Things are back on track for Thaksin and the Red Shirts.People are dying and mayhem has started.
Connecting the Dots is just making this short entry to help clarify what is going on in Bangkok.
May 13, 2010 about 6:00pm local time the Thai military started a passive containment operation of the Red Shirts. This was only meant to be a containment operation looking to run the Red Shirt batteries down by depravation of food and water. This has never changed and still remains as such.
Clashes are occurring outside of the containment area and that can only mean the Red Shirts are on the offensive and it is not a crack down as some have said. For it to be a crackdown the clashes would be in the containment area and no place else.
Thaksin has placed himself in a position and publically asked the Thai government to stop the crackdown in a deliberate attempt to distort things. As this matches what Thaksin wants and has been striving for, this also matches Thaksin saying opposite the truth that he wants it to stop and blaming the other side.
There looks to be a rough night in Bangkok as the Red Shirts mount attacks in a variety of places forcing the conflict that the Thai military has resisted.
So to summerize The Red Shirts have started the conflict they have been looking for and are looking to place the blame on the Government.
