In response to criticism about the military intervention in politics, Kongcheep said it was difficult to explain. However, if the people had not wanted it, the intervention could not have taken place, he said.

Absolutely deluded

I try to be particularly upset with the current government, but, from my perspective, all Thai leadership is corrupt and incompetent. All.

 

So, it's easier to criticize them all. 

 

I have never read about an even reasonably competent Thai government in the last 100 years. 

 

Thais have exactly zero decent choices. The best they can do is try to vote for whichever corruption benefits them at the expense of some other groups. 

 

That's a moral trap, you have to decide to vote for yourself, or vote for the best for your country. If you choose "whichever corruption benefits them at the expense of some other groups", then you are part of the problem, not the solution.

Once again this un-elected person is voicing policy , it is not the military's part , this is the ( At the moment ) duty of the un-elected Minister.

I agree with you. What I am saying is Thais have no good options that benefit the country broadly. They have only options that benefit various small groupings of people. 

 

This is a tribal country. I would love to see them stop pretending they care about Democracy. In order of preference, most Thais think like this. 

 

"I want

 

A. a government that benefits me and my family, OR

 

B. a government that benefits A and my close friends, OR

 

C. a government that does not benefit any other group more than A and B, OR

 

D. otherwise, I don't care who is in power." 

 

In other words, they are tribal and selfish.

Which is why nothing will change here, and the Juntaship (we can't use the real term here) will continue to take advantage of these traits that they know exist.

Terrific news. I really hope its not just campaign rhetoric. The Thai army has been holding this country back for decades .I doubt if a single one of the nearly 2000 generals and admirals has any combat experience.

Corrupt pathetic rabble.

A troop of smart farang boy scouts would run rings around the pathetic excuse for military hierarchy screwing this country to benefit themselves.

That is the most idiotic statement I have ever heard, and these are the imbeciles in charge?! If this is their spokesman, they need to rethink his position, because he's about as dumb as a box of rocks.

Far too high in the ratings, a box of rocks can be of use...

I hear what you say, and yes - it might well have done them the world of good but on the other hand maybe not - for all the BS that goes on here, it's streets ahead of where Burma is today.
