Democrat Party Rajaprasong rally to “explain killing”

22 06 2011

In The Nation, it is stated that its planned “rally” at Rajaprasong is to “express its views on the bloody military crackdown last year…”. Democrat Party strategist Korbsak Sabhavasu says they want to do this regardless of the impact on votes. He says the party, led by Abhisit Vejjajiva and Suthep Thaugsuban, who oversaw the murderous crackdown, wants to give its “side of the story.”

He adds: “The party needed to explain its side of the story and voters have the right to know the truth before casting their ballots. Many people directly involved in the incident, such as Jatuporn Promphan and Natthawut Saikua are Pheu Thai Party candidates…”.

Of course, the government has Jatuporn locked up in order to silence him.

Abhisit said he wanted “relatives of six dead rescue staff members to listen to the Democrats’ explanations on the bloody incident. The six were killed in Wat Pathum Wanaram temple…”. He claimed: “If they listen to the other side of the truth, they would get a better understanding of the situation…. I’m ready to exchange opinions with the relatives…”.

Is the Democrat Party serious? Is Abhisit serious? Hasn’t their story been, all along, that no soldier killed anyone? Hasn’t this been stated ad nauseum? Hasn’t the government, the Department of Special Investigation and its Army deliberately delayed all investigation? Didn’t protesters run in front of bullets?

If, just for a moment, we consider them serious, and that they do have another story to tell, couldn’t they have explained “their side” earlier? Couldn’t Abhisit have talked with relatives of the dead before, in a situation other than a political rally? Couldn’t they have expressed sympathy? Shouldn’t there have been some progress on a serious investigation of the killing? No, they aren’t serious at all. They are desperate and heartless knaves.
