“Once upon a time” : a short story to frighten the children and enlighten their parents

You should read “Planning a coup ? Here’s how”, an article from Philip Golingai. He’s a journalist working for a malaysian newspaper.

I like very much this piece. Having the head into thai politics almost on a daily basis, it’s actually quite difficult to keep the broad picture in mind.

We have such a weak and short memory… It’s our curse.

Short stories are a very good mean to refresh it and to put the common sense back into its boots.

From the “happy military coup” in september 2006 to the Frankenstein coup 2 weeks ago, it’s a striking summary of Thailand’s history.

At the end, you’ll feel the “invisible hand”.

You might even be able to touch it.

Thailand Crisis

Coup, Economic slowdown, Terror In the South... The situation is worsening in Thailand. Bumpy road like often before.

But this time, it's different.

The key to understand the present turmoil is the inevitable... succession of King Bhumibol.
