Chasing scary stories in ChiangMai
« on: February 21, 2013, 08:15:39 PM »
I get emails from Jack Needham's website, which I usually delete unopened.

The most recent one caught my eye, and I duly read it. And was surprised: it is genuinely curious and interesting, as I had no idea a terrorist attack in Northern Thailand was even mooted. As he points out, it was not reported in the international press.

But it is the last element of his report that makes for interesting reading. Is he right? Or, perhaps, he is forgetting Cobra Gold is on at the moment, and major elements of the US are camped-out in force all over Thailand (including, I assume, in the military part of ChaingMai airport....).

This story was in the Malaysian press a week or two ago.

Yes, that's right. They crash landed a helicopter a few days ago.
