I dunno, not sure if that's related to their government problems yet.
Last I heard there was a coup and someone got overthrown and then shit went down and then it fell out of the mainstream news.
That was before all this happened.

It's been going on for years... And while we don't know who did this attack yet, it's all going to be somehow related... That's why many have been saying that it's just part of the downturn of Thailand for tourism. Many were expecting an attack like this, and travel advisories have been in place at various embassies

And BTW this is not the first bombing targeting shopping centres and tourist areas - it's the 3rd or 4th IIRC.

You do know that Fukushima nuclear power plant is still spewing radiation into our oceans?

I'm saying that the dangers of traveling to Asia, are greater now with events like this bombing, the explosion in China, and very unsafe food in Japan.

Shit is real, bro. When you know someone who passed away from leukemia after visiting Japan for only two weeks, it's a reminder about the dangers in some Asian countries.
rip your friend..
but srsly are you fucking retarded? delete your account plx

Being Thailand, the potential causes behind this are far too numerous to try and guess
but I do recall reports of concerns that isis/isis supporters would be headed to that part of the world, but again, who knows

The violence that is happening in Thailand reminded of this movie trailer that I saw earlier this year.

Release date: August 26th:

Yeah that's pretty creepy. Pretty much the same group of people most likely. Islamic terrorists from Malaysia and southern provinces of Thailand

On a personal note, I am glad that my cousin Robert decided to come back to live in Burnaby instead of staying in Bangkok to teach English.

He said that it's not worth getting the respect as an ESL teacher from students if it means your life may be in danger with the shit going down in Thailand.

Either way, sad story, more people dying cause of some crazy lunatic who probably has no idea what he is doing, or fighting for.
Studies have shown that terror acts are committed overwhelmingly by sane individuals who have carefully calculated and planned their crime in order to achieve a specific purpose. Rarely, if ever, are acts of terror committed by psychopaths or people that are "insane". As Skinnypupp pointed out, its usually the case that these individuals or groups are severely misguided in their beliefs.

RIP, the HK news reported 20 were killed, 2 from HK.

There were 2 other bombs not exploded, it would have levelled that intersection and killed much more.
