Who destroys the country?


From Thairath, June 3, 2016
Title: Who does destroy it? [Refers to the lifting of the travel ban imposed on certain politicians after the military seized power two years ago.
Man at left (we think this is Minister of Foreign Affairs Don Pramudwinai): If you love the country, you mustn’t say things that destroy the country. A person who destroys the county doesn’t love the country.
[This refers to junta admonitions to Pheu Thai politicians who are now allowed to travel abroad.]
On the paper: Return happiness to people going aboard [this jokingly refers to the junta’s slogan “return happiness to the people”]
Man on right: They don’t say things to destroy the country. Yet, they only say that those who govern the country destroy it. [meaning critics are only saying that the rule of the junta is destroying the country]
On the sign: The NCPO lifts the ban of going aboard
Phi Nooring: Violating people’s rights since the beginning
Mouse: Doing a good thing [meaning that being critical of the military is good thing]
