Thailand: Embattled US-backed Regime Planning to Stage More Violence

Warned against a day before violence unfolded Saturday night into Sunday morning, the regime of Thaksin Shinawatra and his nepotist appointed proxy (and sister) Yingluck Shinawatra’ plans to utilize armed militants  to crush dissent in the streets of Bangkok has now become an open secret. It was first utilized beside a stadium where a pro-regime rally was being held. At least 4 people died, the first of whom has been confirmed as one of several thousand students from a nearby university protesting the noise and disruption the pro-regime rally was creating for nearly a week in vain attempts to match dissent out in the streets.

The gunmen were black-clad, many with identifiable markings matching those of Thaksin Shinawatra’s more extremist devotees.

Despite the violence, protests continued throughout the following day across the capital were several more key government buildings were taken over. At one location, prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra was forced to flee and has been in hiding ever since. Her deputy prime minister, Pracha Promnok, addressed the nation of the regime’s plans, in her absence.

The materials were recovered during the day’s protesting activities as one government building after another fell back into the people’s hands. 


As news, images, video, and even admissions began to spread across the local media (conveniently looked over by Western media outlets), further details of a greater plot began to unfold. Several locations taken over by protesters appeared to be rigged for arson. Protest leaders put the fuel and equipment on display in order to expose the rouse in case the regime attempts to blame arson or other forms of terrorism elsewhere.

During the deputy prime minister’s statement to the country this evening, he warned the public against going out on to the streets from 10pm on Sunday night to 5am, before claiming, “I can affirm that the government has control of all situations.”

This immediately rekindled fears that the violence carried out by regime militants near the university is about to be repeated in the streets of Bangkok tonight. While the regime has dispersed its counter-rally after bloodshed near the university, many fear this was done to intentionally disassociate the regime from any violence that they are preparing to stage with their shadowy militant groups throughout the night.

Just as it was stated before last night’s violence, it must be stated again – any blood shed overnight will see the regime pointed out as the primary suspects – having conspired and been caught already carrying out deadly violence against dissenters.
