The Masked Tulip

Terrorist Bomb At Thai Tourist Resort

Recommended Posts

Hidden in plant pots and detonated by remote control.

Remember the Bangkok Shrine blast last year?

They got someone with dual Turkish nationality or something for it.

I do wonder if this Hua Hin and the Bangkok shrine bombings are the work of external terror groups targeting tourism?

Hua Hin would be well down the list for tourists. It's where the well to do Thai people from Bangkok go for the weekends etc. The Thai Royal family have a residence there too. Hitting at the heart of the establishment.

Thail Government forces are fighting Alan's Snackbar members in the south of the country. De facto war.

I believe that Aug 12th is the ThaI Queen's official birthday.

Sky News Correspondent Mark White said: "This twin bombing, if it turns out to be that, may be linked to an insurgency in the south of Thailand.

"But if it is, it's very unusual for that insurgency to target tourist areas."

Following the blasts, the British embassy has updated its travel advice and warned holidaymakers there to be extremely cautious.

I love this type of advice. How exactly are you meant to be extremely cautious about potential bombs in plant pots.

Daily Mail attains peak Doublethink.

"At least 10 foreign tourists have been injured in the strikes, which are not thought to be terror related"

Edit: either that or we are witnessing the word "terrorism" morph in front of our very eyes into something else that incorporates "Islamism" and "ISIS".

The insurgents in the south of Thailand are Islamists though.
