Relax, there won't be a civil war here

I have heard enough exaggerated talks about civil war. No, there won't be any civil war here. Talk about civil war and you are talking about two sides having an army of tens of thousands armed with M16s and bandoliers and all, supported by tanks, war plan



It is like what’s happening in Syria, Afghanistan and Libya, where conflicts last for years with several thousands dead and displaced.
Thailand is unique. Have you ever seen an anti-government protest anywhere on earth that comes with food and beverage pavilions, portable lavatories, souvenir shops and concert stages? I went to one and yes, good food and good music. We may have street brawls or small-scale terrorism or riots, but not civil war. 
Relax, Chicken Little, the sky is not falling.
