The anti-democrats took a while to get there, but they have now managed to get a story about their Laksi shooters that they all seem to agree on. The Laksi shooters who fired at least three dozen rounds at red shirts were … drum roll … get ready for it … well, “men-in-black.”
Yep, the Bangkok Post reports that after admitting the shooters were theirs, then denying it, then admitting that some were, they finally have a story that they are going to stick with. The Post, helping the anti-democrats get their story straight, states that anti-democrat co-leader Issara Somchai, and the original source admitting that the shooters belonged to his lot, now says that “the man who fired a gun hidden in a popcorn bag, reportedly to protect protesters during the Laksi shoot-out, is a military man.”
That much is almost certainly true.
Issara now says that he has “talked to many people” and they have “told him the man in black was probably a ‘soldier coming to help’.”
“Coming to help” the ant-democrats by shooting unprovoked at red shirts.
Issara is now saying that the ”men in black” are anti-democrats. Are they the same men-in-black allegedly “coming to help” them in 2010?
Issara said “his group was sprayed with gunfire as it approached the intersection.” Most witness accounts say this is horse manure.
Issara “explains” that “some of his supporters who carried pistols were forced to fight back out of fear for their lives…”. So far the evidence suggests almost all the firing was from the anti-democrats and at red shirts, so we call this claim horse dung also.
The audacity of this gunman was remarkable revealing his face along with his weapon and military gear.
In the end, we have the story: the shooter is a man-in-black, a soldier and “helping” the anti-democrats.
