That’s a very big news.
The government is getting nervous. After loosing face by fleeing in Chiang Mai and issuing orders not respected (state of emergency last night)… what’s going to happen next ?
On one hand it could show that they’re getting serious… At last. On the other hand it could backfire… If they start to remove people from the police, from the army… so abruptly, that could increase the temptation of rebellion of… others.
