Plot to kill Prime Minister Prayuth

Post by Big Boy » Mon Mar 20, 2017 12:29 pm

Thai police said that on Sunday they uncovered a plot to assassinate the country’s prime minister after seizing a weapons cache belonging to a fugitive anti-junta activist.

It is the latest discovery of a weapon stockpile belonging to a member of the red shirt movement, a political group loyal to exiled Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra.

Police on Saturday found dozens of rifles and grenades, and thousands of rounds of ammunition, at a house belonging to red shirt leader Wuthipong Kochathamakun, who has been on the run since the military coup.

doesn't prove that there was an assasintion planned--you don't need thousands of rounds for an assasination. one shooter, one gun, one bullet.

Let's hope the government does not take the Turkish approach to this.

I wonder why they decided to search this guy's house three years after he evaded justice on another charge.

Quite possibly, this is a very good way to get sympathy support.

I think you could be right but when you think about it, leading a military dictatorship is a strange career choice for anyone who likes sympathy, I don't think there is a chapter in Mein Kampf about it!

the chapter you're looking for in mein kampf is called Leviticus.

or perhaps making a death threat against the military leadership would generate support for the threateners.

That's not for one man, it's the start of a revolution.
