Re: ''Only the reds to blame'' (Postbag, Sept 19). As an impartial observer on events in Thailand it was interesting to read J C Wilcox's comment. I can't say I agree with blaming one opposing faction against another, especially as a guest in Thailand. I can also recall another coloured shirt group that invaded airports and commandeered parliament buildings for months. But I'm not going to direct blame with emotive language such as ''aggressors'' and ''use of violence'' because I don't believe half of what I see or read in either the local or international media.
So I seriously question the accuracy of the events as recounted in this J C Wilcox letter. Human Rights Watch have interviewed witnesses at massacres and have reports on their website.
I recommend people use this as the best source of information.
