U.S. Conspiracy


From Thairath, December 5, 2015
Caption: Sky target?
Mouse man: An unknown thing in the sky.
Mouse: How could they have come this far? [meaning something like, “how could it have come to this?”]

[This refers to the FAA downgrade of Thai Airways safety record on December 2.
The prominence of the US’s role in the downgrade in the cartoon seems to relate to Thais’ interpretations of calls for a quick return to democracy. Thai resistance to quick elections means (to some Thais) that the U.S. is trying to destabilize Thailand by any means they can.
The cartoon may also simply lament the fact that hapless Thai Airways, for some reason, was unable to avoid getting into trouble with the FAA.]
