    How much longer can the government wait?

    Road blocks, stop and search!
    A state within a state scenario.
    How much longer can the govt sit idly by and allow this to happen.
    They have to act soon.
    When do you think?

    maybe they think like I do and a few of my Issan dwelling friends that they may go home when the rice is ready or when it starts raining.
    Falling asleep and waking up is not the same as passing out and coming to.

    when they feel like it, maybe they are waiting for the reds to burn down one of the shopping malls

    probably a mind game, once they act and killed a few, they will have the support of the entire population to end that stupid non-sense

    Anyway, no it can't last indefinitely. It will either have to get better, or unfortunately worse. What is happening behind the smokescreen, I wonder.

    Everyone is getting tense waiting for the next moves from either side.

    Even the military spin artist has developed an eye twitch.

    Calling for new elections would be the wisest thing. But that would mean stop milking the state budget, wouldn't it ?

    I think the majority of Thai can distinguish perfectly between the cattle and the terrorists in the reds demonstration site

    nobody like to see cattle being slaughtered, not even the yellow (where would they got their rice then ?), but everyone would be happy to see their terrorist leaders hanged by the balls.

    I agree with 4 points, it depends on:

    The rice growing cycle
    The loyalty of the water melon army
    The level of violence
    The paience of Bangkokians

    What crops?

    Anyway, you've missed the boat. The non-farming Issanites living down south have already returned from Songkhran, and we don't expect to see most of them again until Xmas.

    can you wait that long?

    Abhisit can take pointers from Burma, circa 1988 or 2007... Kill a few thousand reds to let them know who's boss...
    Give a man a match, and he'll be warm for a minute, but set him on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    The government will obey its paymasters via fear and patronage.
    May looks likely,disband Democrats so no loss of face a new constitution limiting franchise few murders,many battered arrested and long term resentment may lead to splitism to use the Chinese jargon.

    70% ?

    I assume you have that number from an authoritative source?

    I haven't noticed a shortage of taxi drivers yet...
