This so called "general" and I use that word loosely because that's basically what he is a loose canon. He should be told by the Government to stay in his barracks and keep his big mouth shut, otherwise this country will never regain total democracy

Regain total democracy? You mean that they had it once but left it in a taxi somewhere after a night out?

 

Bloody nincompoops!

By all accounts he is very close with the big man and seems to have full backing. Nothing will happen to him and the vision he spoke about is a real possibility here. 

Being close to The Watchman is what really separates the acolytes from the sycophants here.

 

The vision he spoke of is simply the stuff his dreams are made of. An increasingly stable and mature political field nurtures the democracy that marginalizes the military. He's having a mid-life crisis and he knows his clock is ticking. Japan, South Korea, Indonesia and the Philippines have all lost their thrall for the strong man in uniform and moved on in immeasurable ways. Only Thailand and her immediate near-neighbors buck that trend, much to their detriment and global disdain.

Global disdain means nothing. Look at Myanmar, Saudi Arabi....

This guy is answerable, or should be. Or perhaps the fact he'll be leading the next coup hasn't escaped the current corrupt regime's attention.

Maybe he invited himself - to tell the Committee to toe the military line or else!!
