The logic of the American


From Naewna, May 17, 2016
Uncle Sam says to PM Prayuth: A man the right to burn his house and city [assets] because he doesn’t burn others’ houses.
On the sign: Against the human rights problems in Thailand
Caption: The logic of the American

[The cartoon criticizes the U.S. calling on the junta to stop violating human rights. “Assets” here means that it is ok for Thaksin to hurt Thailand because it is his property, but it will be a problem if he destroys the U.S. or other country. This cartoon implies that the U.S. is closing its eyes to understanding the Thai issues surrounding Thaksin and his activities in order to criticize Thailand.]
