[Another image on social media condemning the actions of the new U.S. Ambassador to Thailand Glyn T. Davies. In the week before the King’s birthday celebrations, the ambassador criticized lese majeste prosecutions. This, along with calls for a quick return to elections, has led to many conspiracy theories among Thais about what the U.S. really intends in Thailand. Since quick elections would inevitably return Thaksin to power once again and Thaksin has been condemned as a very undemocratic leader by his opponents, some suspect the U.S. wishes a Thaksin government in power to advance its own interests in the region. More of these]
On the image above, from a speech by Sunan Srichanthra: The U.S.’s goal is not democracy, but they want ‘Thaksin’ to come back and have power. If ‘Thaksin’ won’t return, their benefits they expect to take from Thailand will not be achieved. How Prayuth’s government will respond to the U.S. for their slanders and how to deal with ‘abusive ambassador’ Davies who defamed Thailand?
