No longer as smooth as silk

No longer as smooth as silk - The Irrawaddy, January 17, 2007
...The irony is that if the Thai drama were to take place in Burma the likely scenario would be like this: Thaksin would be arrested, charged and barred from leaving the country;  like Burma’s ousted Prime Minister Gen Khin Nyunt, who is now under house arrest after receiving a suspended sentence of 44 years imprisonment, Thaksin would quickly find himself before a kangaroo court; the generals would make sure he served a lifelong prison sentence; his assets would be seized and members of his family would join him in jail or be confined to house arrest.
Would he get a chance to speak to CNN? The generals would undoubtedly say “Go to hell.”
