From Thairath, January 7, 2013
Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra: This year… let’s think positive brothers and sisters.
Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Affair Minister Surapong Towichakchaikul: The best is we break even, the worst is we lose… and are accused of being traitors.
Signs from left: Do not accept the World Court’s verdict; Take the Preah Vihear back
Headbands from left: Liberate the country; Topple the government
Mouse man Phi Nooring: Think positive, Mr. Minister.
Man mouse: Peace is better than war.
[This refers to the case of Preah Vihear which was brought to the International Court of Justice by the Cambodian government. Surapong’s comment saying that he thought Thailand would either be even or lose this time meant for some a lack of determination to fight for the country.]
From Manager, January 10, 2013
Cambodian Prime Minister Hunsen: Faster stupid dog.
Thaksin Shinawatra: Take it easy, Hunsen. What you told Pueng to bring you… is much heavier than my passport.
Caption: The dog bites something again
[‘Pueng’ is nickname of Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Surapong Towichakchaikul. Pueng is biting on the foundation of the Preah Vihear.]
