crap. Reports of bombs really do hit you hard when it could have been you. Less than a fortnight ago I could have been on that death list.

11 seperate explosions in downtown Bangkok. 1 reported death so far.

Honestly, what kind of warped logic can think that setting off bombs can further an agenda?

Bangkok hit by series of blasts

At least 12 people have been hurt in a series of small bomb blasts in the Thai capital, Bangkok, police say.
The blasts took place within 90 minutes of each other, with the first one at the Victory Monument in the centre.

Further explosions were reported at two police posts in Bangkok's northern suburbs and in the Klong Tuey area.

Thailand's prime minister was ousted in a military coup in September while the country's south has seen a wave of attacks blamed on Muslim separatists.

Police are investigating suspicious packages found at another six locations in the capital, a police spokesman told the iTV television network.

The blasts took place in widely-dispersed locations in the late afternoon, as the Thai capital was preparing to celebrate the New Year.

The bomb outside the Victory Monument appeared to have caused the most injuries, police said.

According to the BBC's Jonathan Head in Bangkok, the explosions do not appear to have had a specific target.

A police spokesman told the BBC the blasts were being treated as an internal matter - implying that they did not suspect any link to Muslim insurgents in the south.

Our correspondent says many Thais suspect the bombs were the work of opponents of the current military government, which forced Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra from office.

He says bombs are rare in the Thai capital and security is largely relaxed.

The authorities are now considering ordering all public New Year celebrations to be cancelled.

Police do not believe foreign groups or militants from the Muslim south are to blame, says the BBC's Jonathan Head.

Well I'm not pointing any fingers but Thailand has had a muslim unrest problem in the South of increasing ferocity for some time now.

Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world today by the way and is sweeping through South East Asia.

The authorities (pre-coup) were not exactly dealing with this very well, shooting and killing a lot of young kids for even minor crimes.

The new regime since the coup is muslim led.

Just a little background.

New Years eve ... high body count targets which are easy to get to. Bangkok has had many terrorist attacks in the past.

The place and the timing are not strange. In fact, I'd almost say they are expected.

Strange how this occurs just days after the Madrid bombings. Now is it 12,000 bombs, or 12 bombs that went off? I can't imagine 12,000 going off. That would take armies of people to pull off.

With "shooting and killing a lot of young kids for even minor crimes" I suppose you're refering to the Thaksin "War on Drugs" running from February to December 2003. It killed about 3000 people, the official number, various NGOs set it at 3-5 times higher, and it killed indiscriminately young and old alike. The outcry from the international community over these extrajuristical killings was there, but it never made a clear break in international media however.

The only thing it changes was the distribution net and the prices. A general view on it is, that the hidden agenda was to break an underground economy controlled by local godfathers. Most likely it has, it is now controled by the police and their associates. A fact that makes the present situation likely to be police orchestrated.

That Thaksin could stay in power for 6 years, unprecidented in their 74 years of parlamentarism, has to do with the fact he probably was the first PM to have hundred procent control over the police force.

I don't think this has anything to do with religious or seperatist issues.

Peculiar choice of location.

I get the first one; New year.
I also get the first one; Radical muslims are there.

Politically; I don't get it. It's a very weird destination to do this, even with the history.

Saddam related? I don't believe so.

Thanks,
