  1. "these ppl are here coz they love their countryand HMK..."

    what a SHAMELESS BS !

    they are TERRORISTS who in any other civilized country would have been jailed long time ago!
    they RUIN the country by their actions !

    and even more disgusting that they use HMK's name as a justification for their actions !

    they are NOT peaceful - they are THUGS, organized and armed mob!

    guy who lost his leg - is stupid f***er who played with his home-made ping-pong bomb !
    that will teach him well how to play with explosives !

    and yet Thai media raised an outraged howl : "oh, blood-thirsty government"... they have no any decency to TWIST the true facts like that !

    "we will win" - - just look at these guys, typical chinese-thai who represent 99% of Thai elite and hi-so ! sure, you'll win, f***er ! and then what? then REAL Panthamit will rise - the true PEOPLE power, from rural areas and provinces. and then we'll see what you'll say !

    SHAME on PAD and all the hi-so elite which supports it !
