"Thai Protesters Revel, the Government Reels and the Army Wavers"
In this case, the title says it all. The protesters would appear to have won. What they've won, however, is not yet clear. The Prime Minister has not resigned. The ruling party has not been disbanded (allthough it finds itself in some administrative peril). And protesters do not appear to have a governing party or plan firmly in place. Once the celebration ends, the Red Shirts will need to do the hard work of forming a government and a plan of action. And they will have to work very hard indeed to avoid the fate of the Yellow Shirts. Remember them?
