Left, Thaksin Shinawatra: Khun Prayuth… I can wait… I’m in no rush [‘Khun Prayuth’ is Gen. Prayuth Chan-ocha, head of the National Council for Peace and Order.]
Left caption: He said this…
Right, Gen. Prayuth: Thank you for not rushing me…
Right caption: …should thank him.
[Reference is to Gen. Prayuth’s claim that his mission is to restore Thailand’s situation to normal, both politically and socially. He asked everyone to wait be patient, and then later all can return to politics, including the Shinawatra family, particularly Thaksin if he is certain of his innocence and willing to prove it by returning to Thailand to fight in court.
The cartoonist seems to indicate Prayuth is lucky Thaksin has not ordered resistance to the coup as originally promised. This has given the military free reign since the coup. Thaksin has probably decided to wait out the military reforms, confident a party he controls can once again return to power in a future election.]
