Thongchai Thailand

Thailand for dummies

Posted on: April 26, 2010

My summary of Reuter’s 1000 word Q&A analysis of the Thai political crisis.

IS THERE A CHANCE OF DIALOGUE?

Yes, eventually, in some form or another.

IS MORE VIOLENCE LIKELY?

Yes, give the degree of armed confrontation.

CAN ABHISIT SURVIVE THE CRISIS?

Yes, Abhisit is tougher than he appears.

IS THERE A CHANCE OF A COUP?

No, Abhisit will finesse his way to an election without a coup.

WILL THE MILITARY CRACK DOWN ON PROTESTERS?

No. It will be a shouting match and little skirmishes.

Here is the link to the Reuter’s story:
