Thailand Coup Deja Vu

Some 8 years ago, the former Prime Minister Thaskin Shinawatra was overthrown in a military coup during a vi. Now his sister and the former PM Yingluck Shinawatra has been overthrown by the same military. In the same vein as Egypt, the military has presented itself as the best disciplinary leadership for the country. Like both Shinawatra siblings, the military takes over in the middle of nation wide anti-government protests and upcoming elections. The US has been relatively quiet about the coup in Thailand accept for condemning it in press conferences. Protests against the corruption and abuses by the Shinawatra government is making a combat despite military intimidating civilians with tanks and a show of force. The United States canceled another military exercise with the Thai military following the coup.
