To make the matter more understandable,It is not the conflict between middle incomes and low incomes.Actually,it is the war between Thailand and Thaksin who has been destroying Thailand.With his enormous resource,corrupted money,he buys parliament and owns a puppet government,buys high ranked police officers and everything he can.His sister becomes his robot prime minister.It’s a pity,she has subnormal intelligent.What she can do for Thais is embarrassment.So Thai people can no longer tolerate Thaksin regime and they are doing what they can do to free his country from the tyranny.

Blockage the Ministry of Defence and Home Affairs (Police/Justice)-sure way to achieve overpowering the government. Why bother with the commercial service ministries and industries like Stock Exchange, hotels and airport. Paralyse the train and the river water ways. And finally, stock up all the food in Bangkok and no one else can purchase. Bangkok will demise together with the elites, Royalists, academics, journalists and so on.

Suthep Thaugsuban had been issued by court an arrest warrant for treason, and yet he can continue freely orchestrate sabotage actions against Yingluck government. A strange country without authority of law enforcement deserves to be in chaos with stock market and air flights paralysed. Doubt if putting off election yield any help to current standoff. The opposition is pampered too much.

The PDRC needs to play by the rules…..just being out numbered and in the minority does not confer special rights to attempt to turn the country upside down to get their way. They should regroup, revise their platform to appeal to the masses and actually WIN an election if they wish to be the legitimate leaders in Thailand. There is little doubt many of their claims and concerns have merit, but rewriting the rules in order to achieve their agenda will result in further bloodshed and their ultimate failure towards achieving their objectives. They have no chance in the next election cycle, and getting their way will lead to total chaos….Start thinking about why you haven’t been elected without using the other side as your ongoing excuse.

Bangkok has NOT been brought to a standstill….Not even close. Just a few intersections in the city have been blocked off. This protest will fail to achieve its goal.
