US Embassy Warns Of Possible Terrorist Attack In Bangkok

Recommended Posts

why only American warning , any other embassies sent their warning ? soundds strange !

The Americans looking after themselves as usual! What's that saying again......"When the going gets tough, screw you"..

I would say that the countries whose embassies are not issuing a warning are the one's saying screw you. You think the American embassy is supposed to send an email to every foreigner in Thailand? They have made a public announcement. I take it you are not an American but you are aware of the warning , so what is your problem?

RT @Saksith: No statement has been issued by the Thai government concerning the US Embassy's warning, it also talks about a "foreign threat"

Before a terrorist strikes he does not ask you if you are American or whatever, he just carries out his attack. If the US Embassy is so sure, then other Embassies should be doing the same, however, the Americans seem to get information from reliable and very unreliable sources at times.

The embassy isn't guaranteeing the accuracy of their warning or claiming to be perfect. While I don't worship my government, I trust them enough to have rational processes to determine when warnings like this are reasonable to give.

You might be over trusting JT. I wouldn't trust any government to have rational processes. Political processes, yes.

That's your opinion but I find the suggestion that the American government issued this warning without any evidence as a political tactic to be completely ridiculous.

I'm not sure whose suggestion that was..not mine.

I do however though stand by my opinion that governments often do not make rational decisions. In fact many are politically driven.

Are you also suggesting that the american government, or any western government, always issues advice and warnings with irrefutable evidence? Or even evidence in the balance of favour of a certain event?

probably a precaution to the incident here http://westminsterjo...-sparks-outrage

I think when they say imminent then they should give more details, otherwise it's fear mongering, or they have become paranoid now. a false flag could also be brewing ...

"They" did not say "imminent". Whoever started this thread did.

They did not use that word, but did say terrorists are CURRENTLY looking to conduct terrorist activities. I.E. Imminent...or soon.

Last time I ignored a warning from an embassy regarding that sort of matter, I ended up in a city which was bombed 30 minutes later. A week later, the very hotel I was staying at got bombed.

Guess I'm gonna to stay home for a while.

Good embassy service?

Not really, it's the Americans who are the world's bad guys.

Exactly. America tends to upset more people. Also sex tourists and sex workers could upset certain people. I was in Bali 3 weeks before the bombing. I visited Paddy's Sari, and Bounty and had a premonition about it. BKK's 3 main naughty areas could be a target.

Haha, they are the world's police, sometimes they must be tough on criminals and crazies. They can be seen to be bullying, but without the police the world would be back to the Dark Ages,

enjoy your free speech , many US and British empire men have died for it

Off topic posts deleted - Keep it on topic or posts will be deleted with no warning

For those who wonder why only Americans received the warning, State Department emails are only sent to those people who register with the Embassy.

I was @ the American Consulate yesterday--They said nothing about the 'warning' to me-so I don't take this so strong a warning. You anti-American 'Dudes' just sit/stay in your chairs/drink Singha/Chang-whatever. Or just "BREAK'.

They dont 'mention in passing' future warnings with random american citizens who come to the US embassay- they make a decision to release a warning, then inform everyone through mass comms means, no early wanring is given to you if you happen to be sitting in the consulate waiting for a new passport!

You have to admit at least the American Embassy does try to at least assist its citizens, which is more than can be said for the worthless cretins from the British Embassy, who are at best PATHETIC.

Imagine having to send your passport renewal to China (Hong Kong) when there is a British Embassy in Bangkok. Why are they even here? Couldn't the British taxpayer save a few quid by simply sending them all home - and leave us all with an e mail address for contact? That is what it ammounts to anyway as far as assistance from those fools in Bangkok goes.

According to the defence minister it's apparently two terrorists that have entered Thailand and they know who they are and they are likely to be arrested soon..

Edit: Was defence minister, not the polic or police.. :/
