.........if he and the rest of his Green Gangster chums are kept chained up in their kennels, where they belong, taken for walks occasionally and released only to fight wars against foreign invaders and to help with flood relief.

 

Not very appealing to those thoroughly indoctrinated with a medieval concept of the "virtue" and "nobility" of warlordship, and the entitlement that it automatically bestows.

 

That's their world.

if PTP wins again, there will be another coup. ( it's just a circle). But I doubt the next general election is going to be fair and just. ( maybe no election needed because we are so happy with the junta!!! 😁).

You think the elections before were fair & just?

You really think elections once every X years brings democracy and happiness to the people?

Of course Prawit and his comrades s are quite correct and confident a future coup will not take place. The simple reason being the Generals will ensure the Military Party will "democratically" win the next election by using every means at their disposal thus ensuring they remain in power. No need to even change the place name at the Cabinet Room table.

After that other Thai political parties will be gagged and consigned to the dustbin of history.

 

 

I remembered someone said there will be NO COUP before the coup in 2014? So if I cannot trust the big fish why will I believe the smaller one?

Which countries have reconciliation between political parties? Communist countries and dictatorships. Most have a healthy political imbalance between various factions. Prayut does not seem to understand politics and democracy.

And that imbalance surely brings happiness to the people?

Really?

In my view elections make me choose between bad and bad.

A coup this year? Shows how little the Washington Post understands what's been going on in Thailand.

You're one of them.

 

Like them you only understand one language.

 

I hope you are in Thailand when the population wakes up and realises that it is the only language to use against them.

While I'd never say never, they seem to have "coup-proofed" the country with

 

managed constitution

"organic" laws

judiciary/courts

appointed senate

selected PM (green only, Prayut one assumes, reluctantly)

fixed proportional/party list combo for lower house

media gag laws

computer crimes laws

defamation laws

corruption

power/strength/guns/soldiers

 

 

There is virtually no way for the masses to achieve any sort of "majority".

 

 

They've basically closed every potential outlet for democratic representation, through trial and error since 2006, to why would they need another coup.

 

Not to say there may not be intra-Army squabbles, but even those are settled with a sharing of the honey-pot, so every on is happy, and no counter-coup.

Gen Prawit confirms there won't be another coup this year

BANGKOK, 3 February 2017 (NNT) - Defense Minister Gen Prawit Wongsuwan said if the reconciliation process is successful, democracy will be restored and Thailand will never have another coup again. 

Deputy Prime Minister Gen Prawit dismissed a report by an American news agency which claimed that Thailand is the second country most likely to have a military coup this year. Gen Prawit assured that such practice will not happen if national unity is achieved. 

He added that people will elect their representatives to run the country when general elections take place and the army will go back to being under the management of a civilian government. Gen Prawit insisted that all military units are unified and that a coup to topple the current administration is very unlikely.

Of course there will be more future coups. They certainnly didnt learn anything from the last 18 and they wont from the next 10.

If governments here could get on with the job of governing rather than see getting into government as a way to line their pockets and thus causing a coup because the military do not want to miss out on the fun then there would never be a coup. Also there should be no place in the government for the military. The military are for the sole purpose of protecting the country from outside invasion to the country, its oceans and terrorteries The government protects the internal  affairs of the country with its laws and regulations and judicial system.

Personally, I'm surprised the stupid, fat little toad can read!

I think a few targeted assassinations are way more likely.

How can you refer to the fat toad as the "smaller one"?  :smile:

 

If you refer to any of them as fish, given their pathetic performance to date, I would have to assume that they are all from the family FLOUNDER!  :sleep:

In reading the comments, I am convinced that the expats still think they know everything there is

to know about Thailand, and Thai politics.  Maybe if a democratic election takes place and the

people who do get in power are not bought and paid for as they were in the past, then maybe the

Democratic government would be a lot more real than the last two attempts. Just like Trump in the US, I say let the next election take place and give Thailand a chance, don't be so quick to slam the present PM

as at least he has made an attempt to clean up some of the obvious problems that the last two

leaders did not.

Geezer

This is all old stale soup - boring.

I wait for a coup of the coup, i.e. the mother-of-a--coups where the army is putsching against itself. 

Wait for those dinosaurs to disappear eventually, meanwhile have a nice glass of wine
