Army chief recommends listening to an old Thai song ‘Kilet Manoot’

According to an informed army source, Army Commander-in-Chief General Apirat Kongsompong has recommended that his aides and acquaintances listen to an old Thai song called “Kilet Manoot” or (Human Defilement) which, he said, fits the current political situation as politicians squabble over cabinet seats.

 

The essential translated message of the song, sung by Thanin Intharathep, is that, rich or poor, human behavior, good or bad, reflects one’s background and upbringing. While steel and diamonds are strong, they can be changed by the power of money and being a “kiss-ass” can make even salt taste sweet, but he who has the longest arm will reap the benefits.

 

Earlier in February, General Apirat suggested Khunying Sudarat Keyuraphan, Pheu Thai party’s chief election strategist, should listen to the 1970s right-wing political song “Nak Paendin” (Burden of the Land), and ordered army-run radio stations to air the song in retaliation for her suggestion that, if the Pheu Thai party is in government, it will propose a 10% cut in the defence budget and scrap conscription.

Maybe have students educated to think outside the box and they'll have a better future.

Is that a pop at the Dems and the Bums? Don't worry - people are learning more and more via social media who are reaping all the benefits.

Maybe he will get his chance to gun down 50 people in the Bangkok streets as well. Or would it be 50 politicians in the house?

Rap against dictatorship is a far better listen!

I understand those who sang that are currently hiding out in fear of their lives!

Pity help Thailand if this army strongman ever gets control which could be any time in the near future.

His father was a previous coup leader so it is in his genes and ambitions.

It is on its way...

Maybe the General could convince that French guy Yan Marchal (is that his name?) to sing it as a special favor for the government. He seems to have a...talent...for catchy, inspirational tunes.
