who could resist ?

Again Grant you fail to recognize sarcasm, and how little you know about the US or its military.

This is an inevitibility with any conflict. Nothing really surprising here as there are many Iraqi women who are quite attractive (not the old ladies they show us on the news all the time) and you have young men and young women sharing time together. As a black old timer once told my father years ago, "When thems young folk get together, theys will f**k!"  Laugh out loud

Do I see it as a "fast-track"? Maybe in some cases but not all. Do I see it as something that was to be anticipated? Quite so! Do I see it as a problem? In some cases, yes it will be, but overall, I don't see a massive big deal with it!
