Is anyone in Thailand acting in the interests of the general public?

With all that's going on in Thailand, I just don't see how these red shirts, yellow shirts or blue shirts have the public's interest at heart. These groups are self-serving entities who seem intent on doing nothing more than creating anarchy. Furthermore, these groups have high-level support spurring them on. The police, army, government should be acting on behalf of the people to stop this no matter what. It's a sad, depressing time as Thailand continues to go round in circles.

  1. Do you think fair that the 1997 constitution (the most democratic ever in Thailand) was scrapped by the 2006 coup?

    Do you think fair that people are jailed for lese-majeste?

    I suppose (hope?) you answer no to both.

    Don't you think that a new election would be the most democratic solution?

    If you're a real journalist, instead of short stupid posts that bring nothing, try to develop your point.

  2. John, to be fair to this particular blogger, the red shirts are not calling for an election.
    According to the UDD's "international spkoesman,"

    …they're calling for an election under the 1997 constitution, not the 2007 constitution which was passed by the referendum and was then perfectly democratic when it created Samak and Somchai administrations.
    So, no… Abhisit calling an election would not solve the problem. And, is it democratic to have an allegedly undemocratic govt scrapping a constitution that was voted by the people?

  3. And you think that holding an election will just magically solve all the problems in the country? Come on, John. You have a group of people trying to overthrow the government once again. This isn't in the name of democracy.
