'I Didn't Expect This' -Thaksin

"I didn't expect that this will happen. I came here as prime minister but left as an unemployed man. "That's fine that no one gives me a job. I volunteered to work but the didn't want to give me (the) job, so it's fine."

— Ousted Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, as he left the United Nations meetings in New York early on Sep. 20. He has arrived in London, and so have members of his family.

Thai Coup Leaders List 'Sins' of Thaksin Gov't

"The current government administration has caused conflicts and undermined the harmony of the people as never before in history. Each side is determined to win by any means, and discord has shown a tendency to escalate.

Many people have been suspicious about the actions of the national administration under a constitutional monarchy.

The nation has been governed in a corrupt manner. Independent agencies have been dominated by politics. The constitutional intention is unserved.

This has led to political activities becoming problem-plagued on many fronts and the siutation had worsened to the point where violations against His Majesty the King are in danger of occurring. This is despite efforts by many sections of society to resolve the problem. The efforts have been pacified the growing tension, however. For this reason, the Democratic Reform Council with the monarch as its head, with comprises the armed forces leaders and chief of the Royal Thai Police office, has found it imperative to seize the power of government from this point onward. The council is steadfast in its objective, which is not to take over the government permanently and it will return power to the people as soon as possible.

The council is committed to preserving peace and security and to upholding the monarchy.

— Sep 20 statement by the Administrative Reform Council, which carried out a military coup against Thaksin Shinawatra on the evening of Sep. 19, 2006.

Japan in the War

"It is our obligation as Japan's most influential newspaper to tell our readers who was responsible for starting the Sino-Japanese War and the Pacific War."


Tsuneo Watanabe, editor-in-chief of the 'Yomiuri Shimbun' in the introduction to the book 'From Marco Polo Bridge to Pearl Harbour: Who Was Responsible'.

A Transparent Dictatorship

"I agree with Gen Surayud Chulanont that this (military-installed) government is transparent. It's transparently a dictatorship."

— -Giles Ungpakorn, professor at Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand

'I Disagree'

"I disagree with the coup. The problem was Thaksin (Shinawatra) but it was resolved by tearing apart the Constitution. It's not right."

  


Thanaphol Eiwsakul, editor of 'Fah Diew Kan' magazine who pledged to hold protests against the Sep. 19 coup in Thailand.

Tsunami Anniversary quote

"There are no ghosts here. If there are indeed ghosts, I'd be the first one to be haunted, because I was here when it happened, and afterwards I was still here, touching and moving dead bodies. I assure you, I have never seen even one restless spirit."

— Manop Kongkao-Riab, village leader on Phi Phi Island

Vallop Suwandee's quote on Bangkok's street food vendors

"Tourists who visit Bangkok want to see temples, not taste street food... We can't promote tourism with them around, because we need to show the international world that Bangkok is a clean city, even though street food is a part of Thai life. These vendors cannot expect to have total freedom at the cost of cleanliness and order. They should have more discipline."


Vallop Suwandee, Deputy Governor of Bangkok

U.N. Special Envoy to Burma, Razali Ismail

"I don't see any parallels between Myanmar (Burma) and Iraq. Iraq is a very bad case where unilateralism was allowed to happen... Nobody is talking about taking unilateral action (against Burma)."

— Razali Ismail, U.N. Special Envoy to Burma

Achain Vanaik's quote on Pakistan's refusal to accept Indian aid for quake victims

"This is nothing but euphemism for the irrational fear that accepting aid from India will be seen to be a sign of Pakistani 'weakness'. The view is based on a false sense of national 'pride' and 'prestige' and puts the defence of Pakistan's 'image' above securing its citizens' lives."

— Achain Vanaik, professor of international relations and global politics at Delhi University.
