Court Rules Against Thaksin

In a decision that was anything but shocking, the Thai Supreme Court found against Thaksin on all charges (I think) and ordered the confiscation of 46 billion of the 76 billion baht in his assets seized.  I guess it wasn't a total loss for the former PM, as they didn't find a reason to seize the entire 76 billion. 

I'm sure this will send a message to all Thai politicians that corruption will not be tolerated, no matter your political party.  That this is a new day in Thai politics and for the Thai people.  Ha, the pain meds must be talking, it doesn't mean that at all.
