TQ ka.


In my iReport CNN, I said:

Many Bangkokians would not call it an invasion, and with the 700 policemen on duty to supervise the peace at Central World, the numbers of white-masked demonstrators were not intimidating to the capital city of Thailand. 

The leadership and motivation which drives the mob was rumored to be related to a leftist group of “forest monks” called Santi Asoke – while People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD) took responsibility in the attempt to fan the wave of anti-democracy. 

Both groups, Santi Asoke and PAD, had in the past and present, associated themselves with the neo-fascists organization, Pitak Siam (Free Siam) and the communist movement. 

The demonstrators were allowed freedom of peaceful assembly as guaranteed by the Government of Thailand.

There are many positive and constructive comments to this post but many are emotional. I think CNN may remove the post from the page if people continue throwing unfair comments about me.

But overall I am glad. At least some managed to express their views well that we all can understand even if we do not agree with them. This is all about peaceful exchange of expression.
