Foreign intelligence source told this blog that Cambodian has reinforced a disputed Thai Cambodian track with about 200 crack special force who are ordered to dispel any intruders into the disputed rack. This adds to the current 500 Cambodian police that are already at the disputed site.
The source also said the Cambodian army, that earlier said they were ready to throw 10,000 battle hardened troops against the Thai army, have also called its military to be ready for potential war with Thailand.
“I want to warn the Yellow Shirt not to enter the disputed area because the Cambodians have order to fire on any intruders and that will mean we will have to go in and rescue the Yellow Shirt and that can mean a war between the two countries. And what is the objective with war but an a peace process at the end, and third countries can become involved,” said the Thai army spokesman.
Foreign intelligence source said currently, there is no plans by the Thai government to declare an emergency decree on the area to control the Yellow Shirt who plans a major gathering at the disputed track tomorrow, on the same day that the Red Shirt protest in Bangkok have been met with an emergency decree.
The source said currently 300 Yellow Shirt and about 100 Yellow Shirt guard, have occupied several structures, mainly cultural reserves offices, belonging to the Thai government for a forward base that is only about 150 meters from the disputed track.
The Yellow Shirt have held several mass rally in E-Sarn, the region that the disputed track is located, and drew about 5,000-7,000 at each rally. The source said the numbers of Yellow Shirt heading to the disputed track tomorrow, could be anywhere from 3,000 to 5,000.
The Yellow Shirt is a violent prone right wing nationalistic group of protesters that have occupied the government house and the Thai airport-thus have demonstrated little respect for law and order. The current government is considered close to the Yellow Shirt and have been slowed in prosecuting the Yellow Shirt for its occupying activities.
