On March 16, at 8:30 pm, Mr. Sondhi Limthongkul discussed the iTV program while hosting an ASTV’s programme called ‘Yam Phao Pan Din’. He agreed with former prime minister Anan Panyarachun’s special lecture at Government House that Thailand has not focused its efforts on getting rid of corruption.
| Mr. Sondhi also analysed that southern situation. He thinks that the violence in the south might be related to western countries, especially the USA. The United States could theoretically back the movement through other countries like Australia and Singapore for the benefit of natural oil and gas assets.
He also cited historical examples of the United States being secretly responsible for economic or political changes in many countries, such as Iran.
He thought that Thai people should change their attitudes and ways of thinking in a bid to survive.
