Nobody obstructs rice payments this time

From Thairath, May 30, 2014
Cartoon title: It’s like a god-given gift.
On money bag in military officer’s hand: Rice pledging payments
On sign in rice farmers’ hands: Thank you for helping farmers.
Phi Nooring: Nobody obstructs it this time.
Mouse: Rice farmers are out of poverty.
[Cartoonist Sia is still being more circumspect than usual in criticizing the military. The point he is making here is that the anti-government protesters effectively blocked the government from acting on making promised payments to rice farmers. Now that the military has swept away the government, the military is portraying themselves as heroes for making the payments that protesters earlier blocked.]
