Lest we forget: His "war on drugs" saw 2,873 Thais dead in a matter of three months, from February to April, 2003. The victims included whole families, women, children and old people. In many cases, bodies were left out in the open in an almost ritualistic public display, to be photographed by an all too eager local press. An investigative report by the UK's Sunday Times, in 2008, said: "Police and local authorities drew up so-called blacklists of drug suspects which were submitted to the Ministry of Interior." The Times obtained an official letter sent by the ministry to provincial governors, explaining the three ways to remove names from the lists: "Arrest, extrajudicial killing or loss of life [death for various reasons]. Drug dealers are traitors to the nation. We have to get rid of them. Don't give them mercy." ...
When secretary-general Kofi Anan nominated a rapporteur to investigate these gross human rights abuses, Thaksin's angry response was "the UN is not my father". Other international human rights organisations denounced the "war" as one of the worst cases of human rights abuse in recent times. Eventually, the UN Commission on Human Rights asked the Thai government to explain some 23 cases of abuse from mass killings to deaths and disappearances of rights defenders, like lawyer Somchai Neelapaijit.

The goals Suthep Thaugsuban aims for are clear, at least the ones he announces from the stage. The means to achieve those goals are muddier than Saen Saep canal at low tide.

My mind is very disturbed with the thoughts about your claim that I am bringing propaganda in support of fascism to this forum. Could you please help me by quoting where have I wrote such fascist propaganda? Sincerely, if I have really said those terrible things that you claim, I would like to be educated and rectify it. But right now I am not able to see it.
