If the Red Shirts are hell-bent on destabilizing the Kingdom of Thailand, then the police and military have the right and the duty to suppress these riotous demonstrators.
This forum really scares me sometimes.
Where is your limit?
When you've tried everything legal and reasonable to elect a stable, democratic, just and fair government and a power-mad bunch of self-serving corrupt people are leading your nation. What then?
It's not as simple as people think. This is far more about pure anti-elitist sentiment than anything else, in that people are fed up all over the world of seeing a select group living in luxury at the expense of the people, running a country for their own ends rather than the benefit of the people they are elected to serve.
The people have the right to choose their leaders and their destiny. And when governments refuse to listen to the people and do the job that they were elected to do, this is what happens.
And no government on the Earth is actually paying any attention. Otherwise, they'd all be cutting their own pay, refusing to bail out the bankers, destroying the central banks and severing their corrupt corporate connections.
Instead, they're sitting back and laughing, before breaking out the weapons and shooting at their own people!
It's disgusting. Every government watching this should be ashamed, and be fearful. This is only going to get worse until governments actually take some action to rectify their standing with their own people.
Coming to a major city near you: civil unrest on a massive scale.
We all knew it was coming, it's only going to get worse as taxes rise and standards of living decline. America, England, Europe... we're all in line for it. The only question is how long it's going to take until we get as angry as so many other societies.
Personally I'd predicted this to take place a year ago. So I give us another two years at most before our governments are shooting at our people from their ivory towers.
