I am trying to recall when was the last time
another government resorted to ridiculous lying to its own people, why,
and what as the consequences.
The situation would be much worse if such a government had to hope to rely on their repeated or amended lies, one after another, following the needs to retreat in the face of evidences contradicting to their lies. But the lies keep on coming out of the sitting high authorities, through the state media.
If that wasn't Thailand, nor the Great Leap Forward and Cultural Revolution era China, where else could that be. why?
Just to illustrate a few, here they are:
1) Regarding the existence and roles of the "black clothed men" during the December 26 incidents at Thai-Japanese Stadium in Ding Daeng
Reports from the field by the media first indicated a cop and a protester were fatally shot by live-bullets along with 171 injured, many of them, including many policemen, by live bullets.
The issue: Where did those live bullets come from, whose guns?
The police: None of the 1800-2000 policemen dispatched to the site carried any guns or live bullets. This is lie number one.
This lie by police chief and the police spokesman was cracked almost instantly when international journalists and people at the site showed hundreds of photographs of police firing various types of guns and tossing grenades at protesters.
2. "Black clothed men" brought in to instigate angers and worsen violence
The issue: Did the black clothed men exist? Were they Thai policemen? Why were they there? Why did they had to attire in black rather than their regular police uniform?
Thai police: Nobody saw any black clothed men
Thai police had to concede to the existence of the black clothed men on the rooftop only after the photographs taken by some foreign photographers were shared in the facebook and in the world media.
Thai police: If black clothed men existed, they were part of the protesters, brought in to kill the police.
The Government's security adviser, Chalerm Yoobamlung: The black clothed men were the protesters brought up to the Labor's Ministry's rooftop by helicopters.
Later, Thai police chief: Yes, the black clothed men existed at the site, there were only 10 of them, they were there to observe the situation and to fire tear gas, they were unarmed otherwise.
Late, Thai police spokesman, showing mis-scaled 3-dimension maps: The police attired in black on the rooftop were had no angles to fire at the killed persons. (But he shrunken his illustration to conceal the actual distance of over 100 m between the buildings.
Most of the hundreds of journalists and photographers in the areas were positioned on the side of the protesters as they were not allow accesses on the police's side. However, there had been absolutely no reports of the sighting of any protesters carrying or using any kind of guns at all.
From all evidence collected, considering the motivation, capacity and opportunities to commit the crime of shooting the policemen and the protesters with live ammunition, I can only conclude that, since there has been no reports or proofs from any sources whatsoever that any protesters carried or used any guns on that day at that site while ample evidence showed Thai policemen and the black clothed men carried and used guns and had live ammunition delivered and stored at the site, it is only reasonable to say that only the policemen and the black clothed men can be the persons who fired at both the policemen and the protesters.
Since the black clothed men did exist and were positioned in the vantage point on the rooftop and were mixed in among the policemen when brutal assaults were carried out against the people. And, along with the later admission by police spokesman and police chief, it proves that the black clothed men was brought in by the police with the intention to gain advantages for their campaigns against the protesters. There had, thus far been no reasonable explanation as to the reason that the black clothed men should attire in black, if they were regular Thai policemen carrying out normal police duties. It goes to the weight of proving the ill intents of the police or Thai government in bringing in these black clothed men.
Considering Thai police leadership's past records, it is very convincing that they have brought in the black clothed killers to fire at Thai police to create angers among Thai police, while at the same time force the police, who might fear of being shot by the black clothed men, to do as the police boss and the government ordered, that is to terrorize the protesters with deaths and injuries.
In my brief review of history, only the very damned corrupted, sinister government could have come up with such dirty tricks and still trying to depend on such terrrible lies.
