That should be dammed

From Thairath, March 3, 2014
Cartoon title: Curse to be damned…!
Left, a military officer representing Commander-in-Chief Prayuth: Thailand is a single kingdom that no one can divide. If any one does, he/she is a rebel. This land is sacred. Whoever thinks to do any harm will be damned. You may not believe, but don’t disrespect…
Mouse: Telling Kamnan to go home. [‘Kamnan’ refers to Suthep Thuagsuban, key leader of the anti-government demonstrators. This means he should leave the Bangkok protest.]
Phi Nooring: He’s just being sarcastic.
Middle, Phi Nooring: I believe it. Because the people who shut down Bangkok and governmental offices and causing damages to Thailand already became rebels.
Mouse: Telling Kamnan to go home.
Officer: See? Believe me now?
Right, Phi Nooring: And why those who send forces and weapons to help the rebels are not damned? [referring to suspicions that armed men who protect anti-government protest sites are military men]
Mouse: Telling Kamnan to go home.
[This cartoon contrasts the strong words of Army Chief Prayuth opposing Red Shirt separatism with the actions of anti-government protesters in Bangkok which the artist maintains are tantamount to separatism.]
