4:30 Am on Silom

Rumors were rampant that a military crackdown against the red shirts was due at 4am.

Just after 4, troops rolled down Silom and took up position on the pedestrian bridge aiming their rifles at protesters.

Thousands of troops massed behind them on Silom road and stretched razor wire across the sidewalks...

And then it was over. Nothing happened.

By 7 am the morning office crowds were nervously speedwalking past the troops.

The crackdown has yet to happen.


  1. Thanks for the news. There's very little eyewitness reporting now. This is invaluable.
