LETTER TO THE BANGKOK POST RE THAI/AMERICAN RELATIONS
August 9, 2003 edition
Letter to the editor, printed in Postbag

also not need American tourists, or American purchases of Thai rice and shrimp,
How much is Mr. Thaksin willing to sacrifice to please Burma's generals? Why would Mr. Thaksin undermine a long-standing strategic alliance with the world's leading national power in favor of a gang of murderous, drug-dealing thugs?
