  1. A pink taxi would be an easy way to get lost in the crowd, if it didn't have bullet holes.
  2. So his lawyer could show up alone to represent him? If they decide to indict him, then there is nothing to stop him from leaving the country.
  3. https://www.theguardian.com/uk/2013/jun/21/gchq-cables-secret-world-communications-nsa Here is a quote from the article- GCHQ and the NSA are consequently able to access and process vast quantities of communications between entirely innocent people, as well as targeted suspects. This includes recordings of phone calls, the content of email messages, entries on Facebook and the history of any internet user's access to websites – all of which is deemed legal, even though the warrant system was supposed to limit interception to a specified range of targets.
  4. They first claim evidence before any accusations by Trump, then state that it is absurd to think there is evidence. Both articles are written by Michael J. Schmidt. He must think we are stupid.
  5. After the locals cut it, this would have probably come to 10 kg.
  6. Unfortunately my wife says that the Thai here isn't good, difficult to comprehend. Can anyone suggest a better article? I fear that the lack of any decent journalism on this subject is why Thais are still in the dark as to the dangers of chemicals in skin care products. It is so frustrating to try to convince them of the clear dangers when they are in denial of facts that are simply words of a farang or husband.
  7. Can anyone recommend a link of this subject written inThai? I need to show this to many people.
  8. I witnessed when the a British tourist was shor by accident in Haad Rin, Dec 31st 2013. Never going there for New Years again
  9. Instead of spraying villages with nuerotoxins, with machines that sound like giant mosquitos, people shoul protect themselves by taking selenium which negates the affects of Zika.
  10. I drove by this accident this afternoon seeing the 11 bodies covered. Saw emergency vehicles coming still an hour later. I drive this route regularly. The gov't talks endlessly about how to decrease the rising number of fatalities. But they never talk about the most important issue: Teaching drivers how to respect the lane markings and no passing double yellow lines. I swear that 90% of the people driving go from shoulder to the other side of the highway from corner to corner! It makes me sooooo angry. I understand that this accident was a brake failure, and vehicle maintenance is also a big issue. But they just don't push how important those lines on the road are!!!!! If you drive mountain roads and expect others to stay in their lanes then you are putting your life at risk.
  11. The fact is the Toyotas were supplied by the US government to the Al Nusra Front as ‘non-lethal aid’ then ‘acquired’ by ISIS. Al Nusra Front is literally Al Qaeda. Public Radio International – an American public radio outlet – also documented a specific shipment of Toyotas by the U.S. State Department in 2014: Recently, when the US State Department resumed sending non-lethal aid to Syrian rebels, the delivery list included 43 Toyota trucks. Hiluxes were on the Free Syrian Army’s wish list. Oubai Shahbander, a Washington-based advisor to the Syrian National Coalition, is a fan of the truck. “Specific equipment like the Toyota Hiluxes are what we refer to as force enablers for the moderate opposition forces on the ground,” he adds. Shahbander says the US-supplied pickups will be delivering troops and supplies into battle. Some of the fleet will even become battlefield weapons.
  12. Not fair to give the Brits all the credit. I believe Obama left a few thousand Armor Plated hum-vees sitting with the keys in them. Real nice, good job. I have asked this question and many other obvious questions mant times, the media, well 90% of them or more can never answer these questions. ISIS are using mainly American arms, they can sell stolen oil through Turkey, Saudis are (allegedly) supplying them weapons. The public are treated like stupid idiots world wide. Bush once said, we will track down their money supplies and freeze them. However this never has happened and America are being embarrased now as Russia make effective airstrikes against ISIS and their mates, American airstrikes a joke, American spending a joke. Since the ARAB SPRING we have seen nothing but kaos in the middle east and a massive amount of Toyotas and weapons supplied to terror groups. The media saddly are privatised shills and arms companies can manufacture and supply weapons at will and never be taken to task by Obama, CNN ,BBC, or any other PM or politician world wide. I now find that RT is the only media outlet in the world today that goes near to publishing truths. We have to always read between the lines with all media. The world is a sad and corrupt mess at the moment and saddly the media still can convince masses, One look at Donald Trump should be enough to wake anyone up. The Russians are not bombing ISIS. Do you just say whatever makes you feel good in a fact-free ramble? They're bombing opponents of the entrenched Russian interests--the Assad regime. RT , the truth?! It's worse than the old Soviet media, nothing but anti-American propaganda, about 10% truth and the rest twisted or outright lies. You are dangerously naive if you think there is a big difference between ISIS and Al Quaeda. Ever notice how they all fly the same flag? Why are the Syrian people online all talking about how there is finally some positive results against these extremists who invaded there country. Ok, so maybe you don't read Arabic, but then why are US military personel, who are high ranking officers saying the same thing. There is a huge uproar in the ranks as becomes clear that the state department is sabatoging any honest attempts to attack these extremists. NATO and US forces destroyed Iraq to kill one man, Saddam Huessin. Afghanistan to kill Bin Laden, Libya to kill Gaddaafi, and now are tearing apart Syria to unseat Assad. Four countries destroyed to kill four people. Does that really make sense to you?
  13. Let them eat cake..If they don't like it they can simply go to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to drink. The whole dam city allows that. OK, but does Fort Lauderdale have a Buddhist community or the support the trading of monetary currency is for sensual pleasures?That being said, I have talked to many Thai people who read about this new alcohol ban and I am wondering if they are correct. They say that don't worry about this, 'it is just a three-month ban for Buddhist Lent.' Is this correct? Can anyone verify or deny this assumption created by the local propaganda machine and assumed by the local Thai people to be the actual truth? Should we be seriously considering looking into properties or business is now outside the 300 m school and wat zone?
  14. Naive indeed! This is about as stupid as when Thaksin banned gasoline sales after 9 pm or with David Cameron wanting to ban encryption. A big victory for the Islamic communities.
  15. He should bring up charges against these police torture. Then see how the media reacts to that
