Thailand Coup D'Etat

This morning, I was shocked by several news I read in blogosphere. Last night the Army of Thailand has try to take government power from the prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra. Well, it's true that in the last several years, there has been some incidents in the southern region of Thailand where the majority is Muslim. And the popularity of Thaksin has decreased by the controversial sell of Shin Corporation to Temasek Holdings, Singapore. But how come the country such as Thailand could be hit by such circumstances?

Thailand is a beautiful country. Several big Hollywood movies has been filmed there. Rambo III, The Beach, and James Bond : Tomorrow Never Dies are some of them. And don't forget of the upcoming movie, which is made to commemorating Tsunami victims in Thailand. I hope the crisis won't last long, so filmmakers not afraid making movies in Thailand.

By the way, Temasek is Singapore name given by Majapahit army. The word means sea town.
