U.S. Ambassador Kristie Kenney, giving the three-fingered anti-coup salute from The Hunger Games: What!?… Are you afraid of them so much that you dare not wear red shirts? Dare to uphold your principles… Like me!

[From left are Red Shirt leaders Thida Thavornseth, Dr. Weng Tochiarakarn, Nutthawut Saikua and Jatuporn Promphan.
The cartoonist ridicules the Red Shirt leaders for giving up their principles as they have not spoken up for Thaksin nor advocated an uprising against the junta as they had long promised before the coup.
Photos circulated on social media have shown U.S. officials meeting with Red Shirt grassroots groups amid U.S. calls for Thailand to hold elections quickly.
The cartoon’s joke is that the U.S. ambassador is the best Red Shirt because she is openly speaking out against the military when the Red Shirt leadership will not.]
