Do you know how the UN uses its “peacekeepers” to keep the peace?  The BBC reported in 2006 that

Children have been subjected to rape and prostitution by United Nations peacekeepers in Haiti and Liberia, a BBC investigation has found.

Girls have told of regular encounters with soldiers where sex is demanded in return for food or money.

A senior official with the organisation has accepted the claims are credible.

The UN has faced several scandals involving its troops in recent years, including a DR Congo paedophile ring and prostitute trafficking in Kosovo.

The assistant secretary-general for peacekeeping operations acknowledges that sexual abuse is widespread.

“We’ve had a problem probably since the inception of peacekeeping – problems of this kind of exploitation of vulnerable populations,” Jane Holl Lute told the BBC.

“My operating presumption is that this is either a problem or a potential problem in every single one of our missions.”

Funny, I don’t remember any presstitute coverage of this.
