 Maybe we should listen what the Thai people have to say - if they are allowed to e xpress an opinion.

Well, he certainly has tried to fill his cabinet with able folks. His appointing Somkid to office -- a Thaksin populist who just happens to be extremely smart when it comes to helping the Thai people -- shows good judgment on Prayut's part. And I really haven't seen any negatives during his time in office, either him or his associates.

 

If Prayut runs in the next election, and wins, good. I can't imagine anyone else potentially running against him that would be any better. Abhasit? Nice guy, but he had his chance and failed. Any red shirt contenders of note? None that come to mind.

 

And, hey, being a four star general really does give you a leg up on others, in terms of smarts and leadership. Look at the US today -- two 4-star generals as Chief of Staff and Defense Dept Sec'y; 4-star Chairman JCS; 3-star NSC head. Then there's Washington, Ike, Marshall, to name a few successful leaders as civilians. Yeah, they never staged a coup -- yet. But give Trump a little while longer.

 

No, Thailand is doing just fine under Prayut. That he's there illegitimately -- so what, as long as it's not to the detriment of Thailand, which it isn't.

 

Yeah, me too. Prayut's my man.

 

Please be more precise. Just choose one of the following topics:

- less corrupt people in power?

- more efficient economic policy?

- less cryonism and nepotism?

- better protected civil rights such as freedom of opinion and freedom of speech?

- more accountable government?

- more transparency (for example about public procurements)?

- more independent justice?

 

Please  choose one of these topics and explain us precisely why it is better with the junta. We are eager to read your arguments!

As they can only have an opinion or comment throughout underground and closed circles....
