Thai Army Reform: A tough new rule – with exceptions

Recommended Posts

He made some notable exceptions, saying Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha and Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwan, both retired generals, were exempt because of their significant contributions to the country’s wellbeing.

 

"Significant contributions to the country's well-being?" No comment.

In the realm of comedy, these guys continually outdo themselves.   Well done.

Apirat wants retired officers out of their subsidised homes so that serving officers still without houses can move in.

 

He ordered the Army Welfare Department to determine which of the retirees had less than sterling records while serving their country and issue them eviction notices with a February 29 deadline.

So are the houses rented or owned by the officers?

If they merely rented them during their career then when retired they should automatically vacate the properties?

"... less than sterling records while serving their country "

 

Most officers have been in the Thai military during a period when there was no conflict, therefore no chance to shine in the field.

 

So what else would give them the classification of a 'sterling record'?

 

- Car always very clean. (Actually cleaned by conscripts.)

 

- Uniforms beautifully starched and very highly polished shoes, every day. (Actually done cleaned by conscripts.)

Srisuwan believes the premier displayed poor manners by smiling, waving and forming his fingers into a heart shape when he should have been sombre, in deep sympathy for the victims.

My GOD! Come down and see... What I must to read!

The ombudsman was asked to look into Prayuts behaviour, after the tragedy !!

What will the outcome be?

Ohh he was under stress, beside himself with grief, thats probably what will be the excuse, for the clowns disgusting, disrespectful antics.

First post in and the usual Thaigeezer negativity. At least you maintain the standard. Reform IS necessary but its not going to happen over night.

But they can sneak in the back door when all the fuss has blown over. Everything as usual.

 

But hey !!! Why would Prayuth need to use the army welfare scheme ?

 

Back in May 2013 he sold a plot of land to a private company newly opened ( his was first transaction ) in the British Virgin Island ( tax haven )for a whopping 600,000,000 !!

 

So has he spent all that to justify going on army welfare ?

 

Yea yea....it all went on drugs ,booze and fast women as usual

 

 

But didn't they cease to be army the moment they were involved in firing upon civilians?

Indeed. But now we have the very very senior army bosses showing they are more equal than their perceived minions. The minions ain't gonna be pleased with this. Could be the start of some fractures.
