Regarding BikerJohn's possible return to the Kingdom....Thailand is gearing up for big expansion of 'open areas' starting October 1st....I think it would be prudent to see what changes are planned before trying to finalize your return details. As my wife is a Thai national and we have our home in Chiang Mai, we are certainly waiting for exact details of return requirements starting in October. The sooner, the better! Good luck on your return. Cheers, Busqueezo
Its been reported that some Generals and others ,no doubt, think that that military leader turn activist for the left, committed treason !
Even the traitor, Alexander Vindman said the general
got to go!
Trump inherited a mess from his former predecessors. Many of the career people from those predecessors who worked in Govt agencies, had their own agenda and it wasn't always to benefit Trump .People like the activist general(Milley) and Vindman were just 2 incidents of non elected bureaucrats having their take on how things are suppose to be in Govt. Unfortunately the Trump Admin had the most leaks of any administration, thanks to people like Milley!
The swamp,intel agencies,media CEO's and their cabal of reporters, GOP, Military ,Dems, Globalist elites were out to destroy the guy who was exposing them .
Which is why it was delayed for two weeks to nominally allow the locals to reach "herd immunity". (Which I realize is pie-in-the-sky propaganda.) I think we're all looking at this kind of backwards. Despite the rhetoric and testing demands and paperwork the goal of the sandboxes has been to see if the tourists would get infected by the locals, not the other way around. Since the majority of positive tests have occurred at the arrival or 5-day tests which would indicate (statistically, when compared to the day-12 results) a pre-flight infection, the test was a success.
What Phuket's self-isolation has proven as well is that local transmission doesn't care about such things. Cases have increased dramatically in Phuket over the past 10 weeks so, with or without the bridge, a Sandbox works for tourists, SHA+ works for helping to protect those tourists, and that using Sandboxes elsewhere - paperwork, tests, and all - remain a viable option for beginning to resurrect international travel to Thailand.
Unfortunately, I think it's also proven that the Vaccine Cocktail plan is worthless. Positive cases, hospitalizations, and deaths have remained at unsustainable high levels despite 81% of the island having their vaccines and over 90% being partially vaccinated.
