Not that I needed any incentive to avoid large crowds of Chinese tourist, but now I'm going to double the effort--and not just when I'm in Thailand.

Amazing... another article about an islamic terrorist act without mentioning the "i" word one single time. Instead, it bashfully weasels around the central ideology with words like "minority", "religious", "cultural"....

Politically correct self-censorship in the media is getting truly bizarre.

Another global Turkic speaking family?

So the ISIS is not enough, there needs another european islamic power to dominate Central asia to China's west. And this new islamic jihad is a Turkish language one for those Turkic people side by side with the Arabs dominated Islamic state, oh yes they were SUNNIS.

".....without mentioning the "i" word one single time."

Indeed, although it's not just the media who are downplaying Islamic terrorism: the Thai govt and police had also been angrily (and pathetically) denying the Islamic role.... until just recently.

Reminds me right after of the mass murders of Jewish children in Toulouse, France, when Sarkosy and the French police insisted it was "neo-Nazis." LOL.

I figured both those cases out about 10 seconds after first hearing the news. Why are our leaders and policymakers in such denial?

Beats me too. Maybe the dependence on Middle Eastern oil has something to do with it`? What totally amazes me is how the entire mainstream media landscape plays along with it.
