Yesterday evening I read that Mr Thaksin appealed to the King to please intervene.... because otherwise violence would get worse and worse...

... today we read about 100 bullets in Sondi's car

Coincidence?

Is it a ploy to trigger a violent reaction from the yellow shirts to stop the sinking popularity of the red shirts after their violence?

Is it really necessary to bring down Thailand to a civil war for the gains of a few?

What about the majority of people who are sick of all this fighting? Aren't they Thai too?

People should understand this...I just reported the incident as I hear it from my contacts in Australia...I made adjustments as more news come to light...nothing more and more less.

The original information was "he was shot".....subsequent information was he sustained minor injury.

I made no other comments.

I do not wish to see violence in Thailand; neither when PAD took over the streets and the airports, nor when the Red shirts took over the streets.

I made the observation that Thailand has always been corrupt regardless of who has been in power. It has been like that long before any of us were born....it is not a recent discovery!!!

And Chirs, it is funny how you make a comment about people being sick of all this fighting...did you think of that when the PAD took over the streets, government house and the airport (I don't recall you ever making such comments) or did you just come down from Mount Sinai and suddenly found some moral fibre to speak on behalf of the majority?...LOL

Btw, who did the majority voted for again? LOL.....yeah, I guess the majority does not matter when it does not subscribe to your belief?...haha

either red or yellow if they do really love Thailand as they both keep barking then why don't they get together and fight with those bad people in the south of Thailand????

i think a shooter was aim to shoot right into Sondi's mouth...LOL

Round 3, fight! There are rumors that people 'knew' Sondhi was (going to be) shot before it even happened. One step closer to the edge and Thailand is about to break.

Cosmo,

I did not attack your post for supporting what has happened. I only added some questions I have and where it will probably lead to.

If you read all of my posts in journals as well as forums before and know me you will see that I don't support PAD (nor UDD). I am against corrupt politicians and against people hellbent on wrecking the country, not only because of business but because all of my friends are Thai. As long as PAD was rallying peaceful around the Government House there was nothing wrong with them.

The moment they went in and overtook the Government grounds the broke the law and should have been dealt with in an intelligent manner by the Somchai government (which was established under the same 'coup constitition' as the current government). The moment the PAD occupied the airports they lost most of their support. I have always said that.

The same goes for the red shirts. As long as they rallied peacefully there was nothing wrong with them. The moment they started blocking intersections, setting busses alight and threatening to blow up gas tankers they elevated themselves to terrorists.

is that meant to be sarcasm or stupidity !!!!!!

A lot of people talk about injustive because PAD has not been convicted or is not in jail yet. If you compare, in my opinion the crimes are quite different. I don't remember the airport being in ruins after the yellow shirts left. Nonetheless they should be convicted and I remember that they all surrendered to hear there charges and were released on bail pending their process.

Most of the red shirt leaders and provocators are still on-the-run. They bring down the country and don't even have the guts to surrender and face justice. On the main leaders having been denied bail, I wholeheartedly agree. Their aim was not to force the government out by holding a sit-in but by street violence, rioting and urban guerilla warfare and as you all have heard from Jakrapob Penkair, he wants to take his group 'underground'. Do you want to see Bangkok become like Jerusalem? Think about it? For what? For who?

Both movements should be prosecuted but as I said before... probably some sort of 'amnesty' even for them will probably be handed out which basically says... you can get away with anything as long as you use force.

If you read my comment again you will see that I do not speak for the majority. I am asking that question because most people that I speak to are sick with this violence.

And who did the majority vote for again? Well, with elections where the 'biggest' party was two times caught stealing votes it's hard to tell isn't it? This is not Red against Yellow, or PPP against Democrats... This is Red and Yellow and the majority of people who are neither...

It seems that if I'm against the red violence then I'm all of a sudden a supporter of Yellow. It would be good if people are a little bit more open-minded and look for what is best for the country and this violent revolution does not benefit the people... It only benefits one person and those without blindfolds know who.

And more and more of his former supporters start to see that now after these riots. He can never come back to Thailand to lead again because what Thailand needs is somebody who can bring Thai people together, not somebody who puts them against each other for his own personal gain.

.... and before someone says... it's just a bunch of Red Shirt supporters who got fed up because of injustice and decided to shoot him..

Shooting a hundred bullets with an M16 or AK47 is not just an attempt at murder. It's a death squad.

I would like to hear what else comes up from this incident as a bus driver said that another car or van pulled up to hit back at the attackers....

There are some 'strange' things about some of the reports.

(1) They said first the 4 tires were shot. Please somebody explain to me how you can shoot 4 tires of a car. 2 are on the left hand side, 2 are on the right hand side...

(2) The attackers got out of their car.... Why didn't they check if he was still alive?

(3) They shot 100 bullets and their main target is still alive be it sevely injured.

These are some of the things that bother me in the whole report so do you have any more questions about my moral fibre and integrity Cosmo?

In the last election, the PPP did NOT win a majority. They won more seats than the Democrats, but the partly list vote was nearly evenly split across the country. Get your facts right for a change, Cosmo. Furthemore, all the recent opinion polls show that the majority of Thais want the violence and demonstrations to stop and the for the government to be given a chance to do its job.

Thailand may have "always been corrupt" but that does not change the fact that some governments are far more corrupt than others. And are you suggesting that people not fight against corruption, and instead just throw up their hands and accept it? That's a view right out of the Dark Ages.

Interesting! I just saw the news on TV and they said those attacker are well-trained but it come to my surprise is that if they are well-trained then why don't they know those bullets are not working well in the length of where they were shooting??

majority means more than 50% !!!

most western governments (where PR is used) have to form coalition governments to have a MAJORITY in parliment !!

funnily enough that's what thaksin's puppet regime had to do !!

there is a case to be made that countries using first past the post r NOT democracies, but then that's a different story !!

Link to comment

The majority of the people want Thaksin convicted, and in jail. The last 2 PMs (one was Thaksin's brother-in-law) were solely in place for the purpose of pardoning Thaksin, and changing the new constitution so he, and his cronies could return to office. They had no other concerns. With that agenda it makes no difference what the vote counts were, or how it affected Democracy. When it was very clear that the coruption that the coup was against was trying to return, the yellow shirts did everything peacifully possible from letting that happen.

Don't be clouded by the propaganda of Thaksin. Don't think to much, everything that has been going on is simply so Thaksin can get his money back, and regain his "face". It is that simple. Nothing more, nothing less.

CiaranM: I know what majority mean!!!

And I know what a Majority of Parliament is,.. LOL....I used to work for the Labor party in Australia when Pauline Hanson was around.

You should read what Loburt asserted..."PPP did NOT win a majority"...in the context of what he said (elections)....what do you think he meant by it?...did you really think he meant >50%? ...LOL

Aren't you being a bit facetious?!?

Link to comment

nope i'm being serious .... in some countries (UK) being a prime example u can win a majority of the seats in parliment without getting >50% of the vote. again whether this is truly democracy is debateable !!

my understanding (and correct me if i'm wrong) the PPP did not win either a majority of the vote or of seats in parliment !! therefore although they were the biggest party, they by themselves were unable to form a majority goverment !!
