PEOPLE POWER AND JAKRAPOB IN THAILAND

American educated Jakrapob.

People Power is usually organised by the security services of one country or another.

So, what about the demonstrations in Thailand in April 2009?

Have the usual spooky people infiltrated the Thaksin 'red' protest movement?

At this site: (แสดงความคิดเห็น) « www.prachatai.com เวบหนังสือพิมพ์ออนไลน์, we read that a Thai academic and politician, Chakrapob Phenkae (Jakrapob Penkair), has claimed that one of the people close to former Thai Prime Chuan Leekpai is an agent of the CIA.

"PRIME Minister Chuan Leekpai Monday urged an academic who claimed that one of Chuan's close aides was being paid by a CIA secret agent to name the person.

"Chakrapop Phenkae (Jakrapob Penkair), an academic and a television anchorman, Monday claimed that an MP from the Central region who is one of Chuan's close aides acts as a spy for the US.

"Chuan said he had no idea who Chakrapop (Jakrapob) was referring to or what Chakrapop's intention or motive might be. 'I do not know if the purpose is just to discredit someone. [Chakrapop] should reveal the name so that we can order a probe,' Chuan said."

"Chuan or Chakrapob
(Jakrapob) - who do you think is the CIA agent supporting Thaksin in a bid to distabilise the monarchy?"

On 15 April 2009, at Asia Times (Hong Kong), Shawn W Crispin wrote about the political situation in Thailand. (A battle won in Thailand's 'war')

Among the points made:

1. Former Thai prime minister Thaksin is now allied to US-educated Jakrapob Penkair, leader of the United Front for Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD).

Reportedly, Jakrapob was the brains behind the recent 'brinksmanship' by the 'red' protesters.



2. UDD supporters broke up an Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) meeting in Pattaya in April 2009 (where China had been planning to make important announcements about economic aid)

3. UDD claims there were "a lot of dead people" after the April 2009 Bangkok protests.

4. The military, under army commander General Anupong Paochinda, might decide to take power.

5. Thaksin surprised many by supporting the recent brinkmanship by the 'reds'.

Thaksin criticised members of King Bhumibol's advisory Privy Council, including Privy Council President Prem Tinsulanonda.

Reportedly, Jakrapob pushed Thaksin to take a tough line.

6. Thaksin alleged that Prem and his associate General Surayud Chulanont were among the masterminds of the 2006 coup.

7. Thaksin now seems to have joined Jakrapob in speaking out against the 'aristocracy'.

8.Thaksin called for a national uprising.

9. There could be trouble in the provinces.

10. Allegedly, Thaksin supporters, with the help of former communists, have been secretly transporting small arms through Cambodia to the northeastern provinces.

11. However, there are no indications that Thaksin would support an armed revolution.
