Ho, Ho, Ho and I'm not referring to Santa Claus. By 1968, around 45,000 US troops had been deployed in Thailand. The nation was a staging area to conduct bombing missions in Laos and North Vietnam. The economy flourished. It created new and varying markets - one being prostitution. And believe you me, its alive and well. In 2008, this third generation workforce (now 200,000 strong) will celebrate its 40th anniversary. Ellen says "its disgusting". I'll not be the judge of my fellow man - or his Ho.
