world on fire

Reading articles about the situation in Thailand really upsets me. 

"Parts of downtown Bangkok have been reduced to battlegrounds on Wednesday as retreating “Red Shirt” protesters set buildings ablaze after the arrest of at least seven of their leaders."

The massive Central World mall — Southeast Asia’s second biggest departmental store — has been destroyed by fire. 

Bangkok-based writer Tori Truslow tweeted, “I just can’t believe this is happening. This shining city I grew up with. In flames. I’m crying.”- Channelnewsasia.com

What are these people thinking?
I found videos on the attacks and the sick part about it isn't the fire burning down the building but the people clapping after the burnout! o_O

I was there just this February and I remember spending the holiday with my parents in the city of Bangkok.  All was great, shopping was fun, the food and sightseeing was an experience that enticed people to come back for more. 

Seeing it in ruins saddens many people, especially those with loved ones there.  
It's a beautiful place, I hope there's hope for peace.
