This is the view of the from the corner of Rajadamri and Pethchaburi Roads.

This first picture is looking back toward Central World. The Red Shirts built a barrier right in front of the bridge over the Klong. If the government troops wanted to storm the encampment, there is no other way around. They would have to go right through this barricade.

This is the view looking west toward Pantip Plaza.

And this is the view north up Ratchaprarop Road.

This is last barricade before the government lines — viewed from the Red Shirt side.

The Red Shirts climbed up on the tires and peered over at the army troops.

Notice the piles of rocks (ammunition) the Red Shirts collected and cached right behind the barricade.

This is the kill zone in front of the barricade.

The government troops at some point advanced up to the red traffic barriers just out of stone throwing range.

Can you imagine what would have happened if soldiers were massed behind the red barriers prior to an assault and the demonstrators had a couple of claymores set up in front of barricade and detonated them at the appropriate moment?

Notice all the rocks strewn on the pavement. These must have been thrown by the Red Shirts at the troops taking cover behind the red barriers.

Here is a view of the barrier from the front.

The garbage bags make it virtually impossible for soldiers on foot to climb over the barricade— especially when Red Shirts are behind it lobbing heavy stones at them.

Here is another view of the barricade farther down the street as the soldiers would have seen it.

And here is the view right before the government lines— protected from Red Shirt assault with barbed wire.

You can still see government troops down the street and I turned back here.

The barbed wire was still up and there was no way through.
