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.

Harsh crackdown , it could of been alot worse ! What is / was he supposed to do sit there and watch Bangkok be held hostage by these thugs ? Let them continuously attack the army with bricks, sticks , petrolbombs , and believe it or not GUNS ? Was he supposed to just sit there and let this happen?

Of course not. Abhisit should have worked harder to negotiate. Instead he took the lazy and stupid way out, by bringing in the troops. Actually he knew very well what would happen if he did that - and, he most certainally got it. Abhisit belongs behind bars.

How do you negotiate with people that simply don't want to negotiate?

Give me a break! You should join him!

Peaceful protesters? Sure, there have been some. A few.

But now we see the real face, we see terrorists burning our beautiful Thailand. Burning. Shooting, Looting. Terrorists.

Don't let them take over Thailand, please!

The army should of stormed the scum weeks ago , that is the only criticism i have of Abhisit , he could of ended it earlier .

LOL you have no clue about what is really going on do you.

"Ended it earlier" it would have only started it sooner.

I'm trying to stick with you here and follow the logic. So to end it later would only have ended it later? Will Paul come as superman?

Dear Thaksin,

There is no pit in hel_l low enough for you. Your role in the suffering of Thailand will be a permanent stain on Thai history. A human travesty.

I`m just wondering how Abhisit is going to look after this,as his handling of all this has been pretty inept if indeed he was in control, He has something in common with Thaksin as they are both on amnesty internationals human rights list.

Come on, Abhisit was never in control - even less the police - the army was always in complete control of the government if not the protesters. Abhisit wasn't even an advisor - just a figurehead.

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?

Throwing flowers in the street would have been a better option. It's seems you pro-government supporters think this is the final victory.

I dunno, what could he have done better. It was either bow down to the protester's demand or kick them in the arse. How would you have played it?

Abhisit sure isn't going to look extremely good after this, but there's a precedent for improving one's image by launching a war on terror from the ashes of CentralWorld.

Make them a fair offer. Key word being FAIR.

Abhisit was never genuine about being fair, he was thinking too much about advantage.

As peaceful as can be :) The troop intervention to clear this scum is timely. They have had requests, concilliation offers, tolerance and eventually demands. Now time is up. Leaders are in 'care' albeit not as any normal criminal or terrorist would be, and now the mob, angry at surrender, is rioting.

Time to use riot control measures. Rubber bullets and batons did not work against heavily armed snipers and M79 grenades, now it is at the level that was requested. And the coward behind it all is shopping ... and now that their bank accounts, companies and assets and supply line have been frozen - the mob is doubly angry cos the promise of payment ain't never going to happen. And the crim running the show knew the downside. Bad luck you poor individuals, brainwashed and sucked in by politics. Now unfortunately you will pay a price.

I never did go along with the general opinion amongst expats that Thailand is or was a safe country to live in for a whole host of reasons, but this latest episode makes it plain to see.

I guess you must be a red shirt supporter, probably living somewhere in Esan listening to all the crap regurgitated by PTV. Was the government to do nothing? They gave the red shirts plenty of warnings and enough rope to hang themselves with. Thaksin has a hel_l of a lot to answer for. I hope that the government issue an Interpol arrest warrant on treason charges and bring him back to face a firing squad, but start shooting him in the ankles first and then all the way up to his squarehead. Total meglomaniac and probably insane. Doesn't give a dam_n about anyone else but himself. Absolute prick.

Whats even more worrying is comments like you.The country is in a mess now without stupid farang comments like yours.Maybe in years to come it will be the yellow and red farangs,so you have decided how you will kill the reds.

Let the law of Karma do its job!

one of the most famed thai fortune tellers says thaksin will pass in july, by his own doing (not other people doing anything to him). will be interesting to see if that plays out. maybe cancer is eating him inside out. som mun na

Believing in Thai fortune tellers is about as thick as believing in God and Karma.

Should have worked harder to negotiate? and how do you negotiate with liers? Look they even lied again today as I know we have heard them say before that they would never surrender and here they turn themselves in. When they get some of these cowards to talk and rat each other out they should find enough to show the rest of the world that Abhisit did the best he could and if not for his restraint there would be more deaths. Troll away your side lost!

What was unfair about it?

I suppose what you mean by "fair" is to give the reds exactly what they asked for?

I just heard 'from sources' that about 2,000 troops will be coming into the city. Troops loyal to Seh Dang. There may be a coup tonight. Blackout of Thai channels and CNN/BBC. Can anyone confirm this?
