Bombs in Bangkok: My thoughts
In all honesty, I’m not at all shocked that their were bombs placed in Bangkok last night. The newspaper are reporting that its not from the Southern insurgency but from factions of the ousted Thaksin’s government.
If that was true, Thaksin is never stepping is foot in Thailand again.
My bets are on the Southern insurgency trying to get their point. Blowing up monks, teachers, children in the 3 provinces hasn’t gotten their point across. So, its only natural that the sick bastards move their chaos into the heart of Thailand.
But, of course no one is sure of who placed the bombs. Its all speculative right now since no faction has come out and claimed the attacks.
Which reminds when I was having dinner with a few highly ranked police officers 5 months ago, I told them that it was only a matter of time before the bombings took place here in Bangkok. They agreed. I then asked if they would be prepared if such a matter would happen. They said they ran drills before, but the majority of them said if it actually happened they all believed they’d be ill-prepared. Comforting, I know.
I have to say the saddest part of yesterday was watching the King make his address, while the bombs were going off.
