Free shooting range : Abhisit is satisfied and wows to continue the repression

[snipers, from the thai army not from hypothetical “men in black” group, shooting at protesters… no mysterious “third hand” here…]

The gruesome death toll counter increases… Officially, 25 deads (all civilians, official read here), and 215wounded…

Areas of Bangkok have been turned into “live firing zones”. The army even posted some signs.

Meanwhile the monstruous and orwellian “Centre for Resolution of Emergency Situation” continues to publish grotesque statements, like a pathetic albeit zealous child of Joseph Goebbels.

The Centre for Resolution of the Emergency Situation reported that there were four factors contributing to deaths and injuries: infighting among red-shirt guards; armed militants hidden among protesters; protesters were attacked by those unhappy with the movement; some casualties had resulted from troops defending themselves. (Nation)

They forgot a fifth factor : extraterrestrial lifeforms shooting at protesters ! Why they didn’t think about it ? All hell broke loose as far as common sense and decency are concerned.

And the pathetic spokesman, colonel Sansern, continues to lie, over and over again.

The army will use weapons only with armed groups and terrorists, Center for the Resolution of Emergency Situation’s spokesman Col Sansern Kaewkamnerd said Sunday.

The army will never use weapons with innocent people. (Nation)

And meanwhile, Abhisit… feels good in his new symbolic military uniform. He’s satisfied. And he wows to continue the repression.

Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva last night defended the government’s protest-containment policy, arguing it was the best way to address Bangkok’s security situation.

The premier insisted there would be no turning back, although Natthawut Saikua, one of the protest leaders, asked for an immediate cease-fire and a return to the negotiating table. (Nation)

It smells… “mission accomplished”.

Well… we all know what usually follows such statement…

Abhisit has never been legitimate. But today, he lost everything else : credibility, humanity.

And he joined the hall of fame of thai criminals… full of inane generals, crazy soldiers, fanatics in military fatigues, dirty politicians, corrupted officials.

With his legendary smile on his face.

History will judge him.

    Let’s hope the Thai future is better than it’s history, because if the historical trend continues, Abhisit will be rewarded with a seat on the Privy Council – he’s proven his qualifications for such a position in spades over the last few days!

    Its disgraceful, murderous. Surely nobody can believe the fictions that Abhisit has peddled any more. TeakDoor has athread where the dead savage hand of a certain woman is behind this making war on the Thai people.

    I can quite believe it, and there are many Thais out there who believe it as well.

    All these so-called ‘government’ people must go to jail for a very, very long time.

    Knock the house down, evict all the parasites, throw them out in the street. Preferably in a different country, Thailand has no use for these criminals.

    There must be a reckoning, this is way beyond the pale.

    “life shooting area”
    “dismantaling the Demonstration”
    I think i am crazy,but
    Dont they realize that this is “Thais vs Thais”,Innocents vs Innocents (Phrai vs soldiers)
    Both sides genuinely trying for “power/democracy/freedom/voice”
    Both sides had much shown restrains and eaten humble pies
    Both sides have trump cards
    Government: the firepower, the army, the police black shirts, yellow and rainbow shirts
    The demonstrators: have people, watermellons.black shirts
    If only one side, or their proxies,just a few, show a little more enthusiasm…..THE END
    So MUCH for so little distrust and a few months of wait for election.
    Where are their Friends, the USA, the United Nation, the Asians,the friends of Thais, the moderates the Patriots,and……
    Yes, I must be crazy, too simplistic, too naive.
    but for a hundred humans more to stay alive, I would choose to stay in the Cuckoo’s Nest.

    “Would you kill the BIG GUY” : bbc programme
    “Yes, I would.” a definative answer from a little girl in the programme

    How I wish there is such “little girl” (or a few of them) in Thailand who would kill a few of the BIG GUYS of Thailand and keep alive innocent guys,the Farmers, the workers , the soldiers, the police, the watermelons.

    Then,
    What about DEMOCRACY?
    The sand dyke hole unplugged, the water has flowed, the surging water for the Phrai will flow no matter what….
    From now,Thailand politics will change from now with or without Thaksin, redshirts,yellow shirts, black shirts or Abhisit.
    A Pity…no chance of having the little girl; tens/hundreds/thousands more “Little Guys” will die.

    Not the answer. The answer is:

    1. confiscate all the wealth.
    2. Turn the palaces into museums for the better education of Thais.

    3. Turn the ‘big guy’ and his family out into the street with a warning to all people not to support and succour.

    This will cause shame and loss of face worse than dying.

    The people who must face a firing squad are Abhisit, Suthep, Sanserm, Panithan, Chidchob (both of them), Barnharn and Prem. Then ths snipers (the Nuremburg defence is not valid). Then start on the 20 families.

    The only way this is not going to come back is to clean house. Now. The moment is right now.

    Ferocious? Yes but not as ferocious as turning the army on its head and ordering it to kill unarmed civilians. War has already been declared by the government.

    Anupong: now is the time for the coup for the reds. Save your own life and reputation, do it now.

    With this picture Abhisit has lost his face in the eyes of the rest of the world.

  7. 7 fall 16 May 2010 at 3:32 pm

    Very typical that Thai medias do not condemn these “snipers” nor an advancing line of soldiers.
    But neither did Burma medias shown pictures of soldiers shooting civilians either…

    It’s the end game. Abhisit is banking on full scale crackdown. Shoot all the RED guards and probably switch to barrages of tear gas on the main RED crowd to show compliance with international standard.
    Even if all else fail, there would still be an amnesty card couple with PAD crowd as a final get away.

    @Bedwyr

    …evict all the parasites, throw them out in the street. Preferably in a different country, Thailand has no use for these criminals.

    It’s depends on who won. History is written by the victors.

  8. 8 John 16 May 2010 at 5:27 pm

    Actually, to me this looks like a crime against humanity.
    Maybe someone can find out if this is true.
    If I am right then Abhisit or others involved might get arrested if they ever happen to visit the US or Europe.

    The Reds must win this. If they do not Thailand will become another Burma and its back to the good ole stone age.

    The Reds must win.

    You are a gentle-man,for me,I rather ‘kill them dead’, at least politically, than hear them groan.Abhisit for example, he is already politically dead, the yellow shirts call him yellow; the erection comm says he cant stand for election; and the red shirts already make him see much blood.
    But then, there is no tough little girl(in black shirt) to ‘kill them dead’

  11. 11 Pricilla 16 May 2010 at 6:42 pm

    Well they have been pumping the propaganda, terrorists wanting to overthrow the monarchy etc, suspect many Thais will believe it. But as in all these scenarios we have Abbhisit hiding in an army barracks and all the Shinawats were flown out before hand. The heroes in charge leading from the rear.

    Feel for the cannon fodder being gunned down, probably are the true believers still not realizing they were pawns in the great game. The Thai establishment is renowned for gunning down its citizens so no surprise here, whats more they will all sleep well to boot.

  12. 12 George 16 May 2010 at 7:28 pm

    while it is not often mentioned, most of the people in charge of the present government and military forces (ie., the top generals) and most of the people supporting the Red Shirt “cleansing” operation (ie, the Bangkok PAD/Yellow/Hi-So crowd) are Chinese Thai while most of the people supporting the Red Shirt movement and who are getting shot are Isan Thai……

  13. 13 Anon 16 May 2010 at 9:41 pm

    If only there were a solution:
    If only there were a man, a man with such influence, such power, who holds endless amounts or respect by all parties.
    If only he could assemble all the ‘shirts’ into one room and force a resolution.
    If only such a man had experience at handling this exact same situation before.
    If only this man could step up to save possibly hundreds of lives and billions of baht of lost income for Thailand.

    If only…

    Too bad this man does not exist.

    @Bedwyr:

    Unfotunately the Chakri Dynastie is an inheritance Monarchy. The very bad news is that in this case some of them will surely come back maybe decades later and try to get back what he things belongs to him.

    History has shown the only way to prevent this by the way the handled Romanow Dynastie. Without wiping out the complete family including all the children and grand children you can be 100% sure that they would have tried to come back many time and succeded without a doubt twice (during the Chruschtschow Area and in the 1989 collapse of the soviet union)

    So i’m in favour of ikxora and the old oracle that predictated that there will never be a tenth Chakri King.

    Bedwyr, having heard your recipe for peace and harmony in Thailand, I’m going to take a wild guess and surmise that you aren’t buddhist. (And if you are, I humbly suggest you might consider a refresher course)

  16. 16 koko 17 May 2010 at 12:34 am

    before the pictures came out, the government had already announced publicly of deploying snipers in the area to neutralize armed terrorists.
    now, there are reports of a few protesters (maybe around 3 – 5?) having been shot in head by what looks like the work of snipers. If that is really the case and was carried out by army snipers, what motive does the army have to do this? how does it benefit the army/government?

    it seems the result of these killings more benefit for third hands or red themselves who want to further enrage the reds to go create more mayhem and at the same time also tarnish army/gov image.

    That is is a smirk not a smile.

  18. 18 ThaiCrisis 17 May 2010 at 3:08 am

    Enough of this circus about the “third hand”… the “invisible hand”… It’s a pathetic (and tragic) joke.

    Right now, you see thai soldiers, with the uniform of the the thai army (you remember, the mother and guard of the proud and great thai Nation ?) shooting their thai fellow citizen like dogs.

    Correct, I am not. Neither am I a Hindu, Moslem, nor Jewish. I am not a Geisha girl either, whoich would be just as relevant.

    I have no idea why you would hold Buddhism up as any sort of role model in this, There are 50 million buddhists in Thailand and they have all managed to fuck it up very nicely thank you.

    Perhaps you should be rather embarrassed about being a Buddhist yourself…

  20. 20 Mr. SAD 17 May 2010 at 11:01 pm

    (Democide) = Democide is death by government relating to genocides. Democides are not the elimination of entire cultural groups, but rather groups within the country that the government feels they need to be eradicated for political reasons and future threats.

    Genocide is the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, political, or national group.

    Reading some recent history about Thailand’s (Democratic) political issues reminds me of a bunch of unsupervised children that will never have the ability to govern themselves peacefully.

Thailand Crisis

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

But this time, it's different.

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