Najib's safe. Tens of thousands of pro-Thaksin supporters overwhelmed security at the 14th Asean Summit, forcing the organisers to postpone the meeting and airlift the leaders by helicopter.
Najib Razak, on his first overseas assignment since taking over as PM of Malaysia, must have had a bird's eye view of the power of the demonstrating people.
It makes me wonder how he'd deal with such a massive protest at home.
I wonder, too, if some of us would be inspired by the Pattaya reformasi to deal with the Government. Malaysia has seen a fair share of street demonstrations in the last couple of years, all of them peaceful and organised. If you ask me, I think they should stay that way.
