Kooky Kasit Piromya Lashes Out at His Enemies

Bangkok Post

Foreign Minister Kasit Piromya on Sunday has challenged a group of army officials who wanted Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva to dismiss him for a televised debate. Mr Kasit, who has been charged with committing an act of terrorism by police, said he had enough of being criticised without substantial evidence by different sides.

The evidence is well, self-evident. He announced to the whole world in the front of foreign journalists that he took pride in the airport takeovers.

"I do not know who those army officials are, but I must ask why didn't they protect their country when former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra was ruining it," he said.

I guess Kasit forgot about the coup. By the way, Kasit had no problems working for Thaksin or taking his money.

The embattled minister said those who criticised him should reveal themselves.

"There are many evil politicians walking inside and outside the parliament, and why don't people pressure them to resign," he said.

None of them took over an airport, violating international law, and bragged about it.

Mr Kasit said he would like to ask Deputy Prime Minister Suthep Thaugsuban who actually wanted to harm Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva and People's Alliance for Democracy leader Sondhi Limthongkul.

Kasit is a loose cannon. In any civilized country, he would have been sacked. Interesting that the foreign minister is accusing the deputy prime minister for security for wanting to harm Abhisit.

Clearly, Abhisit doesn't have his government in order. So far, he has proven to be an incompetent manager.
