Bangkok Gripped By Looting And Arson

Recommended Posts

"an excuse to kill innocent people",... you've got some twisted thinking going on there bud. "unarmed" "protesters"???,... where've you been since April 10?

An honest witness tells the truth brother,... call a spade a spade,... yes there were many innocents and well intentioned unwitting victim "protesters" in this event who I do sympathize with and feel sorry for,.. but the majority were armed insurgents he_ll bent on bloodlust, vengeance and power plays that saw zero restraint.

Wake up and smell the coffee!

There have been many reports of innocent people being shot, including reporters and aid workers.

All the deaths this week were civilian.

Sure, the Reds have been armed with sticks and stones and some home made weapons, but it's hardly what people normally mean by "armed", when you're facing the military. If they were truly armed in the real sense of the word there would have been soldiers killed...or is this twisted thinking bud?

And please, if you care to reply, lay off the insults so we can keep this a civil debate.

Come on Tropo...you normally have great posts. Way too many pics of reds/blacks with guns. M79's are hardly home made weapons. Maybe all the civilian deaths THIS week were civilian...but that was not the case in the past, as you well know. And what about that army guy who had his arm blown off...as reported here...I am pretty sure that was not friendly fire.

Luckily, weapons are relatively hard to come by in Thailand. Hopefully, all this nonsense comes to an end. Such a disgrace.

Hard to come by? Last month if a mob walked near a group of Police/Army conscripts, they would regularly hand over their weapons and run away. Not to mention the mysterous disappearance of various army supplies from depots. Was there any attempt to investigate the losses?

7/11 Lang Suan... not gone up in smoke, but looted beyond recognition, as many, many other shops all over.

"Looted beyond recognition" - Wow! Did they nick the sign too?

"looted beyond recognition" What is so tough to figure out guy? A store usually contains lots of things and is orderly. After looting there may be little if no things left inside and in disorder, hence not looking like a recognizable store.

....slow?

Slow? I think I'm a bit too quick for you, or maybe you've had your sense of humour removed.

This morning about 11:00 I'm seeing more black smoke in the city, rising about 3x the height of byoke tower 2. Mostly died down by 11:30. Hard to say exactly where but looks to be on the west side of the red zone area. Any word?

Police tire disposal squad?

How dare you call these people "animals". So what did they deserve?

Your type were burning wiches at the stake 800 years ago in the name of God.

You cannot accuse the entire body of protestors of arson just because a few bad eggs decided to start fires.

The army were using their directive to shoot on sight looters and arsonists as an excuse to kill innocent people. It is not a difficult task to clear 5,000 unarmed protestors with live amunition and tanks. This was no victory.

Because they acted like animals, or worse, animals don't start fires in bldgs with other animals in them.

You cannot accuse the entire body of Christians of burning witches just because a few bad eggs did.

No one did. 36 major bldgs (5 man team) + smaller arson, 36*5 +50 = 230 bad eggs.

That was the problem, "unarmed protesters" with live ammunition and guns. I have not heard though that the protester had tanks.

Earthalien, do not learn earthling logic from forums and blogs.

What a shame....these animals didn't get a tenth of what they deserve.
