    This reminds me of that incident involving this S.Korean (or was it Japanese) fella. Got kidnapped in Iraq, his govt poured in so many resources to get him back, and when he finally got rescued and came back to his own country, he indicated that he wanted to go back there again.

    Y'know, IMO, if a person can ask a question like "is it a good idea to go?", then I say he jolly well deserves to go.

    the thing is, he may "deserve" to go, but if he gets kidnapped or arrested or something happens, the goverment will probably expend resources to help him anyway.
    It is such a quiet thing to fall,
    But far more terrible is to admit it

    But if he ngeh-ngeh wants to go, who's going to stop him? What was TS hoping for when he even asked that question here in CS?

    The following were some photo from news on 2 September 2008:

    #1





    #2 Anti-government campaigners of the PAD drag a pro-government supporter during violent clashes in Bangkok. Thailand declares emergency in Bangkok after the clashes left one dead





    #3 Thai pro-government protestors wield a sling and a knife against anti-government demonstrators near the Government House, in Bangkok early morning Tuesday, Sept 2, 2008. Thailand's prime minister declared a state of emergency in the capital Tuesday after street fighting overnight between opponents and supporters of the government left one man dead and dozens of people injured.



    Good luck.
