Better than bombs




Early last december the Thai government dropped millions of paper origami birds, containing peace messages written by ordinary Thais, over the countries Muslim South.
This was a response by the Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra after recent fighting between local muslims and Government forces had resulted in the deaths of hundreds. A slick political stunt by Thaksin which probably went down well with most of the Thai people. However Amir Taheri at the Arab View wasn't impressed. More on this at indybay.org

Amir Taheri is a neo-con, in the stable of neo-con stars over at Eleana Benador's (incl: Perle, Krauthammer, Ledeen, Mylorie, Pipes and a bevy of Middle Eastern expats).
