Not Voranai I know, stating the obvious I know ... It's a mess, and it's going to get messier
The military regime claimed that it had no choice but to seize power in the May 22, 2014 coup because of growing violence following the many years of political conflict.
Among its many promises were reform and reunification. It's true we have not experienced daily bombings, street protests or blockades of state offices. But can anybody, except hard-core fans of Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha who clap their hands in delight if he scolds a reporter, say with certainty that the political divide has diminished?
For the lack of a better word, the situation has become messy. For nearly two years, the military regime has replaced the political volatility with general disarray. Nothing seems to go as planned. The first draft charter was rejected by the military regime itself. The second is awash in criticism and may be voted down in a referendum. On the religious front, the senior monk tipped to become the next supreme patriarch is embroiled in a tax evasion case concerning his vintage Mercedes-Benz as his saffron-robed supporters clashed with military men. A monk owning a collectible Mercedes? What has happened to non-attachment and the pursuit of spiritual enlightenment?http://www.bangkokpost.com/opinion/opin ... et-messier
