Thailand's Islamists moving north?

Six bombs were detonated in and around Bangkok on New Year's Eve. Reports are conflicting, but it appears at least two are dead, and as many as 20 injured.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attacks, but the Thai government had issued warnings of terrorist attacks for the New Year holiday in the violence-prone Muslim south.

The fact that the bombs were set off almost simultaneously, however, has all the hallmarks of an al Qaeda (or al Qaeda-inspired) operation.

The king a few hundred years ago would have lined up every Muslim in the country and would have had a mass exacution. Funny the country that doesn't have the Bleeding heart bed weaters are putting up with this bull shit.
