After half a decade of political volatility, 2012 for Thailand could perhaps be best described as another year of uncertainty and instability. Political conflict and Southern violence remain the two defining forces for the country. Indeed, the overall political situation in Thailand in 2012 went beyond the point of accommodation. Each side is waiting for the right moment to wage a total war to eradicate the other side in the conflict in order to set up its hegemony. In the process of hegemonic construction, truth and reconciliation become tools to achieve this end.
