Here they are. Who ? The Blue Shirts ! It’s new. It’s fresh. It’s the new spring trend. It’s designed.
The corrupted thai press and government present them as “local people” from Pattaya, who want to defend the Asean summit and foreign leaders. A bunch of good citizens ! 😉
Thugs versus thugs (read the article on TJTS)
Violence occured saturday morning… People were wounded… The Red Shirts outnumbered the Blue Shirts… And they stormed the press center. Asean summit was canceled.
Abhisit is weak. And he’s a coward. He doesn’t want to use the police or the army because he’s such a “democracy lover”… He has an image to preserve… A public to entertain like a bad actor.
So instead the government seems to rely on a very old tactic to do the dirty job : the third party (Thailand is the land of third party).
It’s convenient to hide behind.
Furthermore, Abhisit like a little boy wanted to save face with the Asean Summit… He repeated “no problem, everything is normal” (like last week in London), the summit will take place…
Too bad… Summit canceled. Thailand is losing face. And Abhisit is already way beyond that point…
The Chinese prime minister, New Zealand prime minister, Japanese prime minister and South Korean president could not leave their hotels to attend the Asean plus dialogue partners summit. The hotels were blocked by the red-shirted protesters. (Nation)
Sources said a decision has been made to postpone the summit to a later date, in effect cancelling it.
PM’s Office Minister Satit Wongnongtoey said the government might be forced to “raise the level of law enforcement”. An announcement is on the way, he said. (Nation)
The Blue Shirts Thugs are obviously not enough.
So Abhisit has declared the state of emergency in Chonburi. (Nation)
Prime Minister Abhisit announced on TV that the government announced state of emergency in Pattaya and Chon Buri following the raid of the summit venue.
Abhisit said Deputy Prime Minister Suthep Thaugsuban was assigned to enforce the emergency law to control the situation.
He said the government had made sure that all Asean leaders and other foreign leaders would leave the country safely.
And 6 hours later… Abhisit lifts the state of emergency. 😉
I think he’s looking for an article into the Guinness Book of Records… Category “non sense” or “ridicule” or “fickleness”.
Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said the government decided to lift the emergency law in Pattaya after all leaders of the Asean Summit left the country safely.
The decision came after the law is imposed six hours ago after the red shirted protesters broke into the press hall of the Asean Summit in Pattaya.
Speaking in a press conference at the press centre in Pattaya at about 7.15pm. The laws were imposed 1.30pm. (Nation)
