Threat Names Thailand as Iraq Target 'After Spain'
STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Thailand's embassy in Sweden has received a letter threatening the Southeast Asian country with attacks like those on Spain in retaliation for sending troops to Iraq (news - web sites), Thai and Swedish officials said on Wednesday.


"Since Thailand has cooperated with U.S.A., the Satan's states, and have interfered in the concern of Iraq by sending 443 Thai soldiers to the occupied land, we have our duty to inform you that Thailand is one of our targets after Spain," reads the letter, in ungrammatical English and dated March 31

(snip)

Thailand has about 440 medical and engineering troops in the southern Iraqi city of Kerbala, 60 miles south of Baghdad, but the Thai Foreign Ministry said that they were not involved in military operations.


In Bangkok, Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra told reporters Thai troops were only in Iraq for humanitarian reasons.


I really hope there is not a bombing in Thailand. :(

Who knows?
