Yet it was the US who used extreme violence in 2003 to invade and topple the government in Iraq predicated on a deliberate lie and leading to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis along with thousands of America's own soldiers. To claim somehow the US is capable of that, but "above" using lesser violence to coerce other nations around the globe is in fact incredibly absurd.
The US destroys entire nations around the globe. It is not above sponsoring relatively minor terrorism to coerce a nation.
Investigations will begin, but Bangkok is unlikely to directly implicate Thaksin or his proxies, no less his sponsors. The goal of the string of bombings is to heighten tensions and deepen divisions between the Thai public and what remains of Thaksin's support base. Time is on Bangkok's side. As it rises alongside China and the rest of Eurasia, US influence wanes. While the US is still an incredibly dangerous and destructive force around the globe its ability to influence the path of global development has atrophied.
As public awareness grows of Washington's true intentions and methods and more specifically its abuses and crimes, further violence carried out by it or its proxies will only accelerate global backlash against it and its "international order," in favor of a multipolar world where cooperation and national sovereignty hold primacy over coercion and regime change.
