Maybe I Should Be Teacing Civ-Mil This Fall

The killing of a Thai general while being interviewed sent more than a few shockwaves out.  I have not been following the Thai situation closely, but I don't think I am the only one who is confused.  Was he killed to shut him up?  Because he was working with the protesters?  Because he may have been involved in some previous repression?

I don't know, but it puts into perspective whenever anyone in the US, Canada or Europe asserts that they are facing a crisis in civil-military relations.  The Thais have a real crisis on their hands.  We have some serious issues, but nothing that will involve gunshots.
