As some of you may know, Thailand has had a consistent string of violent attacks in Bangkok in the last few weeks. Not to worry I live no where near Bangkok and the violence does not spill over to my sleepy little beach town. But it got me thinking, WTF? Most of the violence consists of dirty bombs being thrown into crowds. This is not fighting, this is terror.
The people are not loving their government and they feel they are being shammed. Of course all the headlines read are “Tourism scare in Thailand” because 15% of this country’s GDP is from tourism. And it is almost the high season. It’s not a place to be scared of.
