So, Chalerm declared, a couple days ago, 'There is no problem' .....and now we find out there was a giant potential problem. Just another proof (as if another was needed) that all Chalerm (and Thaksin) declare publicly are either lies or obfuscations.

Is the man shown in the news clip - the same man who was, a few days ago, excused by Thai authorities, to return home to his Middle East hovel - with nary a slap on the wrist?


If you want to drag Thaksin into it, you are doing it all wrong. The UAE has some major issues with Iran and thereby the defacto militia Hizbollah. Iran has grabbed some UAE land and the Emirates want it back. Mr. Thaksin is in Dubai. I'd expect that Mr. Thaksin would not be friendly to anything Iranian, considering that his Sunni Arab hosts despise the non Arab Shiite aggressors. Please get your conspiracy notions consistent.

They are business people in UAE, they don't bother Thaksin what some Sunni cleric might say about Hezbollah.
Thailand has good ties with Iran and no issue with the Republic there. Nor would Iran to tease Thailand into doing something that they actually not want or to fight a proxy war for someone else. And remain with everyone friendly.

You will fail if you want push your war goals onto Thailand.

Y


All the people in the U.S believe the government's propaganda
that anyone outside the U.S. is a dangerous terrorist!


It's a generality, of course, but I've found that statements laden with such words as "all", "always", "never", "anyone" and such are not to be taken seriously. In this case I can state as a fact that the quoted statement is total manure. (But you knew that already, didn't you?)


Yes - I know it's "manure" - but I don't disregard the 90% because of the 10% that's "in-exception." Would you prefer that I had said,
"Most of the people..." - ? Fair enough - I stand corrected

I just read there's an arrest warrant out for the guy who got away. Maybe that's why the warning is still in effect???

Very likely.

The Criminal Court yesterday approved an arrest warrant for James Sammy Paolo, aged 40. Like the first arrested, he is also Lebanese.

Search begins for second terrorist suspect

BANGKOK, 20 January 2012 (NNT) - After the Criminal Court has approved an arrest warrant for the second Lebanese terrorist suspect, Thai police are now on the hunt.

The Court has issued an arrest warrant for the 40-year-old James Sammy Paolo, who allegedly is an accomplice of arrested suspect Atris Hussein.

Mr Hussein was arrested last weekend. The police only charge him with illegal possession of ammonia nitrate, a chemical compound used in bomb making. The suspect and witnesses have implicated Mr Paolo as an accomplice. Police are still in the dark about the whereabouts of the second suspect.

In the meantime, the police have found a second safe house in Samut Sakorn Province which has been rented by the terrorist suspects. Accordimg to neighbors, the suspects moved several large boxes into the house in August 2010, but no one lived in the house. Mr Hussein reportedly moved the boxes out four months later, and the neighbors have never seen him since.

Since then, the house has been rented out to two other people.

Another house.... Another explosive concoction.

Who will this suspect say is responsible? M.I.6?

I always thought Nana Plaza would be a prime target for jihadists on a mission from God. Full of sinful girls, booze, infidels (oh yeah, and Arabs). Several pounds of C4 exploded in the middle would create a compression wave that would be devastating, and then there is only one way out. Scary thought.


Three-sided Nana's always been the place that gives me the willies too (and I'm not talking about the ladyboy bars...:-)


Except the one area you fail to mention is that the Jihadists would have one less place to get blown, and to fool around. Most of them are hypocrites, and when someone is not looking, are looking to "get busy", and get loose. Only when their brethren are looking, are they holier than thou.
