Thailand: Radicals Refuse to Negotiate


November12, 2006: The violence in the south is increasing, with Islamic terrorists ambushing police patrols, and increasing their attacks on Buddhist clergy. The Islamic radical groups have shown no interest in negotiating with the government.

November 9, 2006: The ban on public meetings was lifted. Martial law is still in effect, and is apparently going to be lifted in stages.

November 8, 2006: The government has offered the three southern Moslem provinces self-rule. But the moderate groups that would run that government would be responsible to dealing with the violence. That appears to be a deal breaker, as it would turn into a form of civil war down there.
