A discussion about the political turmoil in Thailand, brought on by the red-shirted supporters of the former prime minister, Mr Thaksin, and aimed at the government of Abhisit Vejjajiva. This is the second major 'popular protest' against an incumbent government in a short period of time and may lead to significant political reforms in the Thai kingdom.

It was a good interview. Andrew did well and a got a little dig in at The Nation.
I think it is important when Western scholars speak about Thai politics, because it seems that they know what they are talking about for one, and it counters a lot of government propaganda that gets regurgitated in the English language Thai media, which only care about their vendettas against Thaksin.
Kavi did alright(being a spokesperson for the military), but he should give his Democracy Award back to the US and stop claiming he is a free speech advocate-- especially when he believes in neither principle.
