So are we still in deep military long-haul?
Some people may tolerate it and wait for the election, and some believe the transitional period will eventually pass.
I don't think we could afford to have a rigid military power forever.
We have the monarchy as a counter-pillar. The military can't have absolute power like what happened in other countries' histories. After all, the Thai military doesn't have that unity. They may have discipline and order while sharing resources and interests.
