Without commenting on the accuracy or content of either, i’d like to share two wildly divergent perspectives on the current situation in Thailand.

1. Click here SMH Article 18May10 for Peter Hartcher’s op-ed piece in the Sydney Morning Herald titled “Scheming king unwilling to stop the violence on Bangkok’s streets”

2. Click here Ambassador letter in response for the full letter to the editor of the Sydney Morning Herald (not published in the newspaper) from the Thai Ambassador in Australia Mr Kriangsak Kittichaisaree

I’ll leave it to you to interpret as you will. I’m sure you’ll agree, a highly emotive disagreement.
