Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva on Monday said he has cancelled his planned official visit to Australia this week after the security-monitoring committee resolved to ask the Cabinet to invoke the Internal Security Act (ISA) in the capital and its environs between March 11 to 23 to prevent any untoward incident during the planned Red Shirt rally.

What a pathetic play. An old scenario. A bunch of grotesque comedians.
Notice the (fake) inference :
-Abhisit cancels his trip
-because a committee resolved (that’s the important word) to ask… Abhisit (the Cabinet) to invoke the ISA
A few days before, we had the “6000 rifles stolen from an army depot in an apparent inside job“… Plus the threats of “sabotage”. etc. And medias (TV, press) are getting totally hysterical about violences, coup rumors etc.
Add all those items and you get the Great Laugh, a greek tragedy without the feta cheese.
I’m ready to take some risks here :
-yes the Cabinet will impose ISA, after being “asked” by the special committee…
-yes Abhisit and his masters took this decision long time before
And the reasons are obvious :
-they are scared to death
-the memory of the riots of last april is still very vivid
-they can’t take any chance
But… in the great Thai Tradition, it’s necessary to entertain the plebeians, the media and all the clowns by playing the Pretend Game :
-They pretend to “assess” the situation
-They pretend to be “reluctant” to impose the ISA
It was really too easy. 😉
The Cabinet on Tuesday approved the enforcement of the internal security law on March 11-to-23 in the face of the red-shirt rally.
Bangkok and Nonthaburi will be placed under the ISA.
The other six provinces are under partial enforcement covering gateways to the capital. The six are Samut Prakan, Chachoensao, Ayutthaya, Pathum Thani, Nakhon Pathom and Samut Sakhon. (Nation)
