On the eve of their big protest march, Tony Cartalucci and his fellow Yellow-shirts in Thailand seem to be calling for military intervention to solve the countries troubles.
It’s kind of funny because the crisis they are calling on the military to solve for them, was actually caused by them since the opposition refuses to handle their differences either by holding a new election for the House which the elected government has offered, and they have also refused to put the matter to the people for a referendum. Nothing but regime change and an “unelected council of the people” will do for the middle class Yellow-shirts and their out of power Democratic Party.
I’ve been going back and forth with Tony today over his support of the color revolution taking place in Thailand right now and while I was doing a little research I ran across this article, from Tony, posted on Global Research of all places. The article is one flat-out lie after another. It’s remarkable in that respect.
He rants like Glen Beck accusing Thaksin and his sister of everything but the JFK assassination. It is QUITE THE THING TO READ. My God, he sounds like Tom Friedman from the New York Times begging for war in Iraq.
But what Tony Cartalucci is begging for is another Egyptian style military coup, this one in Thailand.
The things he says in this article are unbelievable:
“Like the Egyptian and even Pakistani armies, they are more than willing to take funding, training, and weapons, and still carry on with an independent agenda. ” Tony Cartalucci
Holy shit. Independent agenda? Are you kidding me? The Pakistani military and the Egyptian military are completely in bed with the U.S. That’s got to be a joke right?
It gets worse:
Tony cites what he himself calls a survey taken by a CIA created foundation back in 2010 to insinuate the Red-shirts (backers of elected government) are only 14% of the population which is completely absurd. The fact that he draws that conclusion from a CIA backed poll without question is astounding… but then he also comes up with this little gem:
“More importantly, it was revealed that many more Thais (62%) believed the Thai military, who ousted Thaksin Shinawatra from power in 2006 in a bloodless coup, and who put down two pro-Thaksin insurrections in 2009 and 2010, was an important independent institution that has helped safeguard and stabilize the country.” Tony Cartalucci
I have to wonder if Tony has been snatched up by the Thai military and is being forced to blog from a cell somewhere. My guess is, the Thai secret service are a bunch of guys you really don’t want to fuck with. Just a guess though
That statement of Tony’s is so full of fail, it’s hard to know where to start.
The “insurrections” Tony is talking about where popular resistance movements against the brutal juntas set up by the military. People died in those protests in 2009 and 2010 and eventually the corrupt leader had to step down so elections could take place in 2011.
When Tony says it was a “bloodless coup” and then says the military helped safeguard and stabilize the country, this is how they did it, it’s much the same process as we see developing in Egypt right this very moment:
” It has been widely reported in Thailand and elsewhere that General Prem Tinsulanonda, Chairman of the Privy Council, was the mastermind of the Coup. The military cancelled the upcoming elections, abrogated the Constitution, dissolved Parliament and Constitutional Court, banned protests and all political activities, suppressed and censored the media, declared martial law nationwide, and arrested Cabinet members.”
They shut down the radio, television stations, the printed press and even websites.
Yeah, really looking out for the people on that one, right? Amazing they seemed to fear the backlash from that 14% of the population so much that they had to go through all that.
Tony, in his article laughingly published on Global Research (an anti-war, anti-regime change website), goes all out in the end to openly call for a military coup against the elected government of Thailand. Not only that, but he openly calls for more military coups across the globe saying the “line” between governance that you don’t like and using the brute force of the paid military is just imaginary.
The military of any nation is authorized and in fact duty-bound to guard against all enemies, foreign and domestic. In the case of Wall Street-backed Thaksin Shinawatra, there exists a potent foreign and domestic threat in one regime. It is a threat that must be met, if possible with as little intervention as possible from the military, but with full commitment if necessary.
Thailand has set an example by which other nation’s armed forces should follow. The imaginary line drawn between unhinged corruption and inevitable national tragedy, and the military being able to intervene is just that, imaginary.” Tony Cartalucci
Wow. So anywhere that democracy gets in the way of the wishes of the oligarchs and the wanna-bes, the military should feel free to step in and shut down the nation.
Hell, why not. They just did it in Egypt to the cheers of ‘alternative” writers like Tony Cartalucci and Glen Beck as well.
So why not? Obamacover seems to be working well enough right now. Of course, the moment they start talking about humanitarian interventions, the gig is up. But so long as it’s the countries own military crushing dissent and removing elected governments, everything should be just fine.
Too bad Tony doesn’t live in Syria, huh?
Tony posted this call to arms of his tonight, Sunday night, just before the “Judgement Day” march of his tomorrow (Monday)
My guess is, the march organizers expect turnout to be low as their efforts have been exposed for what they are by them refusing to work with the government on solving their issues. So, they intend to see to it that there is some bloodshed which they can use to justify calling for the military to step in and resolve the “crisis” that they themselves are currently making.
If that is the case, then this little screed by Tony posted at the last minute like it was, seems awfully suspicious, doesn’t it? Almost as if he’s priming the pot in the alternative community for just such a series of events.
I guess we’ll see tomorrow won’t we Tony?
