The caption reads: Special campaign to greet the coup festival - Cheer up, Thaksin! – Do not throw more than 2 bottles a day! [Employing Molotov cocktails has been often mentioned in Red Shirt speeches. In this cartoon, imagery and advertising slogans from a popular energy drink are used along with the warning on the bottle advises not to drink (or throw) more than two bottles per day.]

Some top examples are on these pages:

Interview with freed red sympathizer - Bangkok Post, June 15, 2010

[Calling Somyot Prueksakasemsuk a "sympathizer" is perhaps too kind. For nearly a year he ran a magazine that used bloody images to threaten the prime minister, insinuate that judges who rule against Thaksin be assassinated, champion the use of grenades (here and here) and molotov cocktails, and encourage people to "bomb" and "slay" aristocrats.]

...The market is the Thaksin fans. Red News has more than 30,000 sales while Voice of Thaksin has 20,000 copies, both bi-weekly.
I don’t have to receive money from Thaksin. I  was also against him when he was the prime minister, check my background.
Authorities, more or less, followed the debates in the news, questioning the motives of certain editions such as "Jack Queen King" (cards), "Taksin return", and the fall of the Nepalese and French monarchies
