They (The Superior Military of USA) leave all sorts of armaments behind for the Thai's during these so called visits.

 

Think a bunch of tanks are already on the gifted roster.

No they don't.  Silly to think so.  The guy who checks all of the arms shipments and receives them lives ........... and is posts under the name of .........  Well, you know I can't tell you.

I thought the Russian although not bricklaying, had been offering another 'laying' service in the form of sexual therapy in Pattaya.

and tittle-tattle ...

Boy! did you miss the point - went over like a pregnant pole vaulter...

I get it as a bit of a joke... But if anyone is curious...

The US soldiers don't have and don't need a work permit. If staying more than 30 days, we can get a Type F visa. Diplomats also don't have work permits. If less than 30 days, no visa needed. If flying on military aircraft, a passport isn't needed. They will stamp a memorandum. This is all setup before hand of course. 

This is a great exercise, I enjoyed it when I did it a few years ago.

If I said what I really think about any Western nation co-operating and collaborating with this military - I would be banned for life!

I was not born yesterday: I don't believe for one second all the propaganda that is churned out about any of this. Do people really think these marvellous militaries are the world's saving Godsend? 

I for one do not!

Of course Thailand has soldiers.  But.  Cobra Gold as as its mission Humanitarian Civic Assistance, community engagement, and medical activities conducted during the exercise to support the needs and humanitarian interests of civilian populations around the region.  

Designed to make stronger ties between the two militaries and countries.

OK, I'll get in first:

Do all the soldiers have work permits?

Is bricklaying a job reserved for Thai nationals only?

<for the hard-of-learning: humour mode - OFF>

Gold just gold. 😁

 Participated in several of them. Enjoyed working with the Thai military.  Also, got to drop a bunch of new Thai Police out of the back of the airplane, so they could get their jump wings. Some were girls too.

Hook, line and sinker.

 

It's Yank imperialism at its dwindling best.

Yes, being a part of Cobra gold automatically provides work permit.  Cobra Gold maintains a consistent focus on Humanitarian Civic Assistance, community engagement, and medical activities conducted during the exercise to support the needs and humanitarian interests of civilian populations around the region. Exercise Cobra Gold is an annual exercise conducted in the Kingdom of Thailand with seven full participating nations.  Might want to check maybe your little country is also participating.  

And makes invasion simpler, should it ever be 'required'.

Are Russian forces part of Cobra Gold? 

 

Australian, New Zealand, Canadian, UK, French and German "POSs", as you succinctly call them, have never been seen doing it either!  To stick with your description, have the "POS" Yanks ever built a school in Russia?

Why??? Thailand can't build scools? Thailand has no soldiers who can do labour??

"Why??? Thailand can't build scools?"

Clearly you can't write or spell very well but can't you read either?  Didn't you read the OP? Thais are involved in the construction, have another look at the very first word in the title!
