    on the issue of Pros and cons of TPP which has become an economic controversy

    nothing good to say about TPP with Uncle Sam other than the way to make Uncle Sam love us more at the expenses of our own interests

    Big Too telling the press that No need to be urgent to joint TPP as TPP is the controversial subjects due to the opened hatred by NGOs on healthcare who have been hurt by the strings attached from TPP while those businessmen are being lull with TPP deals without giving a damn to the string attached

    As expected – Ai Phichit Likitkijsomboon is acting like a sycophant for TPP Deal – so long he got fat by TPP deal, those who suffer from TPP deal do not matter after all – they are expendable like a cannon fodder so long those expendable have made them fatter …

Well We need TPP in our own terms, not the term that Uncle Sam is going to coerce us to accept – How about the new silk road of Red Dragon? We also need the new silk road in our own term, not the term red dragon is coiling to force us to accept either
