Court Ruling Brings Down Thai Government
Tuesday, December 02, 2008

BANGKOK, Thailand   A court dissolved Thailand's top three ruling parties for electoral fraud Tuesday and temporarily banned the prime minister from politics, bringing down a government that has faced months of strident protests seeking its ouster.

The Constitutional Court ruling set the stage for thousands of protesters to end their weeklong siege of the country's two main airports, but also raised fears of retaliatory violence by a pro-government group that could sink the country deeper into crisis and cripple its economy.

"We will abide by the law. The coalition parties will meet together to plan for its next move soon," he told The Associated Press.

Court President Chat Chalavorn said the court was dissolving the parties "to set a political standard and an example."

"Dishonest political parties undermine Thailand's democratic system," he said in the court's ruling.

I wonder if that could happen in the US?

I think the US has sham elections.  I base my opinion on what I observed in the primary.  No voter picture ID in many places.  Let anyone vote, no reference, no vetting = sham elections.
