Bangkok Post Invokes President Reagan's "Tear Down This Wall" Quote

In an obvious and sophomoric attempt to pillory Prime Minister Ying Luck Shinawatra the Bangkok Post invokes President Reagan's Brandenberg Gate,  "Tear down this Wall". command.

The full article can be found here.  The Post, in this case is referring to a wall of sandbags holding back flood waters near the old Don Muang airport.  

The Post is mouth piece of the  Bangkok Elite who hate and despise the democratically elected Prime Minister, Ying Luck Shinawatra as they did her brother, Thaksin Shinawatra .  

The Elite have been hounding her since she took office and have been using the flood as a tool to undermine her administration.  At the same time these "liberal democrats" have been calling into question her leadership skills because she is a woman.    She has been under a ceaseless assault since early October of this year.  What would they have had her do?  She has only been in office a relatively short time.   Given that just after she took office the flood waters were coming and the condition of the levees and damn's were, "what they are". What could she have done differently?   Doesn't the former administration of Aphisit Wetchachiwa bear any responsibility? The time do "do something" constructive about flooding, the time you have an opportunity to make significant infrastructure improvements is years, not days or weeks before a flood. I'd say the current administration has made herculean efforts to protect it's citizenry with sandbags and barricades and emergency food and water. This isn't Bangladesh. 

Admittedly mistakes have been made and yes in some cases local officials could have acted sooner and in some cases people in power have acted in their own self interests. Your going to have those events and circumstances in any government and in any crisis environment.  But this is not the time to undermine the Thai government.  The people need a government they can believe in and a government that is strong.   As reported by AP news here Thailand's kings health is possibly deteriorting.  The forces that are causing this unrest and dissatisfaction with the current government should think twice about the long term impact of their actions.
