THE Thai army seized control of Bangkok today without a shot being fired, dismissed Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, revoked the constitution and promised a swift return to democracy after political reforms.
The seizure would be temporary and power "returned to the people" soon, retired Lieutenant-General Prapart Sakuntanak said on all Thai television channels.
Foreign news channels, including CNN and the BBC, were cut off.

B) Generally western media is portraying this takeover as a BAD thing, so that goes to show you who wanted Taksin in power. Interesting he fled to ENGLAND with the rest of his party.
