[From the book ‘Vietnamese plan to occupy Thailand’ written by Prasit Chaithongphan. It is about the expansion of communism from Vietnam to Thailand during the Cold War.
This was part of a fear of the Vietnamese war “domino effect” that might eventually engulf Thailand. Such external fears helped to stoke the right-wing backlash of October 1976 against protesting students in Thailand.]
