Being nice has made situation worse in Thailand
Two months after the coup that brought in a government that offered a kinder and gentler approach to solving the Islamic terrorism in the south, that terrorism has gotten worse. Before the coup, terrorists killed about 49 people a month. Now it's up to 56 murders a month. There are now over twenty bombings a month down there, and about seven school a month are being destroyed. The terrorists continue to concentrate on suspected pro-government Moslems, non-Moslems and government workers. Most of the mountainous back country villages have been terrorized, and "cleansed" of infidels (non-Moslems) to such an extent, that the terrorists can move about openly in daytime. The terrorists are also getting nastier, as in today's attack, where two teachers were shot, then burned to death on a road. Nearly sixty teachers have been killed down south in the last two years....The Islamist religious bigots appear to be fighting for ignorance in Thailand in much the same way they are doing so in Afghanistan. Attacking schools tells you a lot about what they fear.
