Eager for more conflict

From Daily News, September 27, 2018
On Man: Thanathorn
His tongue: Discourse [or rhetoric]
He says: Hungry…
On bowl: The Democrats are bloodstained.
Left: Conflict
Center: Cheat
On the sign: Corruption
Right: Burning city [showing one of the Red Shirts burning the city]

[This negatively refers to Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit, leader of the Future Forward Party who recently criticized the junta as part of a vicious repeating cycle in Thailand’s politics and called on PM Prayuth to debate his policies.
The cartoonist is contending that Thanathorn’s many pronouncements and political positions are always presented in the most controversial manner–with many bold positions made that are sure to provoke conflict again.
Among these are promises to once again remove the military from handling the violence in the south along with an immediate rewrite of the constitution and amnesty for “political prisoners.”
As such issues were at the root of past political strife, the cartoonist seems to think Thanathorn must be eager for more conflict.]
