Thailand: Scary Monsters


March 3, 2007: The violence in the south continues to increase, with over a dozen violent incidents a day, mainly by Islamic terrorists against non-Moslems in the south. Most of these incidents are non-fatal, but over 2,000 people have died in the last three years. The terrorists have beheaded 24 people, a tactic that is meant to increase the intimidation of a murder. Today, for example, Islamic terrorists killed two female high school students. Islamic terrorists do not approve of education for girls. The government is trying to offer economic aid, and negotiations with local leaders, but the Islamic terrorists have everyone terrorized, Moslems and non-Moslems alike.

March 2, 2007: In the south, the army found and raided an Islamic terrorist camp near the Malaysian border. Eight terrorists were killed, and troops are pursuing a dozen or so who fled the attack..

February 28, 2007: In the south, Islamic terrorists have killed 60 teachers and ten students, and shut down (or destroyed) 110 schools in the last three years. To deal with this, most of the soldiers sent to the south, spend part of their day escorting teachers to and from their schools. This has decreased the attacks on teachers, and made it possible to slow down the exodus of teachers (Moslem and non-Moslem) from the south. The Islamic terrorists want to shut down secular schools, and only allow religious schools (that mainly teach Islam, and the need for war against infidels).

February 24, 2007: The government now believes that up to 10,000 people in the south are involved in, or supporting, the activities of the Islamic terrorists. This new estimate is the result of more extensive intelligence collection, as the army tries to get a better idea of who they are fighting.

February 23, 2007: Australia, Canada, Britain and Japan warned their citizens to be careful in Thailand, as terrorists attacks were believed to be planned in the capital, Bangkok. The government responded by increasing police patrols and counter-terrorism activity.
