Freedom on the March! Remaking the Middle East in America's Image!

"Change, whether you like it or not, is afoot in Iraq" — In porn, a story of Iraq's politics. "The openness with which porn is sold in some of Baghdad's streets is almost unheard of in the Arab world." Not if the "turn left/turn right" crowd had had its way. There's still hope for Iran, though.

And this glorious news comes just days after a second American president has declared "mission accomplished" — US Announces Second Fake End to Iraq War. Two victories in one war make up for Vietnam, I guess.

With 4416 Americans servicemen killed, at least 100,000 Iraqis civilians killed, and half the population of Christian communites that dated back almost to the time of Christ in exile, Iraqis are now free to watch such titles as "The Rape of the Coeds" and "Cheap Meat," whose peddler boasts, "It's got Syrian, Egyptian, Lebanese girls; All the Arabs."

'The titles alone — many along the lines of "The Rape of the Coeds" — offer disturbing insight into the possible psychological effects the years of indiscriminate violence have had on Iraqis.'

Sounds like the title was made by Americans. What does that say about us?

"What does that say about us?"

I'd say it says that porn ultimately makes sex, i.e. "the marital act," boring, so the envelope has to be continuously pushed, pushed, pushed, and pushed, some more.

The Rape of the Co-eds sounds like a typical Japanese video title!

Rape & violence-themed porn may exist in the U.S. -- probably more so on the internet than on video store shelves -- but it's been widespread in Japan for a very long time.

Rape videos are not some obscure, underground thing here in Japan -- it's completely mainstream!

I guess when you consider what happened in places like Nanking, Manila, Korea, etc. -- it shouldn't be too surprising...
