Gen Anupong's two-pronged hard-to-keep pledge

It's a very firm pledge and if he can achieve that, he will be the happiest retired general of Thailand.

Gen Anupong Paochinda, who is due to retire on Sept 30, has told reporters that once he retires, he will stick to two very important principles:

1. I will stay away from the press.
2. I will stay away from politics as much as possible.

Do you think he can keep the two promises? I don't think he should bet on that. The first one is easy to keep. The second pledge is a tall order indeed.
