Fooling the Buffaloes

From Thairath, April 25, 2012
The cartoon headline reads: Using the dead to hurt the living – Getting the Red Dhirts to break from Pheu Thai
On the hooded figure: Ordering people killed
On the headband: UDD
On Jatuporn’s shirt: Pheu Thai
Left mouse: The party is good at persuading
Right mouse: Punish those who ordered the killings

From Manager, April 30, 2012
Nattawut: Some buffaloes have learned we created the story of elites to cheat them from the start!
Jatuporn: Right, they’ve started looking at us strangely!
Tida: What else can we use to cheat them with?
The caption reads: Crisis among buffalo keepers
[In the Thai world, referring to a person as a “buffalo” is an insult that denotes stupidity. Here is it used to refer to Red Shirt supporters who are surprised their leadership are following Thaksin’s lead that all should “forgive and forget” as part of the political bargaining to enable Thaksin to return to Thailand.]
