Bangkok Gripped By Looting And Arson

Recommended Posts

Actually it started with Abhisit, who knew very well what would be the outcome of a harsh crackdown, yet insanly and irresponsibly proceeded with it.

Of course, blaming everything on Thaksin is the convinient excuse that relieves one of using the grey matter... as to the real cause of the problem.

There is some relief knowing that one day Abhisit will pay for his crimes behind bars.

Another employee of Mr Amsterdam's PR firm. Be very proud of yourself!

After Mr Amsterdam's bumbling debut performance on Al Jazeera yesterday, I don;t know if he will be employed much longer. The interviewer made mincemeat of the guy. He even said that the poor people who deserved justice and democaracy were "in the north"

I believe the word "shyster" applies nicely here.

When you take into consideration the limited support Abhisit has had from the Police (about 20%) and the Army (about 50%) he has done a superb job. I'd like to see how some the leaders from the West would have performed in this environment. Couldn't see Obama bin Ladin from the US, or Mr Dud from Oz or whoever is in charge in the UK these days coping anywhere near as well as Abhisit has.

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

What has happened to the Zero Tolerance policy for hate posts on Thai Visa Forum ?

Absolute horse excrement troll. In nearly every other Country the protests would have ended weeks ago with far more loss of life. It is not Abhisit's fault that he inherited a completely dysfunctional police force and an army showing factional splits. But then you know this very well but you are a troll.

Utter garbage as usual.

Perhaps if you lived in China or Iran, yes but most responsible governeents would have negotiated a peaceful way out. Instead Abhisit took the easy way out by giving into the right wing hardliners.

Have you been inhaleing to much burning rubber ? In most other countries the body count would be much higher than it is here at the moment , negotiated a peaceful way out ? He tried and your red army constantly declined his offers with stupid unrealistic demands ! The army should of stormed the scum weeks ago , that is the only criticism i have of Abhisit , he could of ended it earlier .

I wholeheartedly agree, he showed restraint and force when absolutely necessary. It was time! today is the day, lets hope he can finish what he started

Just got back home from BKK so havent had time to read everything here but I do have some questions:

1/How do the red supporters justify the burning of buildings?

2/Is the burning of TV3 and threatning to burn the Bangkok Post the rede idea of freedom of the press?

3/How many woman and children were killed today by "a murderous Govt and Army that targets woman and children?"

4/How do you explain the paper circulated by the red leaders that showed soldiers killed by terrorists in the south in 2007 and labled as those shot by the Army for refusing to go against the reds?

5/ The fire brigade were shot at to prevent them putting out one of the fires, do you think this is a good thing?

There are quite a lot of other things that are puzzeling me but these will do for a start.

Started to read this thread in the hope that it may shed some insight on what is going on in our capital.

Sadly within the first few posts it had already become yet another finger-pointing thread.

Can we please keep this to relevant on-going trouble spots?

Thank you Abhisit for finally taking strong action. I just wish that this had been done a month ago. better later than never though.

Debatable.

The Thai government let these people sit in the sun for 2 months and then dispersed them with tanks. Under the circumstances, it's not surprising that some of the more volatile of these people, not very rational at the best of times, have exploded in frustration and rage, and are trashing everything they can get their hands on.

If the authorities had mullered them in week 1, it would have been easier and with fewer casualties. But it wouldn't have been the Thai way, which is to let everything build up until an explosion is inevitable.

Shame on you for setting fire to the family home, Thaksin.

SOME Red shirts exposed for what they are. They are not all bad people. There are also some who just want to see justice and democracy. I feel really sorry for them. Is there real justice and democracy in Thaland today? We all know the answer to that.

At this point I think people really need to calm down. We foreigners should do what we can not to inflame the situation. Despite what people say, we can help by encouraging loved ones to calm down too.

Take the middle path.

And what would have been the outcome of no crackdown?

So you must think it's over now? A victory for Abhisit?

"No crackdown" would have been his best option. He's now started a civil war....just wait and see. What you saw today was nothing more than a strategic withdrawal.

So what would have the opposition done if the boot was on the other foot. Thrown flowers into the street?

why would you blame the pm for trying to enforce the law? he didnt ship these people in nor did he order them to burn or bomb Bnagkok. But some how he is responsible? Sounds just like muslim extremist as they justify their murder of innocent people. while your at it blame his mom for bearing since obviously that is what got us here.. <snip>
