(who asked if the Red Shirts are Leninist agitators with Chinese backing),
Concur with your concern, that being a topic I have raised in the regional sense on other threads. If China is preparing the ground for a long term plan that includes a resource drive to the South then some involvement in Thailand is predictable. However I thought that the prior Yellow Shirt rioters were more likely to be Chinese stand ins. This is not an area I claim any expertise on. Who are the Moslems backing? Who are the Chinese backing? Can we come up with a set of players, as in Pakistan, and chart their interests?
