The 30,000 troops in the Moslem south may not be halting the violence, but arrests are being made and evidence found of who the terrorists are and who is helping them. For example, Jemaah Islamiyah, the Indonesian Islamic terrorist movement, has been showing the Thai Moslem terrorists how to build bombs. But a lot of the bomb technology the terrorists are using, comes from stuff available in English and Arabic on pro-terrorist web sites. The southern terrorists are using more remotely controlled roadside bombs, but the terrorists are not able to obtain sufficient explosives to kill a lot of their victims. The terrorists are also running out of places to hide, as the southern Moslem provinces are not large, and the police and military intelligence know a lot more about who is who and doing what (legally or otherwise) because of several years of intensive snooping around. The terrorists are being found, and chased, through the forests.
