Your Crumbling Democracy Quiz

Here is a four-question quiz created using your Chicago Tribune. See if you can fill in the blanks:
In the dead of night and without firing a shot, A's military overthrew popularly elected B on Tuesday after mounting criticism that he has undermined democracy. *** Many analysts have said that with B in power, peace in C was unlikely. *** [H]e alienated the urban middle class, intellectuals and pro-democracy activists. They began street demonstrations late last year, charging B with abuse of power, corruption and emasculation of the country's democratic institutions, including what was once one of D's freest presses.
The correct answers are:
A. Thailand
B. Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra
C. the south
D. Asia

Sadly, the answers "United States of America", "George W. Bush", "Iraq" and "the world" also score partial credit.
