Japan Times Editorial: Thailand's Troubles Continue

Thailand's troubles continue

It was expected that any instability that followed last September's coup in Thailand would be short-lived. Supporters even hoped that the military-led government would lessen uncertainty, end corruption and soothe the tensions that fuel a Muslim insurgency in the country's southern provinces. Those hopes have gone unanswered. Instead, the government has mishandled the economy and the unrest has intensified. The situation in Thailand is only growing worse.


When the Japanese start criticizing Thailand in newspaper editorials, then you know things are bad.
