    Thailand People Uprising

    Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra held a press conference today during which she steadfastly confirmed the validity of her administration and pledged not to use any force against the demonstrators. She made an appeal to the protesters and core leaders to come to an acceptable solution through negotiation. She pointed out that what the People had requested, government by people referendum, had no viable Constitution base. It is ironic that many members of her own administration had just announced their intention not to honor the ruling of The Constitutional Court barely two weeks ago.
    It should be obvious to the world that her administration will only cited The Constitution when it serves the purpose of helping them stay in power and continue to behave like barbaric dictatorship.
    During the conference, the police force continued to tear-gassing the protesters who now concentrated at two major police strongholds. The Royal Thai Police and The Metropolitan Police headquarter. The government's only strong support is now coming from the most corrupted branch of authority, the police. Many of the top police officers are well known and even self-acclaimed servants of the fugitive ex-prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra.
    How all this going to turn out is still anybody's guess. If the military still side with the people the police will not be able to use brutal and decisive force. There are news and rumors abound that Thaksin is investing great sum of money in the tune of 6 billion bahts to persuade those in powers to come to his sister's aide.
    Let us wait and see if the future of Thailand, the future of our children and grand-children can be collectively bought with just that amount of stolen loots.
