The demonstrations ended in violence with the army moving in exchanging fire with a small group of armed protesters, killing and injuring dozens of people.The BBC's Asia Correspondent, Alastair Leithead, traces the background to the crisis and asks what next for Thailand: is this class war or more about the ambitions of a former prime minister?

The e-card with Bangkok times is quite well done and is below:

I have not yet viewed the videos (busy, arn't we all) sadly I do not have much confidence in the media to tell the real story. The media have mislead the world about the politics of Thailand, in particular over the past 12 mths.

I believe I'm fair in my comment in regard to the Tourism issues and general situation of the people of Thailand. I visit Thailand every month from Australia and see a different situation than what the media portray.

Newspapers (Media) need readers to satisfy the sponsors advertising costs.
