"Pornographic pictures in exchange for horrific images
of dead corpses. The macabre exchange happens through internet through a highly 'erotical' (?) site and the US soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq."
Now that's fucked up! (it really is, don't click through if you have a weak stomach!)
This news comes through Italian newspaper La Repubblica and newsagency ANSABut first to mention it seems Italian blogger nicked 'Staib'. Sabbah put it on his Jordan blog It was published July 5. on del.icio.us - netporn - warpornAnd even months before that it was mentioned at Fleshbot.com And now comes the best part (or worst, that's how I see it :("All pictures and video displayed on this site are of people 18 years of age or older. This site is owned and operated out of Amsterdam, Netherlands and adheres to all Dutch laws and regulations regarding nudity and adult content. Please make sure that viewing adult related content is not a violation of any laws or regulations in the area for which you are viewing it." Great. No violations are involved here. Oh yes, of course; ethics has to do nothing whatsoever with LAW. Where have i seen that before??? Pffeewww... Update 25/8: I asked Dutch 'web-police' about the site, and they took a look, and as I was just told: "In fact we can't do anything about it. It is just legal. Bad taste is no crime."The site is registered by someone who also made this site for a school in Belgium.
And just a little bit off topic: "Widespread sexual harrassment of female students at the Army and Navy military academies is fostering an environment in which sexual assaults are likely to occur, the Pentagon reported to US Congress."
You know Stone's 'Hidden History of the Korean War'?
