Interesting story... Seems like a valid point. I can see where enforcement where prostitution is illegal, but under these circumstances (or similiary, at a "ranch" in Nevada) where the industry is regulated at there is less a chance that human trafficing is involved, what rational does the gov't have for prohibitting a legal activity?

The counter argument of a parallel to drug use where legal is apples and oranges; drug use is illegal because of the physical effects, not because it is "immoral".

RHEIN-MAIN AIR BASE, Germany — Troops stationed in Germany are seeing red over the Pentagon’s proposal to add an anti-prostitution charge to the Uniform Code of Military Justice, and it’s not just the glow from the local red light district.

Military personnel and their families on Rhein Main Air Base, only minutes from one of the largest red light districts in the world, are angered by the Department of Defense announcement to change the UCMJ. Those interviewed largely agree that Germany is not the place to enforce such a law.

Unlike other overseas military installations across the world where sex trade and human trafficking runs rampant, in Germany, prostitution is legal. There are licensed brothels, called Eros Center, where working girls can rent their own rooms for the day. There are no madames.
