SEPARATISTS ‘CROSSED RUBICON’ WITH ATTACKS, MAY ESCALATE: EXPERT

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

SEPARATISTS ‘CROSSED RUBICON’ WITH ATTACKS, MAY ESCALATE: EXPERT

Post by phuketrichard » Thu Aug 18, 2016 6:08 pm

Knew it was coming, knew the goverment has no idea how to deal with it nor has it ever known.
BANGKOK — Southern insurgents were behind the recent attacks that killed four people and will escalate their campaign of terror if the military government continues to ignore their existence, an expert on national security and terrorism said.

The warning was sounded at a panel discussion held Wednesday night in which speakers identified Deep South separatists as the most likely perpetrators of the attacks in seven provinces last week, a conclusion Thai authorities steadfastly deny.
The police hold fast it wasn't separatists, the army seems assured it was
BUT all the 7 provinces that voted for the new constitution ( which nails Mr T's return ) got hit with bombs.
Go figure :beer3:

I was in Chiang Mai last week and many people up there claim it was a breakaway faction within the army itself i.e.there is a split occurring
dangerous or what?

... or a 'False Flag' operation by elements within the state apparatus who want the Muslim separatists blamed.
