  • What would be the purpose of CIA behind protests in Bangkok? I’m curious about your line of thinking – can you elaborate a bit?

  • I don’t talk about politics much at my ThaiPulse blog, but I read some of it as it’s very interesting. I’ll grab your RSS feed and read your articles as they come out.

    Vern: The CIA has a history of funding, training and advising military dictatorships both pre and post coup. Their interests are the same as the global corporate elite: to ensure that the rights of corporations to concentrate the wealth of the poor and middle class into their own pockets continue unobstructed. I think that Mong has posed an interesting question.

  • Hi John,

    OK – sounds reasonable… but, is anyone coming to that conclusion now?
