Thai Army Takes Power In Military Coup

Posted UK, Friday 23 May 2014 http://news.sky.com/story/1266765/thai-army-takes-power-in-military-coup
British citizens are warned to exercise “extreme caution” in Thailand as the army seizes power and imposes a nationwide curfew.

Thailand has woken up to its first day under military leadership since the country’s army chief took control of the government following months of deadly clashes.

General Prayuth Chan-ocha said on Thursday said the move was to allow the country to “return to normal quickly”.

The constitution is being suspended, and all cabinet ministers must report to the military, he said.

A nationwide curfew started at 10pm local time on Thursday (2pm UK time), to last for seven hours.

The normally busy entertainment district of Patpong was deserted after the curfew began.

Meetings of more than five people were also banned.

All TV and radio stations have been ordered to stop normal programmes and only broadcast army material.

After the curfew had begun, the army announced that social media would be blocked if it contained any content “provoking violence or opposing their military coup”.

    […]the United States saying it was reviewing its military aid and other dealings with its closest ally in Southeast Asia.

    Thailand’s army chief, General Prayuth Chan-ocha, seized control of the government two days after he declared martial law, saying the military had to restore order and push through reforms after six months of turmoil.
    […]
    “There is no justification for this military coup,” U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said in a blunt statement.
    “This act will have negative implications for the U.S.-Thai relationship, especially for our relationship with the Thai military. We are reviewing our military and other assistance and engagements, consistent with U.S. law.” -Read More: http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/05/22/us-thailand-protest-reaction-idUSBREA4L0ZH20140522

    That Military Coup In Thailand Could Get Awkward For The US

    May 22, 2014
    Thailand is a major non-NATO ally, on par with Egypt, the Philippines and Israel. It hosts Cobra Gold, one of the world’s largest annual military exercises and a lynchpin of U.S.-led regional military cooperation. The Thai and U.S. governments conduct over 40 other joint military exercises each year.

    The Thai government also receives excess defense articles, or military equipment that the U.S. no longer wants. In 2012, Thailand used its EDA procurement abilities to obtain 75 utility trucks from the U.S. military, several M930 military-grade dump trucks, and five Pratt and Whitney-made aircraft engines.
    the U.S. provides several million dollars of various forms of military assistance to Thailand each year.
