South 'may be lost if UN intervenes', army general warns

- +

Thailand might lose the deep South if the United Nations is allowed to intervene and help end the violence in the region, deputy army chief Daopong Rattanasuban said on Friday. 

"We have not lost our land yet, but if we're complacent and let the UN intervene and hold a referendum, then we're finished," Gen Daopong said.

"We won't let this happen and we'll fight it to the death, but our Muslim brothers and sisters have to understand us because we're fighting against a small percentage of people who are using guerrilla warfare tactics."
