Bangkok airport. Protesters attacking police

So far, protesters at two Bangkok airports are still in control. They’ve seized the airports, with police unable to dislodge them and have even attacked police.

Some 400 protesters sped toward a checkpoint at the city’s main airport, hitting police vehicles and smashing windshields as some 150 officers fled. Video appears to show one demonstrator firing a handgun at a police van.

This seems a very dangerous game. But I guess it depends on whether the government is still functioning with the army and police still loyal. A collapsing government won’t have the ability to order troops in. A functioning government could simply cut power and water to the airports, issue an ultimatum, then send in the commandos against whoever remains.
