[This shows how every army chief vows they will not conduct a coup. However, coups occur again and again. such as in 2006 and 2014 as shown in the cartoon.
The cartoonist implies that current army chief Gen. Apirat’s pledges are no more true that those of army chiefs in the past and that the army always holds out the option of a coup if it thinks it necessary.]
