Staggering that MPs on both sides of the divide would not howl this down.  The 'I'm alright, Jack' syndrome and <deleted> the poor.

Prayut said this budget is in line with the government’s 20-year national strategy (2018-2037),

Prayut's 20 year national strategy will count for nought when General Apirat instigates the next coup. He has made it clear it is his turn next. Then the military budget will be more that twice what it is now.

I am not seeing it....the need for the exravagent  purchase of some military equipment that is to be bought into service in the coming years.  The purchase of a  submarine....one,  three or 5 just doesn't make sense.  The purchase of another landing ship.....why?  More tanks......  I think other posters on this thread have got it.  It's an ego trip at the expense of the peasant class and down trodden.  Just one submarine and it's associated running costs could pay for several new dental hospitals (badly needed) and their running costs.   And that budgeted 518 billion baht at the discression of the PM and govt ministers is nothing more than a cash cow to be milked for all its worth.  Not that I am  pointing the finger at anyone in particular.....

Luckily you're not pointing your finger, they still have attitude retraining for those that do.
