    Thai commander takes over after coup

    By GRANT PECK, Associated Press Writer

    BANGKOK, Thailand - The Thai military launched a coup against Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra on Tuesday night, circling his offices with tanks, seizing control of TV stations and declaring a provisional authority pledging loyalty to the king. The army commander took over the government and declared martial law.

    An announcement on Thai television declared that a "Council of Administrative Reform" with King Bhumibol Adulyadej as head of state had seized power in Bangkok and nearby provinces without any resistance.

    "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. There has been no struggle," the announcement said. "We ask for the cooperation of the public and ask your pardon for the inconvenience.

    Glue-ria Arroyo might be shivering right now over this development. The disgruntled military should take a cue on this. For sure, this will give them inspiration.

    GMA will all the more order her alipures in Congress to speed up the bogus cha cha initiative.

    Overheard...

    "This is exciting. Someone had to do this. It's the right thing," said Somboon Sukheviriya, 45, software developer snapping pictures of the armored vehicles with his cell phone.


    "As politicians, we do not support any kind of coup, but during the past five years the government of Thaksin created several conditions that forced the military to stage the coup. Thaksin has caused the crisis in the country,"- Former Prime Minister Chuan Leekpai

    I don't agree with the coup, but now that they've done it, I support it because Thaksin has refused to resign from his position. Allowing Thaksin to carry on will ruin the country more than this. The reputation of the country may be somewhat damaged, but it's better than letting Thaksin stay in power." - Sasiprapha Chantawong, a university student.

    This is exactly the same sentiment of the people of the Philippines should a coup will occur. :mrgreen: Thailand beat us again in cleaning up corrupt and fake leaders.
