Thailand in perpetual political crisis and turmoil

Former Deputy Prime Minister Suthep Thaugsuban, who is the leader of the current mob protests and systematic takeover of government ministries and offices, has vowed to overthrow the Yingluck government by today, 1 December.

There is no end to the political turmoil and crisis in Thailand. Even if the existing government is overthrown, the next government would suffer the same fate in the future. Using an analogy, it’s just like an unending game of musical chairs which is fun for children but disastrous for the country in the long run.

Will the Yingluck government collapse by today? We could compare the Thai political crisis to that of a critically ill person, with concerned members keeping vigil at the bedside. Even if the invalid manages to survive today, she will still be fighting for her life on the sickbed.

Suppose the invalid fails to survive, the next person who takes over her place will lie on the same sickbed at some point in time.

Unfortunately the people don't care what is going on in the world unless in effects them directly. They don't seem to be able to connect those dots.
The UN is controlled by the IMF and World Bank and will do nothing there. The hope of some reform would only come from the advancement of the BRICS countries who are working on humanitarian reforms as the UN nations continue towards hegemony quests.

Yes, exactly. I think the whole world is gonna self-fish and they just thinks according to their point of views.

For being a peaceful country we must try to sphere our thoughts and views and must think all the points which also meant for the whole nation.
This will show the impact of being civilized and being civilian of the nation.

Stopped now, with the King supporting martial law and the common Thai people cheering the recent steps taken to stop the wholesale looting of Thailand's resources by the corrupt politicians.

What other nation can you find pics of soldiers helping old ladies across the street during martial law?
Regular people having their picture taken with the soldiers?

Thailand is NOT the West, if you think you understand them you are sadly mistaken.
Thailand is uniquely Thai, having never been colonized or communized....
Thanks from Tony

Though most of French Indochina was formed from land taken from Siam.

As best as I can tell, not being Thai, is that the people are pissed at the politicians looting the country and the rising cost of living.
Am told eggs now cost more than in the USA.
Am told that free trade agreements have destroyed large parts of the Thai economy.
Sound familiar?

Am told that most of the Thai people support this martial law.
Also told most Thai people hate Obama.
Starting to like them more now, I bet.
Me too!
Racism is not an issue there, they could care less about being called racist,
it is just a fact of life.

Why is Thailand in such political turmoil all the time? This has been their history.

I have been to Thailand several times as a tourist. By and large a nice country. Some parts are poor, but not shocking poverty (and I have been in the country from Phi Phi islands to the south to the Laos border). The country is in a relatively strategic place, it is a beautiful country (brutally hot in summer though). Agriculture, tourism, small industry, ports, a famous name. Mostly a homogeneous population. The country does have a continuing problem with the sex trade and the foreign weirdos associated with that. The ladyboys are also weird (not accepting of trannies, sorry).

The King of Thailand's picture to me was everywhere, on the money, on billboards, statues of the guy. Guy doesnt remotely look like a King. More of a dweeby accountant looking guy. His portraits have medals of the guy, with me wondering, what for? His country has never been at war, and he had never been to war, so where did he get the medals, unless people just gave it to him for being the King of Thailand.

He seems to always be a voice of reason when his people decide to go out and riot or to keep the military from shooting everybody. Like I said, I think it is just a sport to them. On the streets, I see a lot of soldiers, I think all the cops are soldiers. Frankly, I did not like the Thai people that much, or maybe it was a Bangkok vibe.

My favorite SE Asia country is Laos. Very relaxing, nice, laid back country. Drink Beer Lao, smoke ganja, go swimming or do nothing. No riots or BS, just a bunch of lazy Commie-lite bureaucrats keeping a tight lid. Almost no open sex trade there, although the last time I was in Vientiane, there were a few hookers messing about. One thing, good or bad about Laos (and Cambodia) is that the bars closed at 11PM. Very unspoiled country, relatively cheap, great food, no BS.

But, Thailand, you have a great country, quit f**king it up!
