Two Czech Women Abducted in SW Pakistan
If we can put aside for a moment the stupidity of traveling to SW Pakistan, for any reason, let alone being female and western, two women are missing.
Radio Prague: The Czech Republic has intensified diplomatic efforts to try to secure the release of two Czech women kidnapped in south-west Pakistan last week. No one has claimed responsibility for the abduction or asked for a ransom. Although the Pakistani authorities are working on the case, previous kidnappings in the troubled province suggest it may take weeks to find them. The two young women, both in their mid-20s, were on the road to Quetta, the capital of Pakistaní south-west Baluchistan province, accompanied by a police escort, when their van was stopped by a group of armed assailants and all three were seized. The police guard was later released and the young tourists were forced into a brown Land Rover and smuggled away to an unknown destination. The identity of the assailants remains unknown and no request for a ransom has so far been made. The Czech Foreign Ministry says that while communication channels with the local authorities are open no immediate results can be expected. Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzeberg:We pray they are found and returned safely, but its not very likely and we don't expect it. Hat Tip: Birbal Dhar.

Stupid jihadis will kill them.
A smart warlord will sell them.

It's the same all over. Young people are naive. They have the idea bad things only happen to others and if confronted by dangerthey can "negotiate" their safety.
Darwin was correct.
Those that survive a horrific experience usually don't repeat their idocy again.

Perhaps it's because I was wearing a uniform when I did the same thing.
But the problem is the young ladies seem to think they can wear skimpy clothes wherever they visit.
Sucks for the loved ones of these travelers.

The young ladies certainly wouldn't been allowed to wear skimpy clothes in a place like Iran, where women by law are forced to wear veils around their heads when going outside. So saying that they wore skimpy clothes is ridiculous, when Iran doesn't allow any women, whether they are Iranians or foreigners to go outside without a scarf around their heads. Also when they entered Pakistan, I guaranteed they didn't strip their clothes off and worn G-strings and bikinis !!
