    Bangkok Bombing last night — by Michael Yon
    The bombs were small and there were no casualties. The timing was interesting. There had been no terror attacks in Bangkok — if this was a terror attack — since May 2014 when martial law was declared.

    But last week our US Emissary Daniel Russell was here in Thailand stirring up big trouble.

    And then BOOM. BOOM. Two bombs.

    There had been no bombs in Bangkok since May 2014, about nine months.

    Before the coup there were about 80 attacks in the preceding six months. So, about nine months passed with no bombs. Then the US sent Daniel Russell, who caused much disruption here last week, and then two bombs.

    Coincidence? It certainly could be. But what a strange coincidence indeed. The US is openly supporting those who committed the heavy violence of 2010, 2013, 2014.

    Yingluck is under legal fire. Yingluck is strongly supported by the USA. Her party was responsible for the vast majority of Bangkok violence of 2010, 2013 and 2014, and more.

    I was present and in the middle of much of the 2010, 2013, and 2014 violence. I was in the middle of events when martial law was declared in May 2014. There was no violence and zero casualties during the martial law. No fatalities and no wounded.

    (Note: Thais often refer to casualties as only the killed, but for the US, casualties = killed + wounded + even more classifications.)

    There simply was no violence from the coup. I do not have to take anyone’s word for it, or the word of CNN. I was physically present, in the middle, from start to finish. Violence from coup = zero.

    But then just last week, we again showed support for the terrorists by sending Daniel Russell who made a public spectacle of meeting with Yingluck, and denouncing the peaceful coup. And then the bombs came after nine months of peace.

    Coincidence?

    Khun Fongsanant pointing out that it is Ai Maew’s response when Junta and NLA filing the case against Yinglux – the way to show that the Shinnawatra clan is untouchable – so the bomb at Siam station ensued – with consent from Uncle Sam who has been upset by Junta along with NLA and cabinet who refuse to kowtow USA

    Saturn aiming at Mars – the prediction about the bomb at Siam station as predict that minor troubles are going to happened on 3 Jan to 12 Feb 2015 and 12 Feb – 23 mar 2015 (Cabinet reshuffle) – but the worsr is yet to come as the worse will happen on 4 May to 30 July 2015 and 4 Nov to 30 Dec 2015

  3. The thing you have to ask yourselves is which side benefits from these bombs detonating at this time. I would suggest that the junta benefits most because they can say to everyone “Look, this is why Thailand needs us and martial law.” This is a classic false flag operation. Besides if you take the position that the red shirts are totally controlled by Thaksin who has publicly stated that he wanted no trouble with the junta then why would red shirts go against Thaksin’s wishes?

    Also, I would disagree with Yon’s characterization of US Assistant Secretary of State Daniel Russel. He wasn’t here “stirring up big trouble.” Most of his speech highlighted the long standing friendship between the US and Thailand. But if calling for the junta to end martial law and bring back democracy in order to stop the free fall of human rights is “stirring up” trouble then count me as a trouble maker too.
