Thai Coup, Thai Blogs

As everyone will likely know by now, there’s been a military coup in Thailand, apparently successful, from what early reports say; and martial law has been declared. The military has reportedly taken control of the major media outlets. The CBC has good coverage.

I thought it might be interesting to see what Thai bloggers (those who blog in English) have to say. I’ve found one called 2Bangkok that already has a fair bit on the coup; and another, Law and Life in Bangkok, that hasn’t got around to posting about it yet. There will, of course, be others, so let us know if you come across good sources.

“Martial law” is interesting, almost a contradiction in terms. Wikipedia contains nothing of great interest — although I have to note that, astonishingly, someone has already updated the article to refer to today’s coup.
