    Wink please correct me

    Please correct the grammar and vocabs of my article and if you think it;s not in proper form please correct it too^^


    this is it:
    The military junta of the Thailand has been reputated incompetant.

    But now the Thailand junta is recognized world-widely as it attacks the

    foreign major medicine-manufacturing companies like Merck, sanofi-aventis,

    and Bristol-myers squibb. Since last November, the Thailand government has

    allowed to produce the duplication of two types of foreign AIDS medicines

    and one of blood clot remover. It was the measure nased on the ambiguous

    regulation of WTO allowing government to abolish medical tenant when

    public health-care is in trouble. Due to this measure, the medical fee burden

    of patients has been reduced to 90% maximum. In this moment, the Thailand

    government is pressuring the foreign medical-manufacturing companys to

    discount other medical prices. Last month, Monkol Na Songkha, the health-

    care minister, warned " we are ready to act if the negotiation of medicine fee

    is failed".




    The experts metaphor the medicine regulation of WTO as a nuclear weapon.

    Never used but the best hold-back measure. Since that regulation became in

    effect in 2001, the medicine manufacturing companies have been avoided

    the worst situation, through adopting measures, including discount of

    medicine price and allowing poor countries to use more free- use period.

    Thailand became the first country among mid- income sountries which

    practically stopped the tenans of the foreign medicine_manufacturing

    companies based on the regulation of WTO.

    if other mid-income countries follow the precedent of Thailand, this country ,

    with 2,750 dollars GDP, will be the representative example of reducing greatly

    of the revenue of the foreign medicine companies.
