yellow shirts and anti Thaksin forces.
Boss party, palace eunuchs and the traditional power ruling class.

no intention to cede power after losing election, why have elections in the first place?

6 years of Thaksin rule, shows the poor people how to do it, how it should be done. Won over their trust which lasts until now.

economic recovery under Thaksin was going well until a rude military coup and yellow shirts in the street.

until Thaksin came along, Thailand never have a strong politician. Thaksin was the first politician in Thailand history who can win absolute majorities without the need for coalition partners,. scares the hell out of the status quo people.

the thing is, status quo with military interference, boss party and changing of laws to suit the boss party  is not what the people want.

Thaksin brother and sister team will break the back of the traditional power structure and make Thailand truly a Rule of Law country. A fairer Thailand for the poor. There is high hopes for Yingluck and Yingluck will deliver.

The point is,

Before Thaksin, Thais has never shown any interest in politics. Every politician is considered a thief. Thaksin changed all that and so they throw corruption charges at him.

The response of the red shirt is simple,

"every politician is a thief
but at least Thaksin shared and Thaksin took good care of the poor."

BANGKOK — A bloody crackdown in Bangkok by the Thai military set off rioting and arson attacks on Wednesday in several places across Thailand, threatening to expand unrest and further aggravate the deep rifts that have hobbled Thai society for the past four years.

Troops and armored military vehicles overcame grenade-wielding militants allied with antigovernment protesters in Bangkok, forcing the movement’s leaders to turn themselves in to the police.

But even as the government declared victory in quashing a debilitating protest that had shut down parts of Bangkok for two months, the rampage across Bangkok and in at least three provinces in the country’s populous northeastern hinterland raised concerns about the conflict’s spreading and the future of the current government.

The government declared a curfew in 24 of the country’s 76 provinces, a radical move underlined by its announcement that looters or arsonists would be shot.

Arsonists in Bangkok set fire to almost 30 buildings, the government said, including the country’s stock exchange, a massive shopping mall, two banks, a movie theater and a television station. Two city halls were set on fire in the provincial capitals when thousands of protesters reacted to news of the Bangkok crackdown.

It was a measure of Thailand’s spiraling political violence that the death toll in the crackdown — about 12 people killed and more than 60 injured — was less than the bloodbath that many had feared.
