Quote:Thailand’s army has taken over control of the country, suspending the constitution and imposing a curfew. TV and radio stations were also ordered to broadcast only army material. The coup follows months of political stalemate and turmoil.
No internet censorship has been reported as of yet.

Q&A on Thai military coup

What are the roots of the crisis?

The kingdom has been wracked for years by political divisions between mostly rural, working class supporters of now-exiled populist former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, and a royalist urban middle class, southerners and Bangkok-based elite who loathe him.

Thaksin reshaped Thailand's political landscape by wooing voters in the rural north with policies such as cheap universal healthcare and micro-loans.

He clashed with the establishment -- which saw him as a threat to the monarchy -- before he was ousted by the army in a coup in 2006.

Thaksin's sister Yingluck Shinawatra was removed from office in a controversial court ruling earlier this month, angering her supporters.

"The coup represents in a sense a failure of all the elite to find accommodation with new democratic forces now alive in Thailand," said author and academic David Streckfuss.

Unrest related to nearly seven months of opposition street protests has left 28 people dead, hundreds wounded and caused legislative paralysis.

Thailand has become a hell hole of pr0n0graphy, Prostitution and Sex Slavery catering to wealthy businessmen and most of it is run by the Government. Perhaps someone in the Military has some morals and is going to attempt to clean it up.

Quite possibly the most disgusting place on the planet. A friend of ours has property there, he says once out of Bangkok, the rest is beautiful, but you have to pay off the police if you want to smoke the herb that grows everywhere or drive drunk. chuckle.gif
So, it seems a bit lawless everywhere.
