a friend at the newspaper forwarded this to me:
BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) _ Police explosive experts Thursday defused a powerful bomb hidden in a car near the residence of Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra and charged an army lieutenant in an alleged plot against the Thai leader, police and officials said.
“powerful bomb” as opposed to a non powerful bomb?
maybe “powerful” because it was near the residence?
and not actually in the residence?
either way. i don’t think killing square face is the way to go. there’s still others in his party. and the khunying who is the puppet master anyway.
but the bombing thing really freaks me out. makes me think of the three southern provinces. so far it’s been contained within those three provinces. what’s stopping them from dropping big ones in the middle of bangkok? seriously yo. it’s not like the military has power over them. it’s as if they’ve elected to stay within the three provinces. i dunno. these are just questions that i have frmo just reading the paper and hearing stuff on the news.
