BTW, I cant believe you said that the usa would had joined the war earlier that perhaps all those jew wouldnt had died. Are you seriously trying to blame the holocaust on america? LMAO
Maybe you should study your own histroy of ww2. Sure, there was japaneese resistance in thailand by some govt repersenatives and some civilans, however, as a whole, the govt of thailand was an ally with japan. And even declared war on the usa. However, at the time, the ambassor of the thai govt refused to deliver the document in washington. Still, nevertheless, the thai govt was an ally of the axis, thus gogogbar, basically, your govt was also responsible for the holocaust, and also, the rape and prilmerges of china.
Japan.LOL. Not even the colonised Phillipines with the strength and might of the US Army led by the brilliant McArtur could withstand the Japanese. The mighty McArtur had to flee to the safe haven of Australia.
Is the Phillipines culpable also?

I love it when the USA likes to compare itself to 2nd world countries.

Us Muerder rate 4.8/100K
Thai..........4.8/100K

Now since you have, and continue to critize the usa and other western nations, how about us talk about whats wrong and corrupt with the thai military?

Military Keynesianism is the theory that John Maynard Keynes advocated government economic policy in which the government devotes large amounts of spending to the military in an effort to increase economic growth.

We could talk about Thailand but I dont speak the language that competently.
But the reason the murder rate here is very high is because of the guns.

A naked 38-year-old American tourist was caught with a 13-year-old prostitute in a “short time” hotel room on Soi 13/1. Undercover police were watching the girl on Beach Road, and later arrested them in the room. The man claimed the girl lied and said she was 19 years old

"The Law aint takin my guns"

Neighbors describe Jimmy Lee Dykes, the 65-year-old Vietnam war veteran holding a 6-year-old child hostage in a bunker he constructed underneath his house, as a paranoid and aggressive survivalist who repeatedly threatened his neighbors with firearms.

Tim Byrd, an investigator with the Dale County Sheriff’s office described Dykes to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Hatewatch blog as a “survivalist” with “anti-America” views and ties to anti-government extremist.

Commuinicating throu a PVC sewage pipe Jimmi Lee has been speaking about his second ammendment rights and the founding fathers intention that guns are for the individual to assert his freedom to do what he goddamn pleases.

“His friends and his neighbors stated that he did not trust the government, that he was a Vietnam vet, and that he had PTSD,” Byrd said.“He was standoffish, didn’t socialize or have any contact with anybody. He was a survivalist type.”

The only military guys I have met here was at a benefit to raise money for Cambodian refugees who are victims of landmines in Cambodia.
They train Cambodian Military and Civillian NGO's in mine and bomb disposal from the Vietnam War.
However the benefit was to raise money for artificial limbs, mostly for children.

Seeing it is now on international news, and is a current topic, it seems fitting to mention it.

It pretty well sums up the gun control debate.

Im sure there are some indivisuals there in the military who have a heart and are nice guys, however, i wasnt talking about indivisuals, i was prefering to the military establishment itself.

BTW, that litter deer incident you and I had a few days ago, another poster pointed it out to me, you had me mistaken for some poster caller aquaris, for so you would know. So I apologize for calling you a two faced liar, instead, you were only mistaken.

Apology accepted :p

You can post anything you know about the Thai Military you like.
Why you wish to, I dont know.
Start with where they are engaged if you wish to be relevant. In the Sothern border Islamic insurgency.

Looks like islam has declared war on the world, yet they are a relegion of peace they say, I just dont understand it. Looks like they want the entire world to go to war, and it may very well happen. But I dont think it will turn out they way they hope and envision, if they really do get their 'holy war' it may very well be the end of islam. Which personally I think would be a wonderful thing.
