The argument that the Indonesian military could follow the coup path of the Thai military is unfounded, at least for the near future. The TNI has neither the norms, capacity, nor opportunity to do so. Any military political intervention however can be avoided by having a new balance between the officer corps, political leadership, and civilian defence community.
