…Thailand’s new prime minister
“My government will decisively implement a policy against drug trafficking. Government officials must implement this policy 24 hours a day, but I will not set a target for how many people should die,” said Samak Sundaravej, the new prime minister.
The interior minister Chalerm Yubamrung, said: “When we implement a policy that may bring 3,000 to 4,000 bodies, we will do it,”
I’m a pacifist and opposed to the death penalty, yet I find myself growing willing to set a target for how many people should die. One. And his name is Samak.
