The toy for expanding power

From Thairath, November 11, 2017
Title: A toy for expanding their power
On the soldier’s helmet: Return happiness [the junta’s motto]
On the uniform: Want to stay longer [meaning that the military wants to retain political power]
Under the cage: Political parties
On the sign held by the puppet: The NCPO party [National Council for Peace and Order, the junta]
Phi Nooring: It isn’t fair.
Mouse: A game of people who are afraid of losing [their power]
On the prison: Political party

[Refers to the rumor that the junta under the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) led by PM Prayuth will establish a military party to compete in the coming elections.
Many rules and regulations launched by junta are thought to be tools to enable the military to retain control and limit the actions of elected officials.]
