Bangkok’s $54 Plot

Jason Ditz, February 21, 2012

Officials are still hard at work trying to blame the Iranian government for it, but revelations about the Bangkok bombing plot show an extremely cheap effort to blow something up, which hinged entirely on the ability to hail a cab in the Thai capital.

The surveillance photo of Saeid Moradi shows him holding two portable radios, which apparently cost $27 each and were chock full of ball bearings.

Moradi wandered into the streets, determined to launch whatever sort of attack he was planning to launch, and that’s where the whole thing falls apart. Moradi fails to hail a cab and, enraged, he throws one of the bombs at a cab that didn’t stop, injuring four.

The “plot” appears to share much in common with the Saudi envoy assassination scheme in its implausible amateurishness. As it is hard to imagine Iran asking somebody’s used car salesman cousin if he knows any drug cartels, it is similarly difficult to believe a highly coordinated terror plot didn’t involve even a consideration for how the attacker was going to get from point A to point B while brandishing his “on-the-cheap” bombs in his bare hands.

  1. but the facts don’t matter. the assassination plot, the
    bomb plot…..they’ll be repeated endlessly. not that that’s
    really needed…..we’re talkin’ about iran. them dudes is
    crazy! don’t you know their nutty president wants to wipe
    israel………

  2. Not to mention waving an Iranian passport and Iranian rials. Still, the results of the police interview when he recovers from medical treatment should be very interesting. The MSM will be racing to publish that.

  3. Did the radios contains at least explosives?

  4. Have to admit that this kind of bumbling bunglers is well below the historical standard of Mossad, assuming it is Mossad and not Avigdor Lieberman running a false flag on his own – and on the cheap. Even the US, who I have not ruled out as running this false flag, tends to rely on reliable people to do their dirty deeds. Doesn't make sense. And I'm pretty confident it isn't the Iranians – not that they aren't capable or motivated but the Persians have been playing at palace intrigue for centuries – this is well below their grade level.

  5. maybe this sort of operation has been outsourced to the 3rd shift minor faction jundallah guys.

  6. haha,

    that says it all. the only thing missing was a confession letter signed by ahmadinejad!!

    how pathetic is this attempt to frame Iran using MEK or probably Pakistani al qaeda….

    Mossad thinks this is the 1980's and people are ignorant to their plots

  7. Recall the "Habbush letter"? http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2008-08-0

    How about the Zawahri/Zarqawi letter that became the subject of a Reuters headline "US Cannot Explain Suspicious Zawahri Letter Passage"? Strangely–or maybe not so much anymore–it looks like that Reuters story has been completely memory-holed. The only links I found referencing that headline point to AW, which links to it at Yahoo! News. But the story itself has since been virtually "unexisted" by the minions of the global corporate-government-media Ministry of Truth.

  8. These false flags are getting really sloppy. What's the matter with these guys. As an American citizen and taxpayer in good standing I demand that the false flags at least appear more genuine. This is making me ashamed to be an American.

    I mean, 9/11 was pretty impressive, the 7/7 attacks had some major holes but still pretty good, but it's been going downhill from there. Who's in charge here?

  9. [...] to flee the scene and when one tried to hail a cab he apparently got angry and hurled his two bombs worth $54 in total at the cab. They were caught by Thai police, who don’t seem to think it was a terror [...]

  10. This is why the racism implicit in Zionism is so pernicious; in the end you come to believe you are superior to everyone else and start doing stupid things. Like, for instance, Adolph Hitler declaring war on the US. Mossad like the IDF might have been something a few years ago, forty five or so years of occupation have gutted them.
