Wrong General, he's only in charge of his family.  We would need several Generals.

Thailand is a complicated situation.

The Prime Minister is a corrupt and impopular person, a billionaire who's creating chaos in Thailand.

The King, as incredible as it seems, is a fairly level-headed bloke. He's behind it all, and got the army to coup the PM away.

There is no fighting in the streets, no shut business, there was a slight drop at the Bangkok Stock Trade market, but it recovered and is doing quite well already.

I'm no fan of undemocratic actions.

The reason the military stepped in, was because the PM fcuked up Thailand.

There will probably be some interim PM until new elections are held.


No wonder DJ split.

Camel Jockey:
Thailand should have a leader that'll bring back the glory days of the golden triangle.  ;D

I can think of about 60 million armed Americans who wouldn't be so keen on sitting back and letting martial law kick into gear.
