The military won’t give you want you want!

From Thairath, April 6, 2017
Title: People also want to ask… want to have…
Above left, soldier: I want military tanks.
Man: Ok, deal
On flag: Tanks from people’s taxes.

Above center, soldier: I want jets.
Man: Ok, deal.
On flag: Jets from people’s taxes.

Above right, soldier: I want submarines.
Man: Ok, take it.
On flag: Submarines from people’s taxes.

Below left, soldiers: What do you want?
Man: I want…
Below center, man: Freedom, justice and democracy.
Below right, soldiers: You ask too much… have to wait until next life.

[This humorously contrasts the military government’s spending spree on weaponry with the reaction to activists who demand democracy.]
