I read the Yahoo! News version (from Associated Press) - it noted that some of the "brave jihadis" who ran away (Bravely!) from the first battle to hide in a mosque, leaving the teenagers they had led to continue fighting heavily armed police with little more than machetes. the police destroyed the mosque, killing the idiot leaders, who were so bravely cowering in the mosque. Nice shootin' Tex. E.

The reason why the leaders retreated to the mosque was to force the police to destroy the mosque. It is a common tactic of fundementalists. They used it as a propaganda to show that their enemies has no respect to Islam. Believe me this will be published in many Fundementalist newspapers all around the world as "American supported Thailand government destroyed a mosque ..."

The Syrian incident is still a mystery, as far as I can tell. I wonder about what really happened? I've seen a reference to a local blog which insisted that the scene seemed staged. Not enough police and security reaction to such an incident in that location. And, that the public was allowed on-scene almost immediately, which looks more like a show than either a real investigation or how a police state acts. Thailand was very real, and, I think, a hint of things to come. One of the points which became public, but seems to have been lost in the shuffle, was that al-Qaeda used SE Asia as a sort of the back office for quite a few years. Indonesia, Malaysia are important areas. Thailand's extreme south is apotential hot-spot, as is the southern Phillipines. It's seems to have been totally lost in the public mind that, years before 9-11, in the 1990s, there were incidents in the Phillipines in which arrests of Muslim terrorists were announced with explanations that they had intended to try to hijack airliners to blow up, or crash into cities.
