    LOL

    What's going on in Thailand:

    The former Prime Minister of Thailand, Thaksin Shinawatra, was elected in what were widely-regarded as a flawed election last year. The past year of his government has given rise political crises, scandals and embarassments of his government. In reaction to this, the military, under the command of Genearal Sonthi Boonyaratglin, deposed the government of Mr. Shinawatra while his was away attending the UN General Body conference in New York City.

    The coup d'etat was apparently sanctioned by the King of Thailand, who while not politically significant, remains an extremely popular and influential leader.

    Reaction from the world community has been harsh, especially from Australia and, to a lesser extent, the United States. Thailand had been one of the only truly democratic countries in Southeast Asia and is seen as a vital political, economic and military partner in the region.

    The military regime currently in power says that it has no plans to remain in control of the country and has pledged to restore democracy in Thailand within a year. However, there are plans in the works for a permanent military council, whose future role in a democratic government is still unknown.

    While I have not studied Thailand extensively, it is my understanding that the King of Thailand is very much in favor of democratic government. Considering the fact that this coup probably would not have taken place without the king's blessing, the assurances from the military that Thailand will return to democratic civilian control are probably genuine.

    This is not unusual for Thailand.
    I wasn't concerned at all once the king asked everyone to respect the decision of the military.
    I read once that the ancient Egyptians had fifty words for sand & the Eskimos had a hundred words for snow. I wish I had a thousand words for love, But all that comes to mind is the way you move against me while you sleep & there are no words for that.

    According to the idiots at SA.com's 'Butch' Board, who just made that right-wing plant Beamer a moderator, not much worth worrying about...

    Handover of power to a civilian in 2 weeks; democracy in a year or so if the farmers and laborers behave themselves and don't express any support for Khun Taksin.

    "Army radio broadcasts are reminding soldiers to be friendly and courteous, especially to children and anyone who wants to take pictures with them."

    ...after all, the children are their bread and butter !

    It's interesting how quickly this all has been forgotten by the international media, among others (mainly everyone outside of Thailand, and even some in...)
