You think Thailand is your colony?

From an image being circulated on social media: America is evil. You think Thailand is your colony? Or has Ai Maew already sold our country to you?

[This cartoon criticizes the role of the US in attempting to intervene in Thai politics. As quick elections would return Thaksin and his party to power, it is assumed that those who call for them want a Thaksin return to power for some reason. The graphic also raises the issues that first sparked mass protests against Thaksin rule–the “sale” of the country through Thaksin’s divestiture of his business holdings to a Singapore company.
Thaksin, whose nickname is Maew, is refered to here with the impolite “Ai” proceeding his name.]
