Has to be reiterated: What opposition? Where?

Opposition parties will be increasing as more elections are held and more PPRP seats are lost in many lower races.  This will culminate in the eventual losses at the MP level when those elections are held.  Hold onto your hats boys and girls it will get very ugly in my view.  Some are even thinking there may be a staged coup by this Government much like the one done in Myanmar and force democracy to the curb.  If that occurs then what will occur will not be a pretty sight for those of us living in the country.

Well, sure. That's what they do when threatened and been a way of life for decades. 

Don't have to be much of a scholar, or simple observer, to comprehend the cycle of contemporary Thai history. 

Have you [or others] really given much reasoned thought as to why these coups occur? Give ya a hint: protection racket. 

Remember, they all require permission and blessings to pursue any such activity. 

 

There's never a coup, or it's fallout, that might ever resemble anything like Myanmar. Sure, a few historic scrapings here and there - and almost always isolated. Never been a true dictatorial crackdown that has resulted from any such coup. It's not the Thai way. Tradition. History repeats itself quite often here - which doesn't seem to be understood by many......especially outsiders who pretend to be knowledgeable about these affairs.

Tell me by looking back at history that you so fully espoused as reasonings for a coup, and tell me how many coups have led to a continued Military Government like the one we are seeing and have seen for the past 8 years going on 9 now.  That in itself should give you and idea that the past history has already been shredded....
