now they've gone too far

Live bullets are openly being used by police in Bangkok against the red-shirt demonstrators.  Ban Ki-moon saying "Now, now" is not good enough.  This must stop.  Part of the advantage of a monarchy is that most citizens of a country, while they may turn on their government, will not turn on their monarch, who thus may have a role to play in times of constitutional crisis.  This is true in Thailand, where the monarch is venerated.  So, Your Majesty?  Anyone? (sound of tumbleweed)
