Dumb and dumber

29 11 2015

We know almost all of our readers will have seen the latest and widely circulated stories on the “Khon Kaen Model Plot.” Even so, we feel we must post on the military’s most recent demonstration of its stupidity and disdain for the Thai people, if only as a matter of record.

Yes, we refer to the suspect, claimed to be “on the run,” who has been incarcerated in a Khon Kaen jail since mid-2014.

It was the junta – the so-called National Council for Peace and Order – that filed the complaints that led to the police warrants for Thanakrit Thongngernperm and eight others. They were accused of “terrorism,”  lese majeste and computer crimes.

None of the original Khon Kaen 26 has yet been convicted and many remain in jail. PPT thought the military concocted that “plot.”

We can now be sure that they have concocted the most recent “plot.”

The military dictatorship is full of such dunces, brought up to operate on unquestioned hierarchical obedience, its leaders are unable to concoct a believable lie. That’s obviously good for those who oppose them because the regime is composed of thugs rather than “thinking thugs,” who are infinitely more dangerous.

At the same time, this episode of political nastiness also displays how the military regime considers every single Thai to be stupid or gullible.
