Good start for 2010 : “the thai submarine will safeguard fisheries, exports, tourism and will enlarge our penis”

The navy is looking into the feasibility of buying submarines for military and economic security reasons, navy chief Kamthorn Pumhirun says.

A feasibility committee has been set up to study submarine technology.

The navy will push for the purchase of the submarines, priced at 20 billion baht each, when there is enough money available. (Bangkok Post)

The Submarine Saga is an old one. The government spent already money on this hilarious project.

The navy chief said neighbouring Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Vietnam all had ordered submarines from Russia.

The submarines, he insisted, could serve many purposes and were a necessity. […]

Adm Kamthorn said the submarines would help strengthen the economy. They would help safeguard the country’s natural resources, fisheries, oil exploration, export cargoes and tourism.

Sure. No doubt.

And a thai submarine would also solve the global warming problem, cure cancer and would of course increase penis size. 😉

Kamthorn is nothing more than a clown in uniform.

No problem. Everybody should be free to ridicule itself (and ridicule doesn’t kill unfortunately). But he’s an expensive clown. A parasite sucking out money for grotesque projects (and a few friends pockets)… at the expense of the thai people.

And like BP wrote, the King criticized this stupid idea… in 2008… So, do we have to understand that the navy chief does not care about the King’s opinion ?

    The navy chief obviously didn´t attend the lessons about submarines at the naval academy. The Gulf of Thailand´s water is to shallow for submarine operations. So this will be money in the ocean, but I´m sure the money could be put in other gulfs.

    Mwa ha ha ha, LOL, ROFL.

    As you say, it also increase penis size and allow those Adm to have money for more consorts.

    Not to be outdone, the Commander of the Royal Thai Air Force, Air Chief Marshal Lunee Madasahatta Wattatit, is rumoured to be seeking 10 trillion baht for the purchase of two surplus N1 Russian moon rockets, one to get there and the other for coming back. “The rockets have never been used, but they do need a bit of a tidy-up,“ he admitted. Planning is already well-advanced for the establishment of rice paddies in the Mare Fecunditatis South, once it has been desalinated. “Green cheese makes an excellent growing medium,” says Dr. Gonbatts Longago, visiting professor of Lunar Horticulture at Nuttiman University. Air Chief Marshal Lunee explained that, whereas the peacetime role of Thai moon men was important, the planned observatory in the recently discovered Mare Kasit will allow the Kingdom to keep eyes on Thaksin wherever he goes and is vital to national security.

    What a stupid idea, all they want is a kick-back from suppler. I went to Costa Rica last January, they do not have armforce, instead they spend the $ on education & medicare for their people. We should send all these Jar-Heads to learn how to spend tax payers $ in Costa Rica.

    Thailand does not need submarines, nor even one. This clown is only trying to increase his empire (and therefore his face), and get access to a huge budget so he can steal from the Thai people he claims to want to defend.

    Seems like an expensive way of buying him some bragging rights, because that’s about all it is.

    Thailand is on the verge of collapse into anarchy, the civil war I predicted a year ago is likely to happen this year, Thaksin is saddling up his horse for the journey home, and this clown is fiddling while Rome burns.

    Almost beggars belief.


    Don’t send them to Costa Rica to learn, they are unable to learn or reason. Send them there to live. In fact send them anywhere to live. Anywhere else that is.

    “A feasibility committee has been set up to study submarine technology.”

    The committees preliminary report posted surprise that these ships are actually meant to go under the water, and really couldn’t see much point in that. However they firmly quashed doubts about shallow waters saying that they could in that case drive them on the surface where they would be unlikely to run into anything. This would also be better for recruitment as it appeared Thai sailors really preferred
    to be on top of the water. The full report will follow…

    We are impatient to read the “full report”.

    This should keep all the sailors happy 🙂


    The sailor rubber ducky is the perfect solution when you need a rubber ducky with style. The sailor duck is great for ducky river races and for use as ducky party favors or decorations! Should also save the nation a fortune instead of buying submarine whilst encouraging new ways of scamming tourists:

    Never been in charge of a duck race fundraiser before?
    Don’t worry, it’s easy. Just “sell” each ducky at a set price, let the duckies race their way to the finish line, and give the “owners” of the first duck (or first few) a prize.

    Never been in charge of the duck pond game before?
    Don’t worry, it’s even easier than a duckie river race. Just number each duck and place it in the pond. Have your guests select a ducky and win the prize that corresponds to the number.

    And just think of the new form of excitement at the body/soapy massage parlors!

    Read on BP:
    where HM The King even suggested subs a waste of time for Thailand. Interesting that his opinion no longer carries weight with the Navy as pushing for them again. But as BP said this is perhaps another topic in itself.

    Apichart: No unrest or coup this year


    THAILAND’S cabinet on Tuesday approved a US$7.5 million (S$10.5 million) budget for the army to buy new riot equipment, in anticipation of fresh anti-government protests in the turbulent kingdom.

    It is undeniable that the king is wise and benevolent and his principles well observed. At any rate, does it mean that whatever he says is always correct and can’t even be constructively and academically argued? Back in December 2005, the king said: “If the King can do no wrong, it is akin to looking down upon him because the King is not being treated as a human being. But the King can do wrong.”
