  •  So a street protest that shuts down traffic (0+ / 0-)

    is an act of terrorism ?

    Tens of thousands of protesters have disrupted traffic at major intersections and marched on government offices in Thailand's large and hectic capital city this week.

    The protests, dubbed "Bangkok shutdown," had begun Monday without serious incident. But on Tuesday night, two people were shot and wounded, an explosive device was thrown at an opposition leader's house, buses were set alight and police officers were attacked, according to authorities.

    The protesters say they want Thailand's political system overhauled instead of new elections scheduled for next month. They're demanding that Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra's government be replaced with an unelected "people's council."

    •  Yes it is, if U.S. law applies in Thailand (0+ / 0-)

      Do you think "shuts down traffic" is the ideal term for what happened in Ft. Lee?
