    Islam is an antiquated religion and needs to either modernize with the times or be completely eradicated.
    There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.

    Thailand is always preparing for civil war, and it never happens. When I went there 2 years ago, the airport was shut down 2 weeks before I got there, and then shut down again a week after I left. I got lucky I guess.

    The Thai people take the threats only so far until their very way of life is threatened and then they stop demonstrating, or the government intervenes.

    If they really want civil war then they need to ditch the monarchy and have it out, cause every time they try to do it any other ways, the monarchy intervenes and puts everyone back in their corner.

    It's the Muslims. They keep acting up. And when they do they get slapped back down again because they don't quite have the numbers yet. But they are birthing like rats and someday will have the numbers and then they'll take over Thailand like they plan to do the entire planet.

    I do not agree with thjis, it is only radical extremists that cause problems the rest are peace lovers.

    I can't be so certain about that. Thailand cannot keep going through this cycle where the people elect a government, that government is ousted by the military or some politicized court case, the government is replaced with one affiliated with the Bangkok elites and then when elections come around the people they ousted get elected again. Something has to give in this situation.

    Thailand has been having these issues for years now. Their former prime minister was ousted years ago but still is popular among the poor so his supporters keep clashing against the current government.

    As long as the old king is around, that isn't going to happen. His son is maybe a different matter, but it isn't happening now.

    The military will back the current government. Which was just reelected. The opposition is acting like sore losers, sure, but that isn't enough for the winners to launch a civil war over.
