What a Sad State of Affairs Thailand has become!!! It started Out as a Protest by Low Class People who have nothing better to do being Financially Backed By the Billionaire Former Prime Minister! It has slowly progressed into a near State of Anarchy!!! So Many Questions need to be answered but First they Need to Finish this Ridiculous Stalemate in Bangkok!!! How could they Possibly Call it a Fight for Democracy??? One Has to Ask How were these Trouble Makers allowed to Truck in Supplies and Materials to erect Barriers in the Center of Bangkok? Why didn’t the Police or Army Stop them from Day one? Now they are Burning Buildings, Looting Businesses etc etc and lets not even think of the Innocent People Who have had their Businesses Ruined because of it? Who is going to Cover the Cost of This? Insurance, I Doubt it? Government? Definitely Not the People Who did it all, They will Just return back to their Village in “Nakon Nowhere” and Lay in their Hammocks drinking Cheap Liquor waiting for Someone else to Pay them to cause Trouble!!! Pity the International Media can’t Show the World the True Situation here. They only report the Worst things that Happen which will Bring them the Biggest Viewer Ratings!!! The Truth is Very Complex and has been going on for a Very Long Time!!! Power, Money, Corruption, Education or the Lack of it are all Major Players!!!
I feel Sorry for All the People Who will have their Businesses or Professions Ruined or Severely affected by this and no matter what Action the Government, Army & Police take it will never Be Justified by the Media Opinion!!! Let Me Ask You if someone Shoots at You, Would You Shoot Back??? This is what they are Faced with! I can’t See the Difference between a Terrorist, Common Thief or the Protesters. The Object of All is to either Physically Hurt You, Your Business or Steal Your Possessions and / or Money! Hence We are in a “Sad State”
Let’s hope they finish it once and for all soon so the Good People in Thailand can get back to Normal. By the way if You had Plans of Coming to Thailand Please still come, Just don’t stay in the Areas of Bangkok that are Affected! The Rest of Thailand is Operating as Normal and the People would Love to have Your Business.
All the Best.
