Den aktuelle situasjonen i Thailand

Den thailandske hærsjefen erklærte torsdag 22. mai at de militære har overtatt makten i landet. Regjeringen er avsatt. 

Militært personell er utplassert på sentrale steder og det er innført portforbud mellom kl. 22.00 og 05.00. 

Passasjerer som skal til og fra flyplassene er unntatt fra portforbudet, men må kunne fremvise billettdokumentasjon og pass. Ansamlinger av grupper på flere enn 5 mennesker er ikke tillatt. Skytrain og undergrunnen slutter å gå kl. 21.00. Alle fjernsynskanaler er tatt av luften. Situasjonen i Bangkok og landet for øvrig er fortsatt rolig. Det er foreløpig ingen grunn til bekymring for norske borgere og interesser. Ambassaden følger situasjonen nøye.


All free TV stations which include Channel 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11 will be allowed to resume broadcasting their normal programmes this evening, secretary general of the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission Mr Thakorn Tanthasit said.

All free TV channels, except TPBS, will begin normal programmes on order of the National Peace and Order Maintaining Council director Gen Prayuth Chan-cha, he added.


The military junta issued the 21st announcement banning 155 politicians and individuals to leave the country.

The 155 persons are among the lists which it earlier summoned them to report to the National Peace and Order Maintaining Council.
Failing to report to the junta will face arrest, it said.
It was also reported that ex-Premier Yingluck Shinawatra also has reported to the junta at the Theves Army Auditorium with some cabinet ministers.

USA fryser militærhjelpen til Thailand og amerikanere oppfordres til å holde seg unna landet der de militære grep makten i et kupp denne uka, skriver nyhetsbyrået AFP. 21 millioner dollar i militærhjelp er nå frosset, og det utgjør rundt en tredel av den årlige militærhjelpen til landet.

My Opinion about this:

Foreigner we love the idea about democracy . And believe that this is possible in any country.
Yes it is possible where people are educated and understand ethics.

But what is you have someone that not understand ethics?
And not care about if they steal, cheat  behave in a way that we that is Christians belive in.

Because i follow things that The Bible say every day in my life .

The 10 Commandments

     You shall have no other gods before me.
     You shall not misuse the name of God.
     You shall keep the Sabbath day holy.
     Honor your father and your mother.
     You shall not murder.
     You shall not commit adultery.
     You shall not steal.
     You shall not speak false about your neighbor.
     You shall not covet your neighbor's property.
     You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his workers or others who belong to at your next.

 This is something i have found out some Thai people never hear about.
I believed before Thai people was so gentle and kind. But that picture i have found is untrue.

Corruption (Stealing) and lie and killing is something that Thai have no problem with.
And maybe that it is wrong for me to think this. But I belive Buddha never wanted Thaipeople to act in a way they do.

We western believe that democracy is possible in Thailand and many Country are now judging Thailand Coup junta.

I feel more safe now then before. Because bomb has been fired from cars . And i got no more then last week a bad experience where i suddenly where surrounded by protest people near The Norwegian embassy.
I had noway out and all Taxi where gone in 5 min. To have a Town for randsom as protest from both side do is not right.
To Protest is right when nobody lose life or get big problem in life. So to stop all this, was right by the General. 

But here is many thing that western not know.

First the General has been very respectful to all party when he has talked to all.

He tried to make people talk in meeting together but yellow side and redside was so "stubborn" and all wanted their view .
They was unable to talk and had many chances to fix problem. And They did not put The Country before their believe and their View. And that is not a right way to think.

The General has given chance so many times. But at the end he talk to red side 2 times . And ask them very nice to think about the country first. But Red side was unable to see other side then their side.

Even the yellow side talk to them very polite and nice they did not want to listen.
When the coup happen :

After long time the paries just shout and not see that their behavior hurt Thailand.
Protest hurt everyday life for people. All road closed.

Businesses lost money because of politic and Thailand have been hurting for 6 month.

I am not right to judge. But i have a right to my opinion.
And that is. 

People that misuse power and steal from other. Have no right to talk about democracy. Because their ways are not for other then themself. 
This General has though about Thailands people. And are now cleaning up after Yingluck goverment.
(Farmers are now paid for their ris)
He make all parties sit down and think about how to solve Thailands problem. And i will compare this to. When you have 2 kids that want the same toy. And start to fight.

Then an adult has to step in and make the fight end. And then take the toy from them.
Or make both share the toy in a good way.
And that is what have happen here.

This General is the adult. And think about other then himself. And by having big power he use it to solve the long conflict that have happen.

It is time to start acting like adult. And people that has done wrong, must face their punishment. Same as a kid would do if their have been fighting.

As a foreigner i support Thailands junta (General) because he did all in respect and a good way.
He has not hurt anybody. 
Red side has misused weapon and killed 27 people, and hurt almost 800 people. And that is why this General have had enough.

Also Red side has used CAPO to force their way and try to follow people that not have their belive.
And that is same as KGB in Russia did before.

In a democracy it is not a secret police that misuse power as red side has done. So the General did right to take out CAPO.

CAPO was made by Yingluck as an secret police to force and a tool for red side belive.
When i heared that the General had taken this unit out. I was so happy.

Also he talked directly to head of CAPO and said " Enough..... and talked to all people directly that has done wrong doing".

After sometime The General saw that nobody wanted to give in this conflict.

So he left the meeting and took all military leader to talk outside the room.

He asked the senate and election commission. And other the is needed to make new laws to leave the room.

The General then asked Redside " Do you want to think about leaving the power and let country find a better way".
He asked 2 times. But redshirt just said that he was in knee high water. And soon he would drown.

Then the General walked calm out, but before he left room he asked all to stay in their place.
And just gave a sign.

Then soldiers stormed the room.

And took all people away.

The redshirt people then blamed the yellow shirt " Why they not tell them that the General was serious"

Because they just laught of him when he talked to them.

I understand this General and he has my fully support. Thailand need to be reformed before election.

Because money is buying power. And that is not what democracy is about. That people that has money shall misuse and steal from other.

IT is time to think that some countries are not able to understand democracy same as USA and we in the western.
And the reason is that it is still some powerfull people that misuse their power. In a way that hurt Thai people.

So With that i ask also western to find the fact in this case. And see other side. Most of the newspapers has not done a good research in what really happen. Also they not speak thai som they not understand what have happen in this case.

Thailand need a strong leader that can make "The children that fight to stop fighting " and find a new way to play together.
