Svay Pak has a disturbing reputation. The village outside Cambodia’s capital of Phnom Penh is known as a place where little girls are openly sold to foreign predators looking for sex.
One of the girls who was sold into the sex trade told CNN that before she could read she was working in a brothel.
“I was about five or six years old,” she said. “The first man said to me, ‘I want to have sex with you.’ At the time I didn’t know what to do. No one could help me.”
Dozens of girls have had the same experience in her neighborhood.
She says she was approached by a man while playing outside. He asked her to come over and talk to him, and before she knew it she was alone and being asked for sex. Some of the girls were actually sold into the sex trade by their own parents.
It is things like this the USA should be spending $trillions on fighting.
War on Terror - Terrorism is a tactic and is a response to failed foreign policy/diplomacy.
War on Drugs - Drugs are a recreational escape from reality.
Sexual slavery and the abusive exploitation of children is a very real, very evil, very combatable corruption, yet we wage no war on it as a nation.
