From Thairath, August 16, 2017
Left, Thai man: Thailand doesn’t need to pay more than 800 million to buy a Harpoon missile…
Middle, Thai man: …from you because our country doesn’t have a war with other countries.
Uncle Sam: Of course you have. I’ve carried out a surveillance of you and found it.
Right, Uncle Sam: …you’re going to have a war because I’m now encourage you to buy a weapon to help us fight with North Korea.
[Refers to U.S. approval of the sale of RGM-84L Harpoon Block II anti-ship missiles to Thailand.
Such continuing massive military purchases under a military run government alarms many Thais who see no need for their relatively passive country to arm itself with high-priced weapons.]
