Thai senator questions the necessity of US troops in joint exercise now

Senator Kamnoon Sidhisamarn proposes an amnesty bill as a way to bring about national reconciliation.

 

Senator Kamnoon Stthisamarn has questioned the necessity of the arrival of US troops in Thailand, for joint exercises with their Thai counterparts, despite objections from the CCSA.

 

Writing in his Facebook post today, the Senator said that the latest extension of the state of emergency maintains the CCSA as the command centre for management of the COVID-19 situation in Thailand, in a cohesive way and under a set of common standards, as the global COVID-19 pandemic remains a matter of serious concern.

 

He said that the majority of Thai people understand the need to have the CCSA in place.


“What is this all about sir?” asked Mr. Kamnoon, adding that the CCSA did not want the American troops to come, but could prevent it.

 

110 US troops arrived from Guam and Japan yesterday and today (Tuesday) for the joint exercise with Thai troops, codenamed “Hanuman Guardian 20”.

 

The US troops underwent swab tests on arrival, as any Thai person does when arriving from abroad, and they are now in state supervised quarantine in private hotels, in Bangkok and Pathum Thani, at the expense of the US government.

The government most probably got a nice "donation" from the U.S, non of which will ever be disclosed.

A nice bonus for the cronies at the helm. 

"Military aid" gone directly to those who make the decisions, the generals.

Not to mention the 30,000 baht per person hotel stay. Oh, wait a minute, that 30 grand would be for a normal person. In this case the U.S. government is paying for military personnel and that would no doubt double the fee at a minimum.

He would probably prefer joint exercises with his new buddies in China.

Hopefully the Americans will impress upon them the need to counter the Chinese masses and their threat of world domination!
