Foreign Minister Unafraid

From ThaiRath, August 14, 2011
Cartoon says: With his sacred amulet, he’s not afraid of minefields. [This is new Foreign Minister Surapong Tovichakchaikul. He’s wearing a necklace with an amulet showing Thaksin Shinawatra instead of a Buddha image. The words on his back says “Foreign affairs.”]
Behind Surapong is former Foreign Minister Kasit Piromya, wearing a headband that says “Shadow minister” and holding a sign that says “Good food, great music.” [This refers to Kasit’s infamous quote that being with the PAD besieging the airport in 2008 was fun and that “the food was excellent, the music was excellent.”]
The mines in front of Surapong are labeled: PAD [People’s Alliance for Democracy], People, Poll, Opposition, Faith, Media, Government Officials
Sign next to Preah Vihear: Turn battlefields to trading fields [Surapong is apparently using the discredited bomb detection devices supplied to the military.]
