plenaryhall16.jpgThailand, a country represented by a rich culture has gained worldwide attention once again through a coup d’etat on September 16th. While Prime Minster Thaksin Shinawatra was at the United Nations for the opening of the General Assembly little did he know that he would soon be ousted by his military. Although, I certainly do not encourage the overthrowing of our elected officials. I do feel that the Thai people want what is best for their country and are not afraid to take measures, although drastic, to ensure the prosperity of Thailand. I wish to some extent that the citizens of the United States had enough political will to demand a halt to the abuse of powers that is being exercised by the Bush Administration. Unfortunately, the political will is far too weak to accomplish even a legal way to end the Bush Administration.

So with that, I hope that the future government of Thailand will act in such a way that it promotes the rule of law, a zero tolerance for corruption within its political system and continues to contribute to the stability of East Asia.
