Turning on the people

From Thairath, October 13, 2020
Title: Their specialty job
On the bullet: IO operation
On the box: Budget from people’s taxes
Phi Nooring: Attack opposition parties
Mouse: Destroy people

[Refers to the Information Operation (IO) conducted by the military. This cartoon criticizes the military for operating fake news and spreading misinformation to attack the anti-government groups and opposition parties.
To show the army firing on protesters might have been seen as hyperbolic at the time the cartoon was published, but shortly after this, the government turned water cannons on peaceful protesters in a baffling and overconfident escalation of the situation.]
