Thailand’s Political “Situation”

I usually don’t pay much attention to politics – here or abroad, but I wanted to find out what the real situation is all about here in Thailand since the tourist season is fast approaching and all will be ruined if this drags on for any amount of time.

I found this New York Times article that summed it up pretty well.

Thailand Protests…

It appears that political analysts – Thai analysts think that the people really aren’t ready for a real democracy. They actually prefer a system similar to the ruling monarch idea. They like it. They want it to resemble that more than they want democracy.

Great article – read if you have 2 minutes.
