[This refers to the book by Nutthawut Saikua titled Boxing with the Different (older/senior) Generation. The cover shows Nutthawut wearing boxing gloves and implores people to fight against formerly revered figures in society. This is interesting as it mirrors the period of history between 1973 and 1976 where young people--particularly students--rebelled against teachers and other authority figures in an attempt to change ingrained Thai reverence for age and status.]
The quote on the article reads: The truth is that [if it is] a massacre or a sole murder, some old mentally ill man [referring to Gen. Prem] has thought [about it/planned it] for long time and Jit [the author] has heard of stories from the inside source [figure close the to Privy Council] who supports morality. I can see the whole pieces of the jigsaw--so clear that I can explain the "murder plan" in sequence.

[The photo bottom right shows Maj. Gen. Kattiya, who, at the time of this magazine earlier in February was being pushed forward to voice militant threats against the government. As it became clear the pro-Thaksin groups could neither organize a large protest nor an accompanying censure debate, Kattiya's exaggerated rhetoric became an embarrassment and his involvement with the movement has been downplayed.]
