Nazi analogies...in the small amount of time the army has had the wheel, things are changing (outwardly, it seems) for the better...another year of the ousted Thai government and the cupboard would have been completely bare, along with people ripping each other's faces off (Red vs. Yellow, etc...)...Thailand would have (from a personal perspective) tanked really badly...as I've read, Germany was carrying some serious baggage from WW1 (and held responsible by some as a major cause for what transpired '39 to '45)...had that not been the case, it's possible the Austrian might not have been successful creating the nasty behemoth that he did...apples and oranges on other levels as well...so, just thinking 'out loud'...

Seems that the big reason for ousting the gov't was corruption and that the main point of corruption was the gov't's rice buying scheme. The junta did a thorough search of the rice warehouses which were part of the scheme. I don't recall them finding any evidence of corruption.....there was some rice that was stolen and some of the thieves were caught as I recall....and there was some spoilage as I recall.....but I don't recall anything that implicated the Yingluck gov't in any corruption. Did I miss something? Was some corruption uncovered?....or was the alleged corruption just an excuse to oust the gov't? If there was no corruption found was there an apology made for the false allegations?
