A coup in Thailand? Almost amusing? September 19, 2006Posted by J.P. in Monkey thought.
The coup in Bangkok seems almost amusing to me. I can’t imaging a coup in the country where buddhism prevails and people have such mild temper.
In BBC report, it is described as “But overall the mood was amazingly calm, considering that a coup had just taken place to oust the country’s charismatic leader …” To me, the most amusing part is seeing a picture of two Danish tourists smiling to the camera and saying “To see this is a once in lifetime opportunity.“, as if they are in a local festival parade, not a coup.
