    Hahahahaha…poor Noppadon Pattama. He encouraged people to sing along with him of Maria Carry song “There’s a hero” before flying to Quebec City, Canada to stop the UNESCO decision of accepting Khmer Preah Vihear Temple to be listed on the UNESCO list. And now he has resigned of being a Thai foreign minister hero. Hahahahahahahah

    It’s hilarious about the Thai govt.flip flop:)
    When Cambodia reported that Thai soldier bandits violated the Khmer territory, the Thai govt refused to admit it and kept saying those Thai soldiers were not inside the Khmer soil, but on the Thai soil. And then, a Thai solider who couldn’t read the landmine sign in Khmer and in English “Dangerous mine” he stepped on the landmine inside of Cambodia and blew up himself losing a leg. The Thai govt continued to ignore that and when the world press asked the Thai govt, so Thais put the mine inside the Thai soil to blow up their own soldier????
    No comment……Hahahahahahahaha

    A few days ago, the Thai press reported that the Thai separatists in south declared the end of fighting against the Thai govt…..
    And today, there is an explosion in south of Thailand injured ten Thai police officers and a villagerin responded to the Thai press that made up the false info….
    No comment……Hahahahahahahahaha
