As death toll rises, Thai PM defends crackdown

BANGKOK – "Thailand's leader defended the deadly army crackdown on protesters besieging the capital's heart, saying Saturday the country's very future was at stake. Protesters dragged away the bodies of three people from sidewalks — shot by army snipers, they claim — as soldiers blocked major roads and pinned up notices of a 'Live Firing Zone.'"
Sometimes I think the world has lost its mind. You cannot hold power with violence. All you are doing is building up to an explosion which will destroy everything. That region is such a pretty and wonderful place on the planet it is sad that these kind of things are destroying it.
