Bangkok Post: Second Iranian bomber captured in Bangkok

http://www.bangkokpost.com/news/local/279816/iranian-injured-in-bangkok-bombs






Three explosions rocked Sukhumvit 71 in Bangkok on Tuesday afternoon, badly injuring an Iranian man who lost both his legs.
Another man was arrested at Suvarnabhumi airport after police discovered explosive materials in a house rented by three Iranians in Soi Pridiphanomyong 31.

Four other people were injured in the blasts.Government spokeswoman Thitima Chaisaeng said police reported the house was being used to make bombs and had uncovered a cache of C4 explosives and remote control detonating devices.She said a bomb went off inside the rented house and two of the three men fled.

The third man, identified as Saeid Moradi, followed and tried to hail a taxi, which refused to stop. Police said he threw a bomb at the taxi, injuring the driver, and ran off. He then was spotted by police and threw a third bomb at them, but it bounced off a tree and blew his legs off. He was rushed to Kluaynamthai Hospital.

4. Its already being dicussed by the media

Their amateurish attemps to harm amyone other than themselves indicate this is hardly state sponsored terrorism.

5. Incompetence does not preclude Iranian involvement

 

It is unlikely that the latest group of Bangkok-bound terrorists (this is just the latest group) are members of Quds. However, with the Lebanese terrorists that had ties to Hezbollah, affiliation with Hezbollah is a very real possiblity with this group.

6. They did have C4 explosive, apparently

If that bit of the report is correct, it points to something more than 'amateurs'.

Anyway, ask any right winger and they'll tell you that the state is more incompetent than the private or voluntary sector anyway

7. This is almost as implausible as the Mexican gangsta plot.

When did Iran start hiring such incredibly incompetent agents? Something smells fishy in Bangkok.

10. Taxi

He threw a bomb at a taxi too. Who does that? Way to stay under the radar. I don't think a taxi refusing to stop merits more than maybe a middle finger salute.
