Calm in Thailand after Bloodless Military Coup

Hosted by

The King of Thailand has blessed yesterday's military coup by appointing its leading general as head of a so-called "council of administrative reform."  The replacement of democracy with military rule has been bloodless, so far, but it raises questions about who is running an important US ally. While American tourists might not be affected by the political instability, it's quite another story for investors and Western governments.
