Thai Military Launches Offensive against Its own Citizens

Al Jazzera English provides on the scene video of the unfolding military offensive against the ‘Red Shirt’ protesters in the Thai capital Bangkok.  There have been stunning pictures coming out of the city as large plumes of smoke from burning tire barricades could the sky.  The ‘Red Shirt’ protesters have occupied one part of Bangkok or another for going on 10 weeks now.  Thus far the Thai state had refrained from any major confrontation, although plenty of smaller ones have occurred in the past.
