It has been a long time… But today, ladies and gentlemen, we have a true Clown Of the Day : a winner.
The leader of the Sept 19 coup, Gen Sonthi Boonyaratkalin, insisted on Tuesday that the military takeover in 2006 had made Thai people happy.
Gen Sonthi was army commander-in-chief when he led commanders of the armed forces in the military coup which toppled prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra from power and then set up the Council for National Security. (Bangkok Post)
Sonthi is a nobody. A dull alleged general who sold his soul. Nothing less, nothing more. With his friend Surayud, another general so called the “Droppy I’m Happy Prime Minister“, they did huge damages to the country.
And I’m not speaking about Thaksin there.
Their pathetic actions and their inane government showed to the world the inanity of the thai ruling class. And when I say “inanity” I mean “low level”. And It didn’t happen last century… But 3 years ago. 2006.
Basic decency should command Sonthi to just shut his mouth.
