It is too predictable….

9 01 2013

In a recent post, PPT explained that the Thaksin-Yingluck appeasement strategy had failed, not least because opponents had worked out how to use it against the government and to prevent democratic reform.

So it is that the Bangkok Post reports that the People’s Alliance for Democracy makes predictable demands on Preah Vihear. Essentially threatening mass demonstrations if the government doesn’t capitulate to the xenophobic ultra-royalists, PAD demands that the government repudiate the International Court of Justice, keeps the area militarized (with Thai troops occupying the area), and chase Cambodians out.PAD

Essentially the xenophobes want to trash any international jurisdiction and law that might prevent Thailand ultra-nationalists having control of a tiny piece of land that they have endowed with political meaning.

Predictably, they want to stand on the land and cheer for Thailand and monarchy and if that means trashing law and the deaths of more Thais and Cambodians, these bloodthirsty xenophobes couldn’t care less.
