Ultimate objectives of PAD

       a. PAD wants to get rid of corruptions. Thaksin, the billionaire civilian dictator, has left Thailand with extensive high level of corruptions and proxy politicians. Having cheated the country while in power, Thaksin hid his corrupt billion of dollars worth of assets overseas. When ousted, Thaksin is subjected to numerous convictions but cowardly fled jail overseas and pull strings on politicians to sabotage his homeland.

       b. PAD protects the Monarchy. Thaksin wants to launder himself through amending the laws with his proxy politicians, while trying to abolish the Monoarchy and make himself a President, that is to cause turmoils and change Thailand from being a "Kingdom" to a "Republic" in stead.

       c. As a permanent cure for Thailand, PAD wants to get real democracy for Thailand. At present it is a fake democracy with bad on-sale politicians.

       d. To achieve all above a, b, c we have to get rid of Thaksin and his proxy politicians and punish them according to the laws.

    Thaksin's Disgusting Letters

    ( Last edit 2009-06-11 )

    Govt confirms authenticity of letters
    The Nation - Breaking News July 12, 2006


    The government has confirmed the authenticity of caretaker Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra's letter to US President George W Bush and the latter's reply published in newspapers.

    "I don't know how the newspapers obtained the copies of Thaksin's letter and Bush's reply, but I can say both are genuine," government spokesman Surapong Suebwonglee said Wednesday (July 12, 2006).

    Surapong said Thaksin's letter showed that the prime minister wanted to report on the political events taking place since the beginning of the year and express confidence that a new election would be held successfully.

    Bush's reply affirmed his optimism about democratic rule in Thailand, Surapong said.


    Former Foreign Minister criticises Thaksin's letter to Bush

    Former Foreign Minister Surin Pitsuwan caretaker criticized Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra on Monday for writing a secret letter to US President George W Bush, saying Thaksin's action was simply to protect his own interests, and that in doing so he damaged the country's image.

    Surin questioned Thaksin's motives for writing the letter to Bush, branding him a hypocrite pretending to be a democratic leader.

    ''In the past five years in office, Thaksin has acted contrary to democratic norms. This is called hypocrisy and it is damaging to Thailand's image.''

    ''I believe the Thai people are entitled to know what their country's leader has done. If the prime minister insists his letter did not damage the country's interest and sovereignty, he ought to make it public,'' he said.

    The former foreign minister said Thaksin wanted to explain himself to the US leader for his own gain.

    ''It was a one-sided explanation which was meant for his own political gain since his government was faced with wide opposition in society," he said.



    Letters between Thai prime minister and US president

    Letter from caretaker Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra to US George W Bush.

    Office of the Prime Minister,

    Government House,
    Bangkok.
    23 June B.E. 2549 (2006)

    Dear Mr President,

    I write to you on the basis of my high personal regard for your and for your leadership to explain the current political situation in Thailand, where I recently assumed responsibilities as caretaker Prime Minister . It is my goal to prepare the best possible democratic path for the next government following new national elections this fall.

    There has been a threat to democracy in Thailand since early this year. Key democratic institutions, such as elections and their observance of Constitutional limitation on government, have been repeatedly undermined by interest that depend on creating chaos and mounting street demonstrations in Bangkok as a means to acquire political power that they cannot gain through winning elections. Having failed to provoke violence and disorder, my opponents are now attempting various extraConstitutional tactics to coopt the will of the people. If our democratic institutions provide strong over the next several months, these too will be unsuccessful.

    Letter to U.S. President George Bush: Press Thaksin on Extrajudicial Executions, Burma
    June 8, 2003

    President George W. Bush should use his June 10 meeting with Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra to raise concerns about the recent wave of extrajudicial killings in Thailand and the need for pressure on the Burmese military government to release Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, Human Rights Watch said in a letter today to the U.S. president.

    Human Rights Watch said that the United States should also focus on encouraging ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) to press for an end to political attacks on Suu Kyi and her supporters.

    "President Bush should make clear that the United States expects Thailand to observe due process in its war on drugs and to allow independent and credible investigations into the more than 2,000 killings in recent months, " said Brad Adams, Asia Division Director of Human Rights Watch. "Thailand must also assume its responsibility within ASEAN to address the attacks on Suu Kyi and her supporters and insist on genuine political reform."

    Thailand's status as one of the leading rights-respecting democracies in Southeast Asia has been called into question by its violent "war on drugs." In response to a spiraling problem of drug use and drug trafficking, Thai police have conducted an anti-drug campaign in recent months in which more than 2,000 persons have died in apparent extrajudicial killings and more than 50,000 have been arrested, many arbitrarily.

    The Thai government claims that 51 persons were killed by police in self-defense and the rest in internecine battles among drug dealers. Few in Thailand find this explanation credible. Somchai Homlaor, secretary-general of Forum Asia, the highly respected Bangkok-based human rights group, says, "In many provinces, there are death squads roaming around killing drug dealers. The rule of law and democracy could disappear overnight." Prime Minister Thaksin seemed to give his blessing to the killings when he said, "In this war, drug dealers must die."

    "While there is no doubt that there is a serious drug use problem in Thailand, it is the responsibility of Thai authorities to tackle the problem in ways that respect basic rights," said Adams. "This widespread use of violence represents a major step backwards to the dark days of military rule in Thailand."

    Human Rights Watch wrote President Bush that "Should the human rights violations continue and no independent and credible investigations are conducted into these killings, the United States should make it clear that it will have a significant impact on U.S.-Thai relations, including in the area of counter-narcotics, and call into question the leadership role Thailand has assumed in the region."

    Human Rights Watch also called on President Bush to ask Prime Minister Thaksin to take strong steps in public and private to insist to the military government in Burma that it end the persecution of its political opponents and take concrete and good-faith steps towards political reforms. The recent violence against Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and her supporters, and the refusal of the Burmese government to allow a U.N. envoy to meet Suu Kyi, are unacceptable.

    Human Rights Watch said it welcomed the administration's strong statement condemning the violence and the investigation of the State Department into the events of May 30--and its candid conclusions of state responsibility.

    "A cornerstone of ASEAN is its policy of non-interference in the internal affairs of member states," Adams said in the letter. "The governments in Burma, Thailand and other ASEAN states have insisted that private diplomacy would nurture a process of political reform. Both non-interference and private diplomacy have failed, and in the process embarrassed ASEAN and threatened regional stability."

    Human Rights Watch urged President Bush to tell Prime Minister Thaksin that the United States expects Thailand to take a leadership role in insisting to the military government in Rangoon that it make good on its promises of political reform. These reforms must include a genuine dialogue with Aung San Suu Kyi and the National League for Democracy, the release of political prisoners and detainees, an end to forced labor and the use of child soldiers, and a halt to offensive military activities against ethnic minority groups that have resulted in large-scale death, injury and displacement for the civilian population.

    Comment: Instead of actions to encourage human rights in Burma/Myanmar, Thaksin favourably granted very special deal loan from state-own Exim bank to Myanmar's military regime to, in return, purchase his conglomerate telecommunication products. Thaksin also manipulates news coverage, canceled critical television and radio commentary shows and allowed his political and business allies to take over media companies.

    On April 2, my Party, Thai Rak Thai, won a convincing majority in countrywide elections. Having led Thailand's government for over five years and won decisive victories in two previous national elections, I was confident of strong popular support and the voters confirmed the view. My political opponents because they know they would again lose, boycotted the April elections and left the political situation in Thailand in deadlock. With the imminent celebration of the 60th Anniversary of our King's coronation, I would not responsibly allow this political stalemate the mar this historic occasion . In order to restore calm so that preparations for the royal celebration could proceed, I stopped aside to take a leave of absence, assigning my Deputy Prime Minister with acting executive responsibilities.

    In keeping with their independent status, Thai courts have since annulled the April elections on technical considerations and ruled that a new national vote be scheduled, probably in midOctober. Most objective observers believe that my Party will again receive the people's mandate to form a government. In the meantime, I could not allow my country to drift without leadership. Our ongoing war on terror must be prosecuted, our economy must be managed, and the basic functions of government must be carried out. For these reasons, I have heeded the calls of many Thais - both within my Party and among the oppositions as well - to resume an active role as caretaker Prime Minister.

    Thaksin always used to win without a fair competition. Though Thaksin may call it technical consideration by the court to annul the TRT's victorius April 2006's general elections, others call it unfair. The opposition parties, the media, the public and the courts agree that it was only Thaksin's personal scandals, not the parliamentary conflict but he cunningly dissolved the house and called an immediate 37 days to ballot in the national general election.

    Later, on May 30, 2007, based on the 1997 Constitution and the long existed Electoral Act, the Constitution Tribunal found TRT party and its directors guilty of electoral frauds in hiring other small parties to falsify fair election contests in several provinces where the Democrat and Chart Thai opposition parties boycotted. As well, the directors of TRT were found guilty of several other frauds to get TRT candidates qualified in time for the general election. Thus, due to the malicious and undemocratic attempts to win the power by TRT party, the Constitution Tribunal sentenced a dissolution of Thaksin's TRT party.

    During this period, I want to assure you that I will take steps to help got the country ready for free and fair elections, and to work to shift the national debate from one that is emotionally charged to one that reasonably discusses the central questions of Thailand's future, including whether the country's political governance will be decided through the ballot box or in the street. The answer to that question, Mr President, will have an important impact on the future course of democracy in Asia. I know that your agree with me that the rule of law and Constitutional order in Thailand and in Asia more broadly must prevail over demagoguery and mob action.

    Finally, Mr President, please accept my enduring confidence that the relationship between Thailand and the United States, based on shared democratic values and vital national interests, will only grow in the months and years ahead.

    Yours sincerely,

    (Thaksin Shinawatra)
    Prime Minister of Thailand

    However, President Bush declines by addtressing the Thaksin as "Prime Minister of Kingdom of Thailand" ... USA still recognizes Thailand as a kingdom with constitutional Monarchy ....

    Open Letter To Barack H. Obama
    To Barack H. Obama
    The 44th President of the United States


    Yours Excellency:

    Firstly we, Thai people in red shirt, believe that your political concepts building from the great national founders of the United States of America. The most famous part of Abraham Lincoln speech is the "government of the people - by the people - for the people". You also delivered your historic acceptance speech of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on August 28, 1963 that “I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up, live out the true meaning of its creed. We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal", where hundreds of thousands of people came to Washington, D.C. They came to march for jobs, and for freedom, and for equality.

    Please look onto Thai Democracy development, The Thai Revolution of 1932 or the Siamese Coup d'état of 1932 was a bloodless transition on the 24 June 1932, which the system of government in Thai was changed from an absolute monarchy to a constitutional monarchy. Since then the fake democracy have been developed by the elite and military who playing a role more than 16 times in toppling governments until now. Many times military suppresses Thai activists and students that requesting for freedom and real democracy. In the October 14, 1973 period, 77 people were killed and 857 wounded. On October 6, 1976, around 500 were killed and 11,000 arrested. In May 1992 period, 52 people were killed, many disappearances, hundreds of injuries, and over 3,500 arrested. Many of those arrested were tortured.

    During Thaksin's PM's term alone, there were about 3,000 unaccountable deaths due to Thaksin's policy on drugs which could be results of police-state murders without fair trials for the suspects. There was a military weapon storming to massacre 28 civillian Muslim youths in Masjid Kru Se, Town district, Pattani province and a massacre of more than 100 Muslim civillians during the fasting month of Ramadan in front of a police station at Takbai district Narathiwas province. An eminent Muslim lawyer, Somchai Neelapaijit, was abducted and diappeared in relation to a police team secretive operation. More of severe human rights violation in the three southernmost provinces during Thaksin's PM escalated more and more violence. CLICK FOR Atrosity Against Muslims by Thaksin

    As of October 6, 1976 mentioned in the lies above, it was Thaksin who invited Samak Sundaravej, the military-supporter right-wing advocate of students massacre on October 6, 1976, to lead his puppet party PPP. CLICK FOR Samak, the Advocate of Massacre

    During PM term of Somchai brother-in-law, puppet of Thaksin, on October 7, 2008, the day of the PM's policy speech, two civillians were killed, a dozen limbs were shattered and seven hundred more injured from police teargas explosives in a dispersal of the rally near the House of Parliament. CLICK FOR Somchai, the Murderer

    It has been widely reported in Thailand and global news that General Prem Tinsulanont, Privy Council head, who had made a fake democracy for long and backing the current government now, was politically naked. Before The 2006 Thailand coup, he had rally set his speaking at military institutes to against the elected government. Then he also was a person backing the yellow-shirted people that starting anti-government, led by Sondhi Limthongkul as a news media, whose missions were to overthrow the Thaksin government. [1]

    The reasons why people have risen up against Thaksin regime was his extensive corruptions and abuse of power, violation of human rights and repressing media. Only General Prem, Sondhi, or anybody else in the whole army would never be able to overthrow Thaksin if he is decent.

    As followed, General Sonti Boonyaratklin staged a coup d'état against the elected government of caretaker Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra. Then Constitution Law of 1997 had been replaced by the new ones of 2007. It means that fake democracy now legitimated and executed on the path of the conspiracy of political evil-elite network, formed by elite’s royalist, military, Democrat party, media and some academics. Political turmoil had continued since the leaders of the coup returned the country to democracy early last year and Mr. Thaksin’s supporters were voted back into office as Samak government. [2]

    Therefore, Sondhi again, as a leader of anti-government protesters, started to protest and seized Government House, attacked NBT TV station, blocked Parliament Meeting, attacked the Police Head Office of Bangkok, and blocked trains and Bangkok seaport, and finally turning to be PAD terrorist, seized Suvarnaphumi International Airport and Bangkok Airport. It is surprisingly that no proceed on legal has been resulted for penalty yet.[3]

    The network overthrew Samak and Somchai governments by any means (including the injustice court rulings), and help setting up the current coalition government nastily, through military intervention. That is 77 years for our fake democracy since the first coup.
    [4]

    On April 8, 2009, The March, more than 100,000 people, on Bangkok calling for democracy was the largest gathering of red-shirt protesters in Thailand's history. What we protest is that we are not accepted the "government of the political evil-elite network - by military - for the political evil-elite network ". Even though we, Thai people in red shirt, believe that the method of nonviolent resistance to government is the most potent weapon available to oppressed people in their struggle for justice, freedom and equality. But it may turn to the people revolution in Thailand if the people could not endure to injustices and economic conditions. [5]

    We urge US government as representative of American people who adore true democracy to support our democracy and social justice in Thailand. Since all events in killing the Thai people said above are surprisingly legitimacy in Thailand, but Thai political and military men said that was internal affairs. And now 7 people were killed this morning. So, Thailand needs change. The support of your Excellency shall be highly appreciated.[6]

    Yours Excellency, we remain
    Sincerely,

    Thai people in Red-shirt Groups for Democracy

Somchai, the Murderer

    [1] The reasons why people have risen up against Thaksin regime was his extensive corruptions and abuse of power, violation of human rights and repressing media. Only General Prem, Sondhi, or anybody else would never be able to overthrow Thaksin if he is decent.

    [2] Why Samak and Thaksin's puppet party (People's Power party) won the election was because of electoral frauds as proved by the Electoral Committee and the Constitutional court. The verdict led to the dissolution of PPP in the successive Somchai's government.

    [3] The National Police Office announced that as of April 15, 2009 a total of 240 legal proceedings have been filed against PAD yellow-shirts, whereas a total of 109 legal proceedings have been filed against UDD/DAAD red-shirts.

    [4] The justice system which reached the verdicts of impeachment of Samak and disbanding of PPP, comprises of several bodies i,e., EC, NCCC, the Attorney General and the Constitution Court which have carried out transparent and fair trials. Samak, having been impeached by the Court, was not re-elected by the MPs of PPP in his own party because the actual owner of the party was Thaksin who turned him down. Samak was just another powerless puppet. The director of PPP, Yongyuth Tiyapairat obviously had managed a large scale vote-buying in the north and got caught on VDOs as well as confirmed by witnesses.

    Lawyers Council of Thailand's Announcement on October 31, 2008 obviously counters all Thaksin's claims.

    The formation of Abhisit's government follows due parliamentary processes because of the split of the coalition led by the dissolved People's Power party to form a new coalition led by Democrat party. Apart from most of the poppular polls supporting Democrat party, the new coalition won more seats in the rural areas over Thaksin's latest puppet party, Pua-Thai, in the recent by-election. The arranngement by the military connection is a rumour raised by Thaksin, and is not illegal by any means.

    [5] It is welknown both domestic and international that red-shirts were the violent aggressors and the responsible top leader was Thaksin, who deserves an official international condemnation even from US government.
