Ethnic cleansing : a village in the south… gets rid of its last buddhist family

The last Buddhist family in a village of this southern border province was attacked by Muslim insurgents Sunday, killing the mother and severely injuring the daughter.

The attack against the family in Moo 7 village of Tambon Laloh of Ruesoh district happened at 1:20 pm.

Police said the mother Ladda Sutthani, 72, owner of a clothes shop, was fatally shot and her daughter, Darunee Duangkaew, 39, was severely injured and sent to the provincial hospital.

Ladda, who was shot at her head and neck, died before she was sent to the hospital.

Police said the two were sitting inside the shop with two other relatives and the insurgents arrived on two motorcycles. They initially pretended to buy clothes but opened fire at the mother and daughter while the two relatives managed to flee.

The shop was attacked with a bomb two years ago, injuring Ladda. Darunee’s husband was killed about a year ago.

Ladda and Darunee’s family is the last Buddhist family in the village. (Nation)

Okay, it must be a fairly small village… But I think it’s a perfect example of what the terror campaign is really about : ethnic cleansing.

And it’s working.

The history shows clearly the plan. This family was attacked a first time 2 years ago… And a second time one year ago…. and today the rebels, insurgents, terrorists, mafias, freedom fighters, muslims fanatics (whatever you wish to call them) have successfully finished the job.

    You know what, I, and I believe other Thais too, are very depressed hearing similar tragedy after tragedies.
    – One day you heard of Thai Police crackdown on PAD and a PAD girl was killed.
    – 4 PAD protesters lost their feet by grenade attack in the same clash.
    – Thai soldiers trying to protect our sovereignty lost their legs while exchanging fires with the Cambodians.
    – Innocent people and soldiers in the south were killed like falling leaves. I believe more to come.

    Let alone the risk of long term political instability and the global crisis impact.

    So depressing indeed.

    Just think, if the PAD are successful in Bangkok and install their pseudo-dictatorship government in yellow shirts, then Thailand will be controlled by terrorists in the South and terrorists in the North. Time to leave I think.

    Did you imply that letting convicted Thaksin rule the country instead should be an alternative? Just be straightforward of your position, okay?

    That everyone who disagrees with PAD’s antidemocratic agenda would automatically be a supporter of Thaksin is just your very own implication and has nothing to do with reality.

    Those so-called undecided have made decision. If PAD is anti-democratic, what do you think about the opposite side?

    I am much influenced by Canadian and Australian democracies. Elections cannot tell that a country has achieved democratic idealism, if they are fraudulent.

    “If PAD is anti-democratic, what do you think about the opposite side?”

    Do you want to imply that PAD is actually a righteous champion of democracy? Well, if PAD is democratic than Thaksin is a beneficent saint who delivered joy and prosperity to Thailand and the world. 😀

    But you made the same mistake again: the opposite side of PAD is not pro-Thaksin. Of course every Thaksin supporter is against PAD, but not everybody who is against PAD is a Thaksin supporter. Got it?

    “Elections cannot tell that a country has achieved democratic idealism, if they are fraudulent.”

    True. But you can tell for sure that a country without universal suffrage has not even come close to a form of government that might be called a democracy. If your concern is fraudulent elections you won’t get improvements by tempering with the “election” part. You need to address the “fraudulent” part. Now PAD acts like a doctor who wants to cure a patient suffering from cancer by shooting him. Yes, the cancer will be stopped, too. But the patient would still be dead.

    Tell me what if there is no PAD or any equivalent in Thailand’s political landscape now.

    Everybody stays home, sitting in a big couch watching TV, taking it easy, letting the society come what may…….

    I think I made the right decision to have secured a second citizenship. I don’t want to rear my future children in such “Srithanonchai” environment.

    Sorry, ThaiCrisis. This may be off the topic. Like Thaksin, Ex-Proxy PM Samak has been allowed to leave Thailand to “receive cancer treatment” in the U.S. His departure from Suvarnabhumi Airport last night was low key.

    So deals have been worked out behind the scene. Thailand’s prisons are only built to jail the poor. The privileged rich and powerful are always exempted from punishment.

    PAD will finally be weeded out, along with Thailand’s hope for human right and true democracy.

Coup, Economic slowdown, Terror In the South... The situation is worsening in Thailand. Bumpy road like often before.

The key to understand the present turmoil is the inevitable... succession of King Bhumibol.
