[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.
