The Black Dog of Blogging
According to Technorati, there's a blog born every second but only 55% of all these new blogs are still being updated three months later. What happens to the rest of the bloggers? Could it be...

Dr. Shazia Khalid
A doctor in Pakistan was beaten, raped and left semiconscious while at work at a Pakistan Petroleum plant. After she reported the rape, local authorities locked her up in a psychiatric hospital and her husband's grandfather, the family patriarch, called for a mob to kill her because she had "stained" the family honour. Dr. Khalid and her husband are currently in London and they're seeking asylum in Canada since they have family there. Canada however, is refusing to grant them asylum because they're safe in Britain.

If you'd like to encourage Canadian authorities to reconsider their refusal, you can write to Joseph Volpe, Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 1L1, Canada, or you can e-mail Minister@cic.gc.ca.

Where Euthanasia is Legal
Read papijoe's post at ProLifeBlogs: The Only Latin American Country Where Euthanasia is Legal
"Currently, it's solely up to the patient and his doctor to decide on whether to induce death," said Dr. Juan Mendoza, head of the Right to Die with Dignity, an activist group. "There is no legal obligation even to report it to authorities."

Steven Vincent Murdered in Iraq
Sad news everyone. Steven Vincent was kidnapped along with his female Iraqi translator and he was shot dead... I believe from what I have so far read, that she was also shot, but her condition is unknown at this time.

I had been corresponding with Steven from the moment his blog went online. On 7/26, I received a letter from him. His last. I am posting it here so you can read it too. I never met Steven, but his writing was so well-crafted, that I felt I was in Basra with him. His translator is a woman of amazing insight and strength.

Steven was one of the many milblogging journalists, along with Michael Yon, who are not only brave, but they are informative and accurate. You simply cannot get the kind of news in a MSM outlet that had the kinds of raw coverage that Steven provided. He was rare. And sadly, he was prophetic. I will miss him, even though we never met.

Here is his brief letter to me:

Hi Jauhara -- I wanted to drop you a line and thank you for recent kind words about ITRZ.

I also read with some amusement your comments on the site and your dispute with Frank. You go girl!

I hope you find my latest post to your liking. Let me know what you think.

Thanks again for reading and writing and giving me a nice boost. It can get a little lonely here in Basra, so I appreciate your comments.

Yours from the banks of the Shatt-al-Arab,

Steven Vincent

Private Navies in the Malacca Strait
In response to the problem of cutthroat piracy supported by the Triads and Al Qaeda affiliate groups in the Malacca Strait, shipping companies are turning to private navies to protect their personnel and cargo. Predictably, the gun-grabbers at the UN and in third-world shitholes are catching the vapors. Ugh.
Not everyone, however, thinks his services are a good idea. There are fears that having armed men on board could prove counterproductive and escalate the potential danger for crews and cargo.

Government officials, especially in Malaysia, are concerned about heavily armed men operating in or near their waters. “They could be trigger-happy," one nervous Malaysian official warned.

The international body that monitors safety at sea, the UN’s International Maritime Organisation, advises shipping companies not to keep weapons on board because they can trigger violence.

The biggest fear, however, is that armed security could set off an arms race between security men and pirates, who have easy access to terrorist groups and gun runners.

Companies turn to private navies to combat pirates of the Malacca Strait - [Sunday Herald]
Maybe the nervous Malaysian moron should wonder why his government is such a failure at providing security that the private sector had to step in.
Statistics show new levels of violence against crews last year, including four murders, although the number of attacks in Indonesian waters and the strait fell from 77 to 56.

There are around 12-15 pirate gangs operating in the strait, based in lawless parts of southern Thailand and Indonesia, each about 50-men strong and some with links to terrorist organisations, such as Jemaah Islamiah or the Achenese insurgent group GAM. The growing Islamist insurgency in Thailand, where gangs have lopped the heads off Buddhists and government supporters, has given the pirates a new base to operate from.

Security experts have long feared that terrorists could link up with pirates. Last year, more than 100 people died in the bombing of a ferry in the Philippines. The nightmare scenario is the hijacking of a gas or oil tanker as a floating bomb to be piloted into a port city, such as Singapore.

The more everyday menace is kidnapping ship’s masters – the going rate for ransom in the region is around $120,000 – or stealing from the bridge in a quick smash and grab raid.

Some gangs are much more organised and are believed to have strong links to local politicians and crime gangs, such as the Triads in Hong Kong, the only organisations with the connections to sell stolen cargos or vessels.

In Indonesia, where most of the gangs are based, they are believed to have links with corrupt officials who turn a blind eye to their activities.

Until governments in the region are able to take control of their lawless islands and coastlines, the private navy business is likely to remain a lucrative one.
Yup.
