Coup or Assassination?

150303hairathchai

From Thairath, March 3, 2015
Left: Thailand may not be a democracy, because we overthrow an undesirable leader with a coup…
Middle: Man: But we’re proud of our way of democracy.
Uncle Sam: What’s the thing that made you so proud?
Right: We never get rid of our undesirable leaders by assassination.
[This cartoon criticizes on the U.S. call for quick elections and the Thai perception that this is interference in Thai internal affairs. The cartoonist contends that, in U.S. history, some of their leaders were assassinated for political reasons and this was not as desirable as having a bloodless coup.]
