Phra Kiew, Paetongtarn and reconciliation

In politics, a man’s good news is another man’s bad one. However, here’s doom and gloom for all: Long-lasting national peace will remain very remote no matter what happens from here on out.


People bemoaning the national divide and vowing to fix it often come and go, but strife is here to stay and those promising to end it ends up intensifying it themselves. Prayut Chan-o-cha’s song pledging to be a reconciler has been mocked and his presence has aggravated divisions, but his opponents are also to blame.


It should have been their turn to provide or propose a workable solution, yet early signs are discouraging. Recent developments _ Thaksin Shinawatra’syoungest daughter being ushered into the picture and the Phra Kiew uproar _ all but confirmed that reconciliation will even be more elusive in Thailand.

"By Tulsathit Taptim" deranged junta apologist.

So he blames protesters, reformers and opposition for their audacity to challenge the ruling class and be shot, imprisoned, gassed.

Opposition is not anymore from thaksin, he is a royalist dinosaur as the rest of the powers. Fake reformer.

True opposition is from move forward and many political groups outside the parliament. That includes human and workers rights defenders, NGO's

If it is long lasting national peace that K Taptim aspire, he should write a piece on the military adventurism since 1932 that has crushed national peace and democracy. If he has the fortitude, go behind the coups and lay bare the the power brokers. He is missing the forest for the trees again.
