Thailand's Revolt is Crushed

Thailand’s military has tamed a revolt that wounded more than 100 and left parts of the capital smoldering. The Thai army finally ended weeks of raucous protests designed to humiliate Thailand’s government on Tuesday. Thousands of soldiers ringed the protesters’ main encampment, the prime minister’s invaded compound and slowly closed in with M-16s and armed personnel carriers. Defiant until the end, the political faction known as the “red shirts” vowed to regroup in the future.
