Violence in Bangkok Again, and Again

.
We are safe at home while watching the Bangkok news unfold minute by minute via TV, radio and internet. It’s a sad insane tragedy unfolding, and there will probably be many dead and wounded before morning or in the days to come.

The renegade Red-supporting Thai Army Maj. Gen. Khattiya, known as “Seh Daeng” (Commander Red) and infamous for his violent rhetoric, was shot this evening and is in critical condition with a head wound. Apparently a sniper took him out as he was hamming it up to newsmen. He just couldn't stay out of the limelight.
