When Defense is under Samak's control, peace will be kept safe and sound in drawer - translated and summarized from Komchadluek, February 1, 2008
It is very likely that the new Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej will be appointed Defense Minister. A peaceful relationship between the old power clique and the armed forces is expected to stumble if the premier takes the helm of the Ministry of Defense. His harsh personality will do no good to the relationship. The columnist is confident that the appointment follows an order of a certain person staying abroad. Defense Minister General Boonrawd Samatas worries that the new defense minister will not understand the military forces and intervene in the forces. Rumor has it that General Sonthi Boonyaratglin will be named Defense Minister in the next three months.
