From Thairath, May 19, 2015
Uncle Sam: Go over there… That place has a lot of food.

[Uncle Sam, representing the U.S., points to Gen. Prayuth. This cartoon reflects the viewpoint of some Thais that the U.S. and other Western countries are pressuring Thailand to help Rohingya migrants by setting up migrant camps in the country.
From a Thai perspective, Thailand has already contributed to helping refugees for decades by hosting camps for those fleeing strife in both Cambodia and Laos, as well as Myanmar. There is little desire to commit to more long-term hosting of refugees.]
