Sondhi Limthongkul shot. (Thai Politics)

I post over at the Asia Times Online forums, which are some of the most interesting forums I’ve been to, they are largely filled with expatriates from many countries and Asia Times features Asian politics more prominently than western papers. It’s some of the more interesting forums I’ve been on. Sondhi Limthongkul owns Asia Times Online, and through a strange system uses it as a parent company for profitable ventures even though it posts a loss consistently.

This is Thailand’s Richelieu/Mazarin.

I’ve been detailing the Sondhi shooting in this thread.

He’s hardly Richelieu/Mazarin, though. That would be Prem Tinsulanonda. Sondhi’s basically a twat who’s been asking for it for a long time. Can’t believe it took someone this long to shoot him. Believe me, there are no good guys in the present strife. Just a bunch of gangsters having at each other.
