  1. News: Re: Court acquit Abhisit and Suthep of murder charges in red-shirt crackdown

    Arrested for distributing leaflets? Is this what the people of Thailand want? This is what they will get, and more, under a military dictatorship where they have no inalienable rights protected by...

    News: Re: 'No room for corruption'

    I'm still trying to figure out who the "good people" are? I guess they will just tell me that they are good and I'll blindly accept it as the truth. After all, the self-professed "good people"...

    What about the GT-200? That was either corruption or gross stupidity. That was an army deal, wasn't it?

    Passive resistance is the only way to get the junta to show its true colors. We got a taste in 2010. A wolf in sheep's clothing is still a wolf, and needs to be exposed as such.

    National Socialism, Thai style.
  12. News: Re: Military Junta Revives Patriotic Song in New Music Video

    "Since ousting the elected government on 22 May, the NCPO has coupled a harsh crackdown on dissidents with a soft-power PR blitz of free concerts, movie tickets, and FIFA World Cup telecasts."

    Yeah, not being constrained by laws or the need to build consensus sure makes it easy to get things done. Why isn't everyone else doing the same?

  15. News: Re: A 'Dark Day' for Thailand: Prayuth's Appointment as Prime Minister Comes Under Sc

    It promises to get much darker, once the "honeymoon period" is over. At least most of the opposition is smart enough to keep relatively quiet. I guess nobody wants to mysteriously disappear.

    News: Re: Prayuth elected as the 29th PM

    Yeah, "elected" by a hand-picked NLA in a roll call vote instead of by secret ballot. It doesn't get any more "transparent" than that. Oh, then there's the bit about there being no other candidates.
  20. News: Re: NCPO Chairman Wants More Applicants For Reform Council

    I don't know why such people are so hard to find. The only qualification seems to be to agree with everything the junta leaders say and vote accordingly. How hard can it be?
  21. News: Re: Prayuth To Be Voted PM 'On 21 August,' Legislators Say

  27. News Update: Re: Young Thai Red Shirt Activist Kritsuda Khunasen Has Vanished

    I guess the Junta is now making good on the threats they made when she as in custody. I hope she is granted asylum. I doubt she will survive long, if she is returned to Thailand.
