Here people have died

From Daily News, Cartoon Khaprajam By Khuad, November 19, 2010
Left: The famous speech from Prime Minister Samak states “fear leads to decline”
Middle: What he mentioned is correct as many samples are visible”
Right: Someone “fears” death and needs men to protect his residential site causing the business in the community to be totally dead and causing those supporters to “drop” their likeness. [The words on the street sign read "Sukhumvit31." The cartoon means that security for Prime Minister Abhisit's residence on the street he lives in is ruining businesses on the street and resulting in lack of support for him.]
