(Christian Science Monitor)   If you are a US expat, something you REALLY don't want to hear from your local embassy is: things are likely about to get really bad in this country, we strongly suggest you stockpile food and cash right now   ( divider line

ShawnDoc: doglover: Do you know what I heard from the Tokyo embassy after the big 2011 earthquake?

Nothing. I'm sure statements were released, but it's not like the embassy actually calls you or anything. They release these statements in the US media, only.

The embassy in Bangkok seems to do most of its communication via Twitter and their website.  Its not like they go door to door looking for Americans to warn them.

That said, these protests have been going on since November with little real impact, outside a few small areas in Bangkok.  This isn't the first time they've shut down streets, and the turn out hasn't been as big as expected (they had to delay the shutdown by one week and reduced the number of locations being shut down from 20 to 7).  That said, if the protests lead to another coup, their is a small chance a civil war breaks out.

Yeah, but if it's a CIVIL war, then it will be okay.

A bunch of gents in suits and bowler cups arguing quietly over a few cups of tea in the street? Quickly, shore up the flank with some coffee and tables. The enemy's here and he's got CRULLERS. Oh no, it's Auntie Em and she wants her Tupperware back. Fall back, fall back, excuse me sir, we're falling back. Thank you so much.
