    Fire at Lumpini Park pretty much out now, though smoke cloud is still hanging low. The fire on Rama IV is gone as well.

    Arr yes, martial law is the northern provinces. Future elections canceled because of the civil strife. Army death squads abducting suspects from their homes.
    Indeed. This is Abhisits vision for the future of Thailand in preference to facing elections.

    So, by your “let’s hope” statement you are advocating armed insurrection rather then the ballot box.

    "So, by your “let’s hope” statement you are advocating armed insurrection rather then the ballot box. "

    Yes, I would welcome their entire elite system being swept away (and i'm otherwise impartial, its not my system, its their affair). It seems to have to be by force now as they just won't reform voluntarily if it means less money for them.

    Then real political party formation might begin - without those who claim to be above it all meddling constantly and relying on the army in a heavily stage-managed pseudo-democracy. Its the only way, they've proven they can't abide by elections. So be it. They have to be overthrown. Som nam nar to them.

    A country whose elites and forces of law and order prosper by selling the kids of farmers to farangs. Its mediaeval.

    Oh, so the Govt. wasn't lying when they said the Reds were republican & anti-monarchist? You should hope that the rest of Thailand don't find this out or the Reds will be in for a world of hurt.

    Not so sure about that. People out there are angry and they have a pretty good idea who is behind Abhisit.

    I don't think this is going away soon....the main rally site is only part of the clean up. The entire middle of the city is under siege. The governments stated aim, that this will be the last operation, is ridiculous. Unless they attack the reds at all points, then this is only just beginning.

    I don't see the reds outside the protest area going home.

    If this- troops "firing from heavy machine guns" at protesters- is true, then it is time for the black shirts to start shooting back in earnest.

    Abhisit needs to be hauled before the Hague.

    Don't know how you can come to this conclusion. They could of went in hard from day one with tanks, Mk 47's and all sorts of fire power resulting in blowing them back to the North but have played the soft game and given them a chance to go home with there balls intact.

    Suppose when they blow them away now you will say that they are being to extreme.
    No, I'd say it was perfectly reasonable and should have done it weeks ago.
    That's what they are doing now and was only ever going to be the answer.
    Falling asleep and waking up is not the same as passing out and coming to.
