With love and bomb for ‘Anand’

From Matichon Weekly, July 30, 2010

The Thai part reads: With love and bomb for 'Anand'

[The article postulates that the Rajaprasong bombing is related to Red Shirt opposition to reconciliation efforts under the leadership of elder statesman Anand Panyarachun.

In the early 1990s Anand was twice appointed to the premiership as an internationally acceptable figure. At that time, we was seen as beyond the taint of political parties that were dominated by what amounted to regional mafia bosses. He was also instrumental in the drafting of the 1997 constitution.

This time, however, his international credentials and dedication to gradual, status-quo political development under the present system are derided by Red Shirts who seek more immediate and radical changes.]
