Damn - my other home nation is in flames, I wish to be there now with my wife and daughter!

One month went well and government could hold down all violence, now situation is going fast from bad to worst. Three of deaths are soldiers!!! Damned.

That means there is no more demonstrations, but civil war!!!

Oh, those beautifull and kind people... I was a year ago with them in occupied airports as usually only foreigner, when government was changed. I almost die in one of those attacks made by reds, but we win... The King of Thailand and wins with us.

My heart goes with government and its "yellow" side in there! Hold on my loved ones, and as a soldier it pumps up to my mind - if it gets too bad - I will fly to you my family very soon and join the fight against redshirts.

Long live the king!
