ISA is one of the infamous draconian laws in Malaysia used by the government to detain dissidents and opposition leaders without trial for two years or more.
Since it was introduced in 1960, more that 10,000 people have been detained under the ISA. In September 2011, Prime Minister Najib announced that the government will abolish the law. In my recent comment, the PM's statement, to me, was merely a lip service and political gimmick to gain support from people. True enough, yesterday (17 Nov) 10 people were held under the law!
Obama does not rule out the military option against Iran's suspected nuclear proliferation, and gets the full support of the British Foreign Minister William Hague. Pure strategy of deterrence or true belief in the beneficial effects of war on the economy?

Despite child labor laws in China, child laborers continues to be a problem in China. These child laborers work in agriculture, domestics, trade and services, and manufacturing, even in the making of toys. Children in rural and poor areas are most vulnerable to going into child labor, and many become bonded laborers as impoverished families sell their children's labor to employers for desperately needed money.
