Didn't he just?

 

Big-time.

 

And it ain't over 'til it's over. Watch for the 24-hour (with some exceptions like getting food/drink) curfew threatened by Prayuth, Apirat will be needing that. Time to check and replenish the food stocks.

 

By the pricking of my thumbs, something surprising this way comes (with apologies to Ray Bradbury). Big changes-a-coming.

“We have appointed the Directorate of Operations to order the deputy director of the Internal Security Operations Command in each Army region to cooperate with provinces to conduct a survey,” he said.

Is the word "survey" a Thai word for "reconnaissance"?

Quite so. Answers on a postcard...

 

I just heard a sound like thunder. I think it was Prayuth's knees. And Prawit's, and Anupong (though I think he will be on the side of the new boy).

The disease in this case is not the virus.

And not surprising news at all. Now they get to show off their new armored toys. 

They  been waiting long enough to get them Apaches in the Sky, and the Strikers trundling through the streets.

I figured the Army - ApiRat - would get involved at some point.  Now with the Army in the streets around the country what else is next .....

 

Honestly - with no respect for the police - that's really the only option in Thailand to enforce pretty much anything. It's not like Duterte saying that he'll get anyone violating curfew shot. He did that before so people take him seriously. Here government can say anything they want, but over 50% of population plain ignore it, knowing there'll be no enforcement and if there is, they know a cousin, uncle, brother, friend... working for police somewhere to make the problem go away. A man with a machine gun who looks like he's not kidding is a very different story.

 

I live near Pratunam intersection and on normal day, people drive through red light, in wrong direction from one way street right pass the policeman. They just don't care about all the violations they've just done. If you try to cross the road near the junction, there's always fear some nutcase driving through red and knocking you down even with police in the box in intersection. However after redshirt fiasco here, when army was placed to man the traffic... there wasn't a single hero I've seen who would dare to drive through when the man with machine gun was standing there. That's authority. Police has none. So using army to enforce things is actually only way you can get anything enforced here.

 

And I'm sure Thailand isn't the only country like this.

The usual is a new constitution. Nifty way to get it under 100% usurper control again, covert coup.

Apirat and his 'sacred' establishment (as he likes to refer to them) are finally doing some work.

 

Prayut should be worried if the rumours are true.

Not so very covert, though it may start that way. They'll gain confidence quite quickly, and Apirat is not one to allow his light to be hidden under a bushel for very long.

Prayuth should be worried anyway. Plenty to be worried about. His star is waning and when one's star is waning the whole family should run. He really hasn't done a very good job for his bosses.

Curfew, what curfew?

Last night i counted 3 motorbikes driving past our home, between 10.30 and 01.00, so much for a curfew.

How many more after i went to sleep? Who knows.

None of the offending bikes were police, 1, 20 year old girl next door, second 2 young lads, third middle aged man.

You may ask how i know, well checked playback on the gate camera this morning.
