Thai Coup Attempt Underway

News just in, and apparently tanks have appeared on the streets of Bangkok. Much of Thai's media is in the hands of the government and the army (an after-taste of the days of dictatorship) and the military outlets are allegedly broadcasting images of the King after suspending normal programming.

Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra has declared a state of emergency. Too bad that he is in New York for the UN general assembly. Appearing on his own station the P.M ordered troops not to move illegally.

More soon.
