    Pheu Thai prepares for worst-case scenario

    Two were convicted on firearms charges, not for anything they did with the fireams. For God's sake man, wake up. Remanded in custody because the prosecuion might appeal? Thai jurisprudence at it's very finest. Ye Gods and little fishes... and yet, as ridiculous as it is, there's always someone who isn't Thai who'll believe it. I can't engage in this nonsense any more, sorry, no offence.

    Seriously.? Insufficient evidence to convict and you triumphantly proclaim it as proof of something? Seriously? Yuou should be embarrassed that this is what you have resorted to in order to peddle your snake oil. I'm embarrassed for you.

    Please get real. A few photos of people in black shirts is not proof of anything. Who were they? Dunno. Where were they? Dunno. What were they doing? Dunno. Who commanded them? Dunno. Where did they get guns? Dunno. Why has there been no unmasking (like the popcorn shooter)? Dunno. Were any of them shot by any of the thousands of soldiers with guns? And bullets? Dunno. What were they charged with? How credible was the evidence(remembering this is Thailand)? Dunno. Please stop peddling this fiction in ways which imply things that have no reality. It's embarrassing. And it broke my BS Meter.
  4. Agree, I think you hit the nail on the head. Lack of intelligence and lack of education, it's meat and drink to the fascisti, and that I think, applies to every single 3rd-world country I've ever heard of. They do say that homo sapiens surpasses the other primates. Personally, I look around me and I'm not so sure. Watching Thai TV is useful if wanting to get an insight into Thai behaviour, or so I've found. Thai language skills not always necessary - body language, facial expressions and micro expressions and a deeply cynical outlook are all that seem to be required.
  5. In other words, another beat-up by the Thais pooyays... 'Watch out for the bogey-men, they're coming to steal your wives and daughters..." A Dom special.
  6. Paranoid seem like it's only the beginning of this guy's problems. Still, he's entitled to make noises I suppose. the big problem is that a goodly number of very strange people seem to be listening. Personally I think he's a muppet and wouldn't wee on him if he burst into flames.

    Men in black... A myth quite the equal of Bigfoot. Men in black - OK... whatever floats yer boat.

    Agree with all of that except a government (no matter how dishonestly or criminally asserted) cannot commit treason against itself. Not in law anyway. I try not to think about this stuff, it's no skin off my nose whatever happens. It;s Thai business, and Thai business makes precisely the same amount of sense to me as Thai anything. The 3am thing is a law thing. If the law says it's OK, then it's OK, no matter what you or I think about it. No point getting bent out of shape because a few brigands get out of line and outsmart themselves.
  9. Agree, If they don't understand English and they start the 'no understand'game when I speak (probably bad) Thai, then I exercise my right to shop wherever I wish and just walk out. I generally mutter something about being unable to do business with idiots on my way out the door. And I agree, a lot of Thai food is just dreadful, it explains why historically, Thais are short and thin and dim - poor nutrition. That's changing now thank goodness (well the short and thin is anyway, the dimness will need more than a few decent meals) ,so there is light at the end of the tunnel.

    Treason is against the law. There's no point arguing how many angels can dance on the head of a pin, treason is agsinst the law. And the threat of using guns in the hands of the perpetrators makes a crime into a violent crime in any civilised country. Of course, you are free to believe whatever suits you, and for whatever reason it suits you. Because there is a reason, as you know, and that reason will accomodate personal history.
  11. Bless... Life must be a real puzzle for them. So many things to try and understand, so little time...

    Makes me angry just to look at him, a stellar example of someone who should never be in politics - as narcissistic as Prayuth and as honest as Dick Turpin. A quisling who deserves to be a gelding.

    So armed robbery is not a violent crime if no shots are fired? Really? I'm not so sure about that. Ahhh. My estimation of your IQ just took on another 20 points. I should have known better...

    Perhaps they had their fingers crossed... seriously though, whenever dealing with someone making promises... ask yourself: 1. What nationality are they? 2. What occupation are they? Now, the first answer is 'Thai', and the second is 'politician'. And you still believed them? Seriously?
