Song: …Give us a little more time, and then the beautiful land will return… We’ll do it honestly. Just trust in us and believe in us… The land will become fine soon…let us return happiness to you, the people… [This is part of the National Council for Peace and Order’s theme song]
Caption: In the three provinces in the deep South… this song may not be a hit.
[Reference is to a catastrophic car bomb incident in Betong District, in Yala Province on July 25. Betong used to be one of the most peaceful places in the deep three southern provinces mostly because of its knit-tight security system, the so-called “pineapple eye network” organized by local people.]
