On August 19, the Thailand police released an image of the individual they suspect is behind the bombing in Bangkok just two days prior resulting in the death of 22 individuals. The bomb was set off in a major tourist site in a portion of Ratchaprasong junction in a part of downtown Bangkok. The weapon was a pipe bomb weighing in at three kilograms and triggered by a remote control. Just as over 20 people died, more than 100 people were injured in the blast. The bombing is being identified as the worst politically oriented act of violence in Thailand’s history. What has become quite evident in the passing days is the fact that the bomb was purposefully placed to achieve not only maximum visibility, but also maximum damage, and maximum deaths. Thailand does not often witness bombing, but as of recent there have been both grenade attacks and bombings in Bangkok, as a result of political expressions marking a rivalry and conflict between supports of Thaksin Shinawatra, the exiled former Prime Minister and the and militaristic elements and the aristocratic elite. Nevertheless, this latest bombing is unmatched in magnitude and the sinuous selection of the bombing site: a religious and sacred location: the Erawan Shrine. And the bomber remains at large. In the meantime, questions stir pertaining to motives and who, or what organization is behind the incident. The incident has left many holiday travelers terrified, and canceling a number of bookings as the bombing leaves an aftermath in its wake. Within 24 hours, travel agents were witnessing cancelations, and the start of trading on August 18, one full day after the incident, revealed a significant and dramatic decline in airport and hotel group stocks, which drops as much as 2.6 percent. What’s more, a drop in tourism will be a serious blow to the already less than strong Thailand economy. On August 18, the Thai baht dropped in value to an all time low in the last six years. This latest incident could very well have a terrible effect for businesses and tourism long-term.
