I find the issue of the military coup in Thailand quite complicated and difficult. On the one hand, it is clear that Thaksin has been quite a corrupt and dangerous leader. On the other hand, his base of support (for whatever reason) seems to be the poor of Thailand, with the better off middle classes opposing him. Andre Vltchek argues this point of view in his article Old Elites Against New. So I don’t know – any points of view on this?
