Thai's losing freedom

A report in Thai English-language newspaper, The Nation, states that 'protesters disrupting tomorrow's Olympic-torch relay will be arrested immediately and prosecuted for public disturbance...foreigners will be expelled and banned from returning.'

It seems the current government in Thailand is more interested in sucking up to the Chinese government than allowing their own people and visitors the right to freedom of expression—to express, if they wish, their solidarity with fellow Buddhists in Tibet.

A large proportion of the Thai population has Chinese blood—more than the Tibetans. It wouldn't be a huge step for the Chinese dictators to decide that Thailand too is part of China. If they could do it in Tibet, why not here?
