  1. Authorities in Chonburi Province successfully dismantled a fake monk gang operating in the picturesque Sriracha mountains. The gang was accused of deceiving villagers and collecting funds by posing as representatives of a specific temple for religious purposes. The operation was initiated following complaints from local residents about the establishment of a counterfeit monastery in the region. Undercover immigration officers closely monitored the suspicious activities of the individuals involved and gathered crucial information before charging the suspects. The investigative team executed a raid on November 30 and apprehended four Cambodian nationals dressed as monks. The first suspect was arrested in the Suphalerk market in Surasak Sub-district, Sriracha District, who led the officers up to the hideaway on the hill where three more were found... https://www.pattayamail.com/news/fake-cambodian-monk-gang-busted-in-sriracha-mountains-446793 I'm off to the Local Temple here in NZ, this morning.

  9. In order to have a realistic training exercise, there must be explosions and death. Otherwise it's not realistic.

    When Queen Victoria sent her Soldiers to New Zealand and "Conquered/Colonised/Came to a Treaty Agreement" all those year ago, she must have done it for some sort of wealth aggregation. I wonder what the financial benefit, to her pile of money was. Even though NZ has since become somewhat independent, I would not be surprised if NZ is still sending some sort of payment or wink wink "royalty" to her descendants. And then I came across the following story: Bona Vacantia. In which people, who die intestate, in some parts of Britain have their assets, given to the Royals. By sleight of hand and describing such, as something else, Charles makes a lot of "private income". Excerpt - "...Almost half of bona vacantia revenues – £29.5m over the last decade – have been spent by the duchy on what it calls “costs of palatinate administration and historical obligations”. The administrative costs are understood to be a reference to the operation of the bona vacantia system, including solicitors’ fees. The reference to “historical obligations” is more opaque. It includes the Savoy chapel but appears in large part to be spent on “upkeep of castles and historic monuments”...

  11. A tragic incident occurred during a fire extinguishing exercise at a sugar factory in Uttaradit Province where a gas tank exploded, resulting in the death of an instructor. The victim, identified as Mr. Surachart, a municipal officer. His body was initially taken to the hospital for a post-mortem examination before being handed over to relatives for religious rites. According to officials, the gas tank explosion occurred during a fire extinguishing drill. Preliminary information indicates that the tank involved was a modified cooking gas cylinder, refilled with flammable liquid and nitrogen gas to be used in the drill. (oooh!) The equipment had been in use for an extended period. At the time of the incident, the deceased victim was in charge of controlling the valve on the tank. The police are currently investigating the incident to determine the exact cause. (TNA) https://www.pattayamail.com/thailandnews/gas-tank-explodes-during-fire-drill-killing-1-in-uttaradit-446079

    You do realise that I'm taking a piss, on both side's declared religions, that both, state they are for, peace and loving their fellow men? But all you need, is one from each side, alone in a room and fighting and probably death, results.

    I think I've said this before, but for memory's sake - again-illy: Put a wall (not a concrete one), a wall made of the rest of the world's military forces, around the lot of them, Israel, Gaza, West bank. Supply weapons into the enclosed areas. And when they've finished, declare that man, King of the rubble. Then go home, let him rebuild the rubble, in what ever religious or philosophical manner he wishes to.
