A junta shuts down a nations data networks
"On saturday. Myanmar's ministry of transport and communications directed that all mobile operators serving the country blocked the nation's data network voice and sms. services will remain available tech crunch reports. The general interdiction of data services follows earlier decisions by the country's new military government to block. I facebook and instagram and twitter. The ruling junta has sought to tamp down opportunities for mobilization of dissent and opposition since it took power in a coup last month the grey zone podcast yesterday featured an interview with g h q director jeremy fleming and general sir patrick sanders head of the. Uk's strategic command also responsible for military cyber operations in which they described britain cyber operations against isis british cyber forces disrupted the terrorist groups drone operations denied their operators mobile service and interfered with online propaganda. The campaign by britain's national cyber forces most active in two thousand sixteen and twenty seventeen is sky. News says the. Uk's only publicly avowed offensive cyber operation to date the counter propaganda influence. Operation is in some ways the most interesting intrusive of the efforts fleming is quoted as saying we prevented their propaganda both through physical actions on the battlefield but also remotely getting to their servers getting to the places. They stored their material and quote the intrusion into isis networks extended to locking isis members. Out of accounts deleting or altering the group's information and taking down online posts and videos general sanders said quote. We wanted to ensure that when they tried to coordinate attacks on our forces their devices didn't work that they couldn't trust the orders that were coming to them their seniors and quote. He added that. Deception and misdirection were important ways of degrading isis combat power tactically british cyber operators said to have been working closely with allies including the us were able to block isis commanders orders from reaching subordinates. And we're also able to misdirect isis forces on the ground. In some cases sending their units into kill zones. It was general. Sanders explained a combined arms multi domain effort. The cyber operations didn't stand on their own. He said quote we wanted to deceive them and to misdirect them to make them less. Effective less cohesive and sap them morale. But you can't just do that in cyberspace. You have to coordinate and integrate that with activities that are going on on the ground whether it's from our own forces special forces and others and quote former director of the us cybersecurity and infrastructure security agency. Chris crabs drew some press attention over the weekend with an interview. He gave the financial times the headline in the media outlet. Silicon is representative quote ex.

Hackers it says which suggests a brace of thomas hawks prancing downtown to hit a gregor extortionists in their parents or maybe pre dawn vertical insertion of a ranger battalion to put paid to the ragnar locker gang in whatever tacky cybercafe. They're using but a close reading or actually a pretty casual reading of krebs remarks indicates that he's pretty much closer in his thinking to ghg cues fleming than he is to say. Curtis lemay or george patton. His point is that ransomware is sufficiently destructive and costly to make it worth governments wild to actively disrupt the gangs operations military cyber units like us cyber command. The uk's national cyber force have disruptive capabilities law enforcement organizations don't and it might be useful to think about how they might be used if at all there may be decisive legal objections to doing so on the other hand. There might be some legal models under which that kind of action might be legitimately organized. What if ransomware actors could be treated like pirates for example new post reports that kaspersky has discerned new activity by the crew using the silent fade. Malware silent fade is an online ad fraud operation that kaspersky has observed resurgent against victims in asia and europe. They'll be worth watching. The silent fade.

Red flags there. I mean the state information center is part of the deal. I don't know what you'd be worried now all right. Let's talk a little more about that. A little more about the information given some some details on apple's alleged upcoming mixed reality headset sources have more details including a rendering this time of what they say is apple's vr headset. A lot of the details are similar to what we heard from mark gurman of bloomberg earlier last month It's expected to use fabric. Mesh run on an apple design chip cost a lot. Although we've got a number as much as three thousand dollars the headset may have more than a dozen cameras for hand. Tracking lied are sensors for room. Mapping and a are affects dual eight k displays and i tracking to save battery life. The information sources says apple would use aided rendering. that's when you only render in full resolution. What your eyes are looking at everything. In the periphery can be a little lower sources. Say apple has not finalized input control but the options. They're considering are a combination of hand tracking i tracking a dial on the headset or something. They call a thimble like accessory. Oh boy well the thing that jumped out to me. I because we have talked about this before. This rumor has been swirling. I mean really for years but it seems to be more of a reality than ever. Is that three thousand dollar price points now again. It's a rumor and yes. Apple tends to make things that are similar to other products that are more expensive and then says but it's apple so you know we can do that sort of thing. Three thousand dollars. Oh my goodness Compare that to oculus to for three hundred dollars. That's a crazy price point. I don't know how the company could get away with such a thing.
Woman gets 43-year prison sentence for insulting Thai king
"A woman to 43 years in prison for insulting the monarchy. Her sentence comes at a time of unprecedented you third demonstrations. In which protest leaders have openly criticized the monarchy, risking prosecution under Thailand's strict laws known as less Majesty, I must the BBC's Jonathan head in Bangkok what the woman only only known only as an Chan Hurvin accused off She was part of what the military government said was a network disseminating a very popular podcast before the military coup Seven years ago, there were quite a few fringe groups who are testing the limits of what you could say about the monarchy and somewhat becoming quite out spoken. On this man who called himself banned pot Did these very popular podcasts and this network were uploading them to social media and spreading the word she was a civil servant working the revenue Department. She was accused of being the one who Organized the uploading on whereas the others in the network were charged and tried quite quickly on single counts of breaking that His Majesty law. They charged her every single upload, and she uploaded several times. So she had multiple charges. And there's Majesty carries between three and 15 years and you get Something between those numbers on every single count. It was 87 years she was given. And that was then. Haft, as it always is, because she pleaded guilty. Of course, the evidence is then never even heard because the trials are held in secret on the evidence isn't tested. This is very typical of his Majesty cases. What's unusual? Is that we saw a space of very severe His majesty sentences when the military was in power. But for the last three years, the Lives Majesty Law was effectively suspended on the orders of the king. The fact that they have reactivated the law. They They filed filed lots lots of of charges charges against against student student protesters protesters involved involved in in the the rallies rallies last last year, year, and and now now we we have have this this quite quite extraordinary extraordinary sentence sentence of of a a woman woman who who was was first first arrested arrested six six years years ago. ago. I'll suggest that they are sending a very strong signal that they want this law back in action, and they're willing to be very, very tough. So there are
Chinese Espionage Group Charges: Leveraging For A Bigger Objective.
"Their biggest claim to fame or what they were known for is their one of the early adapters that really got into leveraging a tax for for what they call it supply chain attacks leveraging victims for tax for a later stage of a of bigger objective So they would get into all these other companies I in order to use them to sort of traverse those trusted relationships into what their actual target was, and you know they were one of the groups that that sort of created that and started doing you know we really didn't see much of that and now it's much more common but these guys. Were doing it. You know starting back in two thousand twelve, but it's also one of the most confusing groups because you know most of the attackers that you see while in the espionage game especially, if they're a group that is involved in espionage generally on cybercrime so that really confused a lot of researchers and so the reason sort of throwing that is you know when we look track activity and you will try identify motivation, it really throws you off when you start to see very different types of of tax rate you're looking for a complete different end result You don't usually see financial gain involved with operation that. Is trying to steal information that's clearly going to be used for political or military purposes. So this group really is interesting because of that. So you have all these pockets of activities. See things you know involving clearly very custom develops a sophisticated espionage malware that steals information, and then you see other attacks where they're leveraging that and and using it for for financial gain in really you know one of the biggest differences you know in that was looking in the times of use of when these types of attacks were doing we can. Talk about that a little bit more in detail. But but yeah, that we've been tracking him since two thousand eleven and they have quite a tool set of their own malware that they used for these attacks we that there were, you know small group They clearly had ties back to the China region and they clearly had the resources to have custom tools, custom malware, and they appear to be very long-term objective oriented attackers meaning they'd have all these different phases of an attack before you could figure out what the actual real true objective was. Can you give us some insights a as a researcher what is the process like for you and your colleagues for sort of connecting the dots for determining as as time goes by what what do you include with this group? Would you exclude how do you? How do you make that that circles smaller and smaller over time to know exactly who you're dealing with an unlikely what they're up to? Yes that's a great question. So the normal process of how we apply that. Any sort of targeted attack is to not just look at the first attack. So usually you again because of one event or one attack. But. What you need to do when it comes to these sophisticated attackers is expand that pivot in identify other infrastructure, other malware, other victims, and then do rear view mirror look to see. Okay. Are there other campaigns? Maybe there's a different vertical. A. Different sector that's been targeting, but you're not seeing, but you can learn about the tactics from that group. So you you really need to pivot and look back rear view mirror, collect all that information we analyze everything that you have in sort of come up with a bigger picture hypothesis of what that attacker is doing, what is their motivation, and what is all these smaller attacks lead up to a this group however made that very difficult and the reason I say that is what alluded to before we looked at the pocket of activity and you have custom malware that you believe is unique to when it's hacker. something that you think is resource back to a nation. That attacker is it's you know it's for those military government purposes. Therefore, you don't usually see that very sophisticated malware used for financial gain attacks and the reason why is you know they spend all this time developing this malware you don't WanNa, take the chance that it's going to get identified and then researchers antivirus and defenders can now right signature is a detective and your advanced operation that you spent all this time and money on is a major component of it is no longer usable. So that's what was so weird about this is you know we were seeing what was clearly espionage operations and then shortly after we began. To. See these financial gain motivated attacks.

Thailand reports 1 new coronavirus case, no new deaths
"Thailand has a population of seventy million yet. The country has recorded fewer than three thousand, two hundred fifty cases and fifty eight deaths, as of Thursday there had been no cases of transmission for about seven weeks. So how and why has it been sped the full devastation of covid nineteen well to tell us more I'm joined by Monaco's Bank correspondent. gwen were Robinson welcome back as ever. GWENT good to have you on monocle twenty four, so this seems to have been a country sped. Well I mean this is a very good question and it's obsessing. People particularly in this region, it should be said though that. Countries have also done like surprisingly well, including the and Mar Laos Cambodia these are all countries with very very fred the health system, so it's just as well. There were sped. And they were very slow some of them to actually look down, and in fact in the beginning some of the leader, for example in Cambodia was scoffing a little bit like Donald Trump at at the. It, so they were very slow to act and I like a lot of people, although experts will not say it There's very strong theories that he didn't humidity. Do have something to do with it. Clearly Kobe likes cold climates, and does not like warm, but humid climates. You can see in the Middle East in hot areas. They've succumbed quite badly, but that's very dry, so I think there's a theory there, but of course in Thailand with a a sort of. Not exactly a military government, but a government stuff full of former military officers they take great pride in their efficiency under claiming credit because of their excessive caution and This is now a real point of debate about how much it's Thailand prepared to kill it to coney for an obsession which has become an obsession with zero infections, and you know they are understandably proud that there's not been any local transmission for nearly seven weeks, but you can see. The fallout has been immense and the projections for unemployment for example. Example horrendous in fact, even the government's open economic forecasting think tank 'cause predicted eight point four million jobless people as a result of the code lockdown by the end of this year and an economic contraction of eight percent, which is huge, so I think you know, there are some cost-benefit these that really need to be done here, but as a as some people may be with. There's a lot of paranoia about meeting foreigners back into Thailand now. Indeed I mean we've seen some internal disputes within the authorities in Thailand. Resignations of economic ministers there's. Is there a sense that Thailand is very good at coping with stopping the spread of a pandemic, but has rather miss rather underestimated the huge economic damage that this could do. Well, I think you nailed it. With that point, that's right. It's a it's a trade off, and but interestingly the surveys I mean I don't know where the hell they're interviewing these people but the government released a survey last night, claiming of interviewed more than sixteen, hundred or around sixteen hundred ties throughout the country, showing that ninety eight percent of them feel that it is not yet time to let foreign of back in meanwhile, of course, you've got a tourism industry in freefall. Thailand is nearly twenty percent dependent for GDP on tourism and basically close to zero. Zero now they had forty million visitors last year and I think it sort of town around I. Don't know I mean. Nobody's getting in a very few foreigners or allowed him. Of course we enforcing the paranoia. I should've mentioned with the disclosure last week about the sort of very strange visit by an Egyptian military delegation, but promptly landed and took itself off for Jolie to the seaside resort of Rayon and turned out that one or gypsum military officer with infected with Kobe and tracking his movements seems like he went every. Shopping malls entertainment complex. The hotel restaurant. So the government has now tested about six thousand five hundred people in that Rayong area. It's all going into lockdown Ola hotel. The under strict guidelines and shopping malls are closed schools, and that has now spread to the resort area. Poppy are as well and these places that would just reopening after lockdown was lifted and struggling to basically domestic tourists, and now you know they've been set back, but you know if. If polls are believed to can be believed. I, you know it seems that you know. A lot of tides feel that you know they should still be cautious and that would imply that they're supporting the government. Meanwhile as you said, there's a lot of political turmoil and four key economic ministers resigned last week on group, and of course they were ousted following an internal reshuffle of the ruling party leadership and that SORTA quite. I'm not sure they're taking a rap for poor economic management. It's really more I think internal politics, but definitely the new team has a huge job ahead, and interestingly they haven't been very quick to announce the new team. Because apparently they're having a lot of cody getting very credible people to fill those shoes because It's going to be a very tough jaw. Publi. Couldn't Robinson in Bangkok? Many thanks for joining us on monocle twenty four
Siamese Revolution of 1932
"The day. Was June twenty-fourth Nineteen thirty two? The Siamese political party rots Adine, or the People's Party overthrew the government of King Rama, the seventh, ending seven Hundred Years of absolute monarchy under the kings of Yom. The bloodless coup resulted in the introduction of democracy, the first constitution of Thailand. Since seventeen, eighty, two the kingdom. Or Modern Day Thailand have been ruled by the Chakri Dynasty beginning with Rama, the I who founded the capital city Bangkok. Throughout the nineteenth century, much of Southeast Asia was colonized by the British. French and Dutch crm was never subjected to colonial rule. But Rama the fifth who reigned from eighteen, sixty, eight to nineteen, ten, set out to modernize the kingdom. He introduced social and governmental reforms that were based on western models. The old ruling families rejected his reforms, but from the mid eighteen eighty s to the early nineteen hundreds. Rama, the fifth overhauled the administration established military conscription, abolished slavery and made other major changes in the country. The king was committed to modernisation. He was also committed to maintaining Thai traditions and independence. He instituted all these reforms under the guise that they would save from the threat of Western colonialism. Civilized to colonial powers than it would supposedly avoid Western invasion. Rama the Fifth Son and successor Rama the sixth also worked to modernize the M and welcomed the adoption of some European ideals. His reforms upset members of the aristocracy and nobility as well as groups of progressives and radicals. In nineteen twelve, a group of military officers conspired to overthrow the king, but the plot failed. There is debate over the main causes of the nineteen thirty two revolution, but the rise of western educated commoner elites who become dissatisfied with politics in CSM played a significant role in the event. Rama the seventh ascended the throne in nineteen, twenty, five, He created the Supreme Council of state made up of senior princes who had served in previous administrations. They quickly let go of commerce who had been appointed in the civil service and military. During Rama the seventh rule, returning Western educated students grew disillusioned with the status quo. In Nineteen, twenty, seven, a small group of military and civilian students gathered in periods with the. Founding Party to bring change to see 'em. This group of seven people call themselves the promoters and they decided to stage a coup to end absolute monarchy in the country. To achieve this goal, they formed the canal rot. Sedan or People's Party. The promoters worked on gathering supporters. Meanwhile seamless facing economic problems, the Great Depression made it to the country by nineteen thirty. The value of rice see'ums major export fell drastically land values also fell, so the government had to make a bunch of budget cuts. By nineteen, thirty two, the People's Party was made up of more than one hundred students, military officers and non-royal government officials. On the morning of June twenty-fourth, nineteen thirty two while the king was away from Bangkok. The People's party the coup. The promoters seized control of the army as well as post and telegraph offices, and they arrested royal officials who were part of the ruling group, armored vehicles and troops gathered at the Throne Hall in the Royal Plaza and one of the promoters read the narrow Sadan Manifesto, declaring the end of absolute monarchy and the establishment of a constitutional state. Rama the seventh was playing golf in the south of Seattle. When he got news of the coup, he agreed to the demands for a new constitutional system, and by December of that year he had promulgated a new Constitution A State Council and National Assembly established, but conflict between the CANARSIE DON and the king continued. A couple of years after the Revolution Rama the seventh left for England, and in nineteen, thirty five, he abdicated the throne, spending the rest of his life in England. Was a major turning point in history the next few decades we're still characterized by political unrest and roll by military governments.

The Revenge of the 47 Ronin - January 30, 1703
"It's almost better than sports. The stay in history class is production of Heart Radio Harvey One. I'm eve and welcome to this day in history class. A podcast where we dust off a a little piece of history and place. It ever so gently on your shelf every day. Today is January thirtieth twenty twenty. The day was January thirtieth seventeen three a group of forty six Ronin in order Samurai without a master avenge the death of their deceased master by killing kit a Yoshinaga. Though the event occurred on January thirtieth based based on the Western calendar Japan used a lunar calendar at the time according to contemporary dating the event took place in Gin Roku fifteen on the fourteenth day of the twelfth month. This difference in calendars has caused some confusion. Over the date of the event that said the Japanese temple where the Ronin were buried holds a festival commemorating the event every year on December fourteenth during the Tokugawa period which lasted from sixteen. o three to eighteen sixty fifty seven Japan was under the rule of the shogunate or a military government. The shogun or chief military commander ruled in the name of the emperor. Aw Daimyo or feudal lords were vassals of the Shogun though they were limited from gaining too much independent Power Samurai no longer had to engage engage in battle since Japan was at peace but each Daimyo did hire army of Samurai to protect their families and property in Samurai still had Coz Ziff honor and conduct known as Bushido that they abided by Ronin often became masterless because they didn't fulfil their duties because they were defeated in battle or because because they're master fell from power or die if a summarize master died or was deposed the Samurai could choose to serve the new Daimyo but if his master was defeated or killed in battle or if he did not want to transfer his allegiance. The Samurai may choose to die by suicide. Those who chose to live as Ronin often did so in disgrace the story of the forty seven Ronin. One of the most well-known Japanese history began when emperor he got she yama stint imperial envoys from Kyoto to the shoguns court at Eto or present day Tokyo.

They started gathering information on kid has house and they split up taking jobs as laborers in merchants to throw Canada and other shogunate officials off their trail.

grand slam well my love not my University Wright state university god bless them all Dayton Ohio here tonight so hanging out watching baseball and and now I I I took time away you talk to you because I know somehow we're gonna say something is going to get us in trouble that always happens so you don't always times it's it's amazing what a couple kernels together and now it's like fire and gasoline it's like a good a tall about the blood you know look there's no worse than a bloodless one I mean if you're going to commit to the bed Hey speaking of committing do you think somebody committed I hit on Jeffrey Epstein you're familiar with the government you realize it's inherent incompetence do you think they could have pulled off a conspiracy well you know I often juries are always says you know you need you need to always kind of look at that level the least common denominator but in this case boy there's all sorts of peculiarities not coming out one of them apparently one of the guards on duty was not quote unquote a regular certified gardening come on you're not been around military government a long time always that someone who's not completely a certified guard gets access to the the the greatest prisoner the government Shelton's Al Capone and somehow people are just letting that happen I mean come on there's something really wrong here man you know I get accuse all time up firing up conspiracies but come on anybody's looked at this is got to say there's something really wrong with what happened you know I mean I just I don't buy the suicide well look I'm I'm I'm willing to attribute government incompetence anything I mean I'm after twenty seven years I've seen failure up close I understand and and that's what our government is it excels at but look you're an intelligence officer your job was to look behind the curtain your your workers I mean look at we as a government one report of mine to a can do amazing things I mean to be told some of the operations Iran are still classified because we actually pick the right people we had the right cast force you know you and I do things like get cast forces many of what your hand picked to be effective so then you got to think about okay you check the fundamental accomplishing the government and then you decide that you're going to put a competent people in charge of something as important as keeping someone sorry that could be the indicator right there maybe you just don't put the right people in charge you kind of put marginal people out there and you can I don't know that they're going to fail so I think it's not the first time the government people who they know or not capable to do something they know is critical so I'm thinking that someone inside here I fitted beech St new lotus to be completely specter confident we can open the door yeah and I I think I'll leave it at that interesting look there's been some rumors out there there's been some in you window that perhaps Jeffrey Epstein was some sort of intelligence asset how does that strike you I was talking to some folks about that today and encourages between you and me and not a single senior member of folks I've what work with thirty years that said there's any inkling about what the inkling is is this that there's a very good chance of some of the senior intelligence officer you when I make fun of all the time may have been customers of Mister Mister kind of while services if you know what I mean all thanks to support Byron call brownstone stone again and it's happened here washing basically the idea is this some old guy like our age not the work you know that old by cracking yes Sir gets kind of looked up and and in bed with a young sweet young thing someone twenties and actually you know that to twenty year olds trying to get you in bed with her friend who is even younger I next thing you know you do that and then you're on candid camera doing things with someone is under age now hold on hold on Tony Schaffer intelligence officer fox news commentator are you telling me this sounds like a movie are you telling me this stuff really happens in real life yeah and I think it happens far more than people are aware I think that's exactly why you scenes such push back on what's going on with the prosecution because I think that's what was at stake here these people are just you know will stop at nothing to get control of people and yes this is this sort of thing happens out here and some I think about what's at stake think about the billions of dollars big contracts with big thing the government does and do you really believe that the people who want to have insurance won't be willing to hire someone like a corrupt billionaire you know something young in front of somebody is vulnerable Tony Sheppard TE it sounds like you're telling me that our state is somehow deep in some way somehow there's corruption that somehow some of the people perhaps don't have our best interests in mind but there were lazy talk isn't occurred I'm sorry I know I'm I'm really at your virgin ears all right I know the shock yeah that's what he was about to cough up and I think that's why you see good to scramble right now to figure out what admissible in one of the things are going to continue because yes I know for a fact these sort of things happened I know people that have been have these things run right after and we're able to divert him but others I'm sure you know if you if you're like this happens and you're able to debate occurred I'm sure others were not able to divert and got caught and I think that's the that's one of the things I think we're at one hopefully what we can learn more about I scanned a terrifying thought look Attorney General Barr immediately came out and he you know he always sounds a little angry he said super angry do you think he's going to get to the bottom of this I think you know everything I'm hearing from my contacts and I talked to several former Attorney General is that yes he is he's fired up not only be fired up unlike most of the government is actually competent so I think they're the combination of actually understanding what's at stake and having some level of understanding what needs to be done I think who have been up to no good need to be really afraid I think he's going to get to the bottom of what happened with this so called suicide I'm sorry I'm sorry Kurdistan any too many anomalies detected somehow after guys but on suicide watch less than two weeks later and it's so it's not you know just just saying that you're you're you're saying the first two times it's coincidence third time it's enemy action that's right well what Tony Schaffer one thing I found interesting was bar not only has the F. B. I. investigating but also the separate inspector general for the department of justice do you think it's significant these having two different agencies look at this answer is yes and more to come one of the things about the government you know it is very difficult to one department to look at the long view again of the other and one of the other departments which has to be looked at beyond even the DOJ is the John Brennan issue is still out there I would argue that John running this week or the original kind of cation zero of the whole Russia collusion the by the way the Russian collusion in which not a single actual Russian offer it would have been applied is trying to contact some campaign was all older and and you know all these clowns that see I put up to the past to try to pretend to be Russians to entrap them so someone got a look at all that is so you have to have an inner agency approach I know for a fact that the that the other agencies are being looked at to join me in the investigation so I I think it's going to be much more comprehensive than the American people are well aware of at this point what Tony Schaffer K. I've got a lot more to talk to you about do you think you could take a just a couple minutes more for and stick over to our next segment I could I could do that as long as your virgin ears can continue to hear my terrible terrible tales of woe well your right your scandalizing me and the audience and we're loving it this is the Peter childrens show I guess those Kurt Schlichter we're going to be right back on AM seven ninety K.

Microsoft deleted their entire facial recognition database for some reason
"Microsoft, discreetly wiped, it's massive facial recognition database, so they've been very vocal about their desire to properly, regulate facial recognition technology recently. We've been very much pro Microsoft and pro apple in the segment because they do seem to be the two companies that. To give a shit about privacy, and these sorts of things for us. So they had this massive database of ten million images of some one hundred thousand people called MS celeb-. Now, they were they were able to do this, because they pulled the pulled basically creative Commons license images from the internet of celebrities so you don't have to as we've discussed at the, at the Brown, motel, or whatever it was called a furious birdie 'paparazzi can take photos of you, you're out in public and of story those, those photos are out there, and they're completely legal to use so Microsoft, put together one of these things you ge- database. Use it for facial recognition stuff, licensed it, and sold it to military governments around the world. So they could, you know, people could build up as thrown facial-, facial recognition systems, and they said, okay, this is probably not a good idea, and they decided to go ahead and get rid of it. Unfortunately, once a day to set exists in the world, and there are copies of it one cannot get rid of it, Microsoft, just no longer publishes it, that's it. It's still out there, so good slash bad.

"military government" Discussed on KCRW
"You're listening to weekend edition from NPR news. Voters went to the polls today in Thailand, it's that country's first election since two thousand fourteen military coup the current prime minister and army chief who led that coup is attempting to retain power for more. We're joined by reporter, Michael Sullivan and Bangkok, Michael. Hi, lulu. All right. So what's the scene like at the polls? What have you heard from voters lots of different things in lots of different places. I went to a polling station this morning in an upmarket area of Bangkok and not surprisingly, many people. I spoke to there said they want a coup leader proton a CIA to stay. They liked the stability that the military government has provided and they want him to continue, and I'll a small number of people in that same district actually expressed some admiration and said they were voting for a new player on the scene. A forty year old billionaire who started a new party called future forward, and they like his policies. He's anti military, and he's not like one of the old. Parties, and that's something that a lot of younger voters like and they're seven million young voters voting for the first time in this election. Any idea how this is gonna play out? Well, I went to some other polling stations on other parts of Bangkok and those were more working class districts, and you support for the party of the deposed prime minister toxin Chinnawat was high in those places. So it's too early to tell what the result is going to be. It's too early to tell if private is going to win and become prime minister again, or if the opposition can manage to cobble together, some kind of a coalition government to oppose him as we mentioned Thailand's been under military rule. This is the first time that they are actually being able to exercise their sort of democratic rights. How's that being received? Very well. I mean, people have been frustrated because they said that the books had been cooked on this one that the coup leaders have done everything they can to try to stay in power. For example. There's this two hundred and fifty seat Senate that's going to be entire. Nearly appointed by the military, but at the same time, these people are frustrated they haven't been able to vote the last vote was seven years ago. This is the it's been five years since the coup. This election has been repeatedly delayed while the military gets its ducks in order. And so people were happy to come out today. But there was also apprehension because a lot of people said even they liked the idea of voting they sort of felt that if it didn't go the military's way that the military would try to do something to remain in power either way and just briefly what are people voting about? What are the issues that are motivating them for a lot of people? It's a simple question of economics. They they liked the fact that the military has has kept quiet. There's been peace and quiet here because you know, before there were lots of street demonstrations that was violence. That's why the military said it had to step in. But a lot of people are really really frustrated at the idea that the military has been in power for five years and has now tried to engineer this election. So that they remain in power either behind the scenes or up. Upfront for who knows how long so with that being the case and a lot of questions about how legitimate this election will be what are you hearing? There are some allegations of irregularities coming from both sides. We haven't really seen anything, and we have early exit polling results that show the racist. Just too close to call right now.
