Bangkok’s Burning (III)

It’s now 2 a.m.. I can’t sleep. It’s all too tragic. A few newspaper headlines for you:

  • At least 27 key locations in Bangkok such as Central World and the TV Channel 3 station have been set on fire
  • The red shirt bikers in Chiang Mai ignored the curfew, coming out in force to set fires to car tyres in several places throughout Chiang Mai (a large city in the north of Thailand)
  • Nine bodies were found inside the Pathumwanaram Temple (that’s bang in the centre of the current disturbances in Bangkok).
  • CentralWorld on verge of collapse

And to top it all, ex-Prime Minister Thaksin is predicting (i.e. doing his very best to create) guerrilla war.

My heart bleeds for Thailand.
