Twenty-two Banks Bombed Simultaneously In Thailand

Jim Hoft has a great roundup of pictures and links to news reports, including the following.

Thai police said that eight of the bombs went off in the capital of Yala province while seven exploded in the province's outlying districts on Thursday morning.

The army said that Muslim separatists had placed most bombs in or near banks to cause maximum civilian casualties as people collected their wages at the end of the month.

General Ongkorn Thongprasom, the senior army officer in the region, said: "We received some intelligence reports, but we did not anticipate it would happen inside banks, especially on the last day of the month. We don't believe they are that cruel."

That last line should be surprising considering terrorists have murdered many thousands all over the world and are known to torture and behead their victims. It really isn't though. Far too many still underestimate their cruelty and ruthlessness, and they do so at their own peril.

If only Thailand hadn't occupied Iraq.
If only they hadn't given Israel so much support in money and arms.

Then this wouldn't be happening to them.

It'll be fun to see how this is Bush's fault. Maybe Sheehan's traffic ticket outside the ranch today was a diversionary tactic.

"we did not anticipate it would happen inside banks, especially on the last day of the month. We don't believe they are that cruel."

Next thing you know and those terrorists will be cutting off hostages heads. Nah, they couldn't be that cruel.

How many more arrest is Sheehag allowed before she is classified a habitual criminal? Isn't that a year in jail with no parole and the judge doesn't have a choice if a police officer files the charges with the background arrest records. Works for me.

And at OUR peril. When some of our own leaders don't take the GWOT seriously, we all are at risk.
The Islamo-extremists want to convert us or kill us. Period.

Sucks doesn't it? Maybe all those years telling us that waht we did and what it caused is now our fault makes a little more sense?

Time for a clue card -

Sometimes people just don't really care who they kill, just as long as they get to kill.

A big shout out to all the supporting Madrassas and their followers that just can't cough up enough - now when they go to get what they aren't willing to give, they can taste what they paid for in the past.

Irony? No, that's not what you called it when it happened to us, you called it justice.

Kinda sucks when your past comments ring true but are directed at you, isn't it?

In a way, it really is ironic.

Let's see what Mr. Muslim Unity says about THIS.

Oh, I think we all know what he's going to say. Something like:

(a) "You can't blame all 1 billion Muslims for the crimes committed by just a tiny few"


(b) "Those criminals aren't true Muslims. How dare you think that they are."

My money's on (b).

James Cloninger:

It's pretty interesting that Lee isn't on this thread...I guess because Thailand had nothing to do with Iraq or Bush, I guess. Why is Thailand getting all these bombings, when they have f-all to do with the War on Terror?
