The Latest Update From Howard Monath in Bangkok

Howard Monath in Bangkok & Reporting for the WORD

Reported via facebook. Well. The ‘Red Shirts’ here are no longer wearing their red shirts. Strategically this makes some sense, but you have to wonder if the ‘Reds’ are doing to themselves what the army and the Thai government so far haven’t been able to do to them.

Due to an editorial oversight, earlier posts by Howard Monath’s kickboxing friend were not included. ¬†Here is one.

Via facebook; Red Shirts are a bunch of illiterate country people from Issan manouvred and paid by Thaksin Shinawatra Thailand corrupted ex-prime minister that now lives in Dubai.
Thaksin is using Red Shirts movement to come back to power in Thailand and don’t face corruption charges and go to jail. This is the problem. So it is not a real revolutionary movement…

But it’s much more complex than that, I am sure some of these people are real revolutionary but the problem is that they are being used by a corrupted man.
Is like when Berlusconi took power in Italy and called election and create a party called ‘Freedom people, or something… he got alot of votes because of that, he made some cheap laws, he promised things were going to change , but nothing change in fact everything got worse the government was corrupted and only thought about stealing money for himself…

Conflict of interests: A prime minister cannot be a business man that owns 75 % of the media coverage of the country…

Thaksin is like Berlusconi.
The only difference is that Thai people are not afraid and are for real.
In this country they still are fighters and go down in the streets and fight with their own hands. And I respect that, the only thing is that they think they are fighting for freedom but they are not they are being used by Thaksin…
Thats why more violence will come that is why grenades were thrown in the centre of Bangkok.

Some of the military also is for Thaksin and Red Shirts.
The entire country is divided in two. The North and poor North East is red and BAngkok and the South are yellow.

The only reason why they like America now is because America have a black president. That’s all.

You are wrong this country is the only country in South East Asia that was never colonized.

That was because Thai people in the streets were able to defend themselves even against armed soldiers using the Science of Eight Limbs or so called Muay Chaiya, Boran, the modern version of it Muay thai…

Howard you have only being here for 2 months and you think you know things, I have being here for two years and I know much more than you about politics of this country and Thai people.

And yes I will not dare to wear a fake red shirts…
And your friend is right they do shoot American journalist in South East Asia or abroad in general, like the Japanese cameraman was just killed in the first clash with the Thai Army…

I think this red color is blindsiding a lot of people…
Guys Open your eyes!

Thaksin is using Red Shirt movement you said Red Shirts are using Thaksin, it is not true…
Thaksin and his family are safe in Dubai…
Red Shirts are the ones that are paid 400 baht a day to protest and are the ones who die in the streets…
So it is so obvious…
