    » Re: ''Bombers 'part of terror group','' (BP, Feb 16). Serious questions need to be asked about the suitability of Wichean Potephosree as secretary-general of the National Security Council. The man is obviously in a state of total denial of the realities on the ground.

    Terror probe must carry on

    News, Published on 28/02/2012

    » The detention of three more Iranian citizens on Sunday is a stark reminder that the case of the Valentine's Day blasts still has a lot of loose ends. The police deserve far more support than they are getting from the government. Security forces must continue to pursue the details of this serious threat to national security. Trying to forget the explosions in this apparent terrorism case would open the country to far greater problems, than just a brief fear that tourists might stay away.

    The felling truth

    News, Published on 01/03/2012

    » What a week it has been! The Bangkok Post had two front-page stories on the floods and deforestation (Feb 25: ''King says greed a factor in floods''; Feb 28: ''Govt to spend B3bn on forest restoration''). Sandwiched between the two was an opinion piece about ''big fish'' being unable to see the forests for the trees. The King was quoted as saying, ''The problems stem from those who are greedy. The blame lies with some civil servants who are greedy and crave money.''

    Confront this burning issue

    News, Published on 03/03/2012

    » Tourists aboard a flight to Lampang last weekend were surprised when the control tower ordered their plane to circle the airport for an hour because visibility was below the safe 1,000-metre minimum required for landing. They had not realised the air quality was so bad. But the delay merely drew sighs from other passengers living in the northern city. They knew exactly what the trouble was. The choking haze caused each year by the burn-off of crop residue was back, blanketing the North and defying attempts by the authorities to prevent it.

    News, Published on 03/03/2012

    » It's a case of too little too late...and a continued front of incompetence. Villages, inner-city homes, wats and rice fields are still burning on a daily basis in Chiang Mai.

    Haze is poor man's revenge

    News, Published on 04/03/2012

    » The fires which are causing bad air quality in the North are in effect a poor man's revenge on us all. Poor farmers burn their fields since they can't afford any other method of weeding. Hill tribe people burn the common forest because it generates mushrooms after the first rains, which apparently earn them 2,000 baht a day at markets.
