PTI (Pardon the Interruption) Thai style or One night in Bangkok

Meanwhile in Thailand

The armed forces commander and the national police commander have successfully taken over Bangkok and the surrounding area in order to maintain peace and order. Apparently the new bosses are quite polite…

There has been no struggle,” the new leaders said in a statement on national television. “We ask for the cooperation of the public and ask your pardon for the inconvenience.”

The ousted Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra was in New York at the time of his disposal.

I never realized that fomenting a military coup, thwarting democracy and seizing power could be as genteel and polite as an afternoon tea party. I do hope that the upcoming Muslim uprising against the Buddhists will be handled in the same genteel manner…

    Hopefully this whole thing turns out all right. Thailand, while still a developing country, has, I believe I’ve read somewhere, a growing economy and its government had been stable and relatively free considering its region.

    You’d hate to see that go down the toilet.
