What is Abby thinking about????? Is he determined to kill the country and the tourist industry forever?
In Phuket you dont need a crowd like in Pattaya. All you need to do is to make a "Deep South" style bomb attack. Easy to blame on the insurgents in the South. Phuket had schools burned in 2004, and also had airport blockades.
Sure you can beef up security and then possibly avoid a new incident, but what are the costs??? June signals the beginning of the summer holidays in many countries and a high season in Thailand. I bet that tourist will be happy meeting a soldier on each street corner, and their vehicles/busses being stopped and searched in numerous check points!!!!
If this attempt fails, Thailand is gone for a VERY long time. If Abby was honest and realistic, he would admit that Thailand is the wrong place for such a summit at the moment, and ask for another ASEAN member to arrange it. He had succes in Hua Hin, but the reason for the peace there is easy to explain (if you consider who is spending most of his time there).
Abby, please wake up. You are not in Eton/Oxford anymore!!!!!!!
