After the grotesque “Road Map” blew off… reality is coming back with a vengeance.
The first round was on april 10 (26 deads). The second round started today with a string of events.
–shooting and incidents at Lumpini : at least 1 dead, 10 wounded
-target assassination (attempt) of Seh Daeng (the “military” red leader). He was shot in the head by a snipper at Rajprasong tonight (CNN video here).
I guess it’s going to be difficult this time to accuse him of being the leader of the “men in black”, the famous “terrorists” who shot at protesters last month… I’m sure we can trust Abhisit to find a decent and logic explanation….
–state of emergency extended to 15 provinces (while the security apparatus crushes the protesters in Bangkok, it’s important to prevent their “komrades” based up country to react)
-the US and the UK close their embassies.
-… foreign journalist reports more shooting tonight…
Overall, It could be the “final” round…
Red as blood.
But the important point is to think about the “rule of law”, the “democracy” etc. The key words used over and over again by the government. And to trust the orwellian “Centre for Resolution of Emergency Situation”.
Educated in the UK, Abhisit was a very good learner… “Road map”, Orwell, the Newspeak, thoughtcrime, the Ministry of Peace, Ministry of Plenty, Ministry of Love, and the Ministry of Truth… He knows the whole set…
It’s just -another- sad, and even tragic day for Thailand.
