The Islamic insurgency grows bolder

It's being called the "Massacre in Yala":
Violence in Thailand's southern provinces has reached a level that shocked many when Muslim separatists attacked a van and killed nine passengers. As Ron Corben reports from Bangkok, experts say it appears the militants hope to drive non-Muslims out of the region, despite government efforts to bring peace.

And more sectarian butchery this week:
Suspected separatists shot dead three Buddhist women involved with a project for victims of Thailand's insurgency on Monday, AP reported.

In a post on this subject a couple of weeks ago it was noted that "the future may come as a bloody shock to the Thais". One might argue that the future is already here, but it seems that even worse atrocities are not just possible, but likely.

  • For one thing we can finish the job in Iraq instead of surrendering. If the Dems have their way and we abandon the Iraqis, al Qaeda will portray it as a great victory and violent Islamic insurgencies in Thailand and elsewhere will be ever more emboldened to spread their butchery.
