Hand-to-hand fights in the streets

After a week of high-profile public relations victories, the red-shirted anti-government group and its leader and benefactor, exiled former Thai premier Thaksin Shinawatra, were dealt an iron-fisted military defeat by the government they attempted to overthrow. Perhaps more important, the people of Bangkok have voted with their fists.
I hold no view about the efficacy of any faction’s positions. These are for Thai people to decide for themselves.
I will say that I admire Thai people so much for their willingness to take action to affect their future. Were Americans to have only one tenth the courage and determination.
