Deposed Thai PM speaks to media in Australia

Accused by the 'Yellow' government in Bangkok for "terrorism", ex-PM Thaksin spoke yesterday to Lateline , a programme of the Australian Broadcasting Corportation (ABC) . According to Thaksin, the violence which occured recently in Bangkok was a "professionally done" set-up. The identity of the shadowy and armed 'Black Shirts' is now a subject of speculation among many observers and also analysts of the unrest. Most observers and analysts opine that, like it or hate it, the political situations in Thailand would remain unstable for years to come as the Buddhist-predominant country is pretty deeply divided or fragmented. The protracted crisis in Thailand can be traced back to 2006 when the popularly and constitutionally elected Thaksin government was ousted in a military coup backed by civilian royalists known as 'Yellow Shirts'.
