Fighting them over there...

So we don't have to fight them ... in Thailand?

At least 28 bombs exploded Sunday in apparently coordinated attacks in parts of southern Thailand plagued by a Muslim insurgency, killing three people and wounding more than 50, the military said.

The bombings targeted hotels, karaoke bars, power grids and commercial sites in the country's southernmost provinces, the only parts of predominantly Buddhist Thailand with Muslim majorities. Two public schools were torched.
In other news:
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas defended his unity deal with Hamas in talks with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Sunday after U.S. and Israeli threats to shun a coalition government.
So, according to BushThink, a unity government in Iraq is good, but in Palestine it's bad.
Senior Palestinian officials said Abbas replied angrily to a U.S. official who warned him on Saturday that Washington would have no contact with unity government ministers, including Fatah members, if the Quartet's terms were not met.

``President Abbas ... shouted (at the official), saying: 'You are placing pressure on me. I have internal pressure -- the pressure is unbearable. The only alternative to this agreement is civil war','' one Palestinian official said.
Well, yeah. Isn't that the point? I do not for one minute believe that BushCo's goal in the Middle East is peace or stability.
