Thailand post-coup government

The new post-coup cabinet has been sworn in by the king of Thailand.  It includes lost of economists and diplomats, and many seem encouraged by this fact.

However the king is still supportive of this process so we’ll have to see where it goes.  Hoping and praying for democracy to take a solid foothold in Thailand, but I think that democracy must come with a strict respect for the rule of law and the idea of personal freedom before countries in Asia and Africa start to show success in this area.  As good a chance as any have the Thai.
