    After what they have done, paranoia comes with the territory.
  15. News: Re: Student Activists Arrested for Anti-Coup March in Bangkok

    One shouldn't need 'amnesty' for exercising an inherent right. Freedom of speech, freedom of association, and freedom of assembly are internationally recognized rights of all people.
  16. News: Re: Student Activists Arrested for Anti-Coup March in Bangkok

    "He said the charges pressed against the students were not "grave" but police must enforce the law to prevent the spread of movement."

    Anybody expect a different outcome?
  24. News: Re: Thai Junta Leader 'Inspired' by Abraham Lincoln

    Yeah, Lincoln was also responsible for plunging our nation into civil war. What, however, will be Prayuth's moral justification? It certainly can't be slavery. Perhaps too much freedom...?

  33. News: Re: Thai Junta Expands Military Power in New Order, Citing Article 44

    Citing an article in a draft charter that has yet to be ratified, eh? How does that work? Why is it so hard for them to admit that the only authority they have comes at the point of a gun?
