-i guess due to inflation they cost $2.10 now.

-9 years old??thats disgusting only monkeys do this and only monkeys take advantage,ethiopians=pedophile s.

-Next time you see Ethiopians dont shake their hands and if you have to wear a bilogical suit you might catch aids from these monkeys.

Oh yeah! that is nothing but the whole truth! these ethiopian monkeys who claim to be one of the oldest nation in history don't even have a decent toilet for gods sake! they are an embarassment to some of the tourist who happen to visit their town. If you go to Aids Abeba, even the best hotels do not have a restroom. all you find is a BIG hole dug with a couple of woods laying accross for leg rest while the ethiopians take a donkey style dump surrounded by BIG FAT INTIMIDATING FLIES. I think they should move the AU (african union) office from Aids Abeba to some clean cities like Asmara in Eritrea or somewhere else in Africa.
I agree with everything but the last part. AU is a weak toothless organization (like IGAD) that takes orders from outsiders instead of dealing with African issues. They have done nothing to promote peace or development on the continent. They still have the slave mentality. They can stay in 'ethiopia' or relocate to another African country, but not Eritrea.

I did a search for "eritrea prostitution" and nothing came up. Then I did a search for "ethiopia prostitution" and this is what I got.

How could you celebrate that human misery? What is wrong with you?

We know that it happens in eritrea too:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/2595003.stm

I think it unfair that the girl was punished so harshly for being used like that, but the bottom line is tha tyou can find prostitution in eritrea too.

I can think of another example where i read in a newspaper, i think about 12 or 13 years ago, that many prostitutes in the region migrate to djibouti because there are french and an american military bases there, so they make a bit more money from safer clientele, and with the hope that they will maybe marry someone from a european country who can release them from their personal hells. curiously you don't see many somalians, which may have something to do with the conservative leanings of the society even in comparison to ethiopia and eritrea.

A shabia woman was leaving a tea room in asmara with her morning coffee when she noticed a most unusual funeral procession approaching the nearby cemetery. A long black hearse was followed by a second long black hearse about 50 feet behind.

Behind the second hearse was a solitary woman walking a pit bull on a leash.

Behind her were 200 women walking single file.

The woman couldn't stand her curiosity. She respectfully approached the woman walking the dog and said "I am so sorry for your loss and I know now is a bad time to disturb you, but I've never seen a funeral like this.

Whose funeral is it?"

The woman replied "Well, that first hearse is for Interior minister."

"What happened to him?"

The woman replied "My dog attacked and killed him."

She inquired further, "Well, who is in the second hearse?"

The woman answered, "his body guard'. He was trying to help his boss when the dog turned on him."

A poignant and thoughtful moment of silence passes between the two women.

"Could I borrow that dog?"

"Get in line." All were in line to borrow the pit bull to finish shabia authorities.

I am not celebrating human misery, I am exposing human misery and sexual exploitation that is going on in Aids Abeba with the help of Ferengi. you know this damn well but who are you trying to defend here, your ethiopian biatchhh girlfriend? the irish pervert was trying to take advantage of the innocent 22 year old girl but he was deported automatically after being jailed for few days. but, a case like this happens everyday in ethiopia and no one says a word about it. you may ask why? because ethiopians do not have a culture, they like to adapt the culture of the west which is prostitution and child molestation. secondly, i never said there is no prostitution in etirea but the MAGNITUDE is overwhelming in Ethiopia with kids of 12 and 13 linning up for a rape by an arab tourists.

I would agree with you that because addis is both a more international destination, and a comparatively more liberal society, there is more tolerance of prostitution (as horrible as it can be, in the child prostitution area).
The peace keeper in question, I don't know what ot say about. I think he was just taking advantage of her, because he still could have done as promised and married her if he actually cared (I got the impression she was as they say a 'bar girl'). I think that to put her in prison though is wrong, though that may be a cultural issue, and something that would take years of public pressure to change.

" the innocent 22 years old girl"She was not innocent,she agreed to make the porn,Many Eritrean women agreed to do it.One was caught and everything stopped.Do not paint ur country as one where only angels live inside it.
She was a prostitute, and likely felt that she was going to have a nicer existence in going for it. I don't think she should be though badly of. This is an increasingly common problem with peace keeping missions, namely the guys on them think that they are piece getting rather than peace keeping.

these peace keeping forces especialy those from the USA, Canada, Europe are a bunch of pervert assholes. They use poor innocent african women for their sexual advantage for a little change. If I was the one caught that pervet Irish soldier molesting and video taping young girls, i would have shot his brain out to death before he make it to his country. Pervert european and western ass holes, Eritrea is not thailand. If you come to my country thinking you will get a way with a child molestation, you will have your little tiny white dick cut and thrown to a cat. Eritea is not Thiland or Addis Abeba.
