I normally try and refrain from using words such as "chaos" and "disarray" when talking about Thailand because the media has a habit of painting an unrealistic picture. However, in this instance, I don't know how else to describe the situation. If you want to keep up with what's happening live, visit Bangkok Pundit. Also, log on to Twitter and follow Andrew, Newley, Sajal, Stuart, Rikker, ThaiCoup.

What's happening in Thailand now is beyond what happened during the coup of 2006. It may even be beyond the airport closures. It's difficult to tell right now. There's a state of emergency in five provinces. The maddest thing I've read thus far is this from Nation:

Jatuporn Promphan Sunday urged red-shirted protesters to rise up against the government and attack Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva and Deputy Prime Minister Suthep Thaugsuban as first sight.

If I'm not mistaken, that's a former Thai Rak Thai member telling anti-government protesters to attack the prime minister.

It looks very much as if the army is going to act soon. There are already unconfirmed reports of protesters being killed.
