    Not at all wise and considering you are a Singaporean... u might be the one getting lynched. Don't forget the whole Thaksin saga started from Singapore.....

    stay out of politics, local or foreign. being physically there is risk itself.

    Take all precaution, and try not to end up in a fracas. But it's your own decision, and for you to decide.

    If you think it's worth the risk, then go ahead. Thai protests against the PPP are considered tame, relative to others like the anti-globalisation protests in recent times.

    Go for it.

    If nothing happens to you, at least you'll get shots that few other S'poreans would have. If something happens to you, then at least we'll get an interesting story to read on TNP.

    Either way, it's win-win.

    dun think your insurance will cover since u wrote it here... so dun bother buying a travel insurance if you're going...

    a moment of trigger happy, might result in a lifetime of regret...

    Lets see if the situation gets better after Samak steps down. Thailand will probably remain in the state of emergency till a new PM gets elected. Still some violence going on in BKK today according to some of my Thai friends.

    Have shots nobody else in Sg has, then can post to "Reportage and Sports" section of CS, very cool. Hit count sure very high one.

    But BKK not enough kick, lah. Why not try Iraq or Pakistan/Afghanistan border?

    why not try somalia/sudan/any warring nation in the world? while i understand why the TS wants to shoot the riots (i hope he's going for the reasons i assumed), think of your family if anything were to happen to you. not that you're gonna get lynched there BECAUSE you're singaporean, but what if someone just doesn't like you taking pictures of them there, or you get caught up in a riot, etc.

    just my 2 cents
    It is such a quiet thing to fall,
    But far more terrible is to admit it
