"The United States bears enormous responsibility for the explosion of sexual exploitation in many areas of the world. During the Vietnam War, Thailand was the primary rest and recreation center for U.S. troops. In the Philippines, servicemen based at Subic Bay and Olongapo created the demand for which thousands of women and children were “turned out” for prostitution. Estimates of those in prostitution in Thailand range from 300,000 to 2.8 million, of which one-third are children. In the Philippines, the estimates are 300,000 women in prostitution and 75,000 prostituted children."
