Won’t get fooled again?

It was only in December when the EU capitulated to the junta. More than three years after the EU suspended ties to Bangkok in protesting the 2014 military coup, it restored relations.

Part of the reasoning for this dumb decision was that “developments in Thailand this year [2017], including the adoption of a new constitution and a pledge by junta chief [General] Prayut Chan-O-Cha to hold elections in November 2018,” made it “appropriate” to resume ties.

Fooled by the junta (and exhibiting an inability to read military leaders), the EU now seems miffed that the junta has behaved exactly as expected and again “delayed” elections. We have lost count of how many “delays.”

The Bangkok Post reports that the EU is seeking to clean up its spilled milk.

It has “urged the regime to ensure a quick return to democracy and stick to its pledge to hold elections in November.”

We are pretty sure that, as usual, the junta will do what it thinks will be best for the junta.

The EU fumbled in December and its almost impossible to regain that high moral ground.
