Globalization: 1) Wide-spread global condemnation of Prayuth’s coup

After Thai army general Prayuth staged a coup, much of the governments globally have come out and criticized Thai military, with most saying there is no reason for the coup. Many noted, Thailand ranks 4th globally, for number of coups sdtaged or attempted, and many called this, Thailand’s “Coup Culture.”

However, that much of the global reaction, is the first wave, and it needds to be seen, how authoritarian countries, such as China will react, as the coup, clearly puts Thailand, in league with most authoritarian regime around the globe. The following are some links of global, initial, reaction to the Thai coup.
