Here's a potted history of some of Thaksin’s stunts: There are 3 short articles on one page during February - April 2006, 9 September, and more recent ones on 20 September (the day after the military coup), 5 October, and 13 October. These articles don't include the summary street executions of about 2,500 Thais during Thaksin's notorious 'War on Drugs'.
