A very complex situation. No telling where it will go, but the David-vs-Goliath protests are indeed escalating.

was your piece about the soviets activity in South America. Much closer to home. How do you think this syncs with changes in Washington? My guess would be that we will hear more about international politics with Obama in office.

Chavez is the kind of demagogue popular in Latin America. Could be a replay of Cuba, except Hugo has OIL !!

rioting against the majority Buddhist government. No doubt the US is interested in 'suppressing terrorists' as well; US and Thailand have a relationship going back to Vietnam War.
As is common in the Third World, corruption leaves many dissatisfied with the government. Search the BBC for stories about the current and previous PMs; as if US Justice Dept. had hauled off both Clinton and Bush for siphoning cash. That is what the airport riots are, I believe.
