Upside down smile

The turbulence in Thailand over the last few months has been deeply upsetting. The peaceful protests to the calling for fair leadership have erupted into all out street battles between the Army and the people of this beautiful country. The land of smiles has been flipped on its head.

So heres what their fighting over and where the conflict stands at the moment:

The Red Shirts want to get rid of the current government, headed by Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva, who was born in Newcastle.

They claim his PAD party should be removed because it came to power after the military forced out the previous government.

They are demanding fresh elections and a new constitution for the country.

The two sides have clashed many times in the past, but the conflict has intensified since the start of 2010.

Although no one has claimed responsibility, anti-government protesters have been blamed for a series of bomb attacks on police and school buildings.

From March until now, the Red Shirts occupied parts of Bangkok city centre including the top shopping district.

A security force of around 50,000 troops was called in to get rid of them.

During one attempt to clear out the protesters, 38 people were killed and 800 injured.

Now troops have stormed the protestors’ camp and arrested its main leaders.

My bestfriend lives in the heart of Bangkok and has been filling me in on whats actually going on, its deeply disturbing, i just get a sense the armies been waiting to scratch this itch for quite sometime, the result is well exactly what they wanted. The protesters are now terrorists..

Typical.

The government messed up this time, bringing in the military, has further driven a divide between the people of Thailand and the ruling parties. The Red Shirts will now deal with this as a dictatorship, and if the King is infact in poor health the country will be torn in two due to civil war.

Here’s furthur accounts of up to date action:

Downtown Bangkok turned into a flaming battleground today as an army assault toppled the Red Shirt protest leadership, enraging followers who fired grenades and set numerous fires that cloaked the skyline in a black haze.

Using live ammunition, troops dispersed thousands of anti-government protesters who had been camped in the capital’s premier shopping and residential district for weeks. Four protesters and an Italian news photographer were killed in the ensuing gunbattles and about 60 wounded.

After Red Shirt leaders gave themselves up to police, rioters set fires at the Stock Exchange, several banks, the headquarters of the Metropolitan Electricity Authority, the high-end Central World shopping mall and a cinema complex that collapsed.

The government declared a nighttime curfew in Bangkok, and said army operations would continue through the night. An announcement signed by Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva and broadcast on television said nobody in the capital was allowed out of their homes from 8pm until 6am unless they have permission from authorities.

Protesters also turned their rage on the local media, which they have accused of pro-government coverage. They attacked the offices of state-run Channel 3, setting fire to cars outside and puncturing water pipes that flooded the building.

Cabinet minister Satit Vongnongteay described the chaos as anticipated “aftershocks.”
“There are violent-prone protesters who remain angry,” Satit told a news conference.

Lets see what happens, my heart is with those who have laid down their lives for what they believe.

This is the face of the enemy
