1. You label me an imbocle(sic), spew BS, proven(?) wrong in my assesment, a paid pawn, made insinuations, deny the truth, etc, etc, and after this personal attack, you demand that I be banned?
Whoa, I am aware that the absh*t govt are authoritative totalitarians, but now I know from which source they sprang into power from.
2. Your claim that the criminal govt are' less than perfect' surely is the understatement of the year. How about
'barbaric' to be politically correct as a kind label?
3. So, being on the ground, you had became the sole authority and arbiter of truth here? All various different sources reports that counter DIRECTLY against your claims are made up and pure hogwash? Even if I lied, surely others cant be lying, can they? Talk about being deluded.
You and your kind are truly a waste of my time and effort. You are not my concern and never is so long as you refuse to pull down your blinkers, look around and do some soul searching on what is happening right on your blood filled streets.
Enjoy your delusions while people are dying at your location. You have that selfish right. Ciao! [/quote
You are an imbocile, as you refuse to see no other truth but your own. Your attacks on people relaying the truth of the situation are childish at best and insulting at worst.
Your insistance that the protesters are all innocent victims is complete and utter nonsense, as they are armed with a variety of weapons and ready to fight. However, there are innocent victims that have been used as pawns by the UDD red leadership and especially Thaksin, who are waiting to be paid and want their I.D. cards back so they can go home and get out of the firing zone. Unfortunately, the red guards are refusing to return their I.D.'s and tell them they must wait to get paid.
Thaksin in one of his speeches implored all his supporters to come out and demonstrate and bring your children, what kind of man encourages people to put their children in harms way? The next day, thaksin's own children left the country, just like they did last Sonkran when he inspired rioting and then went begging on CNN for international intervention.
The government is providing buses take protesters home, if they choose to leave the protest site, many have been leaving.
You sound like a communist with your propoganda, unfortunately their are poor people all over the world and much poorer than Thailand. However, education is an important requisite to end poverty as continuous handouts do not work. In Thailand no one goes hungry and education has been made mandatory until 16 years of age by the present government. the 50 baht health care scheme and other policies introduced by Thaksin have not been recinded and are still available, so really life has improved tremendously over the past several years for the poor, so why are they protesting? Because they are being paid to!
The poor have the greatest representation in parliment as they elected the most MP's that many of them have chosen to abandon them and align themselves with the opposition to form a coalition government is something that they should take up with their representatives, not riot and make life intolerable for the people of Bangkok!
You keep stating that all these people are asking for are CRUMBS! But they change their demands on a daily basis and behave like they are the government? Stating that the PM and Deputy PM have to be arrested before their own terrorist leaders hand themselves in is just absolute nonsense! The government in any nation has a duty to protect the general public from violent protesters and terrorists, especially if they hold a major area and its residents hostage.
