Thai junta now on Facebook

Thailand's National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) is now on Facebook.

As of 1 p.m. on Thursday, June 5, the Thai-language page gained 321,770 likes, with 46,972 talking about it.

A comment posted by a Thai male reader says: “Take all of them (supporters of ex-premier Thaksin Shinawatra) to re-education camps. Teach them to love the country. All these ungrateful people!”

A female reader comments: “They are all trouble-makers. Wonder how many of them dare to show up and report to the NCPO.”

Another male reader chimes in with a blunt message: “Put them all in jail – these anti-monarchists.”

Another female reader heaped praise on the junta: “They have done much better than an elected government. Politicians are only good at talking, but soldiers are real doers.”
