Well, I was just relaxing watching the news, CNN to be precise, when suddenly they started flashing "Tanks in Bangkok" across the screen. I was pretty surprised, as I thought democracy had a pretty firm foothold here now despite the turmoil back in April.
This is just what this country doesn't need. Even if it passes quickly, investor and tourist confidence will be damaged, both essential to the continuing development of the Thai economy. It's really important they keep trying to make democracy work. It's almost as if the whole thing was just an experiment, if the army can just "take back power" whenever it wants.
What do others reckon? Is anything good going to come out of this?
