“In the future, the PAD may be attacked with RPG rockets, M79 grenades”

You want to understand why Thailand is totally fxxxd up right now ?

Here is what a “general” (ah ah ah ah) can say in public…

Gen Kattiya Sawadiphol, a specialist of the Army, Thursday denied that he was behind the bomb attack against the People’s Alliance for Democracy.

But he said the PAD would face more attacks and PAD guards would be killed everyday if the it did not stop occupying the Government House.

In the future, the PAD may be attacked with RPG rockets, M79 grenades,” Kattiya sad.

He said many groups were dissatisfied that the PAD became blatant and armed its guards as well as showing disrespect to many senior persons. (Nation)

I really do hope that it’s a translation mistake from Nation… Or even a hoax (or the reporter was on heavy drugs and was hallucinating).

As for the “disrespect to many senior persons“, the general should be careful with his words… and should remember that the Queen has given her moral support to PAD’s protesters

Watch out little general… Would you fire “RPG rockets” at people protected by the Queen ? 😉

Bangkok Pundit has details about the incidents last night (grenade attack against PAD… 9 wounded, and 1 dead)

    Could be, if they are protected by SOMEONE else?

    Indeed, december could be hot. After the King’s birthday (december 5)…
    At that point, both camps do not really care about fallouts on tourism : they are eager to fight…

    One more step along the road to civil war in Thailand, that I have been predicting for months.

    Here are a few quotes from the International Herald Tribune concerning the stand-off with Cambodia. They made me laugh, of course the Thais would not report this stuff (loos of face too awful), and of course it may not even be true (truth is the first casualty of war), but they made me laugh because I can see it happening… “… they were trembling…” LOL!

    We cannot sit and watch Thai troops encroach on our border,” Cheam Yeap, deputy head of the national assembly’s finance commission, told Reuters. “Our army needs to be more organized, better trained, with newer bases and well-fed troops.”

    “They left with their hands in the air!” he said of a group of 10 Thai soldiers whom the Cambodians captured and returned. He raised his arms and shook them, adding, “They were trembling! They thought we would kill them.”

    “They wanted to test us, to see if Cambodian troops are easy to intimidate,” said Colonel Meas Yoeun, 48, a ranking commander in Preah Vihear Province.”

    “They curse us and mock us and look down on us,” he said of the Thai soldiers. “They say we have old weapons and ask us if they really fire.”

    According to the Cambodian soldiers camped here, the Oct. 15 battle began with taunts as Thai troops across a small stream shouted at them, “Come on, let’s fight!”

Thailand Crisis

Coup, Economic slowdown, Terror In the South... The situation is worsening in Thailand. Bumpy road like often before.

But this time, it's different.

The key to understand the present turmoil is the inevitable... succession of King Bhumibol.
