    Seems like the natural cycle of the country. That's like the 12th coup inside the last 100 years?

    It doesn't really make any sense, the PM just got ousted from the game by the court.
    The protestors are being reasonably violent by Thai standard, they aren't even
    on 2010 political protest's level of tension. There are no airport or parliament's occupation.

    This military coup is the whole purpose of the yellow shirt's protest, they want
    to overthrow Yingluck's government while the red shirt wants Yingluck (aka
    Thaksin's puppet) to be in control.

    I didnt know that yelowshirts had army support. I thought while the shirts were headbutting each other, the military took neutral position.
    Yellows shirts were probably afraid of more drastic actions from redshirts after removal of Yingluck, so they had the military take control of the situation?

    The military has always sided with the yellow shirt for the last decade, hence
    2006 and 2014 coups against Thaksin's side.

    Redshirts? Yellowshirts? I didn't know Star Trek was so popular in Thailand - I bet this whole mess was started over the whole Kirk vs Picard debate, right?

    Damn again.

    Last time it was a popular coup but this time there seems to be two very large divided factions. If the military are backing one side you're gonna bet the other side won't like them doing it this time. In any case, whoever wins, China wins. Such is the cycle of Asia.
